Style Magazine El Dorado County Foothills: October 2019

StyleMediaGroup

Fifteen years ago, we produced our first Readers’ Choice Awards issue, which was the community’s opportunity to vote on who they believe is the best. It is the single most read and referenced issue we produce each year and we owe a very special group of people special thanks for making this issue happen–you, our readers!

Thousands of readers cast more than 120,000 votes for local businesses and organizations this year. It’s hard to believe how much this contest has grown and how much it means to the winners and to the readers who source this issue (both in print and online) when making all types of buying decisions every day. We are proud to say that our Readers’ Choice Awards is the largest awards contest of its type in the Sacramento region. What’s most important to our readers is knowing their votes count, we don’t choose winners because they are advertisers. We don’t choose the winners at all. This is truly a contest voted on by the readers alone.

We want to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your readership and support of STYLE. And for all the winners who chose to say “thank you” for voting for them by placing an ad in our special section, well, we very much thank you, too! Congrats to each and every one of you!

| publisher’s letter |

It was 16 Years ago this month that we were

preparing the launch of what is now STYLE

Magazine. We cannot believe how fast the time

has gone!

Since that first issue, we have produced

more than 12 million publications (always using

environmentally friendly

paper and inks!), thousands

of stories, profiles of local

businesses, artists, nonprofits,

people making a

difference, restaurants

and–well, the list goes on

and on. And we are proud

of all of it, just as we are

proud of more than $3

million that we’ve given

back to the communities

we serve in a host of ways.

We are most proud of

the content we produce–

REAL editorial, not glowing

stories of advertisers, but

editorial written by our talented editorial staff and

freelance writers.

Fifteen years ago, we produced our first Readers’

Choice Awards issue, which was the community’s

opportunity to vote on who they believe is the best. It is the

single most read and referenced issue we produce each

year and we owe a very special group of people special

thanks for making this issue happen–you, our readers!

Thousands of readers cast more than 120,000 votes

for local businesses and organizations this year. It’s hard

to believe how much this contest has grown and how

much it means to the winners and to the readers who

source this issue (both in print and online) when making

all types of buying decisions every day. We are proud to

say that our Readers’ Choice Awards is the largest awards

contest of its type in the Sacramento region. What’s most

important to our readers is knowing their votes count,

we don’t choose winners because they are advertisers.

We don’t choose the winners at all. This is truly a contest

voted on by the readers alone.

We want to take this opportunity to let you know how

much we appreciate your readership and support of

STYLE. And for all the winners who chose to say “thank

you” for voting for them by placing an ad in our special

section, well, we very much thank you, too! Congrats to

each and every one of you!

Drivers not using their right or left

I cannot stand when people

are not on time when we have

plans to meet. Everyone’s time

is so valuable and it should be

respected. I always try to be a bit

early too. —Kourtney Jason

Bad drivers—especially those who

Bad grammar and spelling. With spell

Our September issue’s “Slice Advice” feature failed to

mention the Mountain Mike’s located at 25075 Blue

Ravine Road, Suite 150 in Folsom (in the Parkway Shopping

Center). Stop by and try their delicious garlic knots

and expansive salad bar, not to mention their Garlic

Tuscan pizza...In the same feature, we incorrectly

described the Veggie Pizza at Strings Café in

Folsom (25035 Blue Ravine Road, Suite 120). This delicious

pie is loaded with Italian chesses, broccoli, mushrooms,

artichoke, bell peppers, olives, red and green

onions, and Roma tomatoes atop a zesty red sauce.

In September’s Introducing on Passport 2 Health

Chiropractic, we misprinted the answer to “Fun Fact

stated: “I call it a ‘co-op’—every board member and

contributor (i.e. graphic designer, CPA, insurance agent,

general contractor) is also a patient.” For more on the

GET TO KNOW

Erica Pope

Rocklin resident Erica Pope remembers a

childhood bustling with activity, especially

cooking and cleaning—not for her family,

but for others. “My parents were always

doing community work and bringing people

together,” she fondly recalls. Their example

influenced Pope’s decision to go into the

nonprofit field where she worked in fund

development and community outreach

for Eskaton Foundation, an organization

that provides care and support services

for seniors while giving caregivers time for

themselves. “I loved feeling like I was making

a difference in somebody’s life,” Pope

shares.

