Downtown Willow Glen Holiday Bubbly Walk
Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PST)
The Holiday Bubbly Walk returns again in 2016! Join us to kick off December and the holiday frenzy with a Saturday afternoon of shopping and sipping bubbly! Tasting sites along the avenue will be set up with sparking wine.
Please note the Holiday Bubbly Walk will be held rain or shine. No refunds will be given if it rains.
When and Where to Check-in
Check-in for the event will open at 12:00 pm (event begins at 2 pm) so you can come early to avoid long lines and grab some lunch at one of our great restaurants before heading out to taste bubbly. Check-in locations will be at Goosetown Lounge (1072 Lincoln) and Realty World Castlerock (1261 Lincoln).
Please note that the check-in located at Goosetown Lounge will close at 3 pm, so if you arrive after 3 pm you’ll need to check in at the Realty World Castlerock location.
Please do not forget your ID, as we will check ID for ALL attendees. At check-in you will receive a wristband, champagne glass and a map to all of the tasting sites.
Please drink responsibly and taste the bubbly on a full stomach! Unfortunately, the Health Dept. does not allow tasting sites that are not restaurants to serve anything other than pre-wrapped individual servings of non-potentially-hazardous snacks, so most sites will not have a lot of food to offer to you. Many of our restaurants will have special deals for Bubbly Walk attendees, which will be noted on the map you’ll get at check-in, so be sure to stop and eat some along the way, too. Be sure to also stop at the nonalcoholic stations to hydrate with some delicious sparkling nonalcoholic beverages!
Most of our tasting sites are fairly small businesses so do not have bathroom facilities that can handle a crowd so their bathrooms will not be available to Bubbly Walk attendees. Port-o-lets for Bubbly Walk attendees will be located at the front of the Bank of America parking lot.
Please consider taking a yellow cab or Uber or Lyft to the event instead of driving! If you do drive to the event please note that no ticket is needed for designated drivers accompanying you who will not be tasting. Free public parking is available in the Bank of America parking lot (disregard the 2 hour signs for that day). There are a few other lots in Downtown Willow Glen that also have parking or you can park on a nearby sidestreet. Just be sure to NOT park behind CVS or Orange Theory Fitness or you might be towed.
Please Bubble Responsibly!
Again, designated drivers do not need a ticket to accompany you on the Bubbly Walk or please consider taking a cab or Uber or Lyft! Yellow Cab’s number is 408-777-7777.
The Bubbly Walk will be held rain or shine. No refunds will be given if it rains.
No refunds will be given without at least 48 hours notice before the event.
