Save The Oasis

Save The Oasis.

I grew up in Palo Alto. My parents met at Dutch Goose, another local
institution. I grew up at The Oasis. I also live in North Fair Oaks (my
address says Menlo Park), and I put good money into the businesses in
downtown and elsewhere.

It's sad that big money is coming in and taking over, uglyifying (sp?) El
Camino. There's an entire lot sitting empty, that used to be a car
dealership, no? The one between The Lab and the Big 5 lot? Why not tear
that down? It's a complete eyesore.

Point is, I am all for development, but historical institutions like The
Oasis have a right to stay where they are, bringing in business to the area
and such, and not be subject to insane rent raising to kick them out.

Remember Palo Alto Bowl? Remember Su Hong's? Both were other institutions
that many, many local people grew up with, that are sadly gone from El

Please help fight this. It would be a sad day in the world to lose The
