Eats: Coming Soon in Old Oakland - District
Despite the questionable Levende East (last time I walked by it looked open) close date, District is taking over. Wine bar + Cocktails. Sounds like a good fit.

Eats: Local Cafe is Open (Piedmont Ave)
As reported a few weeks ago, it looks like it’s official, Local Cafe is open. Dinner is slated to start next month. I am sad there are no espresso drinks.
