Jamie's Bar & Grill is one of the hidden gems of the Southside Park neighborhood. The little assuming place sits alone on the west end of Broadway, with a few parking spots in front. It reportedly can get packed by the lunch crowd downtown, being known for great steak sandwiches and other satisfying meat dishes.
It was not the ordinary quiet night there last night, Thursday Oct. 30th. A local group dubbed "Sacramento Dive Bar Connoisseurs" started piling in at 8pm. This group, established in August 2004, has been visiting a different local 'dive bar' every other Thursday night since they formed. Although Jamie's is primarily a restaurant, it met the group's criteria since it has a full bar, is locally owned and operated, and has unique rustic charms (e.g. an antiquated cash register, a buck & bison head on the wall, and a classy oak bar).
Since this was the night before Halloween, a few of the divebar connoisseurs showed up in costume - such as Batman, Urkel, a cigarette girl, and a disco man. The service was fun and friendly. A few locals from Southside Park neighborhood were seen as well, along with some Ultimate Frisbee friends who were playing at Oneil Park a block away. A good time was had by all!
If you haven't checked out Jamie's, make sure to give it a try. You won't be disappointed. Or, if you love divebars then come join the Sacramento Divebar Connoisseurs on a future outing.
