Their chocolate croissants are worth writing home about, if you happen to be French.

Re: “Alameda Theatre & Cineplex

The movie theater has that old-timey feel AND perfectly buttered popcorn. The perfect place to catch a Sunday night flick.

Re: “Walden Center and School

This school is an academic fraud. Send your children here and they will be behind their peers by light years at the end of 7 years. We have been paying for for extra tutoring in spades for the last two years trying to get caught up.

It's great that your kid can work a stage, sing his/her heart out. If that is what you are looking for, this free range daycare is just the place for you.

Re: “East Bay Law School, Inc.

Will East Bay Law School reopen its door in Oakland, California? The law school was an opportunity for minority students with disabilities to learn law, otherwise many students who are disabled students might not have another opportunity at law school. The Department of Rehabilitation funded the students with disability to go to East Bay Law School. Now the doors are closed and we want funds to open the doors open again for the disabled to have an opportunity again to go to law school. Please invest in another school such as East Bay Law School in Oakland, CA

Re: “The Missouri Lounge

Re: “The Missouri Lounge

Extremely rude and uncivilized bartenders @ “The Missourie Lounge”, Berkeley, CA.

It was this Saturday, May 17th and there were two female bartenders serving that night. One is called “Nora” and other one I did not get her name but she has got tattoo all over. I was with few of my friends and I ordered some drinks. While the bartender(one with the tattoo) was getting the drinks ready, two of my other friends showed up so I requested her to add a drink to which she was already mad and acting rude for not ordering earlier. I do not know how on earth I could have done that. Well I asked if she could add yet another drink a “Corona”…….. and at this point she was so angry, looked me straight in the eye and started yelling …..
“YOU ARE KILLING ME. DO YOU WANT THE DRINKS OR NOT??
I was literally frozen for a moment trying to process my brain as to why would she be so outraged for adding two more drinks. I was very furious too to have been responded with such an attitude and extremely rude behavior only because I could not order all the drinks at the same time. So I told her if it is too much for her to get me the two drinks, I will pay for the drinks that I ordered earlier and will get the remaining two from the other bartender. But I could not believe what happened after that. As soon as she heard this, she poured all the drinks into the drain right in front of me, my friends and everyone at the bar without the slightest respect for anyone. And she started yelling again very furiously….
“I AM NOT GOING TO SELL YOU ANY DRINKS”.
I just stood there shocked again not knowing how to react. I was with a big group of friends for one of friend’s birthday party so I sucked it up and tolerated this unacceptable behavior to not ruin the party and left the bar with no drinks. Things gotten worse later when I realized that she had been treating some of my other friends very rude as well and on yet another incident later at night, the other bartender(Nora) had the nerve to snatch drinks from one of my friends and threw her out of the bar to maybe show her support and appreciation to her bartender friend’s uncivilized behavior. All of us (about more than 30 of us) left the bar that night with much disappointment but mostly confused for having received such an ill treatment from both the bartenders.
Well I am sharing this incident online in the hope that the bar management will look into this matter and deal with such uncivilized behavior from their employees whose rude actions are dragging the reputation of the entire business down the drain. I will post this excellent review on any possible sites that matters for the better of “The Missourie Lounge”.

Thanks
Your customer

Re: “Mercy Retirement & Care Center

We investigated nine facilities within 10 min. of our home in the Laurel. All had to be full service facilities with Memory Care unit. We chose Mercy for my 85-yr old MIL. She had the typical reluctance to go to "an old folks' home" but it has worked out beautifully. Within a month she was telling everyone how happy she was to be at Mercy.

The units all have views (either Bay or Hills), the food is good (3 meals daily), the 7-acre campus is safe and well-landscaped, good activities, and best of all, Mercy rates VERY HIGH in state rankings for low turnover, high staff morale, and resident satisfaction. Note that they are associated with the Alma Via homes in Northern CA; Salem Lutheran/Oakland is being sold to provide Mercy with funds for an expansion of facilities.

Altho Mercy has many Catholic residents (Mass is said every day) they do not "push" religion on anyone; we'd consider it non-denominational. There is a private senior center space on-site where classes, concerts, and meetings are held for staff and residents.
