November 2011 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:

  • SPUR (the SF Planning & Urban Research Association) is coming to SoFA. They will help in advocacy, education, and research related to urban policies.
  • Downtown Ice is being extended to Jan. 29th, giving everyone more time to enjoy the rink this year!
  • Several historic trolleys will be circling Downtown San Jose during the holidays this year, some of which were used in the Santa Clara Valley in the 1920s and 30s! Rides will be free for most of December.
  • Te city is launching a Shop San Jose campaign to promote purchasing goods and services in the community [TSJB: great idea]. Currently, $1.9 billion is spent by San Joseans outside of our community.
  • The San Pedro Square Market now has 7 open businesses: B2 Coffee, Pizza Bocca Lupo, Vino Vino, Ay.Dios.Mio!, Crewner's, The Showroom, and The San Pedro Square Market Bar.
  • Cabritos Mexican Bistro at 72 S. First is now open and serving home-style Mexican. Mariachi on weekends.
  • Another greentech energy company moves downtown: Directnu Energy.
