On Sunday March 20, from 12noon to 5pm, six venues will feature free activities to give you a taste of their offerings, AND Downtown restaurants are offering food and drink specials for visitors. Explore the stunning architecture and collection of Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive at its new location on Center Street, and enjoy short films on their spectacular outdoor screen. Experience the newly reopened UC Theatre for drinks and snacks in its beautiful interior and be amazed by a demonstration of their Meyer Sound system. And rediscover classic venues with performance workshops at the Berkeley Rep, interactive bands at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, and live music at the California Jazz Conservatory. Start it all off with yoga, swimming, or a workout at the YMCA.


At each venue collect a different color Meet Me Downtown Day sticker. Show off a sticker at any participating restaurant or bar for specials available only that day! Collect all six stickers and register at the Welcome Kiosk at BART Plaza to win a Weekend Extravaganza for two. The Weekend Extravaganza includes two nights at Hotel Shattuck Plaza, dinner at local restaurants, and tickets to Berkeley Rep, Freight & Salvage and BAMPFA.
