Re: “El Huarache Azteca

Family owned restaurant from Oakland who bring a unique taste of Mexico City Cuisine. This restaurant has stayed true to its ingredients and Mexican Recipes. Huitlacoche quesadillas and the green pozole are among my favorite dishes. Weekends are a must for their smoke lamb.

Re: “AMF Southshore Lanes

Hello My name is Joyce Bellot:
I was at your Bowling Alley 1/27/17 where I hosted a party for my daughter and friends. The party was for some people with unique mental, physical, and emotional challenges. The total group was 15 people , they had a wonderful time! Your Host Monica K and Brady checked in frequently with me to see if everything was going well, and when there were problems they were right on hand to fix or resolve issues! So hats off to South Shore Lanes for helping me to provide such a fun memorable event for my daughter and friends! Your staff was very friendly and fun! I won"t hesitate
to use your facility again.


Sincerely


Joyce Bellot

Re: “Larb Thai Food & Tapas

went a few weeks ago In Feb.2107...3 of agreed....except for the papaya salad & the grilled pork intestine which was decent all the other dishes were too sweet & or other wise unappealing. Made me a bit wary of Tsai's taste references. Bangkok boat noodles with well done pork liver which as you imagine was texturally offal! The pork hock entree had very little overcooked stringy meat. sorry but Won't return..sweet family though good luck to them

Re: “Berkeley's Special City Council Election Zeroes In On Housing, Homelessness Issues

Ben Gould has no experience but school and is in his early twenties. Kate Harrison has worked in government for at least twenty years. She is also invited as a consultant around the world as governments try to improve their system of governance. Kate managed the SF entire court system for years.

This kid, Ben, tells completely different speeches depending on his audience. He's a classic flip flopper: he says progressive things to progressive audience and conservative things to real estate interests.

We need honesty and ingegrity. Kate has it and Ben's wildly divergent campaign speeches suggests he'll say anything to win, which indicates a lack of integrity.

Interesting that you only have his campaign donations through 2016. He is said to be raking in real estate money and he has been seen meeting with Tom Bates, our finally-gone bad mayor.

Re: “Biff’s Coffee Shop In Oakland Was Googie Glory

Let's face facts. I knew Biff's as a kid long, long ago. Even then it was kind of seedy and run down. By the time it shut down in '96, it was more than tired.

Euphoric recall is wonderful, but it's also a fantasy... Today being driven by what I think of as carpet baggers... People who came here long after the glory days of the east bay, ignoring the blight that it became and to an extent still suffers from... Boarded building, out of control city administration and rampant crime in the streets.

I don't see anyone complaining about the loss of the Merritt Bakery. It was open 7/24 had great inexpensive food... and tended to catch fire from time to time.

It's time to rebuild Oakland, not worship a long gone past.

Re: “NBC Paid for Ghost Ship Operator Derick Almena's Hotel Room During Exclusive Interview

What the fuck, Charles C. Eroster?! Who the fuck do you think you are? You obviously have absolutely no fucking idea what you are talking about and it is people like you who would (and did) elect a white supremacist fascist to reign over the FREE states of America and kill all hope for anyone other than idiot middle class white men to live peacefully and happily in the country that promised them "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." You are the disgusting storm cloud that robs all the sunlight and beauty from the world and I hope that your life is doomed to mediocrity and you die knowing that you did this whole thing called life completely wrong.

Re: “Lake Merritt Dance Center

This should be http://www.LakeMerrittDance.com. The website listed above is no longer accurate, and Lake Merritt Dance Center (a former Master Renter) does not have authority by the City of Oakland to represent all of the over 22 Dance Programs and dance communities that are still continuing at the 200 Grand Avenue, Veteran's Memorial Building. See http://www.lakemerrittdancecenter.info for the correct information about the current management of the evening and weekend programs at this lovely historical building

Re: “Biff’s Coffee Shop In Oakland Was Googie Glory

It seemed possible to plan a taller denser residential building toward Broadway, and to keep a googie icon. The building was pretty cool at one time, particularly loved the big windows and the rounded interior dining room.

Re: “Comedic Web-Series The North Pole Takes on Gentrification in North Oakland

Does the producer of this series not realize that he's part of very gentrification that he's lampooning? And that rather than shine a light on this issue, he's just contributing to it. Potentially profiting from it. Maybe his friend Dania should have mentioned this to him rather than stating that people from North Oakland are polar bears and having him listen to a Mistah FAB song.

Re: “Oakland’s Most Iconic Tree Is Named After A Socialist Firebrand: Jack London (Of Course)

Jack London was able to buy his farmland cheap because it had been over-farmed and considered useless. He used organic techniques he learned while a war correspondent abroad to restore the soil. He hoped that in the future the land would be able to support 40 families, but he died too young to see that through.

I'm not sure why running a working ranch makes one a "champagne socialist". Ask any working ranch owner how luxurious that life is.

Re: “Oakland’s Most Iconic Tree Is Named After A Socialist Firebrand: Jack London (Of Course)

Jack London earned a reputation early on as the "Boy Socialist" and for the most part he was all talk. He was in favor of women's sufferage but was patriarchal toward the two women who were his wives. Later, he lived the life of a gentleman farmer at Beauty Ranch. He was like most people whose actions fall short of their words.

Re: “City of Oakland Clears Out The Village Homeless Encampment

Garry Ovalbach...I can understand your concern as a property owner, but dumping the houseless population off in another city is not a solution...it's simply handing what you consider a problem off to someone else. Do you think the same thing you complain about won't also be the concerns of homeowners in Richmond as well. Do you assume that Richmond doesn't have it's own houseless population to deal with? This is a much more complex issue than just moving them to another town. Let's not forget that these are human beings.
