West Sacramento Featured in Sactown Magazine

West Sacramento is being featured as a “Hot New Hood” in Sactown Magazine, where they highlight new businesses, and hot spots in the City.

West Sacramento

Long hidden in the shadow of its bigger sister city to the east, this industrial town is having its moment in the sun. Due in no small part to a daring, confident mayor in Christopher Cabaldon—it doesn’t hurt that he’s so hip he can pull off a pink seersucker suit, does it?—West Sacramento’s burgeoning riverfront scene finally reached a tipping point in 2016 with the rise of lively, livable architecture in The Bridge District (styled TBD by those in the know). The adjacent Washington neighborhood, once the turf of the infamous “Broderick Boys” street gang, has also seen a flurry of trendy destinations open over the past few months, from a cool coffeehouse to a hot jazz club. Finding the shiny new gems (think Fido-friendly taprooms and a dive bar revamped by the Shady Lady guys) tucked among the city’s unadorned reaches is a favorite sport among locals, as is strolling along the River Walk toward Raley Field humming “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” between licks of a cardamom-creamsicle ice cream cone you picked up from a devilishly charming treat shop. Or valet-parking your bicycle at the Barn to feast on food truck tacos and sip sangria to the tune of a local Americana band. So if it’s been a while since you’ve crossed the river to this suddenly exploding burg, it’s time to read the latest chapter in this west side story. —Hillary Louise Johnson

-What’s Hot-

Bean & Barrel

As of February, the Washington neighborhood now has a serene, light-filled cafe where you and your MacBook can while away a morning at a communal table sipping an Americano from beans roasted locally by Camellia Coffee and munching on a slice of bread so good it may just be the platonic ideal of breakfasts: The summery Farmer’s Toast, bedecked with lemon yogurt, avocado, cherry tomatoes and paper-thin ribbons of cucumber dressed in olive oil, is both virtuous and infinitely craveable. With wine on offer in the evening hours, this is a chill, convivial room to hang before or after work, a short hop across the I Street Bridge from downtown. 289 3rd St. 873-8136. beanandbarrelsacramento.com

Devil May Care Ice Cream

You’ll think you’ve landed in some hipster’s fever dream of Mayberry, R.F.D. when you nip into this adorable ice cream parlor in a strip of old-timey storefronts on 3rd Street, next door to Ray Mata’s Barbershop, a joint that’s right out of, well, Barbershop. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if a chef with serious culinary chops did nothing but invent ice cream flavors all day long, meet Devil May Care’s owner, West Sacramento native Jess Milbourn, who opened his parlor last November and handcrafts every batch of toasted almond and Thin Mints. We love the popular Coffee & Donuts, but our favorite treat on the rotating menu for a warm spring day has to be a pear sorbet float made with Burly Beverages ginger beer. 322 3rd St. 572-0456. devilmaycareicecream.com

Burgers & Brew

Opening last December, this latest offshoot of the popular local chain is an homage to beer geekery housed in the historic art deco Washington Fire House building at the foot of the I Street Bridge, refitted with

hammered copper furnishings and witty details like a skinny fireplace that runs the entire length of the patio. The burgers are inventive—they had us at cilantro and garlic aoli—and the BLT, packed with applewood-smoked Niman Ranch bacon, is an instant classic. The 40-plus tap pulls include a changing selection of local brews and seasonal highlights like the coveted Pliny the Younger. 317 3rd St. 572-0909. burgersandbrew.com

Station 1

West Sacramento now has its Blue Note, as in a serious, first-class jazz venue right above Burgers & Brew. The dimly lit, sexy second-floor boîte draped in red velvet curtains, which opened in mid-December along with its downstairs neighbor, is the perfect spot for an intimate evening with a local diva like Beth Duncan or Vivian Lee, who are already regulars on the calendar, and the adjoining terrace promises to be one of the coolest places in the city for late-night lounging, preferably to the smooth strains of bandleader Peter Petty crooning Mack the Knife. 317 3rd St. 572-0909. station1westsac.com

Edible Pedal

The first new business to stake out this now-happening strip on the corner of 3rd and C streets in March of 2015, this bike shop-cum-food delivery service (cargo bikes at Edible Pedal’s midtown location ferry grub to customers from places like Hot Italian, Magpie and The Porch) is yet another disarmingly charming business that seems like it should only be real in a world where leprechauns actually do roam the earth. West Sacramento is a bike commuter’s paradise, and if you live here you can bring your vintage Raleigh in for co-owner Brian Asch to do a 24-hour overhaul, or browse through new and used inventory of the kind of two-wheelers you wear a beret to ride, not a spandex unitard. 328 3rd St. 873-8585. ediblepedal.com

