It was cold and rainy, but it was still a nice area. EXCEPT for the homeless people hanging around! But what can you do? They weren't hurting anyone. Many shops and the best part was that the parking garage was free on the weekend!

We walked around, and ate at Tomato Heads. It was good, reasonable prices. Waited too long for food. Waiter said we could ask at front for free cookies. Didn't do it, wish he had just brought them to us.

As far as I know, they are. I have not heard otherwise. If you have a restaurant in mind, you might want to double check with that individual restaurant.
