Diablo Publications Plans the Launch of The Berkeley/Oakland Book, the Third in Diablo Magazine's City Series
The Berkeley/Oakland Book will showcase the Berkeley and Oakland areas, highlighting these vibrant cities and their grand cultural events, culinary options, festivals, and historic venues.
Diablo Publications announced today the release of The Berkeley/Oakland Book, the third in a series of publications highlighting the cities and towns of the East Bay. The publication will be distributed to more than 13,000 readers in the San Francisco East Bay area. Produced by Diablo magazine, The Berkeley/Oakland Book will provide an in-depth look at these extraordinary cities located on the east shore of the San Francisco Bay and will highlight all that makes them such great destinations.
Editorial coverage will include food and drink, parks, recreation, and city life. The Berkeley/Oakland Book will cover each city’s unique offerings, as well as some of their common characteristics. These cities offer everything from white tablecloth restaurants and museums to classic performance venues, such as the Paramount Theatre and Zellerbach Hall. The area is also home to UC Berkeley, recognized as the fifth best public university in the United States by the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings.
“These two cities are so vibrant and offer so many exciting things to see and do: The area is full of great restaurants, nightlife, and entertainment options, and also has a wide range of outdoor and recreational activities,” states Barney Fonzi, Group Publisher for Diablo Publications.
The City Book Series was launched in 2012 with the Walnut Creek and Lamorinda books.
Commenting on the most recent addition to the City Book Series, Rick Kattenburg, Vice President of the Orinda Chamber of Commerce, states, “There’s great information on each town, with very well written write-ups. The restaurant reviews are excellent, and the graphics are superb: It’s one of the best books of this kind I've seen.”
A must-have resource, The Berkeley/Oakland Book will be available at local travel information venues, hotels, advertiser locations, Chamber of Commerce offices, and at various events throughout the region. It will also be mailed to select homes with Diablo magazine.
