Fake spring

Spring Vegetable and Chickpea Hummus Bowl, Magpie

Let’s face it, Sacramento doesn’t get much of a spring: Typically winter segues into a week or two of lovely, mild weather and then poof, it’s time to burn. All the more reason to fake the season whenever possible. Magpie’s happy hour menu offers an option with its Spring Vegetable and Chickpea Hummus Bowl ($10). Served weekdays between 2 p.m. and 4:45 p.m., it makes for a hearty late afternoon meal with an array of roasted vegetables, herbed greens, flavorful housemade hummus, a six-minute egg and toast. It may be a million degrees outside, but your appetite will never know the difference. 1601 16th Street, www.magpiecafe.com.
