Style Magazine - April 2021

StyleMediaGroup

Before becoming a parent, I never truly valued or took full advantage of our region’s public parks. Sure, I visited them for the occasional picnic, jog, or game of tennis, and knew they brought natural beauty into neighborhoods, but never realized just how crucial they are to a community.
Now, as the mom to a tantrum-prone toddler, parks—playgrounds, in particular—are a daily destination for us. Give my daughter a sandbox, swing set, and an open field to frolic in, and her attitude instantly improves. In addition to providing hours of free, fresh-air amusement, they’ve also proven to be a primo place to meet fellow mom friends. (If you’ve never watched “Dear Cool-Looking Mom in the Park” on YouTube and feel like laughing, check it out. It pretty much sums up my attempt at having a social life these days.)
Lucky for us, our region is overflowing with parks (hundreds, in fact, with even more in the works) waiting to be explored. Turn to “Walk in the Park” on page 22 for 10 of our favorites—picked for their abundance of amenities, environmental components, stunning scenery, or all the above. Next time you find yourself in a funk, the solution might be as simple as going for a stroll in one of these gorgeous green spaces.
Readers looking for other outdoor diversions are in luck. There’s plenty more ideas in the pages that follow—from our feature, “Choose Your Own Adventure” (page 59) that’s jam-packed with alfresco activities like chasing waterfalls, nerding out on birds, and discovering local downtown districts; to “Nurture Nature” (page 26), where we talk about the importance of Earth Day and easy ways to lessen your environmental impact today, and every day; and “Home Grown” (page 44) featuring nine secrets to garden success this spring.
If you’ve never considered yourself “green” or “outdoorsy,” I hope this issue inspires you to think differently, act accordingly, and play outside whenever, however you can. Because, if you’re anything like me, even 10 minutes of fresh air will make a monumental difference in your day. Cheers!

| editor’s letter |

Before becoming a parent,

I never truly valued or

took full advantage of

our region’s public parks.

Sure, I visited them for

the occasional picnic,

jog, or game of tennis,

and knew they brought natural beauty into

neighborhoods, but never realized just how

crucial they are to a community.

Now, as the mom to a tantrum-prone toddler,

parks—playgrounds, in particular—are a daily

destination for us. Give my daughter a sandbox,

swing set, and an open field to frolic in, and

her attitude instantly improves. In addition to

providing hours of free, fresh-air amusement,

they’ve also proven to be a primo place to meet

fellow mom friends. (If you’ve never watched

“Dear Cool-Looking Mom in the Park” on

YouTube and feel like laughing, check it out. It

pretty much sums up my attempt at having a

social life these days.)

Lucky for us, our region is overflowing with parks (hundreds, in fact, with even more

in the works) waiting to be explored. Turn to “Walk in the Park” on page 22 for 10 of our

favorites—picked for their abundance of amenities, environmental components, stunning

scenery, or all the above. Next time you find yourself in a funk, the solution might be as

simple as going for a stroll in one of these gorgeous green spaces. A recent study published

in People and Nature found that spending time at parks boosts your mood as much as

Christmas morning. Talk about an easy, inexpensive way to feel merry and bright!

Readers looking for other outdoor diversions are in luck. There’s plenty more ideas

in the pages that follow—from our feature, “Choose Your Own Adventure” (page 59)

that’s jam-packed with alfresco activities like chasing waterfalls, nerding out on birds,

and discovering local downtown districts; to “Nurture Nature” (page 26), where we talk

about the importance of Earth Day and easy ways to lessen your

environmental impact today, and every day; and “Home Grown”

“Parks and

playgrounds

are the soul

of a city.”

—Marty Rubin

Shop Local...

Where it Matters.

(page 44) featuring nine secrets to garden success this spring.

Speaking of spring, turn to Editor’s Picks (page 38) for 14 musthaves

to welcome the season in style, including floral-print

apparel, locally made honey, and a wine country tote that holds

all the necessities for a perfect picnic (i.e., not one but two bottles

of vino). After purchasing the items at local mom-and-pop shops,

you’ll be ready to soak up all the fun and sun this month.

If you’ve never considered yourself “green” or “outdoorsy,” I

hope this issue inspires you to think differently, act accordingly,

and play outside whenever, however you can. Because, if you’re

anything like me, even 10 minutes of fresh air will make a monumental difference in your

day. Cheers!

What was

your first

job?

“A summer-long landscaping gig

for a family friend, preparing

his backyard to be a wedding

venue. I did it all—fence

construction, deck demolition,

and everything in between.”

—Ray Burgess

“Other than babysitting, my first

job was wrapping gifts in high

school during the holidays. I

was horrible at it then, and

I'm horrible at it now. I've

learned to invest in a lot of gift

bags and tissue paper. Problem

solved!”—Debra Linn

“My first job was in landscaping.

I’ve always loved the outdoors,

so this was a great start and

taught me the value of hard

work.”—Ryan Martinez

GENERAL DERMATOLOGY

“At age 16, I worked as a baker

at Paradise Bakery. It sure

was delicious but got me into

trouble with my waistline!”

—JoAnn DeLise

“My friend's mom owned Lake

Forest Café, and I used to help

as a busser every once in

a while. My first steady job,

however, was at the Sonoma

State bookstore while I was in

college.”—Emily Peter-Corey

“My first job was at a dilapidated

dog kennel in Pinole Valley. The

owner was a hoarder and

eccentric college English

professor. I came home every

day with mud, dog poop, and

straw on my boots and pants. I

was 14 and felt so sorry for those

dogs!”—Lorn Randall

“I taught creative writing and

English comprehension to

6th and 7th graders at an

after-school center. It was a

memorable experience, and I

still miss those kids!”

#What’sUp?

by MEGAN WISKUS

Congrats to the City of Placerville for

being awarded second place for their

National Night Out 2020 campaign.

The 37th annual event—which enhances

the relationship between neighbors and

law enforcement while bringing back a

true sense of community—involved over

16,000 communities across the U.S. For

this year’s celebration, a small portion

of the street between Sourdough & Co.

and the Bell Tower was sectioned off

for socially distanced street dining and

meal deals at participating restaurants,

including Amore Mio, Placerville Public

House, and Powell’s Steamer Co. & Pub.

