editor’s note

Two years ago, I purchased a 32-page, locally printed “brewery passport”

and it hasn’t left my purse since. Started by Sacramento Beer Frontier, it

allows holders to collect custom stamps at each of our region’s 65 (and

counting) breweries, in addition to fun swag like a pint glass, bottle

opener, and—when your journey’s complete—a tailor-made map of your

sip excursion.

As a (selfproclaimed)

craft beer buff,

it’s not only forced my husband and me

to explore more breweries and styles of

suds being crafted here but taken us to

towns we’d typically zoom right past.

When weekends allow, we’ll tie in a

tasting with another fun activity—from

a hike in Auburn followed by stamps

at Crooked Lane, Moonraker, and Knee

Deep; to kayaking on Lake Natoma

with post-paddle pints at Fort Rock and

Claimstake. And though we’re getting

close to completing our adventure, it

seems like new establishments are

opening every weekend.

Whether you, like me, have an affinity

for ales or you go gaga for grapes, let this

issue be a cheerful reminder of how

amazing our area is for all the above.

Starting on page 47, contributor Luna Anona presents “Your Guide to the Region’s Best Beer and

Wine,” featuring a roundup of new (and soon-to-open) tasting rooms along with some of the

original places that first put us on the map, trends to take note of, labels we love, fun facts you

probably don’t know, and much more. It’s proof that you don’t need to go to Napa for a weekend

of wine tasting or down to San Diego to sample award-winning IPAs. Everything you’re thirsty for,

minus the stuffy surrounds, is just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

“Beer, if drunk

in moderation,

softens the

temper, cheers

the spirit, and

promotes

health.”

—Thomas

Jefferson

Alcohol aside, this month also marks the start of back to

school. To that end, we have 10 safety tips for keeping kiddos safe

(page 20), courtesy of Amitis Pourarian, owner of THE STUDIO

Martial Arts and Fitness, and a special addition to our Swag

section highlighting must-have products to survive the school

year in style (page 44). And for those extra busy evenings you’re

too tuckered out to cook a family-friendly meal? Fret not. Flip to

page 70 for our favorite kids’ menus, featuring dishes so delectable

you might be asking your server if adults can order it too.

As always, we packed many more buzzworthy articles in

the pages that follow, so pour yourself something to sip on and

remember to read responsibly. Cheers!

What’s the last

interesting book

you read?

“Does the Noise in My Head Bother

You?: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Memoir

by Steven Tyler. I’ve always

been fascinated with the

emotional ups and downs of

rock stars and entertainment

professionals and love hearing

it from the source—raw and

unfiltered.”

—Gary Zsigo

“Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson.

Sanderson, in my humble opinion,

is one of the best fantasy novel

writers since Tolkien, and I

would highly recommend his

books to anyone looking for

fantastical worlds crafted to

perfection and brought to life

with dynamic and interesting

characters.”—Raymond Burgess

“Killers of the Flower Moon: The

Osage Murders and the Birth

of the FBI by David Grann. It

reads like a novel but is the

true story of a not-so-shining

moment of America’s past

that most people don’t know

about.”—Debra Linn

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for

Peculiar Children. The author

of the series, Ransom Riggs,

goes to flea markets, collects

old photographs of random

people, and then makes

a story out of them. How

creative is that?!”

—Annie Biederman

“I just read Put Your Game

Together: Ethical Management

in Youth Sports and Business

by my close friend Donnie

Howell. It’s a great read for

parents of children playing

sports about how ethical

practices in business and life

correlate to youth sports.”

ask the experts

What are some secrets to baking

moist cupcakes?

One factor that contributes to a cupcake’s dryness is how much the

batter is mixed. If you mix it too long, the consistency changes and

will cause the finished product to become dry and dense. When

mixing the dry and wet ingredients, you want to mix the batter

until all the ingredients are just incorporated and no further, even

though it can be tempting. Also, a lot of people think cupcakes need

to be refrigerated, but that’s a myth, as it’ll cause the cake to dry

out and become dense.

Sammy Schnetz, Marketing Director // Icing on the Cupcake // 2379 Iron Point

Road, Suite 110, Folsom // 916-303-4333, icingonthecupcake.com

How often should you get

microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion can be beneficial every one to six months,

depending on your skin’s needs, but most patients would benefit

from two to four treatments a year. Those with acne, oily skin, scars,

Top photo ©wealthy_b - stock.adobe.com. Bottom photo ©BillionPhotos.com - stock.adobe.com.

or dull, thickened surface layers of skin would benefit from more

frequent (monthly) microdermabrasion. Medical aestheticians—

those who work with a doctor practicing in one of the aesthetics

categories—can also add a peel to the process to improve the

impact. The combination of microdermabrasion and a gentle

peel allows a much greater change in skin and more effective

penetration of topical products. Lastly, microdermabrasion should

be combined with daily exfoliation at home.

CHEERS TO BEERS

Though the Sacramento region has a bevy

from Around the World”—including a

single fermented Belgian golden ale from

Duvel in Puurs, Belgium, and an arctic pale

ale from Einstök Beer in Akureyri, Iceland.

Q &A

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR

YOUNGER SELF?

Believe in yourself.

WHAT COMES TO YOU NATURALLY?

I can talk to just about anyone.

Shadrack

Biwott

WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST PET PEEVE?

Being late.

BIGGEST LIFE INSPIRATIONS?

My children. I want to show them that

if you believe in yourself, the sky’s the

limit. Also, my wife—she’s my backbone

and a constant support.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?

Other than my family, finishing the 2018

Boston Marathon despite the weather.

BEST WORDS OF WISDOM YOU’VE

RECEIVED?

Hard work supersedes talent.

For Folsom resident Shadrack

Biwott, third-place finisher at

this year’s Boston Marathon,

it all started with a pair of

sneakers. Born in a small

Kenyan village, for the first 14 years of his life,

he didn’t own shoes. But his older brothers

were competitive runners, and Biwott

quickly realized that running could be a way

to gain access to an education, something he

wanted more than anything else. For that

to happen, however, he’d need shoes. “My

brothers said, ‘If we give you shoes, you have

to promise you’ll run with them,’” Biwott

recalls. And he did, despite quickly learning

that long-distance running was far from

easy. For his first run, his brothers took him

on a 10-mile gauntlet around the village. “It

was torture,” he says with a laugh. “I ended

up crying the whole way home.”

