Grab your coffee or tea from your favorite downtown cafe and take a stroll through Downtown Livermore to see this years’ beautiful “Tree Sweaters”. These handmade sweaters that are knit to every tree will be up until Friday, November 18th, before being donated to the Valley Humane Society of Pleasanton as comforting blankets.  You can find these cozy trees along First Street between Maple and L Street. Bothwell Arts Center sponsors the Tree Sweaters each Fall.

This seems to be the biggest challenge that we face when dining out. I am here to tell you that it does not have to be that way, and I’d like to show you how. Read More

Let’s take a look at what our Livermore Valley vineyards looked like through 2017 with photos from Merridith Robertson. Read More
