If you missed Oaklandish’s Salsa By the Lake party last weekend never fear – Oakland North was there so you have another opportunity to twirl and whirl with the best of them.  Blog reporter Zennie strutted his stuff at the salsa fest as well.

In more grounded news –  the sturm und drang that is city budget matters churns on, and Oakland North is keeping an eye on what happens.  Check out the Budget Diaries to get the latest on who will face the fiscal guillotine.  On a similar note A Better Oakland wonders if the city budget cuts will create a not so better Oakland.

We certainly hope not, but the prognosis is not good.  Stay tuned for more details.