But Biwott never gave up. After legally

immigrating to the U.S., he earned an

athletic scholarship to the University of

Oregon. Post-graduation, he went pro and

currently runs in a variety of half and full

marathons each year. He continues to train

hard and has his sights set on making the

Olympic team one day. What’s more, Biwott

volunteers his time to share his story at

schools throughout the region. “I tell kids

that they have to work hard and never give

up,” he shares. “The secret is to do your best,

every day.”

cuff tears in both shoulders, I was

referred to Dr. Brandon Beamer

for treatment. Through the use of

platelet rich plasma injection—using

my own blood platelets—I healed

quickly and naturally. I was back to

light workouts in two weeks.

– SARA MCMANN

Professional mixed martial artist and wrestling

silver medalist, 2004 Olympics

Whether you’re an athlete with an injury or if

you suffer from chronic pain, use your own

body’s mechanisms to heal itself. Platelet Rich

Plasma (PRP) injections can help with joint

pain, muscle, tendon or ligament injuries.

CATCH ALL

Lean Up

Photos courtesy of its respective company or organization.

Let’s face it—exercising and eating right can be hard,

but if you’re looking for motivation, the opportunity to

adopt a healthier lifestyle is here. Lean Up, a community

outreach program put on by Spare Time Clubs, chooses

over 200 local applicants to receive an eight-week wellness

program for free. “It’s a combination of fitness and wellness

training and guidance in state-of-the art facilities with

an abundance of professional coaching,” explains Gavin

Russo, director of sales and marketing for Spare Time

Clubs. Applicants are asked a series of questions designed

to determine their current health levels and reasons for

why previous attempts at a healthier lifestyle didn’t work.

Those chosen are expected to commit at least six hours per

week by attending boot camp and Motivate, Educate, Eat

(MEE) meetings—both of which take place in a supportive,

positive environment. “Many [past participants] have lost

significant amounts of weight. Others have been able

to eliminate or reduce diabetes or high blood pressure

medications. And still others are able to climb stairs or

play with their kids or grandkids for the first time in many

years. Each person has their own compelling reasons for

wanting to join the Lean Up program,” says Russo. Previous

participant Jacqueline states that “Lean Up is not only

about working out, but it’s a program that encourages you

to take control of your life. The instructors’ enthusiasm

is contagious and their passion for all of us to succeed is

powerful.” Applications are accepted through August 31

with the program beginning September 10. —Emily Peter

Back-to-School Safety Tips

As school gets underway again, it’s a prime time for parents to go over some safety protocol with their little ones.

Follow these quick-and-easy tips to help kiddos stay safe.

The 10 Spot

by AMITIS POURARIAN

1

Don’t put your child's name

on clothing, backpacks, lunch

boxes, etc. where it's easily

visible to others. Instead, put their

name on the inside, so the article can be

identified but a stranger can’t approach

your child and use their name as a way to

create familiarity.

2

Have a password between you

and your child that no one

knows. In the event someone

other than yourself needs to pick them

up, the person must say that password;

otherwise, your child should not go.

3

If your child walks home and

has a cell phone, advise them

not to be engulfed in it. They

should be paying attention to their

surroundings and cars approaching

them.

4

Whether your kiddo walks to

school or plays at a

playground, predators often

attempt to lure their prey. Make sure

your child knows they shouldn’t talk

with, or even help, a stranger. If

someone they don’t know asks for help,

teach them not to approach and instead

get an adult to help them.

5

Teach your kids the

difference between a secret

and a surprise. Make sure they

know to tell you if someone tells them a

secret.

6

Encourage your child to

communicate with you

regularly, so in the event of an

incident involving something like a

stranger approaching them, they know

to tell you.

7

name.

8

Confirm your child knows a

parent's cell phone number

(including area code) and full

Predators typically prefer their

prey to be compliant, so teach

your child to kick, punch, and

scream in the event they’re grabbed.

9

If your child rides their bike to

school, teach them to latch

onto it if someone attempts to abduct

them; it’ll make it that much harder for

the offender to take them.

10

If your child is approached by a

car while they’re walking, teach

them to walk away from the car

(opposite direction the car is traveling).

Amitis Pourarian is a seventh-degree

black belt and owner of THE STUDIO

Martial Arts and Fitness in Roseville. For

Marco Ippaso

Driven to Create

by HEATHER L. BECKER

In addition to creating original paintings

in loose photo realistic style, artist Marco

Ippaso also runs a design and marketing

consultancy, produces commissioned

art, and illustrates children’s books. A

true petrolhead at heart, he adores all

things automotive, as evidenced by the

classic and vintage race cars that he commonly

paints. What’s more, Ippaso often donates his art to

local causes, including Gracias Jesus, which helps

needy families in Nicaragua and Sacramento, and

Wellness Oasis, which helps abused women. “Art

and design is not a hobby or an interest—it’s more

of a way of life,” says Ippaso. “I love to paint but

really it’s the art of self-expression, creation, and

problem-solving.” Although his works are featured

worldwide, you can view them locally at Zia’s, Blue

Line Arts, and Gold Country Artists’ Gallery.

HLB: HOW DID BEING BORN IN ITALY AND LIVING ABROAD SHAPE YOUR WORK?

MI: I love Italy and have always felt Italian in my heart; though, in essence, having been raised in England,

I’m as British as Earl Grey tea! This made for some momentous moments while watching international

football games and profusely cheering every time Italy put one past the post amidst a nation of unhappy

English groans. Italy gives me passion, my love of cars, appreciation for art and design, and a can-do

attitude—all mixed with inimitable Italian style. England unquestionably provided me with perseverance,

wit, a sense of getting on with things, and doing things properly without fuss. I love British graphic design

and ingenuity.

HLB: DESCRIBE YOUR ARTISTIC STYLE.

MI: I paint predominantly using a layered pastel style with gouache and a little pencil detailing. The pastel

is powdered and mixed with baby powder; each layer uses different colors and has a coating of workable

fixative, which makes it partially transparent, providing depth and vibrancy. It’s a technique I was taught

at the ArtCenter College of Design and is used by automotive and product designers. I’ve always loved the

process, the messiness, and fantastic luminosity of it all.

HLB: HOW ARE ART ASSOCIATIONS BENEFICIAL TO BOTH ARTISTS AND THE COMMUNITY?

MI: Each organization promotes art throughout the community, which is something we all benefit from.

