Shrimp Boy's Horse Ride; Souley Vegan Is Historic

INNER RICHMOND—In case you were wondering if convicted gangster Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, who's currently caught up in the Leland Yee scandal, is a badass: here he is riding a child-sized horse at Toy Boat Dessert Cafe in the Richmond. Immediately to his right, there's a sign depicting an adult man riding the horse in the exact same manner, with the warning "Don't Be This Guy." But Shrimp Boy doesn't care about your rules.

DOWNTOWN OAKLAND—Fun fact: the little one-story building that houses Souley Vegan is Oakland's oldest, and may be one of the oldest buildings in the Bay Area. It dates to 1857, while the term "vegan" wasn't even coined until 1944. [Chron]
