Firehouse Brewery, 111 S. Murphy Avenue, Sunnyvale and 1765 E. Bayshore Road, East Palo Alto
Like UFC fights? This is the place to go. The Firehouse was mentioned as a favorite by almost everyone I spoke with. The beer, patio, wood-fired food, and sports are the draw in Sunnyvale, while the same things plus the extra large plasma TV is a draw in Palo Alto.
Great article! If you are over 50, the top of the list is St. James. Mixture of tech workers, Stanford grad students, bikers, and Navy pilots from Moffett Field... Great place! But, the ultimate tech bar was not on the list. Ely McFlys in Cupertino. Next door to Apple (aka Bandley 7) it was where Apple, FourPhase, and the occasional lost HP employees ended up after work, many times during. Inside was decorated to look like a mad scientist lab. Tons of old Microwave equipment glued to the wall. Massive old vacuum tubes used as lighting fixtures. Weird space ships everywhere....or maybe it was the Tequila.
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.
