As promised, here are some photos of my visit to the Pagoda Building and Chinatown Sacramento. Sorry for the quality.
It was sad to read about how this once flourishing cultural area had lost it’s flair and excitment. When we visited the area, other than 3 Asian women sitting in the courtyard and a pan-handling homeless man, it was empty.
I assumed the patio belonged to the Pagoda building but I learned that supposedly the parks and recreation department is responisble for leasing the patio area. I would simply rent the services and bathrooms from the Pagoda Building.
I emailed the department and suprisingly, my contact wasn’t even aware that was their (city of Sacramento) property.
“We’re not off to a good start” was my thought.
After a few days, my city contact finally got me in touch with someone else in the department who was more knowledgeable about the area and gave me an application.
Although this place is still in the running for our wedding venue, after some thought, I realize that I need to keep exploring my options. Wish me luck!