But Pope’s life took an unexpected turn

when she had to stop working to care for

a family member who was ill. At the same

“We all have

a social

responsibility.”

—Erica Pope

time, she learned

that she would need

spinal surgery. Yet,

Pope was eager

to get back to the

career she loved and

after her recovery,

she jumped at the

chance to become the new Director of

Development for the Me-One Foundation

(me-onefoundation.org), a local nonprofit

that funds an annual pampering weekend

retreat in the Santa Monica mountains

for adult cancer patients and their family

members. Like many others, Pope has had

family and friends affected by cancer and

she knows how impactful such services can

be. She’s also a mom of two who hopes to

inspire her children to help others just as

her own parents once did for her. “We all

have a social responsibility,” Pope says. “The

community gives so much to us and we

should give back.” —Amber Foster

Q&A

What advice would you

give to your younger

self?

Take care of your body

and mind. They will either serve you well or

catch up to you. Either way, what you do

when you’re young will influence the rest of

your life.

What comes to you naturally?

Public speaking. I love the challenge of

engaging an audience and that moment

when you know you have them.

Are you high or low maintenance?

I’m high maintenance when it comes to food,

shoes, and coffee. But I’m low maintenance

when it comes to vacations or entertainment.

I’m content sitting around a campfire or

playing board games.

Biggest life inspirations?

Both my mom and dad are incredibly

remarkable and inspiring but my biggest life

inspirations come from the journeys and stories

of all the people I know and have yet to meet.

Everyone has a story and a lesson if we take the

time to listen.

What are you most proud of?

Keeping two children alive. I understand why

wild animals occasionally eat their young.

My children are 16 and 8 so anything is still

possible.

Favorite humanitarian cause?

Cancer causes and hunger. My dad often went

hungry as a child and the few stories he shared

were heartbreaking. No one should ever have to

experience that—especially children.

Best words of wisdom you’ve received?

“Always be on your best behavior when you

are out and about. You never know who knows

you or knows someone who knows you.”-Izetta

Jansma (my grandmother)

Halloween Happenings

By Tara Mendanha

Who’s up

for some

Halloween

fun? We

know we

looking for

a howling

good time

this year

look no

further

than these

exciting

events below.

It’s back! The Hangtown Music Festival

is coming to Placerville between October

24 and 27 and it’s bringing over 30 bands

to the stage. With the spirit of Halloween

everywhere, you’ll be in for a wild ride

Dorado County Fairgounds, attend late night

concerts, and dress up to different costume

themes each day. There will also be arts

and craft vendors and a variety of food and

drink, and kids can enjoy a circus, pumpkin

carving, and their own music session.

hangtownfestival.com

For some good, old-fashioned trick-ortreating

fun, head to the FestiFall and

Costume Contest in Historic Folsom.

Vendors along the district will be dishing out

treats to the little ones and there’s lots of

fun to be had with jump houses and games

at the Wool and Sutter Street parking lot. At

2 p.m. there will be a preview of Cinderella,

performed by Cynthia’s Dance Center; at 2:30

p.m. there will be a Mad Scientist show at

the amphitheater; and at 3 p.m. the costume

their faces painted. Don’t forget to dress

in costume! roseville.ca.us/cms/One.

aspx?portalId=7964922&pageId=8916670

For something a little slower-paced—but

by no means, tame—sign up for Haunted

Hangtown Ghost Tours in Placerville.

The Cuppa Coffee & More investigation

takes place October 27 and the Carey

House Investigation takes place October

6, 13, 20, and 30. Both tours start at

around 7 p.m. and will take you through

the historic buildings. If the spirits come

out to play, you might spot apparitions,

mists, or orbs. You’ll get to use the latest

ghost-hunting equipment and hear tales

of murder, misfortune, and mayhem.

hauntedhangtownghosttours.com

If you’re looking for some thrills this

Halloween, Heartstoppers Haunted

House in Rancho Cordova will deliver.

