Issue: September 26, 2019

This week, SN&R presents our annual Best of Sacramento issue, recognizing winners in Food & Drink, Arts & Entertainment and other categories. But this year, there's a twist: We're writing only about those people and places picked by our readers as their favorites.

In News, Kris Hooks reports on a new effort in south Sacramento to boost black-owned businesses and Ben Irwin looks into complaints about a loophole in the city of Davis affordable home-buying program.

In this week's Garden column, Debbie Arrington says this year's backyard tomato crop depends on the variety planted.

In Voices, a local business leader urges City Hall to renew the Advance Peace program to stop gun violence, and I write about some of Sacramento's oldest businesses.
