I’m attending the International Food Bloggers Conference in Sacramento, California. This will be my first food blogging conference. I attended Blogher and learned a lot about blogging in general and had a great time meeting other bloggers. I have started packing for my move back to Baja, Mexico so this will be a nice diversion to the city before I have to adapt to rural life again. Great food and shopping will be on my to do list. And of course learning and networking. Duh!

Here’s a link for things to do in Sacramento. Visit Sacramento and a visitors guide.

Interested in craft beer? Here’s a guide.

Wine train? Mediavine is sponsoring a trip on the wine train Thursday night. Here’s more about the wine train.

Vegetarian food? Check out Veg Midtown on J Street.

Here’s a link to the IFBC and a story about the great places to eat in Sacramento.

Sac is just over a two hour drive over the Sierra Nevada Mountains from me. If you are spending a few extra days around the conference consider a 1 1/2 hour drive on Interestate 80, through the Sierras and visit Truckee, California. It’s a great small mountain town that is just hip enough. Here’s their official town website.

If gambling is your thing, drive a bit farther into South Lake Tahoe or Reno for adult gaming. Actually if you haven’t seen Lake Tahoe then that alone is worth a drive through the mountains via Interstate 50.

I’m looking forward to exploring and eating my way through Sacramento. If you are attending, let’s meet up for a chat or a margarita. Send me an email with your contact information.
