Outdoor dining in Walnut Creek/Concord?

Dave MP | May 10, 201209:57 PM     25

I have a vision, and I'm curious whether I can make it a reality this summer. Perhaps someone can advise. Here it is:

5:30 PM - Hop on BART in Downtown SF and take the train to somewhere in the warm part of the East Bay....probably Walnut Creek or beyond.

6:15 PM - Get off BART, and walk to a nearby restaurant, where I sit outside, enjoying the warm summer evening that I can't always get in SF. The restaurant might be casual/order at counter (bbq, burgers, good sandwiches) or might be something a bit nicer (a place with sit-down service, drinks, etc), but either way would have a nice environment for hanging out for about 2 hours or more. Also important: in my vision, the food is delicious and hits the spot on a summer night.

8:30 PM - Walk back to BART, go home to SF.

In terms of the walking part, I'd rather not walk more than 10 minutes.

So, is this possible? If only Bear Republic Brewery in Healdsburg was BART accessible :)

Thanks,
Dave MP
