Macy's Christmas Windows in Union Square


I was passing by Macy's in Union Square in San Francisco and decided to take some pics of the Christmas displays in the windows:









It was nice to see that we with construction around that Macy's did up their windows for the season.

Ghirardelli Warehouse Sale


This one is mainly for the chocolate lovers. One weekend a year (always before Christmas) Ghirardelli Chocolate has a warehouse sale at its factory store in San Leandro. It is a beautiful time if you are a chocolate lover or just looking for a gift for friends or co-workers. The place is packed and the prices are low (plus an additional 15% off at the register) and the product is yummy:








The Ghirardelli Warehouse sale is part of the reason I like the holiday season.

Christmas in the Park 2017


I moseyed over to San Jose to check out this year's edition of Christmas in the Park. Christmas in the Park is a San Jose tradition that takes place in Downtown San Jose and is a free and fun event that has everything to get you into the Christmas Spirit with all the displays and music:

















And even SJ Sharkie (The NHL San Jose Sharks mascot) likes it:


We may not have snow here in the Bay Area but we have Christmas in the Park.

The Sugar Factory-Chocolate Lounge



“Come with me
And you’ll be
In a world of pure imagination”-Those words were sung by Gene Wilder in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. When I was in Las Vegas, I saw a some cool sculptures on the Strip near the Fashion Show Mall. It was a restaurant called The Sugar Factory-Chocolate Lounge. It wasn't open but the outside was really cool:





 





I guess next time I am in Las Vegas, I need to get there when it is open, to enjoy the food.
