Tuesday, Feb. 9 – Free Grand Slams!
on February 9, 2010
Happy Tuesday, North Oakland!
Let’s get down to what’s really important–free food. Denny’s is serving up a free Grand Slam Breakfast today from 6 am-2 pm. Only hitch is that Denny’s sole Oakland location is out near the airport. For North Oaklanders, it might be worth the jaunt out to Emeryville. (To determine if it’s worth it at all, check out SFoodie’s foolproof opportunity cost formula).
In more serious news, a San Leandro man was convicted of attempted murder of an Oakland motorcycle cop, in a shooting incident nearly three years ago.
In case you missed it, KCBS In-Depth interviewed OPD Chief Anthony Batts on Sunday. Check out the interview, titled “Fighting Crime in Oakland,” here.
For you sports fans: The Raiders have a new defensive backs coach. The Warriors lost last night to the Dallas Mavericks 127-117, with top player Monta Ellis leaving the game in the 4th with a sprained left knee.
