Issue: August 13, 2009

If two is company and three is a crowd, then you know that this weekend’s Third Saturday will be straight-up slam-packed with local artists, fashionistas, craft vendors and musicians. That’s right: There’s a new Saturday in town, so don’t miss SN&R’s creative block party this August 15 from 4-9pm at 10th and K streets. It’s free! Be there.

In other news: Did you vote in SN&R’s Best of Sac 2009 yet? No?!? Dudes and dudettes: Get to the online ballot now, take five minutes to vote and be entered to win cool prizes, like a friggin’ scooter from The Scoot Shop.

Oh, and there’s a great new SN&R issue out today, too, featuring: 1) freelancer Sasha Abramsky’s excellent summer road trip, 2) Rachel Leibrock’s check-up with Cake singer-songwriter John McCrae, 3) R.V. Scheide on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s penchant for secrecy, 4) Nick Miller’s look at Sacto’s first "dance metal" band.

Thinks Free!
