Re: “Mid-Week Menu: LocoL Expands to West Oakland; Burma Bear and Agave Open Uptown

The owners must not have read or don't care about the reviews of the location on Broadway.I cannot think of a good reason why they would want to open another location when so many people have commented about the food lacking. The taste of the food is basic at best.

Re: “Mama’s Royal Cafe Is for Sale

How about the employees buy it? Like they did at Zachary's...

Clearly Danny Hipps is unhappy about having to pay his drywall employees in Carlsbad anything close to a living wage.

Re: “Mama’s Royal Cafe Is for Sale

As a former Mama's worker and someone who got his start in the restaurant business there cleaning the kitchen, I'm happy to read that George wants to find an owner who really understands the ambiance and vibe of this place.

I want to thank George M, Spencer Moore II, Julie Moore, and George Russell, for having the imagination, pioneering spirit, and perseverance that breathed life into this incredible restaurant initially, and to Mr. Marino and everyone who's worked there to sustain it over the years.

My life would not be the same without you!!!

That's what happens when you have it your heart and soul and decided to spend your silver years with your the person you love and that has been by your side supporting you. Danny Hippo I don't think it is about a $3.25 minimum wage hike.

Re: “Mama’s Royal Cafe Is for Sale

This is what happens when you hike minimum wage from $9 to $12.25 overnight.

Re: “Mid-Week Menu: A Coffee Box, a Sicilian Spinoff, and ‘Broffee’

Matt, I've never found Luke wanting as a food critic, and I suspect that he knows the meaning and significance of "craft coffee drinks."

Here's a hint -- in this case, regarding "artisanal bottled water":

Re: “New Oakland-Made Saurkraut Takes Shots at Uber, Mayor

The photograph on the label was stolen, without credit or compensation, from freelance photographer Chris Duffey, a longtime contributor to Oakland Magazine and the East Bay Express. A representative of Phat Beets declined to cease using the photo when informed that it was stolen. So much for the ethics and good works of Phat Beets Produce, I guess.

Re: “After Fifty Years, Nellie's Soulfood Restaurant Says Goodbye

Great food, truly awful, terrible, no good, very bad service. It was time for them to move on - their hearts weren't in it anymore.

"“Craft coffee drinks” — whatever that means" Luke, you might want to sit down, because this bit of truth I'm about to tell you is clearly going to rock your world: Luke, you're a food critic.

This is the link to our youth site http://www.phatbeetsproduce.org/phatbeetzp… to buy our products

Re: “New Oakland-Made Saurkraut Takes Shots at Uber, Mayor

Ahh Luke. We send you so many positive press releases about our youth programs, our work to distribute food grown at Castlemont High School, our Double EBT work and you just love to write about controversial things. Did you highlight our kraut that pays for fruit trees to planted in Southern Madagascar by a sister collective? Or that the products contain produce grown by youth and small farmers of color? How about posting a link to our sites to buy our youth products to help us employee youth. Nope, how sad :(

Re: “Barclay's Pub Forced to Leave Rockridge after 25 Years

Bijan,

I must disagree. Perhaps you had a bad day, as all businesses have, but in the 23 years I've been coming to Barclays it has always been family friendly. I started as a patron and started bringing my daughters with me. They were always treated with respect. Both started working there as their first jobs, and my younger daughter, who started as a hostess at 15 now is assistant manager and orders the beer. There is not a day goes by that there is not a stroller in the pub or on the patio. The proposed "theme" pub, with a full bar, will alienate many of these families who feel comfortable coming here. It will be a true loss for Rockridge.
