Sad to see it close down, but it's nice (for a change) to read about a restaurant closure that is not financially motivated. Thanks, B
A trip to feast on Grio is now in my immediate future. Bummer to see them shutter. The Porch sounds intriguing though...
Live music venue?
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Yoserna1. We have updated the article to reflect this information!
MidtownSquinter, thank you for the comments regarding my wordsmithing. Shalini's maiden voyage on Sac Press is perfectly representative of the core of our mission, which is to provide community members a platform to deliver messages that they deem relevant to those who live in the greater Sacramento area. We pride ourselves in hosting a forum where both experienced reporters and first-time journalists can play on the same field and make their voices equally heard. For a first-time writer to post a story that has garnered 86 responses (and counting) from community members is phenomenal. I can't wait to read her next post, and I also can't wait to see who our next first-time contributor will be that sparks a similarly inspired discussion.
While Midtown and Roseville/Rocklin (it's funny that they've been combined into one city herein) may be in different counties, it's a disservice to mentally separate the two. Roseville/Rocklin as well as other Placer County towns (Auburn, Lincoln, etc.) are an integral part of the greater region's culture too; that's why Sac Press covers Placer Co. as well as Sac, Yolo and ElDo. I work with high school students at a public school in Rocklin, and the unfortunate reality is that this us-and-them mentality is becoming very palpable amongst high school aged youth as well. Many of them consider them Downtown/Midtown to be a "scary" place to come. Many of them would go so far as to avoid shows at Luigi's Fungarden or even Dance Gavin Dance night at Concert in the Park because of that perceived fear. It's fine to have barstool conversations about the real or perceived lifestyle differences between the thrift store porkpie and the $125 straight-bill designer lid , but when it starts permeating to youth who buy into the perceptions before experiencing the reality, we've got a problem...
Or to Nashville
This sounds ridiculously fun!
Great stuff Mark, thank you for posting!
Agreed...when it comes right down to it, really no different than a "Top 5 Cocktails in Midtown" type story
Bring back Nevada Backwards, too! (OK, now I'm just being greedy!)
If that is true, then it affects approximately 950 people, which would mean that over half of those affected showed up to the meeting to represent themselves, and just over 10% of those affected spoke publicly on the issue. That's pretty solid representation by the citizens of Sactown!
Viva Los RioGatos!
Hmmm...what's French for "redistricting...?"
Good comparison to a potential Bumbershoot, but unfortunately to pull the SMF more toward that level, you're talking about a pretty major demographic shift, and it's going to take several years for that to happen. With some creative scheduling it could be done, a la Paper Bird and Not an Airplane down in the smaller venues alongside the Dixie Jazz Allstars, and Old Crow Medicine Show co-headlining with Tom Rigney and Flambeau. I will have to admit that I've never thought of the festival as appealing to my generation outside of "let's cruise Old Sac and see what we can hear for free;" maybe this could be a fresh start
Well said, Mary!
Awesome shots as always, Steven...some intense eyes in this lot!
Awesome article, Elaine!
Would that be the dive bar equivalent of a culture jam, Ben?
Great stuff, Amabelle!
