News & Events

The Faculty Club is the site of numerous events, both private and public, which are too many to publish.  For example, the UC Berkeley Career Center reports that 90% of campus recruiting events are held at our facility.

Dining & Bar News

Normal hours and service continue through the summer for breakfast and lunch. Except for our Prime Rib Dinner special, the Kerr Dining Room will be closed for dinner during the month of June. We will, however, offer a limited dinner menu in the Bar, Monday through Friday. We're also bringing back our popular summer-time Taco Tuesdays and Tapas Thursdays, beginning June 7.

Our next Prime Rib Dinner will be on Tuesday, June 7, 5:00 pm -8:30 pm. The cost for a great meal of salad and prime rib au jus is only $18.95. Bring your own wine; corkage fee will be waived! Reservations are recommended.

Monthly Art Exhibit  - Allan Jensen

 Allan Jensen has been a member of the Faculty Club since the late 1970's and a member of the Faculty Club Monks Chorus since 1987. His art transcends singing and this exhibit focuses on Mr. Jensen's avocation as a photographer.

Mr. Jensen's photographs include samples of nature and wildlife images currently featured on a permanent album at the Facebook pages entitled "Wildlife on the Richmond Bay Trail". This is his second exhibit at the faculty club and features a series of unique photos of the rare and endangered/protected California Clapper Rail

His beautiful and unique avian, flora, and landscape photos now include spectacular sunrise and sunset images, all of which have been featured in local and regional publications for many years. His work highlights the variety of what nature provides by way of simple walks around parks or preserves here in the Bay Area. Mr. Jensen continues to capture the return of the long absent Ospreys to the Bay Area whose numbers are now increasing.

Subjects of avian photographs include raptors, marsh birds and shorebirds. His many photos of birds "wading" with mirrored in water reflections caused a colleague to name them "your Narcissus collection".”Another fan gave me the best compliment I could have expected", she asked, "these are beautiful, but, how do you get the birds to pose like that!" I had to bite my tongue to not chuckle, and replied, "With lots of patience, thank you."
Please enjoy this month’s exhibit by Allan Jensen. Comments or inquiry can be sent to his business address, Seamless Web, 1201 Melville Square, Suite 411, Richmond, Ca. 94804. Numbered and signed and matted photo prints (without frames) are available at the exhibit price of $30.00, 20x30 enlarged and framed images begin at $350.00. All work will be signed and dated with data notes on the reverse side.
