We love Santana Row. The restaurants, the shops, the people, the atmosphere. It’s always a place that’s humming with energy, and it’s always a blast to just be there.
It also has a “life-size” chess board, and some chess tables, and is essentially the bay area equivalent of “Washington Square Park” in NYC. Most days, and especially on weekends, you can pick up games there with some really decent players.
Santana row is where Daniel saw a chess board for the first time, and got hooked. It will always hold a special place in our hearts.
