Last night I read the cover story on Kevin Johson in Sactown mag and I would like to clear my throat and make this announcement...I am formally endorsing Heather Fargo for mayor. Jeez, KJ is scary as hell. I'd rather have a known evil.
I have to say that I enjoyed reading the Sactown a lot, and it took me almost 40 minutes to get through the whole thing. And that comes on the heels of last months issue with the really good Jackie Greene article. I still hate the fawning letters from d-bags, but if that' s the kind of letters they get... I loved that spread with all the photos of people who got married on Valentine's Day at City Hall. That's fluff, for sure, but it's the good kind of fun, eye candy fluff, not the cringey kind of fluff like "six degrees of sacto" or "off the menu". I liked the article on the local newscaster who helped found the m.i.n.d institute, and I totally agree with their last page about how we need a top-floor restaurant. I like that last page feature in general. They often have good ideas.
The KJ article had no objectivity whatsoever and it's super obvious that's who they're endorsing, but given their vision for Sac that's no surprise. The food coverage this month seems like even more of an afterthought. It's so far back in the mag that I started to think they had eliminated it, and Lark Park covers sweets for the second month in a row.
Liv Moe's show is super good. Make sure you stop by Sac State to check it out. Those of you familiar with mikermike's old chair will be amused to see it woven with synthetic hair looking like some kind of shlumping half-alive creature. Is shlump even a word? It is now, I guess.
Oh yeah, Old Soul is having their bbq thingy again at the Weatherstone this friday. You probably want to show up close to 5 to get food, I'm sure it will sell out again.
