Issue: September 22, 2011

Dear SN&R reader!

This year's Best of Sacramento issue celebrates our city's finest citizens.

In Arts&Culture, SN&R shines the spotlight on a rock-star painter, a literary performer, and the mistress of the Sacramento Ballet.

In Food&Drink, meet an artisanal sausage-maker, an award-winning bartender, and the man behind the best street tacos in town.

Goods&Services will be where you get the goods on the best comic book dealer, the most compassionate vegan vendors, and the Mimimoto

bloggers who keep your home looking sharp.

You can upgrade your workout with a punk-rock aerobics instructor, a mixed martial arts champion, a senior citizen yoga guru and the fastest bike guide in the city in Sports&Recreation.

Go all Green&Natural, from chickens in the backyard to international water law, with local green heroes who care for our city and our planet.

In Sex&Love, you'll feel the attraction with a sultry burlesque dancer, a blind Playboy photographer, and a dating guru for the over-50 crowd.

All that and more in our annual Best of Sacramento issue!
