David and Anna Sobon’s Vegas Glam Wedding

A veritable who’s who of Sacramento’s business, philanthropic and arts communities came together to celebrate the marriage of David and Anna Sobon in grand style. The spectacular “Vegas Glam” wedding featured an Elvis officiating the nuptials, and the finest food, brew (Hoppy), wine (Sobon Estate), décor and entertainment one could possible hope for. Congrats to the happy bride and groom.

A Little Bit of Everything

Delightful global fusion in a faceless Elk Grove bistro

Todo un poco means “a little bit of everything,” and that’s exactly how co-owner Marie Mertz describes her strategy. She runs the bistro’s operations, cooks, builds menus, chooses the daily specials, buys fresh produce, trains staff, handles community relations and hand-selects her wines. She’s proud of being in business for so many years, but “who’s counting when you’re having fun?” she says.

Go Brew Yourself

Video: How to make homemade beer away from home

The whole DIY video tutorial trend might be good if you want to concoct a hair conditioner with condiments, practice putting on lipstick with crayons or make pencils float in midair. But if you’re trying to brew your own beer at home, you’re going to need a bit more than a six-minute YouTube clip.
