As many of you know, I am a geek.  I stood in line and waited in the theater for two hours to watch The Dark Knight Rises with my niece. Three hours past midnight I was blown away! Mari & I were awed by how awesome the film was to watch - talking about it the entire car ride home. Got home to post on Facebook how awesome I thought the film was to find three news reports about the terrible shooting in Colorado. 

I was shocked! And now continue to be sickened to learn about the victims that were taken by a brutal uncaring person. And yet I am happy  because even though it was an absolute zoo last night (six theaters full of fans at the UA @ Arden in Sac), the crowd was just jazzed to see the movie. We all went home safely. My niece and I are safe! Safe from something that shouldn't even be on my radar to be worried about. 

My heart goes out to Colorado, to my fellow geeked-out fans! We should be happily raving about the film - not mourning the loss of fellow fans! It's a shame and senseless. My thoughts and prayers to the victims and their friends and families!

SactoMoFo 5: The Biggest Yet!

On July 21, prepare to have one of the meals of your life at the fifth SactoMoFo mobile food spectacular. We'll have thirty fantastic vendors from all over California - including some of the best from the Sacramento and San Francisco areas - as well as great live music, a beer garden, and lots of family-friendly entertainment. We'll be in thefarmers' market spot under the freeway at 6th and X in downtown Sacramento, directly across from Southside Park (which includes plenty of picnic spots and a terrific playground). Low- and high-resolution versions of the poster, to email or print, are available.
Parking is free with a school supplies or canned/packaged food donation to Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services, and $2 without a donation. There is also free street parking throughout the neighborhood - especially south of the venue. As always, there is no admission charge, but bring small bills and an empty belly to sample a little bit of everything from as many trucks as possible. And if you want to invite friends, family, colleagues and other area foodies, you can do that on the event page on Facebook - and don't forget to RSVP yourself. See you soon!
