ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ELK GROVE, CA - Elk Grove and surrounding communities have been overlooked and under-appreciated when it comes to a regional theater and community arts center.

The need for the American Renaissance Institute of Arts is staggering, as community members thirst for arts education and performances ranging from ballet to musicals to theater to orchestral, jazz and ensemble-like performances. The research shows that nothing of this kind has been proposed, or even thought of in the private sector.

This venture was conceived from the ground-up to be self-sustaining, year in and year out without having to depend on money from rich patrons of the arts, without the need for grants, loans or angel investors.

I've been in North Highlands a lot lately and tried this taqueria. I got three tacos for $1.90 a pop. Dang! They were good but I'm not going to pay that much for the smaller sized, taco truck tacos. I'll just hit up a truck next time and save a couple of bucks.

If you're there I recommend the Al Pastor.

Los Jarritos

This place is super cheap and pretty good too. This is what you get for under 5 bucks!!! Beat that all you $15 a plate joints!!!  I've been coming here for  years and it's one of my regular spots for us poor folks. It's on Broadway right across from the DMV headquarters.

I discovered this unique combo and shot it to the top of my new found food list and loved it so much,  I now care to share.  Here's how the menu reads; Smoked Turkey Breast, Smoked Bacon, Monterey Jack, Cranberry Lemon (zest) Mayonnaise on...wait for it...Cinnamon Cobblestone Bread...grilled!  As if that weren't enough, they serve it with ice cold crunchy baby carrot stick. It's a 10 for $8.95!

This was my third time here and I've really been wanting to like this place. Really! I'm trying since it's pretty close to my house.

The first two times were very mediocre mostly because they served my food pretty darn cold. This time I stepped up and got the rib/ tri-tip combo. I would recommend this if you happen upon this place.

It's hidden behind Burger King on the west side of I-80 off of West El Camino.

I tried this fish burrito, off menu, since they had mariscos. Hmm, it was okay. I wouldn't get it again.
