Spenger's Seafood Grotto, Berkeley

Sketching in Spenger's "High Room" named for the high ceilings, 5x7", ink & watercolor 
We met Tuesday night at the historic, oldest restaurant in Berkeley, Spenger's Fish Grotto. I had called the day before to see if we could sketch in the room whose walls are covered with taxidermy animals and fish. When I arrived a bit late I found our group of six already sitting at a big table in the middle of  the room, which the manager had opened and designated just for us. 

We are delighted that Berlin Urban Sketcher and illustrator Olga Prudnikova joined us Tuesday night and will be coming along on our sketch outings while she is in Berkeley the next couple months.

Thank you Spenger's general manager Richard, for your support and hospitality. We had a great time sketching and snacking on the famous creamy, thick clam chowder.
