We had pizza and calzone at Gonul's J. Street Cafe at 38th and J. We usually have lunch there when we are in Sacramento. They have Middle Eastern and Italian style foods, yummy ice tea, great wines, nice desserts, and really fun art on the walls. When it isn't too hot, we sit outside. The crust was just fabulous and the toppings were really garlicky and delicious. Another good place is a great little Thai restaurant, Amarin, at 900 - 12th Street. The food's great and reasonable. Try the duck!

So there you have it. We survived the Fifteenth Annual Central Valley Antiquarian Book Fair and lived to tell good stuff about it. If you get a chance, drop in next year. They don't have a website, but you can reach Jim Kay at his bookstore,, or his email address - - if you want more information about being in or attending his great book fairs. Tell him we sent you!
