Barnes & Noble Opening Soon at The Veranda in Concord


The Veranda, Concord

As you can see from the above photo the Barnes & Noble signage is up at the Veranda shopping center in Concord. Although the property manager mentioned a scheduled April opening this month, when I looked inside they’re still working on the flooring and it’s completely empty inside so they’re going to have to hurry up to get this open this month. With Yard House restaurant opening at the end of the month I shudder to thinking about the parking situation in this area…

Ko Cups Opening March 16th at The Veranda in Concord


The Veranda, Concord

Last fall we learned that the Korean bbq place in a cup, Ko Cups would be opening in the Veranda shopping center in Concord and they will be officially opening this Saturday, March 16th. On that opening day they, “will offer a free regular fountain beverage on March 16 with every entrée cup purchase.”

From a PR:

From the start, their goal has been to make tasty yet reasonably priced Korean food, served in a bowl. Each Ko-Cup starts off with a base of rice, crispy lettuce, japchae noodles and a protein selection. Next comes a topping of extra-sweet corn, slices of sweet pickled yellow radish and black sesame seeds. The final touch is a choice of several homemade sauces, such as mayo-mustard, mayo-gochujang (hot pepper) and hot gochujang.
