Re: “Some Oakland Landlords Are Using a Legal Loophole to Exempt Housing from Rent Control

Our property management company, Mann Edge (they also own Friendly Cab taxi co), tried to pull this shit on our ghetto apartment building last year. They are like a bargain basement version of JDW, it sounds like. This whole building is falling apart in so many ways. Any repairs or renewals have been done in the cheapest and shoddiest manner possible. We went to a free legal tenant workshop for info and they explained this ridiculous loophole to us. They told us that the work done to the apartments would have to be pretty major to allow them to do this. I was very nervous. Thank goodness our slumlords were not prepared to spend any actual money on their attempt to exempt the building. We got another notice saying they had cancelled their exemption request. This place has bed bugs, for crying out loud (not my apartment, thankfully!)

Re: “'I Genuinely Thought I Was Going To Die': Reddit User Describes Terrifying Escape From Oakland Warehouse Fire

Lil' Mike is always the voice of reason. A very smart guy who knows how important it is to be silly, too. I'm gonna repost your thing to FaceBook, Mike.

Re: “Treasure Island Music Fest Announces New Location, Killer Views of Oakland, East Bay Cityscape

Isn't this the last year that it will be on Treasure Island? I thought I heard that somewhere. I'm sure they will continue to have it, as long as it makes money, right? No such thing as a music festival that's a one-time thing. Woodstock doesn't fit today's value$

Re: “In East Oakland, a Popular Banh Mi Shop and Taqueria Closes

That's too bad. We did our laundry at the laundromat next to Saigon Deli Sandwich & Taco Valparaiso just so we could eat there while we washed. They will be missed. Good luck to Tony finding a new space.

Re: “Escape the Music Festival Industrial Complex at this year's Burger Boogaloo

And at around fifty bucks to attend both days of the festival, the Burger Boogaloo is a great bargain too. And it really is a great community event where everybody has fun, no matter who is playing. Seriously.
