    The usage of Garage became very common after these three. The second one is where Harrison Ford invented Quadracycle. I am not aware of the other two.

    since as you say that the list is connected, i’m going to go for the “Applewood Pizza Chain of Restaurants” (http://www.applewoodpizza.com)as the connection.

    Applewood Pizza
    227 First Street,
    “Los Altos”

    Applewood 2-Go
    989 El Camino Real,
    “Menlo Park”

    Their award winning pizza has also been voted ‘The Best Of’ by the “Palo Alto” Weekly for 15 consecutive years.

    if there is any other connection i can’t possibly think of it. Of course you may have been actually wanting to make us think laterally, and the pizza was only the clue to the actual answer. In which case i’ll go for “Pacman” (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pac-Man) as the answer.
