OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — In-N-Out Burger says it will close its first location in its 75-year history due to a wave of car break-ins, property damage, theft and robberies affecting customers and employees alike at its only restaurant in Oakland, California.

The fast-food burger joint in a busy corridor near Oakland International Airport will close on March 24 because even though the company has taken “repeated steps to create safer conditions our Customers and Associates are regularly victimized,” Denny Warnick, In-N-Out’s chief operating officer, said in a statement Wednesday.

“We feel the frequency and severity of the crimes being encountered by our customers and associates leave us no alternative,” Warnick said.

Oakland has seen a spike in property crime and robberies throughout the city located across the bay from San Francisco, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

This is local to me, I live in the east bay.

Oakland folks have especially been feeling the crunch lately as tech companies pull back on the spending & are doing mass layoffs.

Obviously I don't want people to be breaking into cars but as people get desperate and the large income disparity exists here it's not surprising to see an increase in petty thefts. If you know of the All Gas No Breaks / Channel 5 News youtuber he did a pretty good local coverage on the topic actually. Interviewed a "bipper", as they're called.

Admittedly, I worked for a pretty large tech company myself & was part of the layoff waves too last year. Still lookin' for work, still hopeful!

We do not have In and Out burgers in Houston. We might have a couple I am not sure but I never go to them if they are here. They are definitely not a big thing in Texas.

Oh for sure, Texas is all about Whataburger! I did an installation job at the Houston airport years ago and had it then, it was good!

I don't think we have any Texan restaurants in Massachusetts. I never eaten Whataburger before.

Whataburger is a southern thing. They are big in Texas and a couple of other states but they are definitely not a national chain. They have the best burgers though!

    As for Github, I often frequent there, boasting about my genetic algorithm for tools-assisted speedrunning and such. I'm also pretty active on Discord, with my tag @asperatology.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, the whole earthquake + air pollution combo made me completely forget about bringing updates. I'll be sure to keep on top of things after all things are less requiring my attentions.

    Glad to hear you're okay! I only knew about your Github cuz I tried to follow some of you when I was learning how to program, but didn't understand any of it so kind of quit paying attention to what anyone does on it

  • Varine Varine:
    Broke the nozzle on my 3d printer and I don't have another heater block. So... I guess I'm fucked on that this weekend
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that sucks i bet they are expensive
  • Varine Varine:
    Not really
  • Varine Varine:
    The entire hot end is like 20 dollars, I just can't get anymore until next week
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
