After an afternoon A's game??????

My wife and I are heading out to the bay area next week staying in SF. We will not have a car and are taking the BART from the city to a Sunday afternoon game, after which we could just come back to SF but thought of maybe heading up to Jack London Square for a few post game drinks and taking the ferry back in the evening. I dont hear great things about the square, but we love being on the water. Will it be lively at that time, thoughts or ideas? Is it easy to catch a cab after the game up to the square? Thank you in advance for your help.

Berkeley, Ca.

There's some activity in Jack London Square, but it's not really the hub of things. I'd suggest getting back on BART, taking a Richmond train, and getting off at 19th St. station. Around there you could go to any one of a number of bars--Luka's (also a restaurant), Van Kleef, The Den in the restored Fox Theatre building, or others. It's not on the water, but it's more the center of bar/restaurant activity. When you're done, you could take BART back to the city, or go 20 blocks down Broadway and catch the ferry.

Jack London square doesn't have a whole lot, but there are two very worthwhile spots: Heinold's Last Chance Saloon, pretty much the most charming bar you will ever see, and Everret and Jone's BBQ, great for a meal...

yes there should be taxis at the BART station at the stadium. also you can take BART to 12th St. Oakland station and the square is about a 10-15 min walk from there.
