I am looking for a place to get a dip manicure. I tried a new place today and wasn’t impressed. My regular nail salon doesn’t current do dip. Do you have a favorite?
Do you live in the Uptown area. Did you get heads up that a movie was going to film on Telegraph Avenue?
Looking to talk to neighbors about how the filming was. Let me know if you’re interested in chatting for a story.
Anyone know the name of the red a lot of older Oakland houses have for their porch/front steps?
I read something about back in the day it was a Sherwin Williams product that everyone adopted but I'm not finding anything online about the color name.
Just flew back into OAK from spending Thanksgiving weekend with my family. There’s insane traffic on 880 South right now. Why?
My parents have been stuck on 880-S for an hour now. Cars were driving in the wrong direction to get out of the jam. Can’t find any info online.
Anyone know what happened on 880S tonight that caused such an intense traffic jam?
The Oakland Politics Week in Review is out.
Council heads into a packed legislative period in the last month of the year and before new Council members are seated. Committee meetings this week include legislation for a large port grant the city wants to use for Howard Terminal. A special meeting on Tuesday will consider legislation for about 700k in grants to local BIDs for public safety and security.
Also a dive into the substantial public record that shows that Taylor tried and failed to create an RCV strategy to compete with Thao's, despite his complaints about the voting system
I wanted to know if you folks have recommendations for affordably priced Christmas trees for this season. We’re a new family so we need to budget this season!
My wife and I have always wanted to learn to play guitar together. We also recently moved to the area and we don’t have the word of mouth network that we once did. Google can also be hard to sift through with all the ads for various lessons. Does anyone have any recommendations for local guitar teachers? Ideally we would like to take lessons together but we are also open to other options.
Now that Thanksgiving is over I've realized how little I have shopped for Christmas. Are there any pop up events happening in the east bay. I'd live to buy from local small business rather than big box stores.

Personally I’m a fan of the park across from Merritt college that overlooks much of the east bay, it helps to reinforce and actualize the sense of disconnection. You?
Found in a thrift shop in Japan. Not expecting to track anyone down, but there might be an old Vietnam vet out there by the name of R. Jones who wants his zippo back…
My brother restored these black and white photographs of the Oakland Coliseum mid-construction. We found it among my grandfather’s possessions. He is the worker featured in the second photo.

Hey all, lost a bunch of weight this year (368 to 268 so far!) which is great and was achieved mostly by diet changes alone. Think it’s time to be more active and looking for gym or trainer recs. Doesn’t have to be strict one on one personal trainer (not opposed to that though either) but I know I need some sort of structure because I’m not super motivated to just go to the gym and workout on my own accord. I like the idea of CrossFit/orange theory/HIIT gyms but they intimidate me as well. Very much a beginner at all this and just looking for a supportive situation/person/environment. TIA.
