Cal’s 50-31 victory over Southern Utah this weekend didn’t just signify our first win, it also delivered us discounts all over the city of Berkeley, thanks to Touchdown Mondays! The celebration calls for 3% off for every touchdown Cal scores against their opponent — totaling 21% for this Monday.

But, while you might be familiar with Touchdown Mondays affiliation with the Cal Student Store, you may not know about the plethora of restaurants around the city that also take part in the awesome discounting. So because your wallets are surely already thinning from beer and Top Dog on game day, here’s a list all participants for your future Monday penny pinching — assuming that Cal keeps the touchdowns coming.

Berkeley Dog, which just opened in the same shopping center as Saddleback Lanes in Mission Viejo (yeah, we might be from around there), is the newest and, so far, only non-Bay Area outpost of Top Dog. All we can say is that if the new one keeps similar hours to the Southside location it’ll have the stoned bros in lifted trucks flocking from miles around to get a 2 a.m. taste. Yum!

foie-gras

Apparently, fatty duck liver is cause for city-wide identity crisis. The delectably gout-inducing dish known as foie gras has put Berkeley’s values of gourmet cuisine and animal rights at odds.
