“New Joe’s” became the first restaurant in San Francisco to do exhibition cooking where food was prepared in full view of the customers. The partners at “New Joe’s” had a falling out, Louis J. Rocca insisted he was “The Original” so he called the new restaurant “Original Joe’s.” Descended from the first Original Joe’s founded in 1937, the San Jose location was established in 1956 by the Rocca Family. Original Joe's restaurant in San Jose, California has been the cornerstone of an ever-changing Silicon Valley.

Harley Farms is a restored 1910 dairy farm, with 200 alpine goats on nine acres of pasture in Pescadero, California. The farm grew from six pet goats to today's herd, with their delicious, critically-acclaimed cheese. In 2011 we bought neighboring fields, a historic barn, and a hidden orchard and overgrown garden which we are restoring gently. The Harley Farms chevre, fromage blanc, ricotta and feta cheeses have been consistent winners at the American Cheese Society awards, and hold two international World Cheese Show medals.

Entertainment & Activities
The Sharks' best-known tradition is their pre-game entrance scene. At the beginning of each Sharks home game, the lights go down and a 17-foot open shark mouth is lowered from the rafters. As the mouth is lowered the eyes flash red and fog pours out. Then, a live view of the locker room tunnel with Sharks players is shown on the scoreboard and the goalie leads the team out of the locker room, through the mouth, and onto the ice. The Sharks currently use "Seek & Destroy" by Metallica as their entrance song. Any time the Sharks go on the power play, the Jaws theme song is played while the fans do "The Chomp," extending their arms in front and moving them up and down to form a chomping jaw.

Arts & Culture
In 1969—during an era of peace, love, and tie-dye culture—a small group of San Jose citizens gathered together to transform the beautiful old library (threatened with demolition) into a fledgling art gallery. The democratic, grassroots spirit of this community movement has forever shaped the character of the San Jose Museum of Art, which remains dedicated to inclusivity, new thinking, and visionary ideals. In contrast to older museums often founded upon the riches of a few patrons, the soul of the SJMA reflects the hard work and civic pride of multitudes of supporters and volunteers over the years—of its public.
