Snow in Berkeley? Yes, in the Gourmet Ghetto

A rare sight in Berkeley: snow, enjoyed by many children on Sunday in the Gourmet Ghetto. Photo: Colleen Neff

On Sunday, the Andronico’s on Shattuck was transformed into a mini winter wonderland as kids, unaccustomed to seeing the white stuff in their hometown, donned boots and mittens to throw ice balls and build snowmen.

The free “Snow Day” event, which included holiday crafts, hot cider, cookies and a snow queen, was sponsored by the North Shattuck Association, AT&T and Andronico’s Community Market.

    It would be more engaging if you would have notified your readers somehow, somewhere that this was happening.  Or am i missing a page on your site? Maybe I am.
