Oakland Tribune Outtakes

Notes from Oakland, Berkeley and in between

Girl on girl dodgeball, Hooters and East Oakland

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008 at 9:10 am in Fun Stuff to do in Oakland, Night Owl, Oakland nightlife.

In addition to a score of other shows and diversions I missed, there was a girl-on-girl dodgeball game Saturday (NO boys allowed). BTW, folks, the Web site comment section will be down most of the afternoon into Thursday morning for maintenance. They are supposedly upgrading to a new and improved system. I am switching to a sort of new reporting system, too. That is, I am supposed to be roaming around Oakland blogging, video taping and writing on the fly starting soon. It’s sort of an extension of what I’m already doing (roaming around). I’ll just be more interactive about it. I’ve been thinking I should start riding the bus up and down Oakland, not just downtown and the popular arteries like Rockridge. I love the Fruitvale and International Blvd up in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Just think what else is out there that remains “undiscovered” by this night owl. OH, one last thing, I was saddened to discover that Hooters’ mascot is an owl. There I was driving by Hooters’ Hotel (!) in Las Vegas when I saw it, larger than life: The Hooters’ owl. Then I find out yesterday that attendees of the weird Bohemian Grove gathering worship an owl. Yuck.
