Brutus, a men's lifestyle magazine in Japan, just published a best of California businesses issue that features one of my favorite Oakland businesses: Issues, the mucho magazine and cool literary/musical what-have-you shop. Also featured are a slew of other Oakland and Bay Area goodies like the Pop Up General Store, crazy-famous-already-but-so-totally-worth-the-hype Bakesale Betty, and Bicycle Coffee.
I love Issues because they are incredible champions for Oakland business, and such nice folks t'boot. I am so pleased they are getting this kind of publicity. Read their blog post about it here.
