Dos Coyotes Border Cafe Closes at Willows Shopping Center in Concord


Willows Shopping Center, Concord

Dos Coyotes Border Cafe, which opened a few years ago at the Willows shopping center in Concord, has closed. I wonder if they held out a little longer whether the increased foot traffic from Half Price Books opening next door would have made any difference? Thanks to a reader for sending word about the closing.

Dave & Buster’s Opens at The Veranda in Concord


The Veranda, Concord

Last month the giant entertainment center Dave & Buster’s opened in the Veranda shopping center where Toys “R” Us used to be. It’s very similar to Round 1 in the Sunvalley mall, also in Concord. The dining section is much bigger, there are pool tables but no ping pong nor karaoke rooms. I noticed they have a VR section with chairs that move in rhythm to the experiences which looks interesting. Bring your eag plugs because it’s loud, just like Round 1. And good luck with parking! One time I had to park on the street due to the parking situation.
