Happy Hump Day Y’all

PLEASANTON

By Zoe Marshall

Where: Pleasanton.
When: First Wednesday of every month throughout summer.
Don’t be afraid of: Crowds and adorable puppies.
Cash factor: Trends light to moderate (depending on which bars/restaurants you may stop by).

It’s that time of year again. Through August, First Wednesday is one of the most exciting places to be. On the first Wednesday of every month, quaint downtown Pleasanton is blocked off and transformed into fun-filled street party from 4:30-10:00 p.m. With a variety of food booths set up throughout Main Street, you have a lot of choices.

Then, head over to the beer garden. This will give you a chance to find out if your date likes Hefeweizens IPAs. We all know beer choices speak to the compatibility of two people. So, here’s your chance to find out. You can also stop by one of the packed and happening spots, such as Handles Gastropub, where you can enjoy delicious fish tacos on the patio in the warm night breeze. Or maybe Alberto’s Cantina for a refreshing blended margarita.

You could even brave Redcoats British Pub (don’t let the name fool you- it transforms late at night to a dance club) if your date loves shots and extremely loud club music. Hey, at least you’d get to check out her dance moves. It’s important to find out if this girl is more of a Britney Spears or Elaine from Seinfeld.
