3 Fun Things to Do in Silicon Valley on a Rainy or Cold Day

With the end of the pandemic just out of reach for Californians, we all collectively need to find new things to do. With rainy and cold weather making outdoor activities near-impossible for the most of us, these four simple indoor plans are sure to satisfy your wants and needs.

1. Get Cannabis Delivered

Redwood City’s first cannabis delivery service, Juva Delivery, provides the peninsula with a contactless way to procure CBD and THC products while abiding by shelter-in-place orders. A number of goods available for same-day delivery, including edibles, THC cartridges, infused sparkling drinks and ready-to-roll packs complete with hemp papers, suit a variety of lifestyles.

2. Make Homemade Pickles

With pickling now a top quarantine hobby—along with jigsaw puzzles and sourdough bread—we asked Preserved, Oakland to provide a recipe that can be made at home. Read the full recipe here.

3. Teleport to Yosemite with Free Solo

Both terrifying and exhilarating, there’s never been a greater athletic feat than the one pulled off by climber Alex Honnold. Climbing Yosemite’s imposing El Capitan's 3,200 vertical feet of rock face without a rope—where one slip means sudden death—is a modern miracle, period. Husband and wife directors Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi documented this adventure with the care it entailed and still managed to weave in a fascinating backstory. It’s one of the best thrillers ever made, and the film, which won an Academy Award for Best Documentary, showcases the finest movie set ever created: Mother Nature.
