Christmastime in SSF

Fosco and Oz had dinner in South San Francisco last Saturday (at Thai Satay. Yum!). Fosco had never been down the main street in SSF (Grand Ave) and he was surprised by the charming downtown district. At Thai Satay, Fosco and Oz got a window seat to look at the SSF Christmas lights.

One of the nice things about the Peninsula is that many of the smaller cities within easy driving to SF and San Jose still have vibrant, attractive downtowns with shops and restaurants. Fosco is quite fond of the downtowns of Burlingame, San Mateo, Millbrae, and Palo Alto. These downtowns are a nice surprise for Fosco, who grew up in place where downtown areas were dead and everyone within a fifty mile radius shopped and ate at the same mall/restaurant/entertainment complex built in the middle of cornfields.
