We were told that this place was the replacement for the "original" Bear's Lair in Cal's campus student union, an honest, original, beer tavern that we frequented for years on football game days. But this establishment is just getting going, with no TV's working and the personnel, although friendly and willing, just learning their skills.
The big problem, for me, is that the warm, tavern, beer-joint, atmosphere is gone, replaced by a cold, antiseptic, plastic-furniture, chain hamburger restaurant feel. I can go to McDonald's or Burger King anytime, a campus hangout should have some character of its own!!
Food's pretty good, but I'm not going back.
