Sacramento has an affordable housing crisis. This is City Hall’s plan to finally solve it

Sacramento has failed for a decade to build affordable housing for low-income workers. In that time, rents in the capital region have soared, pushing some people to move out of state and forcing others to the streets. Now, the economic carnage of COVID-19 is placing others at risk of eviction.

Sacramento’s best brunch is at this 46-year-old downtown pub, readers say

You don’t survive 46 years in downtown Sacramento without doing something right. Fox & Goose Public House, an institution at the R Street Corridor’s mouth since 1975, has the Sacramento region’s best brunch, according to The Sacramento Bee’s readers. Founded by Denise and Bill Dalton and bought by longtime managers Jessa Berkey and Peter Monson in 2015, Fox & Goose has weathered downtown’s changes with an extensive omelet menu and full English breakfasts (also available as a vegetarian option). It’s currently open for patio dining, takeout or delivery via DoorDash at 1001 R St.

The Humble Burger

Sacramento has an impressive lineup of burger options during normal times. Willie’s Burgers, Flaming Grill Cafe, Burgers and Brew, Squeeze Inn and Pangaea Bier Cafe all boast some notable burgers. Each one, and many more that I haven’t named, brings its own unique take on the humble burger, and serves it up with an admirable lineup of beers and sides to boot. Locals can count ourselves lucky that the selection is still broad—and the quality is still high.

Sacramento City, County Government Divided In Struggle To Confront Homelessness Crisis

Sacramento City Hall and the Sacramento County Administration Center are separated by just one city block. But advocates for the area’s homeless residents say there’s a larger divide between city and county leaders when it comes to providing emergency shelter during cold winter months — one that was exposed last month when six unhoused people died in a powerful storm.
