With construction under way, I’m getting lots of questions about the former Dairy Queen building at 909 Fifth St.

As I’ve mentioned before, Indigo Hammond + Playle Architects is keeping the exterior lines of the building and adding on, creating an office space for its business. Contractors have cleaned out the interior and removed the front walls and windows.

The firm will “expand and repurpose the existing building as a super sustainable studio/office,” owner Jonathan Hammond said, noting that he and owner Bruce Playle were “pleased with the existing building’s unique roofline,” which they intend to preserve.

Golden State Tires recently opened at 5100 Chiles Road. It sells new and used tires, fixes flats and does oil changes. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

Sally Parker, organizer of the Square Tomatoes Craft Fair, sent me a note saying many people in Davis don’t know about it. It’s typically on the second Sunday of the month, and celebrates its second anniversary in August.

“It is a festival in Central Park with 30 to 40 vendors, a jazz band, dancing and a collection of the finest artisans in Davis,” Parker said. Instructors from the UC Davis Craft Center are the primary coordinators.

The next event, “Gems, Jewelry and Geology,” is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 6. It will feature more than 30 food and craft vendors, a “Comfort Café” with chairs and books, and the New Harmony Jazz Band.

The owners of The Root of Happiness Kava Bar still had to meet with city and fire inspectors as of Thursday night. They said they’d keep me posted on a pending opening. It’s at 211 F St., in the E Street Plaza.

The owner of the proposed Bear Factory Tea Lounge reports that plans have not fallen through for the boba teashop. The Westlake Plaza sign came down for other reasons, Paul Cerna said.

Sweeties Café opened June 21 at 537B Main St., Woodland. It fills the former Main Street Cafe spot. A grand opening is planned for Saturday and Sunday, July 12 and 13.

Owner Ted Ramirez serves ice cream, cupcakes, cookies, cakes, pies and candy, all made there. Other food includes sandwiches, salads, soups and Sunday brunch, according to The Daily Democrat.

For 20 years, Ramirez has owned Ted’s Treats, selling English toffee. That business will merge with this one, the story said.
