What the heck are you doing in Santa Clara?
"I'm visiting Santa Clara University"
I went to middle school nearby here. The school has a nice mission with a nice rose garden and seems to be a favorite place to get married, El Camino towards San Jose has a good coffee shop and a record store nearby where you can get tickets to most electronic shows. The best thing in Santa Clara, Bullwinkle's is sadly gone, which begs the question, why are you in Santa Clara!? Utilize that easy-access train!
"I'm in sububan hell"
There are many towns inbetween San Jo and SF and if you are caught in them, then these pages will hopefully provide you with some relief. If not, get thee out of there!