Port Brewery District

With the addition of Jackrabbit Brewing in 2015, followed by Rubicon’s Stillwater Brewery this past September, the density of taprooms in West Sacramento reached critical mass. Now styled the Port Brewery District by the city, this area is a collection of casual spots high on conviviality and low on décor budget—think concrete, corrugated tin and strings of Edison bulbs—with beer menus scrawled on chalkboards offering pints, flights and growler fills. You can bring your bike, your dog and your kids to any of them, and you’ll usually find a food truck parked out front. Start your tour at Bike Dog Brewing (2534 Industrial Blvd.) with a pint of malty Milk Stout, brave the graduate-level challenge of the Tower Bridge 3x IPA at Yolo Brewing (1520 Terminal St.), then recover with a mild, wheaty saison at Jackrabbit (1323 Terminal St.) and end with a game of skee-ball at Stillwater (885 Stillwater Rd.) while nursing a goblet of Naughty Russian Imperial Stout, the sipping whiskey of beers.

Chando’s Tacos

Last September, cult-favorite Chando’s Tacos opened an outlet smack in the middle of the industrial area that also houses the Port Brewery District. The red-and-yellow fast-food-restaurant décor will barely register once your senses are preoccupied by the heady aromas and flavors of a taco filled with Chandos’ marinated adobada, sliced to order off a rotisserie. You can also just get your food to go before hitting the taprooms, fortifying your beer belly with a savory meal of the signature mulitas—small corn-tortilla quesadillas stuffed with meat and ringed with crispy cheese. 2530 Boatman Ave. 375-0075. chandostacos.com

Four-legged patrons at Bike Dog Brewing can’t get a growler of IPA, even if they’re 21 in canine years, but they’re welcome to hang out.

Sail Inn Grotto & Bar

Last March, the team that operates R Street hot spots Shady Lady and Amaro helped reboot this friendly neighborhood tavern for owner Wayne Morse. The nautical dive-bar theme includes a stuffed marlin on the wall behind the bar, a rope ceiling and a parade of frozen rum cocktails (as in “yo ho ho and a bottle of”) decorated with umbrellas and strong enough you might just wake up in Shanghai with a new tattoo if you aren’t careful. The playfully piratical vibe attracts in equal measure families that come for pub fare like the rum-soaked pineapple chicken sandwich and millennial urbanites who come for the frosé, a frozen pink wine that is a summer favorite on the patio. 1522 Jefferson Blvd. 272-2733. sailinngrotto.com

The Barn

A swooping riverfront pavilion designed by Dutch landscape architect Jerry van Eyck, the Barn debuted last July and quickly established itself as the social hub of the emerging Bridge District. A marvel of digital engineering in which all the curves are constructed out of straight pieces of lumber, the shingled structure is rustic enough to host a hootenanny and futuristic enough that when you see it you feel a frisson reminiscent of the big reveal in Close Encounters. It’s the site of the Thursday night farmers’ market and magical “Saturday Nights at the Barn”: Picture yourself drinking in the Delta breeze—and a couple of craft cocktails—while listening to a hometown band playing Americana and feasting on tacos and gyros from food trucks courtesy of San Francisco-based Off the Grid, which also hosts a mobile eats festival during warm-weather months in nearby River Walk Park. 985 Riverfront St. barn.thebridgedistrict.com

-What’s Still Cool-

Broderick Roadhouse

When Chris Jarosz of Wicked ’Wich food truck fame took over a shuttered jazz club in 2012, his then-new burger joint respected its neighborhood’s working-class roots while tempting midtowners to cross the bridge. Broderick’s burgers come either cheffed up, like the duck burger with pear fig jam and arugula (pair it with a pint of Angry Orchard cider) and the Lebanese-spiced lamb burger with goat cheese (try it with Six Rivers’ macadamia nut porter), or down and divey like the Johnny Cash with house-made BBQ sauce and the Gold Rush, topped with bacon mac and cheese. Broderick now has outposts in midtown and Walnut Creek, with more in the works, but there’s something special about the original’s ramshackle simplicity. 319 6th St. 372-2436. broderickroadhouse.com

