Danny O’Neil’s

Nearly everyone who passes by Alhambra and T notices Danny O’Neils. Currently, the sign only says his name, but it formerly pointed out the nature of his business, furniture restoration. I have always dug his homemade door and windows. I’ll bet they were something back in the day.

But blah, blah, blah right? We have all seen and wondered at Danny O’Neils, but my very favorite part actually takes place 1.5 blocks away on T under the freeway overpass.

It’s not the easiest thing to take a picture of the sidewalk. It reads “Danny O’Neil 1-12-52” if you can’t read it. Kind of sweet, no?

And in the Odds and Ends dept:

I rode around the alley behind Danny’s place to see if I could see more. I couldn’t, but I found this. I call it Kisses and Kale.

And if that isn’t enough Sacto, check out how trippy this town can be in Zach Hill’s latest vid.

Next MidMo Movie night is taking shape…

You know we fly kinda by the seat of our pants around here because we are all very busy folks, but I’m happy to say that there’s a new development with our next movie night, which is a showing of The Magic Christian on February 17th at The Verge. Matias Bombal is going to be hosting the screening and we’ll hopefully also be screening a short film that he recommended. If you don’t know who Matias Bombal is, smack yourself in the face. J.K., I’ll fill you in on more soon. Just be sure to pencil the showing in on your calendar.
