The Week in Livable Streets Events

This is a funny week for events, trapped between Passover, Easter, Cesar Chavez Day and April Fool’s Day. That being said, there’s some big stuff on the calendar, including a major series of debates on the candidates for the remaining City Council offices, Controller and City Attorney next Monday.

If you want a meal with your purchase, you must prepay for food by noon on the day of the event. To attend, you are required to register, so that we can properly accommodate all guests beforehand. This is proving to be a popular event, so register as soon as possible.
