Neighborhood Welcomes Temple Coffeehouse

July 21, 2009

Dozens of residents from the neighborhood and around Sacramento showed up at the new Temple Fine Coffee and Tea, located at 2829 S Street, on the evening of July 18 for a Grand Opening celebration.

Temple Fine Coffee and Tea, whose main location is at 1014 10th Street (between J and K) in downtown Sacramento, opened its new location in our neighborhood on June 29. Located in a restored brick building, the new Temple location is spacious and comfortable inside, and offers a wide variety of specialty and organic coffees and teas.

At the July 18 event, visitors crowded into the new location to enjoy fresh drinks, and to listen to live music from the delightful flute-and-guitar duo, Cathie Apple and Georgie England. (Please correct me if I’ve got the names spelled wrong…)

Located within a short walk of the 29th Street light rail station, the new Temple on S Street should be a welcome addition to the neighborhood; and lovers of all things caffeinated in Sacramento will appreciate having a new place to check out.

Fourth of July Block Party Fun!

July 20, 2009

People from around the Newton Booth neighborhood had a great time celebrating our nation’s independence at the annual 4th of July Block Party, on U Street between 25th and 26th Streets.  As in past years, neighbors grilled meat and brought food, local musicians provided live entertainment, and children played in the street (blocked off to traffic, naturally).  And of course, as it got dark, people set off plenty of fireworks and sparklers.

Here are a few pictures of the event.  I do believe a good time was had by all…

Dear Neighbors,

Welcome to the Newton Booth Neighborhood Blog!   My name is Dairl Helmer, and I’m going to be the “host” of this little online gathering.  🙂

The Newton Booth Neighborhood Blog is being created under the leadership of the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association, a group intended to be a voice for the residents of the Newton Booth, Poverty Ridge, and Alhambra Triangle neighborhoods, here in Sacramento, California.  You can find out more about the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association at: http://www.newtonbooth.org.

On this blog, I’m hoping to share some of the events in our neighborhood, and some of the issues people in the neighborhood care about.  I may be the host, but this blog is for you.  Please post if you have ideas or comments to share!

I’ll be posting more items soon, so please check back in to this site.  Thanks for reading, and in the meantime, enjoy this beautiful neighborhood we call home!
