Bay seniors are mistaken if they think the only restaurants in town that offer Early Bird Specials are joints like KFC and Wendy’s. In fact there is a long list of reputable places that offer discounts if you are willing to have dinner around 5 pm. You can find a delicious roster of candidates on this site including Chapeau! in the Richmond, Dottie’s Tru Blue in Soma, Harris’ on Van Ness and Chez Papa on Potrero Hill. Another distinct advantage of eating earlier is the much more civilized noise level.
Bay seniors who understand what “curated camping” means will appreciate the offerings suggested at the HipCamp website. Stay in yurts in the Napa Valley. Pitch your tent in the186 acre nature preserve at Woodson Bridge over the Sacramento River or amid the redwood groves at Austin Creek adjacent to the Armstrong State Natural Reserve. The site tips you off to secluded campgrounds along Clear Lake as well as near the lush preserves of Del Valle 10 miles south of Livermore. If you ever considered spelunking in the caves of the Pinnacles, these folks will show you how it’s done. We all know how tough reservations are in these parks. HipCamp will do the job of booking them for you.
Bay seniors who were hypnotized by the color and revelry of the film “Moonsoon Wedding” have a chance to go to one of these wild South Asian affairs – even without an invitation. Non Stop Bhangra holds full-out Indian wedding parties in the City with all the dancing, cuisine and brilliantly colored costumes that is pure Bollywood. Though you just missed this month’s event more are coming up. A ticket to these dazzling productions appear to be available for mere rupees – just $10. The group also offers a whole range of classical Indian music and dance concerts.