The importance of art and design in our society seems, to me, to be grossly underappreciated, especially

in Anglo-Saxon cultures.

HLB: WHERE DO YOU GO WHEN YOU NEED INSPIRATION?

MI: I love traveling and miss Europe so often go back, but wherever I am, inspiration is all around. I’m a

great observer of the unnoticed or taken for granted—the colors of a shadow, the way light is diffused on

a foggy day, the way the ocean meets the sand. I love it when our human footprint combines with natural

beauty to create something greater and even more beautiful than the original. Human ingenuity always

impresses me. artbyippaso.com

Hello Glow

16 Holistic

Beauty Tips

by KOURTNEY JASON

What exactly is holistic beauty? Depending who you ask, the definition

differs. According to Melissa Rascon, owner of NorCal Natural

Beauty Salon and Organic Spray Tanning in Folsom, [it's] the science

of life and a “practical system based on the belief that optimal health

is achieved when your mind, body, and spirit are aligned with the

universe.” For Penny Chabot, owner of Scarlet Halo Holistics in Placerville, holistic beauty

is about taking care of your physical body outwardly while also going within to tend to

your non-physical being. “You know when you see someone beaming [with life] and they

just emit a certain beauty you can actually feel? That’s the type of beauty that catches

my attention,” she says. “Though everyone’s body is different and needs different things

to flourish, there are certain ways to boost your beauty in a healthy, vibrant way.” Here,

three local experts share their top tips.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

“So often we forget that our skin is

1

literally the largest organ in our body.

It’s a beautiful, intricate system that has a

million jobs, including filtering out toxins.

Whatever is happening internally will

show externally. Adding healthy fats, like

avocado and almonds, will help deliver

vitamin E and give you that healthy glow,”

says Haley Judge, a licensed esthetician,

owner of Rosewater Holistic Skin Studio

in Placerville, and creator of Rosarium

Organic Skin Care.

2

“Probiotic supplements and foods,

like fermented veggies and yogurt, are

needed to add healthy bacteria in your gut,

[which] is crucial to having gorgeous skin,

hair, and nails,” Judge says.

3

According to Chabot, “Vitamin C is the

best overall anti-aging ingredient. Put

in on topically, ingest it through nutrition, or

even take a supplement! Just get it in and on

your body.”

4

“Water, water, water! Almost everyone is

chronically dehydrated. Drinking eight

glasses of water [every day] will give you a

beautiful complexion and make a myriad of

issues vanish,” Judge shares.

5

“[Cut back on] sugar. Refined sugar

inflames the skin and is a leading cause

of wrinkles and acne. Simply removing it

from your diet will lead to vibrant skin,” Judge

says.

6

“Herbal tea is a ‘super drink,’ due to

its ability to flush toxins out. White tip

oolong and jasmine tea make the skin glow

from within, visibly reducing unevenness

and dullness,” Rascon says.

SMART SKIN CARE

“If there’s no flow, there’s no glow. Science

7

is finally recognizing the important role

the lymphatic system plays in our wellness

and beauty. Incorporating simple massage

techniques and tools into your daily routine

and monthly facials is a game changer.

[Both help] promote circulation, flush out

toxins, and lift and tone the skin. With that,

don’t be afraid to massage your face! Using

tools like a jade roller, gua sha board, and dry

brushing are other ways to help support this

important system,” Judge says.

“Turmeric reduces inflammation and a little

bit goes a long way. [To incorporate it into

your routine], wash your face and hands to remove

impurities and any makeup; then, in a small bowl or

jar, mix 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon

organic apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon organic raw

local honey, 1/2 teaspoon milk or yogurt, and 1 drop

lemon essential oil or fresh lemon juice. Try to get a consistency that will stick to your face; be

careful not to make it too thin as it may drip. Apply the mask (avoiding your eyes), let it sit for

15–20 minutes, and rinse with warm water. Apply twice a week for best results,” Rascon says.

10

9

Judge says to, “Stop over-exfoliating!

It’s been a trend in recent years to

exfoliate with scrubs, acids, and peels on a

daily basis, but doing this compromises the

skin, leading to issues such as premature

aging. I suggest letting your esthetician do

a gentle exfoliation monthly and using a

washcloth for daily use.”

“Switch to an organic oil cleanser. Using

soaps, fragrances, and chemicals on the

skin strips your healthy bacteria, creating an

imbalance that’s visible. Oil cleansing is an

ancient practice that’s making a comeback.

Even for those who are prone to acne or have

oily skin, it brings balance back to eradicate

these problems. But not all oils are created

equal! Jojoba oil is the most like our own

skin’s sebum and penetrates the deepest

without leaving a greasy sheen,” Judge says.

11

“Honey is naturally antibacterial,

making it perfect for breakouts; full of

antioxidants to help slow down signs of

aging; and incredibly moisturizing. Apply it as

a spot treatment to breakouts or dry patches,

or use it as a whole face mask (apply a thin

layer in small circles to damp skin, let it soak

for 20-30 minutes, and rinse),” Judge advises.

12

According to Rascon, “It takes eight

seconds for a beauty product to get

into the bloodstream, so check labels. The app

Think Dirty is user-friendly and helpful when

you’re not sure of a product’s toxicity level;

just scan the bar code on the app to learn

about potential toxic ingredients.”

FIND PEACE OF MIND

13

“Have a morning ritual. Immediately

after waking up and before taking a

shower, drink lemon water to lower blood

pressure and balance pH. I also suggest

beginning your morning with a mantra:

‘Today I will choose happiness,’ or ‘I am

thankful for everything I have,’” Rascon

shares.

14

“Address your stress! See where it's

coming from and make an effort to

find a less stressful way of life. Getting enough

sleep and exercise helps. Additionally, find

time for reflection through yoga, meditation,

journaling, and with nature,” Chabot says.

15

“Take care of your emotional and

mental health. When we can find

ways to process and release toxic emotions

and thoughts, it allows our energy system

to flow in a way that brings us vitality and

immunity in a more radiant way,” Chabot

recommends.

16

Judge says, “Don’t be so hard on

yourself. We all have things we would

like to fix, but if you only focus on the

negatives, the stress will literally cause more

issues. Simplify your skin care routine and

give yourself a compliment the next time you

look in the mirror—you deserve it!”

