signs: Egbert Souse's
Neither sign for Egbert Sousé's at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and MacArthur is that great, but they're definitely distinctive. The bar is named for the W. C. Fields character in a movie called The Bank Dick. But that's probably the least interesting part of the Oakland Wiki entry for Egbert Sousé's. Apparently the bar has attracted more than its share of trouble, or at least more than the neighbors would like.
Speaking of the Oakland Wiki, we've won an award! The Oakland Heritage Alliance gives out its Partners in Preservation Awards each year, and the Oakland Wiki won in the education category. But there's always more to add to the wiki, about Oakland's past, present and future. You can edit it, too!
