Now that's good Sushi

Now that's good Sushi

I went to Mikuni's for the first time this week and it was delicious!

Two tips if you're planning to go:

1) Make sure you're starving hungry. The rolls are huge and stuffed and will fill you up fast

2) Just ask your waiter/waitress for advice. There are a ton of choices, set your parameters then ask and they will point you to the perfect dish.

Road Trip Bar & Grill Announces New "Spartan Burgers" to Help Local Schools

Not one, but two Road Trip Bar & Grill burgers have been chosen by the students of Esparto High School to be the new Esparto Spartan Burgers. With the purchase of either of the two new Spartan Burgers, Road Trip Bar & Grill will donate a portion of the profits to supporting the Esparto High School and Middle School football and cheerleading teams.

A group of twelve students were chosen to put the Esparto Spartan burger on the map. On Wednesday, June 1, six members of the cheerleading team and six members of the football team gathered around the table in Area 51 of Road Trip Bar & Grill for a tasting of three gourmet burgers. The students wrote reviews, cast their votes and the results are in.

Of the three freshly made burgers, the students of Esparto High voted two to a tie. The Road Trip Bar & Grill will be offering both as the new Spartan Burgers.
