Elk's Lodge # 6 was built to accommodate both the needs of its membership and the surrounding community. It remains our ongoing goal to make available one of the region's most affordable and historic meeting spaces for groups large and small to congregate in the spirit of fellowship and common purpose, since 1895.
Streets of London Pub harks back to traditional London pubs with ice-cold pints and ample coverage of rugby and soccer. On the menu of hearty English fare, fries in the witness-protection program call themselves "chips" and lay low under toppings such as gravy, cheese and beans, or cheese and bacon, or pair up with fish in a platter of classic fish 'n' chips. The bangers-and-mash meal allows thick, juicy sausages to snuggle up on a hill of mashed potatoes. Along with food, the pub dishes out events; diners can throw back Guinnesses during weekly pub quizzes, compete for everlasting fame during monthly bingo tournaments, or stop in for Pint Night to enjoy pints on the outdoor patio.
Every month, Florez Bar & Grill's bartenders reach for a new bottle of premium tequila to pour tastes for the restaurant's Tequila Tuesdays. Drinkers learn about the difference between a?ejo and reposado tequila and which varieties flavor certain cocktails best. However, that's just a taste of what's available at Florez. Chefs cook up a full menu Mexican classics, from homemade tamales to carnitas tacos and shrimp fajitas, as well as select American dishes, including turkey-club sandwiches at lunch.
The mariachi band that entertains on Friday nights and Sunday mornings also mixes it up: though the ensemble calls themselves "Mariachi Tradicional," they've been known to break out into Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" given the excuse. The mornings are also made special by Florez's breakfast. It's served until 3 p.m. each day for any late risers or confused time travelers, and the Sacramento News & Review named it the Best Under-the-Radar Mexican Brunch in 2013.
Inside the dining room at The Izakaya, sushi chefs create pairs of nigiri sushi, with cuts of fresh tuna or steamed prawns atop bite-sized morsels of rice. The chefs also create house special ramen dishes and specialty sushi rolls, such as the fried Golden California Roll, and the Rock & Roll, whose shrimp tempura and avocado are served in tiny leather pants. Behind the stone-topped bar, The Izakaya pours wine, draft Kirin and Asahi beers, and a slate of traditional and fruit-flavored sakes.
Yolo Gyros and Burgers Sports Bar and Lounge doesn't just serve up wings, gyros, mozzarella sticks, and chicken strips?they serve all of them atop mountains of onion rings and fries as part of one entree. The meal is called Kings Feast, and it's designed for six to nine people. The gargantuan culinary challenge is the heartiest among Yolo's hearty dishes, which range from chili-smothered nachos to the four-pound Yolo burger, free for folks who finish it in under one hour. To complement the meals, the bar slings a selection of global wines and beers. And between satisfying mouthfuls of outsized bar food, guests can take in the big game on thirteen 50-inch LED TVs. Local live musicians, meanwhile, take the stage on nights without major sporting events to make up for the lack of referees blowing classic rock melodies into their whistles.
Though Crepe Escape stays open from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., the café never stops serving breakfast. Chefs blend gourmet ingredients to concoct unique takes on classic morning-time eats, such as the crab cake Florentine version of eggs benedict or stacks of waffles topped with fruit a dollop of whipped cream. Egg-based crepes sate sweet and savory teeth with a bevy of filling options from strawberries to curried chicken. For those who adhere to a strict breakfast regimen of one grapefruit and one boiled marshmallow, the café also dishes up light salads, sandwiches, and pastas. Crepe Escape's espresso bar and wine list provide drinks that pair pleasantly with any dish or time of day.
