This date night’s on us 🤝

Okay, not financially — we meant it’s on us idea-wise.

Anyways, here are some sites to set your eyes on for your next date or night out. Your next adventure awaits.

For the ones who want a night out on the town

Grab a drink at one of Sacramento’s rooftop bars, then catch a live show nearby at one of our city’s amazing venues.

If you’re a bit of a craft cocktail connoisseur, pay a visit to some of the best and friendliest “boozy chemists” in town. They’ll be sure to shake up your evening with something exciting.

Ya like jazz? 🐝 Every Tuesday is jazz night at The Butterscotch Den, and best of all, you can get some fresh steaks smothered in house-made steak seasoning along with your drink of choice.

Singer-songwriter Declan McKenna is center stage at music venue Ace Of Spades. There are blue and red stage lights, casting hues all over the crowd in the audience and performers on stage. McKenna is flanked by his band, and there are faux vines climbing up his mic stand.

Ace Of Spades is a great “middle” venue — small enough to be intimate, but not small enough to feel over-crowded.

If the way to their heart is through their stomach

Take a DIY approach with a cooking class at Napoli Culinary Academy and bring home some tips and tricks for your next cozy night in.

If something sweet is more your style, try a guided baking workshop with Justine + Candice at Sugar Sweetery.

Depending on their diet, take them to a veggie-friendly restaurant or get on that pescatarian wave with one of Sacramento’s best sushi spots.

For the ones who like to play games (just not with your heart)

Have a blast in the past at Coin-Op Game Room, where you can play a variety of retro arcade games. Pro tip: Every last Sunday of the month is free play, all day.

Check out There and Back Cafe, where you can sip on a coffee or beer and feign nonchalance while you try to conceal that mean competitive streak.

Tee it up at a golf course in town — we recommend choosing from the mini putt variety to keep things fun and simple.

🍽️ Your next farm-to-fork feast in Sac

Allow us to introduce you to Flora & Fauna Provisions, your next breakfast and lunch spot Downtown.

Located inside the first floor of Plaza Park Tower (849 J St.), this restaurant sports a seasonal menu with produce sourced from local farmers markets.

Nosh on breakfast + lunch sandwiches, salads, and house-baked challah french toast. Beverage options come from Anchor & Tree Coffee — we tried the chai with F&F’s oatmeal cookie syrup. Yum.

Don’t forget to pay your compliments to the owners, Christopher + Angel, who cook and bake their market wares together. No worries, they don’t bite.

They hope to use their restaurant to promote fresh eats and food literacy in the area.

When you visit, you’ll have to check out the two colorful bunny murals painted by Angel’s sister. Where some operations may take a village, this one definitely takes at least a family.
The Buy
A Curry Up Broth Bomb, which will flavor five to eight portions of soup, beans, chili, or whatever you want to cook. Hello healthy, yummy dinner.