Beginning on October 4 every Friday and

Saturday (ends November 2), you’ll get to

“experience the brutality, greed, and filth that

was the undead West.” Choose to traverse one

of their four “haunts” and brace yourselves for

a fright—or three. Scares aside, there’s also a

fun carnival extravaganza, laser tag, haunted

photo booths, antique saloon bar, and more.

heartstoppershaunt.com

A crazy, bloody theatrical experience is coming

to get you with Sutter Street Theatre’s

Evil Dead The Musical. Five college

students go to an abandoned cabin in the

woods and accidentally unleash an evil force

that turns them all into demons. It’s all up

to Ash and his trusty chainsaw to save the

day. Blood flies, limbs are dismembered, and

demons tell bad jokes—all to music. Grab a

seat in the “[blood] splatter zone” and get

ready for some zany fun. sutterstreettheatre.

com/evil-dead-the-musical-2019

Bring all your little ghosts and goblins in full

costume for a Trick-or-Treat with the

Folsom Police Department at an open

house with a Halloween Twist. Kids will not

only get to trick-or-treat, but also meet the

K-9 Unit, Mounted Unit, check out SWAT gear,

and lots more. The event is at the Folsom

Police Department at Natoma Street on

October 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. folsom.

ca.us/police

There’s an exciting alternative to trick-ortreating

this Halloween—it’s Trunk-or-

Treat, put on by the Cappuccino Cruisers.

Aquatic Center on Riley Street will come

alive with Halloween music, lots of goodies,

costumes contests, and many decorated

Take a Hike

AMERICAN RIVER CONSERVANCY

BY EMILY PETER

ask the experts

Q: IS SHAVING EVERY DAY BAD FOR

THE FACE?

A: Shaving is excellent as it effectively

exfoliates your skin. When you shave

you are removing hair, dirt, oil, and also

dead skin cells. Your skin never stops

growing new cells and when the old

cells die and stay on your skin, they lead

to oil deposits, ingrown hairs, clogged

pores, and dull skin. If you’re seeing

irritation or bumps, consider your razor.

Many men are switching to a straight

razor due to razor burn. Using a straight

razor takes practice, but you can get a

great shave with only one pass causing

less irritation. We recommend letting an

expert show you the way, so it’s best to

have a licensed barber deliver your first

straight razor shave so they can safely

introduce you to proper shaving.

TRAINING HILL HIKE on

October 11 from 1:30-5

p.m.

This very strenuous twoand-a-half

hike will loop

from Training Hill to one of

the last legs of the Western

24 stylemg.com | OCTOBER 2019 | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags

States Trail where the first mile is almost straight

up. At the top you’ll connect with the Pointed

Q: HOW DO I KNOW WHICH GROUP

EXERCISE CLASSES ARE BEST FOR ME?

A: Any class that inspires you to

regularly attend is the best class for

you. Once you begin, your group fitness

instructor will be a pro at helping you

get through the most challenging of

classes. Week by week you will improve

and get stronger and the class that

seemed impossible the first time you

attended won’t seem so difficult after

several weeks. A few things to consider

when choosing what’s best for you:

-Determine the time of day that will

work best for your schedule.

-Decide what specific benefits you want

to achieve from your workouts. If you

are unsure what benefits each type of

class provides, reach out to the Group

Exercise Director for guidance.

-Don’t worry so much about whether

the workout may not be your level

because your level will improve

in a short time. You do need to be

challenged if you want to continually

see fitness improvements.

-Give yourself several weeks to try

several class types, instructors and time

slots.

Five Local Breast Cancer Support Groups

by JANET SCHERR

Courage and strength triumph over adversity

right here where we live. Breast cancer

patients, survivors, and their families who

have fought the disease have turned around to

become founders, activists, and volunteers at these

local breast cancer organizations.

ALBIE AWARE

Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation was created

in 2004 by Doug Carson to honor his late wife, Albie.

