Remember when spending time with friends didn’t require you to juggle the need for social interaction with the need to remain safe from a deadly virus? A lot has changed over the past year, along with it our sense of what it means to protect ourselves and those who we love. Over a half a year into the pandemic, we are now forced to recognize that this is no longer a passing phase. It feels very much like that childhood game wherein every time you went through a tunnel, you held your breath. If you made it through the tunnel without breathing, you won.
As the coronavirus (and now wildfires) continue to rage on in our great state of California, so does our continuous & endless support for our courageous front line workers who have selflessly put their lives on the line day after day in order to keep our communities safe. It is for this reason, and many others, that we at Nationwide Limousine Service are continuing to offer our rider discount program to San Francisco and Bay Area first responders.
As the battle to contain the novel coronavirus continues to rage on, so too does the struggle for our outstanding medical personnel that are fighting on the front lines. For days, weeks, and months now, these heroic people in the Bay Area and across the United States have been putting their lives in jeopardy in order to protect our loved ones. It is for that exact reason that we at Nationwide Limousine Service would like to offer a new rider discount program for these first responders and workers who never hesitate to keep us safe, even in the face of a global pandemic.
It’s time that even us here at NLS Limo confront the elephant in the room: coronavirus. As everyone is no doubt aware, this is an incredibly serious issue, especially for people of lower income, people with already poor immune systems, and the elderly. In light of the apparent unchecked spread of the virus throughout the continental United States, we wanted to write a post concerning the virus and ways that you can keep both yourself and your community safe throughout this period. Perhaps it seems odd that we are delving into this sort of subject matter, but if you consider what we normally focus on with this blog – transportation to and from large scale public events – it becomes clear that we not only have a right but an obligation to comment on the developments of the virus and things that can be done to help stop the spread.
In one of the more anticipated moments of every San Francisco resident’s summer, the 17th annual Best of San Francisco Magazine is about to hit newsstands. Every year, Modern Luxury puts together a list of the best restaurants, bars, nightclubs, movie theaters, comedians, writers, parks, bookstores, and much more and publishes this list in its Best of San Francisco Magazine. The winners in each category are chosen after a rigorous research period from the magazine, and receiving a Best of San Francisco award is one of the highest levels markers of success that the Bay Area can bestow on any individual or company.
The San Francisco Travel Association was created shortly after the earthquake of 1906. It currently held it’s 107th annual meeting and the focus of the talk was about whether foreign tourists are worried about traveling to our country. San Francisco notched a record for tourist visits in 2016, but there is uncertainty in the local travel industry. This uncertainty comes from fears in the Bay Area community about talking coming from Washington D.C. that might make travelers hesitant to come to the U.S. Regardless of personal politics, this is a very important matter for San Francisco. The numbers show that 25 million tourists came to the city in 2016. Those tourists created nearly 80,000 tourism jobs and generated $10 billion in revenue.
With more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in America, finding the perfect place to eat in San Francisco is a challenge, to say the least. It’s especially overwhelming for tourists who may be visiting the city for the first time, or even the fifth time. When I first experienced this challenge for myself, I turned where I always turn to when I need help – my smartphone. There truly is an app for everything, even finding the perfect place to eat in America’s largest food capital. We’re leaving out the big guys like Yelp, OpenTable, and Foursquare on this one – but that’s not to say reviews on these sites aren’t helpful.
Each year, Californians gather in massive numbers to take part in an event known as “March Bicycle Madness,” an annual fundraising event focused on providing underprivileged children with bicycle helmets for their safety. This year, the Madness descends on Davis, California from Tuesday, March 1st through Friday, April 1st.
As part of a local effort to provide U.S. Military veterans with career help and business advice, the Small Business Development Center will be hosting a 2016 Veterans Business Workshop Series at the Concord America’s Job Center. The workshop sessions will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, starting in March and ending in early April.
