Sacramento's Rock & Radio Museum seeks new home

They say rock and roll never forgets. Dennis Newhall—who ran midtown’s Sacramento Rock & Radio Museum from 2002 until it closed its doors in January 2017—is hoping this is true. The 3,000-square-foot museum—which was originally located at the Ray Nakamoto Productions recording studio at 20th and I streets and moved next door to Tucker Media Group in 2011—was open one night a month during midtown’s Second Saturday events and chronicled the Sacramento region's rock music scene from 1957 to present day, with over 3,500 artifacts, like posters, handbills, ticket stubs, T-shirts, rock radio charts and memorabilia from the bands and musicians who played here, including local stars like Jackie Greene and international sensations like Ozzy...

Zip-line, rock climb and sip craft beer at new outdoor adventure park

This scene may conjure thoughts of a resort in Costa Rica or another exotic locale, but it also describes a new five-and-a-half-acre outdoor theme park in Rocklin. Quarry Park Adventures, set to open on Memorial Day weekend, will feature attractions like a three-level aerial ropes course, rock climbing stations and 2,800 feet of zip lines that can reach speeds of over 30 miles per hour.