Tragically, Albie lost her battle with breast cancer and the

foundation now aims to replace fear with facts. Since its

founding, Albie Aware has provided assistance for diagnostic

testing to thousands of women and men in the Sacramento

area. “Along with testing, we serve as a go-to resource,” says

Amanda C. Nelson, Executive Director of Albie Aware. “Our

mission is to provide patient advocacy, prevention education,

and compassionate support to local individuals facing or

fighting breast cancer.”

albieaware.org

IMAGES OF HOPE (Serving El Dorado County)

Glass art making, silk scarf painting, yoga practice, and

equine therapy are just a few of the free classes offered

by Images of Hope to those who have been impacted

by cancer. Funded by the Marshall Foundation for

Community Health, the activities provide a pleasurable respite

from the stress that cancer patients and caregivers must deal

with on a day-to-day basis. The classes are small and casual

with local people from all walks of life. No prior experience

in art or movement is required. Additionally, there is a breast

cancer support group that meets monthly and most events

are held at the Marshall Cancer Resource Center in Cameron

Park. Images of Hope is also responsible for Pink in the Night

during the month of October where downtown Placerville is

illuminated with pink lights to symbolize the community’s

united fight against cancer.

SAVE OURSELVES

When a group of young women came together to support one another during

their breast cancer treatment, the collaboration turned into an extraordinary

friendship. That peer support became the prototype for Save Ourselves (SOS) Breast

Cancer Organization, founded in 1991 by those same, strong cancer survivors. Today,

its members and volunteers speak to civic groups, professional organizations, schools,

workplaces, health clubs, legislators, and community events about breast health

awareness. SOS also offers a variety of educational forums and fundraising events.

save-ourselves.org

GIRLS LOVE MAIL

Words can be compelling, especially if they

are written by hand. Girls Love Mail collects

handwritten–and often artistic–letters

of encouragement and delivers them to

women who have been newly diagnosed

with breast cancer. “I founded the charity

in August of 2011 after receiving over 200

letters, mostly from strangers, that helped

in my healing from breast cancer,” says Gina

Mulligan, founder of Girls Love Mail. “It’s

such a simple, yet powerful way to provide comfort. People from around the country

have joined in the cause and so far, we’ve sent letters to over 165,000 women!”

girlslovemail.com

PLACER BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION

Breast cancer survivors and South Placer County residents Carol Garcia and Teri

Munger formed the Placer Breast Cancer Endowment in 2005. The goal was to raise $1.5

million to endow a Breast Cancer Chair at the U.C. Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center.

“We reached that $1.5 million-dollar goal in 2014,” says Garcia, Board Chair. “But the

fight had just begun; and

now, as the Placer Breast

Cancer Foundation, our

volunteer-based group still

works tirelessly to raise

funds to fight breast cancer

and promote education

throughout the Placer and

Sacramento County area.”

Spotlight on

Folsom VYBE

by HEATHER L. NELSON

Photo by Dante Fontana.

What began as a small team challenge to positively impact others, has grown

into a large-scale musical celebration benefitting the Folsom community and

the Twin Lakes Food Bank. On October 17, VYBE will arise at the Harris Center

featuring a concert, commemorative album, fine food, craft beer, local wine, and more.

The volunteer VYBE team consisting of leader Josh Bollen and members Todd Speelman,

Taryn Grows, Jamison Hiebert, Greg Fuson, Robyne Cortes, Sarah Brown, Lisa Tuter, Jon

Lee, and Jacob Renfro, aim to not only support Twin Lakes but also nourish the community

at large. “Whenever we create connection between people, we decrease division,” shares

Bollen. “We hope that through VYBE, there are thousands of connections made between

people of all different walks of life.”

OCTOBER 2019 | stylemg.com 43


| arts & entertainment |

HLN: HOW DID YOU CREATE THE VYBE

CONCEPT?

JB: VYBE started as a challenge to staff at Lakeside

Church to do something that would inspire and

encourage our community, and so the original

group of three or four people started dreaming

about the project. We all love music and the idea of

a Folsom area compilation album quickly jumped

to the top of our list. Then someone mentioned the

idea of an album release party and the idea for VYBE

was formed. Knowing we had to assemble some key

community influencers, we invited several more

onto the team. The energy at that first meeting was

electric!

HLN: HOW ARE YOU COLLABORATING

WITH TWIN LAKES FOOD BANK?

JB: We knew there had to be more purpose than

just music—we also needed to give back to our

community. Twin Lakes has a mission to nourish

lives in our community and that’s a mission we

could all support. They do this by providing basic

needs of nutritious food and social assistance—while

VYBE [carries out a similar mission] through the

inspiration of the arts. We hope that through this

partnership, there will be hundreds, if not thousands,

of lives made better because of the resources raised.

