Cork It Again Wine Sellers, coming soon to 820 Fourth St., “is a retail outlet and wine-tasting room, its Facebook page says. “We offer great wines at great prices, and encourage customers to try before they buy.

“Our mission is to dramatically reduce the environmental footprint by reusing, not recycling, our wine bottles. This allows our customers to … waste less and pay less for a great bottle of wine.”

Customers sample, then purchase wines. When they are done, they bring return their rinsed bottle to be refilled at a discount. “By reusing your bottle you are not only doing your part to help the environment but you are also able to enjoy a great bottle of wine for a fraction of the cost you would pay for that same wine at the store.”

The owners of the incoming The Root of Happiness Kava Bar are looking at a March opening for their Davis location, at 211 F St. Kava, a traditional Polynesian, nonalcoholic beverage, is touted for its calming effects.

“We had a bit of a hold-up with the contractor but we are now moving forward,” owners Tyler Blythe and Travis Lowin said in an email.

The same owners also have a kava bar in Rancho Cordova at 1949 Zinfandel Drive. The Davis menu likely will include kombucha, teas, coffee and teriyaki rice bowls. Its hours will be afternoons and evenings.

Carl’s Jr. opened Friday at 1701 Cowell Blvd. The new restaurant is in the former Wendy’s location in South Davis.

It’s the second full-service Carl’s Jr. in Davis, but the only one with a drive-through. There is also a Carl’s Jr. in the Silo at UC Davis. Like the Covell eatery, it includes a Green Burrito menu.

Sugar Daddies will open a store in Folsom by this spring, according to published reports.

The Davis store, at 113 E St., was formed in 2011 by combining Davis Creamery and Cupcake Craving. Now it will take over the Cupcake Craving spot at 1167 Riley St. in Folsom.

The former Woodhaven Lanes bowling alley in Woodland is being remodeled, and will reopen as San Bruno Bowling Center in the next couple of months, according to published reports.

The bowling center, at 154 W. Main St., closed in July 2012.
