What to do in Berkeley?

There are so many events and things to do around Berkeley, that I could be writing pages and pages before I am finished writing about everything there is to do. Instead, I will just point you in the right direction by giving you websites or other information so that you can find what is suitable to your own interests. The events around Berkeley range from art shows, to concerts, to comedy shows, to movie screenings, and much more.

First, you can always check out what the Greek Theater has to office on (don’t forget to click on Berkeley Greek theater and not LA Greek theater). On that site, you will find a list of upcoming venues as well as options to buy tickets. Also, I would suggest looking at the events through Cal Performances or Zellerbach Hall. These are usually more classical music concerts, ballets, or other various performances. All students get 50% off ticket prices so it’s usually a good deal for great shows. If you are not in to music concerts, you might want to look into SUPERB, through the ASUC, which has movie screenings and comedy shows. They are always good deals, and usually very fun. They also are always held in Wheeler Hall, which is almost like a theater because of the layout of the stage. Don’t forget to look for the occasional free movie screening of a not yet released movie. Or maybe you like more of the independent, education films, and if so, check out Pacific Film Archive Theater. There are also many museums and art showings, such as in the art museum on Bancroft and Bowditch.

But, if none of these events float your boat, there is always San Francisco which is just a bart ride away. Enjoy your time in Berkeley with the all the events and happenings, and don’t spend all your time studying.
