OK, this is a little tongue in cheek and I mean it to be light-hearted, but this caught my eye for the admit weekend for incoming Stanford student parents:
"Dine and Shop Around Palo Alto
This special event focuses on giving parents a chance to explore all that the Stanford-Palo Alto area has to offer. Between 5:30 and 9:30 p.m., three free shuttles take visitors to and from Stanford to Stanford Shopping Center and downtown Palo Alto. A separate shuttle takes the same route, but goes to California Avenue business district. Sample the ambience of Palo Alto, shop and dine and enjoy entertainment in Palo Altos' quaint business districts."
Wow - all the way South to California Ave??? I guess we just can't let them see past Page Mill, huh?
What about Straits cafe? Hobbee's? Dinah's? Happy Donuts? Sunday Brunch at Cabana? Trader Vic's? Driftwood for a sandwich? The deli at Piazza's? Mike's Cafe? Compadre's? Grullense? Celia's? Sushi Tomo? Fuki Sushi? Dan Brown's?
C'mon down, you might enjoy it!