HLN: CAN YOU SHARE MORE EVENT

DETAILS?

JB: The evening at Harris Center kicks off with a

VIP dinner provided by longtime Folsom staple,

Visconti’s. There will be vendors and sponsors

outside and in the lobby including album sales,

VYBE merchandise, and photo opportunities, with

every single dollar in profit going directly to Twin

Lakes. The concert will then be held in the main

auditorium featuring 10 bands throughout the

evening.

HLN: IN WHAT WAYS DO YOU HOPE TO

NOURISH THE WHOLE COMMUNITY?

JB: When you buy your ticket to VYBE you are

supporting not only the music and the arts, but also

the food bank. While the music will be diverse, the

purpose is unified. We hope this sentiment is shared

throughout all aspects of the event and that the

album will be a reminder of that unity. Even bigger,

VYBE wants to display what our little community is

capable of when we work together. It doesn’t take a

large corporation or millions to make a difference in

the world—all it takes is using the resources that you

have and giving them to others.

to be found. But one day her dad

sees her in Central Park and begs

her to come home. She runs and

he follows her into her dangerous

new world only to face things he

never knew existed—just in order

to save her.

An Anonymous

Girl

by Greer Hendricks

& Sarah Pekkanen

Jessica Farris needs money and

an opportunity seemingly falls

into her lap. She signs up to be

a test subject in a psychological

study about ethics and morality.

As the study progresses, Jessica

starts to feel like the doctor in

charge of the study knows what

she’s thinking and feeling, and her

actions are being manipulated in

a deadly game that she needs to

get out of.

Reading doesn’t have to be a solitary

experience especially when you

can find book clubs almost

anywhere nowadays. They’re one

of the most popular forms of

adult socialization. And, there are

benefits to joining one. First of all,

it may help push you to finish a

book. It’s easy to find other things

to do but if you know you have

to read a book by a certain date,

being in a book club will help

you focus on reading. Reading

can reduce stress, improve

mental stimulation, and improve

memory. It makes you more

knowledgeable and can improve

vocabulary. Joining a book club

can also help you make friends.

So, where do you find a book club?

You can either start your own with

a group of friends or find one that is

already formed by checking your local

library, local book stores, or searching

online.

Helping

Hands

Local Food Banks

by JULIE RYAN

According to the California Association of Food Banks,

"1 in 8 Californian's struggles with food insecurity. Food

insecurity is the occasional or constant lack of access

to the food one needs for a healthy, active life."

Food is vital for living and those who don’t get

enough can suffer from physical and mental health problems. It can

affect every aspect of their lives from school to work performance and

home life. Hunger is not limited to certain people. Children, seniors,

disabled, working poor, and people who are dealing with unexpected

expenses can be affected. If you or someone you know is experiencing

hunger, there is help.

Accidents Happen!

When it comes to driving on roadways, sometimes

accidents are unavoidable, especially in harsh

weather conditions like rain and snow. That’s when

Stymeist Collision Centers has you covered.

Bringing your vehicle back to manufacture specifications

for appearance and safety is what Stymeist is all about.

Their top notch employees undergo countless hours of

training to stay ahead of the rapidly changing vehicle

designs. Damaged cars are repaired to the highest

standards using many of the same techniques the factory

uses on the assemble line.

While many insurance companies refer their clients

to Stymeist, the employees never lose sight of who

their customer is and that is “you” says owner

Steve Stymeist. This is something that many body

shops forget to acknowledge and while an insurance

company may be paying for the repairs, it’s the owner

of the car we are really serving. The vehicle owner will

always be our true customer.

Stymeist Collision Centers have been in business for

over 30 years and they have multiple locations in

Placerville and Jackson, including an RV repair shop.

transformed their kitchen into the focus of the home.

The homeowners were eager to upgrade because of the

possibilities. “The chance to take a cramped, dysfunctional,

and dark space and make it into an efficient, light, and airy

environment that the whole family could enjoy [was exciting],”

shares Jane Reed, co-owner of Brush Strokes Inc.

