It's hard to imagine Berkeley's Caffe Mediteraneum—frequented by Beat legends Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac and featured in the classic '60s film The Graduate—as anything other than the local watering hole and hub of activism that it's been for the last 50 years. However, the legendary cafe just announced that it's for sale.
If you know what's good for you then you arrived to work a little sweater than usual this morning after pedaling yourself to the office on your tried but true bicycle. Now it's time for your reward!
Today it's supposed to reach a high of 75 degrees in Oakland; so, no one would blame you if you went for a very long walk, or even called in "sick" tomorrow. We have to milk these glorious days for everything they’re worth (before the spring gloom sets in); so, grab a bottle of wine, a baguette, some cheese, and a blanket and stake out your own little slice of heaven at one of these picnic-perfect Oakland parks.
Now that the weather has taken a turn for the worse, you’ll be in need of indoor adventures. So, pick one (or two, or three) of these East Bay staples and enjoy a brew and some bar bites inside with friends.
Got a Saturday to kill? Spend it exploring one of Berkeley's most charming streets.
