The Shady Lady is, perhaps, my favorite watering hole in Sacramento. But it's not just that Chris Tucker is mixologist among men - no - it's the whole place. The artwork, the collectables, the painted walls, the "Shady" photos and the cuisine. It's gourmet libations take "The Shady" from kitschy class to absolute destination spot. It's a place I love to take clients, friends from out of town and girlfriends for a night out. Jason, Alex and Garrett have done a sensational job of marrying old time speak easy with modern gourmet. These charms are ever so evident in their staff, their menu and their creativity. Oh, and did I tell you about the performances?

|The entire ensemble. I love that dotted swiss, peach top from forever 21. Here is an alternative. And if you admire kelly as much as I do, then perhaps this is a better choice?|
|I wish this had come out better. It's difficult to take a very professional photo while you gush over your subject. But this ring really is super cute. It's made by Little Rooms.|
|My local. The corner of 14th and R Streets.|
|The repro tin ceiling are among the greatest details. These guys have thought of everything. I wish we had to enter through a phone booth with a password!|
