Where’s the friendliest place in Fresno? Where can a newcomer feel at home? Where do Fresnoans (is that the right descriptor?) think that a person (anyone!) could show up alone and meet new friends? What’s with the general indifference and appalling level of cliqueishness? Keep in mind that new people don’t always have a ride or a dd or $ for a taxi so maybe suggestions should branch outside of alcohol-related events. Fresno’s DUI arrest record has not escaped my notice! Otherwise, I’d have myself at every wine tasting and happy hour in this city.
It’s all the local news and stuff from the blogosphere that you need to Fres-Know.
TASTES LIKE FRESNO:
The food-minded folks over at Taste Fresno unveiled a fancy new site yesterday, where they’ll gladly take your local restaurant reviews and favorite recipes — like bacon-covered cinnamon rolls. We apologize in advance for making you hungry. [Taste Fresno]
NAME THAT FRESNO LANDMARK: Another Fresno-centric site to add to your bookmarks is Picture Fresno. It’s quite fun — they show you a small portion of a photo from a recognizable Fresno landmark and you have to guess what it is. [Picture Fresno]
THE FUSION REMAINS: We thought Fresno Fusion has disappeared, but from the looks of things the Downtown-centric site is still hanging on and has something new in the works. We’ll be watching. [Fresno Fusion]
As promised, members of the Beehive – and many others – were present at last night’s FLYP event at Veni Vidi Vici. Super Lucky Catz were playing, libations were plentiful, and the outside patio was gorgeous. Were you there?
Here are (blurry) pictures of some of Fresno’s Leading Young Professionals enjoying a Tuesday night in their favorite city:
