Woody the Fish.

Woody the Fish

Woody, a silver salmon carved from a single log, sits on the edge of the parking lot of Buck's Restaurant in Woodside. The restaurant itself is worth a visit, packed from door to door and floor to ceiling with a mix of curiosities too numerous to describe here.

Woodside is in the foothills just above Silicon Valley, and it is said that many an internet sensation has been pitched by its founders to eager venture capitalists in the booths of this establishment. So keep your ears open, you might pick up a good stock tip.

[Alan H. Haeberle, 01/13/2013]

Venture capitalists come and go; Woody lasts. An accompanying plaque states that Woody may be over a hundred years old.
