Best Sacramento ambassador: Steve Vanoni
Best of Sacramento 2013 writer’s pick
The man known by many simply as “Vanoni” has been living in Tallinn, Estonia, for years now. But once every so often, he pops back to Sac (looking the same as he has forever), and we get to find out what he's been up to in the land of saunas and wife-carrying. He is building art boats in Finland, acting in films and participating in musical performances—much like what he has done here. He has even been on the cover of Eesti Ekspress, the country's politically independent weekly paper. I hope they take good care of our Sacramento treasure (or at least the beautiful Estonian women do!).
