Announcing a new Meetup for Walking thru the Valley of Heart's Delight & Hiking Around!
What: History all over the place! (San Jose)
When: August 22,[masked]:15 PM
San Jose City Hall
200 E Santa Clara St San Jose
San Jose, CA 95113
Get some exercise and learn local history. Then enjoy good food at bargain prices, luxuriate in San Jose's majestic California Theater, and relax in a comfortable seat for three hours of the star-laden classic, "Lawrence of Arabia," for international history. Plot summary and synopsis here.
Start at San Jose City Hall for about a two-hour walk at an informative but non-dawdling pace past historic buildings of San Jose.
At 4:30, gather for drinks and an early supper, possibly with a Couchsurfer group, at the Flames Eatery and Bar, 88 South Fourth Street, San Jose. Happy hour runs 3 to 6, seven days a week. Menu of 1/2 price appetizers includes pot stickers, garden vegetable potato skins, teriyaki chicken skewers, fresh basil and mozzarella flat bread pizza, asparagus fries and more. Click here for the restaurant's website.
At 6:30, meet at The California Theater. 345 South First Street, San Jose.
Admission $5 -- worth it just to view this luxurious building -- includes the three-hour movie and popcorn. Click here for photos and info on this dignified landmark.
Obviously, you can participate in any one portion of the event without doing all three. Please make a comment on your RSVP if you do not plan to participate in the entire event. I would like to give the restaurant a heads-up on our party's number.
