With word that the Vietnamese restaurant Kevin’s Noodle House is reopening in Concord, and considering their Walnut Creek location has been open for a while now, I’m wondering what Vietnamese restaurants people have been going to. There is also Saigon Vietnamese Bistro on Newell Ave. that replaced Pho Saigon. So what’s your favorite Vietnamese restaurant?

With news this week that a new wine bar called Cine Cuvée is coming to downtown Orinda, in addition to ADEGA Wine Bar coming to downtown Walnut Creek, not to mention a new wine bar being added to the Century Theater in Walnut Creek, I’ve been wondering what are your favorite wine bars? I’m familiar with Residual Sugar, what else is out there that you recommend?

With news that Ebola has been spreading around the world, including the US, and John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek installing Ebola warning signs, I’ve been wondering how things are going to pan out. Are you worried that Ebola will spread to the East Bay or will this peter out over time?

With Halloween right around the corner and as the Halloween costume shops start popping up, it will soon be time to decide what to go as for Halloween. My kid absolutely, positively wants to be a ninja this year. Not sure what color but ninja it will be! What are you (or your kids) planning on going as for Halloween this year? Do you plan on buying a costume or making one?

Friday Question of the Day – What Should be Done About the Orinda/New Rheem Theatres in Lamorinda?

Rheem Theatre, Moraga

According to this Contra Costa Times article the The New Rheem theater in Moraga is not profitable to the owners so for a cool $4.75 million it can be yours for the taking. Moraga Councilman Dave Trotter noted that, “Over the past two decades, our community has mobilized and worked to save the Theatre and keep it open. It may now be necessary for the Moraga community to do that again, and I believe the Town government has a legitimate role to play in making that happen.”

Should these theaters be allowed to go the way of the Pleasant Hill Dome Theater and be demolished to make way for newer buildings or should the the city government get involved to help save these iconic theaters so they can continue hosting festivals such as the California Independent Film Festival?

I’ve been a member of various gyms, 24 Hour Fitness, Crossfit and others and now I’ve taken the simple route and just run on my own. The indoor cycling gym Cycle Scape Fitness is opening this month in downtown Walnut Creek which sounds intriguing. What is your favorite gym and why? What’s the most important part of a gym?
