Re: “Best Cheap Haircut

Hello, I have another "well-kept-secret-address" for cheap and high-quality haircuts. It is Ivania Salon, 1906 University Ave @ Martin Luther King. The lady who runs it has 25+ years of experience and used to work with Vidal Sassoon himself but she's very modest about it. She's very nice and takes great care of her clients in addition to being an expert in her field. Check out her raving reviews on yelp. Men haircuts start at $18 & up, Women haircuts start at $25 & up. She does hair cuts and coloring.

Re: “Best Hydroponics Store

Although I enjoyed reading your article, I found "gardenenthusiest"'s comment more interesting (sorry :) )

I knew about BIG's wide range of products and stuff (I too am a fan of hydroponics systems and the alikes) but I never met such "rude" people like gardenenthusiest mentions. Never mind anyway. Just keep posting the good stuff.

Re: “Best DJ/Drum Duo

i think you'd be hard pressed to find another project like this making such great music in California, and probably the whole country as well...
if any aspiring dj's want to get an education... look here and listen hard! it takes more that serato and a good collection... it takes years of work and a drummer like Max MacVeety!

Re: “Best Wine Guru

I am so happy EBE finally found Wine Mine. A real Oakland Treasure.

Re: “Best Wine Guru

I'm a wine snob. Dave Sharp is knowledgable about his wines without being insufferable. The Wine Mine has a great selection of snob wines at reasonable prices. The best part.......Even though I may not spend a lot of money, Dave makes me feel like a special customer each time I go into his shop.

Re: “Best Wine Guru

The Wine Mine and Dave Sharp have changed my wine buying experience. I am a frugal, barbarian of a wine buyer. I mostly look for a good value with an occasional premium purchase. Dave will often "Downsell" me to a less expensive value. He will gleefully order a case or two of odd flavors that I think suit my taste and take a chance that some other wine barbarian may like them too. He cheerfully exchanges wine that just didn't suit my taste (not an empty bottle however.... he's not that cheerful) And he remembers enough about my past purchases (pretty smart guy) to steer me toward a new bottle in his ever changing inventory. The Wine Mine is just a HeckOfAWineStore.... cheers... DaveL.

Re: “Best Wine Guru

We stopped buying wine at BevMo etc.---not just because of price, but because David gets to know your likes very quickly, and then lets you know when something comes in that fits. Likewise, he will readily say "you won't like this wine." It's always an honest sale.

Re: “Best Hydroponics Store

BIG is a little more expensive than others , but the staff is knowledgeable and they have everything you need . I shop around but still buy stuff from BIG when I am in the area . Sounds like you may have an axe to grind ... Hmmmmm

Re: “Best Grub at a Nightclub

Sure, but I personally LOVED my $14 burger. The bacon jam is amazing. The fries it came with were outstanding. And I think it's originating cow was happily fed on grass and other good things. Glad you found this place; it's one of my new faves!

Re: “Most Regionally Minded Mayor

Lawngun is right and Zelda is dead wrong. Let's face it, UC should be privatized and then they would a taxpayer instead of an enormous tax burden.
But Berkeley without UC would be just another suburb, which might be an improvement if all the 60s garbage was forced to leave town.
Bates, like his dreadful wife, is a statist-collectivist to the core.
Zelda belongs to the Becky O'Malley Far Left Nimby Club of Trust Funders who can afford to shop at Whole Paychecks and no Trader Joes in 'their' city for the hoi polloi, thank you.
