The Taste of East Sac 2018

The Taste of East Sac 2018

Posted by on Jul 11, 2018 in East Sac, Events, Taste of East Sac | 0 comments

The Taste of East Sac, one of my favorite events of the year, is this weekend on Saturday July 14th! This is the 10th year of the event. I’ve gone every year for the past 5 years and it just keeps getting better and better.  More than 40 local restaurants, breweries and wineries will be offering samples of the delicious treats that they serve up in their local establishments and it will be more than enough food and drink for everyone. There will be music, a silent auction and over 500 of your neighbors and friends mingling at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church located at 600 Alhambra Boulevard right across from McKinley Library. The event starts at 6:00 and ends at 9:00 so don’t be late for this...

East Sac 4th of July Parade 2018

East Sac 4th of July Parade 2018

Posted by on Jun 28, 2018 in 4th of July, East Sac, Events, Fab 40's | 0 comments

The weather has heated up and summer is almost here! We’re just a week away from the biggest neighborhood block party of the year.  The East Sac 4th of July parade is a great way to start off your summer celebrations. Come and hang out with hundreds of neighbors and see all the amazing ways that people show their festive red, white and blue spirits.  Unless things have changed from all of the past years, the parade will start at 11:00 on 41st Street just south of J Street. The block will be packed all the way down to M Street and probably even half way down the next block.  Once the parade starts it will do a big loop onto J Street, down 42nd Street, around Folsom Boulevard and then finish where it started on 41st Street. Then it will breakout into a large block party with live bands and people milling in the streets and visiting with their neighbors. When we call it a parade what we really mean is a bunch of festive neighbors ambling along together and a few people sitting on the sidewalks or front lawns watching the masses of revealers doing the slowest walk around the block as possible.  Do as we do after the morning parade and go have a great block party and get to know your neighbors better or make your way to Cal Expo in the evening (or somewhere with a good view of the sky above Cal Expo) and enjoy the fireworks show.  I love the community that we have here in East Sac and knowing more of my neighbors here than I have in all of my pervious homes combined. Given that I’m never leaving East Sac or my home now that I’ve discovered them, the number of neighbors I know will continue to grow over the years due to great events like this.  Here are some pictures from last year taking by the incredibly talented Carlos Castille of http://www.castillephotography.com! ...

Posted by on Jun 7, 2018 in Bertha Henschel Park, East Portal Park, East Sac, Events, Glenn Hall Park, McKinley Park, Pops in the Park | 0 comments

Apparently business has been good for me this year because it has kept me distracted from my blog and I’ve missed the first Pops in the Park of 2018! June 2nd was in East Portal Park with IdealTeam. June 9th will be in Bertha Henschel Park with AKA Live. June 16th will be in McKinley Park featuring Jessica Malone June 23rd will finish out the series at Glen Hall Park with The Count. All of the concerts begin at 6:00pm and as usual, there is free bike valet parking if you don’t want to fight for a parking space and don’t live close enough to walk in. I hope to see a lot of my neighbors when I make it out for some Pops in the Park fun this...

C Street and Elvas Curve is Changing

C Street and Elvas Curve is Changing

Posted by on Feb 6, 2018 in East Sac | 1 comment

Do you like taking the C Street to Elvas loop around the north end of East Sac to zip thought the neighborhood? It will take a little longer in the future when you come to a full stop after the intersection get reworked. After too many accidents where drivers didn’t make the full turn and ended up in a neighbors yard, the city has decided to change this from a curve to a full stop intersection there where Lanatt Street comes off of the C Street and Elvas change over. They will start on this work at the end of February so watch for the change and be prepared to...

Sutter Park Neighborhood Updates!

Sutter Park Neighborhood Updates!

Posted by on Feb 1, 2018 in East Sac, Sutter Park | 28 comments

After a long wait we finally have some updates to share on the Sutter Park Neighborhood progress! The developer has been working on the utilities and the other infrastructure and over the next couple months you will see the neighborhood start to take shape with all of the new roads getting completed. The developer plans on marketing to prospective builders in March. There will be multiple builders within the development but it looks like each builder will be taking on building 30-40 homes. This means that we won’t be seeing individual lots sold to owners or small scale builders building out just a few lots. Instead it will be highly experienced builders who can commit to the purchase and development of 30 plus homes. The land developer plans on having lots completed and ready for the builders to start work in September. We should see the first houses starting construction this Fall and I think the first homes will be completed and ready to move into early next year. I’ll should be able to post information and updates more regularly in the coming...

East Sacramento Lady Bird Pride

East Sacramento Lady Bird Pride

Posted by on Jan 25, 2018 in East Sac, Fab 40's, McKinley Park, Sacramento | 0 comments

  Exploring Sacramento through Lady Bird written by our very own Greta Gerwig, was like wrapping yourself in a warm blanket of Sacramento familiarities and love. It’s an absolute pleasure living and working in California’s capital city but getting to see this love letter to Sacramento gives me such pride. This now iconic coming-of-age story is not only getting Sacramento recognized but Lady Bird has achieved great success even winning Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes. Now with 5 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay and Best Director (the first female director nominated for an Academy Award since The Hurt Locker eight years ago) the movie has really taken flight and gone from a small Indie film to a one of the most notable films of the year. Sacramento is like living in a big city with a small-town feel. Let me share with you some of my very own favorite East Sac spots featured in the film. Rose Garden at McKinley Park – 3255 H St, Sacramento, CA 95816 Located in Historic McKinley Park, the McKinley Rose Garden sprawls over 1.5 acres and is the largest of Sacramento’s rose gardens. Rent the garden for your wedding, memorial or special event, or come enjoy its colorful and peaceful beauty. Living just two blocks away from McKinley Park, my wife and I often start our day with a walk around the park before starting work. St. Francis High School – 5900 Elvas Ave, Sacramento, CA 95819 The highly sought after St. Francis school serving students from more than 120 different schools and 90 zip codes. Offering 28 Honors and AP classes and most years seeing 100% of our graduates go on to college or study abroad after graduation. Fabulous 40s neighborhood – 38th-47th, between J Street and Folsom Blvd. This is a spectacular section of large immaculate homes in a tree-lined neighborhood of East Sacramento and home of the big blue house in the film. Club Raven – 3246 J St, Sacramento, CA 95816 Club Raven has been a neighborhood destination for 70 years. Stop by this friendly bar and grab a drink with your new friends. Pasty Shack – 4746 J St, Sacramento, CA 95819 In business since 1952, the Pasty Shack serves variations of the Cornish pasty. El Dorado Savings – 4768 J St, Sacramento, CA 95819 Another small cameo in the film right next door to the Pasty Shack Cookie’s Drive In – 5640 H St Sacramento, CA 95819 For some of the best burgers in town, the choice is easy but which burger to have there is a tough choice. They have all of the regular burger choices plus buffalo, ostrich and more. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Cookie’s Drive In is a great dining option for any time of day. Other great locations...
