The weather was It is irrelevant. Dress for the occasion not for a weather. Respect the high art and the place bringing this art to you.. I wore I recommend dressing like civilized people do. The weather? What difference does it make? I think we have enough clothes for any weather. Just respect the people around you, respect the art....
We thought the Damascas restaurant with delicious fresh choices on the plaza ( La Cochina) across from the Zellerbach was a real find. Hardworking owners with very tasty dressings. We will definitely go again.
You can eat before the show in the theatre's cafe. Good food & convenient. Opens 1.5 hour before show. Tip: Call ahead to reserve your cafe seats.
For a tasty and healthy meal, make sure to grab a bite at The Butcher's Son just below the UC Berkeley campus. Quite tasty and you won't leave hungry!
Parking is difficult - take Uber/Lyft and enjoy the show more.
if you do drive from any where in the bay area, allow twice as much time as you think you'll need due to traffic and the amount of time it takes to find parking. Just go hours earlier and walk around, have a leisurely dinner and some coffee ;)
The weather was Cold. I wore Silk shirt and slacks and felt overdressed..
You can take an elevator to the balcony level, but it may be as many as 10 rows up. Not hard but not ADA either.
For parking you are competing with athletics, for example a lot dedicated to water polo attendees. Go over to Channing for the garage.
The weather was sunny. I wore t-shirt and jeans.
Unsure of the current parking lot situation, I parked up on Oxford St near Hearst and walked over.
Lots of places nearby to eat. Given it is all near UC Berkley the food it's inexpensive and plentiful. Try Gordos for great deal on Mexican food
I grabbed a chili at soup plantation, just ate a few bites then heated it up for dinner later. Yummy.
The weather was warm, but it gets cool later when the show ends. I wore I wore a sleeveless dress with toe in sandals. I took a light sweater for later.
Street parking was available about 6 blocks down on Durant and Telegraph.
The weather was windy.. I wore Jeans with a blouse and a scarf and jacket. I also wore comfortable shoes..
