According to the latest leasing information the spot at Main Street Plaza in Walnut Creek where Sunrise Bistro is located is available for lease. Word on the street is a possible closing next year but apparently they may relocate to smaller locations instead. Check out their menus here.
A & G Jewelers is closing on December 24th in downtown Walnut Creek. According to the signs outside they are retiring. I’ve been going here for many years for various repairs and have always had excellent experiences so this is too bad!
I was checking out Sports Basement at Ygnacio Plaza in Walnut Creek recently when I realized that Modern Acupuncture opened. Find out more about their services here.
I had never tried acupuncture before but since they just opened I was able to try a free 30 minute session. The communal area in back has numerous reclining, heated massage chairs separated by curtains for semi-privacy. It’s quiet with TV screens showing nature scenes with soft music playing in the background. You take your shoes and socks off sitting or lying on the chair and wait for the acupuncturist to come where she asks about problem areas. I mentioned my back and stress and eventually she applied several needles to my hands, feet and head in particular areas to help with these problem areas. Then she left for 20 minutes while I tried to relax with needles sticking out of me. Eventually I got used to it and she came back to remove the needles. Although it’s not like a massage where I get instant relief, I did feel noticeably better later on which pleasantly surprised me. Not sure if this is a placebo affect but I actually feel like it worked better than a massage. If you’re thinking about trying it out I recommend checking this place out!
I noticed this sign near the Walnut Creek library which touts Walnut Creek’s first cycle-track that is “physically separated from traffic and distinct from sidewalks and pedestrian zones.” Has anyone ridden this? What do you think?

Last fall we learned that YogaWorks would be relocating within downtown Walnut Creek to Main Street Plaza and as you can see, their signage is now up and eventually the blacked out part will presumable say Open. In the meantime check out their two nearby popup locations here and their schedule here.
