Five Wounds neighborhood yesterday, my friend and I discovered a tamale factory on S. 28th St. We went into the lobby and noticed a small window (closed), a menu and a button to ring for service. It was still pretty early in the morning for tamales so I went back today. Turns out El Azteca Mexican Foods is celebrating 50 years of being in the tamale business.
I served everything with the tasty chile relleno sauce for an extraordinary lunch.

He died recently but his company lives on. Thousands of bicyclists gathered last night at the Phil Wood Company before heading out on their ride. Tours of the company were available and while I never thought machine shops were anything I could get into, I ended up loving the tour.
Phil Wood hubs are gorgeous and the design and manufacturing process was fascinating. I had no idea San Jose was home to this very special company.

People leaving the city council meeting tonight
Tonight I attended a city council meeting during which the council voted to certify the environmental impact report concerning a major league baseball stadium in downtown San Jose. I have been an A's fan for about 28 years, ever since my oldest daughter started earning A's tickets by reading books for the A's reading incentive program. Tonight the council heard many people speak on concerns about noise, parking, traffic and more. But the council never lost sight of the immeasurable positive impact a major league baseball team can have on a city. Go A's!
