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...

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...

The Taste of East Sacramento 2017

Posted by on Jun 19, 2017 in East Sac, Events, McKinley Park, Restaurant, Taste of East Sac | 0 comments

We are just a month away from one of my favorite events of the year. This years Taste of East Sacramento 2017 will be the 9th year that the East Sac chamber has hosted this event. We’ve grown the event in leaps and bounds over the last several years, so much so that we’ve out grown our last two venues. This year it will be hosted in the brand new Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church at 616 Alhambra Blvd, right across from McKinley Library. It will start at 6:00 and run till 9:00 on Saturday July 22nd. As usual, there will be all of our favorite East Sac restaurants, breweries and wine from local vineyards as well as some of the newer providers of great tastes to our neighborhood. I’m going to get my tickets before the early bird pricing ends and I hope to see so many of my friends and neighbors at the event....