Invest LOV

Students Who Serve

by LINDA HOLDERNESS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

When Vista del Lago teacher

Janice Johnson chose Invest

LOV as the name for her new

nonprofit, she wasn’t looking for a cutesy

spelling. LOV is an acronym for “Lessons

of Vera” to honor Johnson’s mother,

Vera Earlene DeWitt, who was devoted

to helping others. DeWitt passed away in

February, but her spirit of volunteerism

endures through Invest LOV, which

Johnson spun off from a leadership

class she started at Vista last fall to

help teens learn to get involved in their

communities. “This generation is going to

be pretty awesome,” Johnson says of her

students. “They don’t understand it yet,

but they’re going to do a lot.” The 30 kids

in her class last year already have a head

start with two successful community

projects under their belts.

Johnson’s curriculum followed a realworld

process. She divided the students

into six teams and charged each with

finding a need in the community and

developing a project to address it. The

teams were responsible for planning,

budgeting, setting up a timeline, and

proposing their ideas to a panel of judges,

Shark Tank-style. One project would be

awarded a $5,000 grant—donated the first

year by Johnson—to turn the idea into

reality. For the first two weeks, Johnson

says, the kids thought the money was

hypothetical. “When they found out it

was real, they freaked out.”

Key to the students’ success was


These kids learned

it doesn’t take a

million dollars to

make a difference.


38 stylefedh.com // AUGUST 2018 // /stylefedh /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemagfedh


mentoring by city leaders, who spoke to the class about needed

community services and where they could be enhanced. Some of

these leaders acted as judges for the students’ pitches. This year’s

winner, revealed at a formal ceremony, was “Nice Tice,” led by

junior Lauren Tice, who came up with the idea to refurbish outof-use

parking meters and install them in local agencies to collect

coin donations. The team bought the meters on eBay, designed

them, wrote text, and hired someone to do the restoration work.

Now, nine meters are destined for three nonprofits: Powerhouse

Ministries, Folsom’s Hope, and 3Strands Global. “This class inspired

me so much,” Tice says. “I didn’t feel like we could actually make a

difference in the community, but it opened a lot of doors for other

ideas on how I can help.”

This year also had a bonus winner: A donor funded another

team’s project to update the “ragtag, pieced-together” interior of

Powerhouse Ministries with bright, functional new IKEA furniture

the kids built. Once the grants were announced, the whole class

worked on the winning projects.

Johnson cut her teaching schedule to part-time this coming

school year to raise money for Invest LOV, which will fund

future projects, and to promote the program to other schools.

She would like to see more teams of kids be able to fund

projects, either by raising additional money or by apportioning

smaller amounts where possible. “These kids learned it doesn’t

take a million dollars to make a difference,” Johnson says. “It

would be wonderful if every school had this.” investlov.org

TOP BUYING

TIPS

by KERRIE L. KELLY, FASID

When it comes to couches, trendy silhouettes come and go. If you stick

with the classics, however, you’ll have a timeless piece of furniture that lasts a

lifetime. Consider these five fan favorites and top designer tips when shopping

for your next sofa.

ENGLISH ROLL ARM

This inviting sofa is also referred to as a bridgewater. With soft arms and cushions, its tilted

back angle is embracing. Since it requires arm support for those seated to get up and out,

you’ll want to look for arms that are built into the frame versus being tacked on the outside

of it.

Sit on the arm, in the seat,

1

and lift up the cushions.

If you hear a creak or

notice considerable movement,

the frame is inferior.

Request eight-way

2

hand-tied or benchmade

frames. Kiln-dried

hardwood frames have been

stabilized and won’t warp over

time, so you can reupholster

with confidence or resell your

quality piece.

Inquire about your

3

cushions. We recommend

high-density foam

wrapped in a down and feather

blend so that cushions return

to their original shape but are

comfortable.

Most sofas come in a few

4

standard lengths. If

you’re looking for a

catnap and conversation, an

eight-foot version is ideal.

Should you be considering

a sofa shorter than six

5

feet, you may want to go

for two club chairs and an

ottoman instead.

Use painters’ tape to stake

6

out the location of your

new sofa. Measure door

frames, walkways, and other

clearances to be sure you can

move the sofa into the space.

7

If you have narrow doors

or stairs, look for models

with removable legs.

Chesterfield

This sofa style is formal yet remarkably comfortable. Typically

found in heavier materials such as linen, velvet, or leather, the

chesterfield dons rolled arms (more modern versions tout straight

arm styles) that are the same height as the back. Often tufted, it

features a tight back and seats, so you’ll want to add a soft pillow

or two for those afternoon naps.

MID-CENTURY MODERN

This sofa style reminds us of Mad Men. Its high back and low

profile with squared arms and clean lines provides great back

support. Be sure to test this one out in person; although cushions

are typically overstuffed, the seat height often comes in too low

for client comfort.

TUXEDO

Stylish and sometimes slightly feminine, the tuxedo sofa is great

for small spaces. Boxy yet tailored, the back and arms are always

the same height and the cushions are typically firm. Be sure

yours doesn’t feature arms that are too high, as it’s often difficult

to find side tables that complement it.

CAMELBACK

This style is also referred to as a chippendale. With upright and

elegant features, thanks to curves and high arms, its back causes

those seated to sit up straight. You’ll want to pay close attention

to this particular sofa’s proportions, however—when the seat is

deep, the back can often seem too high.

Best Beer and Wine

California knows how to party, and it’s probably because we

have the best booze in the country. From the hazy IPA craze

to rows of 50-year-old vines, here’s everything you need to

know about what—and where—you should be drinking.

9 Trends to Take Note Of

Get excited for

effervescence.

Styles of wines are constantly

changing, as well as the way

consumers perceive the different

types of varietals. For example,

when the movie Sideways was

released, consumers viewed

Merlot and Pinot Noir

completely differently than

they did before, and the wine

industry saw major changes

in the production of both of

those varietals. As far as the

newest trend, I’m noticing that

there are more sparkling wines

being produced, which was

previously few and far between.

me really excited!” —Ashlee

Unique, warmweather

varietals are

about to heat up.

“Mediterranean varietals that

do well in warmer regions, such

as Tempranillo, Monastrell,

Verdejo, Albariño, Alvarinho,

Touriga Nacional, and Syrah

are making a big splash in the

region. Additionally, there are

some great Italian varietals

becoming popular, such as

Barbera, Sangiovese, and

the lesser-known Charbono.