New cabinets, countertops, floors, lighting, appliances, and

windows were all on the docket for this remodel. Dated oak

cabinets and tiled countertops were replaced with bright, white

cabinets featuring soft-closing drawers and doors, and a gorgeous

white ice granite countertop. Cabinet organizers and rollouts

were also installed to maximize space. Plenty of storage and a

large island were a priority. “They wanted lots of storage, a large

island that could fit all their grandchildren, and plenty of space

for entertaining,” says Reed. The oven was moved, and a desk area

removed to make way for floor-to-ceiling cabinetry; the island

remodeled with an overhang allowing counter-height seating for

eager onlookers.

A glass and stone mosaic tiled backsplash was added to create

contrast between the upper and lower cabinets, as well as dark,

wood-effect porcelain tile for the flooring to balance the nowbright

space. The homeowners kept their refrigerator which

inspired the black faucet and single bowl black sink that sits

below the newly raised window. The kitchen was finished with

new appliances (range, hood, dishwasher, and microwave) and

downlights, and was totally transformed into a welcoming hub of

the home. “[We are] very happy with this project and glad that the

homeowners are thrilled with their new kitchen,” shares Reed.

Hotel Grande Bretagne The Greece I

experienced on my late

winter, off-season trip

meant meeting locals

who are proud of their

heritage but remain

humble, a slow-paced,

enviable lifestyle that’s

all too easy to adapt

to, and landscapes

that reach far beyond beaches. The postcard-perfect Mediterranean

country—comprised of thousands of islands and often called the

“cradle of Western civilization”—stole a piece of my heart and only

a fraction of my money (prices are extremely fair when it comes to

Europe) but left me longing to return.

Interested in planning your own Grecian getaway? Follow my guide

for tips on what to see and do and where to stay.

ATHENS

Hip, historic, enterprising, energetic. Welcome to Greece’s storied

capital city. The large metropolis—and one of the world’s oldest—is

home to just under one million people with a perfect mix of glam

and grunge. Strolling through one of the myriad neighborhoods,

expect to see sun-bleached ruins nestled next to modern

infrastructure and a surplus of side streets splashed in mesmerizing

murals.

STAY

For those who want to sleep in the lap of luxury:

Hotel Grande Bretagne pulls out all the stops. Sited next to

Syntagma Square smack dab in the city center, this five-star property

built in 1842 boasts Old World opulence, state-of-the-art amenities,

and plush décor that’ll make you feel like royalty. Breakfast on the

rooftop garden is a meal worth waking up for—think fresh-squeezed

juices, expertly crafted espresso drinks, and scratch-made Greek

and Western fare.

St. George Lycabettus Hotel is your spot. Set away from the main

slopes of Lycabettus Hill and next to

Kolonaki, the boutique, family-run

property offers sincere hospitality, an

art gallery, rooftop pool, and restaurant,

there’s plenty to keep guests engrossed.

metropolis so special.

Dinner with the locals

Avoid the tourist traps that try to lure you

in with their faux food in glass-enclosed

cases and go where the locals go. Vezene,

a Greek-inspired, Michelin Plate bistro, is

sited in a cozy, sophisticated setting, and

dishes out family-style plates that may

include aged beef tartare “pastistio” style;

wood-fired pies with eclectic toppings

like cherry-smoked baby lamb; and

aged meats that melt in your mouth.

For those who appreciate a good pun

(and wholesome, high-quality comfort

food), Nice n Easy is a must. From “The

Paul Newman” (a Caesar salad with a

Mediterranean twist) to “The Marvin Gaye”

(minced buffalo meatballs with yogurt

and mint) and “The Marlon Brando”

(organic beef burger with cheddar,

caramelized onions, coleslaw, and pickles

on brioche), it’s a taste of Hollywood in

one of Athen’s most high-end ‘hoods.

NAFPLIO

The stunning seaport village of Nafplio,

the original capital of Greece and thought

to be one of the country’s most romantic

destinations, is located just under two

hours from Athens on the Peloponnese

peninsula and offers idyllic scenery with

easy access to renowned ruins. Often

“Seas” the day

A trip to Greece really wouldn’t be complete with at least one island

adventure. And though the majority of visitors will immediately flee

to Mykonos or Santorini, a trip to the affluent island of Spetses—a

car-free, carefree place that’s rich in history (it was the first of the

Greek islands to raise the flag of Revolution on April 3, 1821), teeming

with tavernas, and relatively untouched by tourists—is well worth

the short drive and ferry ride.

