Last Week, Sactown Mag reported that Bacon & Butter would be on on Saturday. Bacon & Butter announced this evening that it still won't be ready on Saturday. Here's a snippet from their e-mail:
Sactown Magazine had originally reported that we'd be open this weekend on September 27. As much as we'd love to be open this Saturday, we will still be closed, formulating menus and putting the final touches on our new home this weekend.
This is just the latest in a series of delays. I'm going to look on the bright side. We've waited since Father's Day. What's a couple more days while they get things right?
Update: In a tweet on Wednesday morning, Bacon & Butter clarified the status of their opening date.
Try It: Juno’s Wild Arugula Salad - Friendly little Juno’s Kitchen & Delicatessen in East Sacramento never fails to impress me. The teeny space cranks out a number of creative, spectacular sandwiches (don’t miss the panko-crusted eggplant sandwich, a nosh I’ve been mildly obsessed with for a couple of years) – and the sandwiches are mostly what the shop is known for.

A Fine Opportunity; One trio’s quest to finance fine dining in Placerville - It was a question they’d asked themselves time and again. Could Placerville support fine dining? Would the little town of 10,000 people, known for mining and quiet foothill living, embrace a $14 salmon burger or $18 fried chicken? Surely, they thought, the market for their envisioned eatery, The Independent Restaurant and Bar, must exist. Douglas Curley in Comstocks Mag.
A Little Bit of Everything (Todo un Poco) - Marie Mertz had been friends with Manny Singh for several years when he half-jokingly suggested they open a restaurant together. He knew the food business; his family operated a pizza place. She loved international cuisine. So she humored him with a supportive response that day but was later shocked to find that Singh had secretly signed a lease in an Elk Grove strip mall. “I got us a restaurant,” he said.

Blending care and time at Miraflores Winery - Due to the climate and the terrain, the Miraflores vineyards are well suited to Southern Rhone varietals. Some of the Rhone wines that Miraflores produces are syrah, petit syrah, mourvedre and viognier, as well as a wine called Clone that’s inspired by Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Other wines include zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. A couple of Argentinian and Italian varietals are produced as well; malbec and barbera, respectively.
