Re: you article about Stoneridge Mall. The paragraph on the Sweetwater Grill closing is written so that it implys that the Cheesecake Factory is also closing. I had 2 people call me to tell me that we could not go to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory because it was closing. I called the restaurant to be sure it was still open - it is!

Cheesecake Factory is alive and well...and is staying as per the bartender I talked to the other night. It's a possibility that BJ's Brewery/Restaurant may replace the Sweetwater Grill (which was way overdue to close)... so the potential is lookin' good for better restaurants!

I rarely shop Stoneridge. The only store that lures me in is Sears -- and that's for a major appliance purchase every few years. Too many P-town Stepford Wives and their plastic kids shopping there for my taste.

Why so bitter The Mall? Sounds like an insecurity issue. I grew up here and by no means are my parents,my children,or myself considered money rich. I shop at Stoneridge and I don't feel like I shop among Stepford Wives and/or plastic kids.
Reflect and know that self love diminishes hatred towards others.

They should update parts of the mall. I would hate for it look like the old one up in Concord area that was finally updated (the one with a smaller movie theater, that might be gone as well). Some people in the tri valley do act like Stepford Wives or plastic kids as you put them- but who cares? The simple thing to do is to ignore them- you don't go to the mall to please or entertain others. If you enjoy people watching like I do, it can make for an entertaining afternoon, but that's not the point. Laugh it off and move on with life. And it's Sweet River Saloon, haha. I remember going there 20 years ago when I was young for my birthday and really had fun. I'll miss that place!!!(Even though the food wasn't the greatest).

Cholo -- Geeze, lighten up. I'm female myself. I'm only calling them as I see them. Not all the women in town deserve to be labeled at "Stepford." But sadly, the majority of them are starting to head in that direction.

Yes I suggest laughing off the annoying people in the mall. If it really gets under your skin that bad, something is off with you. It's useless to get worked up over stuck up people that act "valley-ish". If there is a store in the mall or the same store an hour away, I would suck it up and go to the mall here.

PToWN94566 -- I hit Sears and leave. I'm not a Macy's or Nordstrom kinda gal. But that goes without saying given I'm not "Stepford" either. *LOL* BTW, I would never drive an hour to shop. To be honest with you, shopping is not my religion. I make a lot of my "personal" purchases without ever entering a retail store. Thank God for the Internet!
Shelley -- For some, it's hard to see over those plastic boobs, let alone past them! *LMAO*

I think it's a good idea to get new business in the mall.I guess the guy at the Sweetriver got tired of dateing the managers. So he's moving on to new pastures. Hopefully the new resturant will have much better food. And yes! Pleasanton has snobs you just have to be yourself and ignore them. As for the plastic kids they belong to the Doc that does all the boob jobs.
