This lady is amazing! In just 2 conversations she made me a better person, a better parent and a better paraprofessional! That was in 1990's and has stayed with me all these years!
"that part of Tele has those stupid bike lanes so it drags through there"
Amen, preach it! Used to be that you could blow through there at 20 miles above the posted speed limit. Now cars have to sometimes obey the law for a few blocks...it's ridiculous. Now the walk/bike fanatics are trying to extend it to other streets, too:
I agree people should be able to use e-commerce when purchasing at dispensaries.
I think this is a great opportunity to provide for people who want to legally engage in the sale of cannabis for medical use.
when the public compares the welfare of blacks to whites, they do not consider the more stable members of the black community, they always focus on the noise that is being made to draw attention like the celebrities and athletes, etc. there is a mainstream in the black community as with the general community where every body is not making noise but just going about their business and living their own lives. if you were to ask many of these regulars if they had the chance to return to the days of the forties, fifties and sixties in this country many would gladly return to those days. everything is not about comparing these with those as some of us live our lives as absolutely as we can and are satisfied to do that without comparing themselves to others. we call this the good life and to be able to live the good life free of constant comparisons where it is already determined who will come up short. when i first entered college in the deep south, i know for a fact there were teachers in white schools that had nothing to do with degrees or credentials. it was just white business and no one else's. but, i had to get the degrees and then come back to the black community for sharing. with some cultures, there is the notion that if you keep those that might pose a threat to you in the dark, you won't have to do much yourself to stay ahead. keeping blacks in the dark via slavery, segregation, seperation and satanism has resulted in a general knowledge that any race, not just the white race in america can out pace blacks in this country. that is because all they do is pull out the comparison charts and as usual blacks always come up short. if blacks do not treat themselves as absolutes and equals, other races wil not either. why look around for god in someone else? it begins with you, it continues with you and it will end with you.
"Paying homage to those who came before them" should include giving credit where credit is deserved. Instead of women in the industry getting praised and acknowledged for their talent and contributions they undervalued and quickly forgotten.
Juana Ojeda worked for Nido for one year as a bartender. She was the one that created the recipe for the Tres Rojas margarita pictured in the article. It has been one of the restaurants top margarita sellers for the last three years.
During her 7 year tenure at Tamarindo as a bartender she was also responsible for creating their Tamarindo margarita recipe. 10 years later it's still on the menu and a crowd favorite.
No love for Shooting Star Cafe and Pacific Renaissance Plaza's Gum Kuo and the new and improved Cafe 88? Also, Saint Anna's best kept secret is their Hong Kong style sizzling plate steak set dinners which are served all day. They cost much less than what you usually pay at Outback, Texas Roadhouse or Black Angus but twice as good.
I've been here a few times and it is consistently good food and service. A top 5 or 10 in Alameda for sure. It is too bad their bakery next door has apparently closed as it was nice too.
Hey Vinnie, you just proved my points. Enjoy your day!
Good going, Luke! It's also worth pointing out that there's good food in Chinatown after midnight -- especially at New Gold Medal and Shooting Star.
And has anyone else noticed (once beyond the stink) how similar durian tastes to marzipan??? Talk about East/West fusion!
