Thousand Oaks Neighborhood Adventures

Filed under: Uncategorized — serkes @ 11:30 am

After working out at the Berkeley YMCA (one of the wonderful institutions of Berkeley), I stopped to pick up mail at our Post Office Box on Solano Avenue.

Who did I meet but Carol … and Alex Yaskin, the roaming accordianist!

So, we put some money in his tip jar, and I asked him to serenade us. Carol chose “The Girl From Ipanema”. Imagine the scene… Carol (born in Newcastle-On-Tyne) and Ira (born in Manhattan), being serenaded on the accordian with a Brazilian Bossa Nova song by Alex (from Russia) in Berkeley California. Want Alex to play music for one of your parties… ring up his cell phone at 510-484-5952 and tell him Ira & Carol referred him.

Just one of the many reasons I love living in Berkeley!

Want to shop on Solano Avenue? Buy a Kensington or Albany Home, or one of the Berkeley houses in the Thousand Oaks, Northbrae, or Berkeley Hills Neighborhoods.
