Ballet, Afro-Cuban music, local art, a documentary premiere and Cal track & field provide plenty of choice for weekend activities
Korean-jazz fusion, dance, pioneers of women’s politics on stage, jazz and Liszt’s most challenging work, all this weekend.
Diving into the lives of plants at UC Botanical Garden, grooving with the Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, or enjoying photos and ‘photo haigas’ in a café: just three of our weekend activity picks.
A fungal fair — yes you read that right — a prestigious orchestra, a one-man play, songs of resilience and a movie marathon: all happening in Berkeley this weekend.
Two events to celebrate MLK Day, the ‘How to do Nothing’ order at the library, a reggae salute to Peter Tosh and a staged reading of a play — our picks for your weekend activities.
Mammaries, mass and municipal codes.
Kick off 2020 with a surrealist portrait or nature journaling. You could also take in some cute animals, jazz and David Bowie, all this weekend.
Plenty of holiday cheer to be had — from Klezmer to Christmas music — or you can just watch the Cal women’s basketball team continue its winning streak.
To enjoy: A free concert, free movies, a holiday neighborhood potluck, an Americana music festival and winter delights on the waterfront.
To do: Light a Christmas tree, romp in the snow, peruse handmade prints, paintings and ceramics.
A children’s book series event, a tribute concert to Bette Golden Lamb, a Latinx dance festival, a musical about the godfather of soul and a reminder about a 50-year-old Berkeley institution.
To do: Run in the Berkeley Half Marathon, see one — or two — Cal student theater productions, listen to a “mass-up” of choral music, or explore an exhibit about the African American community in Berkeley.
