So I dunno if any of you guys watch “Sons of Anarchy.”

When I was much younger I used to do work at a body shop way out near the East Bay Dragons’ clubhouse.  I know everyone claims that SAMCRO is based on the Mongols, but if you ever saw these guys roll you would swear that SOA was a (very flattering and accurate) white TV version of this club.

True outlaws in the best way possible.

I miss walking along Lake Merritt.

Lake Merritt Waterfront Road to Close (aug. 8th)

Lake Merritt Waterfront Road to Close (aug. 8th)

ah! so this is what they’re doing! (I’ve passed by and noticed all the construction work, but didn’t know exactly what this project is.)

A new waterfront park with “a waterfront bridge and path for cyclists and pedestrians”!! :DDDD

Oakland is overhauling 12th Street to improve waterfront access for pedestrians and cyclists as part of a long-running project that’s also designed to enhance Lake Merritt’s water quality.

Demolition Project Should Reduce Odor from Lake Merritt, 14.06.11.

and Lake Merritt is actually not a lake—it’s a lagoon! didn’t know that.

Glad that Oakland is working on this project! getting stuff done!
and a complete cycle track around the lake! and new bridge that should make it bike-accessible, too, to the east side. So my mom (and other [recreational] cyclists) doesn’t have to do what she’s currently doing: bike to a point along the lake where the bike lanes end, and then turn around. sadface. But yeah, when this project is completed: :DDDD


This is right by Laney College; viewable from the Lakeside/Oak freeway exit north into Oakland.

it was a day swimming at the lake and drinking sangria with K, and then dinner with my lady at Lake Chalet complete with good wine and a warm Bourbon Furnace cocktail and then an authentic Venetian Gondola ride, complete with singing Italian, around Lake Merritt. WIN. Best anniversary ever.

See? There used to be a streetcar line on Grand.

It would be the B line on the Key System.
