Style Magazine El Dorado County Foothills: October 2019

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! — All the Best, Terry Carroll & Wendy Sipple Publishers

| publisher’s letter |<br />

It was 16 Years ago this month that we were<br />

preparing the launch of what is now STYLE<br />

<strong>Magazine</strong>. We cannot believe how fast the time<br />

has gone!<br />

Since that first issue, we have produced<br />

more than 12 million publications (always using<br />

environmentally friendly<br />

paper and inks!), thousands<br />

of stories, profiles of local<br />

businesses, artists, nonprofits,<br />

people making a<br />

difference, restaurants<br />

and–well, the list goes on<br />

and on. And we are proud<br />

of all of it, just as we are<br />

proud of more than $3<br />

million that we’ve given<br />

back to the communities<br />

we serve in a host of ways.<br />

We are most proud of<br />

the content we produce–<br />

REAL editorial, not glowing<br />

stories of advertisers, but<br />

editorial written by our talented editorial staff and<br />

freelance writers.<br />

Fifteen years ago, we produced our first Readers’<br />

Choice Awards issue, which was the community’s<br />

opportunity to vote on who they believe is the best. It is the<br />

single most read and referenced issue we produce each<br />

year and we owe a very special group of people special<br />

thanks for making this issue happen–you, our readers!<br />

Thousands of readers cast more than 120,000 votes<br />

for local businesses and organizations this year. It’s hard<br />

to believe how much this contest has grown and how<br />

much it means to the winners and to the readers who<br />

source this issue (both in print and online) when making<br />

all types of buying decisions every day. We are proud to<br />

say that our Readers’ Choice Awards is the largest awards<br />

contest of its type in the Sacramento region. What’s most<br />

important to our readers is knowing their votes count,<br />

we don’t choose winners because they are advertisers.<br />

We don’t choose the winners at all. This is truly a contest<br />

voted on by the readers alone.<br />

We want to take this opportunity to let you know how<br />

much we appreciate your readership and support of<br />

STYLE. And for all the winners who chose to say “thank<br />

you” for voting for them by placing an ad in our special<br />

section, well, we very much thank you, too! Congrats to<br />

each and every one of you!<br />

— All the Best,<br />

PEEVE?<br />

Drivers not using their right or left<br />

I cannot stand when people<br />

are not on time when we have<br />

plans to meet. Everyone’s time<br />

is so valuable and it should be<br />

respected. I always try to be a bit<br />

early too. —Kourtney Jason<br />

Bad drivers—especially those who<br />

don’t use their turn signal and those<br />

who think a stop sign is a mere<br />

suggestion. —Tara Mendanha<br />

When people watch Netflix videos<br />

in windowed mode. Full screen it or<br />

minimize it; don’t leave me hanging<br />

in digital limbo! —Ray Burgess<br />

Bad grammar and spelling. With spell<br />

check and The Google Machine,<br />

there's no excuse for incorrect<br />

grammar and spelling! I used to<br />

always correct my kids’ emails to<br />

me, which is probably the reason<br />

they no longer email me.<br />

GET TO KNOW<br />

Erica Pope<br />

Rocklin resident Erica Pope remembers a<br />

childhood bustling with activity, especially<br />

cooking and cleaning—not for her family,<br />

but for others. “My parents were always<br />

doing community work and bringing people<br />

together,” she fondly recalls. Their example<br />

influenced Pope’s decision to go into the<br />

nonprofit field where she worked in fund<br />

development and community outreach<br />

for Eskaton Foundation, an organization<br />

that provides care and support services<br />

for seniors while giving caregivers time for<br />

themselves. “I loved feeling like I was making<br />

a difference in somebody’s life,” Pope<br />

shares.<br />

But Pope’s life took an unexpected turn<br />

when she had to stop working to care for<br />

a family member who was ill. At the same<br />

“We all have<br />

a social<br />

responsibility.”<br />

—Erica Pope<br />

time, she learned<br />

that she would need<br />

spinal surgery. Yet,<br />

Pope was eager<br />

to get back to the<br />

career she loved and<br />

after her recovery,<br />

she jumped at the<br />

