#ThrowbackThursday When the Burlingame String Orchestra Toured

For the Peninsula, especially for Burlingame in 1958, this was no small event. The Burlingame High School String Orchestra had been given the ultimate compliment. This was the only student musical group in the United States to receive an invitation in August to perform at the Brussels World’s Fair in Belgium. U.S. State Department officials had chosen the orchestra especially carefully. The group had been formed in 1953 by 44-year-old Lawrence Short, a native of Sweden. Since then, the young musicians, ranging in age from 13 to 17, had consistently won the highest possible ratings at the Northern California Music Festival competitions. They walked away with first-place awards in 1955, 1956, 1957 and 1958. More

Burlingame Rodeo

Burlingame sprouted to life on the near perfect spring weekend that hosted the town’s annual Rodeo Days celebration on May 20 and 21. The amount of activities and community member attendance both increased greatly from recent years. “There has been a tremendous improvement,” said David Prescott, a member of the Burlingame Saddle Club and President of the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce. Prescott assisted in who contributed planning events for the weekend. “The reason (for the improvement) is the working together of the strong group of people in Burlingame.” Rodeo Days kicked off Friday evening with the first night of the rodeo. On Saturday, the true celebration began with a day full of activities for those of all ages. Around 40 vendors, who sold everything from food to clothing to knick-knacks, lined a one-block section of Santa Fe Ave., Burlingame’s main street. Inflatables, mini-train rides, a book sale and a quilt show were also packed along the street. “Many of the vendors said they wanted to come back next year,” said Mark Hecht, who helped organize the Rodeo Days events. “We are building on the event for next year. Overall, this year was an awesome day thanks to the full participation from the community.” More *************************************************************************************************

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.)
