The Counter - San Jose

A few nights ago I was invited to a farewell dinner for a coworker. We decided to take him to The Counter at Santana Row. When I got there it was only a bit after 6 but the place was already busy. By the time everybody showed up it took us about 15 minutes before we got our table.

Everyone got a paper menu to customize their own burger. Wow..that's exciting and a bit intimidating at the same time. Some of us were trying to take a peek at what the others were ordering.. LOL.

My menu looked like this. It was a bit unconventional. But that's the whole purpose, right ?

Target Summer Pops

I am not sure if this event is held every year. We've been there twice but I didn't remember going there last year. Maybe we just missed it. So it was a good thing that we received a postcard this year with the dates otherwise we would have missed it again.

It's a free outdoor concert at the San Jose State University lawn (by the library). Pack a picnic basket, bring a blanket and head out there. Invite a friend or two so we could all enjoy the free music. Watch for the dates with free ice cream !

This was what I saw when I laid down on the picnic blanket. View of the clock tower.