chance to become the new Director of<br />

Development for the Me-One Foundation<br />

(me-onefoundation.org), a local nonprofit<br />

that funds an annual pampering weekend<br />

retreat in the Santa Monica mountains<br />

for adult cancer patients and their family<br />

members. Like many others, Pope has had<br />

family and friends affected by cancer and<br />

she knows how impactful such services can<br />

be. She’s also a mom of two who hopes to<br />

inspire her children to help others just as<br />

her own parents once did for her. “We all<br />

have a social responsibility,” Pope says. “The<br />

community gives so much to us and we<br />

should give back.” —Amber Foster<br />

Q&A<br />

What advice would you<br />

give to your younger<br />

self?<br />

Take care of your body<br />

and mind. They will either serve you well or<br />

catch up to you. Either way, what you do<br />

when you’re young will influence the rest of<br />

your life.<br />

What comes to you naturally?<br />

Public speaking. I love the challenge of<br />

engaging an audience and that moment<br />

when you know you have them.<br />

Are you high or low maintenance?<br />

I’m high maintenance when it comes to food,<br />

shoes, and coffee. But I’m low maintenance<br />

when it comes to vacations or entertainment.<br />

I’m content sitting around a campfire or<br />

playing board games.<br />

Biggest life inspirations?<br />

Both my mom and dad are incredibly<br />

remarkable and inspiring but my biggest life<br />

inspirations come from the journeys and stories<br />

of all the people I know and have yet to meet.<br />

Everyone has a story and a lesson if we take the<br />

time to listen.<br />

What are you most proud of?<br />

Keeping two children alive. I understand why<br />

wild animals occasionally eat their young.<br />

My children are 16 and 8 so anything is still<br />

possible.<br />

Favorite humanitarian cause?<br />

Cancer causes and hunger. My dad often went<br />

hungry as a child and the few stories he shared<br />

were heartbreaking. No one should ever have to<br />

experience that—especially children.<br />

Best words of wisdom you’ve received?<br />

“Always be on your best behavior when you<br />

are out and about. You never know who knows<br />

you or knows someone who knows you.”-Izetta<br />

Jansma (my grandmother)<br />

AMERICAN RIVER CONSERVANCY<br />

BY EMILY PETER<br />

ask the experts<br />

Q: IS SHAVING EVERY DAY BAD FOR<br />

THE FACE?<br />

A: Shaving is excellent as it effectively<br />

exfoliates your skin. When you shave<br />

you are removing hair, dirt, oil, and also<br />

dead skin cells. Your skin never stops<br />

growing new cells and when the old<br />

cells die and stay on your skin, they lead<br />

to oil deposits, ingrown hairs, clogged<br />

pores, and dull skin. If you’re seeing<br />

irritation or bumps, consider your razor.<br />

Many men are switching to a straight<br />

razor due to razor burn. Using a straight<br />

razor takes practice, but you can get a<br />

great shave with only one pass causing<br />

less irritation. We recommend letting an<br />

expert show you the way, so it’s best to<br />

have a licensed barber deliver your first<br />

straight razor shave so they can safely<br />

introduce you to proper shaving.<br />

Q: HOW DO I KNOW WHICH GROUP<br />

EXERCISE CLASSES ARE BEST FOR ME?<br />

A: Any class that inspires you to<br />

regularly attend is the best class for<br />

you. Once you begin, your group fitness<br />

instructor will be a pro at helping you<br />

get through the most challenging of<br />

classes. Week by week you will improve<br />

and get stronger and the class that<br />

seemed impossible the first time you<br />

attended won’t seem so difficult after<br />

several weeks. A few things to consider<br />

when choosing what’s best for you:<br />

-Determine the time of day that will<br />

work best for your schedule.<br />

-Decide what specific benefits you want<br />

to achieve from your workouts. If you<br />

are unsure what benefits each type of<br />

class provides, reach out to the Group<br />

Exercise Director for guidance.<br />

-Don’t worry so much about whether<br />

the workout may not be your level<br />

because your level will improve<br />

in a short time. You do need to be<br />

challenged if you want to continually<br />

see fitness improvements.<br />

-Give yourself several weeks to try<br />

several class types, instructors and time<br />

slots.<br />

Five Local Breast Cancer Support Groups<br />

