Where to get the best pizza in Berkeley Perhaps not surprisingly, our mission to identify the best pie — whether thin- or thick-crust, sausage-laden or vegan — has what seems like the whole of Berkeley engaged in a lively voting spree. [Photo of Cheese Board pizzas, above, by Christina Diaz.]
City votes to raise parking fees in downtown parking zone A reluctantly passed measure is met with mixed responses from Berkeleyans: most believe this is bad news for local businesses, as well as for drivers who want to shop downtown.

In the past week, Berkeleyside has published stories on subjects as varied as Berkeley’s inaugural street-food fest, free pet adoptions at the city’s animal shelter, the city’s under-the-radar, bi-weekly roda de choro” jamming sessions, and the flea market that has been going strong for more than 30 years.

We have literally dozens of stories on our to-do list every week — stories on education, crime, development and culture that directly impact all of us who live in Berkeley.

We can’t research and write these stories without your support. Please help us continue to break news and give the community a voice by becoming a Berkeleyside supporter — for as little as $5 a month. By doing so, you will be helping to champion independent local journalism in this crazy city we all call home. Thank you.
