Zut! in Berkeley has a great bar where Berkeley locals like to gather. The menu is seasonal - there is always a fresh vegetable, like these fava beans - that are available tempura style. They have great pizzas, local wines and a dessert menu that...

200 Centennial Dr, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA
Two of us had paid about $50 to get into the Botanical Garden at Berkeley, and we’d previously shelled out about the same for admission to the DeYoung Museum and maybe half that for the Asian Art Museum. These are all magnificent attractions, well...

The best parking spots on campus are given to NLs. Netherlanders? A sight for Northern Lights? National League baseball players? Nope, Nobel Laureates. Typical for a school well represented in the periodic table of the elements with Berkelium,...
