June 2021 Downtown Dimension Highlights

 The JUNE Downtown Dimension is now available for download.
This month's newsletter highlights:  
  • Dine Downtown returns starting July 1.  The "Restaurant Week" won't be as long as it was last fall, but it has been extended to 18 days this time around.  Some of downtown's best restaurants have already signed up, and more are expected to join the fun this month. Get ready to explore new places and visit longtime favorites.
  • Two new entertainment venues are set to open in downtown San Jose.  San Pedro Social Club opens with bowling lanes, a first for downtown.  And in SoFA, you will find the best gamers in the area battling it out for bragging rights.  The experience includes food, drink, games and a lot of social. Post-pandemic, it may be just what the doctor orders.
  • The North San Pedro housing area is starting to fill up, with the opening of The Julian, added financing for an affordable housing project set to be finished this year, and a land sale that may lead to the start of another residential project sooner than anticipated.
  • Santa Clara County Supervisors adopted Laura's Law, an important step in assisting individuals with untreated severe mental illness.
  • ParkSJ parking meters and garages now offer contactless payments. Just tap your credit card or ApplePay device over the receiver and you are good to go.
  • Happy 50th anniversary to Togo's, which started in San Jose and has grown to almost 200 locations throughout the West.
  • William Quevedo is celebrated as Groundwerx's Employee of the Month.
  • For the ultimate boba and tea drink, try Dr.Ink off San Pedro Square.
  • Fall will be a transition semester at San Jose State, with students in classrooms, at home online and some hybrid classes.  Faculty returns in July and classes begin Aug. 18.

SJDA’s next public meeting will be Friday, June 11 at 8:15 a.m. via Zoom. The agenda includes a presentation by Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez on mental health and homeless solutions. Register in advance for this webinar at
