A Slice of New York: Pizza and Garlic Knots in Sunnyvale

July 23, 2014 9:02 am

Behind A Slice of New York's casual exterior awaits authentic slices of thin-crust, New-York-style pizza. They've earned a slew of awards, from Metro's Best Pizza of the Silicon Valley in 2013 to the Bay Area A-List's Best Place for a Slice. Most of the accolades are driven by customer votes, which speaks to the loyal following A Slice of New York has among Sunnyvale eaters.

They often praise the thin-crust specialty pies, such as the Coney Island, which is topped with Canadian bacon and pineapple, and the Sutton Place piled with mushrooms and Italian sausage. But they also suggest ordering at least one serving of garlic knots, which are a popular treat from this Sunnyvale pizzeria.

These Hiking Apps Can Help You Explore the Great Outdoors

July 16, 2014 9:01 am

Many people love hiking because it offers an opportunity to get outdoors and leave technology behind, but a number of new smartphone apps aim to make your hiking experience even better. Lace up your boots, grab a canteen, and set out into the wilderness with these great hiking apps.

Discover all of the hiking and biking trails in any given area with the AllTrails app. This app features detailed maps of your area with the national parks and hiking trails marked with pinpoints, and it even provides lists of information about each place. Reviews written by fellow hikers make it even easier to choose the perfect trail for your activity.

Map My Hike
If you’re an avid hiker, keep tracks of each hike you take with the Map My Hike app. Log details like pace, route, distance, and elevation in the convenient log book, and even keep track of the calories you burned if you hike to lose weight.

Walkmeter GPS Pedometer
This app operates just like a pedometer for your smartphone, but it also offers a number of other information as well. Start the GPS when you begin your hike, and the app will provide graphs and charts of your calories, pace, and distance at the end of the trail.
