Midtown Monthly ceasing publication

Tim “Old Man” Foster blogs today on MidownMonthly.net that the March issue of Midtown Monthly will be the last issue.

I’m sad, but I’m also proud. I’m proud of the work that our contributors have done. I’m proud of the contribution that Midtown Monthly has made to the public narrative of Sacramento. I’m proud that we spotlighted a side of Sacramento that is often ignored, or even maligned. I’m proud that in over five years I’ve never published anything I didn’t stand behind.

DEFINITELY not something I can say about this here web log. (Speaking only for things I have written, of course.)

Though I’m not a Midtown resident I’ve definitely always been a reader. Here’s hoping the Internet and possibly other alternative publications can take up the charge of spotlighting Midtown’s culture.

  1. As a long time friend of Tim (I worked for him, he worked for me, we spent hours bitching about our love lives pre-marriage & have had almost all the same people as bosses and/or coworkers in countless places over the past 15+ yrs) this is a huge suckfest. Tim & Liv put so much into the mag and I am so disappointed
    it wasn’t the giant success it deserved to be. Hats off to both of them for giving it their all.
