Nachoria, A New Burlingame Restaurant Devoted to Nachos

Burlingame has a new restaurant, but it’s not just any old restaurant. Meet Nachoria, which opened on January 6, a restaurant that’s devoted almost entirlely to — you guessed it — nachos. While a nacho-inspired restaurant might sound a bit over-the-top, it stems from the mind of Nick Swinmurn, who back in the late 1990s had another far-out idea — to create an online shoe and clothing shopping service that became known as Zappos.

Burlingame Museum of Banned Toys - Has Your Fave Been Banned

Scented crayons for children. Someone at Crayola had that bright idea some decades ago -- until kids started munching on the candy-colored sticks. And then there's Clackers, two balls on a string that crash together. Kids thought it was fun -- until the balls smashed like shrapnel when used as directed. And let's not forget the Atomic Energy Lab for kids -- with materials that turned out to be actually radioactive. All are banned (or recalled) toys. And all are on display at The Banned Toys Museum in Burlingame, California (which also includes a Classic Toys and Pez Museum). (For the record, the formal name of the main museum is The Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia; the other two "museums" are more like displays in the main room.) More

Honeysuckle Rose

Say, I have no use for other sweets of any kind Baby since the day you came around But from the start I instantly made up my mind No sweeter sweetness can be found You so sweet, oh Pops! Can't be beat, you mean it! Nothing sweeter ever stood on feet, yes Every honeybee fills with jealousy When they see you out with me I don't blame them goodness knows Honeysuckle rose When you're passin' by flowers droop and sigh And I know the reason why You're much sweeter goodness knows Honeysuckle rose Say Pop say, don't buy sugar You just have to touch my cup You're my sugar It's sweet when you stir it up Said, when I'm taking sips from your tasty lips Seems the honey fairly drips You're confection goodness knows Honeysuckle rose
