Yolo Brewing Company will be coming to West Sac, with a targeted opening date of late Feb. 2014.
Per its Web site, "Yolo Brewing Co. will be a craft beer and brewing destination in the heart of West Sacramento's Port District. Yolo Brewing Co. will produce fresh beers with distinctive flavor profiles and outstanding quality."
Yolo Brewing Company is a venture helmed by Mike Costello, whom people might remember as the owner of Brew It Up. Coyote Tap House now occupies the space at 14th & H.
The brewery will also feature "guest brewing services" and will have an "outdoor beer dock" for guests to enjoy their beer in a "casual, comfortable [and] shaded" environment, says its Facebook Page.
This is the second craft brewery to open in West Sac. Earlier this month, Bike Dog Brewery opened to packed crowds.
I reached out to Costello for an interview, but he said he was extremely busy this week. I'll keep readers updated as I learn more when Costello and I connect after Thanksgiving.
Ford's Hamburgers - The building that used to house Ford’s Hamburgers in Land Park has been vacant for over a year. It’s been sitting empty and alone for quite awhile...She didn’t seem to have much information but she did inform me that “there will be Asian cuisine going in at the location” perhaps before the end of the year.

Very Mexican! - In sum, Oscar’s Very Mexican Food is the perfect sort of restaurant. It won’t break the bank, it’s easy to get to, it offers a steady and consistent menu that rarely disappoints. There’s now twice as much Oscar’s to go around for both Sacramentos, East and West. Viva Oscar’s! Joseph Atkins in Submerge Mag.
Diner specializes in sweet desserts - Rick’s Dessert Diner, a winner of many local best dessert awards, serves up sweet treats for people with cravings for sugar. Since its opening in 1986, Rick’s Dessert Diner has served more than 285 varieties of tall cakes, fresh fruit tarts, tortes and chocolate desserts made from scratch that both new and returning customers can find a new favorite delicacy during each visit.

Mai Pham soon will have nearly 20 Star Ginger eateries nationwide - Sacramentans gobble up chef Mai Pham’s noodles, banh mi and curries at her Star Ginger restaurant on Folsom Boulevard, but the region’s appetite for Pham’s Asian delights pales next to that of patrons at some of her other Star Ginger eateries. Pham now has 13 locations across the nation, and she’ll open at least six more in the next six months. Some readers might be surprised to learn that the local Star Ginger was actually the third to be constructed, not the first. Pham introduced her fast-casual concept at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 2003, after an administrator there saw her on television and invited her to serve students on the campus.
