Davis Awards & Watchworks, 716 Second St., will close on New Year’s Eve after 20 years in business, owner Andy Rathbone confirms.

Rathbone said the date marks “exactly 20 years to the day of serving the community.” He is thankful to everyone who came in to his store in the last two decades.

The store offers trophies, plaques and awards; sells and repairs watches; and does other engraving. When I posted the announcement on the Comings & Goings Facebook page, it received more than 15 comments from sad customers, like, “Oh, no!”

Zindagi Indian Bistro appears to be closed — at least temporarily. Its website is offline, and its phone’s voicemail box is full. The restaurant, at 213 E St., opened in January 2012, and received top reviews from The Sacramento Bee’s Blair Anthony Robertson.

————

Roos’ Café, an indoor playplace and café in Mace Ranch, is open at 2939 Spafford St., in Fifth Street Plaza.

It’s “an indoor playground designed for kids 0-5, and a café for everyone,” according to owner (and mom) Ru Zheng. Hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.

————

Ramen House is setting up its restaurant inside University Mall, next to Forever 21. It’s advertising for help, so maybe it won’t be too long. It’s hard to tell because the windows are covered in paper.

————

Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse may open as early as Sunday at 164 Main St. in Woodland, in Ruby Tuesday’s former building.

Owner James Wells said he hopes to open the doors at noon, “but definitely by Monday.”

Hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily except for Sundays, when it opens at noon. Call 530-661-0900 or visit www.originalpetes.net/locations/woodland.

The menu includes pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, salads and soups. It will feature craft beer made for the Woodland restaurant.
