Bridge RustFest II
(Mountainview, CA, Oct. 19, 1996)

Your Host - fontainebleau

Pre-Fest Notice

The Fest Call was put out by fontainebleau....

For consideration...

Yesterday a few of us went on reconnaissance in the Shoreline area. We investigated Shoreline Park next to the Amphitheater and the Sports Page bar about one-third of a mile from the venue on Shoreline Blvd, as potential sites for Saturday afternoon's Fest.

The Park had a golf course and restaurant and was quite open to the bay with somewhat of a breeze/smell coming in. There didn't appear to be any picnic tables or stuff like that, there were about 20 people on skates and a few flying kites. I didn't find it very attractive.

The Sports Page had a lot of TV's all with sports running. They have 17 different beers on draught including Tide House Amber, Widmer Hefewizen, Pete's Wicked Ale, Samuel Adams, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Gordon Biersch Marzen, Molson Golden, Red Hook, Bass Ale, Moosehead, and the Bud's and Coors etc - in addition to 16 different bottled beers.

The Sports Page also serves meals - we checked out their fish and chips which was quite good. There is a patio out back of the bar which is large with plenty of tables etc and 3 pool tables. The barman was quite friendly - he said it was OK if people brought guitars and jammed out in the patio.

Needless to say there is little doubt which I think is the best spot for the fest... the Sports Page gets my vote.

Since no one else seems to be offering any alternative locations for this year's Bridge RustFest let's just say it's at the SportsPage bar on Shoreline Blvd - I suppose a reasonable time to begin festivities would be 2 pm onwards.

The Sports Page may be found on Shoreline Blvd about 1 block east of highway 101 on your left as you drive east. The Amphitheater is about another one-third of a mile east. Probably best to commandeer the seats out in the patio for guitars etc.
