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: “Why So Many Bisexual Men are Still in the Closet

I agree with Matt S' comment above. Except for me I have tried coming out many times over the years. My Girlfriend of 25 years knows and sometimes is cool with it, sometimes not. I've told friends and family before and they were accepting about it at first but over time marginalized my experience by either saying I was gay or that I was looking for drama. There is so much drama in my life already and I don't see why someone would think I wanted to purposely add more to the pile. Also, I am closeted about my lifetime of experience with gender disphoria and it seems like I have gone through so much pain in my life already because of both issues that acting on either of these issues let alone both would be, one- confusing for my loved ones and associates and two- would mean even more constant pain and work for me. I've chosen to hide because of this. I don't know if I'll ever really be honest and open with myself and the world. I want to try. Lucky I live in the Bay Area and have an understanding partner. Bi men need more visibility and I hate that I might be perpetuating the problem.

Re: “Barbara Blaser Didn't Try Cannabis Until Her Seventies. Now, She's A Registered Nurse At An Oakland Dispensary.

This lady is amazing! In just 2 conversations she made me a better person, a better parent and a better paraprofessional! That was in 1990's and has stayed with me all these years!

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: “Oakland Nonprofit The Hood Incubator Helps Entrepreneurs Of Color Break Into The Cannabis Industry

I think this is a great opportunity to provide for people who want to legally engage in the sale of cannabis for medical use.

Re: “Oakland Nonprofit The Hood Incubator Helps Entrepreneurs Of Color Break Into The Cannabis Industry

when the public compares the welfare of blacks to whites, they do not consider the more stable members of the black community, they always focus on the noise that is being made to draw attention like the celebrities and athletes, etc. there is a mainstream in the black community as with the general community where every body is not making noise but just going about their business and living their own lives. if you were to ask many of these regulars if they had the chance to return to the days of the forties, fifties and sixties in this country many would gladly return to those days. everything is not about comparing these with those as some of us live our lives as absolutely as we can and are satisfied to do that without comparing themselves to others. we call this the good life and to be able to live the good life free of constant comparisons where it is already determined who will come up short. when i first entered college in the deep south, i know for a fact there were teachers in white schools that had nothing to do with degrees or credentials. it was just white business and no one else's. but, i had to get the degrees and then come back to the black community for sharing. with some cultures, there is the notion that if you keep those that might pose a threat to you in the dark, you won't have to do much yourself to stay ahead. keeping blacks in the dark via slavery, segregation, seperation and satanism has resulted in a general knowledge that any race, not just the white race in america can out pace blacks in this country. that is because all they do is pull out the comparison charts and as usual blacks always come up short. if blacks do not treat themselves as absolutes and equals, other races wil not either. why look around for god in someone else? it begins with you, it continues with you and it will end with you.

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.
