Oaktown

My travels also took me to across the bay to Oakland.  A friend of mine works at the McAfee Coliseum/Oracle Arena, so I was able to get a sneak peak.  Part 2 of 3.

Literally right next door is Oracle Arena, home of the Golden State Warriors.  The entrances of the two buildings are separated by only a small courtyard that spans about 50 feet.

I am not a Warriors’ player; therefore, I was not allowed to enter.

Lunch was enjoyed at this California staple, In-N-Out Burger.
