I think you are forgetting about the Lot F&N project and the post office. Big Six would be better to watch.


I guess I can't blame you for forgetting projects since I forgot whatever the hospital board is building and whatever the school district is going to do with the new bond money.

Lots of great memories with my father in law in the 70' and early 80's @ the Velvet Turtle..after work "business meetings" as he called them. Still light my wood burning fireplace(s) with my cache of matchbooks i have from Velvet.


speaking of developements: What is going on with the 225 California (on Highland) office building? Seems like it was completed and nobody moved in.


The Best Burlingame Restaurants for Prom @ 1975 through 1977.
Velvet Turtle, Ernie's,Hyatt and Danny Marino. That Awesome Restaurant at Coyote Point.(I forgot the name.)
In my opinion, the BEST restaurants in Burlingame: both that are gone, were "Café La Scala," and "Left at Albuquerque."

Loved the Velvet Turtle. Salad tossed at your table with Steak au poivre to help soak up your two martini lunch. Not thrilled to see this kind of density at the gateway to our City...think I'll have another martini

Good to read today in the DJ that the Post Office development is moving forward in a direction that all parties involved seem have the same vision for the site.

Also good to read the city backing out of the joint powers authority with CalCHA as CalCHA got out bid on the property. That had disaster written all over it IMO.


Since you knew it was Castaways' you must have gone to "The Lani"A Tiki Bar @ Hillsdale.

It's a done deal:

The Burlingame City Council voted 5-0 during a meeting Monday, Feb. 3, in favor of plans to build the six-story tower at 1095 Rollins Road, where Italian eatery Fattoria e Mare is located.

The decision came after neighbors claimed its construction would mire traffic patterns, congest parking and forever change the nature of their community, according to video of the meeting.

“This project to me is really appalling, because the character of Burlingame is getting destroyed. Our quaint little city, I don’t know what is happening to it,” said Jeanne Malarky, according to video of the meeting.
