Old Sacramento gears up for 'Gold Rush Days'

SACRAMENTO, CA - On News10 Good Morning Friday we stopped by Old Sacramento to check out what is certain to be a popular event this Labor Day weekend: Gold Rush Days.

Gold Rush Days goes from Sept. 3 through 5, and is your chance to step back in time and experience  Sacramento's past where the city began.

Marching down the dirt streets where the city first took shape in the 19th century, you will find dozens of period-actors and actresses, who look like they stepped right out of 1851. The actors will be playing out roles just as they happened back in the old days, including protests to build the levees, advocating women's rights, and of course gunfights.

Admission is free, but there will be fees for certain events, including train rides and underground tours. However, new this year, admission is free at five of the museums in Old Sacramento.

Firehouse Restaurant Announces Two New Hires

Firehouse Restaurant Announces Two New Hires

The Firehouse Restaurant recently announced two new additions to its Special Events team.

Bringing more than 20 years of management experience to his new position as special events director at The Firehouse, Frank Carney has worked for a number of restaurants throughout Northern California.  His work experience includes time as the manager of Rio City Café, general manager of Grapes Dining & Spirits, general manager of Paragary’s Bar & Oven and general manager of the High Steaks Steakhouse at Thunder Valley Casino Resort.  Most recently, Carney worked as the general manager and director of beverage for Lounge ON20 before joining The Firehouse team.

“I like to bring a hands-on approach to management and event planning, which I think fits perfectly with The Firehouse’s style,” Carney said.  “It’s all about the guest experience, and I am excited to be able to do what I love while showcasing the restaurant and Old Sacramento.”

Movies on a Big Screen Celebrates Celebrates 5 Years of Sacramento Microcinema

Movies on a Big Screen Celebrates Celebrates 5 Years of Sacramento Microcinema

SACRAMENTO - Sacramento's longest running weekly microcinema, Movies on a Big Screen (MOBS), will celebrate its fifth anniversary on September 11, 2011, at the historic Guild Theater in Oak Park.   In the world of microcinemas, where the funding is lean and the venues often temporary, five years of continuous operation is unusual.  With the economic challenges that arts organizations currently face nationally, its practically unheard of.

Since MOBS’ inception in 2006, when Robert McKeown and his wife DeeAnn Little conceived the idea of a locally operated screening series for alternative films made on shoestring budgets and with limited distribution, MOBS has been the region’s only continuously operating microcinema, showing hard-to-find fare not typically showcased at mainstream theaters, and rarely viewed theatrically outside of larger metropolitan areas such as San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“The films we show are the products of passion--they’re not
