In our February 22 Insider’s Guide report on Oakland’s Temescal district, “A Transformation Continues,” we erroneously stated that Sacred Wheel cheese shop sells wine. It does not.

In the same issue’s report on Hayward and San Leandro, “Cities of Hidden Treasures,” we failed to mention that Drake’s Barrel House also features its regular beers and specialties in addition to its barrel-aged stouts.

In our February 22 theater review, “Molière in Modern Medicine,” we erroneously stated that the Shotgun Players staged a production of The Miser in 2004. In fact, that was Berkeley Rep, and it was for the company’s 2005-2006 season.