by JANET SCHERR<br />

Courage and strength triumph over adversity<br />

right here where we live. Breast cancer<br />

patients, survivors, and their families who<br />

have fought the disease have turned around to<br />

become founders, activists, and volunteers at these<br />

local breast cancer organizations.<br />

ALBIE AWARE<br />

Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation was created<br />

in 2004 by Doug Carson to honor his late wife, Albie.<br />

Tragically, Albie lost her battle with breast cancer and the<br />

foundation now aims to replace fear with facts. Since its<br />

founding, Albie Aware has provided assistance for diagnostic<br />

testing to thousands of women and men in the Sacramento<br />

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

Amanda C. Nelson, Executive Director of Albie Aware. “Our<br />

mission is to provide patient advocacy, prevention education,<br />

and compassionate support to local individuals facing or<br />

fighting breast cancer.”<br />

albieaware.org<br />

IMAGES OF HOPE (Serving <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> <strong>County</strong>)<br />

Glass art making, silk scarf painting, yoga practice, and<br />

equine therapy are just a few of the free classes offered<br />

by Images of Hope to those who have been impacted<br />

by cancer. Funded by the Marshall Foundation for<br />

Community Health, the activities provide a pleasurable respite<br />

from the stress that cancer patients and caregivers must deal<br />

with on a day-to-day basis. The classes are small and casual<br />

with local people from all walks of life. No prior experience<br />

in art or movement is required. Additionally, there is a breast<br />

cancer support group that meets monthly and most events<br />

are held at the Marshall Cancer Resource Center in Cameron<br />

Park. Images of Hope is also responsible for Pink in the Night<br />

during the month of <strong>October</strong> where downtown Placerville is<br />

illuminated with pink lights to symbolize the community’s<br />

united fight against cancer.<br />

SAVE OURSELVES<br />

When a group of young women came together to support one another during<br />

their breast cancer treatment, the collaboration turned into an extraordinary<br />

friendship. That peer support became the prototype for Save Ourselves (SOS) Breast<br />

Cancer Organization, founded in 1991 by those same, strong cancer survivors. Today,<br />

its members and volunteers speak to civic groups, professional organizations, schools,<br />

workplaces, health clubs, legislators, and community events about breast health<br />

awareness. SOS also offers a variety of educational forums and fundraising events.<br />

save-ourselves.org<br />

GIRLS LOVE MAIL<br />

Words can be compelling, especially if they<br />

are written by hand. Girls Love Mail collects<br />

handwritten–and often artistic–letters<br />

of encouragement and delivers them to<br />

women who have been newly diagnosed<br />

with breast cancer. “I founded the charity<br />

in August of 2011 after receiving over 200<br />

letters, mostly from strangers, that helped<br />

in my healing from breast cancer,” says Gina<br />

Mulligan, founder of Girls Love Mail. “It’s<br />

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

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

PLACER BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION<br />

Breast cancer survivors and South Placer <strong>County</strong> residents Carol Garcia and Teri<br />

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

million to endow a Breast Cancer Chair at the U.C. Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center.<br />

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

fight had just begun; and<br />

now, as the Placer Breast<br />

Cancer Foundation, our<br />

volunteer-based group still<br />

works tirelessly to raise<br />

funds to fight breast cancer<br />

and promote education<br />

throughout the Placer and<br />

Spotlight on<br />

Folsom VYBE<br />

by HEATHER L. NELSON<br />

Photo by Dante Fontana.<br />

What began as a small team challenge to positively impact others, has grown<br />

into a large-scale musical celebration benefitting the Folsom community and<br />

the Twin Lakes Food Bank. On <strong>October</strong> 17, VYBE will arise at the Harris Center<br />

featuring a concert, commemorative album, fine food, craft beer, local wine, and more.<br />

The volunteer VYBE team consisting of leader Josh Bollen and members Todd Speelman,<br />

