Thank you to all of you who came to Berkeleyside’s latest Open Office on Wednesday evening at WeWork Berkeley, where Berkeleyside has its HQ. It was lovely to see so many of our talented contributors there — including Nancy Rubin who took all the photographs published here — as well as many loyal readers and members.

(If you spot someone in the photos who hasn’t been identified in the caption, let us know and we’ll update it.)

Until the next time! … Continue reading »

Come to give us feedback, tips, suggest story ideas, offer your services, or simply to say hello.

Announcing: Berkeleyside Open Office, July 15 at WeWork

Every so often, Berkeleyside likes to throw its doors open and hold an “Open Office” — a chance for the small Berkeleyside team to meet readers in an informal way — to grab a beer, shoot the breeze and generally have a nice evening. Whether we choose to discuss the vagaries of the city’s permitting procedures, the latest squirrel-gate episode or ideas for future Berkeleyside stories, is up to you!

It’s been a while since our last Open Office — it seems news gathering is a pretty time-consuming business — so we’re happy to announce that our next one will take place Wednesday, July 15, from 5-7 p.m. at WeWork in downtown Berkeley where Berkeleyside has its HQ. … Continue reading »

Berkeleyside will be holding Open Office hours on Thursday May 29, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at NextSpace in downtown Berkeley.

Berkeleyside readers can meet the Berkeleyside team, share ideas, grab a beer, and generally have a social time. Bring story ideas, berate us for what you feel we could do better, and tell us about the issues that matter to you in Berkeley. Hopefully many of our regular contributors — writers, photographers, designers and more — will be able to come, so you get to meet them too.

Berkeleyside was conceived as an online forum as much as an online newspaper and your input adds incalculable value to our coverage and our site. … Continue reading »

Don’t forget: this Thursday Berkeleyside is holding its second “Open Office” at Pane Italiano Qualita (more commonly known as PIQ) in downtown Berkeley.

We held our inaugural Open Office on May 11 2011 and had a great time. We drank coffee, ate delicious slices of pizza and talked. Ideas were thrown around, suggestions made, concepts discussed. Several of the people who showed up to chat and chow have since become regular Berkeleyside contributors. Others are valuable tipsters for stories. Still others became sponsors and advertisers. We answered questions and heard about what you wanted to see more of from Berkeleyside.

Most importantly, we got to know one another. Berkeleyside is a communtity endeavor above all, fueled by collaboration. … Continue reading »
