Sketch at Lost & Found by Micaela Marsden

Lost & Found Beer Garden, Oakland


Oct 6 First Thursday Public Night relocated to:
Lost & Found Beer Garden
Location: 2040 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, CA 94612
“Outdoor beer drinking without the fog”

This is an indoor/outdoor beer garden with ping-pong tables, a patio of casual picnic tables, palm trees, heaters, and a relaxed atmosphere. The owners worked on it themselves, making for a more personal style than many of the nearby, highly funded venues.

Free street parking in the evening.
Public transportation: Take BART to 19th Street Station, walk 3 blocks. 
(The walking part—walk up Broadway past the Paramount Theater, turn left on 21st Street, it’s at the corner of Telegraph Ave and 21st.)



  1. Wow!! Sketching events are so creative and inspirational. I attended some sketching events in NYC. The participants did wonderful work. I was surprised when I saw a sketch that was made by a 7 year old boy. It was just outstanding!!