Those interested in helping to plan this

year’s NNO can reach out to the Placerville

Police Department at 530-642-5210.

Congrats to the Folsom Telegraph

on their 165th anniversary! The oldest

newspaper in Sacramento County, and

the fourth oldest weekly publication in

California, it has grown from being a

four-page paper (known as The Granite

Journal) published in a Historic Folsom

basement to being the primary source

of trusted, reliable community news.

There’s a new nonprofit in town! Placer

Business Alliance (placerbusiness.

com), which is dedicated to preserving

and enhancing Placer County’s business

climate through direct engagement with

local and regional leaders, has been

established to help further economic

development in the region. To see

how your business can benefit, email

info@placerbusinessalliance.com.

Folsom residents planning a

landscaping project this spring

supplies last) at the following

City Hall (50 Natoma Street;

look for the cell tower behind

the rear parking lot), Dan Russell Rodeo

Arena (northern end of Stafford Street),

and Fire Station 36 (next to the sandbag

location on Oak Avenue Parkway).

5 Top Teens

BY TARA MENDANHA

Despite the challenges and adversities of the past year, our students

have still managed to come out on top. Here are some of the region's

best and brightest minds.

VISTA DEL LAGO HIGH SCHOOL

homas has already made great strides in his 17 years. An

active member of the California Scholarship Federation and

Key Club, he’s been a student senator and National Honor

Society inductee for the last three years. He’s also adept at the

clarinet and has earned his music varsity letter.

Eagar to share his time and talents, Thomas is a peer tutor

on STEM subjects and helps second graders with reading and

comprehension skills. He also happens to be a big basketball fan,

having co-founded his school’s basketball club and worked as a

Folsom Youth Basketball Association official. “I thrive to have a

balanced lifestyle, keeping fit by eating right, playing basketball,

working out, hanging out, and playing video games with my

friends,” says the well-rounded teen.

After earning a perfect composite score of 36 on his first try

of the ACT, Thomas will be dual graduating this year with a high

school diploma and associate degree in interdisciplinary studies

in math and science from Folsom Lake College. “I’m proud of

these accomplishments because I worked really hard, and it

proved to me that hard work does pay off…I plan to earn my

bachelor’s degree in the STEM field,” he says.

Thomas’ biggest aspiration is to give back to the community.

Realizing the importance of people in his life, he is constantly

inspired by his grandparents and looks up to his godfather, Tony,

who supports all his endeavors. “The pandemic has given me a

new perspective on life and taught me to take advantage of the

time that we have with friends and family.”

Jacob Maximus No

JESUIT HIGH SCHOOL

Kriti Vasudevan

16

GRANITE BAY HIGH SCHOOL

A

sk Jacob how he would describe himself and you get an

honest yet endearing answer: “oddly mature but still loves to

have fun!” This grown-up teen is passionate about helping

homeless veterans and uses his position as youth president of

Sacramento Stand Down (sacramentostanddown.org)—a nonprofit

that works to get homeless veterans off the street, providing

adequate health care, shelter, employment, and more—to build

awareness and garner support among his peers to the plight of

veterans today. “It’s very satisfying when I can make a positive

difference in another person's life,” he says.

When he’s not out championing this cause, Jacob spends his

time playing basketball, video gaming, and between numerous

clubs—Asian Pacific, Mathletes, and Theoretical Astrophysics, to

name a few. A member of the Boy Scouts of America, he’s also

earned Eagle Scout status—something he’s very proud of.

Jacob strives to be like his father, who has a strong work

ethic and unique approach to life. A member of the National

Honor Society and California Scholarship Federation, Jacob will

be attending Emory University next year—his first time living

outside California. “I'm looking forward to living in the South,” he

says excitedly, ready to face any adventure head-on. “One thing

the pandemic taught me is that everyone deals with fear in a

different way. I would like to make sure that I approach things

with an open mind.”

FAVORITES

ESCAPE: I'm a foodie.

GUILTY PLEASURE: Video games.

MEAL IN TOWN: Orange chicken at Panda Express.

LOCAL LANDMARK: Folsom Lake.

MOVIE: The entire Bourne series.

MUSICIAN/BAND: Luke Combs (thanks to my brother).

BOOK: Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game by Michael Lewis.

SAYING: "Do a Good Turn Daily"—Boy Scout slogan.

K

riti has as many accomplishments as she has interests.

Her love for speech, debate, advocacy, and volunteerism

has translated into many worthy undertakings, and she’s

determined to make her voice be heard in everything she does.

Her most recent vocation has been her podcast, “Spill the

KriTEA” (available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts), where she

discusses societal issues and personal passions for an audience

of her peers. Topics include the Black Lives Matter movement,

skincare, and literacy, and she’s reached listeners in far-flung

places like Morocco, France, and Nigeria. Kriti also spends her

time studying skincare and shares her experiences and tips on

her blog, Let’s Detox About It.

Another way she uses her voice is at Cognitive Exchange, a local

student-run nonprofit that aims to teach speech and debate to

students in impoverished places across the world to “uplift human

potential and provide students with the power of democratic

thinking.” Her group’s efforts have resulted in over 4,500 graduates,

expanding to schools in Africa and South America. “I’ve had the

privilege to collaborate with CEOs and school administrators, but

also meet so many compassionate individuals working to uplift their

own communities,” she says, adding, “in the future, I definitely hope

to travel more and work with more nonprofits—hopefully volunteer

with the Peace Corps in Africa for a few years after college.”

Life is one big, beautiful adventure to Kriti and there doesn’t

seem to be an end in sight. “We only have one life, so working

hard, doing my best, and taking risks motivates me!”

FAVORITES

ESCAPE: Music.

GUILTY PLEASURE: Eating tubs of ice cream.

MEAL IN TOWN: Thai Paradise.

LOCAL LANDMARK: World Peace Rose Garden.

MOVIE: I prefer TV shows so Friends and Brooklyn Nine-Nine among others.

MUSICIAN/BAND: Ariana Grande and Zayn Malik.

