Small is simple, small is green. This is the motto behing Oakland's upcoming new residential community named Atomic City. The idea is that less is more in terms of living space, and can result in a much smaller carbon footprint as well. These micro-homes range in size from 833 SF for a 2BD/1BA for the Neutron residence, to 1,264 SF for the largest 1BD+/1BA Manhattan model. Even more intriguing is the fact that these are net-zero homes. If you are not familiar with the term, then here is a quick refresher: A net zero energy building is a building with "zero net energy consumption, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy

Summer vacation for your school-aged kids is almost here! Both you and your kids must be looking forward to it, so I hope that you have an exciting and safe summer.

Opened as the brainchild of Bay Area chef Daniel Patterson (award winning chef owner of Plum, next door and Haven in Jack London Square) and Los Angeles chef Roy Choi, the goal was to “change the way people think about fast food.”  By providing both a healthy and affordable place to eat and work within diverse neighborhoods that need it the most, “Locol is a bridge…how we come together and look at each other and say, ‘Hey, we’re not so different’?” 


It certainly is different from any other restaurant I’ve been to.  The décor is street art chic, with
