There’s an effort underway in Saratoga to honor Betty and Willys Peck with a bench in Blaney Plaza featuring life-size sculptures of the couple. It’s a wonderful way to commemorate the Pecks’ contributions to the town for more than five decades. Willys, who died in 2013, had a long career as a copy editor at the Mercury News, but he was best known in Saratoga as a historian who was passionate about preserving the town’s history. Betty, who is now 95, was a longtime kindergarten teacher and the founder of the Saratoga Community Garden.

The transformed Townie opened in July, with a zinc-topped bar anchoring the far wall, cocktail tables, communal tables and regular four-tops for dining, and a comfortably casual vibe. This is the place to watch a game, drop by after work — or exams — to knock back a beer or grab a bite with the family, confident that no one will hear junior’s yowls. It’s a boisterous setting, with sound bouncing madly off all those hard surfaces. And the service, which is not as polished as one might hope for, has the same laid-back, celebratory vibe.
