Hey Folsomites and visitors, here are a few quick suggestions for having a great Father’s Day in Folsom’s Historic District.
Grab a bite
The Historic District has lots of great dining options. I can’t cover them all, but would recommend… for breakfast, Q’bole, which has, in addition to Mexican food, favorites from the menu of the old Sutter Street Grill… The new Folsom Cafe (formerly Reset) features coffees, teas and light bite…For lunch, how about grabbing a Johnny Cash Burger from Sam Horne’s – topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, bourbon-espresso red eye sauce, you’ll understand why this is their best seller, and a reason why it made the list of the top burgers in Folsom… Dinner – I just love Scott’s Seafood. It’s a beautiful building, with indoor and outdoor seating, with great service and food.
Walk it off
Take a stroll through the Historic District to check out the shops, throw an axe, pick up a new book… the new Sunday Farmer’s Health Market, features fresh local produce, gourmet foods, health-related vendors and monthly demos… head down to Lake Natoma, easily accessible from Riley Street, or just below the Lake Natoma Inn. Check the paddlers, maybe catch a glimpse of a bald eagle…
Have a drink with a view
The new Hacienda Real has great margaritas and hi-top tables on their roomy deck so everyone gets a view of the district… Gaslight has a great beer selection, as well as a craft cocktail menu, and the deck affords views up and down Sutter…
Get your blues on
Powerhouse Pub hosts the Powerhouse of Blues series every Sunday from 3 to 6. This weekend featuring Chrissie Odell and the Real Deal. Chrissie is a powerful, soulful vocalist with a killer band.
Whatever you choose to do, we hope all the dad’s out there have a Happy Father’s Day!
