Over processed Boar’s Head meat, no interesting menu choices and the bread is grocery store quality… no thanks… My rule is this: if I can make it at home with Safeway products, then I’m not interested.

Last month we learned that the bridal boutique Brides on Hartz would be opening in Danville and they are now open. In addition to wedding gowns they also offer wedding and event planning services here. Note that there is a spacious fitting area towards the back with couch and chairs. Learn more about the owners here.
The online thrift store ThredUp, which opened last summer in downtown Walnut Creek, is relocating a couple of blocks away where Five Little Monkeys used to be. According to a sign posted on their door they expect to open “early May”. Interestingly, it mistakenly says that they are currently at “Broadway Plaza”. They are actually at the Broadway Pointe shopping center, across the street from Broadway Plaza.

Join us for an evening with Jason Fagone, an author and journalist who covers science, technology, and culture. He was named one of “Ten Young Writers on the Rise” by the Columbia Journalism Review. His latest book, The Woman Who Smashed Codes: A True Story of Love, Spies, and the Unlikely Heroine Who Outwitted America’s Enemies, reads like a thriller. Fagone brings to light a brilliant, unsung woman, Elizebeth Friedman, who helped shape modern espionage and intelligence gathering while paying tribute to her historical contributions.
Last September we learned about Michigan-based Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea coming to the Lyric apartments in downtown Walnut Creek and the window signage is now up. It looks like there is going to be a nice sized patio area in front. I look forward to checking this place out. Check out their menu here and learn more about the founders here.
The pet supply and grooming store Bark Avenue is coming to Alamo Plaza where Loard’s Ice Cream used to be (as well as the spot next door) this summer, possibly opening by the end of June.
