You guys I'm really bummed out and I need a pep talk. I am so depressed about what's going on in Sac right now. I should focus on the positive because I'm sure some good things will come out of it but I feel like we're right back to pre-recession luxury loft lounge living and big money trying to make the city a douchebag haven. Reading Sactown depresses me most of all, with their farm to fork this and their build condos for "well-heeled" residents that. Farm to Fork is driving me nuts, partially because it seems to be a successful venture for our creepy sex offender corrupt as fuck mayor. Nobody cares about his shell game financial dealings? No one remembers the behavior with the underage girls? And believe me I'm not one to judge about stuff like tweeting dick pics or whatever stupid thing, but taking advantage of multiple teenage girls should be enough to end a political career.
I know some older suburban people who got incensed when I was against an arena and started to tell me how great it would be for downtown. I would like to teleport these people to Midtown on a second Saturday at 2 am. And again, I'm not against people raging but I'm against people driving home especially when many of them are so wasted they are leaning and puking, etc.
Speaking of farm to fork I counted that phrase 37 times in this latest issue. It is not even the farm to fork issue, which was the last one. The Bee had it like 12 times on Friday.
Speaking of the Bee I was happy to read BAR's review of Kru. Well-deserved accolades. It's not flashy, but Billy Ngo just keeps chugging along churning out excellent sushi and salads (like his seaweed salad). I have never tried the uni panna cotta or the tea duck, which BAR wrote about, but I will now. I tend to just get chef's choice nigiri.
Also CM wrote a good, solid profile of Noah Zonca and avoided breathless hype. Very enjoyable and informative without being fawning or posturing.
