Yesterday a vegetation fire gutted the Lafayette Tennis Club on Camino Diablo in Lafayette, resulting in, “IMMEDIATE EVACUATION in the area of Camino Diablo & Springbrook Rd.” according to a message from the Lafayette Police, which was lifted several hours later. More information from this KTVU article here.

Shopping

Blazin Jayz Smoke Shop Closes in Lafayette


3566 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette

Blazin Jayz Smoke Shop, which opened last spring next to Learning Express Toys in Lafayette, closed recently, probably related to Lafayette’s flavored tobacco products ban this spring. I remember being amused by the vape flavors they offered such as, “apple e-juice, grape, banana cream and Hulk Tears” but I didn’t think most of their business comes from the sale of such products.

Cars

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.
