North Berkeley’s “Gourmet Ghetto” houses some of the most storied restaurants in the Bay Area, including the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea, the Cheese Board Collective and Chez Panisse (the legendary restaurant is currently closed for repairs after a fire). On May 7, the fourth annual A Taste of North Berkeley: Gourmet Ghetto Restaurant Walk takes participants to 20 local cafes, shops and galleries. Tickets are just $25 and include tastings, treats and all kinds of fun.
Event proceeds benefit the Berkeley Lions Community Fund charities. Tickets and additional information are available from the Berkeley Lions Club.
