You Might Be From Sacramento If…
You think the speed limit on I 80 is actually 80.
You love the State Fair. Even if it's hot and sticky outside, the idea of Cal Expo, fun rides and munching on the latest trend of ultimate deep fried cuisine is just too fun to pass up.
You own at least one inflatable tube for floating the river. You and your friends also have the perfect, secret river spot that no one else knows about. Except for all of the other people who think the same thing.
You have biked or walked the dog on the American River Bike Trail on the Folsom end and the Downtown end.
You can’t stand going to generic, chain coffee shops when you’ve been spoiled with some of the best independent coffee roasters in the world in Midtown.
You have competed in, volunteered at, watched, or know someone in Eppie’s Great Race.
You still remember your first big concert at Arco Arena.
Fall means one thing: a trip to Apple Hill.
You start off each Thanksgiving with the Run to Feed the Hungry. Then, it’s time for turkey and a pre-game nap on the couch.
It’s not Christmas unless you have driven through the Fabulous 40’s to look at lights on your way to see the Sacramento Ballet perform the Nutcracker.
You don your warmest winter apparel as soon as the temperature drops below 60 degrees.
You have chaperoned at least one field trip to Sutter’s Fort, the Train Museum, or the Crocker Art Museum.
You’ve been to at least one child’s birthday party at Fairytale Town, Funderland, or the Sacramento Zoo.
Sacramento Kings FOREVER! People from Sactown bleed purple and silver, and still talk about Mike Bibby, Chris Webber, Peja Stojokovic, Vlade Divac, Doug Christie, Hedo Turkoglu, and Bobby Jackson.
You can’t stand the Lakers, but you know at least one die-hard fan.
It took you a long time to get used to calling it Sleep Train Arena, but the games are as exciting as ever.
You’ve been on a date-night to watch a River Cats game, eat a hotdog, and drink a beer from a plastic cup.
You’ve patiently stood in line anticipating the huge screen excitement at the Downtown IMax.
You’ve been to the Crest theater. In costume. Enough said.
You still get lost going downtown and trying to find the IMax or Crest Theater.
You’ve seen at least one murder mystery dinner show on the Delta King.
The only time you ever go to Old Town is when you have visitors from out-of-town. Then, you pretend that you are there all of the time to eat at Joe’s Crab Shack, or to go to the Jazz Festival.
When you want to impress a date, you make reservations at Biba or The Waterboy. When you want to have fun with your friends, you go to Mikuni’s or Zocalo’s.
You’ve lost count of the amount of times you have partied like it’s 1985 with Tainted Love at Harlow’s.
You regularly day trip to San Francisco or Lake Tahoe. You’ve also spent at least four hours trapped in traffic on a holiday weekend trying to get to “the City” or Tahoe.
Anytime you watch a Tom Hank’s movie, you proudly proclaim that he went to CSUS to anyone who will listen.
You manage to see one of your kid’s teachers, two co-workers, and at least one friend from high school at every CalFit location you workout at.
You moved away from Sacramento once, and then you moved back.
You actually live in Folsom, Roseville, Carmichael, Natomas, Elk Grove, Citrus Heights or Rocklin, but tell anyone outside of Northern California that you are from Sacramento.
