Family-owned Husick's offers gourmet foodstuffs and gift baskets, wines, and periodic dinners in a charming country store. With a seat at a Winemaker's Dinner, you'll join up to 20 guests for a sumptuous, seasonal meal in the heart of the country, complete with an introduction to some regional wines and a chance to play footsy with a devilishly handsome Tule elk. The menu abounds with fresh, local ingredients, starting with crab cakes dressed in red-pepper aioli sauce ($11) and a salad of field greens, delta pears, Cypress Grove chevre and pear vinaigrette ($13). Roasted sage and butternut squash soup comes drizzled with truffle oil ($11) and tastes like autumn in a bowl, without the unpleasantness of dry leaf-bits between your teeth. For the main course, feast on braised short ribs in pinot noir sauce, roasted rosemary-garlic fingerling potatoes, french-cut green beans with prosciutto and mushrooms ($37) and a glass of Spoto cabernet ($21). Crème brûlée served with fresh berries and mint in chocolate cups ($14) provides an elegant companion to Bogle port ($8). Throughout your meal, you'll sample house wines from the likes of Old Vine Zin, James Blake, Tierra Del Ore, and Heringer Estates.

A burbling waterfall wall and live palm fronds welcome clients to the earth-toned oasis of Elk Grove Massage29. Before beginning any session, the spa’s licensed therapists consult with clients to determine the best massage for their needs; it could be Swedish strokes to slake general stress or hot stones to melt away tension and determine which extremities are really just frozen burritos. The therapists also specialize in hot-pack massage, which uses grain-filled pouches that are heated to 170–180 degrees in order to release tension and increase flexibility.
