If you're the type to ponder such existential questions as what, exactly, makes an olive oil "extra virgin," you'll find the answer at the Pasta Shop's (1786 Fourth St., Berkeley) fourth annual Festival of California Extra Virgin Olive Oil, where, in addition to tastings, pairings, and cooking demonstrations, a panel of California olive oil producers (including Lucero Olive Oil, Pacific Sun Farms, and Corto) will discuss such distinctions. Other attractions at this year's showcase of extra virgins include a cooking demo with Pasta Shop Executive ChefScott Miller, an olive oil guessing game, and more. On Saturday, Mar. 17. 1-4 p.m., free. 510-250-6004 or