BOOK: Harry Potter series.

Laine Weber

18

GRANITE BAY HIGH SCHOOL

Kylie Cox

17

PONDEROSA HIGH SCHOOL

L

aine is a champion lacrosse player but that isn’t the only

thing she’s good at. “Not many people know about my high

GPA,” she says. “Most people look at athletes and assume we don’t

put a ton of effort into academics when that is not true.” After all, if

it weren’t for her sport and academic accomplishments, she might

not have gotten into the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

Laine's love of lacrosse began in the third grade when the

Granite Bay High School girls' lacrosse team conducted a clinic

during PE. "I rushed home with a flyer and told my mom that

I wanted to play lacrosse," she recalls. She's played nonstop

ever since and has even won the Sacramento Valley Lacrosse

Championship with her team.

Laine was 15 when she met the U.S. Coast Guard women’s

lacrosse head coach at a showcase. Her grandma encouraged

her interest in the career and Laine applied to their “Cadet for

a Day” program where she got to shadow a lacrosse player and

experience cadet life. From then on, Laine knew this was what

she wanted to do. “I’m often questioned about my decision to

pursue a military career, because it’s a very unconventional path

for someone from my background,” she says, owing much of her

confidence to her supportive parents.

Off-field, Laine likes to watch The Office and participate at her

church. And she’s counting down the days till she leaves for the

Academy. “I'm excited to receive an excellent education and give

back to the country and communities I love.”

FAVORITES

ESCAPE: Any place outside enjoying nature and my dogs.

GUILTY PLEASURE: In-N-Out Burger.

MEAL IN TOWN: Hazumi Sushi Bar.

LOCAL LANDMARK: 5% Beach at Folsom Lake.

MOVIE: Happy Gilmore.

MUSICIAN/BAND: J. Cole.

BOOK: Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult.

SAYING: "You have to do what others will not to get ahead."

K

ylie loves all the regular teen stuff—reading, hanging out

with friends, watching movies…then there’s the other side to

her—the one that excels in sports and school. An active member

of the California Scholarship Federation, she’s president of the

Key Club, has won over 20 local beach volleyball tournaments

over the last year, and plays piano. Despite having a full plate,

Kylie has also volunteered at the Cameron Park Library and The

Bookhouse in Cameron Park, accumulating 200 community

service hours in four years—all while raking up a 4.47 GPA. With

such outstanding achievements, it’s no wonder that this

valedictorian was recently named “Student Service Leader of the

Month” by the Kiwanis Club of Placerville.

Kylie’s keen on becoming a neurologist to treat people

with brain disorders and research cures for neurodegenerative

diseases. “I’ve been following the news every day during the

pandemic, and it’s been eye-opening to see how the medical

world is reacting to COVID-19,” she says. The pandemic also

taught her to step out of her comfort zone. “I was a very ‘safe’

person, [sticking] to what I knew would be successful in the end.

However, I’ve lost so many opportunities due to quarantine and

realized that I can’t take things for granted anymore; I should take

risks and make the most of every opportunity,” she says.

Looks like opportunity’s come knocking, for Kylie’s been

offered a full-ride scholarship to the University of Alabama and

has also been accepted to Notre Dame. “I know that if I put in the

effort, I will be rewarded later by my success.”

FAVORITES

ESCAPE: Running while listening to music.

GUILTY PLEASURE: Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

MEAL IN TOWN: Nekter Juice Bar’s acai bowls.

LOCAL LANDMARK: Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort.

MOVIE: The Princess Bride.

MUSICIAN: Tame Impala.

BOOK: Circe by Madeline Miller.

SAYING: “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”—Albert Einstein.

Nurture Nature

Celebrate Earth Day

by EMILY PETER-COREY

Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22, but it’s much more than a one-day event; it

encourages a mindset that should last year-round. It can be overwhelming to learn about our

harm on the environment and change habits, but an easy place to start is with the ethos of

reduce, reuse, recycle.

The first Earth Day was created in 1970 by Senator

Gaylord Nelson to force Congress to address

the environmental issues Earth was facing.

Twenty million Americans participated in the

first celebration by taking a stand against environmental

ignorance and demanding change for our planet. By

December of 1970, Congress authorized a new federal agency,

the United States Environmental Protection Agency, aimed to

address environmental issues. Over the past 51 years, since

the first Earth Day, environmental changes include planting

hundreds of millions of trees, providing environmental

education cleaning up plastic pollution, and much more. Join

over one billion participants and take action this Earth Day.

There are countless ways to reduce environmental

harm in your everyday life. From reducing plastic use

and meat consumption to picking up trash on walks

and requesting paperless billing, small steps made by

everyone can create a huge impact on our planet.

Eco-Friendly Tips

• Reduce paper towel consumption

by using kitchen towels and

washcloths to clean up messes.

• Trade plastic baggies for reusable

silicone ones or beeswax wraps.

• Avoid single-use products and invest

in reusable ones: totes, straws, water

bottles, food storage containers.

• Reduce food waste by having an

“Eat Me First” food bin front and

center, and freeze what you can

before it goes bad for future use.

• Turn off lights when you leave a room.

• Take shorter showers. And keep

a bucket in the shower to collect

water while it warms up; use

that to water your plants.

• Create your own all-purpose cleaner

be soaking citrus peels in vinegar.

• Line-dry your clothes.

• DIY confetti by hole-punching leaves.

• Follow @wastefreesac on Instagram

for localized tips on where and how

to recycle, eco-friendly services,

sustainable shopping, and more.

• Plant a tree! Visit the Sacramento Tree

Foundation (sactree.com) for tips.

• Opening this spring, Village General

Store in Roseville will offer a BYO

container refillery (you can also

purchase containers at the shop)

for household staples like spices,

pasta, beans, and cooking oils, plus

bath and body essentials, cleaning

products, pet care, and more.

• Recycle this magazine or use

it for craft projects. Scour

Pinterest for ideas!

• Buy local food to reduce the distance

from farm to fork. (Better yet, plant

your own garden and share the

crop with your neighbors!) A few

local farmers’ markets include…

HISTORIC FOLSOM FARMERS’

MARKET, 915 Sutter Street, Folsom,

historicfolsom.org/farmers-market;

Ways To Celebrate

The FORGOTTEN SOLIDER PROGRAM

is hosting EARTH DAY 2021 on April 17

from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in Downtown Auburn.

