Brewer not too happy with local eatery after sky high prices - Earlier today, ranSACkedmedia ran the story about Kupros Bistro landing a rare keg of Pliny the Younger IPA and charging $45 for a 12 oz. glass with a burger. Apparently, Russian River Brewing Co. got several emails from beer lovers who protested the price point that Kupros set their beer at, and one received the following feedback and forwarded it to us.

Beer and chili in Sacramento this weekend - As the winter season comes to a close, one cold-weather stew will receive a lively send-off this Saturday. The Sacramento Beer & Chili Festival at Southside Park (2116 Sixth Street), which coincides with Beer Week, celebrates both vegetarian and meat versions of a certain hearty stew called chili. The competition will determine a winner in three categories: individual, corporate and industry. Additionally, attendees can pair their chili with a beer from such regional breweries as Ruhstaller, Sudwerk and Lost Coast. Local band As Yet Untitled will kick out some live jams.

Ella to kick off "Meet Mike" menu, The Kitchen nabs another award - Mike Thiemann's about a month into his new role as executive chef at Ella Dining Room & Bar, and for the month of March the restaurant is offering a special "Meet Mike" menu to further introduce Thiemann's culinary talents to Sacramento diners. To recap, Thiemann's a Rancho Cordova native and veteran of Sacramento's punk and indie-rock scenes who later found success as a chef, with stints in New Zealand, Hawaii and most recently as executive chef with Tyler Florence's Wayfare Tavern and Hawk's Tavern. Click here for a profile of Thiemann which recently ran in the Bee. Thiemann's spent the past month balancing Ella's signature dishes - roasted bone marrow, pappardelle and poached egg, yellowfin tuna carpaccio - with his own ingredient tweaks and introduction of new dishes. From Thursday through Saturday, you can participate in this getting-to-know-you phase with a three-course "Meet Mike" menu that costs $40. Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
Red Rabbit - When I looked around during dinner, I saw an array of diners- the after work business suits, the local Midtown tatted bar crowd, families with children, hipsters, couples on dates...all happily eating under the same roof. It looks like in the short time that it's been open, Red Rabbit has perhaps stumbled on the perfect recipe for creating a friendly neighborhood gathering place. I hope they hold fast to that particular recipe as they continue to evolve their menu and restaurant. Ally Gaffan on A Girl and her Fork.
Cod Love at The Press - I was in cod heaven the other night at The Press, one of my favorite midtown restaurants...Paired with a silky Viognier and some excellent conversation, the meal was one of the best I enjoyed all week. Kira O'Donnell in Sac Mag.
