Cutting the grass at Portola Park on the corner of Portola and N. Livermore Avenues.
Before I began my journey to try every restaurant in Livermore, I challenged myself to try every hot dog joint in town (read about it here). That hot doggin’ idea actually inspired me to start The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge.
Now that I’m closing in on forty restaurants so far, I find that my taste buds are a little more refined than they used to be. A year ago I’d eat anything without much of a fuss. Today I can tell the difference between filler and good food. Who knew?
Yes, yes, I know what you’re thinking. I’ll admit that my pinky finger now rises when I lift a burger to my mouth. But hey, I knew that this challenge had risks.
So what does my pinky have to do with hot dogs? I mean, can you actually have refined tastes and raise your pinky while eating a footlong? Darn tootin’ you can!

Say hello to Riley, a Goldendoodle who loves to walk the Arroyo Mocho Trail and hang out downtown. In his spare time he volunteers as a canine comfort pet therapy dog for the Valley Humane Society. Thanks for sharing your photo Lisa, you and Riley totally rock!
