Old Soul Co., an artisan coffee and baking café with four locations in Sacramento, is looking to brew something up in Davis, sources confirm.

Tim Jordan, a coffee expert who co-owns the business with craft baker Jason Griest, told me he’d provide more details next week.

The Old Soul cafés in Sacramento include The Alley at 1716 L St., its headquarters for roasting, baking and hosts educational classes. Others are Weatherstone at 812 21st St., Forty Acres at 3434 Broadway, and Old Soul at the Airport, in Terminal B.

Besides its locally and ethically sourced coffees, the cafés serve baked goods, sandwiches and salads.

The much-anticipated Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will open on Thursday. It fills the former McDonald’s Express space at 640 W. Covell Blvd.

Owner James Domsic was finishing up some minor details for inspectors when he called me on Thursday, but was confident that everything would be ready.

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. There’s also free soft-serve ice cream.

Putah Creek Winery announced Wednesday that its downtown tasting room will open Saturday, May 3. It’s at 110 F St., next to CREAM.

Hours will be 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesdays through Sundays.

Carlton Plaza of Davis will have its grand opening event on Thursday. It’s from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at 2726 Fifth St. RSVP to 530-564-7002. The senior apartment and assisted living facility offers several levels of care.

Because parking is limited, attendees are encouraged to pick up the Carlton Plaza of Davis shuttle bus at the south side of the Target parking lot on Second Street.

The Gateway Shopping Center in Woodland (home to Costco) has some new tenants: General Nutrition Center  and Sleep Train. GNC should open soon.

And according to the Woodland Daily Democrat, County Fair Fashion Mall tenants Cinemark 5, Radio Shack and Payless Shoe Source are looking to move there as well. Unless the city denies the request, the businesses will join Target and Matthews Mattress, two businesses that already left the ailing County Fair Mall. The mall owner is protesting.

Happy Easter!
