Five February days in Berkeley, what is there to do?

A mature gal friend and I are spending a long holiday weekend in Berkeley this year.  What should we see/do, where should we eat (beside Chez Panisse)?

    I would hike at Redwood Regional Park over in Oakland.

    Walk the brand new San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge (or ride bikes!) The path starts in Emeryville right by the Ikea parking lot. There will be signs so you won't miss it.

    For lunch, my favorite spots are: Bakesale Betty, Gordo Taqueria, Tangerine Food Bar and Homeroom.

    I really like Comal, Gather and Box and Bells for dinner. Trappist Provisions has really good for beer if you want a low key place to grab a drink. Head to Ici Ice Cream after for dessert.

    Explore the Berkeley Rose Garden and stroll through the Albany Bulb for really cool (free) art.

    Update: so sad to find out that Box and Bells is no longer :( Head over to Zachary's Chicago Pizza instead. It is THE best pizza in the Bay area.

      Outstanding suggestions (and update), Valerie, thanks! Both of us are a bit wobbly, so the rose garden and art spot are most likely. We're taking your list (and map, if we can figure out how) and will try to make it to the dining venues you recommend! · (1 likelikes)

      I think you'd like Telegraph Ave then! Can't believe I didn't mention that. You can walk down this street and find a ton of quirky shops and art. There are a lot of street vendors too with local, hand made goods. Have a great time! · (0 likelikes)

    Eat Cheese Board Bakery & Cheese, it's great pizza! There's great food everywhere though. I'm a student so enjoy some cheap options like Gypsy's trattoria Italiana (Italian) and La Burrita (Mexican). The fire trails are nice for hiking in. There is the Chabot Space & Science Center up in the hills as well as Tilden Regional Park, which is pretty big and fun.
