The old gas station on the corner of Alhambra Boulevard and T Street is scheduled to open next week as Tako Korean BBQ, selling tacos and burritos with a Korean flair. “It’s really big in L.A., and we wanted to bring the concept up here,” co-owner Alex Won said Monday. “We’ll have beef, pork and chicken with a Korean sauce and slaw on tortillas.” The concept is similar to GoGi’s Korean Barbecue, which opened inside Cafeteria 15L last year. Details are still being finalized, but the tacos and burritos will likely be sold in combo plates with rice, and salads will be available. Won said diners should expect to pay between $6 and $8 for lunch. Also planned for the space is a selection of
The Humor Times and Access Sacramento will be celebrating their anniversaries this Friday by hosting a comedy and variety show. April 22 marks 20 years for the subscription based political comedic magazine, Humor Times and 25 years for Access Sacramento, the community-operated TV, Radio and Internet program.

New bike lanes could be added to 65th Street if the city receives enough cash from the state. The City Council is expected to approve the application for funding to install bicycle lanes on 65th Street between Fourth Avenue and Folsom Boulevard.

California would pay most of the project’s costs if it selects the city’s application for the state’s Bicycle Transportation Account grant program. The city would pay 10 percent of the cost from revenues from Measure A, a local half-cent sales tax applied to street projects, according to E
These photos were taken with an iPhone in the Elmhurst area (53rd street, S street, T street). Most of the homes had arches on the sidewalks made of PVC pipe and strung with lights. My favorite house of the block was the one with the snorkeling Santa. This is the house with the snorkeling Santa! Santa lives in a Yellow Submarine. A jellyfish, maybe? A Christmas tree Snowman.
In a sign of uncertain economic times, a developer building in Sacramento is moving forward slowly with one housing project while another remains stalled. Kevin Noell of San Diego-based Metro Nova Development has jump-started construction of four more brownstone-style homes at Tapestri Square, T and 20th streets, by offering reduced prices and more amenities. But work remains on-hold to develop his other Sacramento project – the old Crystal Cream & Butter Co. site, located downtown at 1013 D St., into a mixed-use redevelopment dubbed the Creamery. Tapestri Square plans call for 58 energy-efficient, single-family detached homes built to resemble urban row houses on an entire block. Fourt
