Love Me Do, Hear, & See October 8th – 14th, 2018This is Halloween,
This is Halloween!
Well, almost. Thankfully, one of the best things about living in California is that summer weather seems to last forever. On the flip side, one of the worst things about living in California is that the summer weather seems to last forever. Why not enjoy the best of the Bay while it’s still warm enough to do so, while also grabbing a little bit of pumpkin love, here and there (I grabbed mine at the Alameda Point Pumpkin Patch just this morning!)
There’s plenty of both end-of-summer and kick-off-to-fall festivities going on this week. Let this be your guide to start the week off right…
Monday October 8th
Food Truck Culture and Temescal BID present: Temescal Nights. Featuring food trucks, music, kid-friendly activities and community! Check it out any Monday evening this month, but be aware that October marks the last month in the Temescal Nights series…until next summer, at least. Join in on the fun from 5-8pm at Kasper's Plaza.
