DBD 5.10.11 Help me be Tosh Lupoi

 
This summer, a colleague of mine is taking a trip to the Bay Area with her son, who is finishing up his junior year of high school here in O--HI--O.  Besides visiting the awesomeness that is San Francisco, a reason for the trip is to tour some colleges.  They plan to visit at least three while they are in northern Cali -- Cal, Stanfurd, and UC-Davis. 

In my truly humble and unbiased opinion, it is clear which of these schools is the best.

My colleague has asked me for some suggestions on what to do in Berkeley while they tour the campus and its environs.  She and her son are taking a guided tour of the campus, but they are also interested in "insider" suggestions. 

I have a few ideas.  But let's face it: as many of this CGB community knows, I am kind of vintage compared to the average CGB member.  Sure, I know the things at Cal for which I have a fondness: Triple Rock, Top Dog, 4th Floor of Moffitt Library, the Doe Library reading room, the Eucalyptus Grove, the LIfe Sciences Building, and countless others.  To put my alma mater's best foot forward for my colleague's son, I thought I'd throw this topic out there for the young(er) Cal alumni and current Cal students on this CGB community. 

What things should I suggest for them to do, on campus and off?  They are in Berkeley for a whole day. 

Thanks in advance.  BTW, the kid is a good student.  His dad is pushing for him to go for Northwestern or the University of Chicago (dad's a Chicago guy), but mom wants him to take a real good look at Cal and Furd.
