Rolling Out the Welcome Mat in Oakland for Whitey

Spent some time in Oakland, California the other day.

Forbes magazine has declared the Uptown section of downtown Oakland "America's 9th Best Hipster Neighborhood."

Here's how Forbes describes the area:
Gritty up-and-comer Uptown made this list thanks to its fast-paced growth. New restaurants, bars and coffee shops have been opening weekly, and arguably the some of the best farmers markets in the country take place here. The district was deemed the city's entertainment center in the early 2000s and since then art galleries, an improv theater, and several medical marijuana clubs have sprung up to cater to the growing community.
Here's the welcome mat that I spotted locals, with chalk in hand, putting out for the new crowd.
