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 297: Sacramento Dine Downtown Week

Sacramento is celebrating "Dine Downtown" week from Jan. 15-24 this year (yes, this is actually more than 1 week, but I think the point is to include 2 weekends in that time span).

The goal of this promotion is to highlight restaurants in Downtown, Midtown, and Old Sacramento by offering special 3-course prix fixe menus at $31 per person. In previous years, the cost has been $30, and that extra $1 this year is to support the non-profit Food Literacy Center, which works to "inspire change in community food education."

Mr. E and I have taken advantage of this promotion in the past to try out some higher-priced restaurants where we might not otherwise dine, and we're thinking about heading to The Firehouse this weekend, possibly to meet up with my colleague B, and her spouse, B.  The Firehouse is a rather pricey special-occasion-type restaurant in Old Sac, so the option of a $31 prix fixe menu is quite a value at this spot. If we do make it there, I'll definitely post about the experience!
