Changes to First Wed -- per the PDA site, " We have decided to no longer serve beer and wine during 1st Wednesdays. Instead we will turn the parking lot located at 530 Main Street into our family and pet friendly Entertainment Garden!"
OK, I can see the need to tone done the drunken party thing with the beer and wine. But do you really need to encourage even MORE people to bring their dogs downtown on those crowded and hot streets? Really? It's nearly impossible to walk down there already with all of the dogs on and off leash. Is Pleasanton so dogcentric that no one can go ANYWHERE without little Fido?
One more reason to stay home on Wednesdays this summer. And remember, if the health department sees a dog (or even a photo of a dog) within 20 feet of the farmer's market booths you can say goodbye to the farmer's market too.
Come on people, leave the dogs at home where they belong!
