About as Berkeley as You Can Get: Food of the Americas Day!

Posted By on Thu, Oct 13, 2011 at 12:00 PM

What: Foods of the Americas Day

Where: Berkeley Botanical Gardens

When: Sun., October 16, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cost: Free with garden admission

The rundown: The weather's supposed to be bright and beautiful on Sunday, so why not head to Berkeley where it's even brighter and more beautiful, and bask in the glory of the botanical gardens? WHY NOT? While you're at it, you can tour the garden's harvest of colorful food crops that originated in the Americas. Always Be Learning! At 2 p.m., there will be a native foods tasting and an opportunity to do some kind of craft. I am guessing it'll involve basket weaving or dreamcatcher making, or something equally... Berkeley.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
