Welcome to Impulse, your one-stop shop for gadgets, gizmos and gear. Compiled by staff writer Erik Stordahl, Impulse provides you with the latest & greatest and what’s currently hot on the market. This week, we continue to look at summer hotspots for your family, friends and bros.
De La Salle summer camps.
These will be going on throughout the month of June on the De La Salle campus. Come join us at the SSM media tent where we’ll have a Heavenly Greens putting challenge, Jamba Juice fundraiser and tons of goodies from our friends at Mountain Mike’s, Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and more. Also, come hang out with supporters of De La Salle athletics like Concord Disposal and Rocco’s Ristorante and Pizzeria. Fun will be had.
Alameda County Fair.
If you’re looking for more rides, games and cotton candy to make your stomach explode, then you gotta hit up the Alameda County Fair. It’s going down June 20 to July 8. There will be tons of live music so you’ll need your dancing shoes to get down to the likes of Salt ‘n’ Pepa, Tower of Power and The Temptations. Booyeah.
We know a ton of you are Giants fans and we just wanted to make sure you’re aware of the deal our friends at AAA have going on right now. Turn to our SportStars of the Week page and you’ll find that you can win two tix to a luxury suite at an upcoming game. All you have to do is call and get a quote. That’s it! Just tell ’em you found ’em in SportStars and you’ll be entered to be treated like royalty at AT&T.
East Bay Summer Camps.
If you were unable to get your kid into one of the prestigious DLS camps, send ’em on over to East Bay Summer Camps. HQ’d in Walnut Creek, they offer everything from sports camps like tackle and flag football, softball, volleyball, basketball to specialty camps like skateboarding, teen leadership, even television production! Whatever your kids are passionate about, they can learn more and grow at one these summer camps.
Big 5 Sporting Goods.
Be sure to always check big5sportinggoods.com for cool deals. Right now, they’ve got a coupon that’s good for 15 percent off your entire purchase. And it’s good through the 4th of July! Look, for most of you it’s the offseason and high time to replenish the shoes, cleats, gloves, balls, rackets, etc.
Dianne Adair Enrichment Centers.
Parents! Send your kids to Dianne Adair for daily summer camps and field trips that feature going to Giants games, scavenger hunts, the Oakland Zoo, Alcatraz and more! It keeps them busy AND out of the house so you don’t have to hear them complain about how “there’s nothing to dooooo” all summer.
