@CMathas, you wrote:

While this wasn't a contest between the establishments, it's obvious that if Fry's served beer, it would be the place to go.

Well put. When I used to live in the Bay Area, I went to Fry's looking for a source, ANY source, who could talk to me on engineering topics!

Let's not forget Antonio's Nut House, 321 S California Avenue in Palo Alto.  Pool tables, free peanuts, and a stuffed gorilla make this one of the good old hangouts

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?

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?

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!

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
