We decided to try a new coffee shop this weekend. So new that he owners were still working things out with the interior space. They are related to Fluid Espresso bar downtown but located in sleepy south land park. I expect big things from these guys. This part of town needs a community space to hang out in and I think Barrio will deliver for the community. You can see more about Barrio here.
The coffee is good and the pastries are amazing. Trust me when I say try the rum bread pudding!!!!.
It's a large space but a little sparse and funky as Barrio gets it's balance. Some modern couches were just arriving as we were there and should help immensely.
Paul McCartney at Golden 1 Center
We paid, we stayed overnight, we saw Paul McCartney, and we made local history by being at Golden 1 center opening night. There was no carmageddon for us as we planned well ahead and booked a room. It was a very orderly couple of blocks walk away. No drama having to find parking.
Sir Paul did a bang up show. Bringing his Rockstar to the almost three hour show. Started a bit late but everyone was in good spirits including the staff and police welcoming everybody.
Only two downers. The speakers up by the huge scoreboard were not working so the sound sounded like it was coming from below us. Minor issue. The bigger issue were the seats in the upper bowl. I know we bought nosebleeds but wow I didn't know we got free vertigo with that purchase. Somewhat joking but the seats were packed in at what seemed to be a very vertical pitch. Walking the stairs caused some pain my knee but mostly felt anxiety over the feel I was tipping over constantly. They say it was built to code and it's not that bad compared with others but the way I felt and several others felt actually being there looking down and having a weird perspective was a bit unnerving. So do yourself a favor. pay for better tickets.
Fall returns to Sacramento
So fall started warmly in Sacramento. But as we say the clouds rolling in and that evil sun hiding behind them we decided to go outside. Not far away from us is Campus Commons and it's bridge to Sac State. So we decided to go for a stroll in cooler weather and tempt fate to be rained on. We enjoyed a day of Fall.