Likewise, French varietals

that aren’t as well-known as

their Bordeaux cousins—such

as Malbec, Cabernet Franc,

Mourvèdre, and Grenache—are

also present here in the Sierra

Foothill region.”—Teena and

“For more than a decade, the

style of choice in California

has been, and continues to be,

IPAs. We saw growth of New

England-style (hazy) IPAs, but

there are two other beers I

see garnering attention: brut

IPAs and India pale lagers—

beers you can load with hop

flavors but deliver on a lighter,

low-bodied base that makes

them easier to drink.” —Paul

Brut IPAs are about

to make a sudsy

splash.

“Sour beers and hazy IPAs

have been popular for a while

now, but in the last few months,

something new has arisen: brut

IPAs. They’re brewed similar

to a traditional imperial IPA,

but an enzyme is used to dry

out the beer more than usual,

hence the name brut—it’s

like a very dry sparkling wine.

They have a big aroma like a

traditional IPA [with] a lighter

mouthfeel and a nice, dry,

easy finish. They’re incredibly

easy to drink and are bound

to bring non-IPA drinkers into

the loop.” —Lauren Zehnder,

General Manager, Mraz

Brewing Company, 2222

Dorado Hills, 916-934-0744,

We’re going to

rosé all day

again this year.

“With warmer temperatures

upon us, rosé is hot! Pink wine

used to have a stigma after years

of sweet white Zinfandel, but

classic rosé—in a crisp, dry, and

refreshing style—is on everyone’s

minds and lips right now.”—Jody

Bogle, Owner and Director of Public

Relations, Bogle Vineyards, 37783 County Road

144, Clarksburg, 916-744-1092, boglewinery.com

We’re going to try

6 to drink more

beer but get

less drunk.

“There seems to be a push

toward more session-style beers

(4.5 percent ABV and under), like

pilsner and other light lagers, which

is exciting.”—Erik Schmid, Owner

and General Manager, Red Bus

We’re also going to try to

drink more wine but get

less drunk.

“Winemakers are going back to producing

balanced wines that aren’t too fruity, too

oaky, or too alcoholic—the alcohol bomb

is out and producing approachable wines

is in.”—Jill Osur, President/Owner,

Less (sulfites) is more.

“More winemakers [are producing bottles

with] lower levels of sulfites (the chemical

compound many people ‘think’ they’re

allergic to). For small producers whose

fruit quality is excellent, there’s rarely a

need to overdo the sulfur dioxide.” —

Natural and sustainable

practices are in—and

Merlot is cool again.

“One trend we’re really happy about is a

return to ‘natural’ wines. We have always

made our wines in this style—minimal

outside intervention, unfiltered, unfined,

and using sustainable practices. We also

anticipate a comeback for Merlot in the

near future.” —Emily Hays, Owner,

530-622-8094, boegerwinery.

com

The first post-Prohibition winery

in the El Dorado American

Viticultural Area (AVA), this local

staple pioneered a lengthy list

of underdog varietals—including

Barbera, which has helped the

winery scoop up hundreds of

awards over the years. Today, the

bustling spot hosts first Sunday

bluegrass jams, yoga, and petfriendly

vineyard excursions.

com

SIERRA VISTA WINERY

4560 Cabernet Way, Placerville,

530-622-7221, sierravistawinery.

Early adopters of the rebirth of

mountain viticulture, owners

John and Barbara MacCready

bought land in 1972, planted some

grapevines, and never looked

back. A study revealed that the

climate closely mirrors France’s

northern Rhone Valley, which was

the determining factor in deciding

how to plant across the 28 acres

of mountain vineyards. All of the

wines, with the exception of the

Sauvignon Blanc, are estate grown.

3

MADROÑA VINEYARDS

2560 High Hill Road,

Camino, 530-644-5948,

madronavineyards.com

These estate wines exhibit the

best characteristics of Rhone and

Bordeaux varietals, thanks to

the ideal 3,000-foot mountain

elevation. Evolution and calculated

refining result in big beauties like

the 2017 Dry Riesling, a bright and

lush whirlpool of peaches and

apples, and the spicy and earthy

2015 Malbec. Complimentary

tastings of rotating selections take

place daily.

LAVA CAP WINERY

2221 Fruitridge Road, Placerville,

530-621-0175, lavacap.com

Named for the lingering volcanic

soil of million-year-old eruptions,

this winery has been dedicated to

producing estate-grown wines since 1986. Pack a picnic, pop in the tasting

room, and take your favorite bottle to the stunning gardens that overlook

the vineyards. Insider tip: Try the 2014 Syrah, bursting with deep blackberry

and blueberry notes and a gentle finish. The vineyard’s southwest-facing

slope grants the grapes a longer hang-time, yielding more depth and

intensity in the glass.

SCOTT HARVEY WINES

10861 Shenandoah Road, Plymouth, 209-245-3670, scottharveywines.com

Often credited with putting Amador County on the wine map, Scott

Harvey helped develop the crowd favorite Ménage à Trois wines. Following

his success, Scott decided to go out on his own, with the help of his wife,

wine industry pro Jana. If it’s your first foray into Scott Harvey, we suggest

treating yourself with the vineyard’s Zinfandel—it basically garners an award

every time the winery releases a new bottle.

winery also produces a variety of other

red, white, and sweet wines—including a

deliciously indulgent Syrah Port.

The second

incarnation of

a long-standing

Sacramento

tradition, River

City migrated

to Carmichael

in 2015 after

nearly two

decades of being

a downtown watering hole—the oldest

brewpub in town. If you can’t choose from

the 16 taps, try the award-winning flagship

amber lager, Vienna, or straw-colored Cap

City IPA. Meanwhile, the kitchen blends

locally sourced ingredients with classic pub

grub picks, like French dip sandwiches and

pulled pork sliders, plus a few inventive wild

cards (Reuben rolls, anyone?). With $5 pints

and apps during happy hour, River City is

exactly what a brewpub should be.

their comeback. Priding

themselves on using

locally grown hops to

make bona fide Sac brews

Made with hand-picked ingredients from their own orchards, vineyards, and hop fields, this

watering hole is pioneering a pasture-to-pint movement. More than just a brewery, Dueling

Dogs also serves up mead, cider, and something you probably can’t find at most spots: cyser,

which is a slightly sweet, super crisp fusion of the two. If you’re more of a traditionalist, fear

not: You’ll also find a pilsner, chocolate porter, mandarin wit, pale ale, and IPA on draft.

