Hartz Cafe, featuring crepes, ice cream and coffee, opened this week on, can you guess, Hartz Ave. in Danville, where BlooGrape Organic Sworls used to be. I don’t see any social media presence yet but crepes and ice cream sure does sound delicious as summer approaches.

The 1960’s brought us the war in Vietnam. It also brought us JFK, LBJ, landing on the moon and much more. Issues such as civil rights, the environment, worker’s rights and women’s rights were beginning to move to the forefront of American’s minds. The San Ramon Valley was not immune to these changes. See how these and other events effected the Valley.
Last spring we learned that Basil Leaf Cafe would be closing on Hartz Ave. in Danville and now the Tex-Mex restaurant Cocina Hermanas has opened in this spot. This the same owner as Harvest across the street. Check out their lunch menu here and dinner menu here.

Excited to see Lottie’s Creamery opening their third location in Danville where Danville Soup and Salad Shack used to be! Check for their latest flavors on their Facebook page here. Someone mentioned they have new owners which may explain the expansion. This is one of my favorites, made right in downtown Walnut Creek “pasteurizing local and seasonal ingredients”.

Cast Party is a wildly popular happening that has brought Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night since 2003. It is the ultimate spot to mix and mingle with show folk and the people who love them. Cast Party is a hilariously impromptu variety show/open mic where showbiz superstars and up-and-comers deliver jaw-dropping musical performances and razzle-dazzle. You just never know WHO will show up!