Join them for a street fair featuring

performances, raffles, food trucks, and

more. forgottensoldierprogram.com

As this issue went to print, the

ENVIRONMENTAL COUNCIL OF

SACRAMENTO was still in the

planning process of their annual

SACRAMENTO EARTH DAY event.

Visit their website and Facebook

page for updates. ecosacramento.net;

facebook.com/sacramentoearthday

COVID-19 has continued to pause

in-person events, so create your own

celebration at home! Start with making

your coffee from the comfort of your

kitchen or asking your favorite local

café to use your own reusable mug.

If possible, bike or walk to work and

reduce car pollution throughout the

day. Prepare plant-based meals and

utilize your reusable water bottle. Take

a walk to simply enjoy what Mother

Nature has to offer…and pick up some

trash along the way if you can. Lastly,

research and invest in more ways to

create an eco-friendlier footprint and

help the environment. In no time, this

“celebration” will become second nature

and our planet will thank you for it.

Let us know how you plan to help the

environment! Email info@stylemg.com.

Parenting in a

Pandemic

9 Tips to Help Kids Cope BY MEGAN WISKUS

As parents, the coronavirus has thrown us,

and our kiddos, a complete curveball—bringing

up all sorts of emotions and wreaking havoc

on our mental health. Luckily, there are ways

to help little ones cope while keeping your

own cool, too. Here are some tips to help

guide families through these uncertain times.

1 Keep calm. Children don't

always have the words to express

what’s going on with them. When they

get upset, it’s tempting to get distraught

as well, but what they need most is for

us to help calm them down. Talk about

what they might be thinking and

feeling, then help them label the

emotion. Offer validation and empathy

and teach them what to do with their

emotions. Often when it's named and

heard, it will diminish rather quickly.—

Take care of you. Apologize if

you need to and maintain good

self-care. Remember: You’re a model for

your children, and they look to you on

how to handle things. If you continue to

take care of yourself, you’ll be a more

positive parent, have energy, and be more

patient with your children. It's important

to have the strength to continue to set

boundaries and provide structure for

your family. As the airlines say, "Put your

own mask on before attempting to help

your children."—Nancy Ryan, MA, LMFT,

CEO, therelationshiptherapycenter.com

8

Have fun as a family. Many of

the ways we normally play with our

kids aren’t on the table right now, but

they haven’t stopped having fun. This is

the time to get into that Roblox game or

other activity that your little one won't

stop talking about. Follow their lead and

see where it goes.—Lauren Simas, MA,

LMFT, brillacounseling.com

2

Dream big. Make a bucket list as

a family of the places you want to

visit, things you want to do, and foods

you want to eat when the world opens

back up. Get specific about details and

put it down on paper. Break out the

crayons, art supplies, or whatever you

have on hand. Keep your list on the fridge

to keep the dream alive.—Lauren Simas,

MA, LMFT, brillacounseling.com

3

Remember that this too

shall pass. Adjust your

expectations of yourself and your

children in terms of productivity,

patience, and poise. This pandemic is

wreaking havoc on our kids’ sense of

their place in the world—remind them

that this is temporary.—Janette Robinson,

MA, LMFT, janetterobinsonmft.com

4

Movement matters. It’s hard

enough for adults to sit on Zoom for

hours at a time, let alone children who

are used to activity and in-person

classroom interaction. Encourage your

kiddos to move and stretch between

online activities, so they can sit again and

focus. If you can make something a

game, they’re much more willing to

comply. For example, how many times

can they run up and down the stairs in

one minute?—Nancy Ryan, MA, LMFT,

CEO, therelationshiptherapycenter.com

5

Make new memories. Kids

have missed out on so many crucial

milestones over the past year, but just

because crowd sizes are capped doesn't

mean you can’t celebrate big. Find

creative ways to make things special, like

throwing a superhero birthday party just

for your household.—Lauren Simas, MA,

LMFT, brillacounseling.com

6

Keep things predictable. Set

and maintain daily and weekly

schedules as much as possible, focusing

on rhythm when feasible instead of strict

timetables (to keep stress in check).—

Janette Robinson, MA, LMFT,

janetterobinsonmft.com

9

Stay social. Connecting with

others and having fun are highly

effective ways of decreasing sadness and

anxiety, which for many kids (and adults)

can be amplified during this extended

period of isolation. Carve out time for

outdoor play, family board games,

regular calls with relatives and friends,

socially distanced playdates, and even

online video games to keep little ones

linked to family members and the larger

world.—Janette Robinson, MA, LMFT,

janetterobinsonmft.com

Take a Hike

Stevens

Trail

by RYAN MARTINEZ

LOCATED IN: Colfax.

DISTANCE: 7.7 miles out-and-back.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Moderate.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: This is a

long trail with little shade, so bring

plenty of water. Expect rocky and

wet conditions with a super steep

finish; not recommended for kids. Make

sure you don’t leave valuables in the car, as there

have been some reports of break-ins.

FUEL UP: Enjoy classic American comfort food

(think burgers, scrambles, melts, and more), hot

coffee, cocktails, mimosas, or all of the above

at Dine n Dash Pub & Grill

(dinendashpubandgrill.com).

With an inviting ambiance, superb

service, and hearty grub, you’ll be

ready for a day of adventure.

WHY WE LOVE IT: This trail has

beautiful views, waterfalls, and a rich

history. Long with a strenuous finish, it’s a

perfect spring hike and will help prepare you for

longer summer treks.

TRAIL NOTES: Bring shoes with traction. Dog-friendly,

but they must be leashed. Practice Leave No Trace

ethics and enjoy the views!

BEST PRACTICES:

BEFORE & AFTER

What you do both before

and after your hike is

the difference between

a positive experience

versus asking yourself,

“Why did I think this

would be fun?”.

Here are a few

considerations:

BEFORE YOUR HIKE

Nourish your body. Good

nutrition is key; proper

hydration is paramount.

