Irish pub to replace Soga's

"Brothers Simon and Henry de Vere White are co-owners of the popular de Vere's Irish Pub in Sacramento and will be branching out to Davis by September 2011. The de Vere Whites hail from Ireland and plan to bring an Irish flair to the Downtown Davis dining experience.

"We're an Irish pub, we cater to a wide variety of people, from families with kids to the business community," said Simon. "We're very food focused here, so I think what helps us be successful is being family owned and operated."

De Vere's Irish Pub signed a 10-year lease at 217 E St., a 4,800 square foot location formerly occupied by Soga's. The new location is 1,000 square feet larger than the Sacramento location.

De Vere's will take over the building formerly occupied by Soga's, an Italian and American food restaurant that permanently closed on Nov. 21 2010, after filing for bankruptcy.

"We liked the look of the building, we wanted to be downtown," said Simon. "We thought that downtown Davis had a great feel to it, and it seems that that's where the focus of the food industry is."

De Vere's will provide a hearty menu filled with traditional Irish food, as well as the familiar cheeseburger and sandwich for the more timid restaurant-goers.

Most of the food served will be made fresh in-house, including curing their own bacon, butchering their own meat and making their own pudding.

"We like to say we make everything here, except for Ranch," said Simon.

Despite Soga's recent bankruptcy, the de Vere Whites were not discouraged from branching out into Davis with a second pub after two successful years in Sacramento.

"We were always very intrigued with Davis. Great community and culture there. Family-oriented town, family business," said Simon. "We thought that going into a place that has a university system was very compelling and thought we would be a good fit for Davis."

For those looking for an authentic Irish pub experience, de Vere's is the place to go. De Vere's Irish Pub provides both authentic Irish cuisine and authentic Irish interior design complete with family pictures, paintings and Irish antiques.

"In Ireland, kids are at the pubs. You're born in the pub, grow up in the pub, get married in the pub," said Simon. "Every Sunday is family Sunday, we discount the kids menu. We definitely try to attract the family aspect."

De Vere's, winner of Sacramento Magazine's Best Pub Food award of 2010, prides itself on its hospitality, food and cozy atmosphere.

The opening of de Vere's is good news for the alcohol savvy as well, offering an extensive alcohol menu with 89 varieties of whiskey and 66 varieties of scotch."

de Vere's To Open in Davis

"The owners of de Vere's Irish Pub have announced that a Davis location for their popular watering hole will open in September.

A lease was signed in March for a 4,800 square foot space at 217 E St. in downtown Davis, a space formerly occupied by Soga's restaurant. Like its downtown Sacramento location, the Davis branch of de Vere's will focus on Irish-themed drinks and decor, and a menu that includes house-made bacon, blood sausages and other pub fare. The Davis location will be about 1,000 square feet larger than its Sacramento pub, and includes a wraparound patio.

Co-owner Henry de Vere White, who once ran a college pub in Seattle, feels confident that Davis is a good fit for his Irish pub.

"We love the food movement out there and just relate well to the area," said de Vere White. "We're going to cater to the Davis community as a whole, from the professors and college students to those with families and kid-friendly brunches. We want locals to come in and have a pint and have a nice change of pace."

de Vere signed a 10-year lease for the space with two five year options. The pub will be neighbors with a variety of other watering holes and restaurants, including Cafe Bernardo and Burgers and Brew, and officials with the City of Davis' Economic Development Department are encouraged with the news about de Vere's coming to town.

"Davis prides itself in its range of dining and beverage establishments," said Katherine Hess, Community Development Department Administrator. "We've heard a lot of comments that people would like to see something that's not Thai food and pizza, so this is encouraging. We want a wide variety of restaurants for visitors and residents alike."

Remodeling the space is underway and the de Vere family plans to travel to Ireland to pick up decorative items for the pub. de Vere's has hired architects both in Ireland and locally to complete the project.

"Pub life is more than just having a bar," said de Vere White. "We want the college students to come back on a road trip later in life and remember de Vere's as a place where they formed friendships.""

