What do you consider Fresno famous?
What is Fresno famous?
No, I’m not talking about the site you are reading right now. I’m talking about the things that people in Fresno know all about. Also, what SHOULD be Fresno famous? What are the things that you show your out-of-town friends when they come to visit? Think of those things that your friends will say, “I remember that!” ten years down the road.
I always drag my friends to as many places as I can: get a sandwich at Dusty Bun’s Bistro, try a tamale at Casa de Tamales, get a cup of coffee at Café Corazon and try a cupcake from Charlotte’s Bakery. You could even take it a bit further to specifics and celebrate the buzz (cheesy pun intended) behind the Café con leche drink at Café Corazon or the General Sherman beer from Tioga-Sequoia.
I always make it a point to show people show people a Grizzlies game (depending on the time of year, of course) or even the Chinatown Youth Center for a show.
Sometimes, a few things sneak past me. I recently discovered Mediterranean Grill in downtown Fresno after hearing so many people talk about it. It was so interesting to have trouble finding a parking spot and expecting a wait for a restaurant that is so tucked away. Needless to say, that restaurant has been Fresno famous for awhile.
As you can tell, I’m very much into food and various forms of live entertainment. I’m obviously not considering all things that should be “famous”, but that is where other people come in.
The idea of what is Fresno famous is a subjective one, so why not go out and see what other people believe to be famous? I’d love to hear what other people consider to be a popular destination, person, or anything else.
