It’s all the local news and stuff from the blogosphere that you need to Fres-Know.
THE TOWER IS A PLACE FOR TOURISTS: The Tower District (and Fresno) got a two-page spread in the current Sunset Magazine. They shouted the Tower out as a cool daytrip and called it a “hip indie ‘hood brimming with vintage flavor.” And no where did it say “scary,” so take that, rest of the city. [The Fresnan]
SUCK IT, LONG BEACH: Fresno is now officially the fifth biggest city in the state, topping Long Beach. Now we need a beach and a Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles. [Fresno Bee]
AIN’T FRESNO GREAT? If we may continue drooling over our city, we’ll point you toward a new survey from the Fresno City & County Convention & Visitors Bureau asking people “What’s so special about the Fresno area?” You should fill it out. [Fresno Famous]
PODCAST PIÃ‘ATA: The View Looks Good From Here, Fresno podcast turned 1 recently. What do you get a podcast for its birthday? We suggest a piÃ±ata. We like alliteration. I’m sure they’d be happy if you just listened though. [TVLGFHF]
IT AIN’T ALL RAINBOWS: A recent trainwreck of a local show has Conlan at FMB ranting about Fresno’s music scene. It’s a good read. [FresnoMagBlog]
I’m enamored with this Cleveland “tourism” video I found yesterday. Both H-Mac and I had the same reaction: “We should make one for Fresno.” But we’re neither musically nor videoally inclined. (I’m still trying to figure out if I can make a Swede).

But I know we got some film geeks in this town. If you make it, I’ll post it. If you want to not make it, but instead laugh at Cleveland … I’m OK with that.
