The next installment of the mobile food festival, Trucktoberfest, will be Saturday, Sept. 29 in West Sacramento, reports Brandon Darnell in Sac Press.
Dubbed “Trucktoberfest,” it will feature 15 local trucks and five from the Bay Area, though event organizers said the final list of trucks isn’t yet determined.
“We’ll have a wide variety of beer offerings, and it’s going to be right on the river,” said Paul Somerhausen of SactoMoFo.
Having the event at Riverwalk Park, near the Ziggurat Building at 707 Third St., is something that wouldn’t have been possible when the city incorporated, West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon said.
Sacramento region adds restaurant weeks - An inaugural Sacramento regional dining week is coming in October. It sounds familiar, but this is new. This dining week is regional — and it is in addition to the local dining weeks, which usually occur in January. The local chapter of the California Restaurant Association is launching the regional Restaurant Week, which will actually be two weeks long, to show off the area’s culinary chops at harvest time.

Volks Waffle: Authentic Belgian waffles bring Europe to Sacramento - Most Americans have never had a true Belgian waffle, said Terry Jeske, owner of the Volks Waffle food truck, and he hopes to give Sacramentans the chance. So, what makes a Belgian waffle truly Belgian? “In America, when you make waffles at home or IHOP or Denny’s, they’re made out of batter, so you pour the batter onto a griddle or an iron,” Jeske explained. “Mine are dough-based. It’s a completely different animal.” Brandon Darnell in Sac Press.
A Place to Store Wine - And Drink It Too - Upstairs, it’s all business. Downstairs, it’s always ready for a party. That pretty much sums up Caverna 57, an office building and wine storage facility that recently opened in East Sacramento. The brainchild of Jeff Boucher, a 23-year veteran of the commercial real estate industry, Caverna 57 is largely a product of pragmatism, with executive office suites on the upper floors and rentable wine lockers below. Wine storage, explains Boucher, “was not only a better use for the basement portion of our property but something that would also be very creative and just tie nicely into the neighborhood.” Catherine Warmerdam in Sac Mag.