Dine Downtown: Preview of de Vere’s Irish Pub Menu

De Vere’s not only offers the largest whiskey collection in Sacramento, it offers a full restaurant menu including weekday happy hours, daily lunch and dinner and even a weekend brunch menu.

Dine Downtown: Preview of de Vere’s Irish Pub Menu

By Tracy Arnold

"Prior to this last Wednesday, the only reason I had ever visited de Vere’s Irish Pub was for the occasional pint of Guinness. If you are like me, I challenge you to change your perspective and discover the food behind the drink. De Vere’s not only offers the largest whiskey collection in Sacramento, it offers a full restaurant menu including weekday happy hours, daily lunch and dinner and even a weekend brunch menu (that I notice includes a bacon waffle – with chopped bacon in the waffle batter – intriguing!).

For those of you who have never visited de Vere’s, it is a traditional Irish pub – loud atmosphere, table tucked in nooks, two large bars and an outside patio. It is a great place for happy hour after a long day or participate in a weekly trivia night contest. However, I discovered they should also be on one’s list of dinner destinations.

de Vere’s Dine Downtown menu offers a three course dinner comprised of either beet salad or soup of the day (we had Irish Wedding soup, YUM!), followed by a second course of either braised lamb shoulder stew or lemon Dijon chicken, and the dessert course choices include Bailey’s cheesecake or crispy bread pudding served with vanilla ice cream and fresh berries.

The beet salad, is a mache lettuce salad with both golden and red beets and herbed goat cheese. The Irish wedding soup was my favorite choice in this course, best description is a home-made chicken sausage and noodle soup with kale and beans – exactly what this January weather calls for. The lamb dish was served like a stew with barley, fresh carrots and a mint salsa that made the entire dish pop. The chicken is a de Vere’s favorite, roasted chicken and red seasoned potatoes served with cabbage – after all what is an Irish meal without cabbage?

For dessert, the crispy bread pudding alone is worth trying out de Vere’s Dine Downtown menu. It is one of those dishes that will soon be featured on the Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate - it is a cross between French toast and a churro, deep fried goodness rolled in sugar and cinnamon served with ice cream, fresh raspberries and blueberries topped with caramel – it cannot get any better!

While there, I also learned that de Vere’s just added to their regular menu a fully loaded (with peas and bacon) mac and cheese that has the potential to surpass Esquire Grill’s as the best mac and cheese in town. It offers whiskey pairing dinners to members of the de Vere’s Whiskey Society, and in addition to hosting the city’s biggest St. Patrick’s day celebration, de Vere’s hosts Sacramento’s annual St. Baldrick’s shaving day to raise money for childhood cancer research."

This is a classic Irish dish and one of our most popular items.  Shepherd's pie can be made with beef or with Lamb, however beef or "Minced Meat" is used in most households due to its availability and price point.  We use our owners family recipe and the fried egg is a touch of theirs as well.  It really brings the dish together and is a must try!

Europa League review - Thurs 30th Sept

Europa League review - Thurs 30th Sept

"A review of the action involving Barclays Premier League teams in the Europa League on Thursday.
Liverpool and Manchester City both drew in the latest round of Europa League matches. The Anfield aces were held 0-0 by Utrecht in Holland and then City came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at home to Italian giants Juventus.

Adam Johnson snatched a point, bringing his side level in the 37th minute when he took advantage of a glorious through-ball from Yaya Youre. The winger showed good vision to race in from the right and sweep the ball home from inside the area. It was just the boost City needed after falling behind to a goal from Vincenzo Iaquinta in the 11th minute. With Jerome Boateng backing off, Iaquinta cut inside from the left before unleashing a shot that went beyond Joe Hart and into the corner of the net. Veteran striker Alessandro Del Piero hit the underside of the bar with a late free-kick with both sides good value for their point.

