KGO’s Laura Anthony covers one of her favorite restaurants in Oakland.
‘I am still here’: Oakland restaurant owner explains how he survived a rough 2020. Through a shelter-in-place order, lockdown and stay-at-home order, Shakewell in Oakland has struggled to stay open. The restaurant has switched from fine dining, to takeout, to outdoor dining, and back to takeout again through the pandemic in California.
Shakewell is also one of my favorite restaurants, and the food and the bar drinks there are among Oakland’s best. Here’s my video from five years ago:
And this one from six years ago:
As a note, there are scores of Oakland Restaurants, many Downtown, that have not done as well, of those who are open, are black and and don’t get what media coverage there is and turn to social media. Chef Smelly on 2430 Broadway is one of those places.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