Taryn Grows, Jamison Hiebert, Greg Fuson, Robyne Cortes, Sarah Brown, Lisa Tuter, Jon<br />

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

at large. “Whenever we create connection between people, we decrease division,” shares<br />

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

people of all different walks of life.”<br />

HLN: HOW DID YOU CREATE THE VYBE<br />

CONCEPT?<br />

JB: VYBE started as a challenge to staff at Lakeside<br />

Church to do something that would inspire and<br />

encourage our community, and so the original<br />

group of three or four people started dreaming<br />

about the project. We all love music and the idea of<br />

a Folsom area compilation album quickly jumped<br />

to the top of our list. Then someone mentioned the<br />

idea of an album release party and the idea for VYBE<br />

was formed. Knowing we had to assemble some key<br />

community influencers, we invited several more<br />

onto the team. The energy at that first meeting was<br />

electric!<br />

HLN: HOW ARE YOU COLLABORATING<br />

WITH TWIN LAKES FOOD BANK?<br />

JB: We knew there had to be more purpose than<br />

just music—we also needed to give back to our<br />

community. Twin Lakes has a mission to nourish<br />

lives in our community and that’s a mission we<br />

could all support. They do this by providing basic<br />

needs of nutritious food and social assistance—while<br />

VYBE [carries out a similar mission] through the<br />

inspiration of the arts. We hope that through this<br />

partnership, there will be hundreds, if not thousands,<br />

of lives made better because of the resources raised.<br />

HLN: CAN YOU SHARE MORE EVENT<br />

DETAILS?<br />

JB: The evening at Harris Center kicks off with a<br />

VIP dinner provided by longtime Folsom staple,<br />

Visconti’s. There will be vendors and sponsors<br />

outside and in the lobby including album sales,<br />

VYBE merchandise, and photo opportunities, with<br />

every single dollar in profit going directly to Twin<br />

Lakes. The concert will then be held in the main<br />

auditorium featuring 10 bands throughout the<br />

evening.<br />

HLN: IN WHAT WAYS DO YOU HOPE TO<br />

NOURISH THE WHOLE COMMUNITY?<br />

JB: When you buy your ticket to VYBE you are<br />

supporting not only the music and the arts, but also<br />

the food bank. While the music will be diverse, the<br />

purpose is unified. We hope this sentiment is shared<br />

throughout all aspects of the event and that the<br />

album will be a reminder of that unity. Even bigger,<br />

VYBE wants to display what our little community is<br />

capable of when we work together. It doesn’t take a<br />

large corporation or millions to make a difference in<br />

the world—all it takes is using the resources that you<br />

have and giving them to others.<br />

her to come home. She runs and<br />

he follows her into her dangerous<br />

never knew existed—just in order<br />

to save her.<br />

An Anonymous<br />

Girl<br />

by Greer Hendricks<br />

& Sarah Pekkanen<br />

Jessica Farris needs money and<br />

an opportunity seemingly falls<br />

into her lap. She signs up to be<br />

a test subject in a psychological<br />

study about ethics and morality.<br />

As the study progresses, Jessica<br />

starts to feel like the doctor in<br />

charge of the study knows what<br />

she’s thinking and feeling, and her<br />

actions are being manipulated in<br />

a deadly game that she needs to<br />

get out of.<br />

Reading doesn’t have to be a solitary<br />

experience especially when you<br />

can find book clubs almost<br />

anywhere nowadays. They’re one<br />

of the most popular forms of<br />

adult socialization. And, there are<br />

benefits to joining one. First of all,<br />

it may help push you to finish a<br />

book. It’s easy to find other things<br />

to do but if you know you have<br />

to read a book by a certain date,<br />

being in a book club will help<br />

you focus on reading. Reading<br />

can reduce stress, improve<br />

mental stimulation, and improve<br />

memory. It makes you more<br />

knowledgeable and can improve<br />

vocabulary. Joining a book club<br />

can also help you make friends.<br />

So, where do you find a book club?<br />

You can either start your own with<br />

a group of friends or find one that is<br />

already formed by checking your local<br />

library, local book stores, or searching<br />

Helping<br />

Hands<br />

Local Food Banks<br />

by JULIE RYAN<br />

According to the California Association of Food Banks,<br />

"1 in 8 Californian's struggles with food insecurity. Food<br />

insecurity is the occasional or constant lack of access<br />

to the food one needs for a healthy, active life."<br />

Food is vital for living and those who don’t get<br />

enough can suffer from physical and mental health problems. It can<br />

affect every aspect of their lives from school to work performance and<br />

home life. Hunger is not limited to certain people. Children, seniors,<br />

disabled, working poor, and people who are dealing with unexpected<br />

expenses can be affected. If you or someone you know is experiencing<br />

hunger, there is help.<br />

CALIFORNIA EMERGENCY FOODLINK, SACRAMENTO<br />

They are the largest food distribution agency in the Nation. Food goes<br />

The Perri family would like to take this opportunity to thank you<br />

for voting us the Best Italian Restaurant in <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> <strong>County</strong><br />

