Week In Transit: ART, WINE, AUGMENTED REALITY, SAMURAI AND MANAGED LANES!

Sunnyvale Art & Wine:  We’re in Art & Wine Festival season on the Peninsula, delighting fans of day drinking and looking at things. This weekend marks Sunnyvale’s turn, with Murphy Avenue hosting more than 350 artists, live music, and a selection of beer, wine, champagne, sangria and icy margaritas. The Festival is happening practically on top of the Sunnyvale Caltrain Station, making this an easy weekend destination.

Augmented World Expo: Do you want to be a neuromancer? Then come to the Augmented World Expo 2017 on Wednesday, May 31, and find out how. The Santa Clara Convention Center hosts the world’s largest conference dedicated to augmented, virtual & mixed reality. Approximately 250 speakers and 200 startups will be showing off AR and VR toys and tech that may well end up changing the world and redefining how we interact with reality. Hop on Caltrain to the Mountain View Caltrain Station and catch the VTA 902, and question whether that’s air you’re breathing now.

Nippon Nights at the Roxie: You don’t need to have a Ninja Turtle tramp stamp to think that samurai are cool (don’t judge me). So get yourself up to the Roxie Theater Wednesday, May 31, and watch Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo, which brings Shintaro Katsu’s blind masseuse with a cane sword together with Toshiro Mifune’s Clint Eastwood-inspiring nameless ronin as they do badass things. Take Caltrain to the 16th & Mission BART Station and achieve a zen-like calm

TA 101 Managed Lanes Meetings: The San Mateo County Transportation Authority, along with Caltrans and the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG), will be hosting two public community meetings to present a proposed Managed Lanes Project on U.S. 101 in Northern Santa Clara County and San Mateo County. The first meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31, at San Mateo City Hall, and the second meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 5, at Redwood City’s City Hall.