Hydrate early and often.

Choose the right clothing. Bring

enough layers, plan for weather,

and choose the right shoes.

Let someone know where

you’re going. Being lost on a

trail is never fun; being lost,

cold, hungry, and scared

because no one knows

where you are is even worse.

AFTER YOUR HIKE

Stretch. Do some light yoga

or some simple stretches to

help you recover and improve

mobility.

Eat right. Eat protein soon

after your hike to help rebuild

muscles and speed up recovery.

Learn from your experience.

Things don’t always go

according to plan; see where

you can improve for next time.

Q: CAN I LEARN TO DANCE IF I

DON'T HAVE A PARTNER?

A: Absolutely! When you come into a

studio on your own, the teacher is able

to focus solely on you and you’re able

to get an immediate feel for the proper

form and technique of the dance; plus,

the cues from an instructor are super

clear, making it easy to lead or follow.

Ultimately, you’re able to learn a lot faster

working one-on-one with a teacher. So,

whether you have a partner or not, your

feet are in good hands!

Q: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF

SHOPPING CONSIGNMENT?

A: Consignment shopping is perfect for

those who want high-quality, budgetfriendly

items in an easy-to-navigate

space. It’s also perfect if you like a variety

of styles but don’t have tons of time to go

shopping, since you’ll find all the brands

at malls, boutiques, and high-end stores

in one place. I must admit, it will ruin you

for shopping retail, because you’ll get used

to paying much less for great stuff! What’s

more, the environment greatly benefits

when items are reused and consumers

don't buy brand new clothing and/or

accessories.

Handy Gardening Hacks

by MEGAN WISKUS

Nothing beats the taste of fresh-fromthe-vine

tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, and

pungent peppers…especially when you pick the produce from your very own backyard.

Luckily, gardening is a skill that all ages, and abilities, can master. Follow these tips and

tricks—courtesy of Green Acres Nursery & Supply, Soil Born Farms, El Dorado Nursery, and

High Hand Nursery—and you’ll be diving into a fresh summer salad in mere months.

RAISE IT UP. Raised beds are an

ideal option for growing edible

plants. They offer convenience

and comfort—you can tend to

your garden with less bending

over or sitting on the ground—

and allow for more control

over the soil and amendments.

What’s more, soil in a raised

bed is typically warmer earlier

in the season, which will give

you a jump-start on your

summer garden.

VERY VERTICAL. Make the most

of your vertical space by

incorporating vining veggies—

cucumbers, beans, and even

cantaloupes—that can be

trained on a trellis.

On April 20, Soil

Born Farms is offering a

virtual “Ask a Farmer: Growing

Tomatoes” class from 7-8:30 p.m.

Beginner and seasoned gardeners alike

will benefit by learning tricks of the trade

to create and maintain a thriving harvest,

followed by a Q&A session.

BE WATER WISE. How often and how

much you water depends on the climate,

soil, and your garden’s sun exposure.

Vegetable plants want consistently moist

(not soggy) soil, so water low and slow.

Test your method, then stick with it,

increasing as the weather warms.

FROM THE GROUND UP. As you prepare

your garden, remember to take care

of the soil. Adding a good quality

compost mixed with G&B Organics

Planting Mix or using worm castings

(an organic form of fertilizer produced

from earthworms) will add nutrition,

refresh tired soil, and make a world of

difference in your harvest.

SEEDS HAVE NEEDS. If you start your

garden from seeds, be sure to space

them based upon how big the plant will

get and at the right depth (just below the

surface for small seeds and 1-1.5 inches

below soil surface for medium to large

seeds). Don't overcrowd them or your

adult plants will be unhealthy.

MULCH MATTERS. Your stone fruit trees

may be dormant now, but soon enough

they’ll be pushing buds and preparing

to fruit. Give them what they need now

with a good helping of compost around

the base of the tree and a layer of mulch

to retain moisture as the weather warms

up. Hint: Be sure to keep mulch at least

two inches away from the tree trunk to

protect it from mold and disease.

BORAGE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND. The bright

blue flowers of borage (an edible, fastgrowing,

and attractive annual herb)

discourage tomato hornworms and

other damaging insects while bringing

in bees and additional pollinators—

making it both a deterrent and

attractant. Plant it in between tomato

plants, as well as squash, cucumbers, and

other flowering, fruiting plants.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING. Though warmseason

veggies are available now, you

should wait until the soil warms to 55ºF

to plant them—normally mid-April to the

beginning of May. If the soil is too cold to

sit on comfortably bare-cheeked, it’s too

cold for your plants.

PUT DOWN ROOTS. If your tomato plants are

leggy or floppy, remove the lower leaves

and plant them deeper. They’ll push roots

from the stem, which makes for a strong,

bushy plant.

30 + Outdoor Escapes

By Nelly Kislyanka & Tara Mendanha

We live in an outdoor paradise. Lakes, mountains, rivers, and wonderful weather means

every alfresco activity—from birdwatching to hiking, biking, and hot air ballooning—is

within reach. This spring, soak in some fresh air and explore more.

WINE & DINE

Wineries are taking outdoor dining to grand new heights,

with breathtaking views, fantastic pours, and indulgent

bites. Check out Lincoln’s Wise Villa Winery (wisevillawinery.

com)—the only winery in Placer County with a full-service

Tuscan-style bistro—and dig into flatbread or filet mignon

while basking in gorgeous sunsets and views of rolling hills.

Chateau Davell Boutique Winery (chateaudavell.com) in

Camino currently offers a charcuterie box to pair with their

wines while you sit out on the terrace. One of the newer

wineries on the block is Myka Cellars (mykacellars.com),

which—in addition to sustainable, craft wine—also serves a

mouthwatering menu full of sandwiches, salads, and more

(all made with locally grown ingredients from nearby farms).

GO FOR GOLD

It’s never too late to get in on the Gold Rush action. Go back to where it all began at Marshall Gold

Discovery State Historic Park (marshallgold.com) in Coloma. Sift through the same sands as the fortyniners

while basking in the history and the beauty of the area. Gold Bug Park & Mine (goldbugpark.org)

in Placerville allows for gem panning (when open) and while it’s not technically outdoors, the mine is a

treat to explore. Take it up a notch and plan a

panning vacation at Bear River Campground

(placer.ca.gov/5951/bear-river-campground) in

Colfax where there’s more gold to be found.

