An old time theater with old time prices and old time movies with a live organist.

Magic Mountain Playground
Magic Mountain Playground Reviews

Review:

My boyfriend and I recently came here for a marathon and afterwards wanted to check out this place. WOW! It is one cool place for children. Located at Coyote Peak, there is various playground equipment for children to enjoy, When I was a kid, I would have loved going down the long slides here. This place does remind me of a playground that I recall going to as a kid and is still around- Dennis the Menace Park in Monterey.

Shoreline Amphitheatre
Shoreline Amphitheatre Reviews

Review:

This is a great concert venue to come to. My boyfriend and I have seen many classic rock bands perform here over the years. There are just three things I do not like about this venue: it gets very crowded, food is costly here, and, they charge often for parking. My boyfriend and I prefer to park somewhere else for free and walk there.

California's Great America
California's Great America Reviews

Review:

My boyfriend recently surprised me with a day at Great America. We had a pretty good time however was disappointed that most of the rides we would want to go on would involve me needing to rent a $15 per day locker. Yes, everything costs lots of money here: storage, food, and souvenirs (unless you go to the clearance gift shop). But overall, this is a family centered amusement park that seems to frown on childless couples.

Millbrae Express Car Wash
Millbrae Express Car Wash Reviews

Review:

Glad to see that service here is still great after my last car wash. I had a groupon that had expired, but they were nice enough to validate it since they recognized me as a regular.

I was also worried that I would have to wait when I drove in to the lot, but they got through everyone super quick and I even made it to my yoga class on time!

A++ for being friendly, quick and efficient.

Definitely made my day!

SuperShuttle San Francisco
SuperShuttle San Francisco Reviews

Review:

Super Shuttle shared van shuttles may not be the cheapest (that'd be public transit) or the fastest (hello, taxi) way to get from SFO into the city, but it's pretty darn convenient. Just step outside the airport and get on the next van headed where you need to go -- it's a door-to-door drop-off service. There are plenty of other shuttle companies operating out of SFO, too, but this one has been around for decades and their prices are fair.

Go Kart Racing
Go Kart Racing Reviews

Review:

Went here for a company event. I did not participate although I have been Go Karting before. Unlike other facilities I've been to this has a longer track and looks more difficult. The laps my colleagues engaged in were 10-20 min long. I can only imagine how exhausted their arms were after holding onto the wheel for that long. They all zipped by me and looked like they were having a great tome!

Fiddler's Green
Fiddler's Green Reviews

Review:

A friend and I ate lunch here before she dropped me off at the airport. Since we both studied abroad in Ireland, it is only appropriate for us to eat Irish food when we can, so she took me to this pub.

The bread basket contained some delicious carbs, but my small order of fish and chips reallyyyyy hit the spot - especially doused in vinegar and salt. Perfectly crispy and generous portions too! It was like I was back in Ireland. Until next time, Fiddler's Green!

Katherine A. Aquino, OD
Katherine A. Aquino, OD Reviews

Review:

It's been awhile since I've found an optometrist that I like. The last one was in college at the student center...and that seems like forever ago.

Dr. Aquino listens to all my concerns and happily explains any questions I may have. Most importantly I feel comfortable around her unlike other doctors I've unfortunately encountered one too many times. The ones who make you seem like you're wasting their time and they have better things to do, but will gladly take your money.
