A driver crashed into the Howden Market grocery and staple store in Uptown Oakland in July, had his front door smashed and destroyed loads of goods. According to owner Kanitha Matoury, “the damage is significant and we don’t know exactly how long repairs will take,” so the company has launched a GoFundMe to cover repairs and keep it afloat until it can be fully reopened. The goal of the fundraiser is $ 35,000; At the time of publication, it generated just over $ 5,000.
The local burger and shakes chain Gott’s Roadside has a new offer for the vegetarian set. The spot just launched meatless “chicken” nuggets, which are a textured soy, wheat flour, and sunflower and soybean oil concoction made by the Bay Area-based company Impossible with fake meat. The set of eight nuggets is served with a side of french fries and a selection of homemade dips (ranch, BBQ sauce, and honey mustard) and costs $ 12.99. It is available at all of God’s locations, including now at Walnut Creek (1275 S. Main St.).
