Clubhouse 56: doesn't look fancy on the outside, is VERY inviting on the inside!

Clubhouse 56: doesn't look fancy on the outside, is VERY inviting on the inside!

You wanna go where everybody knows your name? In East Sacramento, Clubhouse 56 is the closest thing you will find to a Ted Danson-like "Cheers" atmosphere. Located in a strip mall right near the corners of 56th and H streets, Clubhouse 56 may look very average from the outside, but once you step through one of two entrances, you see where the appeal appears.

Tricked out metal counter tops that have a NASCAR pattern etched on them, big monitors on every wall tuned to all your national pro sporting events, all the main beers you'd want on tap and in bottles, all the top shelf liquor you can shake a stick at, and everything on their menu from tacos to burgers to quesadillas to chicken wings... and then there are the bartenders: Alex, Sean, Chris, and the big hitter, Jimmy a.k.a. "Jimmy-Jim." Yes, I am biased.

Pancakes never tasted so good

Pancakes never tasted so good

On Saturday morning, I dragged my butt out of bed at 5:30 a.m., loaded my bike in the car and drove off to Auburn for the Gold Century ride.

Mother's Day treat: Homemade scones

I have never been a big fan of scones.  They have always been a bit dry for my taste.  That all changed thanks to Barbara Bowers of Rose Mountain Manor in Colfax, CA.  Barbara and her wonderful recipe were featued on News10 Midday and News10.net back in October of 2002.  From that point on, this recipe has been a staple for special events and just because. 

Ingredients 

  • 3 1/3 cups Bisquick
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 tabelspoons softened butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup fruit*

Directions

Blend Bisquick and sugar. Cut in butter to form a crumbly mixture.  Beat eggs and milk together and add to dry mix.  Stir with a fork until just mixed (do not overmix).  Drop into four piles onto a baking sheet.  Cut into four pieces each with about one-eight inch between.  Sprinkle with sugar.  Bake at 400 degrees for