SHOOT FOR THE STARS

Warmer weather and clearer skies make for

perfect conditions to spot constellations

and crescents. Join the Sacramento Valley

Astronomical Society (svas.org) in Roseville

for monthly star parties (once they resume) or

check out their calendar for nightly sightings.

Then, head to Salmon Falls Bridge in El Dorado

Hills or Foresthill Bridge in Auburn for some

stellar views. The Community Observatory

in Placerville (communityobservatory.com) is

also a great place to study the night sky on

weekends. Catch a glimpse of major stars,

planets, galaxies, nebulae, and the moon

with heavy-duty telescopes during their

“star tours.” You can also join them for “Solar

Saturday” to sneak a close and safe peak at

our closest star.

OH SNAP!

While you’re out and about how about trying

your hand at some outdoor photography?

Whether you’re capturing the sunset or

having an impromptu shoot for your kids or

canine, pick up some equipment at Action

Camera (actioncamera.com) in Roseville and

head to any of the numerous jaunts local

photographers love: Miners Ravine Trail in

Roseville (well-maintained path that passes

by several parks and features a stream,

woodlands, large boulders), Johnny Cash

Trail in Folsom (especially the bridge), Willow

Creek Recreation Area in Folsom (many paths

and trees, a little bridge, island of rocks, tree

logs, boat dock), Beal’s Point at Folsom Lake

(fantastic sunset lighting, sandy hills, views of

the lake), Salmon Falls Bridge in El Dorado Hills

(flower fields, bridges, streams, hills, rocks),

or Negro Bar in Folsom (boat dock, views

of the iconic Rainbow Bridge, cliffs in the

background).

GO WILD...AT THE ZOO!

What is the great outdoors without some

animal action? Meet and greet with local

animal celebrities at the Folsom Zoo between

10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Friday through Sunday.

Admission requires advance online ticket

purchase (none sold at the gate) and can

be purchased at webtrac.folsom.ca.us. Find

an assortment of reptiles, felines, canines,

birds, primates, and more. If you’d like the zoo

to come to you, Hawks Ranch Petting Zoo

(hawksranchpettingzoo.com) in Loomis has a

mobile petting zoo, filled with goats, miniature

horses, alpacas, chickens, ducks, rabbits, and

even a miniature pig and donkey!

GO FISH

Did you know Folsom Lake has produced trophy-sized bass over

10 pounds? Or that it also holds rainbow trout, catfish, kokanee

salmon, and bluegill? Try your luck and get in on the angler action

at New York Creek, Deep Ravine Cove, Folsom Point, or Beal’s

Point. An accessible fishing pier is also available on Lake Natoma

at the Nimbus Flat park entrance, or you can check out “From

the Depths” (fromthedepthsfishing.com) a local club that’s open

to the public. But before you get hooked, don’t forget to obtain a

California Fishing License at wildlife.ca.gov/fishing.

PICNIC IN THE PARK

Johnson-Springview Park

The easiest and most fun thing to do outside is have a picnic.

Luckily, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to perfect picnic

spots. Choose from Promontory Park in El Dorado Hills (covered

play and picnic area, plus water features), Livermore Community

Park in Folsom (covered picnic area, BBQ pits, baseball diamond,

water features), Kalithea Park in El Dorado Hills (views of the lake

and mountains, covered picnic area, baseball diamond), Folsom

Kids Play Park (shady trees, covered picnic area, separate play

areas for older and younger kids, castle-like play structure), Maidu

Regional Park in Roseville (ample fields, picnic space, access to the

Maidu Museum and Library), Johnson-Springview Park in Rocklin

(shaded picnic areas, BBQ pits), Royer Park in Roseville (ample

picnic space, parks for older and younger kids, creek nearby,

courts, horseshoe pit), Lions Park in Placerville (covered picnic

areas, BBQ pit, sport courts, parks for older and younger kids, disc

golf course) or Whitney Park in Rocklin (grassy areas, water feature,

play areas for older and younger kids, covered BBQ).

WALK THE “ MAIN ” STREETS

A stroll through our historic downtowns is a nice way to

spend the day. Placerville’s Historic Main Street brings

the Gold Rush charm with its antique shops, used

bookstore, candy shop, and the oldest hardware store

West of the Mississippi. The Folsom Historic District

is home to the public plaza and amphitheater, history

museum, and Sutter Street Theatre, aside from boutique

stores, stylish salons, art galleries, and some great

restaurants offering outdoor dining. Downtown Roseville’s

charming Vernon Street is a must-see destination. Its

town square is great for picnicking and the street itself

now has decking built on the sidewalks to accommodate

outdoor dining. Take a walk past the World War II

memorial, telephone museum, steam engine no. 2252

monument, and Mini Mural Competition.

CHASE WATERFALLS

Waterfalls abound this time of the year. With overgrown

flora and gushing fresh waters, these falls also boast

beautiful trails: Sly Park waterfall in Pollock Pines is 33

feet high at the northeast part of Jenkinson Lake; Hidden

Falls Regional Park in Auburn has a 30-foot waterfall and

over 30 miles of trails; Dutch Creek Falls in Garden Valley

has a rugged path to scenic twin waterfalls; Black Hole

of Calcutta Falls in Auburn is a 40-foot fall at the end of

an easy, quick hike over a wooden footbridge; and Bridal

Veil Falls in Pollock Pines is an 80-foot seasonal, drive-to

beauty off Highway 50.

Boarding on the Lake

HORSE AROUND

Explore the outdoors on the backs of these gentle creatures

and see the world from a whole new perspective. Boarding

on the Lake (boardingonthelake.com) in Granite Bay offers

rides along Folsom Lake trails, through wooded forests

and along the beach, while Shadow Glen Riding Stables

(shadowglenstables.com) in Fair Oaks offers western trail

rides along the American River at Lake Natoma.

