IMG_0440Yes, Andronico’s is on the pricey side of grocery stores, so it’s never been our favorite place to shop. However, it has a place in our heart. After all, where else do we go for our fancy cheeses and quick grocery runs on Telegraph? The staff is friendly and students get 5 percent off, making Andronico’s a neighborhood standby. Seriously, they’ve been around for 82 years.

So we are sad to announce the closing of the Andronico’s location on Telegraph and Derby. Soon we will have to trek all the way to Northside if we need our Andronico’s fix. read more »


DSC02771The Clog left for home this past Thanksgiving weekend with thoughts of escape from general Berkeley chaos. We returned rested and full, and ventured to Sproul Plaza today to check up on the dear old Occupy movement.

Imagine our surprise when we saw almost no one out there.

Is the movement finally dying down? read more »


Not too long ago, the Clog traveled to Durham, N. Car., home to Duke University. We must say that we were extremely underwhelmed with their OccupyDSC02641 movement. And by their Occupy movement we mean their (essentially) lack thereof.

But that’s no surprise to anyone here. After all, if Duke students turned out to Occupy, they’d really be occupying themselves. The 1 percent preppies protesting the 1 percent would be equivalent to Jay-Z’s attempt to profit from the populist movement.

And for those Blue Devils who are part of the 99 percent, we really mean no offense. Perhaps all this Occupy Duke patronization is stemming from a deeper antagonism towards your basketball team.

The Clog loves food trucks, and we try to frequent Off the Grid and keep up with the dizzying world of on-the-go gourmet. So we decided to sit down and make a list of just five food trucks that we want to try.

    bacon1.  Bacon Bacon. Let’s begin with bacon, after all, bacon = breakfast, the first meal of the day. And it’s exactly what it sounds like, bacon everything, bacon all the time. Plus, if there’s one thing we love about the gourmet scene, it’s the comeback of bacon. While reading their menu, we proceeded feel a pang in our stomachs that only a lack of bacon brings. The Grilled Cheese, a simple take with something extra (you guessed it – bacon! As well as tomato, and “bacon jam”…what is that?). The LGBT (love the name), featuring little gem lettuce, goat cheese, bacon and tomato – essentially, all of our favorite things. read more »

We’ve mentioned before how science fascinated many during their childhood. Who wasn’t awed by the adventures of Ms. Frizzle? Thankfully, Cal is not only a place for us (now) bitter and jaded college students; the Lawrence Hall of Science offers various exhibitions to further cultivate children’s delight in the sciences. Although we at The Daily Clog are a good 10 years over the intended demographic group, we decided to take a trip up to the LHS planetarium. And why not? We were probably going to spend that that time re-watching episodes of  “30 Rock” over and over again, anyway. read more »


If you’re like us, your Facebooks are just clogged (see what we did there?) with people updating their turkey day activities. This Thanksgiving, we decided to find out what students lounging around Sproul Plaza were thankful for. From their butlers to croissants to sustainable Cheerios notebooks, we heard just about everything, so sit back and enjoy this clip.

As for the Clog, we’re  thankful for you guys, our faithful readers!


oops eraserHello Readers,

You might not have noticed, what with the hustle and bustle of getting home for Thanksgiving as soon as humanly possible, but some people have been getting preeeety upset about the potentially inappropriate police response on UC campuses, these past few weeks.

As such, you could have stumbled upon an email, courtesy of Bob Jacobsen (chair of the Berkeley Division of the Academic Senate), proposing a vote of no confidence in Chancellor Birgeneau, Executive Vice Chancellor Breslauer and Vice Chancellor LeGrande. This message, sent on behalf of the Berkeley Division of the Academic Senate, arrived in inboxes throughout the Cal community at precisely 6:05 p.m. and could be construed as an invitation to attend Monday’s Special Meeting to discuss read more »


Now that Thanksgiving is mere days away, the mad rush to pick up all the elements of the feast has officially begun! Sure, people might make a big deal over where they’re getting their turkey and how best to prepare the perfect cranberry sauce, but we at the Clog know that the only thing anyone really cares about is the pumpkin pie.

And so, we took it upon ourselves to scour Berkeley and eat obscene amounts of pie, all for your sake, dear reader. Because now, instead of scratching your head and wondering where to find the pie you’ve been craving, you can simply read this! read more »


You may not have noticed, but the Clog loves Harry Potterjust a little bit. But we’re not the only ones. After all just watch Quidditch practice, listen in on a campus tour (every guide makes at least one Harry Potter reference) or take a Harry Potter DeCal.

So it’s no surprise that we’re just a short trip away from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry: hogwarts880

INK BOWL 2011

As the Golden Bears prepared to take on the Cardinal, The Daily Californian went up against its cross-bay rival The Stanford Daily for honor, glory and an Exacto knife glued to a wooden plaque. Oh yes, dear readers, Ink Bowl 2011 went down yesterday afternoon at Sand Hill Fields on Stanford’s freakishly large campus.

“What is the Ink Bowl?” you might ask. read more »
