    Can’t believe the bartender at the Silver Peso left out the fact that Janis Joplin used to shoot pool and drink there when she lived in Larkspur.

    my wife is asking where the Filipino restaurant was in this episode. I saw two half Filipinos a brother and sister, but don’t know what shop/restaurant they were showing. Thanks.

  • Jeanne

    Well done-but next time include the fact that only way to go through Marin County, prior to Highway 101 construction, was through each tiny town.
    Quite a trip!!

    Sorry to see Brian ommitted the biggest draw on weekends during the summers of the 50’s and 60’s. Who could forget the outdoor dances back then. My favorite girl, great music and a warm summer evening, didn’t get any better than that.

    I watched the story you had on San Quentin Museum. I thought that would be a good place to take our Harley Motorcycle group to. I called the number that you have posted on your website Eye on the Bay. I called and the number was disconnected. I called information and was told that there was no place called
    San Quentin Museum. Can you please get me a working phone number or a contact person. I was also going to turn it over to the Boy Scouts and some other groups that would like to see the museum. Thank you
