Silicon Valley Comic Con: Since comic book movies come out faster than the seasons change and we’re looking at a new Star Wars movie every year until the sun burns out, it’s safe to say we’re all nerds now. So why not join the collective with a smile on your face at Silicon Valley Comic Con this Friday to Sunday, April 6-8. Come see David Tennant, Stan Lee, Christina Ricci and Steve Wozniak, because he’s automatically allowed into anything that has “Silicon Valley” in the title. The San Jose Convention Center is just a short walk from the San Jose Diridon Caltrain Station, and cosplay on board is greatly encouraged, because that’s awesome.
Painting and Pupus: I don’t live in Hawaii. I’ve come to terms with that, but at the same time, I’m disappointed with myself and my life decisions. If you’re in the same boat as I am, the Kaululehua Hawaiian Cultural Center can give you a taste of the islands without the need for a plane ticket. Amateurs and experts alike are welcome to spend an evening painting, eating and drinking (I’m an amateur painter at best, but am an expert at the other two) to help the organization participate in the 2018 Ka’aha Hula ‘O Halauola Conference. Tickets are still on sale for this fun event held a few blocks from the South San Francisco Caltrain Station.
San Carlos Caltrain Station Construction: Beginning early this morning, April 2, the entrance to the plaza in front of the San Carlos Caltrain Station at El Camino Real and San Carlos Avenue will be permanently closed to traffic. If you are picking up or dropping off at the station, please do so at the new Transit Center parking lot at El Camino Real and Olive Street. Pedestrian access will still be available.
San Mateo County Transit District Board Week: If you’re reading this, then you care a lot about public transit. And if you care a lot about public transit, there’s no better place to be than the SamTrans Building at 1250 San Carlos Avenue in San Carlos for a trio of board meetings. We’ve got SamTrans (2 p.m., Wednesday the 4th), Caltrain (10 a.m. Thursday the 5th) and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (5 p.m., Thursday the 5th), so all we need is you. We’re just a short walk from the San Carlos Caltrain Station, and we can grab boba afterwards if you’re buying. For those who can’t make it, check out our livestream!
