Mark your calendars. Berkeleyside’s inaugural Open Office takes place this week, Wednesday May 11, 5:00-7:00pm.

The idea is that Berkeleyside readers can meet the Berkeleyside team in the real world, perhaps over a coffee, to talk and share ideas. We will also be open to suggestions and constructive criticism. Bring story ideas, offers to write or take photographs — and tell us about the issues that matter to you in Berkeley.

Our first Open Office will take place Wednesday May 11, 5:00-7:00pm at PIQ café, 91 Shattuck Avenue (between University and Addison) in downtown Berkeley.

For those who can’t join us at PIQ, we will be hosting concurrent on-line chat. Simply go to Berkeleyside and join the conversation in the live chat which will be streaming as our lead story.

RSVP on our Facebook Event page, or just turn up. We look forward to meeting you, on- or off-line.
