Round Table Pizza closes its Main Street parking lot to downtown shoppers

Warns motorists it is recording license plate numbers and will tow vehicles if they're parked there again

Bah! Humbug!

That was the message operators of Round Table Pizza Restaurant left on the windshields of cars parked in its lot on Main Street when shoppers at downtown stores, diners at (presumably other) nearby restaurants and pedestrians parked their cars in the specious Round Table Pizza parking lot this weekend. Round Table Pizza owns most of the lot and wants only those using its restaurant to park there.

Even so, hundreds turned out Saturday for Farmers Market, which on the last Saturday before Thanksgiving is traditionally one of its best days of the year, and then to shop and dine downtown. The crowds made up for a smaller group of shoppers and diners the night before at the annual Magical Holiday Evening event as strong winds and rain moved into Pleasanton.

Yesterday, shoppers walked downtown streets, visited neighborhood shopping centers and filled Stoneridge Shopping Center to check out the scores of decorated stores aglow with twinkle lights, decorative displays and holiday specials.

Downtown, a highlight of the weekend has been the opening of Thriving Ink, a clothing store that has moved from its East Angela Street location to a larger building at 520 Main St., with its historic and distinctive raised wood sidewalk in front.

Also today and in the coming weekends, free horse-drawn carriage rides are being offered at the Museum On Main to carry families back and forth to Pleasanton's new outdoor ice skating rink, which is located between the Civic Center and public library on Old Bernal Avenue.

Also today, patrons of downtown restaurants and stores are also being offered chances to win holiday gift cards.
