Death and Coffee in Oakland

Yesterday evening while Friendatella and I were killing a little time before the movies at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, we were struck by the Day of the Dead Coffee shop which was dead itself with the doors locked. The blue bonneted vision of loveliness a few doors down reminded us of Bryce Digdug who wore a similar bonnet to the Hunky Jesus pageant a few weeks back. (I've been very proud that this video of mine has received many hits after being linked from several right wingnut sites.)

Like many naive San Franciscans, we ventured into this somewhat upscale Oakland neighborhood where there have been several armed robberies at pricey restaurants. The police described the suspects as "teenage boys in hoodies". That really narrows the field, doesn't it?

JT - I think Joy will appreciate this post as she had her own Day of the Dead party last October. However, there is something unappatizing about a day of the dead hot dog. Is it just me?

Frankly, Gary, I saw nothing that made me want to enter or order at the Day of the Dead Cafe. It was just intriguing in a train wreck sort of way. However, as vegan Joy would likely point out, unless its a meatless alternative, the Day of the Dead hot dog is appropriately named.
