Hop Into Fun at the Boundary Oak Easter Egg-stravaganza!

On Saturday, March 30, the Boundary Oak Golf Course in Walnut Creek, California, will transform into a festive playground as it welcomes families to its annual Easter Egg Hunt. The community is abuzz with anticipation for this complimentary event, set against the scenic backdrop of rolling greens and fairways.

The day promises an array of activities tailored for children of all ages, with designated start times ensuring everyone gets their chance at the egg-hunting excitement. Little ones aged 0-2 are scheduled to begin their hunt at 1:15 PM, followed by the 3-5 age group at 1:30 PM, and the 6-12 brigade taking the stage at 1:45 PM. But the fun doesn't end with the hunt; children can enjoy face painting, bounce in jump houses, and engage in coloring activities, with the possibility of a meet-and-greet with the Easter Bunny himself.

For more details, community members can reach out to the golf course directly. This day of joyous activities is not just an Easter celebration but a cherished opportunity for the community to come together in the spirit of springtime fun.

Gourmet Cookies and Innovative Desserts Arrive at The Orchards Shopping Center

In the heart of The Orchards Shopping Center in Walnut Creek, a delightful duo of culinary destinations has emerged, promising to tantalize taste buds and enrich the local dessert landscape. First on the scene is Chip Cookies, situated at 2335 Oak Grove Road, right beside Dulce’s Antojitos. Known as the pioneer of gourmet cookie delivery, Chip Cookies has transformed midnight cravings into a flourishing business. The inception of this sweet venture traces back to a couple, Sean and Sarah, who, during their first pregnancy, found themselves yearning for warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies at unconventional hours. This craving led to the birth of not just their child, Zoe Jane, but also a business model focused on delivering freshly baked, gourmet cookies directly to customers' doors. Chip Cookies prides itself on spreading joy one cookie at a time, a tradition they are excited to continue in Walnut Creek.

Just a short stroll away, at 2357 Oak Grove Road adjacent to The Kebab Shop, lies the newly opened second outlet of Devil & Angels Desserts. Originally hailing from the Veranda in Concord, this dessert shop is redefining the sweet treat experience with its unique blend of desserts that dare to ask, "Why not combine them?" At Devil & Angel, customers are invited to explore an innovative menu featuring handcrafted soft serve in cones or waffles, an assortment of refreshers, milk tea, bubble smoothies, boba ice cream, and various doughnuts, including the coveted mochi doughnuts. The team behind Devil & Angels Desserts is committed to pushing the boundaries of dessert innovation, focusing on quality ingredients, product excellence, and an unforgettable customer experience.
