Big Hearts, Big Pies

Love Pizza? There’s a fantastic way to indulge in your love all things pie and help a great cause.

The new California Pizza Kitchen at 16th and K is donating today’s sales to the wonderful people behind the magic at Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Check out the press release:

Following CPK’s tradition of giving back to the communities in which it operates, the new CPK restaurant will donate 100% of all dine-in pizza sales during regular business hours on Tuesday, May 26, 2009, to the Sacramento chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters.

By the way, I’m a sucker for the Thai Chicken Pizza at CPK. Mozzarella cheese and a spicy peanut sauce add up to a delightful, tangy flavor combination. Who knew?

What’s your favorite?

Whither thou goest

The state of things here in Sactown: brace yourselves for winter.

A few weeks ago, a shop on my downtown walk was desparately fighting to stay open. The name of the place: Tenacity Gifts. But even with a name like that, there wasn’t enough. Tenacity, that is. So, one day they closed. The day after they closed, there was a woman sleeping under the glass store window. She didn’t appear to be the “typical” homeless person, as she had a clean, new sleeping bag, and her hair appeared to be clean. The thought occurred to me that she might have been the owner, saying goodbye. But probably not.

Even though the store didn’t make it, I hope we all have the tenacity needed to hang on in the weeks ahead!
