Corrections for the Week of October 31, 2012 

Mariah K. Young's birthplace, Imperial Tea Court's name, and more.

In our October 24 book preview, "To Live and Die in Oakland," we erroneously stated that author Mariah K. Young was born in Alameda; she was, in fact, born in San Leandro.

Our October 24 election story "School Closures Drive Races" erroneously stated that Oakland District 5 candidate Mike Hutchinson had worked at Lakeview Elementary. He had worked at Santa Fe Elementary. Both schools closed last year.

Our October 24 Bars, Clubs, and Coffeehouses story "From Grape to Glass" contained three errors: First, we erroneously said that DC Looney and Lisa Costa are married. Secondly, we misspelled Chris Brockway's last name. Finally, we neglected to mention that Dashe Cellars in Oakland and Edmunds St. John in Berkeley also make natural wines.

In another October 24 Bars, Clubs, and Coffeehouses story, "The Brews of Our Lives," we erroneously attributed a quote from Eric Thoreson to refer to the Aeropress as being "idiot-proof." He was actually referring to the Clever Dripper.

And in our October 24 Bars, Clubs, and Coffeehouses story "Thick, Sweet, and Strong," we got wrong the name of Imperial Tea Court.
