The blockbuster Our Street Night Market returns for its second year

With summer officially starting on Friday, June 21, celebrate the first weekend of the season with the ultimate block party and head out to the insanely popular Our Street Night Market on R Street this Saturday. Inspired by the buzzy night markets all throughout Asia that have spawned a mini trend for similar events in the U.S., Our Street drew a crowd of over 11,000 at its inaugural event last summer and more than 28,000 during its second outing last fall. The newest incarnation—which will take place from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.—will nearly double its previous footprint, stretching between 11th and 14th streets on the R Street Corridor and boasting more than 60 stalls. A “food court” between 13th and 14th streets will house the majority of the 40-plus street eats...

Here's when downtown spots like Solomon's Delicatessen, Kodaiko, KoJa Kitchen and more will open

Some of Sacramento's most eagerly anticipated dining destinations are opening their doors soon, all on a single transformative block next to the Golden 1 Center. The 700 Block of K Street—a mixed-use project known as The Hardin, between 7th and 8th streets—is a long-neglected stretch that began bubbling to life last year with notable openings like the Ruhstaller Beer taproom, the restaurant Tiger and and a new coffee and wine bar from the folks at Insight Coffee. So we decided to check in with the owners of the next round of eateries to find out when we can all expect to grab a fresh bagel with lox and schmear or a scoop (or three) of coffee-and-doughnuts ice cream. The news is good. You won't have to wait long.   ...

One-day home tour highlights six mid-century modern gems

Never was the suburban dream more elegantly executed than from the 1950s through the ’70s. And in 1959, local builder Streng Bros. Homes enlisted architect Carter Sparks to design a localized take on that suburban dream, a collaboration that lead to the construction of over 3,000 mid-century modern homes in the region. Fun fact: Artist Wayne Thiebaud married his wife Betty Jean in the backyard of Gregory Kondos' Sparks-designed home in East Sacramento. In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Streng-Sparks partnership, Sacramento Modern (SacMod) will highlight six of these shining specimens on Saturday, June 1 during its triannual home tour, this year titled 60 Years of Streng Bros. Homes. The self-guided tour will follow an 18-mile...

The inaugural Design Week Sacramento kicks off this week

The inaugural Design Week Sacramento kicks off this Saturday, May 11, offering an inclusive panoply of sales, workshops, lectures and tours geared toward whetting the palates—and palettes—of professional creators, novice makers and art appreciators alike. The idea was conceived by Amanda Sanchez, a freelance designer in Citrus Heights who found herself struggling to connect with other regional creatives. “I felt so separated from the design community in downtown,” says Sanchez. “But then I learned that a lot of other people felt that same way.” In March 2018, she pitched the event at CreativeMornings Sacramento, a monthly breakfast lecture series for regional professionals, and has since amassed a small army of over 50 volunteers...
