This is somewhat late, but nonetheless a positive post.
During the weekend of October 9-10, San Carlos High School class of 1965 held their 45th reunion. The reunion planners intentionally scheduled the event to coincide with the festival.
About 30 of us descended upon the city we grew up in many years ago.
Downtown Laurel Street looks pretty much the same with nearly the same facades, but a much improved shopping experience with many nice restaurants and quality merchants. Rather than try to choose a restaurant we elected to lunch on the available “street food”.
Needless to say, some of us would have liked to have a hoagie at MBJ Ranch Room or a hot dog at Pup N’ Hound. Both located on Memory Lane now.
I was pleased to see the business my father started in 1938, San Carlos Pet Hospital is still in the same location and under the same name, albeit totally remodeled at 718 El Camino.
Many of us remembered the Tivoli Theater in the 700 block of Laurel with its indie and foreign films. Prior to the Tivoli, this was the same building Safeway grocery was located
The museum was very interesting and nostalgic. One of the docents showed me a copy of a 1950 phone book with our family name listed. I especially enjoyed taking in the blown up aerial photo of the city taken in 1947.
We had a great weekend and look forward to 2015.
