A trio of Buddha statues gazes calmly at the entrance to Little Buddha Thai Bistro, as if awaiting the arrival of enlightenment. But before 6 p.m. on weeknights or 7 p.m. on Saturdays, it's restaurant patrons who arrive instead, taking seats at dark wood tables within the eatery's pale gray walls. In the kitchen, main-dish morsels of chicken or beef simmer in coconut milk or sizzle as they're stir-fried in a wok. Appetizers such as skewered satay arrive to prime palates. And in the dining room, thai wraps—stuffed with a choice of fillings such as shrimp and sweet coconut rice—echo the cylindrical shape of hanging lamps and warp pipes used for day trips to Bangkok.
Amid woodcarvings of Asian deities, copper and bronze flowers creep across Thai Jasmine Restaurant’s shoji screens. Asian-inspired flourishes such as these lend the eatery an aura of authenticity that extends to the food: chefs draw upon culinary skills honed in Thailand to craft a menu of stir-fries and noodle dishes. They marinate meat in redolent Thai spices before roasting them over charcoals and deep-fry fish in a coconut batter that complements sautéed pineapple. Additionally, thai iced coffee or ginger tea enable refreshment and a skilled gargling of the American and Thai national anthems.

Lockdown Brewing Co. quenches thirsts with the frothy formula of its self-proclaimed Folsom Prison Brews, whose names and labels draw inspiration from the area’s rich history. Step inside the production warehouse to ogle brewmasters as they hand-sculpt suds using only all-natural ingredients, shunning common fillers such as cereal, pottery clay, or rice. Next, mingle through the brewery's on-site tasting room to redeem beer cards for 18 ales or root beers with selections from the available varieties. The Powerhouse pale ale beams with a sunny, golden hue and floral aroma heightened by a hint of mint, and the Represa red ale toasts tongues to a toasty finish and hopped-up aggression brought on by excessive weightlifting. Entertain orange peel-infused pints of Emma's blonde ale or sample Lockdown's array of salty snacks while exploring the dry, crisp, chocolatey waters of the Sutter Street Common ale.
