Fat Rabbit Public House

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

It was a birthday-less Thursday but the Fat Rabbit always draws a crowd. It's one of the easiest places to go since you order at the bar and you just pay for everything yourself. They have Strongbow on tap and an Icelandic Einstock White Ale that is just wonderful. Fish & chips are always a favorite along with Shepard's pie, pasties and their schnitzel which seems like a hold over from when this spot was Old Europe and served the best schnitzel in town. Its comfy nooks and crannies make it a great drop-in type evening with other drunks.

Bob's Rose Garden Chinese

1079 Sunrise Ave B250
Roseville, CA 95661
(916) 781-3823

Our last birthday in April was Bob and he choose some good ol' Chinese food. The Rose Garden in Roseville is a neighborhood standby and they even welcomed Mr. Jacob's by name. We packed the back room with 17 drunks and family and enjoyed Family Dinner A. Which means for $18.50 per person with a healthy tip we ate ALL the food! It was a cavalcade of options and well worth it. Bob had special "one pound of chocolate" brownies from Momma J and an all around grand night was had by all.

We took the whole back room.

Nairb's Birthday Beer Tasting

Undisclosed Rancho Cordova Location

The birthday Nairb requested the pleasure of our presence at his abode for his birthday! Mini sliders, mac n' cheese and at least 26 beers to taste! That was some fine hospitality and some damn fine beer. Nairb should have a birthday at least once a month.

Nice beer selection!
My takeaway gift!

Drunks are 40!

Mulvaney's B&L
1215 19th Street
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 441-6022

Five of our favorite drunks turned 40 this year and since they all fall within a couple of months we decided to have a fancy ass dinner. Mulvaney's B&L it is! We had 10 out in the patio and 8 inside the snug room which works just fine for us since we're social and like to move around. Our servers Sarah Jean and Ginger were just fabulous and Dan the bartender took great care of us as usual. Chef stopped by and thanked us for coming on not a Thursday. Overall, it was a fabulous night with fabulous people, food and drinks with the traditional Mulvaney's shot of Red Breast for everyone to top off the night.

Foie gras. Buttery.
Pea tendrils and asparagus.
Housemade smoked salmon.
Ribeye. So freaking good.
Handmade pasta with morels

And because the Patron Saint of the Thursday Drunks was our dinner fairy (yeah, it IS amazing!), we sent her a ridiculously large floral arrangement and champagne.

Darla & Carolyn's Birthday Porch

1815 K Street
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 444-2423

We have a lot of April birthdays which make our Thursdays amazing! Darla picked the Porch for a good old southern dinner and we even got a bonus birthday Carolyn! We had a great showing with unicorn horns and punch bowls. The servers were great with our ever growing party and the food was delicious.

Baby unicorn is not so certain about these shenanigans.

Trick Pony... I mean Masullo

2711 Riverside Blvd
Sacramento, CA 95822
(916) 443-8929

Since we went to Capital Dime it only seemed appropriate to hit up Trick Pony to polish off the Broderick's team of restaurants. Well, we found this...

So they closed down and will reopen with pizza and more rustic Italian options under a new name.

We went down the way to arguably our favorite pizza joint, Masullo. So yeah for us! A delicious evening of pizza, wine and drunks.

Capital Dime

1801 L St #50
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 443-1010

Finally checked this place out. They do have some great fries - rustic, nice toothiness, salt and pepper. It's a great option for a happy hour that's for sure.

The food is really good. Fried green tomato BLT, giant hamburgers, elotes. So many good options. The full bar, wine and local beers round it out nicely. They have an odd set up of bar downstairs and upstairs dining room/loft but surprisingly they don't forget you up there. Service was great!

We would highly recommend this place for a happy hour spot with a great open window view of midtown and a fun vibe. Come for the happy hour, stay for the dinner.
