Four places open just as students leave on break

While UC Davis students started their winter break last week, four new Davis businesses emerged.

El Toro Bravo Mexican Kitchen finally opened last Sunday — 10 months after posting its liquor license application in the former Baja Fresh spot at 237 D St.

The menu sounds familiar: tacos, quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas and rellenos, but adds interesting variations like chorizo, seafood, grilled veggies and Niman Ranch steak. I liked the chorizo, a spicy and flavorful ground pork sausage.

Try it now before UC Davis classes resume on Jan. 7. Students are known to fill its sister restaurants, nearby Burgers & Brew and Crepeville. It’s open daily for lunch and dinner. Call 530-750-2500.

University of Beer, a bar at 615 Third St., had its soft opening on Thursday night. It’s under the same family ownership as KetMoRee and Red 88 Noodle Bar.

The taproom, next to Panera Bread, features 60 handles of regional and international craft beer on draft, and 40 in bottles. “The largest selection in Davis,” an owner said.

Western Feed & Pet Supply opened last Sunday, accepting customers while employees finished stocking shelves with dog and cat food. It’s at 407 G St., next to Village Pizza & Grill.

The local chain sells products for small and large animals, and has an indoor pet-washing station. It hosts veterinary clinics every Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Clinics include vaccinations, microchipping, flea and tick control and heartworm prevention.

Store hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Call 530-757-9744 or visit http://WesternFeedOnline.com.

Teabo Café opened Monday in Oakshade Town Center. The boba or “bubble” tea shop is at 2191 Cowell Blvd., Suite E, where Quizno’s was.

The drink menu includes teas, milk teas, smoothies, ices, Italian sodas and coffee. Items like tapioca pearls and/or various jellies may be added to drinks, creating what is known as tapioca (milk) tea, bubble tea, or boba. The current menu features popcorn chicken and various fries and snacks.

Its hours during the campus’ winter break are 6 p.m. to midnight. When classes resume Jan. 7, it will be noon to 2 a.m.

It’s online at http://www.teabocafe.com.

Curves Davis West will close Saturday, Dec. 29. The women’s health club is at 1260 Lake Blvd., No. 106, in the Westlake Plaza Shopping Center.

Owner Ann Arneson hoped to find a buyer so her 270 members could continue their circuit workouts.

“I will be semi-retiring to be Gramma and for health/personal reasons,” she wrote in an email earlier this month.

Arneson rallied members to raise money and food to support local causes, and led a top fundraising team for the Davis Relay for Life.

“I appreciate every ‘Curvette’ and others who have been a part of our special community of women here at Curves Davis West,” she wrote.

Reach her at 530-297-0812 or email her at curvesdaviswest@aol.com.

Namaste to The Bo Tree. Its last yoga class was Saturday. The studio is at 803 Second St., Suite C-1, in the Chen Building.
