Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 77: BevMo Opens in Midtown

A few months ago, I had noticed that The Beat music store on the corner of J & 17th Street had closed, and eventually, a sign appeared announcing that a new BevMo would be opening soon.  We've been wondering when the store would be ready, and we learned that the grand opening was this weekend.  Mr. E found a coupon in the weekly alternative paper, the Sacramento News & Review, and we decided to include this stop among our errands this afternoon to pick up some agave nectar, Mike's Light Hard Lemonade, and several other beverages.

It's great that the commercial real estate space didn't remain vacant for too long, and we're glad to have a BevMo in closer proximity - and accessible by bicycle!  Previously, the closest location was in Natomas, which isn't that far in terms of mileage but definitely requires a car trip.

It's a bit hard to see in the small photo above, but that object to the far right is actually a bicycle rack in the shape of a wine bottle.  Several other bike racks in artistic and beverage-related themes continue along the front of the store, which adds an interesting decorative touch and also serves the practical purpose of meeting the needs of Midtown and Downtown folk, who frequently prefer bikes to cars when traversing the grid.
