Booze Confusion

      6 Comments on Booze Confusion

Previously in a blog post or two, I’ve written about the random laws various states have with regard to alcohol. In California, it’s fairly liberal, I guess. You can buy hard liquor, wine, and beer in grocery stores. Heck, Target even has wine and beer. But, there are only so many liquor licenses to go around. The state does control… Read more »

Mixing it up with some Sacramento Bloggers

You would think that a beer crazy town like Sacramento would have a plethora of German themed bars or beirhalls if you will. As far as I know, LowBrau is the only one.

While I am currently filled with the holiday spirit, I do not listen to Christmas music on a non-stop loop.  I only listen to it when doing holiday oriented activities like wrapping gifts or baking cookies.  Sometimes when my family sits down to play cards, we will have it on in the background.  OK, I admit to listing to a… Read more »

We be clubbin’

Full disclosure: I’m not now nor have I ever really been into the club scene.  Even back in my 20s, I’m not sure what I was really doing at the Rage.  If you’ve lived in Sacramento for a decade or so, you probably know what I’m talking about.  But, when the Sacramento Bloggers had a gathering at the Reunion Nightclub… Read more »
