Several Davis restaurants and bars are nearing completion, and should be ready to welcome UC Davis students as they return this fall.

Among them is Paesanos III in Davis, a pizza and pasta restaurant that is taking over the former Fuzio’s spot at 139 G St. It is set to open on Sept. 3, its Facebook page says.

G Street WunderBar in the former G Street Pub spot at 228 G St., was planning to open late this month.

The pub, which has been completely remodeled, has video games, dart boards and pool tables. There will be pool tournaments on Sundays and karaoke on Mondays. A new stage will feature live bands on Friday nights.

Jeff Day, the owner of Vini Wine Bar at 611 Second St., said Aug. 13 that he expects his bar to open “in four to six weeks,” which would mean mid- to late September.

Real estate brokers told the Sacramento Business Journal late last month that there has been plenty of interest in the Borders spot in Davis Commons. A junior clothing retailer was mentioned as one of the more likely tenants. The center is considered “a prime location,” the story said.

Oakshade Town Center in South Davis has a new owner. Regency Centers purchased the center from Petrovich Development for $35 million. The 103,762-square-foot neighborhood shopping center is anchored by Safeway, Rite Aid and OfficeMax.

A news release from Regency said the center is 95 percent leased. However, it has seen recent closures of Davis Creamery, Pure Beauty, Quiznos and Mermaids Seafood & Grill.

The company, a national owner, operator and developer of grocery-anchored and community shopping centers, owns more than 350 retail properties in the U.S. — including those held in co-investment partnerships — adding up to more than 50 million square feet, the news release said.

Brew It Up, which originated in The Marketplace in Davis but moved to midtown Sacramento when its plans to redevelop Old City Hall (now Bistro 33) were denied, closed July 31.

A Davis resident and educator opened a business this summer to help children, adults and parents cope with attention deficit and related disorders. Tomoko “TJ” Vidales owns iROC Education and Family Counseling, which has offices at 907 Third St. and 760 Fifth St. in Davis.

The goal of the consulting service is “to help support individuals with life and learning challenges, as well as those with ADHD and executive functioning difficulties, become more Independent, Responsible, Organized and Confident through practical everyday solutions,” its website, http://www.irocdavis.com, says.

Vidales also runs a free monthly ADHD parent support group on the first Sunday of every month, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Visit Parent iROC at http://www.meetup.com/Parent-iROC-Davis-CA and a monthly Club iROC for adults 18 and older with ADHD or executive function difficulties. It meets on the second and fourth Fridays of the month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Visit http://www.irocdavis.com/#!club-iroc for information on fees.

Vidales says iROC’s mission is to help individuals with “ADHD, ADD or executive functioning who are often ‘misunderstood’ and/or underperforming due to their many learning and life challenges.”

The former fifth- through seventh-grade teacher is a member of the ADHD groups ADDA and CHADD, and is certified as a CHADD Parent to Parent trainer. For information, call (530) 400-4500 or email [email protected]
