Consider becoming famous
After your art immersion on 25th, jump back into the street fair fray by crossing Telegraph to the 25th St Stage. Check out the acts and realize that you, too, can perform for the people of Oakland. If you’re an unsung hip-hop hero or band nerd, you should totally apply.
Take a break for food trucks
You’ve probably worked up an appetite at this point, and fortunately, the final one and a half blocks of the fair are dedicated to an awesome range of snacks: BBQ, tacos, tamales, wings, po-boys, Indian food, pies... almost anything your little heart desires. The fair’s only alcohol vendor -- a sake garden where you can sip concoctions like Sake Coladas in style -- allows you to booze it up while you get your snack on, too.
Pick up a piece to take home
Make your way back down to the festival and find a painting or print that will cure your apartment’s walls of their current case of severe bland-itis. Plus you’ll be supporting local artists in the process -- win/win.
