Specialty beer shop, bar is brewing on G Street

August 13, 2010 |

Special to The Enterprise

The Davis Beer Shoppe is under construction at 211 G St., next to The Artery.

The project description that went before the Davis Planning Commission says it will be a beer specialty store. It will feature a beer-only bar and sell packaged beer to take home.

City documents say the business applicant is Taylor H. Ramos of Sacramento. The property owner is Uptown Enterprises.

Proposed hours were 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays to Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursdays, 9 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.


In what Express Editor Debra DeAngelo dubbed Òa whopper of a meeting,Ó Wednesday, Winters planners OKÕd the small townÕs first drive-through Ñ a Burger King.

The project, on the northeast corner of Grant Avenue and County Road 90 just off Interstate 505, will feature an Arco gas station, truck refueling station and mini mart.

Twenty-two people spoke at the meeting Ñ a record, according to Commissioner Wade Cowan. One of the vocal opponents was Winters resident Shaunie Briggs, who said the construction of the Burger King complex at the entrance to town Òwill make us look like Anytown, USA.Ó

ÑÑÑ is a new online resource and gathering place for parents.

ItÕs managed by Teri McNamara, a Davis mom of three boys ages 7, 8 and 12. A former teacher with a degree in child development, McNamara said she saw SacParentClick as Òa wonderful opportunity for me to work, be with the kids after school, and give back to families and communities,Ó the website says.

She added, ÒOur main goal is to make life easier for parents, grandparents, teachers and child care providers to become closer and stronger with other communities and families.Ó


A sign is now up at Dosirak, a Korean restaurant coming to Anderson Plaza. An entry on Davis Wiki says the name Òcomes from a Korean word for a boxed lunch similar to a bento.Ó

Construction is still under way inside 640 W. Covell Blvd., Suite A, the former site of a Baskin-Robbins.


Blisworks Bikes opened in July at 1340 E. Covell Blvd., Suite 102, in Oak Tree Plaza.

According to owner Sheldon BlissettÕs comments on the storeÕs Davis Wiki page, Blissett is an avid mountain biker and former owner of a bike courier business in Washington, D.C. He became a bicycle mechanic in 1991 Òwith the hopes of cutting my repair expenses.Ó

Lately, heÕs worked at or managed bike shops in D.C. and around Davis, it said.

Blisworks Bikes is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and by appointment on Mondays. Call (530) 758-RIDE (7433).


A former Dixon firehouse has been remodeled, and now houses a tea room, hair salon, and dental and law offices at 140 N. Jackson St. in Dixon.

Dr. Kristina L. Wiley, DDS, purchased and renovated the building. She will move her dental practice

upstairs, which will be fully accessible with a new elevator.

Attorney John De Rosa will have an office upstairs in addition to his office in Sacramento. Le Petite Hair Salon will complete the second floor tenant spaces.

The new Linde Lane Tearoom has the downstairs portion of the old firehouse. It offers more than 50 teas to drink there or at home. It offers four styles of afternoon teas, with traditional offerings like sandwiches, pastries, jam and clotted cream.

There are two areas to accommodate private parties, the Whimsical Room and the Teddy Bear Room. It will be a new venue for birthday celebrations, and bridal and baby showers.

It is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call (707) 693-TEAS (8327). It also has an online tea store at


Hastings Back Porch recently reopened after being closed for remodeling. The antiques and collectibles store in Mansion Square, Second and E streets, is having its grand reopening.
