Cars of the Day

I’ve seen quite a few Lamborghinis on city streets in my life, possibly even two, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen three of them parked without a special event going on. Spotted in downtown Lafayette. I guess there was some kind of Lamborghini fan club meetup going on.

Joe & the Juice Opens at Park Plaza Shops in Lafayette


Park Plaza Shops, Lafayette

Joe & the Juice opened recently at the Park Plaza Shops in Lafayette where Squirrel’s Coffee Shop used to be. In addition to drinks they also offer sandwiches and yogurt. Check out their menu here. I heard they tried to be edgy so wasn’t surprised that all three employees bore plenty of tattoos.

Out of curiosity I’ll have to drop by another time to see if there are tattoo-less employees.

Boswell’s Discount Party Supplies Closes in Lafayette after 35 Years


3483 Mt Diablo Blvd, Lafayette

Thanks to everyone who sent word that Boswell’s Discount Party Supplies has closed in Lafayette after 35 years due losing their lease according to a sign in the window. Their Danville location remains open. One reader wrote in hoping that the Lafayette police department takes over this space due to, “police equipment parked in the median and one further down the street toward Jack-in-the-Box.” Check out the photo below and you can see this is no exaggeration.
