Sacramento has a new Empress

In what must be the most anticipated restaurant opening in a decade, Empress Tavern is finally ready to open. After months and months of delays and waiting, we finally get to see what took so long. And boy is it worth it.

Togo’s is now in Midtown!

Togo’s is now in Midtown!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good sandwich. Since Togo’s has now opened a location in midtown, I’ve even been motivated enough to get in the car during work hours to head over there to get a sammy. And, anyone who knows me also knows that I really like to win free stuff.
