While the Chinese believe this to be the year of the snake, Sacramento's Mayor Kevin Johnson has dubbed 2013 the "Year of Food" for the Farm-to-Fork Capital of America. This is an exciting prospect for hostel-goers considering how many farm-fresh restaurants and farmers markets are just blocks from our Sacramento Hostel.
The Sacramento Hostel is proud to unveil their newly renovated kitchen!
The six-week project is now over and the freshly painted kitchen is ready for use. The design and construction was completed by artist and Victorian restoration specialist Artie Burger and his son Nathan. At age 18, Artie took on his first Victorian renovation in Eureka, California, completely restoring the interior and painting the exterior with an elaborate five-color design, using paint that he had mixed himself to ensure the proper hues. Since that time, Artie has completed renovations in Denver, San Diego, and Berkeley, sometimes incorporating his own stained glass artwork into his restorations.
