The Golden Bear - Sacramento, CA

The Golden Bear

I was in downtown Sacramento on Saturday. I’d already had a BIG lunch* and was checking out a few specialty shops, a couple of which had closed. I was waiting for a light to turn green when I spied The Golden Bear restaurant which I’d seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives recently. I knew I was sort of close, but I was still surprised to see it right there. I fumbled for my camera but didn’t get it out fast enough before the light turned green. I drove around the block a couple of times, hoping to get a quick photo, but they didn’t turn out very well.
I thought about going back to the restaurant later in the day for coffee and dessert, but I was still very full when I headed home. I’ll think about going there on one of my next monthly trips to Sacramento.

*I can now tell you that I had lunch at The Melting Pot, a chain of fondue restaurants, one in downtown Sacramento.  My daughter-in-law Laurie had been wanting to go there for a long time, but it's quite pricey.  For Laurie and my son Robbie's wedding anniversary in June, I bought a gift certificate which would cover most of a nice dinner at The Melting Pot.  Laurie actually screamed when she opened the card.  I'm so sneaky!  By the way, they did go to The Melting Pot near San Francisco on their anniversary.  They spent all of the gift certificate plus $1.

    Oh, just reading about The Melting Pot makes me want to go back! We enjoyed every moment of our three hour dinner! Thank you for thinking of us and being so sneaky!
