V is for Valentine and Vegan

By Danielle Carlson, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. In Finland, Valentine’s Day is called Ystävänpäivä which translates into “friend’s day.” As the name indicates, this day is more about remembering all your friends, not only your loved ones.  In some Latin American countries Valentine’s Day is known as “Día del Amor y […]

One More Reason to Overindulge

By Becky Larson, The week after the New Year can be a little depressing.

The Bright Red Hope: New Gyro Food Stand Opens at McKinley Park

By Jimmy Spencer, Editor I love how midtown’s dining community acts like a middle school class. Each time a new kid enters the fray, curiosity takes over and, like nosey young teens, everyone wants to get to know this newbie. I first started seeing this new kid on my routine drive past McKinley Park. […]

I’m Hot for Hot Italian

By Bethany Hill, One of my absolute favorite spots in Midtown is Hot Italian. It is without a doubt my most desired Italian restaurant in Sacramento.
