Ever been to Weatherstone's on 21st between H and I? Thinking of Midtown makes me miss that place...BKM said:Welcome! Vacaville resident. Fairfield employee. Sacramento has some great older neighborhoods - I really like Midtown, Land Park, and McKinley Park. (don't care for the suburbs very much)
Yeah, Sacramento is one of those cities where the unincorporated suburbs are just not that nice. Even American River Parkway, while pleasant, jsut strikes me as really dull.2020planner said:yowza! Barbara Walters??? first, i am of the male persuasion. i will leave it at that.
yeah, I really like living in Sacramento. have lived in Land Park and downtown. I dont consider the suburbs Sac... that is the "other place"
Weatehrstones is pretty cool.nerudite said:Ever been to Weatherstone's on 21st between H and I? Thinking of Midtown makes me miss that place...
Oh yeah... New Helvetia! That was the FABULOUS place to hang out when I lived there. Great cheesecake and a nice patio outside. That's too bad that it is gone There used to be a place across the street from New Helvetia that made killer scones too. I have to get back to Sacto soon!BKM said:Weatehrstones is pretty cool.
The best caffe is now closed (landlord dispute)-New Helvetica was in an old brick firehouse on 19th street. I was way too old and square to patronize it, but they still had great coffee and food. They are missed.
There are certain words that get misspelled around here. "Ale" is one of them. A Laefest is an "Alefest" for Cyburbanites.2020planner said:"Laefest"? fill me in... i am a newbie
Maybe next time? Davis is changing a lot. There are at least five fairly major mixed use projects that have been completed downtown. I need to buy a digital camera!nerudite said:I don't think we'll be able to fit Sac in. I will be staying nearby in the evenings (Antioch), but I haven't seen my sister in 3 years and I doubt she'll let me leave her company much while I'm there, nor will my niece. Then from Antioch we are going to my parents' cabin outside of Bass Lake (near Oakhurst), so we end up going through Manteca or thereabouts. I have never driven between the two places directly, so I'm just making a wild guess.
Yeah... or *maybe* this time. It's so hard to tell how much free time we'll have, and where we will be. But that's the type of roadtrip I like!BKM said:Maybe next time? Davis is changing a lot.
