Not that Sacramento is known for food, but it's got a few decent places. Bacon and Butter off Broadway does a fluffy pear and pecan French toast that is delectable, although it's so light it's practically a dessert. Their bacon is meaty and delicious as well, and their eggs, while fresh, are overly salty.
The third and final long run of marathon training was on the American River Trail with Patrick. Mostly flat pavement along the rain-swollen American River, with water foundations and bathrooms conveniently spaced every few miles, it was great to run long with a fellow marathon crazy.
Patrick's wife joined us for dinner after the long run. Sadly the fried chicken place we chose in midtown was packed, so plan B was the Thai place next door. Massive portions of a very so-so Americanized menu were complimented by a reasonably quality beer selection at happy hour, which worked out well considering two of us had just run 20 miles!
t'was great to see Frances and Patrick, even if it was a short trip!
Oh yes, started off the gallery two days before with UCLA game specials at Broxton Brewery in Westwood. Mike was right, the buffalo cauliflower is a little weird. It could be good, but something about buffalo sauce and cauliflower doesn't mix. The ribs were pretty meh as well, clearly boiled or something beforehand... although to be honest, both Joe and I found them edible enough.
