Cheese never goes out of style

It’s back! After selling out in its first year, the Sacramento Grilled Cheese Festival has returned for a second weekend of many variations on melted cheese between two slices of bread. Who knew so many Sacramentans would pay serious dollars to sample grilled cheese outside of their kitchens? The Saturday, April 14, event is smaller and adults only (21+). A $60 general admission ticket gets you unlimited samples of beer, wine and grilled cheeses from 1 to 4 p.m. The Sunday, April 15 festival is a family-friendly free-for-all with bounce houses, face paint, games and live music. A $10 ticket gets you admission only, though, so come with plenty of cash on hand to buy quarter sandwich samples, beer and wine. The vendors sizzling cheesy bread on a grill include Oak Park Brewing Co., Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen, Kupros, Broderick, Bacon Mania, the Pop Up Truck Sacramento, Kaliko’s Hawaiian Kitchen and Cousins Maine Lobster, among others.
