Butcher Class 101
Every wonder what it takes to be a butcher? The Roseville Meat Company was established in 1946 providing different services from processing to smoking various meats and renting lockers. Tina is getting some lessons on being a butcher! And it’s International Bacon Day – have you heard? Since Tina is at the Roseville Meat Co., she thought she could twist the owners’ arms and get them to make something with BACON and show us all the different types of bacon they carry.

Before I Die…
If you’ve walked on 20th Street near I St. in midtown Sacramento, you might have noticed the Before I Die Window! The window was created in hopes to inspire people to reflect on their lives and share their hopes and dreams with the community around them.
