Upcoming Events


City Trivia Night XV

Young Urbanists 6:00 p.m.
The much-loved City Trivia Night is back at SPUR! Six themed rounds of searing questions relating to cities, architecture, urban planning and policy make this event the ultimate showcase of urbanist talent and planning geekery. Bring your own team of six or join up with other urbanists at the event to compete for the crown and prizes.

Visualizing Oakland in 2100

Young Urbanists 6:00 p.m.
In the game Oakland 2100, players work together to imagine the future of the city, navigating trade-offs, prioritizing and placing investments, and engaging in the type of negotiations that happen in the building of cities every day. Join us for an interactive evening, facilitated by students of UC Berkeley’s Master of Urban Design program, as we manipulate a giant, 9-foot by 9-foot scale model to imagine the future possibilities for the whole of downtown Oakland.
