Golden Gate Gyro


Mixed Gyro

A food truck from Concord that serves gyros? You got to be kidding me. Where do people come up with a food truck that makes amazing gyros? Golden Gate Gyro is the truck that serves amazing gyro in the 925 area code.

I discover this small trailer at a Off the Grid market in Pittsburg 2017. I seen it at Off the Grid in Pleasant Hill, and Taste of the World in Walnut Creek and Orinda. I never tried them out until recently. I heard from other food vendors that Golden Gate Gyro has the best gyros compare to other food truck, GyroStop.

I had the Mixed Gyro (Chicken and Lamb). I have to say this gyro was amazing. I just love how good my gyro was plus it was huge with lots of sauce which was alright with me. Luckily I did not make a mess while eating it.

I read their review on Yelp which was fantastic. Rarely anyone who ha their food gave the trailer a bad review. If they did give the trailer a bad review then they should have them again.

Golden Gate Gyro surely got a chance to be a successful food truck in the Bay Area. If you see them at Off the Grid, Taste of the World or Food Truck Mafia have them for lunch or dinner.

Friday Night Was Totally Alright

After spending a lot of Fridays home doing nothing I finally got out of the house to go to two different places. It was worth going to two places in one night because I enjoy the drive and also that there was not traffic on the freeway on the places I was heading to.

Oakland Museum of California and Off the Grid


I has been since October 2017 that I been to Oakland Museum of California. The main reason why I have not gone for the last few Fridays was that I got tired of attending the museum where I end up seeing the same exhibit every single Friday. I been getting easily bored attending the museum if there is not a new exhibit every week. There is live music with bands performing but if I want to go tour around the museum I do not want to see the exact same exhibit that I seen the previous Friday.

Another reason why I have not attended the Oakland Museum of California was that Ceviche & Co. is not during the Winter season with Off the Grid. The food truck is taking a break during the Winter season due to their market being slow. The Winter season with Off the Grid is slow due to the cold weather and less people wanting to attend the market. The Oakland Museum does get a lot of people attending every Friday Night but the other markets that Off the Grid does they do not attract people.

I went to the Oakland Museum of California because I thought the Sweet Spot was going to be there. Apparently the Sweet Spot already had an event in Sacramento which they could not back out of so they cancel their appearance at the museum. Luckily Senor Sisig and J-Shack were outside the museum.

I been eating Señor Sisig ever since I was a student at San Francisco State University in 2012. I been following their food truck when they started doing a market with Off the Grid in Serremonte in 2013. I eat their food truck whenever I get a chance to not wait in a long line. People love eating their food which causes a long line at the Serremonte, Upper Haight, Fort Mason, Lake Merritt, and Alameda market. Their food can easily make you full.

I love eating J-Shack. Their dessert crepe is amazing! It is worth trying if you see the dessert truck anywhere in the Bay Area. I first saw this dessert truck at Off the Grid Milbrae in 2014. Each time I see them at Off the Grid I would have them. They are really hard to find due to them only doing limited Off the Grid market.

Lily Holbrook performing at Hotel Utah Saloon


Her first performance in 2018 and Lily Holbrook had an amazing performance at Hotel Utah Saloon. I was in the crowd right in front of her taking a lot of pictures. You can say that I actually had front row standing at her performance. As the photographer that I am I just been taking as much good photos of Lily, transferring the picture onto my Samsung Galaxy S7, and uploading them onto Facebook and Instagram. I was applauding and uploading pictures at the same time which is such a huge multitasking duty. The only thing that I really did not do during her performance was moving around getting every different angle of her while she was performing. There was an upstair view that I could had taken full advantage of but I did not want to get an awkward angle of her while she was singing and also not to disturb the audience that was watching her performing.

I love every song that Lily was singing. She had a new song that she sang for the first time including a Cranberries classic “Zombie”. As always in every Lily Holbrook performance that I have gone to I am giving her a 10 with an A+ grade. It was worth the drive to San Francisco and paying $.50 every 30 minutes before 10pm for parking.

I left after Lily was done with her performance. I was trying to avoid the loud performance of District 8 and LikeILoveYou. Lately I been bother by loud music which had cause me to wake up the next day with loud drumming in my ear. I was trying not to let Lily down by leaving after she was done with her performance and I felt really guilty for leaving right away but lately with loud performance I have gone to I just can not risk having loud drumming in my ear. I should invest in earplugs whenever I go to a loud music performance.


I want to keep on going out Friday Night. I need to find events that are occurring in the Bay Area in which I can bring my camera so I can take great pictures. I want to continue doing photography when I got the free time. It makes me feel happy on what I am doing. I am still going to go to any performance that Lily Holbrook has and Oakland Museum of California will have great performance and exhibits. I want to stay active as much as I can while I am still able to walk. Life is too short not to take advantage of what is out there.

Supporting Women’s March

I support the Women’s March because I believe these women have the right to speak. I have seen plenty of women not being allowed to speak because they were told to be silence by men. I just think it is wrong for a man to get away with crime. Women been hurt by men throughout a long time. Celebrities like Tina Turner, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, and other women were hurt by abuse and sexual harassment. I think the abuse toward women should stop. No women should be hurt.

I was impress that the Women’s March occur again this year. Celebrities like Natalie Portman spoke at the march. I am hopefully it will be a yearly event that will keep on occurring in our lifetime. It should still go on after Donald Trump is done being President of the United States. Hopefully more women will speak out during the march if it occur yearly.

2018 the year for me

I been keeping it low lately. I just have not done much due to nothing going on in the Bay Area. With the cold weather I am trying to prevent from being outside. Heck I even been avoiding Off the Grid.

What do I have plan for 2018? I been applying for jobs. I want to work at a different place where I can grow within the company and be successful. I feel like my current job I have done what I can do and I am not going anywhere within the company. I need a job that will keep me busy and that it is well paid with benefits. I am pushing myself daily on finding a job that fits me. I do have plenty of skills which I feel that companies that I apply for do not see in me. I just need to prove them that I am the right person for the job. Just hopefully someone will hire me.


When is the next photo that I will be doing? I do plan to see Planet Loop at Off the Grid El Cerrito January 24th. I been following their music since January 2014. I have attended their shows in the Bay Area.

Another photo that I am expecting to take a picture of is Lily Holbrook. Her next performance in going to be at Hotel Utah Saloon in San Francisco January 26th. I truly want to watch her perform but my only problem is finding parking nearby. The only parking I know is at Safeway which is four blocks away from the place. I am willing to pay for parking and walk to Hotel Utah Saloon. Lily is the best photo that I have ever taken.

Let hope 2018 will be great to me.

Busy Lazy Life

What have I been up to? Would you believe that I been very busy that I forget to update my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, WordPress, and Blogger? I would say that I am making excuses and I am just too lazy to do anything.

I am still involve with Ceviche & Co with their Facebook page. I just put up the schedule on where the food truck will be at. I even added photos of the food.

I been applying for jobs and hopefully landing a job. I do want to leave Sam’s Club and find a better job that pays well. I got 11 years’ experience at Sam’s Club and I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from San Francisco State University. I feel it is time to move onto better things in life.

That is what been going on with me. I will try my best to update what been going on with me.
