Peninsula Y.M.C.A., 240 El Camino Real, San Mateo, CA

San Mateo Times, January 16, 1965

The Jug Band definitely played a few other places, such as The Off Stage in San Jose, but one of their last gigs was at a  "Hootenanny" at the Peninsula YMCA in Redwood City, on January 16, 1965 (there is a chance they played one final gig a few weeks later at College Of San Mateo). Redwood City was a few miles up the road on El Camino Real, the main "Strip" of the South Bay Peninsula.(1)

Today it's a parking lot for Santa Inez Apartments and Villas, an affordable apartment complex.(2)
