Good vibes apparently, if all goes to one entrepreneur’s plan. A Good Vibes-style store called “Feelmore 510” will open on Telegraph at 17th near Bench & Bar and Somar in the near future.
@VSmoothe asks if this is a good idea, so here are my thoughts on pros and cons. Nothing brilliant here, just pragmatic concerns.
Sex-positive establishment is counter to all the other stuff out there – movies, smutty mags, what-have-you.
Another NEW BUSINESS in Uptown!
Supplements adults’ social/personal needs which aren’t met in the workplace, restaurant, bowling alley, etc. In a fairly positive or at least realistic way. Particularly meets needs of gay patrons who support many existing downtown Oakland nightlife establishments.
Near Oakland School for the Arts (charter middle school) – but who is going to keep kids from learning about sex? In any case kids aren’t allowed into the store unlike, say, DeLauer’s.
Overall, I support this business opening.
I also support the opening of a bowling alley in Jack London Square if anyone is listening.
