Good beer and wine (didn't try the wine). Didn't try the food, but I think it's all vegetarian.

The weather was cool.. I wore jeans, a cute sweater and slip-on shoes. Funky outfits encouraged. It's Berkeley, people!.

Ample street parking in nearby neighborhood. Watch out for the double crosswalks and poorly lit intersections so you don't wipe out some unsuspecting pedestrian crossing the street! Allow 10 minutes to find a spot, park and walk to the venue. Address signage on the building is poor and difficult to see at night.
