Re: “Take a Tour of Oakland's Most Impressive Murals

You could also check out (and add to) this immense list of murals on OaklandWiki: https://localwiki.org/oakland/Murals. There are over 500 murals on here, all collected by members of the community.

The majority of them are mapped- click the map, a neighborhood, and go!

Re: “Top Twelve Dive Bars in the East Bay

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:

Re: “Top Twelve Dive Bars in the East Bay

The Lemon Tree is the best!!!! I have swilled many a potent 'cocktail' before 10am there and enjoyed the place. A real gem.

Re: “Top Twelve Dive Bars in the East Bay

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.

Re: “To Wi-fi or Not to Wi-fi?

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.

Re: “A New Age for Sheltering in Oakland

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.

Re: “A New Age for Sheltering in Oakland

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.

Re: “Slow Food for Felines

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.

Re: “A New Age for Sheltering in Oakland

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.

Re: “A New Age for Sheltering in Oakland

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!
