Emporium SF

Emporium SF is the latest in a much needed genre of nostalgic gaming centers that infuse live Djs with massive video backdrops of The Bay Area’s favorite sports teams.

When I say gaming center, it’s just that: pinball, foosball, billiards, old school, with a some new school peppered in.

The bar areas are great, spacious even on Saturday nights, pumping new/familiar mixes, with the street art “feels” really adding a warming tone this eighties kid can appreciate.

The video games speak for themselves although the Emporium may want to invest in a curator/engineer to make sure they are not only looking great, but play as intended for long term use.

If you haven’t been, stop in! It’s definitely easy to get lost in the nostalgia, bells, bleeps, and colors…. 🙂 Good times!

Vibrant Sights In S.F.

San Francisco is a bright and lively city. We are experiencing warmer than usual temperatures that really make The City By The Bay one of the most amazing places on the planet. The sights, sounds, and food are as vibrant as the locals and tourists alike.

Below are a few shots from yesterday’s adventure inspired by Chinese New Year. More to come!

February 16th is Chinese New Year, The Year of the Dog.

Travels From The South Bay

Though much of this area is crowded with tourists quite often, the spectacular views and pockets of San Francisco history that surround you definitely make up for it.

I’ve been here since 1996 and consider the bay Area my second home. There are many hidden corners in the San Jose, San Francisco Bay Area’s. Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it…….

To quote one Mr. F. Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

These photos are about a year old with the shipping containers from the East Bay and a shot on the way to San Francisco via the Bay Bridge.

I will revisit this area over the  weekend and hopefully have an update from Aquatic Park & more!


Rancho San Antonio County Park

Parking is impossible on the weekends after 8:00 am, so get up early and explore your world as the sun rises with the day. We have many hidden corners in the San Jose, San Francisco bay area!

Challenge yourself to get lost and stop worrying about losing that cell phone signal.

One day we in the future we may all look up and say, “I remember when when didn’t have all this drone traffic overhead.”

For now, there is plenty of sky and there are still hidden corners of the Valley that NEED to be explored on and off the trail..
