on November 2, 2009

After a weekend filled with candy, face paint and costumes, are you longing for your Saturday night back? Monday may just seem like a drab, but wake up North Oakland!

Want some news with your coffee?

Seven days and counting: the Bay Bridge being closed has made commuting very difficult for some, BUT CalTrans has announced that they will likely finish repairs today at it will open at 9:00 a.m.

El Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, a Latino holiday is being celebrated today. It is a day for people to pray and remember those who have died. The celebration, which can include building altars or cooking favorite foods, ends tomorrow.

Interesting news: The “Michael Jackson: This is It” movie made $101 million worldwide in its first five days. The film, which shows rehearsal performances from what was suppose to be his last time on stage, was to only run for two weeks, but because of the popularity will be extended. I saw it yesterday. Definitely worth the $8.25.
