Yesterday we learned of a new sculpture called Bullman with Bulldog in downtown Walnut Creek and another new artwork is going up in part of the new Lyric apartment complex on Locust Street, which will consist of a “mosaic wall with mirrored and colored tiles, and a water feature element.” I look forward to seeing the completed work!

Last spring we learned that the San Francisco-based Peruvian restaurant Limon Rotisserie would be coming to downtown Walnut Creek where Inge’s Footwear used to be and the signage is finally up. Check out their menus here and read about their background here. Right next door Lokanta Mediterranean Bar & Grill will be opening as well.
Spotted a funny, new sculpture in downtown Walnut Creek in front of Vineyard Vines titled Bullman with Bulldog. There is even a Vineyard Vines dog bowl in front. Classic!
