Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is tentatively scheduled to open on Thursday, April 24. As of last week, the flooring and other finishing touches were going in at the former McDonald’s Express space at 640 W. Covell Blvd.

Owner James Domsic said Thursday that the opening date is pending inspections scheduled this week.

It will feature Texas-style barbecue foods and gluten-free sauces. Meats include ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, ham, turkey or chicken breast, and Polish sausage. Save your appetite, ’cause there’s also free soft-serve ice cream.

Sudwerk Brewing Co. launched a Kickstarter campaign this month to paint a new rooftop mural that will be visible from Interstate 80 and the Pole Line Road overpass. It reached its goal in the first 10 days.

“Combining graphic sensibilities with elements of Davis’ beautiful, natural surroundings, this wall will be one of Davis’ largest contemporary murals, and a source of community pride,” the Kickstarter page says.

As of Thursday, it had reached $5,010 of its $5,000 goal, which means it will be funded. The mural will feature work by Evan Wilson of ESK, a 2005 Davis High grad whose projects at the brewery included painting two roll-up doors at the Sudwerk taproom, The Dock Store.

The campaign continues through May 1. For information, visit its Facebook page.

Speaking of painting, an artist from Easter Island arrives today, and is scheduled to start work on Monday on a 15-by-20-foot mural inside The Root of Happiness Kava Bar. It should take about three weeks to paint.

I spoke with co-owner Travis Lowin last week. He hopes to open the business in early May. It’s at 211 F St., in the E Street Plaza. Kava, a traditional Polynesian, nonalcoholic beverage, is said to have calming effects.

Tibet Nepal, the clothing, jewelry and gift store at 239 G St., is moving in May to the former Hand Made Creation spot at 233 F St. Creation closed late last month.

Tibet Nepal’s building is likely being demolished for a redevelopment project approved Wednesday by the Davis Planning Commission.

The Subway sandwich shop at 13o G St. is still closed for remodeling. A note on its door says it’s scheduled to reopen on April 30.

Davis Strength and Conditioning moved from its downtown spot at 817 Fourth St. to 2939 Spafford St., Suite 100, the former site of Mace Market. The new space is twice the size. Yijie Ge and Drew Temple are the owners.

It offers training in power lifting, flexibility, mobility, speed or a combination called mixed modality. There’s also personal and team training.

————

Yakitori Yuchan, a Japanese barbecue restaurant, has its liquor license posted at the former Beach Hut Deli location at 109 E St. Remodeling didn’t appear to have started when I peeked in on Wednesday.

Owner Yuji Yokoyama of Roseville, who owns sushi restaurants in that area, said the casual fare will be different from other Japanese food in the area. Instead of sushi, Yakitori Yuchan will offer small plates of skewered chicken, veggies and seafood. The barbecue uses special charcoal imported from Japan. Beverages will include beer, wine and sake.

————

Huku Japanese Bistro, coming to the El Macero Shopping Center later this spring or summer, will offer traditional Japanese food, with bento boxes, rolls and sashimi, according to the Sacramento Business Journal. Chuck Kim owns the restaurant at 4615 Cowell Blvd. He recently opened Ramen Hook inside University Mall.

————

Whole Foods Market’s new eating area opened recently. It expanded into the former Jamba Juice space in Davis Commons.

————

The Parrot Cellular at 2151 Cowell Blvd., Suite E, closed earlier this year.

————

Fish’s Wild, the healthy fast food eatery at 516 Second St., changed its name a while ago to Dot Island Grill. The menu doesn’t seem to have changed much, however.
