Celebrated the birthday of Alec Roberts by going to Izakaya Daikoku and imagined we were dining in Japan. Pretty solid all around time- delightful waiter, good drinks and food.
This yellow bunny sake was deliciously refreshing. I’m always afraid of flavored sakes being too sweet. The back of the bottle says, “This is a new starting point for all Japanese beverages. It was conceived as the finest brand ever created and to remain the best that the world will ever see .”
this teppan okonomiyaki is like a Japanese savory pancake/pizza. It was delicious but super filling and heavy. If you were drunk at 2 am this would be incredible.
RIP Hamburger Mary’s/Patties and welcome Goldfield
long gone are the glittery mermaids hanging from the ceiling and eclectic staff and patrons. goodbye tiger mural and fish tanks
hello animal skulls
this is a hard adjustment for me, but I am glad to see new venues and restaurants coming into the mix
We went across the street to enter BevMo- my first trip inside the building since the much beloved music store The Beat closed its doors. Hamburger Mary’s and The Beat will forever live on in my fond Sacramento memories.
Took in a World Cup game at Elixir,
I honestly had the greatest time watching Greece play Costa Rica at the bar. I never would have thought it, but I have become a shouting at the television sports watcher. People were screaming all kinds of nonsense at the bar like, “get outta my kitchen!” and “Greece forever!!!” Though my team didn’t win, it ended with overtime penalty kicks which has to be the most intense a game can get. Loved it. A special goodbye to my chosen World Cup boyfriend. Goodbye my sad eyed Panagiotis Kone. It was fun.