Step way back in time

On your drive back to Athens, it’s imperative you stop at two of of

the country’s most popular and significant archaeological sites:

Epidaurus—known for its ancient theatre that’s thought to represent

the finest and best-preserved examples of a classical Greek theatre

with exceptional acoustics—and Mycenae—a fortified, late Bronze

Age citadel that was once the largest and most important center of

civilization.

Can you keep a secret? If I told you there is a

place to get upscale New American cuisine

with a French twist at one-half to one-third

the price of, well, anywhere, could I trust you

not to tell anyone? I didn’t think so; and that’s just what

owners John and Lynette Evans of Brewhouse at Jackz

like to hear.

Chef and owner John’s considerable knowledge

and skills showcase his menu, bringing locally-sourced,

house-made delights from charcuterie and appetizers

to entrées and desserts. I started with the crispy

Brussels sprouts. It’s unfathomable that the repugnant

miniature cabbage of my youth has been reformatted

into a mouthful of savory deliciousness. Served with

a trio of house-made sauces (mustard, ranch, and

black bean aioli) they’re a must-try. I also sampled the

pulled pork terrine—a charcuterie presentation of

roast pork that’s pulled, chopped, pressed into a terrine,

refrigerated, sliced and served on a butcher block with

bread, pickled cherries, and a mouth-watering red

onion jam.

During a conversation with Chef John, the topic

turned to the exceptional measures his beef and pork

vendors employ to bring the highest quality, humanely

grown, and processed product to market. This includes

the American Kobe (Wagyu) used in their burgers. From

there we segued to the main entrée(s). First,

beef cheeks that were slow-braised and served

with port wine, and demi-glace reduction,

and topped with pickled cherries, alongside a

perfect swirl of mashed potatoes.

I don’t eat many hamburgers—blasphemy,

I know, in this day of the fried-egg-kimchiavocado-Spam-Bánh

mi-vegetable-porkbelly-and-brisket

pantheon of burgers, but

they’re usually not up to the hype. So after

our previous conversation I decided I’d give

the Kobe “Hangtown” burger a try. Fairly

straightforward, it came with thick-cut bacon,

lettuce, cheddar, a little pickled jalapeño, and

house-made pickle as the only accouterments.

The flavor, juiciness, and texture of the Kobe

beef, filled me with a renewed enthusiasm for

the classic American creation.

After nibbling for an eternity on a massive

ice cream sandwich, I relented and asked for

the check. Which, upon its arrival, left me with

a distinct sense of reverse sticker shock.

Brewhouse at Jackz “specializes in New

American food and El Dorado craft beer and

wine,” say owners Lynette and John. And remember,

a secret is something you only tell your friends—and

now I’m telling you.

Sutter Station Sweets & Café // I found the cutest

café in Folsom! Adorable inside and out, it’s one of those places where you feel at

home as soon as you walk in. Once you take in the charming setting, you can focus

on the enticing menu—breakfast and lunch paninis, scones, cinnamon rolls, and

cookies bigger than your head. Seriously. Everything is baked in-house and all of it looks

so yummy. I ordered the breakfast burrito which happens to be their most popular

breakfast item. It was filled with bacon (or sausage if you please), scrambled egg, seasoned

potatoes, cheddar cheese, and a tasty sriracha sour cream all wrapped nicely in a fresh made tortilla.

My 10-year-old daughter had, in her words, “the best hot chocolate I’ve had in a long time.” I also bought a Chinese chicken salad

to go so I’d have something to look forward to for lunch. Yep, it was good, too. They also have chicken Caesar salad, spinach

salad, and the Station Salad, which has mixed greens, fresh tomatoes, bacon, dried cranberries, and sweet pecans. Honestly,

I don’t think you could go wrong with any choice on their menu. Other menu items include grilled PB&J, coffees and teas, and,

of course, cookies bigger than your head! 300 Reading Street, Folsom, 916-467-7070 —Julie Ryan
