I like to think I’m pretty worldly; I’ve traveled to 20 different countries and have tried many different cuisines in my life, but there is always something new to try. This time, however, something new has come to Livermore.

Yep, we have a new restaurant in town! Everybody, welcome Raging Falafel to good ol’ Livermore, California.

When I hear about a new restaurant, it’s really a special treat. It’s not every day I get to experience a grand opening so this is very exciting – especially since I started The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge.

When I first heard about the Raging Falafel, I thought, “What’s falafel? Have I ever had falafel? I think I’ve had falafel. Maybe I haven’t had falafel. Wait, what’s falafel?”

Livermore Pumpkin Patches

Livermore Pumpkin Patches

Halloween is upon us and you know what that means… PUMPKINS!!!

While picking up pumpkins at the grocery store is convenient, it just doesn’t get you into the Halloween spirit like a pumpkin patch does.

While I haven’t found The Great Pumpkin, during my quest I did discover a couple great pumpkin patches in Livermore. We have Joan’s Farm & Pumpkin Patch on Mines Road and G&M Farms on Airway Boulevard. While they are not “cut-your-own” patches, they do both offer lots of pumpkins and plenty of entertainment for the family.

Before you head out on your great pumpkin quest, read on for more info about Livermore’s great pumpkin patches below.
