Bay Area Wedding Fair…in Levi’s Stadium?: Normally the site for sporting events where gigantic men bash violently into each other, Levi’s Stadium will be home to a decidedly more-refined group of individuals this Sunday, March 20, when the football stadium hosts the Bay Area Wedding Fair. For couples planning their nuptials, the event will have it all—displays from more than 100 local wedding planners, live fashion shows and exhibits showcasing high-fashion wedding gowns. Plus, there will be plenty of prizes with Las Vegas Getaway trips planned for 50 lucky entrants and a special grand prize—a $10,000 wedding package gift. Couples attending the fair, which runs from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., can travel on Caltrain to the Mountain View station, where they’ll be able to transfer to Valley Transportation Authority’s light-rail line for a direct trip to the stadium.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!: While San Francisco hosted a big Irish parade last Saturday, this Thursday, March 17, marks the official St. Patrick’s Holiday. In Menlo Park, the Rosyln G. Morris Activity Center will be celebrating by hosting their St. Patrick’s Day Party. The event will feature traditional Irish music, with performances from the Rosin the Bow Band, classic Irish fare, such as corned beef, cabbage and red potatoes, and even some Irish Coffee to get you going. The festivities kick off at 10 a.m. on Thursday. The event will take place at the activity center’s “Little House,” located on 800 Middle Ave. in Menlo Park, which is about a 10-minute walk from the Menlo Park Caltrain Station. Additionally, SamTrans Route ECR drops passengers off at El Camino Real, three blocks away from the event center.
Muni Hosting Open House on San Bruno Improvement Project: San Bruno Avenue, a main arterial road in San Francisco’s southern neighborhoods, will be the focus of a community forum on Saturday, March 19 at 10 a.m. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which is responsible for all of the city’s surface transportation policies, will host an open house at the Family Connections center to discuss its San Bruno Ave Multimodal Improvement Project. The improvement project aims to make the street safer for pedestrians and cyclists, improve Muni reliability, and increase parking options in the neighborhood. The Family Connections center is located on 2565 San Bruno Ave., and can be reached directly by Muni’s 9-San Bruno bus line.
