publisher’s letter » It’s the Berkeley/Oakland Book! » Diablo celebrates the food, recreation, culture, and shopping in two of the East Bay’s great cities. Growi n g up, I loved hiking in the 10 theberkeleyoaklandbook.com Oakland hills, checking out the scene on Telegraph Avenue, and grabbing a hot dog from Chris and John’s on Broadway. I looked forward to Cal games at Memorial Stadium and spending warm afternoons at A’s games. I was always delighted by the variety of things to do in Berkeley and Oakland back then, and there is even more to do today. Berkeley and Oakland are the heart of the East Bay. These eclectic, diverse, and dynamic cities truly have something for everyone—and each has its own unique personality and identity. The area has always been on the leading edge of the culinary scene, not only in launching trends that have revolutionized how we eat, but also in the variety of dining experiences offered. No matter your craving, you are guaranteed to find the perfect dish in Berkeley or Oakland. The arts scene is unparalleled: Consider the reputation of the Oakland Museum of California and Cal Performances, or the success of Berkeley Repertory Theatre and Oakland Art Murmur. A wealth of music, theater, art, and entertainment options abounds. And with a leading academic institution such as UC Berkeley anchoring the area, there’s no shortage of educational, cultural, and athletic events at your doorstep. If you are looking for the ultimate East Bay experience, it’s right here! We’ve designed The Berkeley/Oakland Book to help you enjoy it. We hope you do! barney fonzi Publisher b fon z i@mai ldiab lo.com
