At Temescal Works, we’re not all work, all the time. We’re also big on movies, donuts, coffee, wine and cheese. Oh, and pie. We like pie, too.

In the last month alone, our neighborhood co-working space has played host to a coffee tasting with local roaster, Modern Coffee; a morning of donut indulgence, with sugary fried dough provided by Oakland stalwart, Donut Savant; and an evening of wine and cheese, coupled with a film screening that showcased the work of two local filmmakers: Temescal resident Darryl Jones, and Temesecal Works member Bradley Furnish. (He sits upstairs; great guy; say hi sometime).

Then, last week, on March 14, the good people from Slate Geotechnical Consultants, who have an office upstairs in our building, celebrated Pi Day (you know, 3/14) by throwing a pie party around our kitchen table nook.

All of which is to say that along with being a neighborhood co-working space, we aim to be a community gathering place, a cool but comfortable venue for everything from cultural events to casual get-togethers.

We encourage you, as members of our community, to come to us with ideas for events and gatherings you’d like to see.

Meantime, keep an eye out for word about an evening tapas party. We’re plan to get one on the books soon.
