4/13/02 This building has a computer store, a repair shop and a little Thai
market. This market used to be over in the Fox Court building, but they
moved here, probably because of better visibility, and better parking.
I've just poked around the market, and the computer store, but I have done
some business with the repair guy here. We usually take our dead monitors
to him -- to see if he can fix them. Mainly because he's close.
4/13/02 This is the Salvation Army building. The main entrance is on
Sacramento, but the compound takes up quite a bit of space along University
Ave. I believe that this used to be the old site of Berkelely
City Hall long ago, since I saw a picture of them moving the building up the street
near the beginning of the century.
I've only been in here a few times during voting, when they held the voting
in this building.
4/13/02 Here is Bankgkok Thai Cuisine. It replaced the Won Thai Cuisine
which moved up to Rodeo, and where I still go on occasion with friends who
live in Rodeo. Prior to being Won Thai, this was the Mother India restaurant --
though I'm not so fond of Indian food, so I didn't go there often. Prior to
that, back in the early 80's this was a Chinese restaurant.
4/13/02 This is Wild Oats. A market that sells organic produce and vitamins.
Awhile back this was Living Foods, a similar kind of store, and before that
this location was the COOP natural food store. So, there's a long tradition
of organic produce being sold at this spot. I pop by here every once in awhile
to pick up food, though they don't have Pepsi Colas another, insufficiently
healthy items, which I suppose I do eat.
