Anyone aware of any smoke shop delivery near North San Jose?
So there are tons of dispensaries and the city celebrates huge tax numbers. Look at this quote:
> According to San Jose Police Department Division Manager Wendy Sollazzi, tax revenue from cannabis sales is expected to provide the city with $17 million for fiscal year 2020-21
So where can a recreational user smoke cannabis legally in San Jose? The majority of people living in San Jose are renters and do not own their own homes. So that means that the majority of cannabis users will have to have somewhere to legally smoke. Almost all of the apartment buildings and residential rentals are smoke free and they do not allow cannabis to be consumed anywhere on their property. So where can you go? You can't smoke in your car and you can't smoke in public. So what is going on? Is San Jose reaping the benefits of cannabis tax while simultaneously discriminating against its users? It seems like California loves cannabis money but hates cannabis users.

Edit 1: I didn't ask about edibles. Not trying to be a jerk. But I don't like edibles. Not willing to go that direction.
I'm traveling to San Jose for the first time and looking for recommendations for vegan restaurants and local coffee shops. I'll be staying in downtown but can travel to suburbs, since I'll have my car.
Note. I'm looking for 100% vegan restaurants, not non-vegan restaurants that have vegan food as options.
Anyone else in north SJ smelling smoke right now? Smells like a new fire, but having a hard time telling where/what it is.
I hear Shane Co commercial on the radio all the time so perhaps will go there. Just curious to hear others opinions.
Edited: Anyone got their ring at Costco ?
I just found out we have a new plant shop in San Jose! It's called Astraea Foliage, and it has a lot of the highly sought-after, commercially rare plants. I got to see in person many plants I had only seen online before. Unfortunately, it was too expensive for me, but it's the kind of place one might go to if one wanted to treat themselves to something fancy for their birthday. https://www.yelp.com/biz/astraea-foliage-san-jose

A new gamer lounge and entertainment center has leased a big space in downtown San Jose, a deal that is poised to add a unique new vibe to the city’s lively SoFA district.
Guildhouse has leased a building on South First Street in downtown San Jose, filling a space that had been empty since the Forager food, drinks, and event center shut its doors in the wake of coronavirus-linked business shutdowns that began in March 2020.
“We’re excited to be here,” said Kevin Wick, owner of Guildhouse. “I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. It’s something I think that downtown San Jose needs, a new gamer site.”
Guildhouse rented 18,000 square at 420 S. First Street and workers were busy this week preparing the interior of the large space for some soft launches.
“We have a big area for people to just hang out, and we also have a bar and food area, computer games, video games, board games,” Wick said. “Drinks are a big part of this. It’s open seating because we want people to make new friends.”
This sort of activity is needed, in Wick’s view, after more than a year of people avoiding large gatherings and cutting back on being out in public.
“Social everything has been missing since the pandemic,” Wick said. “People want to socialize more, including big nerds like me. We believe a lot of people will be curious about us and want to try our drinks and come in and to check out our space and play some games casually.”
Richard Berg, who leased the space to Guildhouse, said he believes the rental agreement, along with others in the vicinity, point to revived activity in downtown San Jose, including in the South First Area, or SoFA neighborhood.
“The whole SoFA district is really starting to roll, and things are beginning to come back in the downtown overall,” said Berg, a local commercial property owner.
Among the recent signs of heightened activity downtown:
— Doordash has leased 7,000 square feet across the street at 431 S. First St. for a DashMart, which is a new type of convenience store that offers both household essentials and local restaurant favorites for delivery.
— CloudKitchens, a venture led by Uber co-founder Travis Kalanick, is planning a “Downtown Food Hall” where it would accommodate 25 small commercial kitchens in a historic building at 82 through 96 East Santa Clara St.

I'm in the process of franchising a gaming concept out in the Bay Area, but I'm fairly new to the area and wondering what would be the perfect location to open up.
The concept is heavily based on the cafes or arcades in Akihabara in Tokyo, Japan. It will be community-based and will host different interests all under one roof (PC gaming, console gaming, board game tables, figurine builds, theater/karaoke rooms, as well as hot meals, snacks, and drinks).
What neighborhood would you like to see a place like this? I have a preference for the greater San Jose area, but open to surrounding cities as well!
Is there a reason why no one is talking about the massive cloud of smoke rolling into San Jose from the east hills? Within the last hour it's rolled in after looming on the other side of the hills and now when I go outside my throat hurts from the smoke. I can't be the only one experiencing this, anyone else having the same experience or have any information regarding the source of the smoke? As in which fire is pushing this smoke on us?
