Do you eat food? Sometimes even multiple times a day? Are you interested in learning about new and exciting ways to stuff your face? Well, TODAY IS YOUR LUCKY DAY. That's right, cats and kittens: it's time once again for our semi-annual Taste special issue, in which our crack team of gluttons and drunks drops all kinds of knowledge on the East Bay restaurant and bar scene. Behold: John Birdsall on the top ten reasons to eat in Oakland; Anneli Rufus on the real meaning of sustainability; Kibby Kleiman on the high times and assorted adventures engendered by the East Bay's very own munchies delivery service; and your truly on the growing bounty of late-night happy hours in the East Bay. Hope you're hungry.
