Our first Halloween in Pleasanton as the owners of Cookees Drive-In. We wanted to do something for Halloween and we heard that no one really did much in the way of haunted houses. We decided to close off the dining area of our restaurant and turn it into our version of a, "Haunted Drive-In!" We had a great turn-out and collected food for the local Harvesters Food Pantry to help those in need! Thanks Pleasanton!
