Sizzling Saturdays extended through September
Popular merchant, restaurant specials drawing hundreds to downtown Pleasanton
Sizzling Saturdays, the Pleasanton Downtown Association's summer program of special hours and offers, was so popular during the so-called "dog days" of August that they've been extended through Saturday, Sept. 29.
Hundreds jammed downtown streets for the merchant and restaurant specials, along with late bight shopping, last month, said Kelley Foulk, events and communications coordinator for the PDA.
"School may be back in session, but summer is not over yet," she said, looking at the forecasts for more 80 degrees -- and even 90 degrees -- this month. "So all of us can enjoy the twinkling summer lights and music in the air while dining, shopping and strolling in Pleasanton's downtown every Saturday night in September from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m."
Sizzling Saturdays will once again feature free entertainment on Main Street, including live music and family-friendly performers.
A highlight of last Saturday's downtown events was the official grand reopening of Domus, the kitchen and home accessories store at 652 Main St. Several hundreds joined owner Margaret Smith for festivities at the store that included a ceremony sponsored by the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce, with Smith and Pleasanton Mayor Jennifer Hosterman cutting the obligatory grand opening ribbon.
