Homestead lanes is a good place to go for bowling. They are rarely overcrowded, so there is usually no wait for lanes. The prices are okay too, particularly if you go during off peak hours. They have cosmic bowling with glow in the dark balls and pins, if you're looking for some extra fun. Overall, the facility is a little bit old, however all the machines and equipment are in good working order.
My music teacher rented out this space to hold recitals and chamber orchestra rehearsals--first the smaller room, and then the larger room as the group grew. The location is nice and there is plenty of parking, but the space itself is kind of small. It was always difficult to set up chairs and things in a comfortable manner. Plus, the acoustics just weren't very good..
World of Music has a good selection of student music. Whenever I was given a list of things to buy from my music teacher, they'd always have it in stock. Furthermore, the salespeople are always willing to assist you to find what you need. In terms of having a broad selection of other types of sheet music, I'm not really familiar with that--however I figure that whatever you can't find there you can just by off the internet?
Arthur Mintz Photography is where all the high school kids would go when they wanted REAL prom pictures--not the ones shot on the boat with cheesy backdrops and shoddy lighting. Their pictures always came out beautiful and classy--who can forget the mandolin pose?--and for only slightly more than the price of the school pictures... (when I was in high school anyway....)
De Anza is a great community college. It has a huge range of classes that are good for both full time and part time students--I especially like their selection of evening classes, it really allowed me to be flexible with my schedule. The professors are qualified and know what they are doing as well! Plus, when all the renovations are finally finished parking and everything should be better than ever!
The Capitol Flea Market is huge!! You can easily spend a whole day here just browsing through all the vendors. Unfortunately, it tends to get a little crowded during the peak times so it might be a good idea to go early or on a weekday when it is open. It is pretty much a San Jose establishment, so even if you're not really into flea markets it is definitely worth going to at least once just to see what it is like.
A $10 haircut is hard to come by these days, and its nice to have a place close by to go when you need a trim. However, in terms of quality I'd just say that they are mediocre... I guess you can't really mess up women's haircuts that much unless you are going for a really special look, but guys haircuts!! All my guy friends who go there to get their hair come out looking the same.
I'd go to the farmers market more often if I could wake up earlier on the weekends--it's best to go there earlier for better selection. They have a wide variety of vegetables and fruits at good prices, as well as people selling fresh herbs, fresh flowers, cheeses, meats, and other random things like natural soap. It's a nice place to go on the weekends, you see a lot of people with their dogs walking around.
This store has a great selection of formal/evening dress, as well as some business wear. I like the fact that they have 0 and 00 sizes, since it is difficult to find a lot of petite stuff in most stores. Whenever I go there, they usually have some sort of sale going on, which is very nice. They usually have cute shoes on sale too, although they are usually in limited sizes. Their service is very good too. Once I was there with a friend, and it was already 10 or 15 minutes past closing time and the salespeople were still helping us find things to try on.
I had to get a drug screening done for my job, and after the first place I went to LOST my sample, I was sent to US Healthworks. I went during lunch on a weekday so it was a little crowded, but I still only had a 15 minute wait. They were very efficient and did everything according to procedure. I was finished in about 30 minutes.
