The geniuses over at the newly opened and already amazing Drake’s: The Barn in West Sacramento have come up with quite possibly the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon: drinking dark stout beers and pairing them with fresh, made to order, hot and gooey s’mores. “S’mores and Stouts” goes down again on Jan. 20 and Jan. 27 from 3–9 p.m. Each week they will have a different featured s’more, and we aren’t talking your average mom’s camping s’mores (though who are we kidding, we would gladly eat those, too!); we’re talking “everything from rustic housemade graham sandwiches, chocolate s’more tarts packed to the brim with marshmallow goodness and even s’more macaroons,” according to their Facebook page. Entry is free, but the s’mores and stouts cost money. Limited amounts of s’mores are made each week; you’ve been warned! Well behaved kids and dogs are welcome, too. Location is 985 Riverfront St., West Sacramento. Check out or for more info.
