It's 1st Wednesday in Pleasanton's downtown tonight

Live music, local art, farmers' market among activities

Downtown Pleasanton's "Jump into Summer" themed 1st Wednesday Street Party kicks off at 6 p.m. tonight with live music, local art and a farmers market.

Growers from the Pacific Coast Farmers' Market Association will offer fresh produce and other food items on St. Mary Street during the monthly street fair from 6-9 p.m.

Livermore's Fenestra Winery, Concannon Vineyard and Enoteca Five will be serving wine to guests 21 and older in the all-new wine garden located at 530 Main St. All three wineries have been awarded by the Alameda County Wine Competition, which sponsors the new garden.

Pleasanton's Handles Gastropub will be a guest brewery this month serving its Bouquet Blonde and Alisal Pale Ale, according to the Pleasanton Downtown Association, which hosts 1st Wednesdays.

Food Truck Mafia is set to bring five new food trucks to the event, including Big City Country Boy offering American classics and barbecue, Out of the Cave for Paleo lovers, Hongry Kong serving up Asian cuisine, Kona shaved ice and Southern Comfort Kitchen offering New Orleans-style dishes.

The Artblock display on West Angela Street will feature works from Foothill High School students including paintings, sculptures and jewelry. The students will also be on-site to showcase and discuss their work, organizers said.

Live performances will take place throughout the entire festival with Steel Rose playing country tunes at the entertainment garden, solo artist Eric Rozran at Artblock, John Brazell at the farmers market and the Garage Band Academy playing on South Main Street near the Veterans Memorial Building.

Last month, I was crushed to not have 'Sonoma' chicken on a stick...the best anywhere!!! Which is why since First Wed started they had the longest lines from 6 - 9, every month, every year, for almost 2 decades. I'll pass on the much too common 'truck' thing. I want those BBQ grills and overloaded sticks. THAT is what brought me last month...haven't decided about tonight, since I won't get my usual day-after lunch.
