I lived a block from Baggy's By the Bay in the late 70s. I've visited as recently as three years ago. Yeah, this is the ultimate dive. But what about that piano bar near Grand Lake theater. Don't forget Kip's, Berkeley, a 50s student dive, still diving.
#11 has been the site of two (2) well-documented gang-initiated or gang-involved shootings, one in 2008, the other in 2012. See here:
Been to every bar on the list at 10 times Lucky 13 Alameda by far the best
bar in the east bay if not the hole bay area
The Avenue on telegraph in oakland is the best bar ever a good place to drink ,good mix of customers
The Lemon Tree is the best!!!! I have swilled many a potent 'cocktail' before 10am there and enjoyed the place. A real gem.
How could you forget the Oakland First Fridays Event?
Oakland First Fridays
Art, music, food, fun, community, celebration!
on Telegraph Ave. from W. Grand to 27th St the first Friday of every month from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm
I implore any poor unknowing soul who reads this article to not visit The Lemon Tree. If you are in Alameda and need a dive bar, try Lost Weekend or kick it up a notch and go to Lucky 13, you can still get a cheap PBR there.
Great and fun article !
Kelly I think you simply misread the article. Timeless provides only vegan pastries, but doesn't announce that they are vegan, not wanting a non-vegan to be turned off by the only vegan pastries.
I give you a Way to Go lady!!!
It is so refreshing to watch people that have the same concerns work together. Those who wish to tear down the efforts aren't needed, let them go work in their own states. I think this is the start of something great ...
Such an uplifting and hopeful read. I wish Rebecca Katz the best of the best with the movement.
Rebecca Katz is a smart, resourceful, fierce defender of animals. Oakland is lucky to have her help.
The way she was treated in San Francisco was appalling. All she was doing was advocating for the resources to do her job. In a place as wealthy as San Francisco there was no excuse for not funding ACC adequately.
I wish Ms. Katz the best of luck in Oakland. Welcome to Oakland. I hope you find what you need here. Please know we are glad you are here.
Although I agree with the general move towards raw for cats, grinding bones removes three major benefits found in eating raw, unground bones.
1) Raw, unground bones act as "nature's toothbrush" for cats;
2) They provide a physical crunch pleasure for those sharp teeth. (A major reason kibble is popular is that it faintly approximates crunching small bones such as found in mice and small birds.)
3) They also provide emotional release for animals whose teeth were intended to gnaw on raw meat and raw bones in the wild.
That said, the best size bird bones for cats (commercially available) are quail.
Awesome to see the immediate improvements at OAS since Katz came on board. I'm sure that place will continue on its upward trend with her at the helm.
Ms. Lindquist should reach out to her southern neighbors in Ventura County which celebrated achieving No Kill status in 2014. http://www.simivalleyacorn.com/news/2015-01-23/Front_Page/County_shelters_celebrate_nokill_status.html?fb_action_ids=10204101121381784&fb_action_types=og.likes
A whole new world at OAS. It's so good to hear someone new is there, and the OPD is out!
