If you’re looking to grub, drink, and catch a sweet show—all without getting behind the wheel—then K street will fix you up real nice. This ever-growing downtown area is sure to provide anyone with a day of activity bliss!
■ Get down on some gratifying grub: This might be a dilemma, with so many beautiful options available. There’s Mayahuel ($10-$25 per plate) if you feel like munchin on Mexican. If you are more into Traditional American you can check out Esquire Grill ($15-$35 per plate), offering everything from good ol’ fashioned burgers to Filet Mignon. Those who want to get a little fancier can check out Ella ($25-$60 per plate) for some delectable New American and French Style cuisine. Personally, I suggest getting your pizza party on at Pizza Rock ($10-$20 per plate); with a gluten-free crust option available, now all the people can get down on some classical Ninja Turtle cuisine.
■ Wet your whistle with some bodacious brews: If you want to spend some quality time with beer, K Street can provide for you via Pyramid Breweries. With seasonal beers, alehouse exclusives, and specialty offerings, this place is sure to satisfy even the deepest of thirsts. Heck, they even have growlers to go!
■ Catch a fascinating flick: This fabulous little patch of Sacramento offers not one, but two different theatres! Madness, I know. Get up close and personal with some Polar Bears at IMAX with To the Arctic 3D or learn some cinema at Crest Theatre with Hitchcock.
■ Venerate the view: Among other things, Sacramento is home to a rising art scene. Don’t forget to check out The Blue Trees, a public art piece by Konstantin Dimopoulos, before it fades away. While The Blue Trees is temporary, there is still plenty of permanent public art to be found on The Kay.
■ Dance until delirium sets in: If you enjoy boogieing the night away, The Kay has a couple options for you. The night-loving young thang is sure to enjoy the unique club atmosphere that is Dive Bar; check out Le Twist every Tuesday for an eclectic mix of tunes from the ’60s to the present. If you are more into live music, look no further than Marilyn’s on K, where you can play a game of pool while you enjoy the tunes of local bands. Tonight’s show will feature local singer/songwriter James Cavern.
Whatever it is you’re in to, The Kay—or K Street—is sure to satisfy your needs. So get there!
