Here's to another great community supported Head-Fi event! Things To Do Since you're going to be in the area, I thought I'd mention a favorite South Bay destination of mine. In my opinion, if you'd like to experience the best hand-made glazed donuts in the Bay Area, head directly across the street from the library to Stan's Donut Shop. If you are fortunate enough to try them in the morning when they're freshly made, you are in for a real treat. Just be prepared to get there early before they sell out! Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with Stan's in any way. I'm just a loyal fan of their delicious fried dough. Yum. Survey Question If you had to name only one track, what would be your go-to "demo music" track, and why? IMPRESSIONS THREAD for this meet.