<strong>Foothills</strong>! We appreciate your support!<br />

Since 1991, Papa Gianni's has been serving authentic Italian cuisine<br />

using family recipes passed down through the generations. Our<br />

family-owned restaurant offers an extensive menu based on<br />

traditional dishes from Southern Italy. From homemade pasta<br />

such as ravioli and gnocchi alla vodka, to hearty meat dishes<br />

including pollo parmigiana and vitello piccata, each entrée is<br />

freshly prepared and made to order. Our carefully chosen wine<br />

list features local wines as well as traditional Italian favorites.<br />

Homemade desserts including tiramisu, cannoli and a variety of<br />

cheesecakes can turn an average night into a special occasion.<br />

We believe that family is the key ingredient when it comes to<br />

the success of our business. Together with our children and<br />

grandchildren, we look forward to serving those in Cameron Park<br />

and the surrounding area for years to come.<br />

The perfect destination for a quick weekday lunch, date night or a<br />

casual evening out with the kids-- there's something for everyone<br />

at Papa Gianni's!<br />

Buon Appettito,<br />

The Perri Family<br />

Accidents Happen!<br />

When it comes to driving on roadways, sometimes<br />

accidents are unavoidable, especially in harsh<br />

weather conditions like rain and snow. That’s when<br />

Stymeist Collision Centers has you covered.<br />

Bringing your vehicle back to manufacture specifications<br />

for appearance and safety is what Stymeist is all about.<br />

Their top notch employees undergo countless hours of<br />

training to stay ahead of the rapidly changing vehicle<br />

designs. Damaged cars are repaired to the highest<br />

standards using many of the same techniques the factory<br />

uses on the assemble line.<br />

While many insurance companies refer their clients<br />

to Stymeist, the employees never lose sight of who<br />

their customer is and that is “you” says owner<br />

Steve Stymeist. This is something that many body<br />

shops forget to acknowledge and while an insurance<br />

company may be paying for the repairs, it’s the owner<br />

of the car we are really serving. The vehicle owner will<br />

always be our true customer.<br />

Stymeist Collision Centers have been in business for<br />

over 30 years and they have multiple locations in<br />

Abusy kitchen tends<br />

one that is welcoming<br />

in making it a usable<br />

transformed their kitchen into the focus of the home.<br />

The homeowners were eager to upgrade because of the<br />

possibilities. “The chance to take a cramped, dysfunctional,<br />

and dark space and make it into an efficient, light, and airy<br />

environment that the whole family could enjoy [was exciting],”<br />

shares Jane Reed, co-owner of Brush Strokes Inc.<br />

New cabinets, countertops, floors, lighting, appliances, and<br />

windows were all on the docket for this remodel. Dated oak<br />

cabinets and tiled countertops were replaced with bright, white<br />

cabinets featuring soft-closing drawers and doors, and a gorgeous<br />

white ice granite countertop. Cabinet organizers and rollouts<br />

were also installed to maximize space. Plenty of storage and a<br />

large island were a priority. “They wanted lots of storage, a large<br />

island that could fit all their grandchildren, and plenty of space<br />

for entertaining,” says Reed. The oven was moved, and a desk area<br />

removed to make way for floor-to-ceiling cabinetry; the island<br />

remodeled with an overhang allowing counter-height seating for<br />

eager onlookers.<br />

A glass and stone mosaic tiled backsplash was added to create<br />

contrast between the upper and lower cabinets, as well as dark,<br />

wood-effect porcelain tile for the flooring to balance the nowbright<br />

space. The homeowners kept their refrigerator which<br />

inspired the black faucet and single bowl black sink that sits<br />

below the newly raised window. The kitchen was finished with<br />

new appliances (range, hood, dishwasher, and microwave) and<br />

downlights, and was totally transformed into a welcoming hub of<br />

