photo-4Backyard barbecues have long been a staple of the American summer experience and Fourth of July celebrations. However, we here at the Clog can’t seem to find anyone with a barbecue, or a backyard for that matter. Thus, we have opted to find delicious barbecue elsewhere. Besides, buying all the ingredients and preparing the food yourself is way too much work and we’re like totally too busy with studying and stuff.

Luckily for us, there exist two conveniently located bastions of affordable barbecued glory in (or near) Berkeley: Smokey J’s and the Brick Pig’s House. read more »

Everyone and their mother’s nazi memorabilia will tell you that in addition to being a vegetarian, a momma’s boy and an occasional cocaine abuser, Adolph Hitler was a painter. Yeah. That’s right. Who’s goosesteppin’ now, Josef Mengele?

Perhaps lesser known is a body of work produced during the Third Reich by Adolph’s cat counterpart, HitlerCat. In celebration of this much overlooked assemblage of cat still life, BAM has agreed to showcase the collection in a special ONE DAY retrospective. Today, Thursday, April 1.

Be there, or be a good for nothing dog.

PETA’s never-ceasing campaign for light and goodness continues this year with its annual competition to find the country’s crop of the most vegetarian-friendly colleges.

Berkeley has a fine tradition to uphold, what with its concentrations of vegetarian restaurants and the limpid-eyed daisy-twirlers who flock to nibble daintily upon baby carrots within them. So vote away! We placed last year too, and the first round competition this time around ain’t nothing we couldn’t steamroll in a sec. (For the record, those’re UC Santa Cruz, the University of Hawaii at Manoa and UCLA. Whose asses, we might add, just got handed to them by the Cal football team. Go bears?)

Hilariously, the Peta2 website observes that

… [it's natural for] a school integral to the protest movements of the ’60s … [to] continue the legacy by standing up to corporate meat mongers. Students’ brains are fueled by Tofu Scramble, Vegan Meatloaf, and Hazelnut Cutlets, among other fabulous foods.

Are you kidding? We still have nightmares about the tofu pizza.
