"Just for Fun"

For a little tiny Downtown area, this is actually a lot of fun. This is especially surprising given how bland and flat most of the rest of Pleasanton is.

What is there to do here?

First there are the restaurants:
--Barone’s: a seafood joint.
--Sushi Hanabi
--Oasis: a Mediterranean B & G
--Nonni’s bistro
--Chianti’s: An Italian place which is great for dates
--India Garden

Then there are the bars:
--Redcoats Pub
--Main Street Brewery
--Past Time Pool

Then there is the shopping:
--Celebrity Bound

And then there are an assortment of other places. For example, where else can you get fit while learning how to pole dance like you can at Twirly Girls.

Put simply, this is a fun little spot to go on dates and on the weekend. It tends to have a lot of kids and families—if you really want a strong singles scene you do have to go at least up to Oakland, if not the city, but for Pleasanton it is pretty good.
