Beer Run: Yolo Brewing Co. open for biz and other brews you can use - There has been plenty happening on the local craft beer scene in recent weeks. This column missed a rotation while I was on vacation (and enjoying some great beer while relaxing), but now we’re back and scrambling to play catch-up. Featuring Yolo Brew, Bike Dog Brew, Insight Coffee, LowBrau, New Helvetia Brewing, Sudwerk Brewing, Mraz Brewing and American River Brewing. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.
Fire Rock Grill - The spacious venue smacks of modern sensibility (I noticed a patron near the entrance making use of a nearby electrical outlet during her meal), but the contrasting tan walls and darkly painted trusses hark back to the history that makes the space so homey and comforting. That relaxed feeling is reflected in the new-American-style menu, too, which showcases some cleverly refreshing tropical and Latin deviations. In Style Mag.
5 scrumptious local scoops to try during National Ice Cream Month - When we heard that July was National Ice Cream Month, we couldn’t wait to get the scoop on some of the most delicious flavors in the region. From fresh seasonal faves to popular classics, here are five icy-cold treats that are worth celebrating this month. Featuring Devine Gelateria, Gunther's Ice Cream, Vic's Ice Cream & More.

SoCal restaurateur finally gets to try his luck in Sacramento market - Restaurateur Sami Ladeki has waited seven years for the chance to expand his chain of Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza eateries to the Sacramento region. His Ladeki Restaurant Group operates 22 casual dining spots in Nevada and Southern California. In 1989, his original Sammy’s restaurant opened in La Jolla, where he met father-and-son team Rodney and Ryan Stone. As reported here in May, the Stones and their partners are behind Stones Gambling Hall, 6510 Antelope Road in Citrus Heights. When they asked Ladeki to run the restaurant and bar in their establishment, he jumped at the opportunity. Cathie Anderson in the Sac Bee.
That's Amore - We were brought four narrow slices of the special to try, a pizza that was topped with San Marzano tomatoes, sopressata, house-made buffalo mozzarella and a house-made cherry tomato and braised leek pesto. The pizza was served with two dipping sauces, both of which were also house-made: a chili oil and a basil pesto. The pesto spread on the pizza had a tangy, savory and sweet flavor profile that was well balanced and scrumptious, and I immediately took note of the fan-fucking-tastic crust. Theirs is a near perfect equilibrium of chewy and crispy, while also managing to be a skinny bitch—thin, foldable, yet sturdy. I was really impressed, and asked the curly-haired ginger chef, Paul Caravelli, what the secret was to this magnificent dough and cooking process that led to some arrestingly good pizza crust.
