Brand New Hillsdale Block

Nikhil and Keegan

There is a brand new wing at Hillsdale shopping center in San Mateo. We checked it out and here is our review:


Cinepolis is a luxury movie theatre company. Their headquarters is in Morelia, Mexico. It is about $15 for a seat and they have great food. They have reclinable seats and they have small tables that are right next to your seat. The menu consists of many different foods and beverages. If you pay extra you can get Screen-X, which is when the movie is partially projected on the side of the theatre for parts of the movie. With all of these different features we had to try it. Overall we got a stylish and chill vibe.

Pinstripes is a place to go for friends and family to have fun. You can go bowling, play bocce ball, and have food. They are located all around the country. You can book a private event for bowling or bocce ball. They have flatbreads, sandwiches, burgers, and many beverages.
You can reserve the entire place or a just a few lanes. They have a high rating on yelp. Enjoy their made-from-scratch American Italian cuisine, along with a Sunday brunch they have many dining options.

West Elm

West Elm is a modern furniture store. They were founded in 2001 in San Francisco but their Headquarters is in Brooklyn, New York. They sell things from lamps to plates they have everything. They do not have home appliances, furniture and decor pieces. They also have an online store, and you can find good deals online.

The new Apple is store is huge. They have a much bigger store than the last one. They also have a new large LED screen. They have classes for kids, where they teach you about many things related to technology. For example they show you how to make a video, but with the best quality. Or you can go to a class to learn about all of the features of Iphone photography. You can also learn about coding, art on a device, and music skills.
