Ok, that is it. I’ve had enough of this economic crisis crapola. Enough is enough! I just got word that the Parkway in Oakland will be signing off on Sunday. I can’t believe this. THE PARKWAY, closing? First Scharffenberger, then Elephant Pharmacy, and now The Parkway? Another beloved East Bay iconic gem, gone.
I’ve seen 49er-Raider games there. I’ve seen Rocky Horror there. I went to the baby brigade there. I watched the Oscars there! It is a shame, really.
The good news is that The Cerrito, the Parkway’s sister, will remain open. Baby Brigade, Oscar viewings, and pizza and beer will still go on, just in El Cerrito.
