Hell Fire Demon Dance...and a Happy Hour

Jack London Square lights up the waterfront with fire-themed entertainment at Jack’s Glow and Fire Show! Free to attend, this show will offer a taste of Oakland’s vibrant fire dance and flow arts featuring poi, fire hoopers, fire spinners, fire jugglers and more. Ok maybe no Demand...but yes fire. The show starts at 6:30 at the plaza stage at the end of Broadway. We will most likely not be able to find each other at the show. So after watching the crazy people play with fire, we will meet for drinks at one of my favorite mid-week watering holes: Merchants' Saloon. If you have leather you should wear it. I like this place because their prices are great and it is a hardcore dive bar with high end booze.

Transportation to JLS is easy on the Free B bus from a Broadway BART station or just make the 15 minute walk from the 12th street station.

Bonus Recommendation: If you choose to get dinner before or after I would highly recommend the Fat Lady. They are known for their Halloween decorations. Reservations are usually a good idea.

    This was a really nice event made better by good people and good cheer. New and old friends were met and the fire entertainment was family friendly. No debauchery seen :-(

    Just careful about standing too close to the heat lamps, otherwise feel a burning sensation on your head :-)

      We'll still be there and I'd wager Rick can't leave merchants by 8.30.

    Anyone who wants to meet for drinks beforehand, how about the Lungomare patio around 5:30, which is right by the Pavilion Stage. It's the same owners as Chop and Tribune Tavern = good times!

    I will be accepting cash at Merchants if anyone wants to pay for the Haunted Hotel party...just an option. I would rather people pay thru PayPal but if this works for you, OK. THERE WILL BE NO MONEY TAKEN AT THE DOOR THE NIGHT OF THE EVENT everyone must pay in advance....rules if the hotel.

      How about if we meet at the Lungomare patio for drinks at 5:30? It's near the stage too. :)

    Can i bring my son to the fire show part? Maybe we will have to hit up the Fat Lady for the decor.

    1 · October 18, 2013

    • Rick

      The fire show is most likely family friendly although it could be scantily clad if I know Oakland.

      October 18, 2013

    • April

      Thanks Rick. I'm sure he's seen worse on tv, as long as the all bits are covered, should be ok. Is any one going to that restaurant you mentioned? We obviously won't be hitting the bar. ;)
