Best Geek Hangout
There's only one place around where you can find World of Warcraft players, Magic the Gathering addicts, and Vampire role players all playing games in the same place. That place is Eudemonia, at the foot of UC Berkeley's campus. Inside its doors is a magnificent glass case with Magic cards splayed out like dissected insects. Rows of Internet PCs behind the games and toys up front are frequently used by patrons for World of Warcraft raids and Team Fortress fisticuffs. But behind that, it's an unadulterated fire-hose of pimply-faced Internet denizens, swapping cards, rolling dice, and bantering about the latest 4chan memes. It's the geekiest place in the Bay Area, and a great place to spend some time.
