Re: “Tri-Tip & Turkey Tails at World Champion Smokehouse

The best sauce in Oakland (E&J second best)... reminiscent of Flint's. The meat is nothing spectacular... good but not spectacular... but I drive from Richmond and buy a container from a dollar store just to buy a pint of sauce to accompany (on the side) my own smoked BBQ.

Re: “Can a New Oakland A's Ballpark Help Fight Gentrification?

So can i bring my vertical smoker and sell BBQ plates on the ramp too on the under? How long would I last? Either enforce the law or not. I'm not mad at those trying to make a buck. They're playing the game within what has been allowed. That's hustle. BUT it is NOT safe on the ramp to impede the flow( musicians, (mostly) counterfeit apparel and knock off electronics (Disclaimer: BOTH of which I've bought from- I'm guilty too)- LET alone unregulated rigged-up carts with propane tanks on a crowded ramp. We're not even talking about any safety permits or anything. We seem to wink-wink and turn our head- particularly with the hot dog vendors as they are mainly"immigrants trying to make a buck so leave them alone". Again ask, so can I sell BBQ plates on the ramp also? I promise it's hella good. BUT we all know the answer to that...

Re: “When Police Take Kids' Bikes

I left this out... but I agree with R.B. here... for the first offense.

"...As for safety and traffic laws, R.B. advocates for assigning kids training hours, community service, and bike safety courses, rather than having police take the bikes they've often worked so hard to earn or build."

Re: “When Police Take Kids' Bikes

This is a whiny, excuse making sorry story - even for the Eastbay Express. This story ran Friday on KPIX WITH commentary from a Lt. from SLPD. I was once not too long ago a kid who rode my BMXs with the other neighborhood kids all over east Oakland. On the weekend, we rode to the main library, got $.39 cent tacos from the Taco Bell on 14th and Jackson, ate lunch at Peralta park or on the grass in front of the court house, then we'd ride over and ride the elevator to the top of the AlCo Parking garage and ride down the roller-coaster like turns of the garage until a sheriff's deputy made us leave- I agree rightfully so now as an adult- although it would have been nice to close it off to cars and let kids have for a while on Saturday- with supervision. We'd then ride over to the Oakland Museum and clown around the koi ponds and what not till it was time to head on back to 11th Ave. and Foothill. We did NOT however ride in packs of hundreds blocking traffic, doing stunts in front of traffic and daring cars to hit us. If helmets had been the law, we would have probably (PROBABLY) worn them. Last weekend at Hegenberger and E.14, a pack of riders weaved in and out traffic against the light, on the wrong side of traffic, doing wheelies and such. All it would have taken was ONE not very attentive driver to start their turn and kill one of these kids. I'm all for kids riding their bikes and enjoying the Eastbay sun. There is however a responsibility with that privilege. Make your scraper bike, put beat on it. Ride in packs with ya potnas. You have to however, follow at least some of the rules- if not only for their OWN safety. This article seems to want to absolve these kids of ANY responsibility. From the video I saw, having one's bike confiscated should be the least of their worries. You're lucky your scraper bike didn't get pummeled by some fool in a scraper CAR on E 1-Four. Do San Leandreans want to keep those so-called "ruffians" out of their burg? Of course. Let's not pretend that's not the under-current. But if you ride legit, they can't do anything but follow you border to border

Re: “Where There's Smoke, There's Toxic Fire

While local news coverage was sparse for a while due to the State of the Union, local news DID cover it. Alternate channels (Channel 36 cable 6 KTVU, Channel 44 KPIX) did continue local news coverage, including that of the fire. The Contra Costa Warning system ( and @CoCoCWS) sent out updates via the website, Twitter and text via Nixle ( public safety notification service)... AND there was a robust ongoing discussion on the Nextdoor platform. I encourage you to sign up for any or all of these services to be apprised of incidents in Richmond. No the sirens did not go off- but I DID feel as though I was being kept apprised over in the Marina Bay (while at work) and Coronado (when I got home) neighborhoods.

Re: “What Ever Happened to the Rotary Nature Center?

I'm glad this didn't become a hit piece on Ms. Benavidez. She always seemed to be REALLY passionate about the Center and the Lake in general but seemingly ended up over her head.
