Berkeley has always been a political hotbed for human and civil rights. Whether you are talking about the Black Panthers or People Park, riots or peaceful protests, you will hear the city of Berkeley?s pop up again and again.

Although much has changed in our country over the last 4 decades, this college town, located up in the hills north of Oakland, still holds onto the past in a way very few cities can.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:liberal college community
  • Cons:lots of younger street-kids
  • In a nutshell:Time stood still - or at least trying.

    Blondie's vs Fat Slice? I'd give Blondie's a 5 and Fat Slice a 4. But that's on a scale of 1 to 10 : )

    Don't snakes eat birds? Or is it mice they eat? I told you of my FORCED trip to that Vivarium nightmare in Berkeley. I learned a harsh lesson from that: Never pimp-slap a tarantula!
