The opening date for the Sacramento Cracker Barrel has been set and I am looking forward to a road trip later this summer. I have been looking forward to this since I first learned in December 2016 that Cracker Barrel had plans to open stores in California.
At that time I wrote a post titled Cracker Barrel in California?
The Cracker Barrel in Sacramento will be at 1000 Howe Avenue in the Arden-Arcade area.
The Cracker Barrel website still does not list an opening date, but Sacramento media outlets today announced that it will open on August 20.
Cracker Barrel also released some pictures of the wall displays. Sacramento is definitely a River City and this is a nice display of fishing memorabilia.
Agriculture is also a big part of California and the Central Valley and this display shows some great advertising images as well as tools involved in growing and processing California crops.
The first Cracker Barrel in California opened earlier this year in Victorville and there are two more locations in the southern part of California that are on the way.

I am looking forward to a plate of food just like this in California 🙂
Now I am hungry….
Back in December I wrote a post titled Tracy Hills Construction Begins. I decided tonight to give an update as I found out that Google Maps has a new satellite image of the area that is quite interesting. But first a bit about Corral Hollow.
Earlier this year Corral Hollow was closed entirely for utility work to support the Tracy Hills project. See my post Tracy Traffic Troubles for more details. There were many upset people who had to find other routes for their commute.
Corral Hollow is now back open and includes a traffic island for the entry to the Tracy Hills project. My Sunday morning drive to Patterson is a bit shorter now 🙂
Blurry images brought to you by my dirty windshield which the camera focused on.
Here you can see road construction equipment at the Tracy Hills project. They are getting ready to start paving the roads throughout the project which is one of the last steps before houses start rising from the ground.
Here is the new satellite image from Google Maps. You can see the general outline of the roads in the project. It was interesting to compare it with project maps available in Tracy Planning Commission meeting minutes.
Here is a closer look at the satellite image. You can see the individual parcels of land where houses will soon be built.
I am not looking forward to all the commuters this project will generate. But, perhaps they will get the metering lights on the Altamont activated before they will start having an effect on my commute. See: Metering the Altamont
