Re: “Best Year-Old Theater Company

Just Deserts was great--it's amazing how looking at these old stories through new eyes has helped me understand how women fit in the world and in our culture. Explains a lot of weird and real-world experience. Those Women just started a fundraising campaign, I gave them some $ and hope others do too. http://igg.me/at/twp2015/x/11544782
And speaking of disclosure (the great play coming up), I have followed Carol Lashof's work for years--ever since I married into the family.

Re: “Best Oakland-Branded Beer Brewed in Walnut Creek

...isn't it: "Best Oakland-Branded Beer Whose Offices Are in Walnut Creek and Then Brewed in San Jose"? Seems like a pretty slim candidate pool for a very specific award.

Re: “Best Organization for Group Walks

Thank you! But it's not just me: Paul Rosenbloom, Chris Kidd, Dan Schulman, Neal Parish and others are part of Oakland Urban Paths, too (Paul and Dan founded OUP)

Re: “Best Volunteer Animal Rescue Group

Do NOT feed ownerless cats. It just attracts more cats, raccoons, skunks etc. The fastest way to reduce feral cat numbers is trap and REMOVE them. If they are not suitable for re-homing, euthanise, and then go trap some more cats again before the next breeding cycle. Neutering and feeding cats does NOT reduce the feral cat population overall as the necessary neutering rates are never actually reached (95%) while intact cats immigrate to the food source, perpetuating the breeding problems.

Re: “Best Twitter Hashtag for Oakland Politics

Actually I have the honor of tweeting #oakmtg first, in July 2009, when I entered it into a hashtag dictionary. It was Echa Schneider's idea and she ran the blog http://abetteroakland.com which was a forum for civic discussion before Twitter came along. A few days later the two of us and Sean livetweeted the Council meeting of July 28, 2009.

Re: “Best Political Race Heading into 2016

Maybe the top-two primary won't exist in 2016. The lawsuit against it filed by the Green, Peace & Freedom, and Libertarian Parties is still not over.

Re: “Best Volunteer Animal Rescue Group

Not effective. Not humane. Terrible for wildlife. Increases risks to public health. Infringes on landowner rights. Trap and remove.

Re: “Best A's Fan Art

This mural was painted over by the Jack London Improvement District, an association of JLS property owners. Express - can you get to the bottom of this? why would such a great mural - a source of tremendous civic pride - be painted over?

Re: “Best Use of a Fireplace

lol Very original way to make pizza dude! Definitely very creative to start cooking up your meal with a good ol 'fireplace oven'. I think it would look great as a corner fireplace like this: http://www.ethanolfireplaceshop.com/corner-fireplace-designs

Re: “Best Service at a Restaurant

I am glad I came across this article. For me, when it comes to restaurants, I think the service is more important than the food. If a server does an excellent job, has a good sense of humor, connects with me, etc. I am likely to come back even if the food is only mediocre. The next time I am in Oakland, I will definitely have to give this place a try.
