Tesla Model 3 Mania at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek

Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

Now that the $35,000 electric Tesla Model 3 model is being displayed at the Tesla showroom at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek there have been major lines outside waiting to get a closer look.

From the Model 3 website page:

Model 3 is a smaller, simpler, more affordable electric car. Although it is our newest vehicle, Model 3 is not “Version 3” or the most advanced Tesla. Like Model S, it is designed to be the safest car in its class.



We Olive Closing Jan 28th in Downtown Walnut Creek

1364 N. Main St, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for sending word that the olive oil shop and wine bar We Olive is closing in downtown Walnut Creek after eight years in business. Over the weekend everything in the store was 20% off.

From an email:

We have had an ongoing love story with olives and olive oil for over a decade now. It is what led us to open our little store in downtown Walnut Creek, and what propelled Christine to hone her skills and become part of a sensory panel involved with certifying olive oils.  It ultimately, led us to plant our own olive grove.  So, it is with some sadness, but with a firm eye toward the future, that we announce our retirement, and the closing of the We Olive Walnut Creek location. We have enjoyed sharing our passion for olive oil with our many loyal guests over the years and are thankful for the new and enduring friendships made during this time.

Our retirement sale starts today!

 We are going to celebrate by putting everything in the store on sale! Come in and enjoy deep discounts on everything in the store, while supplies last. Please hurry in!  We don’t want to miss the opportunity to thank you personally for supporting us on this amazing journey, while you stock up on all your favorite We Olive products!

Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

According to the latest Walnut Creek permit information it looks like a Peloton cycling showroom is planned for Broadway Plaza next to Amazon. For about $2,000 you get the carbon steel frame bike professionally assembled in your home as well as a 12 month subscription to their $39/month riding plan with live streaming classes and real time performance tracking. Check out their classes here.

From their website:

Founded in 2012, Peloton brought top talent together in its Silicon Alley headquarters to create a new concept in fitness. We loved cycling but had a hard time finding a workout that consistently fit our schedules, and our at-home workouts never felt quite up to par. So, we set out to create a world-class indoor cycling studio experience on your time, and in the comfort of your own home.

Wells Fargo Closes in Lafayette and will close in West Berkeley this March

Wells Fargo recently closed their location at Mt. Diablo Blvd. & Moraga Rd. in Lafayette and will also be closing in Moraga West Berkeley this March. According to this CNN Money article, the closures are, “a reflection of Americans’ preference for online and mobile banking these days.” Considering how convenient online banking (even check deposits) has become, I’m not at all surprised by this.

Update: The Moraga branch is not closing. The West Berkeley Business Center is closing in March.
