Why is it that everything always gets scheduled on the same dates? I've been back from Saudi for over a month now and bored during the weekends. Now I'm frustrated because a bunch of events that I am interested in all land on the same weekend. Some of these may be of interest to you.

Heritage Fire

Many of you know that this is my FAVORITE food event of the year and I generally go if I can. Problem is it is on a Saturday when other things are competing for my attention this year. This meat fest takes place at the Charles Krug Winery in St. Helena and features a couple dozen of Northern California's best chefs. The premise is every type of meat being cooked over open flame. This year, so far, the Sacramento chefs representing are Patricio Wise of Nixtacos and Eric Miller from V Miller Meats. I'm not sure what is delaying the chef update, but we usually have a couple more Sac chefs there. Regardless, if I tell you it's my favorite, that should be enough of an endorsement to go. My past post will give you a good idea of what to expect. Tickets 

Garden Rooftop Dinner with Chef Patrick Prager

I didn't know that the Sawyer Hotel and Revival Nightclub/Bar had their very own rooftop garden until I got an invitation to a special dinner for the night of Saturday, July 27th. Apparently it's time to harvest some of the bounty to be used by the restaurant and for homemade mixers and garnishes by the Revival barkeeps. To showcase their green thumb achievements, there is a special dinner planned. It’s a farm-to-fork, family-style menu paired with Silt wine on the open-air, 5th floor garden terrace. The event kicks off at 6:30pm with cocktails and appetizers with dinner to follow. Tickets 

What else am I to choose from? An invitation for an all-day white water rafting trip with friends as well as the Styx concert at Thunder Valley.  Decisions, decisions!

Other Saturday events that I'm interested in, but just can't go...

Taste of East Sacramento

Caribbean Festival

Sactown Wings

Another favorite that I can manage is Sactown Wings because it takes place on Sunday, the 28th at Southside Park. If you love wings, then this is the event for you. I eat a lot of wings on my keto diet, so this year I couldn't resist. Local restaurants will compete for your vote for best wings. Come say 'hi'!
