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. And while I was disappointed that there was no oompa-like polka music to be heard, it paled in comparison to the pleasure I got from the delicious… Read more »

What’s popular isn’t always good.

I’m not misquoting Howard Cosell.  I’m waxing philosophical.  KCRA is running their local A List popularity contest again.

Singles: Not Doomed

      No Comments on Singles: Not Doomed

The other day I got a Google Alert about “dating in Sacramento.” The local Fox affiliate did a piece called Dating in Sacramento, Are Singles Doomed? Instantly, I was pissed off. It wasn’t because the folks at Fox40 didn’t ask a Sacramento dating blogger for her opinion after documenting years in the local dating scene…it was because of this thought… Read more »

It’s a three day weekend.  What are you going to do?  The weather is supposed to be beautiful, so I’m going to head up to El Dorado County to visit the Charles B. Mitchell winery.  But, it’s not just the weather that’s luring me up into the foothills of the Sierras.  It’s a Bottle Your Own Wine weekend! What’s that… Read more »
