    EXAMINING YOUR BUDGET... come the second or third day of January? Well, it's probably going to happen, and, no, we wouldn't dare assume that this necessary task needs to happen on New Year's Day.

Prix fixe meals will be a popular choice at many places, if you're looking for a semi-set line-up of two- to four-courses, though how a restaurant approaches its day or week or month of savings is, of course, up to the venue. A few highlights? Dine Downtown Sacramento will roll from Jan. 12-21, 2018, while Napa Valley Restaurant Week will land from Jan. 21 through the 28th. Sonoma Valley Delicious! brews 'n stews throughout the whole month, while Newport Beach Restaurant Week fills out most of the second half of the months (Jan. 15 through 28).
