What is the best way to find housing in the South Bay area?

My husband has a job in Campbell, CA, and we've been looking at Craigslist and Zillow and Realtor.com for places to live. We've already had an attempted scam via CL and I don't want to waste time with other useless sites. Any recommendations? [more inside]

A (vegan) night in San Francisco

I’ve gotta take a quick trip to San Francisco this weekend. I think my Saturday and Sunday are full, but Friday night is still open. So I’ve got one meal to make the most of. What’s the best vegan option for one meal in the area? I’ll be flying in to San Jose, and staying somewhere between there and Santa Cruz, but I’ll have a car and am happy to go anywhere in the area. So where should I go?

Newbie-friendly South SF Bay area tattoo shop recommendations?

OK, so I've been mulling over the notion of getting a tattoo for nearly a decade now, and as of this week I'm finally sure of the design I want. I live in the South San Francisco Bay Area (San Jose/Santa Clara) and am finding myself a bit overwhelmed by all the Yelp reviews, etc., of local tattoo parlors. Specific shop recommendations and/or tips on identifying the most newbie-friendly establishment would be greatly appreciated. [more inside]

Stopover between Tamarindo and Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica

In March we are going to be driving between Tamarindo and Manuel Antonio via 34 along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Google Maps says it's a four hour drive. We would like to break up the drive by stopping for a night somewhere enroute. We are renting houses on the beach at either end so seashore is not a priority. Ideally we'd like some kind of jungle/bamboo/eco hotel. Lots of flora and fauna. [more inside]

SJC to San Francisco travel options...

So, I'm due to travel to San Francisco tomorrow from Toronto, via San Jose. I was planning to get to my hotel in San Fran using Caltrain, but lucky me, my flight's been changed to one later in the evening and I don't think there's any conceivable way I'll be able to catch the last train from Santa Clara. Any tips on how I might be able to get from SJC to SoMa in San Francisco without spending an arm and a leg? [more inside]

Specific resource recommendations for kitten placement in the South Bay Area?

My SO's parents have been hosting a pair of foster kittens since said kittens were born to a feral momcat in their yard on May 26 of this year. They're now old enough to be adopted...but I'm having a terribly hard time figuring out how to help find them homes. I'm in the Bay Area, California (near San Jose) and while there seem to be a number of cat rescue groups, I have no idea how to choose one or go about contacting them. Flurry of kitten-shaped snowflakes within. [more inside]

Where is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas (near San Jose)?

Where are the best places to see Christmas lights in the San Francisco Bay Area? Consistently-extravagant neighborhoods are best, but dedicated displays are okay too. They can be free or pay-to-enter. Bonus points for not being too far from San Jose (by car). Thanks!

Open active amateur repeaters in the Bay Area

I will be traveling to the bay area, San Jose, in December. I am also an amateur radio operator. I have a list of open repeaters but I am wondering if anyone knows which ones are more active that you can just get on and rag chew. Also if there are any good repeaters on the 5 FWY, through Gilroy, and up to San Jose. That is the route I will be taking.
