Here are a few things to do On a West Sac Visit…
Order a burger at Broderick Roadhouse (319 Sixth St.; broderick1893.com)
Our favorite: the Johnny Cash burger, winner of the 2013 Sacramento Burger Battle People’s Choice Award. So named for the house-pickled peppers that make up its “ring of fire,” this tasty burger may make you want to sing.
LEAN, MEAN VEGGIE MACHINE
Pick up local produce at West Sac Veggie Trike (location varies; facebook.com/westsacveggitrike)
The trike offers seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as other consumables—and locally made soap, too. Check the Facebook page for days and times.
Walk or bike at the Barge Canal Recreational Access (2100 Jefferson Blvd.)
Prefer to be on the water? Carry in your rowboat, canoe or kayak.
PLUMP AND TASTY
Buy two dozen ravioli to go at Club Pheasant (2525 Jefferson Blvd.; theclubpheasant.com)
This year, the West Sacramento landmark (once a speakeasy) will celebrate 80 years in business. Fun fact: Every Monday, former owner Pete Palamidessi makes the ravioli with nephew Ron.
Bowl a few sets with the kids at Capitol Bowl (900 West Capitol Ave.; capbowl.com)
Once part of the complex that held the famous Hotel El Rancho and a drive-in movie theater, Capitol Bowl now offers a patio with fire pits and Caps Bar & Grill, a family-friendly restaurant.