It’s like a cozy clubhouse (think red leather couches,

foosball tables, and tic-tac-toe) with an undeniably hip

factor (a bright red ’68 Volkswagen bus), and it’s also

the first brewery to tap into the Folsom beer scene

since the 1880s. A labor of love for veteran homebrewer

Erik Schmid, the tap house has offered traditional

brews like Type III, a pale ale, as well as more creative

efforts, like Dank Brut, a champagne-style IPA. One

notable thing about the clubhouse? There are no

secret passwords, or even secrets at all. The recipes and

production process are an open book—just ask.

7 FUN FACTS

1If not for the Gold Rush,

perhaps there wouldn’t

be California wine as we know

it today. European immigrants

with winemaking in their

blood came for the gold but

realized a shinier opportunity:

selling wine to homesick miners.

The first grapes in Placer County

were planted in 1848 by miner Claude Chana, a French

immigrant.

2The Sierra Foothills covers 2.6 million acres

and contains vines planted throughout eight

counties.

3The foothills housed more than 100 wineries

by the end of the 19th century, more than any

other region in California, but the decline of gold mining

and Prohibition put a cork in things until the late 1960s,

when a new generation of pioneers took over.

4The Bogle family was well-known in the ’50s

and ’60s for farming row

crops, predominantly corn. In

1968, Warren Bogle decided

to try something he wouldn’t

need to replant every year,

so he put in a few acres of

potatoes, all of which promptly

died. A consultant advised

Warren to plant wine grapes, so

he planted 10 acres of Petite Sirah and 10

acres of Chenin Blanc. It was good advice: 50 years

later, Bogle wines are sold in all 50 states and nearly

40 countries.

5Crooked Lane Brewing Company was originally

built in 1980 as a duplex movie theater, and

in the ’90s, it became a car dealership. Today, thirsty

patrons reminisce about how they had their first kiss in

the building—or bought their first car there!

6Beer was also a preferred libation during the

Gold Rush, of course, with Galena Brewery

opening in 1849, about 100 yards from Sutter’s Fort. The

first beers were brewed and sold for 25 cents a glass

(about $10 today).

7When Erik Schmid was creating Red Bus

Brewing Company, he bought its iconic red

bus—a ’68 Volkswagen—with the intention of using it to

shuttle customers from Sutter Street to the brewery and

back. The insurance company wasn’t too keen on the

liability, so now the bus is just the logo—and arguably

one of the best bar accessories in town.

Black Vette Winery

4984 Bell Road, Auburn, 916-444-5338,

blackvettewinery.com

Named after the owner’s 1966 black Chevy Corvette that she’s

owned and coveted since ’81, Black Vette Vineyards’ first harvest

happened in 2017 with bottling taking place just last month.

The second harvest, slated for this fall, will include Petit Verdot,

Sangiovese, Montelpulciano, and Primitivo. Eager beavers will have

to be patient though: The winery’s tasting room and bottles won’t

be available till 2019.

Mount Saint Joseph Wines

(Vin Uva Tasting Room)

8629 Auburn Folsom Road, Granite Bay,

916-784-9463, mountsaintjosephwines.com

The idea for Mount Saint Joseph Wines—whose tasting room, Vin Uva,

opened last month—originated in January 2015 during a conversation

between nationally recognized Napa winemaker Peter Story and

Father Matthew Spencer of Saint Joseph Marello Catholic Church

(hence the winery’s moniker). Their goal was simple: beautify the

property of the Oblates of Saint Joseph—an order of priests who have

had their novitiate and seminary on the 20-acre grounds in Loomis

for almost 70 years—with vineyards and provide lease income to

support the Oblates seminary and youth service missions. Three

years later and they have a well-established wine club, 1,800 cases of

red and white varietals and blends (with much more on the way), and

a popular presence at numerous local restaurants.

Farmhaus Brewery

This barn-turned-brewery offers a pastoral view to enjoy with

your pint. Seating for the lofty, wood-filled space overflows

outside, where you can sit by the pond or sprawl out at picnic

tables. Naturally, it’s a picturesque wedding venue and also

hosts offbeat events worth driving out of town for, like sushi

and beer pairings and comedy nights. A small but mighty

menu checks all the boxes: a fruity IPA (we recommend trying

it with the Dole Whip for a refreshing summer sipper), spicy

and citrusy saison, passionfruit sour, dessert-inspired stout,

and classic blonde ale.

6 Labels We Love

Mraz Brewing Company

If Mraz has a signature style, it would best be

described as “fun.” Just like its sudsy content,

the artwork on every can is vastly different,

ranging from sassy puns to gothic vibes and

nostalgic cartoons to revived memes.

Chateau Davell Boutique

Winery

3020 Vista Tierra Drive, Camino, 530-644-2016,

chateaudavell.com

Chateau Davell’s first wine was named Charlotte,

a tribute to co-owners Emily and Eric Hays’

daughter. To go along with the name, Eric

painted her portrait. The pair loved

the idea of each wine being named

for someone close to them so much

that they continued with the theme.

Lone Buffalo Vineyards

7505 Wise Road, Auburn 530-823-1159, lonebuffalovineyards.com

As a nod to Native American culture, each label at Lone Buffalo includes a

unique symbol—just like the Natives used in their own artwork to express

ideas and emotions—from a thunderbird (messenger of the Gods) on their

2015 Thunder Beast Zinfandel to buffalo horns (success) on their 2015

Tatonka Tempranillo.

3030 Carson Road, Placerville,

530-647-2113, rucksackcellars.

Think of Rucksack Cellars as the

spirit of the Sierra Foothills swirled

in a glass. Rucksack’s sister winery,

Madroña Vineyards, produces 100

percent estate wines (wine that

is made from start to finish at a

winery’s property, including grape

sourcing), but Rucksack has sought

out to shop at neighboring vineyards

to create complex fruit expressions

that only this region can produce.

Look for the Seco, a rich and berryforward

wine that pairs beautifully

with spicy foods, or the Barbera Rosé,

a vibrant raspberry summer sipper.

Lava Cap is a family-owned winery in Placerville, California. The Jones family

planted their first vines in 1981 and opened the winery in 1986 on a special site in the

heart of El Dorado County. The family of geologists specifically selected this location for

its prime volcanic soil that is particularly well suited to growing fine wine grapes. They

named their new business after this unique "lava cap," where their grapes flourish in the

volcanic soil, warmed by the foothill sunshine and cooled by gentle Sierra night breezes.

