I’ll be at Coffee Shop in downtown Walnut Creek tomorrow (Wed, July 1st) at 7 pm (wearing a black Beyond the Creek t-shirt). If you want to chat about the what’s going on around town or just to say hi, please stop by. It’s great reading the comments on the blog, Facebook and Twitter so I thought it would be fun to meet up in person.

Broadway Pointe, Walnut Creek
The upscale home goods store Restoration Hardware, located in downtown Walnut Creek in the Broadway Pointe shopping plaza, is looking to relocate to a new flagship store across the street in Broadway Plaza according to a reliable source. It’s not definite but it looks like it would be located where the Macy’s men’s store is on the backside next to the restaurant Stanford’s. This will take place at a later phase within the Broadway Plaza plan. Stay tuned…
