Weekend Eats & Drinks, 5/30/12

Jack London Square looks to capitalize on First Fridays traffic by hosting Jack's Night Market. Featuring Oakland crafts, artisans, designers, performers, musicians and food vendors, the night market runs from 6 to 10 P.M. Friday. Get a free ride from First Fridays in Uptown to Jack London on the B shuttle. Saturday, North Berkeley holds its annual Chocolate and Art festival from 10 to 5 P.M. in the Gourmet Ghetto. Admission is free though chocolate tasting tickets are $1 each. Try specialties like chocolate goat cheese truffles, chicken mole, picante habanero chocolate chunk gelato and more. The family-friendly event includes a chalk art contest where guests are invited to create their own sidewalk masterpieces for judging at 4 PM. Sunday from 11 to 1, Three Squares hosts a fundraiser brunch at Pauley Ballroom, UC Berkeley. Tickets start at $22 and include admission to hear Bi-Rite Market owner Sam Mogannam deliver the key note and a farm-fresh meal with live jazz. Bring some extra cash for the silent auction and raffle drawings that include a day with a Napa Valley winemaker, a private cooking party, a catered lunch for your office, restaurant gift certificates and more. Three Squares teaches cooking and nutrition to at-risk families.
