  •  Anyone there need any San Jose recomendations? (4+ / 0-)

    I used to be in Downtown San Jose all the time so I know it really well if you're looking for good places to eat/ things to do and such.  

    If you have a car I'd absolutely recommend checking out the Winchester Mystery House.  (It's also reachable by bus from the Convention Center but it takes a while).   It was one of my family's go-to places when we had visitors.

    •  Thanks again for helping yesterday! (5+ / 0-)

      Would greatly welcome recommendations for a quick place to grab lunch and some place for dinner (perhaps Mexican).

      The final party tonight is, strangely enough, at the San Jose Giants stadium, so if you have any dinner recommendations in that area as well, that would be great.

        I can't think of many Mexican places I know well off the top of my head.  There's a cheap quick place near SJ State University, Iguanas.  Nothing fancy at all (pretty geared towards a student budget) but I liked them.  I'll see if any of my family members have tried a Mexican place I haven't (since I haven't been back in a few months the odds are good).  

        If you like Thai, House of Siam is one of my go to places Downtown.   We also have a Gordon Biersch there which I like, though it's far from unique to San Jose.  We also have Japan Town pretty close to downtown; if you have a car handy and a little time I'd recommend checking it out if you like Japanese food.

        I haven't been to SJ Giants' Stadium in forever so I don't really remember what's around.  I believe New Indian Cuisine is close by car and I think I've been there and liked them; they at least get good ratings on Yelp.  I'll check with family on this one too.  

        If you make it out to Los Gatos or Campbell I can recommend a number of places in my next of the woods.  Same thing with Mountain View at the other side of the county; when I interned in Assemblymember Fong's office I got to explore a lot of restaurants!
