- welcome to days with zahrah. i'm your host, zahrah farmer. today i want to dedicate our show to mr. douglas gey, who recently passed away. not only was doug one of my best friends, and really like my brother, but doug also helped to get this show to where we're at. he was our director of photography, handled all of our technical stuff, and really was just so much the heart of what we do. on behalf of our team and our crew, "we love you doug, and we adore you." "we miss you already, so much." thank you for everything that you did. let's get to the show. - one, two, three, four. (upbeat music)
- [zahrah] what is it that makes the bay area so doggone special? well, the people. the sense of community that goes hand in hand with the remarkably beautiful destinations that we have, and the neighborhoods, the insanely good food, wine, beer and spirits, and the fact that in one moment you can be at the beach, an hour later skipping through a vineyard, and three hours later in the snow. yep. (laughs) those are just a few of the reasons why we all live here. today we are kicking off our travels in oakland, and alameda, and then later we head up to lake county and we cap the day off in glen ellen. one day we're living the city lifestyle, and the next we're in wine country. that's what is awesome about the bay area. there are so many incredible places to travel to all over the bay area,
and oakland, has not only emerged as one of the top cities to travel to in the united states, but quire frankly, it's always been great. so today we're going to show you some of our favorite, favorite places to go to eat. where to grab a beer. but first we're going to start out with, where is our favorite place to stay, here, in the town. so our first stop of the day we are checking into our hotel in oakland, at the claremont. the claremont sits majestically in both oakland and berkeley and is the perfect get away for locals, just to get away for the weekend, or, if you're visiting from out of town. tucked in the hillside, it's history is rich and it's grounds are something you've got to experience for yourself. - len, thank you so much for having us. i remember growing up and always seeing the hotel up on the hill and then like, as i even got older and all i'd be like, "i'm going to get married there." it's majestic. - [len] the property was purchased in 1898 i believe, by a gentleman named bill thornburg.
he made his money in the gold rush, and so he decided he wanted to build his home. he had a daughter who fashioned all things english, so he made it resemble an english castle, so to speak. lot's of things went on and it fell into the hands of a gentleman named frank havens and a gentleman named borax smith. they had this vision of taking this property and then turning it into some form of a hotel. as the story goes, these two gentleman, over time didn't get along very well, they had, sort of little conflicts with their plans. so they decided to wager the property that they both owned, and they wagered it in a checkers match. - incredible. as the story has it, havens won. opened as a hotel in 1915 and from that moment on, 100 years later, and between that it's become the hotel to be in the bay area. - i'm just happy i finally got a chance to meet you and talk a little bit about all the great things that are going on here, and get to see it. - we'll have to have you over for afternoon tea. we do a tea in this space
