Rain or shine, it makes for a wonderful morning/afternoon event.
Meet new people with the same interests and you exchange restaurant pros and cons. Hidden food treasures all within 3-4 blocks!

This was definitely worth the time! Eve was a great guide and took us to places in Berkeley that I would not have known about otherwise. An afternoon well spent with the right balance of types of places and information from local businesses.

We have spread the word. Excellent guide and the shops/restaurants visited were so pleasing to our palates. We plan on doing another walk.

Great overview of the businesses and their mission. I live in Berkeley and still found it very interesting. I took five friends and they enjoyed it a lot.
