Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt:
Heather Farm Park
301 N. San Carlos Drive, Walnut Creek
Saturday, March 30th, 2013
Walnut Creek’s annual egg hunt for kids of all ages will be hosted this year by the Equestrian Center of Walnut Creek with help from local youth organizations including Clayton Valley High School Cheer and Dance and Contra Costa County 4H.
Back in February I noted that the women’s clothing store Threads Consignment had moved from their Locust St. location behind the Kitchen Table to a spot next to Norf London and now the previous location will be replaced by a collectible bookseller according to a source I’ve spoken with. Stay tuned…
Spotted on N. Main St. in downtown Walnut Creek, this red convertible bears a striking resemblance to this car of the day from last week.
Lululemon Dirty Run Club:
Shell Ridge Open Space
Indian Valley Elementary School, Walnut Creek
Sunday, April 7th, 2013
That’s right folks. It’s time for our lululemon trail run club to meet once again. We had so much fun the last time, we can’t wait to get dirty with you once more!
Meet at Indian Valley Elementary School. We look forward to getting down and dirty on the trail with you!
Back last December I noted the opening of a popup art gallery by Tom Matousek and now they have just opened in a new location in Lafayette at 996 Moraga Rd. next to Squirrels Coffee Shop. Take a peek inside and you’ll see his distinctive artwork hanging which looks amazing. According to their Facebook page it’s by appointment only.
Spotted in front of Venture Men’s Goods clothing store in downtown Lafayette. Entries due by Friday, March 29th. Some of the decorated egg drawings were hanging in their window. Another great idea by Venture.

The greatest Rolling Stones tribute band in the Bay Area comes to Town Hall for one night only!

Doors @ 7PM, Music @ 8PM
The children’s bookstore Storyteller has been squeezed out of their downtown location and are relocating to a spot behind Peet’s Coffee & Tea, next to Whole Foods in Lafayette to make way for the Cooperage Bar and Grill expansion taking place at the former location of Petar’s. As you can see in the photo below, the wall separating Storyteller won’t be there for long. Look for the Cooperage Bar and Grill to open sometime this summer at Lafayette Circle across the street from Chow.
Earlier this month I noted that a florist might be opening in downtown Lafayette behind Patxi’s Pizza and it turns out to have been true. Floret opens today in the Lafayette Clocktower.
