Preparing for SuperBowl 50

29 Jan

football-trafficDespite the Patriots having lost a close one last week, we have no choice but to care about Super Bowl 50, coming up on Sunday, Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in nearby Santa Clara.  Along with the thousands of visitors coming to the Bay Area, we expect there will be more than a few staying here in Palo Alto.  $2,000 to $5,000 per night rentals still available on AirBnB!  (In fact, make us an offer on our cottage!!) And to add to the hubbub, we are told one of the NFL teams will be having closed practice sessions at Stanford University next week leading up to the event.  So besides being busy packing away the Pats flag, t-shirts, sweatshirt and scarf for the season, we will need to remind the kids to look both ways for crazy football fans, and team buses.  Here’s to looking out for traffic, and forward to next season.