SERVED WITH YOUR

CHOICE OF WARM FLOUR

OR CORN TORTILLAS—FOR

TRANSPORTING THE SAVORY

PAYLOAD TO ITS DESIRED

DESTINATION—THE FLAVOR

OF THE MEAT AND ALL THE

FIXIN’S HAD MY TASTE BUDS

FULLY ENGAGED.

Angel’s

Kitchen

A Family of Fare by LORN RANDALL // photos by DANTE FONTANA

New to Folsom by way of Michoacán,

Mexico, is Angel’s Kitchen. Owned by

father-daughter duo, Rebecca Vargas

and Norbeto Velez (formerly of Familia

Taqueria), and named after Vargas’

mother, the kitchen pumps out scratchmade,

home-style Mexican fare in

comfortable, cheerful environs.

I started with one my girlfriend’s

go-to favorites: chile relleno. Luckily, Angel’s version was the authentic style she loves—a large cheese-filled

poblano pepper with a slight heat, dipped in egg batter, gently fried, and nestled in warm rojo sauce. I kept

wishing it was morning, so I could throw a poached egg on top and call it breakfast (with a cerveza, of course).

Next came the carnitas plate—shredded and lightly seasoned slow-roasted pork alongside Spanish rice, a

smooth pinto bean purée, and dollop of guacamole and crema. Served with your choice of warm flour or corn

(one drop at a time).


tortillas—for transporting the savory

payload to its desired destination—the

flavor of the meat and all the fixin’s had

my taste buds fully engaged.

On a side note, there were a couple

of muy caliente sauces on most tables.

If you’re brave enough to try them (I

was), be aware of the label’s bold

print “Xxxtra Hot Sauce” and “Chile

Habanero.” Luckily, I survived without

the customary tongue

mopping, profuse sweating,

and milk chugging of some

of my previous encounters

with untested hot sauces.

Frankly, it was quite good

Going back to more of my comfort food favorites, I ordered chile verde. The offering here included

a fairly mild green chile sauce with mouthwatering pieces of slow-simmered pork tenderloin and tortillas.

Morning, noon, or night, I’d be happy devouring this dish.

I wanted to sample the fish tacos before I left, and my order came with two, eight-inch warm tortillas filled

with breaded white fish, shredded cabbage, diced tomatoes, and Mexican crema. Plug in your choice of hot sauce

and a cold beverage, close your eyes, and picture yourself listening to the sounds of surf with your toes in the sand.

The bill might have been the best surprise of the day—all the aforementioned eats for a lofty price tag of about

$29 plus tip. Now that’s something to taco ’bout!

FIND

by ASHLEIGH GRUENWALD

Folsom State Slickers // Much to the glee of liquor lovers, Folsom State Slickers (formerly City Slickers) has reopened in

Historic Folsom. With 24 years under its belt, this family-owned watering hole continues to be the go-to spot for locals looking to get hydrated in

laid-back environs. In addition to a rotation of local beers and ciders, plus hard alcohol aplenty, the relaxed spot also pumps out some great pub

grub. From traditional bar snacks, like pretzels with beer cheese and buffalo hot wings, to breakfast sandwiches, personal pizzas, and a few sweet

desserts, there’s a little something for everyone. A few friends and I stopped by for happy hour and instantly felt at ease in the open atmosphere.

With the heat in full force, I was in dire need of a cold, crisp beer and—upon the bartender's recommendation—went with an area favorite: Knee

Deep Brewing Company's Breaking Bud India Pale Ale. This refreshing West Coast-style IPA featured plenty of hops with tropical hints of mango

and passionfruit. Craving something to soak up all the suds, I ordered one of their specialty Mini Pepperoni Pizzas—a cheesy, meaty masterpiece

that was the perfect pairing to my pint. Sitting outside on the gorgeous wraparound porch, I couldn’t help but plan my next trip to this Folsom

favorite that also features pool tables (and tournaments!), live music, and local art adorning its walls. 705 Gold Lake Drive, Suite 200, Folsom,

Family-Friendly Dining!

6 Best Kids’ Menus compiled by STYLE STAFFERS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

Forget Happy Meals. Several mom-and-pop eateries are stepping up their family-friendly dining game

to include more than just French fries and plastic toys. From fun activities and accommodating staff to

scratch-made menu items, the following places promise kiddos will leave extra happy (and full)! In no

particular order…

Aji Japanese Bistro

Back to the 80s Café and More

Skipolini’s Pizza

BarnBurner

Brickyard Kitchen and Bar

The Breakroom

“Skipolini’s Pizza lets

kids become ‘Junior Chef’

for the day by building their

own cheese or Pepperoni

Pizza at the table. My little

critter loves the thrill of

crafting his own masterpiece

only to scarf it down a few

minutes later. After, you’ll

find him climbing, sliding,

and swinging from the play

structure outside. It’s usually

an evening well spent.”

skipolinispizza.com

“The Breakroom in Shingle

Springs is where ‘food meets fun.’

They have lots, and I mean lots, of

games for the young and young

at heart (aka, my husband) and

a children’s menu that’s creative

with its names—like the ‘Whatever’

cheeseburger, the ‘I Don’t Care’

grilled cheese, and the ‘I’m Not

Hungry’ Mac ‘n’ Cheese.

Whether it’s through the food

or the games, my kids are

always thoroughly entertained.”

breakroomeatery.com

“BarnBurner in Rocklin

has something for everyone—a

loaded menu for adults, an

exciting menu for kiddos, and

another for Fido (breakfast

chow or pooch patty? Take

your pick). My nieces love their

French Toast encrusted in

Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I’ve

tried it and can see why. It’s

sweet, crunchy and combines

two breakfasts. I don’t think

they’ll tire of it anytime soon.”

