This week, SN&R’s staff writers tackle the big one: How do you know you’re really a Sacramentan?

Here’s a clue: If you graduated from high school in Roseville, boy, you are not a Sacramentan. But if you think a “cool summer day” is 99 degrees, you don’t think MARRS is a misspelling of the name of the fourth rock from the sun, and you’ve got a favorite Star Trek band, you might really be from Sacramento.

Also this week: That weird laugh at the beginning of surf classic “Wipe Out”? That’s a guy from Sacramento. Stephanie Rodriguez finds out more. And Greg Lucas reviews Hoppy Brewing Company; Kel Munger reviews Altar Boyz; and Jim Lane reviews Our Family Wedding.
