Quirky Berkeley Walking Tour
with author Tom Dalzell
Sunday, October 23, 1 pm
$25/person, RSVP required
Author of the recently published guide Quirky Berkeley (Heyday Books), local activist and journalist Tom Dalzell has lived in Berkeley since 1984 and was once called “the arbiter of the eccentric” by the New York Times. He has been methodically walking the streets of Berkeley since late 2012 in search of quirky stuff, blogging about it at quirkyberkeley.com since 2013.
Sign up to join Tom on a 2-hour walk, starting at BAC and meandering up the northeast Berkeley hills. Major quirky manifestations will include the Hog Farm peace sign, a Buddhist altar on the street, Buldan Seka’s giant ceramic figures, Bruce Dodd’s giant orange, Mike Nagamoto’s rusting sax-playing skeleton, and Dick and Beany Wezelman’s African-themed house painting.
