A $1 endless bowl of popcorn is just five minutes away, literally a walk down the street from our house. Behold, the Albatross! If only they’d take credit card. Bring your darts. Bring your board games. Bring your (leashed) dog (before 8 pm). Heck, bring outside food and drink.
My favorite lesser-known tidbit about Albatross is their restroom signs. There’s an eggplant over the women’s restroom because, well, we carry eggs. There’s a sperm whale over the men’s restroom because, well, they carry sperm. (Or you can conjure up your own Moby Dick reference.)
There’s very little not to love about Berkeley’s oldest pub. (Again, cough, cash only.)
Albatross Pub. 1822 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley, California, 94710. (510) 843-2473.
