The Federalist Public House

2009 Matsui Alley
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 661-6134

We love this place. It's so easy with pay-at-the-register pizza and beer, lovely space and just a great midtown spot. They had a great selection of beer for Beer Week, we celebrated our Emily and all tried on Jenny's glasses, which looked great on everyone!

Nela's Mexican Restaurant

242 Vernon Street
Roseville, CA 95678
(916) 783-9992

We needed some cheap, easy deliciousness and Nela's hits the spot. Just good old fashion tacos, enchilada plates and burritos. Of course, we didn't take any photos because we were just too busy shoveling food into our faces.

Hawk's Public House

1525 Alhambra Blvd
Sacramento, CA 95816
(916) 588-4440

John wanted to check out this more casual version of the very lovely and fancy Hawk's out in Granite Bay for his birthday. It was top notch! Really well done and subtle cocktails and all the food was perfectly balanced and delicious. It's a small space but worth the wait to get in. If you can get to their very early happy hour, they have some great selections. The only downside is the night we were there, the open kitchen caused us all to smell like campfire when we got home. SO worth it!

Hot Italian - Ben's Birthday

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

Ben has a soft spot for great pizza, a giant round table and more than a dozen drunks for his birthday and Hot Italian hits the spot. All of the 18 drunks ate copious amounts of pizza and drank to the health of the birthday boy.

Fat Rabbit

825 Sutter Street
Folsom, CA 95630
(916) 985-3289

When two of the babies in the group turn one, we take them on their first pub crawl! We'll, they crawled in the pub. Fat Rabbit is the perfect family pub and we thoroughly took over the space with kids, beers, vittles and babies. They have a great pretzel, a nice selection of European beers, fish and chips, Shepard's pie - all very good. One year old and they are well on their way to be proud Thursday Drunks!

1430 S Street
Sacramento, CA 95811

Oh, the old Monte Carlo never looked (or smelled) so good! The Shady Lady folks took over the little dive bar on the corner of S & 15th and turned it into a really find audiofile bar. It's nice and simple with strong drinks and all vinyl on the turntables. No food makes things simple and with so many restaurant options within a couple blocks, it's pretty perfect. We also hear that they still honor old Monte Carlo drink tokens for a well drink. Nice!

Robert Burns Dinner

Once a year, our Scottish Drunks host a dinner in honor of Robert Burns and his addressing of the haggis. It's a great evening of meat pies, tatties, neeps, whisky, ale, haggis, soda bread and so much more! It's a fine night that starts with poems and degrades into dirty limericks by the end.
