90’s Bar Crawl @ Downtown San Jose
Those looking to relive the glorious 90’s alongside some discounted drinks need look no further than the upcoming 90’s Bar Crawl on Saturday, March 2 from 3-10 p.m. It promises to be a party you won’t want to miss. Registration goes from 3-5 p.m. at Splash Bar. All participants must be registered by 5 p.m.
This is perhaps one of the best events to take public transportation to, both for your safety and your wallet. Save money by taking Caltrain to downtown San Jose via Diridon Station. Be sure to check Caltrain and/or VTA’s latest schedules. Please note that open alcoholic beverages on Caltrain are prohibited after 9 p.m. Have fun, be safe, and don’t forget your sense of ironic detachment!
StanceNation NorCal @ San Mateo County Convention Center
Car enthusiasts are invited to attend this year’s StanceNation NorCal Car Show at the San Mateo County Convention Center on Sunday, March 3, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., featuring “stanced, flush, poke, stretch, tuck and slammed cars.” If you know what any those words mean, this is probably the event for you.
While this event celebrates cars, we recommend saving the money and hassle of parking by riding Caltrain and/or SamTrans to the show. Caltrain’s weekend bus bridge will still be in effect, so check the latest weekend timetable or take the SamTrans ECR or 292.
Public Meetings Begin to Evaluate New Transit Service Along Dumbarton Corridor
Beginning this weekend, the San Mateo County Transit District and Cross Bay Transit Partners (CBTP) will host a series of introductory meetings about the future of the Dumbarton Rail Corridor in both the East Bay and on the Peninsula.
The Transit District and CBTP, an affiliation between Facebook and Plenary, are engaged in a public-private partnership to explore opportunities to improve transportation by establishing a new, high-quality, high-capacity public transit system along the Dumbarton corridor in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The public meetings will acquaint the community with the project partners, and will allow the community to learn about the project background, goals, funding, timeline and process. The public is strongly encouraged to attend the meetings in order to help shape the future of regional transportation.
