Re: “BRIX 581

Going to Brix on a Sunday morning for chicken fried steak has become as natural as getting coffee every morning. Now that they have added the bottomless mimosas I'm a happy camper.

Re: “Catahoula Coffee Company

Real award winning coffee, not just burned beans like Peets. More like McCallums on Solano many years ago when they sold ice cream and coffee. And also, real people, of all sorts, meeting, talking, working on wifi - a great place to hang out.

Re: “Yancie Taylor's Sunday Jazz Concert and Jam Session

I cannot think of a better way to spend my Sunday evenings. Geoffrey's is a very comfortable setting, Yancie Taylor is fantastic. The band and the music are wonderful. I also love the Jam session. The dinner is only $5.00 and finger licking good.

Re: “Greg Palast film: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

Greg Palast presentation of facts left real gaps for concern. If Palast has verified documents of these horrifically inaccurate voter list frauds then why hasn't he handed them over as public records to be vetted by other journalists? No one he showed his lists to responded with any recognition of their own documents. It appeared that Palast has doctored documents. If that's the case his facts and figures become suspect. Palast's dramatic flair is fun at times, but it has gotten in the way of his respect or regard for accuracy. If his facts aren't reliable then he's significantly more hindrance to the progressive movement than he is support or whistle-blower.

Re: “The End of the Oakland Fence Saga

I am wondering why the neighbors complained in the first place? Was the fence seen as a nuisance by others the community? If so, why?

Re: “Oakland's Dive Bar Aficionados Adapt to the City's Changing Bar Scene

Hey Pilar, it is Cory from 355. I just wanted to clarify a few things in your article. Firstly, before opening as 355 the space was most recently known as Miss Ivy's I believe, Big Al's being sometime before that. The reason I am not entirely certain is that the business was actually abandoned long before we opened over six years ago. The article, I'm sure unintentionally, makes it sound as though my bosses came in and bought it out from under someone, which simply isn't the case. By the time they came along it had been shuttered for many years. It should also be noted, that they aren't some out-of-towners, or new money, that came in and swooped it up. Patrick has lived in the Bay Area since he was 18 (for the sake of his pride I won't say exactly how long that is, but trust me, it has been a minute) and Travis was born and raised in Oakland. I don't think this would fall under the category of "gentrification" as much as two guys fulfilling a dream in an empty space. As someone who has bartended in Oakland for the past thirteen years, I know the area has changed quite a bit. I remember working at Radio and being pretty much the only game in town. That being said, I think we have to be careful of just labeling all progress as bad or gentrifying. It doesn't factor in that, as with all change, some is good and well intentioned. I would like to think that we at 355 fall into that category. I'm sure you think of your job at Penrose in the same light. And hey! We have Hennessey at 355! :)

Re: “The End of the Oakland Fence Saga

Oakland has rational rules about building private structures or fences within a certain distance of creeks as part of its Creek Protection Ordinance. Since that ordinance was never referenced in this story, I don't know how to assess what happened on this process. But I suspect it was not as irrational from the city's side as it is made out to be.

Re: “Letters for the Week of September 28, 2016

Why the **** are we allowing the legalization of recreational marijuana to be smoked??? When we are trying to reduce cancer rates and other diseases linked to tobacco and marijuana use. OF course there are always fools who are reckless with their health. Sure grandpa may have smoked for 200 hundred years--but he had emphysema and was reduced to a very small world around him. DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUFFER LIKE HE AND MILLIONS OF OTHERS DID SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY DISRESPECTED WHAT WAS A SACRED ELEMENT OF OUR ABORIGINEE'S CULTURE THAT WAS NOT DONE ON A RECREATIONAL BASIS. WHY ARE CONTRIBUTING TO GLOBAL WARMING BY ADDING MORE UNNECESSARY CO2 TO THE ATMOSPHERE SMOKING AND HEATING UP OUR PLANET? Recreational use of any substance that is intended for medication is an inappropriate use and inappropriate behavior.

I have nothing against the use of marijuana for medical uses--when the delivery system is not burned or smoked, chewed but as a health care worker --I see medical marijuana as a positive thing in medicine. That said Recreational use of drugs leads to people not being in control of their lives they are driven by the drug of their recreational choice--we see this most easily in tobacco smokers where they will defend the right to smoke and fight you over it and they do not know that they often smell bad and cannot find the pleasure of good taste of foods they eat like those who are not inappropriate in such matters.

Lets helped stop global warming world wide by stop unnecessarily contributing CO2 to the world's atmosphere--we were not designed to smoke to begin with or use tobacco et al. We can save billions of dollars by not smoking or using other delivery systems and be much healthier.

Re: “Oakland's Dive Bar Aficionados Adapt to the City's Changing Bar Scene

The Kingfish always set the standard for dive bars for me, a lot of real characters hung out there. Once awhile, as I remember it, the Cal Sororiety women would all swoop in at once - I recall the old guys saying "geez, these preppy Cal girls all got fat butts now, Don't they?" I used to get a kick out of that. It's was true, 80's era preppy girls all had fat butts, they didn't work out like they do now.
