Wednesday, September 20th ,We will meet at the Loomis Basin Brewery Gastropub Smokehouse. As usual, people will gather at around 5:30 or so to enjoy barbequed specialties in quaint and curious downtown Loomis (directions follow). The menu was favorably reviewed by the Sacramento Bee as well as the Child Family, the Costigans, and others too numerous to mention. The menu can be found here: http://www.loomisbasinbrewing.com/menus/
The LBB Smokehouse is an offshoot of the popular Loomis Basin Brewery and features their line of craft beers as well as the flavors of smoked meats.
September 2023 Natter
What is a Natter?
From anywhere, go to Interstate 80 by whatever means appeals to you and head toward Loomis (between Rocklin and Penryn, just in case you haven’t heard of Loomis). Exit at the “Loomis Horseshoe Bar Rd” Turnoff. Proceed North on Horseshoe Bar Rd into the town of Loomis. At the intersection of Horseshoe Bar Rd and Taylor Rd (formerly US 40), proceed through the intersection, make the first left turn and park. The Smokehouse is on Horseshoe Bar Rd. It is just behind the Subway Sandwich Shop on Taylor Rd and across the street from Taylor’s Frosty & Burger stand. The Bee article mentioned that it was not easy to find, if you are looking for signage.
Note to our friends who may wish to travel by way of Auburn-Folsom Rd to Horseshoe Bar Rd and thence into Loomis, the way into Loomis can be a little tricky at the various intersections of Horseshoe Bar, Laird Rd, and I think some random 3rd road. Follow the signs to Loomis &/or Freeway carefully!! Personally, I’d go to Sierra College Blvd to I-80 and then on to Loomis.
