According to KTVU, Beast Mode is taking over beloved Emeryville soul food restaurant, Scend’s, once the restaurant’s owner Cassie Nickelson retires next month. The kitchen doles out crispy fried catfish, fresh oysters and prawns as easily as it does red beans and rice and fried chicken. The 80-year-old Nickelson told KTVU that about two decades ago, she was running a catering business out of her apartment in Oakland. The liquor license for the restaurant has yet to change hands, so for now, Lynch is not yet an official owner.

Lynch’s choice to reportedly take the place over once Nickelson steps down just highlights the superstar’s commitment to investing in the East Bay, specifically Oakland, because remember, as he said in Twitter post addressing his decision to come out of retirement for the Raiders: “I’m really from Oakland doe like really really really from from Oakland...”

You could write thousands of words about how Star magazine both reflects and contributes to the inexorable decline of civilization, but I will skip all that in the hope of being a savvier mediaconsumer than my dad, who once expressed indignation on finding "Boogie Nights" "a rather lewd movie" (Mom: "We thought it was about disco dancing"). Celebrity mags are what they are -- trash -- andif you don't like it, you're free to go read Tolstoy or Rick Warren, or maybe just take a nap.
