  • Music in the Park kicks off on June 23rd with reggae rockers Katchafire. Blues Traveler performs on July 20th and WAR performs on August 25th.
  • DASH has sadly been scrapped after 20 years of service when BART opens later this year.
  • Dine Downtown restaurant week runs July 7-16 and is expected to include more participants this year.
  • Amazon R&D team Lab126 has leased one of the WeWork floors at 75 E. Santa Clara Street.
  • Signet has moved from Santa Clara to 630 S. First Street in Downtown San Jose.
