Funky Foto Contest Week 5

No, I’m not insane. A tad obscure maybe, but not insane. In today’s contest you’ll need to tell me two things…1) What is this? and, 2) Where is this? The where part is most certainly a Foster City landmark. As always, place your answers in the comments below, this weeks winner receives a $30.00 gift certificate to Sweet Basil Thai on Beach Park. I suspect that this week there could be plenty of opportunity for smart alecky comments and, of course, I will publish all of those plus most other frivolous banter and all wrong answers. All of the rules are published both above and on the left margins. The winner and all other right answers will be published on Monday morning. Good luck!