Raley Field

One of the charms of West Sacramento’s riverfront is the ambient sound of the seventh-inning stretch wafting out of this minor league stadium, home to Sacramento’s beloved River Cats, one of the winningest Triple-A baseball teams since 2000. While catching a Kings game at the Golden 1 Center may be the hottest sports ticket in town, there’s nothing quite like the timeless, summery nostalgia of a day at the ballpark. The new baseball season began April 6, and foodies will appreciate a revamped menu for 2017, which will include offerings like street tacos and gourmet lamb burgers and falafel burgers. But some things thankfully never change: you’ll still be able to cool off with a classic Merlino’s Freeze. 400 Ballpark Dr. 376-4700. raleyfield.com

Lake Washington Sailing Club

Never heard of Lake Washington? Little more than a widening of the shipping channel near the towering rice silos you can see from Chando’s Tacos, it shelters one of the Port Brewery District’s hidden surprises, a charming private sailing club established in 1934 on a thumb-sized peninsula that welcomes new members warmly. Learn to navigate a dinghy for fun or take part in friendly club races—you’ll gain a new appreciation for the Delta breeze, and work up a thirst for the nearby craft beer. 3251 Beacon Blvd. 374-0433. lwsailing.org

-What’s Next-

Sometime in late summer, Drake’s Brewing Company, one of the progenitors of the West Coast craft beer movement, will debut as the food and beverage operator at the Barn. The San Leandro-based brewery opened Drake’s Dealership in 2015, now the buzziest beer garden in Oakland, and the West Sacramento location promises to be no less popular, offering Adirondack chairs ranged around fire pits and pints of Drake’s popular IPAs, as well as a rotating selection from local breweries, wood-fired pizzas and even coffee service for morning bike commuters. Also breaking ground in TBD will be a mixed-use project called West, which is slated for completion in 2019 and will feature restaurants, retail and housing. Its cool factor will come from the proposed public “urban beach,” the brainchild of landscape architectural firm Quadriga’s John Suesens, a UC Davis grad. A sandy expanse that will run along the River Walk Trail, the beach will finally allow Sacramentans room to lounge, bask and exercise along the riverfront like the groovy Californians we are.

-Gimme Shelter-

If you’d like to sit on your front porch and take in the evening’s entertainment at the Barn, or maybe walk to a Kings game at the new arena, then The Moderns at Eames Walk, which went on sale in April, are for you. These townhouse-style, single-family dwellings, from the Barn and Golden 1 Center developer Mark Friedman, are loosely inspired by the livable mid-century modern aesthetic of Sacramento design legend Ray Eames and her husband, Charles. But act fast, as the list of interested buyers already tops 400 (you can sign up at moderns-tbd.com). S

Fruit Trees Donated to West Sacramento Urban Farm

An urban farm in West Sacramento is getting a donation of 70 fruit trees and berry plants from Stark Bro’s Nurseries & Orchards Company. This gift will make the city’s first urban orchard a reality, giving newly settled refugees farm training and production experience, and provide the local West Sacramento community with fresh, nutritious produce.

“This donation marks a tipping point in our efforts to support the growth of urban farms in West Sacramento through the creation of our first urban orchard,” says Mayor Christopher Cabaldon. “With the generous support of Stark Bro’s, we are able to create more opportunities for refugees to have access to land and practice culturally appropriate farming methods. Their efforts will, in turn, increase residents’ access to locally grown produce and beautify our community.”

The 4.5-acre site located at 491 Regatta Lane, is part of the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) New Roots program, run by Community and Economic Development Program Manager Tom Stein. Here, refugee and immigrant groups can learn to become self-sufficient and contribute to their new home through community gardening, nutrition education, and small-business farming.

Southport Levee Improvement Project Update; South River Road Closure Map

Portions of South River Road in West Sacramento are now permanently closed due construction of the Southport Levee Improvement Project. Earthwork is underway and is expected to continue into the fall 2017. Activities include clearing along the land side of the levee followed by demolition.

South River Road has been closed at Gregory Ave, Davis Rd, Linden Rd, and Locks Dr.

Traffic will be impacted due to road closures, and traffic control will occur along South River Road between Locks Drive and Gregory Avenue during clearing activities. Village Parkway is an alternate route available to the public.

  • South River Road from Locks Drive to Davis Road: North end at Locks Dr. will remain available for local access only (will NOT be maintained by the City and users will be accessing this roadway at their own risk).
  • Closure of Linden Road and Davis Road at intersection with South River Road: Access for the marinas will be via the north end at Locks Drive and will remain open until completion of the new access roads from Village Parkway.
  • Closure of South River Road from Davis Road to Gregory Avenue: NO public access allowed.

