"Favorite" woudl have to be tailored to the company and the reason for going, but loosely I'd have to say Birk's for business and Fibbar McGhees' with friends. Often at TL Beergaden lately, esp when in a divey kind of mood, and because it's really close to my work. The "Colorado Blue" lamb burger there is my all-time favorite burger, anywhere.

So, I mention two of the networks. Do a search and contact them right away - I think the location changes so you're going to want to know when the next event is. Let me know how you like it--these seem really pretty cool, as it's tough to move in anywhere and feel like you're a part of the crowd. Good luck!

Horrified to see how many of these places have TVs.  Any self respecting engineer in Eng;and would turn around at the door and go somewhere else where they could actually hold a conversation.  A few of the list look good though.

To your "no longer with us," I'd add the old Old Pro at the corner of Page Mill and El Camino, in the old Quonset hut. In my early early days at EE Times I went out with one of our editors, Bob Blissmer, who was moving to an exotic atoll some where, and we whiled the night away there, drinking lots of beer and shooting lots of pool. I remember Bob as being outstanding at both. 

 

Great list, Carolyn!

Hey Brian, When I read your post, I thought of one more. It wasn't really a place for engineers so much, but do you remember the old Tiki place on Steven's Creek, near Merrill Lynch (or maybe Merrill is built on the old site) and Lawrence Expressway. I loved the chairs.... I never got to the Old Pro.....How did I miss it?

Sometimes it's good to plan to be in a noisy place instead of having conversation. There's something (or two or three) for everyone here. So are you saying U.S. engineers don't respect themselvs as much as their counterparts across the pond? Hmmmm. What do you all have to say about that?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
