As game time nears, 49er fever grips Menlo Park
Safeway on El Camino had, among other stuff, balloons and caramel apples decorated as Niner helmets. Baked goods purchased at Angel Heart Cakes were adorned with red and gold 49er colors.
And while Menlo Park’s two longstanding watering holes, the Oasis and the Dutch Goose, focus more on college memorabilia, there is evidence of the NFL team to the north at both. The O has a booth with an inlaid 49er logo, and the Goose has a signed photo of four of the team’s most famous quarterbacks. The question on many minds: Will Alex Smith put a game together that ranks with his predecessors?
