The second hand clothing and home goods store MidMod Exchange opened recently at Orinda Theatre Square. Acording to a sign in the window, everything is under $40, “new items every week”. Check out their Facebook page here.
Airbnb no longer allow “party houses” because of this incident. I checked the homicide rates of Lamorinda and this is the highest total I have seen in one year. Anyone know if this number has ever been surpassed in LAfayette, MOraga or OrINDA?

The Orinda Police Department and the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff continue to investigate a shooting that occurred on the 100 block of Lucille Way in Orinda on Thursday, October 31, 2019, at about 10:50 PM.
Orinda Police Officers, along with law enforcement officers from throughout the county, arrived on scene and found a house party with over 100 attendees. The party-goers apparently came from throughout the Bay Area for the Halloween event, which was advertised on social media. The party took place in a home that was found on a short-term rental website.
Arriving Officers found a highly chaotic scene that included gunshot victims, injured party-goers, and numerous people fleeing the scene. Officers triaged the victims, cleared the location for safety and safeguarded the crime scene. Law enforcement officers found three gunshot victims who were later pronounced deceased at the scene. Another died at the hospital.
Piccolo Napoli, which opened over six years ago in Orinda Theatre square, is under new ownership according to a sign in the window. It looks like some remodeling is happening before they reopen. Stay tuned for the opening…
