Champagne Sundays

Sweetwater 5641 J St. | Sacramento Most people utilize Sunday as a day of rest, or a day to catch up on laundry, yard work, or other things with the word -work attached to the end of it. For myself, it’s a day of false optimism, but usually fun false…

Fatel Attraction

Mitch Fatel Punchline Comedy Club | Sacramento Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2008 What makes for a better Wednesday night than watching a short, awkward little pervy dude telling jokes about boobs and hairy va-jay-jays with booze in hand? Sure, you could do that at any bar, with any run-of-the-mill funny friends,…

Eat Well… Eat Greek!!

Opa! Opa! 5644 J St, Sacramento, CA “Eat well…eat Greek!” is the motto of Opa! Opa!, and in agreement with the restaurant and their philosophy on life, I’d like to add one more exclamation point to this sentence! In all seriousness, Opa! Opa! is perhaps the finest establishment I have…

Dollar Menu Showdown

Over the past two years I have, for the most part, cut fast food out of my life. I don’t know if it’s a coming of age thing or realizing that cooking is fun and often times more economically the way to go, but for the most part I don’t…

Tamaya Sushi & Grill

Tamaya Sushi & Grill 2131 J St., Sacramento By Corey Bloom It seems odd that in spite of the worst economic conditions this country has seen in decades that we are just now coming around to reviewing a sushi restaurant. Trust me, my wallet is just as malnourished as yours,…

Streets of London

Streets of London 1804 J St., Sacramento I love to gorge myself with food 100 times more when I’m drunk as opposed to when I’m high. I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t get the munchies like that; however, after two beers I’m eating whatever I can…

Capitol Dawg

Capitol Dawg 1226 20th St. Sacramento I know how hot dogs are made, but I forgot what I did yesterday, so I have no problem indulging in a true American favorite. Matter of fact, just thinking about the words “encased pork,” I envision a happy wiener dog wearing a chef’s…

Kasbah Lounge

Kasbah Lounge 2115 J St.| Sacramento Deciding upon a worthy and not-too-frequented dining spot around central Sacramento that featured ethnic eats was no easy task. There were a lot of worthy and affordable international restaurants, but many only open until 3 p.m. or 5 p.m., or only open on the…

Burger-Off ’08

I’ve been waiting weeks for this one, often fighting cravings in fear of burning out on America’s crown jewel of ground beef and its accompanying deep fried golden strands of starch. Yes, friends, I’m talking about the cheeseburger and freedom fries. Say what you will, but few meals beat the…

Jamie’s Bar and Grill

Jamie’s Bar and Grill 427 Broadway Sacramento, California You could drive past Jamie’s Bar and Grill 100 times without realizing it was even there. Located at 427 Broadway, Jamie’s is not extravagant by any stretch of the word. Other than a green awning there isn’t a sign that would attract…
