The Pleasanton Downtown Association is bringing back its Forkful event, a comprehensive culinary tour of downtown restaurants and dessert spots next weekend.
The second annual Forkful will feature eateries showcasing samples of their best treats Saturday evening (Sept. 15). Attendees will take their commemorative fork to savory and sweet stops across downtown, tasting food while sipping on complimentary adult beverages handed out along the way to accentuate the forkful.
"Forkful is sure to be every foodie's dream come true and an evening of culinary delight," PDA officials said. "This unique self-paced tasting experience will allow event guests to stroll through downtown stopping at over 18 participating locations to taste their perfect forkful of food."
A sparkling wine reception will usher in the event at check-in between 3:30-6 p.m. at the Museum on Main, 603 Main St. Forkful tastings run from 4-7 p.m., with attendees able to sample at their leisure and determine their preferred route using the program as a guide.
Participants must be 21 years old or older to take part. The event will be held rain or shine, with no refunds.
