The food. Oakland has the fastest growing foodie spot. The food places are usually next to a local lounge where you can pop in and have a few good drinks with local music.

Old Oakland has been that hot spot plus its a few blocks from 12th street bart station. If you go up more - You're in Uptown Oakland - very close to another Bart Station. Another great food and lounge area. I can go on...

I usually tweet about these type of places in Oakland - @mrbardales . Also, I am from San Francisco and now live in Oakland. Its not what they think!

Thank you, for your question, Irena:

In Evergreen, the rent for a 3,000 square foot house is in the range of $3,500 to $4,500 per month, unfurnished, depending on the schools, age and condition of the house and the location in the Evergreen Area.

The current rental market is very competitive. There are very few rental homes of that size available and there is a large number of people who want them.

Whether you can change the color of the walls will depend on the landlord. Some will permit that, some will not.

For more information, you may call me at my cell phone: (408)509-6218

Thank you,

It really depends on they're looking for, I imagine. Bloom's is a nice neighborhood spot on 18th Street and then you've got The Connecticut Yankee a little further down the hill.

Bottom of the Hill and Thee Parkside also offer a great mix of live music as well.

So many....
If you want vegetarian I recommend The Vegetarian House on East Santa Clara. Very Casual but you get organic all vegan.
For Fish, give the Fish Market a Try. They have a few chains outside of the area and I recommend their Oyster Bar.
In Campbell Hawgs for Fish as well.
Tomato Thyme in Willow Glen on Hamilton.
Pho Wagon on Meridian.
Many on Santana Row, the Yardhouse, Pizza Antica
Willow Glen or Los Gatos Opa for Greek Food

That should get you going.

Lisa Fuller answered:
Hi, the question really will come down to the numbers. In San Francisco, we have rent control, so if a building is occupied by tenants who have been there for 20 years, there may not be much return on investment. Of course, the rent rolls will have direct impact on the value of the building. An ugly building in a mediocre area with high rents could conceivably have more value than a beautiful building in a better neighborhood with low rents.

I could write ten paragraphs on all of the variables that need to be considered when deciding whether it is really worth it, but the bottom line is that it needs to be decided on a case by case basis.

If the numbers work, income property is a great place to park your money as it is a tangible asset. A lot of wealth is built by people who own income properties.

Hope this helps. If you'd like to discuss further, please feel free to contact me directly.

No! They never were a good investment ...

Maybe look into those that have been foreclosed on ... could find some good deals there ...

Google "timeshare resale"

Good Luck,

Very Interesting question! I don't know the answer off the top of my head but you did spark our curiosity enough to Google it. Wouldn't you know it there is a site dedicated to beer in the city. checkout the link and let us know if it helps answer your question.


Hope this helps,
Stella And Mike

Wow, many to choose from. Yesterday I went to a buffe lunch at new Indian restaurant here in south Temecula. It's Blue Peacock and offers a buffe (8-10 dishes and some deserts too) with all kinds of great exotic food and it comes with the indian style nan bread. They asked if you want it plain or garlic. Great value. It was like $8-9 for a buffe lunch. It's family owned with great service. I will be back. ... more

Eric Michael Abrams - California Real Estate Broker answered:
It depends on what type of night life you're looking for. LA has more of a club scene, but S.F. has more of an underground artistic culture. Though, in reality both have equally active night scenes.

There are plenty of clubs in S.F. and plenty of clubs in LA. They're both culture rich cities.

What are some of the other considerations that you're tossing around?

Let me know, if I can assist. Best,

Hello Michi,

I suggest looking up the yellow pages for SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, in night clubs. You could email them, but if they don't answer, then you might need to make some calls to find out if they are over 18 clubs.
i hope this helps.

Hi Yvonne,

Well it depends on what you want to do? Dancing, food and wine? What age range? There is everything from the Yard House at The River (beer & sports) to Arnold Palmer's in La Quinta.
