Garden City?
Casino? The only one I know, is the blackjack one, that I've seen on the freeway coming from San Pablo.

Yep. I work over there. I don't deal cards at all but I actually work for the finance company within the casino. As Judy says, try RAMEN HALU. I heard they are really good. It's funny, I've been there for 7 years and I still haven't given the place a try. I probably will soon.

Veronica, funny you mention San Pablo Casino. Our company works there as well. Any of you 21 or older CAGers that need a job, Garden City always hire (they're under new management now) and it's not a bad job. Lemme know if you're interested. :-P

You gotta love 80% off games...

I was at Best Buy today and grabbed Halo, Halo 2, DDR Ultramix and GTA: San Andreas.

I also picked up 3 copies of Virtua Fighter IV Evolution for PS2. If any of you CAGers want them, PM me. I'll ship them out for $4.00 each. :D

The stuff that was 80% were just only XBox games. I picked up what I basically missed out on. I still have a system (sealed up, never opened) that I won from a company function about 3 years ago. There's a nice set of games that went with it.

I also bought copies of Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution. Anyone that wants it, can still have it. I'm only asking $5 for basically shipping it out.

Act now, by this time tomorrow they'll be like $30! :lol:

Ha... That's pretty much why I could never get into VF. I'll just stick to training at my tiny roster of Soulcalibur/Tekken fighters. (VF players may commence shunning.)

So you paid $2 for Halo :xbox: and $4 for Halo 2 :xbox:?
And all original Xbox games were marked down 80% from their regular Best Buy price?

I'm gonna stop at $5 Metaly.

But yeah, it was insane. I was with my nephew getting checked out. At first, most of the Xbox games were going for regular price and my subtotal was at $103. By the time he input all his codes, the subtotal went to $22!

Needless to say, that made my night.

That is actually right by my favorite milk tea place, Verde Tea, although I've never tried it. Maybe next time I'm there.

I'm enjoying one of Verde's earl grey milk teas right now, as it turns out. :)

Good lord, there was a Fuck-ton of people for the 3:30 AM TDK Metreon Imax showing. I thought we'd be the first people in line around 12:30-ish, but I was damn wrong. There was probably about 50-75 people ahead of us already. We still managed to get some good seats though. Some people were still coming in to watch some other showings as 3:00 AM came around!

Goes to show how insane this movie is. But, it was all worth it. It was amazing.

Saw Spiderman 3 there. There was some technical issue about halfway through and the movie stopped. Sat there for nearly half an hour; was literally collecting my stuff to walk out when it came back on. No compensation offered.

I think I saw 300 and a Harry Potter flick there as well. I can't say I'm sold on the Imax experience. Worth doing once, but I don't think I'd do it again given the price premium.

Glad the movie rocks, though.

Hey you guys! Are any of you interested in receiving energy-saving lightbulbs, retractable clothelines, sink aerators and shiny showerheads for FREE?

I have a cousin that just hooked me up with all this stuff because PG&E pays him and his co-workers to install all this stuff at my house. There is absolutely no catch, and it's totally free for people living in the Bay (except San Francisco and Alameda, for some reason :'[ )!
They come to your house to install all these goodies, all in the name of helping out the community save their energy bills.
I'm usually against promoting an organization on teh interwebz, but with this program, you guys have absolutely nothing to lose... They're non-profit BTW. :)

If you're interested, lemme know and I'll give you all the info via PM. Trust me, it's all good. ;)

Here's their website...http://www.risingsunenergy.org/cyes.htm

He says that Alameda has a different utility company there. They and PG&E are completely different entities. So basically PG&E installs these energy measures for PG&E customers.

I guess that sucks for Alameda... sorry man. ;)

Like Civickid said, I get my ramen at Halu Ramen. They're known for their thick and greasy ramen with really yummy pork slices. You can ask for less/more salt/fat; I always ask for less fat to decrease chances of a food coma during work :P

As for Mountain View, I'm actually not a fan of Ryowa, but my other favorite ramen place is Maru Ichi down the street. I wish I could go there more often, but Halu's a lot closer for me. But when I get the chance, I go to Maru Ichi and finish it off with some gelato from Gelato Classico.

Argh, I'm getting hungry...

I haven't been to the Metreon IMAX for years, but two times I went, there were technical issues, too. First time was watching Fantasia 2000 with my then-just-a-friend-but-now-fiance, and the movie stopped working in the middle. They herded everyone outside, and I remember we were both shivering out outside in the cold, thinking how incredibly awkward it was that there were all these couples around us cuddling to stay warm. They eventually fixed it, finished the film, and gave everyone comp tickets.

Next time I went there, using the comp tickets I got, we watched Lion King on the IMAX. The showing bit the dust like 3/4 through the film, and this showing never got fixed. I remember it ended where it looked like Scar had won, and I hoped all the kids watching had seen the movie already or else they'd be traumatized. We got comp tickets for this too.

I checked out one of the midnight showings of The Dark Knight at a local theater. It was PACKED, and I was hella tired all day at work today. (So was one of my coworkers who actually drove all the way from San Jose to SF to check out the midnight showing at the IMAX.) But it was definitely worth it.

Need something to do this weekend? Head down to San Jose and check out California Extreme: "Classic Arcade Games Show."

Website can be viewed here: http://www.caextreme.com/

I went to this a few years ago and had a WONDERFUL time. Basically, this is open this Saturday and Sunday all day and for a fee, you can play EVERYTHING on the floor for FREE.

The highlight for me would be a playable Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix (in High Definition!)

Also for fans of pinball, there will be a TON of pinball games set on free play as well.

If anything, I'm hoping on going and maybe seeing a few CAGers there. :D

No, it's just that there are no CYES (California Youth Energy Services) sites in San Francisco. Maybe next summer the program would expand to cover that city.

Whoa, never heard of this. I may have to check it out. Anyone else planning on going?

And freeky, I'll take a look at the CYES thing. I repalced most of my bulbs with CFLs already, but who knows, maybe I need a... sink aerator?!
