America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital

Look at this super-professional guy! Sure, my tie is a little messed up, but still the folks over at the Sac State Alumni magazine really made me look like I was someone moderately important. I even got to strike classic professional photo shoot poses that are usually reserved for someone running for office or selling houses. And why did […]

Gold Rush Days 2013

Labor Day weekend is a busy one in Sacramento with the Rainbow Festival, Chalk it Up, the 50th anniversary Greek Festival and the SacAnime Festival. If you’re a gay, Greek, chalk artist of comic book heroes you’re going to have a very busy weekend. And if you love history, cold beer and country music it’s […]

New Places: Tank House & Starlite

Even though I was experiencing excruciating lower back pain from a trivia night injury (I seized up getting off a bar stool), I powered through to enjoy a couple new places in town.

BLT Week: Update #4

Well, I just finished up a solid work week of BLT lunches with a trip to Old Ironsides. I’m not sure if Old I is on the official BLT Week list, but I know it makes one heck of a sandwich. The trick here is keeping it simple. I think this was my first BLT […]

BLT Week: Update #3

A BLT should be a lot of things: Fresh, crispy and delicious to name a few. But one thing a BLT should not be is $14. And if a BLT is going to be $14 then it had better be the best dang BLT ever. That’s what I was hoping for when the fourth day […]
