    SLIDERBAR Today is the opening day for SliderBar, Berkeley’s newest location for tiny, juicy hamburgers (tipped by us earlier this month). The restaurant, at 2124 Center St., between Oxford and Shattuck, is in the former location of the Green Earth Café, and just steps away from Cal. Co-owner Ashwani Dhawan is a Silicon Valley hi-tech entrepreneur who has already created two other SliderBar locations and has plans to open two more in the coming months. To celebrate the opening, Dhawan will give away 1,000 free sliders on Sat. Aug. 24. The menu includes The Old Timer (Niman Ranch beef, gem lettuce, tomatoes, pickled onions, house made pickles, and secret sauce), the Three Alarm (Niman Ranch beef patty, cheddar cheese, habanero pepper jam, sliced serrano chilis, pickled jalapeños), and the Magic Mushroom (balsamic-marinated portobellos, onion rings, pickled onions, Swiss cheese, and arugula). SliderBar will also serve the Red and Gold, which is a concoction of corned beef brisket, sweet red pepper sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and a secret sauce.
