It was originally going to be the home of a 53-story condominium tower, promised as the tallest residential highrise west of the Mississippi River. Construction had started in 2006, but now it’s quiet. The towers never got off the ground, and some of the completed foundation now sits exposed in the weeds of the dirt lot.
Out of nowhere, employees were sent an email informing them that the owner had unexpectedly turned off the burners for good in the restaurant that would typically be bustling with young professionals and couples.
The Tower Bridge was closed on Sunday as Sacramento wrapped up its first farm-to-fork festival.
From bursts of color in the evening sky to music, dance, rock climbing and ice, the final days of 2012 offer a little bit of everything to Sacramento residents and visitors. While ushering in the new year is often an adult-centric experience, these options offer fun and entertainment for families, teens and tots.
Sacramento Pride is one of the biggest events in the LGBT community and draws a number of locals and out-of-towners. While food and drink booths are available during the festival too, check out these fun spots to start the party early or continue the party after the festival is over.
Motorists who use the Tower Bridge may want to take an alternate route this week.
