love the fresh wonton wraps made with egg yolk at Yuen Hop Co. Do they still sell them?

Re: “Are Co-ops the Future of a Sustainable Restaurant Industry?

James Jazz Jr. I think you don't really understand what a worker cooperative is. People in coops don't necessarily all make the same amount of money. You could set one up that way if you like, but it's not how most of them work.

Also, as any business they have to make payroll. Not paying people for the work they put in is illegal, coop or not coop. A coop job is just as stable as a non-coop one, if not more cause a boss won't be able to fire you for arbitrary reason, and the person next to you won't be able to talk their way into a raise that you would never dare ask for.

Re: “The East Bay's Longest-Running Brunch Spots

Ole's is terrible! The food is much better at Jim's on Lincoln. BUT, the best brunch spot isn't even on this list and I'm not going to ruin it for myself by telling everyone. The lines are too long as it is.

Re: “Are Co-ops the Future of a Sustainable Restaurant Industry?

Co-ops are a great alternative way of doing business, particularly for younger people and single people who don't need a rock-steady income. However, the proponents of co-ops tend to gloss over the fact that the members equally absorb risk as well as reward. In other words, there is the possibility of a delayed or reduced paycheck from time to time as demand drops or fluctuates. For workers who need a reliable income, the top down corporate model still works better. Also, the co-op model is ill suited to certain businesses where some of the workers must put in years of education and work before even starting in business. It doesn't seem fair, for example, to pay the neurosurgeon as much as the neurosurgeon's receptionist.

Re: “The Benefits of Pasture-Raised Meat

I am Mr Adrian Dalsey From USA a DHL worker.
It is no longer news that the Acquired immune deficiency syndrome Herpes Virus is increasing by the day. The fear is that many people living with the sickness are scared of saying it because of the stigma that comes along with it.I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the voodoo world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Voodoo Priests had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Felix(A powerful African Voodoo Priest), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions.
Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that " I am NEGATIVE".
You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Voodoo Priest via this e-mail: idemudiafelix@gmail.com He will help you and his herb medication is cure.
he has the cure on all this disease as he told me and it listed.
GENITAL WARTS/ PREGNANCY. EPILEPSY. GENPILENCIN. HIV AIDS. PREGNANCY DIABETICS STROKE.
EXPANDS OF PENIS BREAST H.P.V TYPE 1 TYPE 2 TYPE 3 AND TYPE 4. TYPE 5. HUMAN PAPAILOMA VIRUS. HERPES. SYPHILIS. CANCER. HEPATITIS A B and C. HIRE BLOOD PRESSURES. AND BODY BOILS. AND BODY DISEASES . THANKS TO YOU ALL FOR YOUR TIME OF READING MY TESTIMONY AND MOST ESPECIALLY YOU Dr Felix I PRAY TO GOD TO NEVER LET ME AND MY FAMILY FORGET YOU IN OUR LIFE.

Re: “The East Bay's Longest-Running Brunch Spots

Good recommendations. La Note, Betty's, and Rick and Ann's are perennial favorites.

I go to Mama's if I feel like being insulted, kind of like Sam Wo used to be.

Re: “Are Co-ops the Future of a Sustainable Restaurant Industry?

There is a long history of economic thinking (and writing) in support of coops in all areas of production. As more efficient, less exploitative and far-more-democratic than our current corporate capitalism which exploits everyone involved other than investors and millionaire/billionaire senior managers.

There are many cooperative businesses in the US which have produced superior products over the long haul. Ever heard of Lincoln welding gear?

Re: “Are Co-ops the Future of a Sustainable Restaurant Industry?

Richard Wolff, a well-known economist, speaks eloquently of what he calls "democracy in the workplace" (aka communal businesses) as a solution to our failed capitalist system. He comes to the Bay Area to speak several times a year and he can be heard at 10 AM Fridays on KPFA's Letters & Politics show. I find his insight into our current economic state quite illuminating, and I particularly like the things he has to say about coops.

Re: “Leavening the Resistance: Reem's Brings Traditional Arab Bakery to Oakland's Fruitvale

Eli Freedman, could not with you more! So sick of their "poor me" crap! They are supposed to be Americans, but they want to stay immigrants so they can complain about their mistreatment! Maybe if they acclimated to their country and denounced terror and their bigotry and lies things would be better for them. What does it say about their mentality when they have a life size mural of a murderer in the wall? They might as well paint a picture of Charles Manson on the other wall!

Re: “Where Vegans and Meat-Eaters Happily Coexist

Great article. My fiance is vegan and I love all food! We just moved to the Bay Area and are excited to check these places out. We cook a lot at home and it is NICE to relax a little and enjoy the passionate cooking style of others. Thanks for the article!

Re: “In Praise of Oakland’s Koreana Plaza

"that part of Tele has those stupid bike lanes so it drags through there"

Amen, preach it! Used to be that you could blow through there at 20 miles above the posted speed limit. Now cars have to sometimes obey the law for a few blocks...it's ridiculous. Now the walk/bike fanatics are trying to extend it to other streets, too:

Re: “Mexican Bartenders in the East Bay Reclaim Tequila

"Paying homage to those who came before them" should include giving credit where credit is deserved. Instead of women in the industry getting praised and acknowledged for their talent and contributions they undervalued and quickly forgotten.

Juana Ojeda worked for Nido for one year as a bartender. She was the one that created the recipe for the Tres Rojas margarita pictured in the article. It has been one of the restaurants top margarita sellers for the last three years.

During her 7 year tenure at Tamarindo as a bartender she was also responsible for creating their Tamarindo margarita recipe. 10 years later it's still on the menu and a crowd favorite.

Re: “Eating Chinatown: A Walkable Guide to Oakland's Most Delicious Neighborhood

No love for Shooting Star Cafe and Pacific Renaissance Plaza's Gum Kuo and the new and improved Cafe 88? Also, Saint Anna's best kept secret is their Hong Kong style sizzling plate steak set dinners which are served all day. They cost much less than what you usually pay at Outback, Texas Roadhouse or Black Angus but twice as good.

Re: “The Anti-Sheep Mentality of Alameda's Mama Papa Lithuania

I've been here a few times and it is consistently good food and service. A top 5 or 10 in Alameda for sure. It is too bad their bakery next door has apparently closed as it was nice too.
