To-day, I drove around downtown #Fresno to take notes on properties for sale/lease for a client. I then stopped by Peeve’s Public House on the Fulton Mall to do more research on my laptop. On my right, I had a gigantic burrito from a nearby restaurant, and a Tioga Sequoia stout on my left. Now, that’s a lovely way to work!
The best part was that a young couple stopped in the pub. They’re looking to move to Fresno. I think they’re from the Bay Area. The husband wants to get into the solar industry. They’re looking for a charming house to rent in an area with a good nightlife. I told them about Downtown, Tower, and Fresno High-area.
Two other men stopped by the bar. They’re travelling orchestra musicians from Northern California. They said they were walking down the Fulton Mall and randomly saw Peeve’s. How often does that happened?! A regular was schooling them on local breweries.
Anyway, it was amazing to see new people stop by Peeve’s, especially ones from out of town. I think it’s a great first impression of Fresno and Downtown.
My grandma, mom, and uncle were at the opening of the Fulton Mall 50 years ago. They urge me to take as many photos of the pedestrian mall while it still exists.
And, well, that’s a damn good idea.
Fresno can be a very nice place!

I am from Fresno! Fresno is one of California’s the best kept secrets! 💖 There are amazing restaurants here! Great Mexican, Vietnamese, BBQ, Italian! The best street art imaginable! We have a great art scene here, lots of cool graffiti pieces that people paint on trains. Amazing music plays at our arena! Huge concerts! Famous pro skaters visit skate spots here! The mountains and the beach are both just a couple hours away! There are farms, but city. You can ride horses or get a swanky salad. I love it. People say what they will about Fresno! That its hot, there are gangsters, or that our downtown sucks, but those people are not cool. 👎 I hope you move here! I truly love Fresno. 💕😄
This is the most enthusiastic comment, about Fresno, I have ever read on tumblr. I appreciate the positivity!
Fresno’s Rogue Festival opens this Friday through March 8th!
This Thursday (2/27/14), #Fresno City Council will decide whether to restore the pedestrian-only mall or to reconstruct it and open it up to cars.
The Fulton Mall opened almost 50 years ago. Fresno was nationally recognized as being ahead of its time for battling urban sprawl. Now, Fresno is seen as a joke; a city with a dilapidated urban core. Whether the city decides to update the mall or to tear it out, something needs to be done.
The City Council meeting will start at 5PM at City Hall in #downtown #Fresno. There will be a “pre-game party” at Peeve’s Pub on the Fulton Mall. Pizza, beer, and t-shirts will be passed out. This will take place around 3PM.

I’m getting to see this next Friday with live orchestral music. Very excited!!
Ah! That’s great! I got to experience that at the Warnors Theatre in downtown Fresno. It was amazing!
FRESNO, Calif. – Without a lot more rain and snow, many California farmers caught in the state’s drought can expect to receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state, federal officials announced Friday. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation…
I’m waiting for 1/3 of the world population (you know, the people that the farmers in our area feed) to regret this decision. Or should I say the lobbyists and politicians who continue to ignore the importance of our agriculture.
I really enjoy reading about other Lindy communities!
come to baltimore! it’s been said by a shitload of people who have been all over the world that baltimore has one of the best and most…
Oh my goodness! Thank you for responding to my comment! You’re community sounds very lovely. I’m from Central California. Things are different, here, than along the coastline of California. Our Lindy Hop community is relatively new and is growing. It can be discouraging, at times. Sharing your experience has helped me see how our group can grow. Thank you, again! I’ll definitely put Baltimore on my list of places to travel for dancing.
It’s wintertime, but that hasn’t slowed the food trucks down. They’re still showing up at a variety of events and have some new goodies both edible and otherwise to show off.
Food trucks at Gazebo Gardens (the nursery located at the end of Christmas Tree Lane). This is a fun event! Oh, and they serve beer on tap.
I can’t even xD
(Here’s me making this funny post cheesy)
I can think of a few Fresno events the president can take his lady love:
To be honest, these are events I found out about on Facebook. Feel free to add more.
As for me….I’ll be hanging out with my mom and grandma. :)
Read in the Fresno Bee.
I spoke with one of the organizers of the Catacomb Party (a music festival on the Fulton Mall), Mathr de Leon. The event has grown, a lot, in the past two years. The organizers have decided to move the next Catacomb Party to April of 2015. It will be a cooler time in Fresno! The Fulton Mall might look a lot different by then. Who knows at this point…
This year, the organizers will be hosting a block party, helping out with F.U.S.E Fest, and helping celebrate Tioga Sequoia opening up their facility to the public in April
