Jodie's in Albany needs local support
One of my favorite local spots, Jodie's Restaurant in Albany, is looking for community support to either remodel or move altogether. It's really an institution and I'm hopeful they'll find a way to stay in business. The food is great and the atmosphere is incredibly unique and special.
I wrote a story about it today:
They can no longer sell their famous fried chicken but there is SO MUCH MORE to enjoy on the menu. The burger is great and their version of eggs Benedict is fantastic. As noted in earlier threads -- the hash browns are also standouts, as are the grits. If you haven't been there, I highly recommend a visit.

More information: According to a source, Mr C is a member of the Eagles Hall in El Cerrito and put on dances there from time to time. Mr C also apparently owns the beauty salon in that building and may own the whole building. Finally, the source says Mr C makes awesome fried chicken.
