Good vacation rental where I can roast a pig outside?

Maybe add Bolinas into the search...can I come?

I'll bring the beer.

Wonderful --- a Hunan restaurant in Millbrae

A current story in the news about Wonderful.


Best Sandwich in Berkeley?

Sadly the "butchers" and sandwich makers at Star Meats on Claremont Ave. on the Oakland,Berkeley border vary greatly...from OK to the worst slacker losers you have ever had the misfortune to deal with in the entire EastBay.

Don't misinterpret this towards the workers at Star Grocery.
They are always nice,helpful and a pleasure to do business with.
They are a separate entity from Star Meats.

I will never again do any business with Star Meats...ever!

Is tipping now a insult to waitpeople w/new living wage pay hike?

Have you ever tried giving a tip in Australia?

You could end up with a "bloody black eye and your Yank shrimp on the barbie"

Is tipping now a insult to waitpeople w/new living wage pay hike?

Now that waitpeople wages are no longer artificially low...

What now makes wait-people so special over all the other hard working people that are also taxed?

Is tipping now a insult to waitpeople w/new living wage pay hike?

I know in many countries if you try to tip for service... its frowned upon and a insult to the waiters and waitresses.

Is that the new paradigm in the new restaurants and cities adopting the new living wage laws?

Rotten City Pizza in Emeryville?

No need to tip anymore...isn't socialism grand?

Had a great time at Vientian (Vientiane) Cafe [Oakland]

I eat at Vientian often.

Chicken or shrimp Green curry is outstanding!
Pork Ribs are great and a super value.
Sausage appetizer is a must.

Rice ball salad is a little better at Vientian...
But I like the salad greens used for wraps better at Champa Gardens.

Champa Gardens has good cheap Lao beer too.

Both are great!

Best Croissant in SF/Bay Area?

A perfect example:Della Fattoria's

If I was told that it was in Petaluma, I would think that's nice,but not of any interest to me.

And searching for its location on google would have wasted 30 seconds of my most valuable life.

Why bother posting anything?... since there is Google!

Best Croissant in SF/Bay Area?

Why do people mention names of places...and not where they are located?

Best place to buy coffee beans on the Peninsula

"Roasted in Wales?"

Where did I say that or what are you referencing?

New "Jules thin crust Pizza" next to Zachary's in Oakland...WTF?

Toots4120 "Hella" gets it!

Best place to buy coffee beans on the Peninsula

I Have tried them all.

First Wave,2nd Wave,3rd Wave...bla bla bla.

This place is the tastiest,freshest and cheapest.


Sign up today & get 15% Off your first coffee order + free shipping on orders over $35

No,I don't work for them or even get a discount for sign ups.

Just spreading the word.

I think buying anywhere else is a waste of money and time.

Let me know what you think?


They are in a suburb of Sacramento so Bay Area buyers get their orders in 2-3 days.

Sources for not-your-average picnic food in the East Bay?

Yep,Koreana Plaza may be the ticket!

They have lots of togo items.

Cam Huong does large party orders in advance.
They can be kinda gourmet/exotic if you choose the right dishes.

Or order up a bunch of assorted Bahn mi sandwiches.

702 International Blvd
Oakland, CA
(510) 444-2500

Then head up to Market Hall on College Ave to fill out the basket.

Each place has its own parking which is pretty easy even on weekends.

For in the park or backyard these would be great choices...in my opinion!

Although great sausages and high end hamburgers with great acme or semifreedi rolls and extra ordinary hamburger meat,condiments and salads(nothing bought at Safeway) with all the trimmings is always a hit too.

Moving to the Bay Area!

MacArthur BART is no picnic day or night.

But you will probably see no panhandlers and step in no human feces on your visit.

Moving to the Bay Area!

Robert you must not ride Bart much...if you think...
"MacArthur BART is probably the most unpleasant in the whole system."


Sadly most of Bart has become a poorly ran, dirty, expensive,crime ridden sewer.

Moving to the Bay Area!

Oakland rents are second fastest-rising in the U.S.


Moving to the Bay Area!

North Berkeley is nice but a little difficult to get in and out of everyday.

It would get old fast if your commuting to downtown Oakland.

35 minutes vs 10-15 minutes if your in Oakland.

Nothing but Forgettable Fancy Tasting Menus at Bay Area French Influenced High End Restaurants - RANT

Try Michel's Bistro on Grand Avenue in Oakland.

Why are they standing in line ?

Civil Bear are you a A & G listener?

They play that audio clip a lot!

Why are they standing in line ?

As I stood in line at Wimbledon a few years back I heard a British fellow proclaim "Some people just love to queue and the British love it the most"


Snake River Farms American Kobe corned beef @ Costco

Has anyone tried it?

Would love to know how it tasted?

Berkeley Grocery Outlet to close.

Bummer...I hate CVS

Wish Longs did not sell out to them.