916-259-1751

“Brickyard Kitchen and

Bar in Roseville screams fun

‘round every turn. The kids

stay occupied with corn hole,

Jenga, and more, while adults

enjoy some respite of their

own. A sufficient menu for

youngins provides all of their

favorites, including a juicy

Cheeseburger that comes

with a small soda and side (fries,

chips, slaw, or veggies). It’s a winwin

for all ages and appetites.”

brickyard916.com

“Back to the 80s Café

and More in Rancho Cordova

is totally rad! Step back in time

to a bygone era of Pac Man and

Pee Wee, browse through their

memorabilia, and give your kids

a taste of what life was like

when everyone had perms and

shoulder pads. When you’re

done perusing, treat junior to a

good ol’ Grilled Cheese and

reminisce. It’ll be a bonding

experience like none other.”

backtothe80scafe.com

“Aji Japanese Bistro in

El Dorado Hills is known for

their creative offerings that

extend to their kids’ menu

as well. My sushi-loving

grandson loves the Crunchy

Cali Roll that consists

of lightly fried snow crab,

avocado, and cucumber.

Trying to get each bite into

his mouth is a challenge,

but he’s getting pretty

good at those chopsticks!”

Cooking: Easy Recipes

and Kitchen Hacks

for Rookies by Alexis

Gabriel Aïnouz

(Quadrille Publishing,

2018, $19.99)

Seasonal Recipe

and Beer Pairing

• 3 1/2 oz. dried rice

noodles

• 1/3 cup full-fat

coconut milk

• 1 tbsp. runny honey

• 10 rice wrappers

SWEET SUMMER

ROLLS

Fruit, vegetable,

and fresh herb

combinations that

work well in the filling:

• Either mango,

avocado, and

chopped mint;

strawberries, red

peppers, and

chopped basil;

or cucumber,

pineapple, and fresh

chopped cilantro

SERVING SUGGESTION

• Natural yogurt

• Runny honey

Cook the rice noodles according to the packet

instructions. Drain and set them aside in a

bowl. Mix in the coconut milk and honey.

Cut one-quarter of the fruit and vegetables you

are using into attractive, thin slices (carpaccio,

anyone?) and set aside for decoration. Cut

the rest of the fruit and vegetables into thin

sticks—you are going to use them to fill the

rolls.

Picture the scene—mid-summer, blazing

hot sun. Your small son pulls your arm

and for the second time you drop a

messy pulled pork and slaw sandwich.

Meet me halfway. Not so sure that

the sticky butterscotch buns planned

for dessert are going to be any more

successful. If only you’d thought of

making my fresh sweet summer rolls…

SIP ON THIS

Kim Crawford Sauvignon

Blanc

ABV: 12%

OVERALL RATING: 4

TASTING NOTES: Fresh, juicy, and crisp;

brimming with tart acidity and fruity

sweetness; aromas of fresh-cut grass and

citrus; palate is ripe with pear, grapefruit, and

melon; balanced flavor profile; pairs brilliantly

with spicy Asian foods, seafood, or summer

salads

PRICE: $10.97

PURCHASE: Total Wine & More

Fill a large dish with warm water, dip a rice wrapper in the water, and then place the wrapper

flat on a board in front of you.

Put a few noodles and then some chopped herbs and fruit and vegetable sticks on top, laid

horizontally, one-third of the way from the edge of the wrapper nearest your navel. Topped with

fruit and vegetable slices so they line up with the sticks.

Roll the rice wrapper around the filling, folding the sides in as you go to seal the summer roll.

If you’ve done the job properly, you’ll see the fruit and vegetable slices through the transparent

wrapper.

Mix together some yogurt and honey and use as a dipping sauce. Makes 10 rolls.

SOLID GROUND BREWING COMPANY’S CLOUDS REST

ABV: 6.5%

Named after a mountain in Yosemite National

Hailing from Marlborough, New Zealand, Kim Crawford’s aromatic, perfectly balanced

wines started winning awards soon after they launched in 1996 and have continued to

impress and gain a fanatical following. For more info, visit kimcrawfordwines.com.

Kim Crawford Pinot Noir

ABV: 13%

OVERALL RATING: 2

TASTING NOTES: Dark cherry

and strawberry flavors that are

complemented by subtle hints of

oak; mild and smooth without many

tannins; good balance of dryness and

acidity; shines with a variety of foods,

including red meat, roasted chicken,

and sharp cheeses

PRICE: $16.49

PURCHASE: Total Wine & More

OVERALL RATING is the average score (out of 5) given by Style staff tasters. Ratings should be taken with a grain

of salt, as we are by no means “experts”—just hard-working employees who enjoy imbibing.

Pairs with

Park, Clouds Rest is a hazy IPA that boasts a

light, juicy body and slightly

bitter finish that nicely

opposes its fruity

flavors. The pairing of

Galaxy and Hallertau

Blanc hops give it

sweet aromas of

papaya, guava, and

white wine. Thanks

to a bity bitterness, it’s

refreshingly different than

other hazy IPAs but still leaves

a clean, crisp finish, making it the perfect pint

for a warm summer’s eve.

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

After relocating to El Dorado Hills from Boston three years ago, I was

commuting to the East Coast once a month to take care of my longtime

clients. I’m thrilled to now be part of the team at Adagio for Hair where

everyone is committed to providing the best service possible for every

guest. Since my early teenage years, I knew I wanted to do hair and

have focused my career on color for the last 17 years.

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from

the experience?

Baskin-Robins. I learned early on about customer service and

presentation. No one wants a sloppy ice cream cone!

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

Personally, completing my first triathlon. It was the hardest thing

physically, other than having children, that I’ve ever done; I had to tell

myself "You are strong" the whole way in order to finish.

Where do you go when the going gets tough?

To my yoga mat to find inner peace.

What’s your biggest job perk?

Fostering relationships with my clients and seeing the self-confidence

they walk out with after our time together.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

Sky Sushi.

If you could be in any other profession, what would it be?

I love decorating my home and could see myself doing interior design

work or being a party planner—anything where I can express myself

creatively.

And finally, customer service is…?

Everything.

Describe your business.

MacLaren-Cochrane Publishing creates books in dyslexic font that

teach, inspire, and help children discover the beautiful world of reading.

Our books show that diversity is a beautiful thing and that everyone

has a story to tell. The dyslexic font is an important step forward in

helping people who suffer from the disorder, and we’re proud to offer

it in all the books we make.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

The children I’ve raised.

Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?

My husband, Todd, because he never stops trying to make life worth

living.

Where do you go when the going gets tough?

The ocean.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

The Original Mels Diner. The people there always make us feel like

family.

Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?

The park.

What’s your favorite local event that you go to?

Tuesday movie night.

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

Barnes & Noble.

If you could be in any other profession, what would it be?

A screenwriter.
