State agency cuts red tape to get Folsom Tap House taps flowing


FOLSOM, CA - The owners of a new restaurant called the Folsom Tap House have been forced to pour nothing stronger than soda because of a fatal crash that happened months before they opened their doors.

"It's really difficult to run a tap house without any taps," said Gail Back, who opened the restaurant with her husband, Jeff, at the beginning of April.

The Backs paid $20,000 to buy the liquor license and settle a tax lien from the bankrupt owner of a failed sports bar that occupied the space until last year.

The couple said a representative of the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control assured them in February the transfer would go smoothly.

"ABC said about seven to 10 business days we'll get that license issued and you should have no problem," Jeff Back said.

Bayside Church of Granite Bay holding Easter Sunday services at mall

Bayside Church of Granite Bay holding Easter Sunday services at mall

This year Bayside Church of Granite Bay is holding Easter Sunday services at the Galleria Mall in Roseville, instead of at the church.

Nearly 10,000 people are expected to attend Easter services at an outdoor stadium normally set up for tennis matches in the Nordstrom parking lot. Bayside will host two services (9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.) on Sunday April 20 and feature nationally known artist David Garibaldi, author and speaker Francis Chan and music led by recording artist and Bayside Worship leader Lincoln Brewster.

During the services, attendees will be able to sign-up for Bayside’s second ever “Serve Day,” a program designed to serve those in our community by painting, cleaning, building and generally helping thousands in need within across the greater Sacramento region. Last time, Bayside shut its doors so nearly 10,000 volunteers could serve at more than 120 projects. Serve Day 2014 will be held May 24 and 25.
