The signage for Amphora Lafayette Olive Oil Works, located next to The Cooperage is great. I’ve been using their extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar for salad dressing and everyone in my family agrees it is SO delicious.

This Saturday Pyramid Alehouse is hosting a comedy night in downtown Walnut Creek and that got me wondering what kind of comedy clubs are in Contra Costa. I’ve been to Cobb’s in San Francisco which I enjoyed a lot. Are there any local comedy clubs that you recommend? Who’s your favorite comedian? Recently I’ve been enjoying Louis C.K. and Amy Schumer.

When I picked up this cup from a restaurant in Pleasant Hill recently I was a bit confused. I had a straw as well, but was I supposed to poke a hole in the side? Thankfully the Sip Hole with arrow pointed me to the correct location.
Spotted in downtown Orinda, this is one giant rooster.

Pizza Guys is now open in Danville on Hartz Ave. where Papa John’s used to be. Or you can wait for Blue Line Pizza to open a few blocks away…
Orinda Theatre Square
Last August we learned that Michale Friedes Design moved from their Orinda Theatre Square location and now a new educational program for girls has opened in this spot. Called the Intuitive Writing Project, An Educational Boutique for Girls, it teaches leadership skills to high school girls through writing workshops. There is also a tween program for girls aged 11 to 13.
From their website:
The Intuitive Writing Project facilitates curriculum-based empowerment programs for teenage girls. We teach leadership from the inside out, creating a safe space for girls to tell their story, speak their truth, and realize the value of their own intuitive voice. Through the experience of writing, sharing, and connecting with their peers, girls develop their confidence and discover their strengths.
