Peninsula Press reporters have created a six-part collaborative video project on unique hangout spots in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The videos profile individuals in a character-driven narrative to reveal hidden aspects of these communities.
Why do people return to these places? What makes the environments special? What is something only people “in the know” would understand?
At each of the hangout locations in this series, we’re hoping to reveal what is unique, what the people who hang out there have in common, and what they find most fulfilling.
This video features a mainstay of Palo Alto nightlife. Antonio’s Nuthouse. The biggest draw at this local dive is not the bottomless buckets of peanuts, whose shells litter the floors, nor is it the cheap games of pool or the modern jukebox at the end of the bar. The appeal of the place — popular amongst Stanford students — is in the personality of its most popular bartender Kelley Gorman.
