So it might have been a little drizzly today. So it might also have been effin’ freezing. So the forecast might say the same about tomorrow. “So what?” asked attendees of the Telegraph Ave. Holiday Street Fair, “At least I’m productively not studying for finals and buying presents for people, instead of sleeping or watching last week’s episode of Gossip Girl … again. ” Ay, there’s the rub.

Indeed, Berkeley’s kitschy craftsmen were out in full force today, vending their wares to eager crowds of consumers hopped up on holiday spirit and burnt out on studying. And–weather permitting–they’ll be back tomorrow. Don’t miss the chance to find earrings for your mom, a tie for your dad, a Bob Marley T-shirt for your stoner brother, a didgeridoo for your stoner brother and a troupe of Hari Krishnas for your soul, all in the same place.

When did it ran at all yesterday? I was outside all day and didn’t feel a drop.
Did it only rain on Telegraph?
