SFS is curated by Dyanna Dawson and John Tran. SFS is an acronym for 'street fashion style'. We use it as a practical abbreviation of our blog's official name: SFStyle.
John Tran was born and raised in the Bay Area. He founded SFS in 2008 to utilize his talent and passion for art, fashion, and photography. He has worked with NBC Bay Area and 7x7 Magazine--and also contributed to Soma Magazine. His interests outside SFS include: perusing dusty bookstores, keeping freshwater aquariums, and consuming Indian cuisine. He has gone by the blogger nickname, 'JT Paradox' which also happens to be his eponymous photography blog.

The intention of this blog is for people to post their own food experiences or stories of restaurants, cafes or diners in Alameda, CA. One person could potentially eat at every single food establishment in Alameda since the city is still quite small, but I have not come across that special person just yet.
We are Funk Town Farm, a community garden located in the area known to locals as “funk town” in East Oakland. The garden was started in 2008 behind 219 East 15th Street at 3rd Avenue and two blocks up from Lake Merrit. We are a group of novice and experienced gardeners who want to grow our own produce (and flowers) to use and sell at a sliding scale farm stand on Sunday mornings. We also raise chickens for eggs, as well as involve the community in “sponsoring a chicken” and composting. We want to provide our neighbors with the opportunity to have fresh organic fruit, veggies and eggs no matter what their socioeconomic status may be. Unlike most community gardens we garden together on our lot and share the produce. Each hours work = one basket of produce.
