Tuesday: Parking, National Night Out and Kuwa opens

The news of the day is that the city is throwing parkers a bone by allowing us to use the “pay and display” receipts across town. So if you pay at a meter on College Ave., for example, you can use it downtown as long as there is still time on the receipt. Previously, the (widespread) practice was illegal and treated the same as feeding the meter. I’m on deadline for a story about other parking issues for tomorrow’s paper so I’ll talk about other issues as well as that one.
Secondly, the restaurant/lounge Kuwa on Clay at 10th Street is making its debut today. The cabaret license allows it to open until 11 p.m. I’ll see you all there but since I work days Mondays-Wednesdays now I won’t be at the National Night Out. Another reporter will be covering that. Speaking of which, the Old Oakland N.O.O. block party has moved to Jefferson Square Park, between Sixth and Seventh streets/Jefferson and MLK.  Meanwhile, there are two parties in Dogtown. One is in Union Square Plaza led by City Slickers Farms (anyone hear the radio spot about the farm last week?) and the other at 32nd and Peralta.
