Amphora Soft Opening this Weekend

Berkeley-based olive oil and balsamic vinegar company Amphora is having a soft opening this weekend with the grand opening set for November 8th. Check out their available extra virgin olive oils and vinegar here. Located next to the Cooperage in downtown Lafayette, the inside looks great as you can see in the photos below.

Dear BtCreek – Heather Farm Park Restrooms?


Dear BtCreek-

Why no restrooms at Heather Farms Parks? Restrooms are across the streets at various other establishments. In lieu of the gigantic new playground there why could they not put in restrooms for the kids?

Are there any public restrooms near the new all abilities playground in Heather Farm Park? I know the Clarke Swim Center has restrooms but they’re not public.
