We spotted this gentlemen riding his Scooter at the grocery store this morning. He said he gets around all over town and even drove it to Mack Road one day. His wife rides in it with him. He is excited that West Sacramento is working on more bike friendly lanes on our main drags.

This full suspension electric two person scooter will take two of you almost anywhere a car can go and then some: down the lane, out to the barn, to the Doc's, the store, the church, or wherever the spirit moves you.

These hungry fire fighters made a quick stop by the SactoMoFo's food truck event in Lowe's parking lot last night on their way back to their home station house on Sacramento Avenue. They were called to the West Side to assist in putting out two grass fires in the Southport area. The Fire and Police personnel in West Sacramento are just the best and we really appreciate their service in protecting our community.

We drove by the new Third Strike Cafe located at 630 3rd Street. I shot this photo from the street as we drove by this morning, but it looks like it will be a cafe with a cool beer garden, and it is just a short walk from Raley Field.
This update comes from Janice Orr:
"I just wanted to thank you for posting the photo of the new Third Strike Cafe. It was my grandparents home and my dad has been working tirelessly to transform it into a coffee shop and plans to offer homemade smoked meats and rice dishes (family recipes) for the lunch crowd or hungry River Cats fans. Lots of blood, sweat and tears went into the place and seeing your blog post brought a happy tear to my eye. I live in St. Louis, MO, so have not been home to see the coffee shop since last summer. I'm planning a trip this June and can't wait to see it finally finished. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy the newest addition to the neighborhood!"
