National Night Out is Tonight

National Night Out is Tonight, Tuesday, August 6th

There are multiple National Night Out events planned in Emeryville tonight. Three events are planned by local home owners' associations at Oak Walk, Watergate, and Bridgewater. Two additional events are open to all Emeryville residents. One is at the Park Avenue Plaza, as previously mentioned on the Tattler and runs from 5:30 until 8:00 p.m. Additionally, there will be a public event at Doyle-Hollis Park from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Details below:
Note to readers:
The Emeryville Tattler does not condone the placement of the Target logo on the notice above.  The City of Emeryville has chosen to associate itself with Target for purposes of this National Night Out.  By placing the logo on official City documents such as this, the City gives to Target Corporation a positive civic association and it's beneficial to the company from a PR perspective.  Since Target has shown itself to be highly anti-gay in recent years in words and deeds, we think it's not well advised for the City to do this.  The Tattler does not think Target should be rewarded like this for the past anti-gay work it has done.


  1. Notice to readers-
    An anonymous commenter posted some ideas in opposition of National Night Out earlier today. Strangely, the blog software is not permitting me to post it. To the commenter, please try again. I'm sorry this has happened.

    1. Notice: Technical problem resolved. The comment was, perhaps inadvertently, posted to the Tattler's prior post about National Night Out. Here is the anonymous comment:

      "Some of us who live in Emeryville think the answer to Zimmerman isn't MORE vigilante actions.

      I may come and talk to folks about my opposition to National Night Out.

      On August 6, 2013 we’re inviting communities to gather for the Night Out for Safety, Democracy, and Human Rights. Night Out for Safety Democracy and Human Rights will ask residents to rise up and voice their ideas and opinions on public safety. This action will coincide with the National Night Out sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, an event designed to “raise crime awareness.” While typically at official National Night Out events, community members are lectured on crime and drug prevention, the National Night Out for Safety, Democracy and Human Rights will include immigration, criminal justice, and civil liberty issues in an open discussion about what it truly means to create safe communities. - See more at: "
