Where: Goldman Theater, 2150 Allston (at Oxford), Berkeley

When: Tonight, 6-10 p.m.

Cost: $10 in advance, $15 at the door

The rundown: We imagine there is a Venn diagram that would show a wide crossover between foodies and public TV supporters. Tonight in Berkeley, there's an event geared toward that overlap. Fresh from its recent debut at the Sonoma Film Festival, the pilot of the new PBS series Food Forward is being screened at the David Brower Center's Goldman Theater, followed by a meet-and-eat with the show's creators catered by Lagunitas Brewing, Annie's Organics, and other sponsors. The show looks to be a powerful exploration of the evolving food movement in America, so tonight's event should be a winner.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
