In recent years, there’s been an emphasis on healthy eating, and rightfully so. However, sometimes you’ve just gotta put the kale and quinoa down and gorge yourself on a heaping helping of fried chicken. Hey, what’s the point of being healthy if you can’t enjoy yourself once in a while? And what better place to indulge yourself than Roxy Restaurant and Bar (2381 Fair Oaks Blvd., Sacramento)? Every Sunday for just $40, you and a date can chow down on their juicy fried chicken, drizzled with pomegranate molasses and equally mouthwatering sides and a “bubbly” fruit cobbler for dessert. You can even add a bottle of house wine for just $15 more. If that’s not the recipe for a little autumn romance, we don’t know what is. Roxy prides itself on using locally grown, organic ingredients, so you don’t have feel too guilty about your guilty pleasure. For more info, go to Facebook.com/roxyrestaurantandbar.
