It’s Fleet Week here in San Francisco, which is a pretty big deal. The City is going to be packed so either leave early to beat the crowds or take public transportation into the City. If you’re into ships or the Blue Angels or if you just like supporting our military, you should go and thank some soldiers. All events run through Tuesday, see the full schedule here.
Join in the celebration at the Spirit of Japantown festival, in San Jose. This is the year of the Dragon so the party is sure to be fierce!

Another small town event that I am so sad I’m missing is the HUGE Garage Sale in Los Gatos this Saturday. The entire town is participating in the event and I know there are treasures to be found. Los Gatos has a great reputation for all things classic, trendy and classy- so I’m sure you wont leave empty handed if you go!
