This sounded promising until I remembered Oakland's high unemploment rate, our poor performing schools, out of control crime, and mismanaged city hall. I'm going to take the time instead to reflect on these issues in lieu of enjoying $8 happy hour beers and Michelin rated restaurants

We have a reservation at Wood Tavern this Sat (with out of town guests also). We find it consistently very good although very meat centric. We actually find Bellanico on Park Blvd to have better food when their food service is "on". We've had some spotty meals too. We attribute it to dining there when the B team is cooking.

We had a meal last Friday at the Ramen Shop, a new place with positive buzz on College Ave (the old Tachibana sushi location). I guess it is what you would call "upscale casual" which means $20-25 a person by the time you get out the door. Good, but pricey.