Road access map below:

The Southport Levee Improvement Project will implement flood risk-reduction measures along one of the most vulnerable levee segments along the Sacramento River in the Southport area. The Project extends along the west bank of the Sacramento River, from just south of the Barge Canal, downstream 5.6 miles to the South Cross Levee. It will bring this section of levee up to current standards with Federal and State levee criteria, as well as provide opportunities for ecosystem restoration and public recreation.

Mayor Launches Kids’ Home Run at State of the City Address

Mayor Christopher Cabaldon outlined the City of West Sacramento Kids’ Home Run last night during his annual state of the city address, with the goal of making West Sacramento the best place to have a child, raise a family and grow up as a kid.

“The City of West Sacramento has been able to recruit a diversity of employers and our residents are getting better skills through the West Sacramento Kids’ Home Run. We are preparing our youth for high growth, high wage entry level positions today, and bolstering our local workforce for years to come. We want to give every advantage to West Sacramento children, from cradle to college or career,” said Mayor Cabaldon. “The West Sacramento Kids’ Home Run does just that.”

Kids’ Home Run is an educational and jobs initiative that combines new and existing programs for youth ages four to eighteen. It consists of four base programs:

  • A child reaches first base under Kids’ Home Run by enrolling in Universal Preschools for West Sacramento’s (UP4WS). Under UP4WS, each student will be connected to high-quality preschool education.
  • Once a student graduates from a UP4WS preschool and enters kindergarten within the Washington Unified School District, he or she reaches second base, which provides access to a guaranteed college savings account of $50, with the goal of a match for a family deposit.

“This partnership is truly symbolic of an entire village coming together to raise and support our children throughout their educational journey to have the best chance at a successful future,” said Washington Unified Superintendent Linda C. Luna. “We have a unique opportunity in West Sacramento to not only transform our school district but our entire community into one that is a gateway to extraordinary possibilities for ALL children—the Kid’s Home Run is the perfect catalyst to ensure our continued success.”

  • Third base gives access for West Sacramento high school students to paid internships in a relevant industry sector or job-type if they are enrolled in an integrated college and career pathway.

“High school students with internships in their field of study have a competitive advantage in landing jobs and will earn more in their lifetimes,” said FutureReady Executive Director Chris Worden. Employers who offer internships build our local workforce, support our high schools, and create a sustainable talent pipeline to their business. Future Ready facilitates internship matches between students in career pathways and our leading employers. In the process, West Sacramento will become a national leader at providing incentives for youth to gain the skills they need.”

  • Finally, a student reaches home plate when he or she graduates from high school in West Sacramento and directly enrolls full-time for up to one year in a program of study at one of the Sacramento City College’s three campuses. Tuition is fee free. Access to a scholarship of up to $1,000 will launch at a later date.

“This is an exciting time for Sacramento City College and the entire Los Rios Community College District. We are proud to partner with Mayor Cabaldon and the City of West Sacramento on this innovative plan,” said Brian King, Chancellor of the Los Rios Community College District. “The West Sacramento College Promise, as a key part of the Kids’ Home Run, sends a clear message to young students that the cost of a college degree is no longer a barrier to reaching your goals. We hope to build on this partnership and hold it up as a model that can be replicated throughout the capital region.”

Students will be motivated in this process by the ability to earn digital badges, or virtual credentials that track their skills development. Student completion of badges will unlock new opportunities for them, such as preferential hiring for internships, and help determine how large of a scholarship each student receives.

“With workforce development as a high-priority for the West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce, Kids Home Run knocks it out of the park for our kids, and our business community,” said West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce CEO Verna Sulpizio. “This initiative gives our Chamber members active involvement in the development and review of our career pathways so that the most relevant, industry specific, and timely academic programs will be provided to the students to best prepare them for college and entry level careers.  With the Chamber’s ongoing participation, we will ensure that West Sacramento kids have the best opportunity possible to build their skills and be prepared for our ever-changing job market.”

The initiative begins in the summer of  2017 and is funded by a quarter percent sales tax revenue from ballot Measure E passed by 65% of West Sacramento voters in November, 2016.  The measure helps fund potential areas of investment: repairing roads, building and maintaining bicycle/pedestrian trails, reducing homelessness and improving educational and career opportunities for youth, and enhancing internet access and use of smart technologies. The West Sacramento Kids’ Home Run is being implemented in partnership with the Washington Unified School District, FutureReady, a project of the West Sacramento Community Foundation, the West Sacramento Chamber of Commerce and the Los Rios Community College District.

For more information, please visit the Kids’ Home Run website.
