“Movies, Music & Mai Tais” Historic Walking Tour of Southwest Berkeley

Sunday, September 19, 2021 - 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm | Cost: FREE
Meet on the sidewalk in front of Caffè Chiave | San Pablo Ave (at Dwight Way), Berkeley, CA


Did you know that the Southwest Berkeley area has been a hotbed of innovation in music, movies & cocktails over the past 80+ years?

Let’s relive some of the coolest moments together.

Discover how the miniature world from “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” was built in a warehouse on Tenth Street. Learn what inspired Bobby McFerrin to create “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” in an impromptu recording session on Parker Street. And many more.

Meet on the sidewalk in front of Caffè Chiave on San Pablo Ave (at Dwight Way). We’ll cover roughly 1 mile by foot over the course of about 1.5 hours. Free tour. See you there!
