Never Get Lost with Kings App
Recently announcing a partnership with Cartogram, the Sacramento Kings will launch a new app this fall, featuring advanced indoor-location technology.

Executive Chef Michael Tuohy and his team prepared an extensive spread that included nachos, chicken tenders, porchetta and more. While reporters and photographers enjoyed the fare, Tuohy discussed the many nearby businesses the organization is working with and how the farm-to-fork program will unfold.
