A Little Bit of Class Comes to Fairfield By Rob Saunders
There is no such thing as “authentic” Mexican food in California. Our Gringo-tourist mentality has dumbed down the true flavors and combinations of the real Mexican style of eating.
However, if you crave what I call “Mexi-Cali” dining, I highly recommend Favela Fusion. Finally, a bit od flare comes to Fairfield!
Favela Fusion is a funny name for a restaurant, and there is no fusion involved in the cooking except for the upscale way it is served.
Owner Veronica Favela has gone the extra mile to provide a somewhat traditional fare, with a twist in the way the dishes are prepared and presented.
I suppose the “fusion” comes in the fact that the decor of the restaurant is not your normal sombreros and bullfighters on the wall motif, but rather a delightful array of fine art in the Spanish style.
Besides the traditional burritos, which Veronica is famous for, the menu features enchiladas with a mole, fresh fruits and vegetables and the use of non-traditional foods. The best deal on the menu are the sandwiches.
The bar area is quite large and boasts 43 different types of tequilas and the Margaritas are made the original way using agave syrup instead of Triple Sec.
Favela Fusion is not pricey and the service is prompt and friendly. The restaurant is located at 1500 Oliver Rd. in Fairfield, Ca.
This past April the Sacramento River Cats held a Mommy and Me Day at Raley Field. The outcome was a huge success with hundreds of parents and kids from around the Sacramento area. As a result of the success and excitement of the event, we will be taking part in another Mommy and Me Day here at Raley Field. We wanted to reach out to you personally as we share your commitment to bringing safe, affordable, and fun activities for parents and children.
Mommy and Me Day will take place on Wednesday August 11th from 10 AM to Noon. The event will be held on a non-game day and admission is free. Parents and kids, under the age of 6, are encouraged to come out enjoy a day on the field. Activities will include running the bases, catch, tee-ball, soccer, arts and crafts, cartoons on the video board, and other fun activities. Parents and children will also enjoy snacks, beverages, and a visit from Dinger, the mascot. Kids will receive a River Cats & Raley’s “gift pack” while supplies last. For convenience, we have waivers and information posted on our website: (http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/promotions/page.jsp?ymd=20100707&content_id=12030804&vkey=promo_t105&fext=.jsp&sid=t105 ), which parents can visit to print out mandatory waivers and the schedule of activities for the day. We encourage parents and guardians to print and fill out the forms prior to coming to the field, so that they will not have to wait in long lines. Hope to see you there!

HI Julie — Nice site, like the look and feel, let me know when you want to have coffee/lunch? Cheers, Mike Curtin
My name is Fast Eddie, a local cyclist that offers fully guided historic bike tours in Sacramento. I provide a touring bike, helmet, guide ( that would be me ) and lunch. Have a look at my site….I have several really nice galleries with slideshows of the Sacramento Historic Tours and also the Delta Tours to give you an idea.
The Delta tours out in Clarksburg include a behind the scenes historic tour of Old Sugar Mill and wine tasting…these trips are a great get away for locals AND tourists. I am all about the local experience that creates an unexpected and lasting memory for visitors to the area!
Coffee with Personality says it all. Voted best of in the Sacramento News & Review for our blended coffee drink “THE CURE” Sure to cure you… of whatever it is you need to be cured of.
I’m Ken, the owner of this off the beaten path coffee shop in Cameron Park. 2531 Merrychase Drive. We feature the best coffee for some of the most discriminating pallets but it’s served with a personality that makes it clear we’re glad you came and hope you come back soon. Also featuring Breyers ALL NATURAL ice cream. The BIG’S'Bagel Sandwich.

Hey wanted to blog about urban winery and craft brewery side by side in Loomis. Check out live music and mobile food every Saturday at Casque Wines at 3273 Swetzer Road in Loomis. LOOMIS? Yea, get over it.
Full disclosure: I own the winery and love the beer across the driveway at Loomis Basin Brewery.
Damon Lyon Says:
For those who have never visited the Crocker Art Museum, I definitely recommend going. While in the Downtown area, one might also tour the Capitol Building and peruse Old Sacramento. Old Sacramento has some very notible restaraunts including the Pilot House on the Delta King and The Fire House, which is a designated historical landmark.
Another interesting event is the Second Saturday art tour, which features a different gallery each month on the “Second Saturday” between 6pm and 10pm. See website for current event.
By the way, two thumbs up for Liesel Hanson; I, too, love French Toast.
