Stop #75; West Oakland

Date: August 16, 2008
West Oakland
Pitt Stoppers: Jimmy D., Carol.
Uncle Larry's

Pluses: Getting to meet the owner Raphael "Hoodie" Mitchell who's owned or worked at Larry's for over 60 years. He gave us the history of the area, of the bar, and of his family. We also got to meet his niece Dana who works at the bar and her friend Keith who gave us lots of advice about places to go in the area.

You'll always have a place to park at Larry's.
