Historic Old City Cemetery Tour -  "Saloons & Eateries"

The Old City Cemetery Committee’s tour focuses on some of the old time Bars and Restaurants in Sacramento.

 Whether they were stinking tents set up on poles, or fancy buildings with imported marble, you could get almost anything you wanted at Sacramento’s old time Bar and Restaurants, just as long as you were willing and able to pay the price. Join us as we tour Sacramento’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” of yesteryear. The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. Tours are free; however, donations are appreciated and benefit cemetery preservation. For more information, call 916-448-0811 or 916-264-7839.

Foodies show up at California State Fair

Foodies show up at California State Fair

SACRAMENTO, CA - High calorie counts are not enough to keep people away from fair food.

The California State Fair is all about fun, but it's also about food for many.

"Oh yeah! Every year we come for the food, every year," Jerry Meza said. "We've been coming for 12 years!"

Funnel cakes, footlongs and French fries put a smile on foodies' faces, both big and small.

"I'm starting off with the ceviche, then I'm going to build my way up to the heavy cholesterol and fried things," said a man from San Diego.

Although California restaurants are required to post health information on their menus, food vendors in places like the state fair are not.

"Our menu labeling laws that went into affect a few years ago were for our fixed-facility chain restaurants and they did not affect the temporary booths such as these," Sacramento County Supervising Environmental Specialist Zarha Ruiz said.
