We Didn't See Any Cats, However

Running an errand in the South Bay, we stopped for lunch in tony Los Gatos. As in other Bay Area towns, Los Gatos real estate prices are exploding because of the Silicon Valley tech boom; Netflix is headquartered here. On Monday afternoon traffic was heavy on narrow roads that were designed half a century ago.

We had a juicy burger and pungent garlic fries at the Super Duper Burger on Los Gatos Blvd.

The small chain was celebrating its sixth birthday. It posted a sign that said there were "free" burgers from 3-4 p.m. We returned at the appointed hour.
  • We're not too proud to admit that a free hamburger will draw us out.
  • Surely there wouldn't be a line in the the 33rd wealthiest city in the United States.
  • We were wrong.

    Note: Los Gatos ("the cats") is named for the cougars and bobcats that once roamed the area. We didn't see any cats, however.
