Hello SN&R reader!
A recent study by Men's Health magazine ranked Sacramento 18th on the list of the top 100 "most socially networked" cities in America. With this in mind, for this week's cover, we decided to offer a surprisingly real look at the town's hip new digital pulse. We sent a handful of SN&R writers out to hit the virtual streets of Sacramento to find our real "mayors," those Foursquare front-runners who never miss a "check-in." Elsewhere in the book, find all the news, opinion, music, film and food coverage you know you'll find inside each week's SN&R.
Each day, millions ‘check in’ on smartphone apps like Foursquare, where the top users are dubbed ‘mayors.’ Some mayors are strong, others just want to booze. All offer a real-time peek at privacy, partying and modern Sacramento.
