The Free Speech Movement Cafe

In mid-November 1999 the FSM Cafe Committee met in the construction zone to see the Cafe progress and discuss the wording and images for the FSM panels.  While we were there I took some photos to share and show the status of the building.

The planned opening for the FSM Cafe is January 18, 2000, the "official" Opening will be February 3, 2000. The inside seating has been expanded to seat 125 from the original 55 plan. There will be a lot of exterior terrace seating as well on the west end of the Cafe.

The FSM Cafe is one of the projects coming from the Steve Silberstein Gift to UC Berkeley.
