The story was reported worldwide how two men lost to a dog named
Bosco in an unofficial Mayor’s race in the town of Sunol. No one realized
that prank in 1981 would make the town of Sunol so famous! From then on,
people just accepted the fact that Bosco was the Mayor.
On July 24, 1984, the Star newspaper wrote an article about Mayor
Bosco. The article said he ruled with an paw, took grafts from all businesses
in town, in the way of beef jerky (which was his favorite) and dog biscuits.
Many news articles had been written about Mayor Bosco, and he had appeared
on television numerous times. Even his death in 1994 was on television as
well as in news print.
So you see, Mayor Bosco made the town of Sunol famous! As a tribute
to Mayor Bosco and the town of Sunol, the restaurant and saloon is named
Bosco’s Bones and Brew.
