Re: “Best Cajun Cuisine (Not for the Timid)

he's gonna turn big crowds away. OB doesn't cook for the money. He's retired and he sends the cafe money to his grandchildren. He doesn't want to work that hard. Good luck. The food is great!

Re: “Best Breakfast Sandwich

Those of us from Jersey call it a Porkroll, Egg , and cheese. And yes it should always come with Ketchup , salt , and pepper. Thank you Scolari's for keeping it real.

Re: “Most Courageous School Official

More like most brazen school official. Displacing elementary school students and families, displacing high school teachers, destabilizing three high school communities in east and west Oakland is hardly courageous. Controversial? Yes. It is as experimental as it is detrimental.

Re: “Best Anarchist Hangout

Dammit east bay express. You think after that huge cover story you did basically blowing up all the DIY venue's that people have worked their asses off from getting shut down you would have learned a lesson. Next time a touring band needs a show, or people need somewhere for a zine workshop, we're taking over your offices.

Re: “Best Grub at a Nightclub

Sure, but I personally LOVED my $14 burger. The bacon jam is amazing. The fries it came with were outstanding. And I think it's originating cow was happily fed on grass and other good things. Glad you found this place; it's one of my new faves!

Re: “Most Regionally Minded Mayor

Lawngun is right and Zelda is dead wrong. Let's face it, UC should be privatized and then they would a taxpayer instead of an enormous tax burden.
But Berkeley without UC would be just another suburb, which might be an improvement if all the 60s garbage was forced to leave town.
Bates, like his dreadful wife, is a statist-collectivist to the core.
Zelda belongs to the Becky O'Malley Far Left Nimby Club of Trust Funders who can afford to shop at Whole Paychecks and no Trader Joes in 'their' city for the hoi polloi, thank you.

Re: “Most Regionally Minded Mayor

Right. Who needs free markets, when we can stifle opportunities for economic development and new jobs with excessive regulation? You go!

Re: “Most Regionally Minded Mayor

What nonsense. If Bates were truly regionally minded, he'd be pushing for Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's second campus to go to Richmond or Alameda, not Berkeley. Thanks to the 2005 deal he secretly negotiated, Berkeley, with its huge budget deficits, is already subsidizing UC's use of City services (fire, police, sewers) to an annual tune of $13 million dollars and hardly needs another huge tax-exempt institution within its borders. It is true, however, that the interests of his own city are rarely at the top of the Berkeley mayor's agenda. Social justice activist? Check out his "Green Pathway" for downtown--basically a greenwashing scam for developers. Or consider his push to dismantle the zoning protections for West Berkeley's 300 or so manufacturers/6-7,000 employees plus the district's thousand artists and artisans--in behalf of Wareham and other grasping real estate speculators. Bates is a self-described "free market kind of guy." That says it all. Zelda Bronstein
