Hot Italian & the Birth of Gavin

1627 16th St
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 444-3000

Once again, Hot Italian treats us right. Gavin's choice for his birthday and we managaed the large round table which is just wonderful for a group of 17. Lots of thin crust pizza, beer, wine, bubbles, salad and so much deliciousness.

Oh, and one of our younger attendees lost a tooth! Woo!

We love our round table!

Someone lost a tooth at dinner.

Said tooth.

Fahrenheit 250 BBQ & the Birth of Mehera

7042 Folsom Blvd
Sacramento, CA 95826
(916) 476-4508

Mehera wanted meat for her birthday so she gets meat! Fahrenheit 250 is located in the old Bisla's building (or old Cattle Club, depending on your age reference), in the weird little building off the freeway, next to CSUS and sort of all by itself.

It just opened recently and is getting rave reviews for just damn good barbeque. Most of the drunks got sandwiches paired with a really good beer selection.

Mehera ordered the meat plate that came with two sides. She asked for mac n' cheese and the server asked what she wanted for her second side and she said "Another mac n' cheese!". Like a boss!

They have four different BBQ sauces, lean and fatty brisket choices and you can order corn muffins by the half dozen. Over all, top night!

GATHER Oak Park

Broadway & 3rd Avenue
Oak Park

Unseen Heros are the fab folks behind the GOOD Design Market. They just stared up a monthly GATHER in Oak Park on the second Tuesday of the month. We went their on their second go around. They close off a whole block right off Broadway and bring in food trucks, local beer, live band, vendors and such. It was packed full of folks that walked from their homes and also drive-ins like us that just wanted to check it out.

The drunks were 11 strong and ran into many friends at the festivities. What a great event! We would highly suggest checking it out. The next one is on Thursday, August 14th.

Bombay Bar & Grill

1315 21st St
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 441-7100

In the heart of Midtown, Bombay has been around for a few years if not more. A lot of people I trust love this place so we went! Ben was nice enough to go early, they had a great happy hour and some strong drinks. The staff is small but very personable and the food is great! This blogger missed the festivities and is a wee bit jealous. I'll have to take my own advice and try it out soon.

Boneshakers Community Brewery

4810 Granite Dr, Ste A-1
Rocklin, CA 95677
(916) 672-6292

Boneshaker Public House in Rocklin has been a favorite of the Drunks but it can be challenging since it is busy most of the time. If it's nice out, the porch allows for more room but you're screwed if it's raining or blazing hot. So, music to our ears, they opened up a new location named the Boneshakers Community Brewery with more space for sitting and eating and drinking beer.

Well done Boneshakers, well done.

Dad's Kitchen, Fair Oaks

8928 Sunset Ave
Fair Oaks, CA 95628
(916) 241-9365

We love Dad's Kitchen in Land Park Park so a second location in Fair Oaks for some of our more suburban members was a nice bit of news. We went to Maranello's a couple of years ago and Dad's moved in recently after they closed down. On a Thursday night it was packed with a 30 minute wait so obviously the neighborhood loves them!

Really nice beer menu, as one would expect, and all the old favorites like habanero blue cheese fries and tasty sandwiches. Overall a solid addition to Fair Oaks. Add it to the list people, you won't regret it.

Streets of London

1804 J Street
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 498-1388

Sometimes you go back to the beginning. This is the original site of the very first Thursday Drunks back in January of 2003. And there began the legend that is the Thursday Drunks. Now, Streets of London has not aged as well as our little gang of misfits. One full liquor license, a bad decision on the juke box and the loss of the British owner has pretty much take the soul out of this place. But, it's quiet on a Thursday night with a solid Shepard's Pie (just ignore the bar fluff on the menu), affordable beer and friends. It still has it's place, it just not as endearing as it once was.