Liverpool held

Earlier, Liverpool picked up a hard-earned point with a goalless draw away to Utrecht. The Merseysiders had precious few opportunities although Fernando Torres did fire over with his left foot early in the second half when he might have hoped to hit the target. And the visitors should have taken the lead in the 57th minute when Dirk Kuyt crossed from the right to near post where Torres, eight yards out, saw his first-time shot tipped around the post by Michel Vorm. Raul Meireles came to his side's rescue, clearing off the line from Michael Silverbauer's header after Pepe Reina had failed to claim a corner from Dries Mertens. Without the rested Steven Gerrard, Liverpool lacked a spark. It was a solid but sometimes laboured display by Roy Hodgson's side who will still be pleased to come away with a clean sheet and a valuable point. A draw in the Stadion Galgenwaard, where the hosts had won their previous six matches, was no disgrace but it was hardly one of those classic, gritty away performances in Europe. Roy Hodgson's side, who had five successive Europa League victories prior to this match, were dominated for long periods and their clean sheet owed much to goalkeeper Jose Reina and that goalline clearance from Meireles."

My family and I are so excited for Sacramento's annual St. Patrick's Day block party, and we hope that every year we can create a betterexperience for everyone.

After a year of reflection and many debates, we have decided to add a charitable aspect to our block party. We felt that we had a wonderful opportunity to bring Sacramentans together for St. Patrick's Day, and that we could do so while giving back to the community that has been so supportive of us.

This year we have two charity events that take place during our block party on March 17. The 20/30 Club will be raising money for the UC Davis Medical Center Children's Cancer Center, and local firefighters will be cooking the event's food to raise money for the Burn Institute.

We also have an amazing charity event that takes place March 15 at de Vere's. This year we have the privilege to host alongside the Keaton Raphael Memorial the annual St. Baldrick's Day event.

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. At St. Baldrick's events all throughout the year, brave volunteers shave their heads, raising funds for research. Like runners in a marathon, "shavees" collect donations from family, friends and associates. The foundation receives these funds and makes grants to research experts to find new and better treatments for fighting kids' cancers.

Keaton Raphael Memorial is the host and event organizers for both the Roseville and Sacramento events.

“Shaving my head in 2003 in honor of my son Keaton remains one of the highlights of my life," said Robyn Raphael, founder of The Keaton Raphael Memorial. "I gave only hair. Keaton gave his life!”

KRM is a local childhood cancer organization established in 1998 that raises funds to assist local childhood cancer families and childhood cancer research.

Since 2003, KRM has shaved thousands of heads. This year will mark the eighth Annual St. Baldrick’s Celebrations KRM has hosted. The Keaton Raphael Memorial hosts some of the largest St. Baldrick’s celebrations in the nation. In 2009, 565 heads were shaved - 35 of which were women - and a total of $125,887 was raised.

We hope that we can gain the support of the community for this event that will now take place at our pub annually. This great cause will be a wonderful way to start off our St. Patrick's Day celebrations every year.

St. Baldrick's Day originated on the east coast in pubs as a way to raise money for childhood cancer research and now has participants all over the country. We are proud to be able to host this event and keep the tradition of St. Baldrick's alive. One hundred percent of the money raised during this event is donated to research and ultimately contributes to saving lives.

Donations can come in a few forms, from shaving one's hair to monetary support or even volunteering your services to help at local St. Baldrick's events. If you are interested in learning more or participating in any way, please check out the site here. For the record, I'm shaving what hair I have! There are a few other Sacramentans getting involved in the before-and-after fund raiser, and I salute them for it.

Please support our Northern California families by shaving your head and raising money to help find a cure.

St. Baldrick's Teams Include Michael Ault and Steve Hammond

Every 3 and a half minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer. Despite some advances in research, childhood cancer still remains the # 1 disease killer of our children in the U.S.

Thanks to the efforts of quite a few good people in Sacramento, we at de Vere's Irish Pub will be hosting over 100 shavees on Monday, March 15th. People from every walk of life will be shaving for a cure and raising money for childhood cancer research. We are proud to be hosting this event and are so excited at all the community members who stepped up to get involved. On behalf of our family, the Keaton Raphael Memorial, and St. Baldrick's, we can't thank you enough for getting involved.

Exciting News: Michael Ault, Executive Director of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership and Steve Hammond, the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau President and CEO have committed to shaving this year. And trust me, they have nice heads of hair!
