Best place to locate in the SF/SanJose area for techie & artist couple

by DJStarr

Hi all,
We're relocating to the Bay area, (born here in CA!)and will be looking for jobs AFTER we pick a place to live. Where would be a good central area to position oneselves for job convenience for a Tech-guy (Oracle, AbInitio, ETL,Data Warehousing,etc.) and an artsy, design/marketing gal?
We're considering Mtn. View, San Mateo, Palo Alto, San Jose, Sunnyvale, Redwood City, Los Gatos, etc. Love Santa Cruz, but don't want to travel over the hills via 17 daily. The other areas seem central to SF and the San Jose corridors, and most have good CalTrain/BART access. Am I correct here?
We really want a great walking/clean/fun/artsy/gardeny downtown - lots of paths, trails, walk to Whole Foods/Trader Joes, etc. We seem to gravitate toward gay neighborhoods - usually the most architecturally and visually cool areas, it seems! Cool, well-traveled people, not too white or old or suburban.
Any tips or ideas for great little neighborhoods?
Thanks Everybody!
DJ Starr

I would recommend Mountain View. Close to Whole Foods/Trader Joes etc kinda things. There are many town homes/condo etc like communities that are close to CalTrain. Decent downtown plus you are a throw away from Palo Alto University Avenue. If you want BART you have to go to Fremont (other side of Bay) then you will have to cross bay daily to go to Oracle etc. Sunnyvale is not bad but it is probably one notch below Mtn View. Campbell is not bad but Caltrain is not close. If you are interested in Victorian kinda architecture then Willow Glen close to Campbell is good. You probably will have to buy/rent house since that is not a condo kinda area.
There is a recent development called Santana Row with shops, restaurants (880 & stevens creek). That is my personal favourite since appts/condos are above these shops. If I did not care for house, I would live there. But it is not that close to Caltrain...

Travel Tips for San Jose

Barbecue

by venteeocho

There are people who can chuck a bit of meat on a hot plate, eat it when it's done and happily say they've just had barbecue (BBQ), but these people wouldn't be American: barbecueing in the USA is serious business. Ever since 16th-century Spaniards saw the Arawaks of the West Indies with prototype spatulas in their hands, staring into a smoking pit, and yelling out something in Tainos (it sounded suscipiciously like 'Honnn-eeey! The meat's nearly done'), barbecue has been the pièce de résistance of USA-style cuisine.

Like its founding country, barbecue - and everything to do with it - is big, brash, and subject to a thousand different, and passionately-held, beliefs. Everyone has a theory on the proper 'rub' (salt, sugar and spice mix), 'mop' (meat moisturiser) and 'smoke' (cooking device); heated arguments can break out over what cut of meat is the best; sauce recipes are passed down from generation to generation like family heirlooms; and as to the burning question of whether or not tomato has any business being in barbecue sauce - just don't go there.

Sauce or rub, wet or dry, there are only a few points that everyone agrees on: the meat has to be kept away from the flames and cooking time is always 'just a few more minutes' (the meat is only ready when it starts falling off the bone in tender hunks). It can be eaten with lashings of sauce and a pile of 'fixin's' (cole slaw, baked beans or candied yams), or just slapped between two slices of bread and eaten on the run. In fact there are as many different ways to experience barbecue as there are states, from dry-rub beef brisket in Texas to chopped pork shoulder, drizzled with sauce and served as a sandwich, in Memphis.

AGNEWS CLOSURE PLAN (Bay Area Project):

The 2003-04 Governor's Budget directs the Department to develop a plan to close Agnews Developmental Center by July 2005. The closure plan will be developed with input from an Advisory Committee consisting of consumers currently and formerly living at Agnews, their families, employees of Agnews, regional centers, advocates, and others. Welfare and Institutions Code Section 4474.1 provides direction to the Department on much of what has to occur in the development of the plan, what issues the plan must address, the time lines for submitting the plan to the Legislature for consideration and prohibits the Department from implementing the plan without Legislative approval.

Guadalupe River Parks

by Ewingjr98

The Guadalupe River is important as it is the river on which the Spanish Mission Santa Clara de Asís and el Pueblo de San José were founded in 1777. While the mission were eventually moved away from the river becoming the city of Santa Clara, the pueblo grew into the modern city of San Jose. After years of development then flooding, the banks of the river were finally designated for parkland, much of which has become Guadalupe River Park & Gardens.
The area's Master Plan calls for gardens that reflect the history of San Jose as the Garden City.

Today this series of parks stretches about three miles along the edge of downtown and includes Guadalupe Gardens, Arena Green, Ryland Park, McEnery Park, Children’s Discovery Park, Columbus Park, and Almaden Lake Park. It also forms part of the 11-mile long Guadalupe River Trail.

Guadalupe Gardens northern edge is just south of the San Jose Airport and immediately west of the river. Beginning in 1975, over 630 homes were removed from this area because of airport noise and safety concerns. In 1986, the city proposed the creation of recreational areas within this recently cleared airport approach zone. This area now consists of Courtyard Garden & Taylor Street Rock Garden, a Visitor & Education Center, the Heritage Rose Garden, and the Historic Orchard.

Flying into San Jose

by MDH

Mineta San Jose International Airport (or just SJC) is the main air gateway to the Silicon Valley. Recent (and continuing) expansions have improved the quality of the airport and have made it more accessible to other cities around the country and continent. City planners hope to make SJC the second busiest airport in the Bay Area (after San Francisco and Oakland). Because the airport is compact, be aware of traffic around peak travel hours.

SJC can be accessed by Highway 87 and I-880. Follow the signs to the airport.

Just out of curiousity, you'll notice that downtown San Jose's buildings are low--no more than twenty flights--because the flight path for many of SJC's flights pass directly overhead. So if you fly into San Jose, you'll see downtown pass fairly close right under you

Be careful !

by azzurri about Teske's Germania Restaurant-Bar & Beer Garden

The food and drinks are fairly good. Just be careful. We were overcharged for drinks. We were then treated very rudely by Scott when we questioned the bill. My friend visiting from Germany said that he had never been so insulted. We will never go back. My advice to you...if you are going to try it, count your drinks and look at your bill very carefully.
