Mehserle Trial Causes Oakland Riots – Tonight’s Event Cancelled

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Hi All,

Thanks to Kathy Babcock who works in downtown Oakland and called to provide breaking news and excellent advice; “I HIGHLY recommend you stay out of Oakland due to the Judges recent ruling on the Mehserle trial”.  

She also said the streets are dangerous and many of the buildings have closed and sent their staff home for the day.

Due to the location of The Ellington, and that the ongoing riots are only blocks away from the building, we’ve rescheduled tonight’s event – date TBD. (more…)

Take a break from your same old routine, and join me Wednesday night in downtown Jack London Square for a glass of champagne (or two) and some wonderful appetizers!

Last year I hit pay dirt.  I found $5,200.00 and was ecstatic.  In 2004, I found a check for $9000!  I checked today, and found $937.00, a refund that was apparently sent by Hewlett-Packard, but I never received it.
