Berkeleyside would like to express its gratitude to our current advertisers:
Tomorrow is Cal Day, the University of California Berkeley’s annual open house, which runs from 9:00 a.m. to a closing concert at 4:00 p.m. Honestly, if you can’t find something to interest you among the 370-odd events, consult your doctor. As the university’s Twitter account declared the other day, “Like the universe, Cal Day continues to expand.”
Yesterday we asked our readers what they thought of the new Kirk Peterson design for a new building to go on the northeast corner of Telegraph and Haste. A respectable 256 of you responded to our unscientific, imperfectly worded poll, and the verdict is that more of you like it than hate it (45% versus 26%).
Chances to buy — or at a minimum see inside — a Bernard Maybeck designed home in Berkeley come along rarely. The Kennedy-Nixon house at 1537 Euclid Avenue in north Berkeley has just gone on the market.
