Foodie Find: The Gold Digger Bar

06/28/2018 05:06PM

Since opening on Main Street in early 2017, Gold Digger has been serving up a lively sports bar scene—thanks to four big-screen TVs, an HD projector, and plush leather seating. Wanting to provide a place with a “bit of big city feel and just the right amount of charming mountain flair,” the owners have succeeded with a sizable selection of craft beers on tap, local wines, cocktails, and small plates that are perfect for sharing amongst friends. While out on the town for the city's Girl’s Night Out event, a gal pal and I did just that while sipping frosty beers and munching on their Loaded Nachos. The early evening snack included a heaping helping of crispy tortilla chips piled high with juicy pulled chicken, a smothering of cheese, fresh tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, and a dollop of sour cream. For only $10, my friend and I were more than satisfied and satiated. While you’ll have a front-row seat to numerous sporting events of your choosing, the establishment provides even more entertainment options, too, like live music; game, trivia, and open mic nights; happy hour; salsa dancing; and a “Sunday Funday” with brunch specials and bottomless mimosas to kick off the workweek. What’s more, you don’t have to leave the kiddos at home: They have a special “kids’ corner” that’ll keep young ones entertained for hours. Cheers to that! 372 Main Street, Placerville, 530-748-3202,
