What are they DOING on Park Blvd?
For the past 6 months (at least), the stretch of Park Blvd between Leimert Ave and Mountain Blvd has had some kind of construction going on, with the road reduced to one lane each way.
What are they doing, and why is it taking so long? I can't find any information about it online (I put "Oakland California Park Blvd sidewalk repair 2011" into Google, but didn't find anything useful).
Anyone have information, or a suggestion on where I might find some info? This stretch of road is on my daily commute route and I'd like to know how long it will be disrupted.

Hotter Than July Bellydance Extravaganza, Saturday July 9th at 1pm, Berkeley, CA
The Hotter than July Bellydance Extravaganza is a celebration of the Girls Raks Bellydance and Body Image Summer Program. The event will be held July 9, 2011 at 1:00pm at the La Peña Cultural Center at 3105 Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley. Now in its second year and led by Raks Africa, Girls Raks is a fun and engaging summer program for girls ages 13-19. The goal of the program is to provide survival tools for girls of all sizes who may struggle with body image and self-esteem issues. The two-week program gives teenage girls an opportunity to have a body-positive experience, free of judgment and competition.
A $10 to $20 donation at the door is suggested. The Extravaganza features Bay Area bellydance treasures Nanna Candelaria, Ahava, Monica Berini, Khalilah, Queenie TT, Asata Iman, Zadiyah, Raks al Khalil, Shabnam’s Ooh La La Dancers, Monica McCartney and a special performance from summer program participants, Girls Raks and event producers, Raks Africa.

Some keys on my laptop keyboard fell off (the keys are lost now but the keyboard still works) so I need to replace the keys/keyboard. The laptop isn't under warranty. I have checked on Yelp and found a few places that could replace my keyboard but I thought I'd ask this community as well. Any suggestions as to where I should take my laptop to? I'm located in Oakland but could go to Berkeley or SF too. Thanks!

I booked a 7 AM flight from Oakland on Saturday. Little did I know, until just now, that the BART doesn't start running until 6 on Saturdays. That is too late... I moved here fairly recently and have no friends, so pestering a friend to take me to the airport before the crack of dawn unfortunately is not an option. What would be the cheapest alternative? I live in Lafayette.
Thanks in advance.
I need a recommendation for a chiropractor that's within walking distance from 12th St BART (and therefore near work).
Thanks in advance!

Why the hell do people think it's a great idea to do road construction and use a jackhammer at 6:30 in the morning. I thought the Recycle people were up early.
Why won't this town let me get some sleep?
Is it just me?

Essex Street Hot Tubs
I have a code to the Essex tubs, but I was wondering if anyone knew how to contact the owner? Nothing major, but I did have some questions. Thanks in advance.

Where to buy an inexpensive field hockey stick in Oakland?
Got any recommendations for used or inexpensive sporting goods suppliers in Oakland who might carry field hockey sticks? (Berkeley or SF — or really, anywhere BARTable — would be okay, too.)
I'm looking for a field hockey stick to use as part of a Halloween costume. Because it's for a costume and I don't actually play field hockey, I'd rather not spend much money on it. The cheapest new ones I've found online seem to start at $30.

Do you know me? Please help!
My husband and I found a buff colored, older female dog wandering in traffic on 14th Ave, right near Highland Park Hospital. She seems shaky on her legs, and possibly somewhat disoriented.
She has thick fur, like a chow, and weighs maybe 85 ish pounds.
She has a rabies tag, and a red fleur de lys tag that might have once had her name on it.
I know this is someone's baby - and they are wondering where she is. Please help if you can.
help me find my home!

story telling open mic TONIGHT
I'm hosting a story telling open mic tonight, 6pm, at the Mosswood Park amphitheater, which is in the southeast corner of the park, approximately at 36th Street and Broadway. There's a parking lot at 36th and Webster if you roll like that. Please bring yourself, your friends, and a story from your life to share. The theme is Transformations or if you prefer, Sexy Transformations, so come tell us your dramatic tattoo removal story, or your harrowing tale of once being a Republican senator only to change your party affiliation to Democrat, or the hilarious story of how you found Jesus and stopped doing meth with long-haul truckers. If you need help coming up with a theme or polishing your story, I'm here to help. We are going to have the one, the only, the luminous Dixie de la Tour, creator of Bawdy Storytelling, in our midst so get there on time because you don't want to miss a word of the action.
Please post on your facepages and your livebooks, tweeter about it, and tell your friends.
And if you really really want to make me happy, you could sign up in advance (there's no time like the present) so I have a few names on my open mic list before we even get started.
