Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 220: The Rind

S and I had our monthly Happy Hour at the end of last month and decided to try The Rind again.

"The Rind is a cheese-centric bar where you can experience unique and inspiring artisanal cheeses paired with delightful and complex wines and beers.  Cheese Enthusiasts will finally have a place in Sacramento to explore cheeses, from buttery to blue, nutty to stinky, with a glass of wine or beer and no pretention.  Still hungry? Indulge in classic and "grown up" grilled cheese sandwiches to mac & cheese."  

We'd been once before but hadn't made this a regular spot, primarily because the food offerings are limited and very cheese-focused (understandably, given the name...) and also due to small space that sometimes causes challenges in finding a table.

The cheese selection is extensive, as shown by the cheese list that's organized by source (goat vs. cow), origin (country, state), and relative hardness:

I secured a table by arriving a bit early and ordered a glass of wine and eventually a cheese plate, figuring that S would probably like any cheeses that I selected. The cheese plates come with a few sides and some crostini and are quite elegantly but simply presented:

At some point, I'll need to bring Mr. E to The Rind so he can enjoy the cheesy goodness!
