Thanks to a reader for pointing out that Mom’s Touch Chicken & Burger, which opened near Todos Santos Plaza in Concord, has closed. According to a sign in the window a new restaurant with a different name will also be serving chicken sandwiches. I wonder how close in taste it’ll be to the Mom’s Touch sandwiches?
In May we learned that Lovesac would be coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek and the “Opening Summer 2018” signage is now up. Check out their bean bag chair selection here and modular furniture system called sactionalshere. I checked out their showroom in San Francisco recently and was impressed with the bean bag chairs. They are HUGE!

18 years ago on his date, Leslie and I signed a lease and began the party we call Nitro Dog. Today we announce its closure and our upcoming retirement! Our last day of business will be near the end of July. There have been so many great things, events and friendships that have come from this shop! We’re most proud of the thousands of pets and people who we’ve helped start, live and finish their lives together. Now we begin our next journey. BE HAPPY FOR US!!!!!!
