To our members:
It’s September and we’re ready for a three-day weekend. Tomorrow is action-packed with the farmer’s market, First Friday Art walk and STREET MRKT, City Dance, Every Friday and Viva Parks activities with Symphony Silicon Valley and Opera San Jose staging two free concerts Saturday and Sunday on the beautiful San Jose State University campus.
Please spend some money when you are downtown. Buy dinner. Buy drinks. When you're in the office during the week, make sure to eat out -- treat yourself and tip well. Remember, the hospitality industry is in a staffing crisis. Every single business is "now hiring." Be kind and be empathetic.
And give some credit to those businesses and employees that are back in the office. We see you supporting the local economy, taking in-person appointments, buying lunches and coffees. Massive kudos to all the event producers and art organizations that have brought back festivals and productions to activate downtown San Jose this summer. Attend them -- safely -- and enjoy yourself.
