If you were looking for one more reason to visit Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley area, we are delighted to raise a glass and a cheer for the Tri-Valley Beer Trail, a special collection of deals and discounts from the area’s best taprooms, alehouses, and breweries.
Sign up for a digital passport with your phone or tablet, and you will be set to visit all participating breweries and other locations throughout the Tri-Valley. There are discounts and deals at each and every one of the stops. The trail is in partnership with Visit Tri-Valley, which shares numerous tips for visitors to the Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, and Danville that comprise the Tri-Valley.
Of course, that’s not the only thing happening this fall in Pleasanton and nearby.
Drive-in movies at the Alameda County Fairgrounds continue this month – just a few minutes away from the Rose Hotel along with a host of other drive-in events at the grounds from food trucks to comedy to the annual haunted fairgrounds. The fairgrounds have been transformed for the 9th annual Pirates of Emerson haunting that will be a drive-through event this year. It runs every weekend of October with the finale on Nov. 1
For a relaxing evening with a glass of wine, try the Vineyard Vibes, a free, virtual concert series with local musicians that takes place Sundays. You will need to register for these to gain access to the broadcast and look for the “tip jar” during the performances to donate to the musicians.
And fear not, the annual Pleasanton Ghost Walk starts on Oct. 16 and continues through Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 31. Hosted for many years by Museum on Main, organizers have moved the event to Zoom this year. Two ghosts will be live on the virtual network to serve as guides to Pleasanton’s most haunted downtown locations. It’s a family-friendly tour and tickets are $15 per screening. After purchase an emailed link will be sent for viewing the tour.
Another long-time regional favorite is Witches Night Out, set for 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14 in Livermore. The event has been revamped this year, but still features shopping and dinner with your favorite group of like-minded “witches.” Participants choose a restaurant online and book a table at $10 per person (which is donated to the Livermore Downtown Inc. fundraiser); dinner, drinks, shopping is not included in the ticket donation.
For our athletic-minded visitors, there is the Livermore Bikes and Brews, an annual event that helps raise money for bikes for kids who don’t have one. This year’s ten-mile ride is on Oct. 17 and will run from downtown Livermore and end at Pennyweight Craft Brewing.
While the weather’s still pleasant, Weekends on Main has been extended until Nov. 1 in downtown Pleasanton. Our team here at the Rose Hotel will be happy to tell you about our local downtown restaurants and give you the inside scoop on shopping in Pleasanton. Book a stay under our Deluxe King special, which includes a luxurious continental breakfast and a bottle of wine to make the evening truly memorable.
