Does he appreciate a good cocktail? Then head to the Victorian storefronts of downtown’s petite Old Oakland district, where the even more petite Umami Mart presents a tightly edited selection of barware from Japan. Our suggestion: the Tokyo Mule set: two copper mugs and a bottle of Berkeley-made spicy ginger shrub (to use in place of ginger ale).
