Pappy’s on Telegraph Ave. threw this man out after he was reported to have caused a disturbance on the evening of April 5. Police ultimately sent him on his way after he calmed down. One of a set of photos featured in our ’12 hours on patrol with the Berkeley Police’ report by Emilie Raguso.

Eating and drinking dominated this week.

Our most read story was Berkeleyside Nosh’s cool, interactive Drinking in Berkeley map. The map highlights spots around town where you can taste beer or wine, go to a bar, or buy your favorite tipple to drink at home. There’s a drinks renaissance happening in Berkeley, and clearly our readers want in. The map will be updated regularly and is accessible from the Nosh homepage.

Next up in pageview rankings was our report on the proposal to put a beer garden with food trucks on a corner lot in West Berkeley. Commenters were mostly in favor of the idea, and the story was heavily “Liked” on Facebook

A close third in terms of popularity was Emilie Raguso’s photo feature 12 hours on patrol with the Berkeley Police (above). Some readers expressed concern about the publication of a few of the images, while one reader said thank you for ‘putting a face on the BPD.’
