Grade-School Enemies Fall In Love & Marry at The Argonaut Hotel

They met on the playground, reconnected via the Internet and tied the knot at the Argonaut Hotel.

When she was in the third grade, Alyson Yeck of Tracy used to dread walking by the seventh graders before school because Jeff Costa would harass her unmercifully. Finally, after she’d had enough, she told him off to the best of her 9-year-old ability.

Little did she know she’d just sassed her future husband.

Years passed, families moved, and the playground adversaries lost touch. Imagine the now adult Alyson’s surprise when Jeff messaged her via MySpace asking if she remembered him. Her answer: “Of course!”

7 Very Virgin America Reasons to Love SFO's New Terminal 2

WIRED magazine once called Virgin America planes "multi-million dollar iPods that fly" -- a comparison that's even more appropriate now that the hometown airline of Apple-lovin' San Francisco has moved into SFO's Terminal 2. Virgin America will occupy seven gates at T2 (which has its opening ceremony this weekend) and collaborated closely with Gensler and Turner Construction on the design and concept from the early stages. Virgin America's always been a cut above the rest in tech-friendliness, sustainable practices (their planes are 25% more fuel efficient than others in the sky) and food services, experiences they have extended from plane to terminal in the new T2. Here are 7 Very Virgin America Reasons to Love SFO's Terminal 2.
