Friday Question of the Day – Favorite Gym?


I’ve been a member of various gyms, 24 Hour Fitness, Crossfit and others and now I’ve taken the simple route and just run on my own. The indoor cycling gym Cycle Scape Fitness is opening this month in downtown Walnut Creek which sounds intriguing. What is your favorite gym and why? What’s the most important part of a gym?

Friday Question of the Day – Favorite Local BBQ Spot?

3422 Mt Diablo Blvd, Lafayette

With word that Bonehead’s Texas BBQ is coming to Lafayette, replacing beloved Bo’s Barbecue, I’ve been wondering where is the best place to get bbq in this area. What is your favorite bbq spot? What about if Oakland/Berkeley/San Francisco is included?

Friday Question of the Day – Would you Buy a Tesla?


With a Tesla showroom opening this week in Broadway Plaza I’ve been wondering how many people would buy a Tesla if money were no object. If you had $70K that you had to spend on a car would you buy the electric Tesla with a 250 mile range or would you stick with a more traditional car like BMW, Lexus etc? I’d be tempted to go with the Tesla myself.

Friday Question of the Day – Where is your Favorite Farmer’s Market?

With the new Lafayette farmer’s market opening this Sunday, I was thinking about the different farmer’s markets around town. I’ve been to the downtown Walnut Creek, Lafayette (last year), Orinda and Moraga farmer’s markets many times and like them all. One of my recent favorites is the German booth at the Orinda farmer’s market that sells various German sausages and meats including schnitzel. The pretzels are great, too. Judging by their accents, I figure it has to be quite authentic.

So where is your favorite farmer’s market? Is it based on location or what is offered?

Friday Question of the Day – Should Home Soliciting be Illegal?

There’s been lots of complaints lately about home solicitors as summer approaches, and even police departments are sending out notices on what to do and their legality. Turns out it is legal to blanket solicit homes with a permit, but there are things you can do to limit yourself like posting a “No Soliciting” sign on your door, or saying, “no thank you” without even opening your door. However, such soliciting can be used to case homes for future burglaries, or worse.

So do you think it should be illegal to solicit homes for commercial purposes?
