1) In the late 1890’s, Makoto Hagiwara, a Japanese immigrant of San Francisco, invented the modern-day fortune cookie, which he served at the Golden Gate Park’s Tea Garden.
2) The famous sea lions that sunbath off Pier 39 in Fisherman’s Wharf haven’t always been there. A cause that no one’s been able to explain. The sea lions only arrived after the earthquake in 1989. Originally, business owners on the wharf didn’t like the sea lions being there as they were too loud, but now they are a major tourist attraction.
3) Similar to most bridges of the early 20th century, the famous Golden Gate Bridge was originally meant to be black and gold. The bright color came to be as a result of Irving Morrow, the bridge’s consulting architect, noticing the striking, reddish-tinged primer coat that was painted on some of the steel. It took a lot of convincing to get the striking color approved, but Morrow advocated that the bold, red-orange tone would complement the gray fog, golden and green hills, and blue water and sky. He wasn’t wrong.
4) The Silicon Valley U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is located in San Jose City Hall, and San Jose is one of the metro areas with the highest number of patents per capita.
