We have selected a bar named Thalassa in Downtown Berkeley for our next Meetup. Thalassa has a full bar with many tap and bottled beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. We will be in the front bar/lounge area. There are several pool/billiards tables available for $5 an hour and a Shuffleboard table. Thalassa is on the same street as the Berkeley BART station (Shattuck Ave) and only a few blocks walk North of the station. To find the bar you need to look for an Orange building with the number 2367 on it as the bar's name is not on the building. Supposedly this is a measure to stop college students drinking which I am sure is very effective. Only 21's and over allowed and you must bring ID as they are very strict on checking. Thalassa does not have a kitchen, but they allow outside food to be brought in and there are several restaurants nearby. Hope to see you there.
