1501 N. Broadway, Walnut Creek

I noticed new signage up at the upcoming jazz club and lounge Impulse Room that we learned would be coming to downtown Walnut Creek. According to their Facebook page “it looks like 2 1/2 weeks of construction and however long it will take to get final inspections.” Find out more about the club and wine/beer bar at their website here. On there it notes an April opening. Stay tuned…

Burger Lounge Opening End of March in Orchards Shopping Center in Walnut Creek

Orchards Shopping Center, Walnut Creek

Last summer we learned that Southern California-based Burger Lounge would be coming to the Orchards shopping center in Walnut Creek and they will be opening the last week of March. Check out their menu here. Grass-fed beef hamburger for $7.99. That seems reasonable, I look forward to trying this place out.
