The winner of the Elk Grove Pumpkin Festival pie-eating contest over the weekend was Jeffrey Esper, who ate 15.75 pounds of the dessert. That's just over 4 pounds shy of the world record. There was also a community members pie eating contest. Elk Grove Police Department community service officer Kristina Ramirez defeated Laguna Creek High School football coach Dan Davis by 4 ounces. She ate 3.5 lbs. Information and video by Doc Souza/Elk Grove Laguna Forums

Bike Dog Brewing opens new location next to Selland's on Broadway
The “world’s largest street pub” returns to Sacramento next month. Deschutes Brewery is bringing its 400-foot-long party to the Handle District on Oct. 14, 2017, with proceeds again benefiting Elk Grove’s Runnin’ for Rhett nonprofit organization. It’s the third time the pub has visited Sacramento and organizers hope to add to the $180,000 raised over the last two years.
Mike Testa, CEO of Visit Sacramento, says the organization leaves the menu up to the chefs for the annual Tower Bridge Dinner, a sold-out Farm-to-Fork celebration that runs $199 per ticket. The menu was unveiled at a preview at Golden 1 Center on Monday.
