The UC Berkeley art museum offers some interesting exhibits and decent pieces of art, but it doesn't provide enough, and its range in style is limited. However, they often hold temporary exhibits and even throw art parties which can be fun. The staff is engaged and dedicated to promoting art and art appreciation.
Gamestop provides a large selection on the latest videogames for all major consoles - xbox, nintendo, sony, as well as other third party competitors. The selection is varied but the prices may be high. If you shop around, you may find that gamestop overprices its games. However, the staff is very knowledgible and will help you find what you want.
Sportmart provides relatively cheap merchandise, depending on the sporting good for which you search. However the staff can be hostile and unfriendly at times, and the stores can be messy. This is attributed to the fact that customers are reckless and will wantonly leave opened equipment lying on the floor. However, their management should take care of that.
Staples is a decent office supply store in the sense that it provides pencils, pens, books, etc. However, the staff are usually unfriendly and unwilling to help you, and the prices border on highway robbery. While Staples prides itself in low prices, you can always find the same product cheaper at other office supply stores.
Office Depot has all of your office supplies need. Its a very boring store to work or shop at, but it has everything you need for your home, school, or office. The prices are also realistic, they will not shaft you for pencils and pens. While no one buys computers there, office depot is a very useful resource.
The tapioca tea here is decent and flavorful. However, the patrons are far from flavorful. You will find more than enough teenage delinquents hanigng around here after school or loitering as a full time job. If you can ignore these ridiculous customers, you will be able to enjoy quality tea because the boba is not bad.
Filibertos is an authentic Mexican food store, right down to the dirtiness of its facilities. While the stores may be dirty, the food is good and filling. The California Burritos are excellent and will beat any major American immitation Mexican food chains such as Taco Bell. If you are open minded and can forget the dirtiness, you will like it.
Fat Slice delivers what it offers: a nice juicy fat slice of pizza. However, the restaurant is not particularly clean (it sometimes smells like body odor) and there is limited seating. The pizza quality is decent and the prices are low, however, it is nothing compared to Blondies pizza. Fat slice will feed you, but there are better places in Berkeley.
Blondies Pizza is one of the best pizza joints up in Berkeley aside from Zachary's deep dish. This place has high quality pizza, big slices, and reasonable prices that are affordable for the college student budget. I've eaten here almost everyday since I moved to school and I still love it. Come visit and have a taste for yourself.
Wendy's excels delivering fast food quickly. If you are on your lunch break, you will receive your food in a timely manner. However, speed is taken in leu of quality, and thus the food can often give you stomach aches, depending on who you are. If you have a solid stomach and are on a fast paced schedule, you should eat here.
