Dave & Buster’s Opens at The Veranda in Concord


The Veranda, Concord

Last month the giant entertainment center Dave & Buster’s opened in the Veranda shopping center where Toys “R” Us used to be. It’s very similar to Round 1 in the Sunvalley mall, also in Concord. The dining section is much bigger, there are pool tables but no ping pong nor karaoke rooms. I noticed they have a VR section with chairs that move in rhythm to the experiences which looks interesting. Bring your eag plugs because it’s loud, just like Round 1. And good luck with parking! One time I had to park on the street due to the parking situation.

New Mural Goes Up at Civic Park in Walnut Creek


Civic Park, Walnut Creek

Over the weekend I saw the finishing touches being put on a new art mural at Civic Park in downtown Walnut Creek.

From a Bedford Gallery FB post:

Monica Canilao is a multi-media artist from Oakland whose vibrant, abstracted geometric designs serve to reimagine the meaning of home and the power of collectivity. Since the late 1990s, Xara Thustra’s art has been inseparable from resistance and community in San Francisco, providing many of the signature visual images of the anti-displacement and anti-war struggles of the era.

Possible 48+ Hour Power Outage Starting Tomorrow

I cannot believe there may be a possible 48+ hour power outage tomorrow! From a PG&E email:

In most cases, we would expect to be able to restore power within 24 to 48 hours after weather has passed. Depending on weather conditions or if any repairs are needed, outages (weather event plus restoration time) could last longer than 48 hours. For planning purposes, we suggest preparing for multiple-day outages.
