Nice piece. Well, except for the Guy Fieri quote. That was cringeworthy. You forgot the Zebra. Nothing fancy about their patio, but the $1.75 drafts from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm can cure a lot of ills.
Dude. You absolutely crushed this one Aaron. Home run, right into McCovey Cove. Damn it.
At least it wasn't in Midtown.
A real bummer. I loved that place.
Have you seen the drivel that passes for fortunes these days? Sometimes you get a lecture, sometimes a statement of fact, sometimes just nonsense. I got one for you: "Your fortune would have sucked anyways, you're better off".
Way to step it up til 2:00 AM, that extra hour makes all the difference. Lounge on 20 is gonzo? Please tell me that it's being replaced by another Ultra-lounge. Or a second Spaghetti Factory. You can never have too many.
I always said that Capital Dawg was overpriced. Now they're record breakingly overpriced. Kudos. Great piece Kati, I really enjoyed it.
Stoked for Sogard. Carter and Taylor got all the ink, Sogard just did work. A's fans are gonna love him.
Dick move dude. NoWay Jose is the bacon of bands.
Lalo's is the only Mexican place in Sac that I miss. They do great work.
With regards to "Restaurant Thir13en." Spelling words with numbers replacing letters: Not witty, not cool, not edgy. Super, super lame. M8trix and Se7en and durpa durpa durpa doo.
Hey, that's great if you have a new celebrity chef or a James Beard award-winner opening a new farm-to-table communal-organic post-modern-continental-fusion restaurant that gets critics all atwitter, but I think the true test of a city's culinary scene is the quality of the more accessible foods. How good are your ethnic hole-in-the-walls, deli's, burger joints et cetera? In that regard Sacto is a mixed bag, but more good than bad. I never found any Chinese food I loved or very good Mexican, but that can be said of 99% of the nation. Sac is blessed with outstanding Vietnamese and Thai, as well as the aforementioned burgers. You can find great breakfasts without too much trouble, and I'd throw a hobo from a moving train for a Corti Bros out here in Nashville. Also, the farmers market situation is as good as you'll find any where. It's been said before, but the hand-wringing about "Is Sac a Cow town or a world class city" is a real waste of time and energy. Sacramento is rad but with plenty of issues, not the least of which is an inferiority complex. .
I miss Harlow's.
When I moved to Sacramento two years ago this month, the food truck laws were so Draconian that it inspired me to write a manifesto regarding the matter my first week in town. (http://sacramentopress.com/headline/22621/First_they_came_for_the_taco_trucks_and_I_did_not_speak_out)
Now we have a "Food Truck" Section in the SacPress.
I see a few of my favorites, but not nearly enough Chea. Looks like a blast.
too, to, two. Two times you used the word "to" when you meant the word "too". That's two times too many.
Frenchmen FTW, without a doubt. So much music coming through Sacoftomatoes and it's environs this year. Rad.
Buried lede: the general manager refers to himself as "7evin", and you acknowledged it in print. How could you type that with a straight face? :)
