2009 San Mateo Central Park Music Series


In my “Events in June” Blog post I announced the first of the 2009 San Mateo Central Park Music Series Concerts, better known as Music in the Park. I attended most of the concerts last year and the first one for this year, last Thursday (and will be each Thursday from now until the beginning of August). The event was a huge success with easily a thousand attendees. I had a great time with my mom and girlfriend as we listened to funk/disco/80″s music by Disco Funk Crutch. The music and atmosphere was great for people of all ages and backgrounds. Kids rushed the dance floor as the first note was played while parents watched from the side, people socialized with their neighboring concert-goers, foodies shared the best menu items from each booth, and so on.

The food booths were great and operated by such vendors as Astaria Restaurant, Pizza-My-Heart, Pasta Primavera, The Melting Pot, Rave Burger, 3 Bees Coffee, and Pasta Pasta. My family enjoyed some food we brought from home as well as two awesome sandwiches from Astaria”s booth!

Another cool feature was instead online slots of just having garbage cans they had “waste stations” where a volunteer from ReThink Waste would tell you how to properly throw away your trash to reduce waste. I never knew how many things were compostable and according to our nearest ReThink waste volunteer Allied Waste will be no longer our garbage provider in 2010 and a new company will be taking over that will allow us to throw paper items into our green landscape waste boxes which will be composted!

    Hey Bass,

    It is a really great concert; arguably one of the best events in San Mateo. I look forward to it every year.

    There is no better way to spend an afternoon than listening to music in a park.


  7. Elizabeth @ bay area band on January 6th, 2010 12:48 pm

    I love community music programs for a lot of reasons, first and foremost the music. Secondly, it gets people involved and out and about. Thanks for your insights.

    One of the best things about the blogging community is all the things people freely share. Thanks! 😀

  9. Dian@burner covers on January 29th, 2010 3:02 pm

    I love free concerts outdoors. Not only do you get to enjoy the music, you also get a sense of community.

  10. Steve@make your own beats on February 12th, 2010 6:42 pm

    Sounds like a great day… kids and parents, neighbors all socialising. Just like the old days, huh? Nothing like music to bind us together. I’ll try to go this year, I promise!

    I would like to also add…If you are in the market for a piece
    of jewelry you can realize significant savings by waiting
    for the right time of year to buy. Christmas and Valentine’s day are especially busy times of the year for jewelers, and they may be less likely to negotiate during these times of year.

    I do not even understand how I ended up right here, however I assumed this post
    was once great. I don’t realize who you’re however certainly you are going to a famous blogger should you are not already 😉

    My friend works at a doc office. He always tells me.
    .. Don’t run on empty because you need energy in order to work out. If you have a long workout, then you need to replenish your carbohydrates during that time. This can be done with a sports drink, since you are working out and don’t
    have time to stop and eat something.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours lately, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s pretty value enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.

  24. Jacqueline@click here on January 3rd, 2013 1:41 am

    Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone that actually knows what they’re talking about over the internet. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people must read this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular given that you definitely have the gift.

  25. Norris@natural treatment for gallstones on January 3rd, 2013 1:37 pm

    I’m really impressed along with your writing talents as well as with the layout to your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway stay up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to look a great weblog like this one nowadays..

  26. Tammy@Tammy on January 9th, 2013 12:12 am

    Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to produce a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a
    lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    While there are stories out there of people who started businesses with a dollar and a prayer, their success is either unusual
    (which is why they became a big story) or it took much longer than it should have.
    There are times in which email and IM just won’t convey a message, especially when working with others in different time zones, different cultural beliefs and ideals, and different languages. You can find coupons for all of these, if you look.

    Meanwhile, her late mother was a former chairman of the Oklahoma University Foundation as well as one of the first members of
    the state’s ethics commission. Since family daycare homes are run inside of the residence of the provider, they tend to be more flexible with parents who have unpredictable work schedules. Take a look back at your life or if you’re currently living
    with your parents, analyze how you interact in relationships and determine if your actions are analogous to your parent’s relationship.

    Tomb Raider, Mega Moolah, Mermaid’s Millions, and Blackjack are some of the new Android game apps that have been released from Microgaming’s partner, Spin 3.
    So much so that when I went to see the 157 minute movie, the audience
    (every single soul) remained in their seat for quite a while
    after the credits had rolled. Those days are long gone
    with the implementation of smartphones and the fact that
    they are now being developed for the everyday user rather than business professionals only.