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

homeowners are thrilled with their new kitchen,” shares Reed.<br />

Hotel Grande Bretagne The Greece I<br />

experienced on my late<br />

winter, off-season trip<br />

meant meeting locals<br />

who are proud of their<br />

heritage but remain<br />

humble, a slow-paced,<br />

enviable lifestyle that’s<br />

all too easy to adapt<br />

to, and landscapes<br />

that reach far beyond beaches. The postcard-perfect Mediterranean<br />

country—comprised of thousands of islands and often called the<br />

“cradle of Western civilization”—stole a piece of my heart and only<br />

a fraction of my money (prices are extremely fair when it comes to<br />

Europe) but left me longing to return.<br />

ATHENS<br />

Hip, historic, enterprising, energetic. Welcome to Greece’s storied<br />

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

home to just under one million people with a perfect mix of glam<br />

and grunge. Strolling through one of the myriad neighborhoods,<br />

expect to see sun-bleached ruins nestled next to modern<br />

infrastructure and a surplus of side streets splashed in mesmerizing<br />

murals.<br />

STAY<br />

For those who want to sleep in the lap of luxury:<br />

Hotel Grande Bretagne pulls out all the stops. Sited next to<br />

Syntagma Square smack dab in the city center, this five-star property<br />

built in 1842 boasts Old World opulence, state-of-the-art amenities,<br />

and plush décor that’ll make you feel like royalty. Breakfast on the<br />

rooftop garden is a meal worth waking up for—think fresh-squeezed<br />

juices, expertly crafted espresso drinks, and scratch-made Greek<br />

and Western fare.<br />

Dinner with the locals<br />

Avoid the tourist traps that try to lure you<br />

in with their faux food in glass-enclosed<br />

cases and go where the locals go. Vezene,<br />

a Greek-inspired, Michelin Plate bistro, is<br />

sited in a cozy, sophisticated setting, and<br />

dishes out family-style plates that may<br />

include aged beef tartare “pastistio” style;<br />

wood-fired pies with eclectic toppings<br />

like cherry-smoked baby lamb; and<br />

aged meats that melt in your mouth.<br />

For those who appreciate a good pun<br />

(and wholesome, high-quality comfort<br />

food), Nice n Easy is a must. From “The<br />

Paul Newman” (a Caesar salad with a<br />

Mediterranean twist) to “The Marvin Gaye”<br />

(minced buffalo meatballs with yogurt<br />

and mint) and “The Marlon Brando”<br />

(organic beef burger with cheddar,<br />

caramelized onions, coleslaw, and pickles<br />

on brioche), it’s a taste of Hollywood in<br />

one of Athen’s most high-end ‘hoods.<br />

NAFPLIO<br />

The stunning seaport village of Nafplio,<br />

the original capital of Greece and thought<br />

to be one of the country’s most romantic<br />

destinations, is located just under two<br />

hours from Athens on the Peloponnese<br />

peninsula and offers idyllic scenery with<br />

easy access to renowned ruins. Often<br />

dubbed the “Naples of the East,” expect a<br />

stunning coastline dotted with waterfront<br />

cafés, unforgettable fortresses (including<br />

Palamidi, which towers 999 steps above<br />

the city), and narrow, cobblestone-studded<br />

alleyways brimming with blooming<br />

bougainvillea.<br />

For an intimate boutique inn that<br />

exudes elegance:<br />

PARK & FLY<br />

If your flight departs from SFO,<br />

save yourself the headache and<br />

hassle of long-term airport parking<br />

by booking a stay at AC Hotel San<br />

Waterfront. In addition to bay views,<br />

modern architecture, and ample<br />

amenities (including an indoor pool),<br />

the property provides free parking<br />

picturesque port and promenade, and down the scenic side streets.<br />

“Seas” the day<br />

A trip to Greece really wouldn’t be complete with at least one island<br />

adventure. And though the majority of visitors will immediately flee<br />

to Mykonos or Santorini, a trip to the affluent island of Spetses—a<br />

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

Greek islands to raise the flag of Revolution on April 3, 1821), teeming<br />

