Thanks to a reader for sending word (and the below photo) that a new dessert spot called Fresca Paleteria Y Neveria has opened in the FoodMaxx Plaza in Concord at the corner of Monument Blvd. and Meadow Ln. They offer ice cream, crepes, the Mexican fruit drink mangonada and more.
The new Hawaiian-style Poke restaurant Poke Salad has opened across from Todos Santos Plaza in Concord. Check out their menu here. As you can see in the above photo there are a few outdoor tables available.
The game store Black Diamond Games recently expanded their game center to a two-story section in the back of their shop located near Fry’s Electronics in Concord. According to their website they sell “board games, trading card games, collectible miniatures, and classic games like poker and chess”.
When I dropped by I was amazed by the variety of games available. Even their playing cards are fascinating. (Take a look at the photo after the jump to see what I mean.) They also have life-sized knight armor on the second floor. When I dropped by the game center in back I was amazed at how intricate the models were. Check out their schedule here to see what events and games are being played. If you’re interested in the business side of board games check out the owner’s blog here which is quite an interesting read.
They’ll be hosting a grand re-opening party on November 5th. For more information click here. If you or your kids are interested in games definitely stop by and check this place out!
