gourmet ghetto

Turnhere.com has a great short (3:47) video on the Gourmet Ghetto in Berkeley; the eight square blocks of foodie heaven just up the street from where we live.  (The guy in the beret is a fixture outside the original Peet’s; he’s about as Berkeley as you can get.) 

See also, in case you haven’t read it already, Michael Chabon’s fantastic essay The Mysteries of Berkeley.
