Thank you for your no vote.
The first week or so that they were open they didn't have sandwiches at night. Now they do. I recommend the roasted pork sandwich.
Marcos Breton has got this beat covered. An empty arena in Natomas would have no effect on my image and self esteem. I have plenty of fun (yes, I remember that word) that is not related to giant arenas. I'm am so tired or hearing people state that it's a fact that we need an arena. It's not a fact, it's an opinion, and I disagree.
Sorry to be a brat, but that was quite an uneven meal. The texture of the poached egg on the salad was rather repulsive. Loved the tongue pastrami-exceptional! My wild boar entree was quite spongy and tasteless. I told the server and she replied, "that's wild game, I guess." Also, the cake was wayyyyyy too cinnamon-y for my tastes. I'm curious to know what other attendees thought.
That is an outrageous comment. Please don't lower the level of discourse on SacPress to that of the Bee.
Great interview! I'm sure it wasn't the typical interview that he gets time after time. I bet he appreciated that.
That white Yeti-like thing was a skookum.
Everyone knows that Rick's Uptown smells like broasted chicken, not "old fish and piss". Also, most supermarkets on Stockton just smell like fish (as opposed to "old fish") and decidedly do not smell like piss.
We are not the only city to protest a proposed plant. Most recently, McCloud, California rejected a plant, and Flagstaff did as well. Nestle usually faces opposition, so they shop their plant around until they find a city that is gullible enough to let them take a huge quantity of their water practically for free. I'm sure that the towns that have managed to keep Nestle out have not seen other businesses flee the area.
A very informative book called "Traffic" by Tom Vanderbilt-which was mostly about car traffic-discussed some biking issues. His working theory (which agrees with cognitive psychology research), is that people see what they expect to see. When there aren't many bikes or pedestrians on the road, drivers don't expect and aren't particularly conscious of them. So, the more bikes we get on the road, the better. I was struck by how courteous drivers in Portland are, to bikers and walkers, and I think that part of it is they're just used to sharing the road.
The city clerk is Shirley Concolino.

I was tricked into signing the strong mayor petition, by someone who told me that it was to hold elections for the city budget administration. I don't like to sign petitions but this guy twisted my arm. I believe that the man then pretended I needed to sign two separate things just for that (no mention of the mayor was made), and in reality had me sign the strong mayor petition.
If this has happened to you and you want your name taken off the petition, put it in writing and send it to the city clerk ASAP.
Great article. Thank you.
