“Vintage decor combines with old-school comfort food such as prime rib and chicken cordon bleu to create a destination worthy of your next date night. The best deals are to be had during weekday happy hour from 3 to 6pm, but it's worth timing a visit to coincide with the nightly live music later in the evening, when the tunes range from live piano to trumpet-led jazz”

Park
“Beautiful beaches, hills, lagoons, and historical remains with views of San Francisco, East Bay, and Marin County. You can see all three famous bridges: Golden Gate, Bay Bridge, and San Rafael, only minutes away hiking over the hill from this house.”

“One of area's most entertaining gathering spaces since it opened almost two years ago. At the 12,000-square-foot warehouse and brewing space, find six of the brewery's core beers done in a traditional style (plus the odd limited release, such as the Festbier), as well as pool, bocce, pinball machines, a ping pong table, and board and arcade games. Serious gamers can join the Wednesday night rec room league, which includes a special glass for discounted beer and the chance to compete for various prizes in "parlor games for the non-athlete."”

Museum
“A visit to the 10,000 square foot Museum of operating model trains provides an inexpensive, fun-filled outing for young and old, with plenty of room for youngsters to stretch their legs and expend energy as they follow trains along the 200+ feet of public walkway.”