EAT YOUR VEGGIES

The best part about living in one of the nation’s top

agricultural-producing states? A farmers’ market is at

your fingertips just about every day of the

week. Spend a crisp Saturday morning

strolling through the 70+ vendor booths

at the Historic Folsom

Farmers Market

(bemoneysmartusa.

org/historicfolsom),

pick up a bouquet of

fresh blooms at one

of the PlacerGROWN

farmers’ markets

(placergrown.org) in

Auburn or Roseville, or

grab just-picked produce

at one of El Dorado County’s

myriad markets starting in June

PlacerGROWN (eldoradofarmersmarket.com).

ROW YOUR BOAT

Are the rivers and lakes calling your name? Whether it’s a relaxing

kayak trip or an adrenaline-filled rafting trip, these places have you

covered for all your gear. American River Raft Rentals (raftrentals.

com) allows for self-guided raft trips on the lower American River.

Rent 4-12 person rafts, paddleboards, and 1-2 person kayaks.

Adventure Sports Rentals (adventuresports.rentals) offers regular

and pedal kayaks and stand-up paddleboards to use at Lake

Natoma. Sac State Aquatic Center (sacstateaquaticcenter.com)

offers kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes for a serene trip on Lake

Natoma. Rafting at the South Fork of the American River starts

this month and goes until September. Visit coloma.com/recreation/

whitewater-rafting for a list of outfitters.

American River Parkway

Nerd Out On Birds

Over 350 bird species follow the Pacific Flyway from Bering Strait to

South America, flying over California State Parks along the way, and

spring migration brings more than a billion birds back into California.

Folsom Lake, Lake Natoma, anywhere along the American River

Parkway, Cosumnes River Preserve, Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, Bass

Lake Regional Park, and Effie Yeaw Nature Center house some of

nature’s winged wonders—from different types of sapsuckers and

woodpeckers to turkey vultures and owls. The El Dorado Audubon

(eldoradoaudubon.org) and the Sacramento Audubon Society

(sacramentoaudubon.org) offer resources on birds that populate our

area, and where and when to find them. If you’d rather bring the birds

to your backyard, head to Wild Birds Unlimited (roseville.wbu.com) or

The Bird Shop (thebirdshoponline.com) in Roseville for supplies that’ll

have them flocking to your neck of the woods.

Thirsty for adventure? Discover new watering

holes with friends and family on the Sac Brew Bike

(sacbrewbike.com) where you’ll pedal through

scenic Sac stopping at the best local, and

locally owned, bars.

WORK IT OUT, OUTSIDE

Keep those quarantine pounds at bay (and

take advantage of April’s cool weather)

with outdoor workouts. Jazzercise Folsom

(jazzercise.com) is holding classes on the

patio at Hawkins School of Performing

Arts—blue skies only make these upbeat

classes better. For the mamas struggling to

carve out some kid-free time to exercise,

FIT4MOM Folsom Lake (folsomlake.fit4mom.

com) is partnering with the El Dorado

Community Services District to offer a

“Stroller Strides” class. Get in some outdoor

full-body conditioning while the kiddos stay

entertained with bubbles and songs.

HIT THE LINKS

There’s nothing like a round of golf to help

you unwind and recenter. Quiet, interrupted

only by the satisfying thwack of a club

meeting the ball, and walking lush lawns is

as much the fun of golf as competing against

friends. Granite Bay Golf Club (clubcorp.

com/clubs/granite-bay-golf-club) delivers

the complete package experience—scenic

fairways surrounded by oaks and wetlands, a

challenging course to satisfy your competitive

streak, and a beautiful patio (as well as a

top-notch kitchen) to toast your win. If you’re

looking to sharpen your swing, head to the

driving range at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex

(hagginoaks.com) in Sacramento.

Lover’s Leap

Auburn State Recreation Area

VISIT THE NEAREST STATE PARK

The Auburn State Recreation Area is a local favorite because it offers

access to an abundance of outdoor activities like fishing, boating,

mountain biking, and camping. Hike the Lake Clementine Trail to the

scenic dam overlook. The waterfall-like runoff, with its roaring waters

and bracing mist, is a great photo-op. You’ll also get a stellar bridge

shot as the trail winds underneath the famed Foresthill Bridge (as

seen in rom-com The Ugly Truth and a daring action scene from XXX).

For state park details, visit parks.ca.gov; for trail information, visit

alltrails.com.

ROCK (CLIMB) & ROLL

Don’t know how to get started with rock climbing? REI Co-op (rei.com/

events) in Folsom takes first-timers out to Auburn for an introductory

course. The best part is the reasonably priced adventure includes

the necessary gear. For the experienced climber, REI’s Classic Rock

Climbing Tour offers the chance to sharpen technique and build

community. Or take the entire family climbing at Quarry Park Adventures

(quarrypark.com) in Rocklin where you can scale natural granite walls,

repel down a 60-foot drop, or challenge yourself with their Via Ferrata

experience—a series of swinging bridges and climbing challenges. Also

in aptly named Rocklin is Lover’s Leap—“the leap” being one of the best

local spots if you’re looking for a more advanced adventure.

GO FLOWER SPOTTING

Start gathering ideas for this year’s garden by visiting

Sherwood Demonstration Garden (mgeldorado.ucanr.edu/

demonstration_garden) in Placerville. As you stroll through

16 individual gardens, pay attention to the plant labels

for water-use information; they’ll help you decide what

flower variety might be the right choice for your space.

Then check out what’s in bloom at Amador Flower Farm &

Nursery (amadorflowerfarm.com) in Plymouth. With 14 acres

to discover, a day here is the perfect alfresco diversion.

Just don’t forget to glean a few tips from

nursery staff so you can revel in your own

garden this year!

HAVE A “ BOARD ” MEETING

The first signs of spring always give

us a hankering for the water. Stand-up

paddle boarding gets you on our region’s

rivers and lakes; plus, the boards have

enough room to bring your pup, too!

Start by picking one up at SUP California

(supcalifornia.com) in Folsom. Once you’re

all geared up, head to one of the many

Folsom Lake access points—Willow Creek

Boat Launch, Folsom Point, Beal’s Point, or

Negro Bar, to name a few. To take paddle

boarding up a notch, try yoga on the

water with SUP DOG Paddle Board Yoga

(spotteddogyoga.com/supyoga.php) or Full

Circle Yoga & SUP (fullcircleyogasup.com).

GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE

Help your community by getting outside and making a difference. Download

the Charity Miles app (charitymiles.org), choose a route from the recommended

paved trails, and get moving! For every mile logged, a corporate sponsor donates

to the charity of your choice. If you’d rather use your hands, El Dorado County

Habitat for Humanity (edchabitat.org) can use some help with their Brush with

Kindness program where you’ll provide exterior home repair and maintenance, like

painting, landscaping, and replacing doors to benefit low-income households in

homeownership. We can’t forget our four-legged friends who need some love at the

Placer SPCA (placerspca.org)—sign up as a volunteer and take a pup for a walk.

If we could see the

miracle of a single

flower clearly

our whole life would

change.



—Buddha

BLAZE A TRAIL

A perk of our region is the plethora of paved

trails. Whether you prefer a walk, run, or

bike ride, Folsom’s 59 miles of trails offer

you endless routes. One of our favorite

biking adventures starts with picking up

a rental at Folsom Bike (folsombike.com)

followed by soaking in lake views as you

begin your route on the Folsom Lake Trail.

Hook onto the Johnny Cash Trail and

stop for a bite on Sutter Street before

heading back. If a jog is more your speed,

the Humbug Willow Creek Trail meanders

through scenic open space corridors. Other

paved paths to check out? Miners Ravine

Trail (8.4-mile heavily trafficked out-andback

route in Roseville) and the El Dorado

Trail (7.9-mile moderately trafficked outand-back

route near Diamond Springs).

Dining Out

Main Street

Tap House

BY LORN RANDALL // PHOTOS BY DANTE FONTANA

Korean Pork Street Tacos


Location, location, location.” I’ve heard it said a million times in regards

to the potential success of a restaurant. If that’s the case, then Main Street

Tap House in Downtown Placerville can look forward to a healthy 2021,

and beyond—they have location in spades. Sited just off Highway 50 on

Main Street, you literally can’t miss it.

The eatery has something else in spades that visitors will appreciate—

74 stylemg.com | APRIL 2021 | /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags

“THE KOREAN PORK

STREET TACOS WERE

MY FAVORITE DISH

OF THE DAY; THE

SRIRACHA BARBECUE

SAUCE WASN’T

OVERPOWERING, AND

THE COMBO OF PORK

AND PINEAPPLE

SALSA WAS AKIN TO

AL PASTOR.”


Baby Back Ribs

Mexicano Flatbread

Berry Shortcake

their parking lot—as spots can be a precious commodity in the historic hamlet’s

downtown district. They also have a beautiful open bar that will soon be serving

patrons their favorite libations (after Covid-19 restrictions are lifted). In the

meantime, there are high-top tables in front of the bar, abundant indoor seating

options, and a spacious patio area.

I stopped in for lunch on a

Louisiana Shrimp Dip sunny winter day to sample the

fare and gaze longingly at the

brew and cocktail menu (alas,

no designated driver). I asked my

server for their recommendations

and was told to start with the

Louisiana shrimp dip. The cheesy

amalgamation came scorching hot

in a cast iron pan with those “tricolor

tortilla chips” made popular

in the ’90s. The dip itself was tangy

(pickled jalapeños?), cheesy, and

beloved by my friend and fellow

dining partner.

Next on the list: Mexicano

flatbread with chorizo, steak,

jalapeño crema, pickled jalapeños,

onions, olives, tomatoes, and jack

cheese. The verdict? A generously

portioned fiesta de sabor (flavor party),

including a kick from the capsicum, that

would be plenty as an entrée or shareable

appetizer.

I took a chance on my server’s next

suggestion of baby back ribs in honey

sriracha barbecue sauce. I review a lot of

BBQ and a lot of ribs, and I also review actual

barbecues and smokers, so I have some

opinions. This rendition was wonderfully

meaty and plated nicely, though they would

have benefitted from a low and slow cook (my

preference). The fries and cilantro-fennel slaw

served alongside it were superb, however.

The Korean pork street tacos were my

favorite dish of the day; the sriracha barbecue

sauce wasn’t overpowering, and the combo

of pork and pineapple salsa was akin to al pastor. They came three to an order,

which was enough to share.

If you’re looking to cure a post-meal sweet tooth, their rotating cake selection

(like the berry shortcake with freshly whipped cream) can't be missed.

Stop in for one of their 20-plus beers on tap (many brewed locally) and a bite

to eat, and bring your friends!

A Part Café // Seldom do I go someplace new and immediately become a fan. It happens, but it’s not

the norm. A Part Café on Roseville’s Vernon Street is one of those places. They took on Covid-19 and all its

restrictions to open in late Summer 2020, and the reviews have been outstanding. They’re most well-known

for their shwacos and pocket pies—the former being a portmanteau for shawarma (a Middle Easternstyle

of spit-cooked meat, usually served on pita bread) and the ubiquitous Mexican/American taco. The

meats are rubbed in APC’s special shawarma spices, then smoked in applewood, and the results are like no

taco you’ve ever had. Their mint barbecue sauce (za’atar), cumin/yogurt/white sauce, and Thai pepper shatta

are all made in-house and add depth to the one-of-a-kind creations. Shwacos come in lamb, chicken, beef,

or vegetarian (stewed fava beans or smoked portobello mushrooms) on a pitatilla (fluffy flatbread) topped

with herbs and pickled onions. The pocket pies remind me of when I used to work next door to a piroshki

(meat-filled, deep-fried hand-pies from Russia) shop, except these are baked in a flaky crust, not deep-fried.

Pocket pies come in spinach and cheese, shakshouka (spicy stewed tomato and egg) and cheese, and beef

with tahini. The café has many other specialty goodies, too, plus full plates of their popular items, “Family

Shwaco Meal Kits,” sweet treats (the tahini chocolate chip cookie can’t be missed), and nitrogeninfused

mocktails…truly setting them apart from the region’s other restaurants. 217 Vernon Street, Roseville,
