Rubio’s New Sustainable Shrimp Tacos

If you know me, you know I love shrimp. Grilled, pan fried, deep fried, coconut battered – you name it, I love it. So it should come as no surprise that when the SacFoodies were offered the chance to try Rubio’s new sustainable shrimp offerings, I jumped on the opportunity. While I’ve always been...

New Roma Bakery

New Roma Bakery

Donut lovers take note—New Roma Bakery is still a must-stop shop for real brick-oven fresh baked donuts and other baked goods. I recently moved to midtown and was pleased to find that this long-time Sacramento classic is just around the corner from my apartment. I’ll be honest, at first I was thrilled and then...

Granny de Vere’s Irish Shepherd’s Pie

In the heart of downtown Sacramento, there stands a small slice of Ireland called de Vere’s Irish Pub. Inside you’ll find a wealth of whiskeys, an abundance of beer and of course, the fine whiffs of Irish cuisine, all intermingled with the laughs and groans of regulars gazing up towards whatever sports game is...

As I was strolling through Costco a few weeks ago, I ended up in the beer section. Somehow this seems to occur every time I make a Costco run. Guilty pleasure I guess. My eyes are trained to look for new and interesting beers that I’ve never had before, and this time was no...

How I Earned My Wrinkles, by Anne K. Bardsley

Sep 17, 2014

“Come on in, sit down. Can I get you a cup of coffee?” I could almost hear Anne Bardsley saying that to me as I read her new book, How I Earned My Wrinkles: Musings on Marriage, Motherhood, and Menopause. In fact, I could swear midway through I could hear her offering to pour me a glass...

Oysters in Humboldt

Before last weekend, I’d never written a Yelp review. Despite having been to countless wonderful restaurants and devouring several fantastic meals, writing a Yelp review was never the post-meal priority. But last Saturday, everything changed. I had the best meal of my life and for the first time, writing a Yelp review became the...

Dingle Gin

Not too long ago, I returned from my honeymoon in Ireland. My wife and I toured castles, kissed the Blarney Stone, walked through St. Patrick’s Cathedral, drank a freshly brewed Guinness from the Dublin brewery and basically had an amazing two weeks on a bus tour of the entire island. On one of the...

For Elegant Dining and Craft Brews, Blackbird Soars

By: Amanda Frew and Jake Ferguson For those of us that work in downtown Sacramento, keeping us in the area after work hours is not easy to do with midtown’s many bars and restaurants luring us away after we leave the office. On a recent visit to Blackbird Kitchen + Beer Gallery though, two of...
