Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

I would really like more diversity in the sound. Salsa is fine, but how about incorporating Mexican and Central American sounds - you know - reflective of the music of the majority of Latinos who live in the bay area. Salsa nights always turn into a very Americanized performative sport anyways.

Re: “Bedtime for the Night Light Means a New Day for the Elbo Room

"They installed custom brass-tacked leather chairs, lit the place with bare-filament bulbs, and stuffed the cocktail menu with whiskey."

Whiskey stingily poured from a jigger and sold at $15/drink in a plastic cup. No doubt to pay for the fancy chairs.

Pro tip- if you are going to charge a fortune for the drinks, at least give a good pour into a decent glass. Bars make their money on liquor sales, no?

Well, charging too much for a crappy pour is a good way to not make money. Because while you'll make $13 profit on the first drink, you won't be making any more, because I won't feel compelled to buy a second, or return at any point in the future to buy more.

Hell, for the price of two drinks, I'd rather just buy the bottle and have friends come over.

Re: “On the Phenomenon of Burger Boogaloo — and the Oakland Couple Who Makes It Happen

There's obviously an opening available for a reasonably priced (but professionally run) alternate music festival, especially given the half-death of the Austin Psych Fest and the totally terrible dust conditions at Desert Daze. Please let Burger be that place. Get the line shit figured out WELL BEFORE THE CONCERT since Desert Daze didn't. Have enough actual food vendors (not just frilly vegan-friendly junk, real food) available. And have fun. All of these things CAN be done in the same place. Let's have this be that place.

Recommendations appreciated -- Ragana I name-checked there in the intro and I agree that Russell Butler's "I'm Dropping Out of Life" is solid and noteworthy. Will look into Kevin Allen Project!