with tavernas, and relatively untouched by tourists—is well worth<br />

the short drive and ferry ride.<br />

Step way back in time<br />

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

the country’s most popular and significant archaeological sites:<br />

Epidaurus—known for its ancient theatre that’s thought to represent<br />

the finest and best-preserved examples of a classical Greek theatre<br />

with exceptional acoustics—and Mycenae—a fortified, late Bronze<br />

Age citadel that was once the largest and most important center of<br />

civilization.<br />

Can you keep a secret? If I told you there is a<br />

place to get upscale New American cuisine<br />

with a French twist at one-half to one-third<br />

the price of, well, anywhere, could I trust you<br />

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

owners John and Lynette Evans of Brewhouse at Jackz<br />

like to hear.<br />

Chef and owner John’s considerable knowledge<br />

and skills showcase his menu, bringing locally-sourced,<br />

house-made delights from charcuterie and appetizers<br />

to entrées and desserts. I started with the crispy<br />

Brussels sprouts. It’s unfathomable that the repugnant<br />

miniature cabbage of my youth has been reformatted<br />

into a mouthful of savory deliciousness. Served with<br />

a trio of house-made sauces (mustard, ranch, and<br />

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

pulled pork terrine—a charcuterie presentation of<br />

roast pork that’s pulled, chopped, pressed into a terrine,<br />

refrigerated, sliced and served on a butcher block with<br />

bread, pickled cherries, and a mouth-watering red<br />

onion jam.<br />

During a conversation with Chef John, the topic<br />

turned to the exceptional measures his beef and pork<br />

vendors employ to bring the highest quality, humanely<br />

grown, and processed product to market. This includes<br />

the American Kobe (Wagyu) used in their burgers. From<br />

there we segued to the main entrée(s). First,<br />

beef cheeks that were slow-braised and served<br />

with port wine, and demi-glace reduction,<br />

and topped with pickled cherries, alongside a<br />

perfect swirl of mashed potatoes.<br />

I don’t eat many hamburgers—blasphemy,<br />

I know, in this day of the fried-egg-kimchiavocado-Spam-Bánh<br />

mi-vegetable-porkbelly-and-brisket<br />

pantheon of burgers, but<br />

they’re usually not up to the hype. So after<br />

our previous conversation I decided I’d give<br />

the Kobe “Hangtown” burger a try. Fairly<br />

straightforward, it came with thick-cut bacon,<br />

lettuce, cheddar, a little pickled jalapeño, and<br />

house-made pickle as the only accouterments.<br />

The flavor, juiciness, and texture of the Kobe<br />

beef, filled me with a renewed enthusiasm for<br />

the classic American creation.<br />

After nibbling for an eternity on a massive<br />

ice cream sandwich, I relented and asked for<br />

the check. Which, upon its arrival, left me with<br />

a distinct sense of reverse sticker shock.<br />

Brewhouse at Jackz “specializes in New<br />

American food and <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> craft beer and<br />

wine,” say owners Lynette and John. And remember,<br />

a secret is something you only tell your friends—and<br />

now I’m telling you.<br />

Sutter Station Sweets & Café // I found the cutest<br />

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

home as soon as you walk in. Once you take in the charming setting, you can focus<br />

on the enticing menu—breakfast and lunch paninis, scones, cinnamon rolls, and<br />

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

so yummy. I ordered the breakfast burrito which happens to be their most popular<br />

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

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

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<br />

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<br />

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

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,<br />

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