Over in Berkeley, cheese appreciators should check out THE PASTA SHOP on Saturday October 20th. Blogger and author Kirstin Jackson will be there promoting her new book, It’s Not You, It’s Brie. You’ll be able to taste cheeses, play cheesy games, and learn a little bit more about the differences between French and American cheeses. The event goes from 1pm-4pm, and more details can be found here. 1786 Fourth St. at Delaware, Berkeley, 510-250-6004.
Berkeleyside reports that the short-lived DIVINO location has a new name and concept: PIZZA MODA. Details are scarce, but it look like the owners are trying to do higher-end artisanal pizzas and plan to open in November. 1401 University Ave. at Acton, Berkeley.
