Tweet This Subway Restaurant in Downtown Oakland has something I’ve never seen before: bulletproof glass. It’s a relatively new addition, given that I’ve visited the retail restaurant on Broadway near 14th Street before, earlier this year. It’s also a shocking, and impersonal, addition. The sandwich clerk said to me that “nothing’s...

Tweet Joshua Daniels is a name you know if you, for whatever reason, follow the Twitter hashtags #Oakland and #OakMtg. He posts there on what seems to be an every-other-day basis.

I write “experimental” because if the overall strategy didn’t work, I was going to analyze the heck out of it and try it again. But it worked. The band actually made about $500 that night...

Tweet Tioki.com is not a virtual tiki bar. The Linkedin model is an undoutedly successful one, so would be just a matter of time before someone developed a site that has the same intent, but is focused on one industry, like education. That startup company, backed by Mitch Kapor (Lotus fame) and 500 Startups, has been around for about two years and was founded...

Tweet The First Friday Shooting is a horror and a tragedy that Oakland and Oakland Art Murmur must overcome. The video made by this blogger shows the awful scene of a Downtown Oakland empty of life, with police cars and crime tape. That’s not the Oakland we want to have. The only way to not have that happen is to keep Art Murmur and the street festival...

Tweet That has to be the most shocking title you’ve ever seen me post. Come to think of it, it’s shocking even if you’ve read my blog for the first time. Let me get to the second part of it first: the gang-rape mention. I was told this by someone who regularly attends The Alley on 3325 Grand Avenue and it had to do with a woman who frequents...
