Gas Station Cheeseburgers

“It makes you tough. It builds character.” – Matt Dymmel

Community Squats (Thoughts)

When the 9am Tuesday class commenced we were informed that a member was unable to attend due to their reaction to a “Gas Station Cheeseburger”. This set off a discussion about food, restaurants and recommendations. Please enjoy the following recommendations for Sushi in the area. (In no particular order.)

Kanpai Sushi – Palo Alto – Low key. Friendly. Downtown. Fun house specials. Easily paired with Gelato Classico around the corner for dessert.

Eighty-Eight Sushi – Mountain View – Voted best in the class as family friendly.

Sushi Tomi – Mountain View – Rec’d for good value/quality balance.

Daigo – Palo Alto – Cal Ave Area – VERY small. Pricey. VERY good.

Fuki Sushi – Palo Alto – For the larger, very nice restaurant experience.

Sushirito – Palo Alto – Downtown. Fun. Casual. Who doesn’t love sushi in a burrito?

Sushi Arashi – Mountain View – Castro St. Rec’d for DoorDash delivery. Conveniently accross the street from Gelato Classico!

Safeway Sushi – Local to You. Apparently, I’m not the only one that enjoys some ready-made sushi on the go.

Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life by: Steve Martin

“In the midseventies, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. This book is, in his own words, the story of “why I did stand-up and why I walked away.”

Martin illuminates the sacrifice, discipline, and originality that made him an icon and informs his work to this day. To be this good, to perform so frequently, was isolating and lonely. It took Martin decades to reconnect with his parents and sister, and he tells that story with great tenderness. Martin also paints a portrait of his times-the era of free love and protests against the war in Vietnam, the heady irreverence of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in the late sixties, and the transformative new voice of Saturday Night Live in the seventies.”

Tim’s Takeaway: Be willing to grind and work for a goal that may not show itself until after you’ve started. My kids constantly hear me say what my Dad said to me. “Do what you love. But, if doing what you love doesn’t pay the bills. Then do whatever it takes to do what you love.” This is what I learned and respect about Steve Martin. He put in crazy amounts of work to build his skills that paid off decades later.

Thank you for your support.

I look forward to what we will do together.
