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.

BLT Week: Update #1

Ok, so it turns out that Capital (or Capitol) Dime is not an official BLT Week participant as I had read on some other website that is apparently no more credible than mine. Also, it turns out, Capitol (or Capital) Dime doesn’t even have a BLT on the menu. However, the fine staff was completely unfazed […]

BLT Week

Bacon continues to ride a wave of unprecedented popularity and rightfully so. I mean, hipsters have made a lot of bad decisions over the years (i.e. skinny jeans, electronic music) but they’ve really made a good call on bacon (and mustaches). Bacon is everywhere and I have no problem with that. And it’s especially everywhere […]
