Congratulations, Everyone! We’ll be seeing, er, sipping you soon~
What are the ’10 Most Fun, Affordable U.S. Cities’ according to an article by Vanessa Wong of Bloomberg Businessweek and featured on MSN this morning? I can’t tell you about the other nine for sure (because the cover shot of Sacramento got me a little excited), but I can tell you that yes, Sacramento made the list! Cited for its numerious museums, restaurants and bars, lively downtown areas and affordable home prices, Sacramento is an all-around pleasant city in which to live or visit. Many of us already know this, but at least she’s finally getting the recognition she deserves.
Way to go, hometown~
