Berkley Bob's Coffee Shop

We ran up to Berkley Bob's Coffee Shop tonight to get a feel for the vibe of the place. They have live music there and we wanted to check it out to make sure:
1. There was no smoking
2. The stage setup/sound system was decent
3. The acoustics of the room were good
4. And the coffee was good
Berkley Bob's passed with flying colors. One thing they had that I loved was a sketch book in which they encouraged guests to draw pictures, write poems, and leave words of wisdom. I carry a packet of colored pens in my backpack so I fetched them for Jilda and she whipped up an objet d' art.
They have open mic every Monday night 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. and they have a singer/songwriter or small group of musicians that play every other Saturday. This turned out to be an off week, but we learned from the Berkley Bob website that Microwave Dave will be playing there unplugged next Saturday night. Old Dave puts on a great show. We opened for him a few years ago at WorkPlay Theatre. He wasn't unplugged that night and he blew the roof off. What a great show.
