Style Magazine - May 2021

Getting hungry? Flip to “Holy Cow” on page 55 where we spotlight over 25 of our region’s best burgers, including the beauty on our cover from Bricks Eats & Drinks. Having grown up on McDonald’s cheeseburgers, I must say, America’s quintessential comfort food has come a long way from the frozen patties and processed cheese of my past. House-made buns, farm-fresh fixings, and over-the-top toppings like bacon jam, garlic pickles, and fried green beans are just a sampling of what awaits. We even showcase a few meat-free offerings (for the veg heads out there) and highlight our favorite French fries. Another perfect burger pairing? A big, bold beer; for five STYLE-tested and approved IPAs, check out “West is Best” (page 96). May also marks National Bike Month—a movement meant to showcase the myriad benefits of biking and encourage more people to pedal places. Luckily, my daughter is just as obsessed with bikes as my husband and me, which means family rides on the American River Bike Trail are a regular activity for us. Her easy-to-install, secure, and stylish seat (sold locally at Bob’s Cycle Center!) is featured in “Back in the Saddle” (page 40), along with 12 more cycling essentials. Make a pledge to hop on your bike as often as possible (and always wear a helmet) by visiting mayisbikemonth.com. And remember: A post-ride reward—like a big, juicy burger and freshly poured pint—should be part of every adventure. Cheers! —Megan megan@stylemg.com @meggoeggowaffle

| editor’s letter |<br />

Motherhood has made<br />

me a complete and<br />

utter softie. Don’t get<br />

me wrong: I’ve always<br />

been sentimental and<br />

had a sensitive soul,<br />

but ever since giving<br />

birth to my baby girl, even song lyrics and sappy<br />

car commercials make me cry. I don’t know<br />

if it’s my hormones or because parenthood<br />

is such an emotional, joyous journey, but<br />

waterproof mascara is now a makeup musthave<br />

(when I actually wear makeup, that is!).<br />

Most recently, my eyes turned teary after<br />

reading this issue’s Get to Know article, “Super<br />

Women,” where Tara Mendanha shares<br />

four moms’ stories of strength, success, and<br />

selflessness that’ll have you laughing and—<br />

if you’re like me—crying. And though every<br />

mom deserves to be recognized (it really is the<br />

hardest job in the world), the ones profiled here<br />

truly do rise about the rest. Turn to page 16 to read all about them, including their best<br />

words of mom wisdom (“Be present and take lots of pictures with your eyes; time flies by<br />

so fast.”)—and remember to honor your own mom come <strong>May</strong> 9.<br />

“There are<br />

two gifts<br />

we should<br />

give our<br />

children;<br />

one is roots,<br />

and the<br />

other is<br />

wings.”<br />

—Hodding<br />

Carter<br />

Where it Matters.<br />

(Check out page 42 for a Mother’s Day Gift Guide featuring some<br />

great, locally found treasures.)<br />

If you prefer salivating over sobbing, flip to “Holy Cow” on<br />

page 55 where we spotlight over 25 of our region’s best burgers,<br />

the veg heads out there) and highlight our favorite French fries.<br />

Another perfect burger pairing? A big, bold beer; for five STYLEtested<br />

<strong>May</strong> also marks National Bike Month—a movement meant<br />

to showcase the myriad benefits of biking and encourage more<br />

people to pedal places. Luckily, my daughter is just as obsessed<br />

with bikes as my husband and me, which means family rides on<br />

the American River Bike Trail are a regular activity for us. Her<br />

easy-to-install, secure, and stylish seat (sold locally at Bob’s Cycle<br />

Are you an<br />

early bird<br />

or a<br />

night owl?<br />

“I had to wake up early for a<br />

flight recently and was shocked<br />

to learn that it's still dark at<br />

6:30 a.m. so that should tell you<br />

how often I'm awake before 8<br />

a.m.…”—Suzie Dundas<br />

“It depends! I enjoy the quiet<br />

before folks ‘get to the office,’ as<br />

it gives me time to catch up on<br />

emails, etc., but when we’re<br />

on deadline, I can pull an allnighter—or<br />

a late-nighter—no<br />

problem. I definitely like my<br />

eight hours of sleep, when I can<br />

get it, though!”—Wendy Sipple<br />

“Can I pick the middle of the day?<br />

I’m not cheery in the morning<br />

and definitely not one to stay up<br />

late!”—Theresa Arnold<br />

“Ever since working at Starbucks<br />

when my shifts would start<br />

before sunrise, I’ve been a<br />

morning person. After all, the<br />

early bird gets the worm—and<br />

the freshest coffee—right?!”<br />

—Megan Wiskus<br />

column, auto aficionado and<br />

local resident Mitchell Weitzman<br />

takes the 2020 Genesis G70<br />

for a spin and shares his honest<br />

of what he has to say about it.<br />

angel wing mural to Historic Folsom. Sited on<br />

Super Women<br />

4 Moms of the Year<br />


Mom, Mama, Mommy—superheroines are known<br />

by many names! Mothers juggle parenting,<br />

careers, and housekeeping while still retaining<br />

their identities as women with dreams and<br />

aspirations of their own. We found some inspiring<br />

moms in honor of Mother’s Day (<strong>May</strong> 9) who’ve<br />

defied odds, tasted success, changed lives, and<br />

are raising children to do the same.<br />


Mom of 2, Roseville<br />

G<br />

ayle has built an impressive resume all while raising two<br />

self-sufficient boys: Jack (25), who studied mechanical<br />

engineering and is currently finishing a paramedic program; and<br />

Max (20), a talented soccer player who’s majoring in finance.<br />

The Placer County Superintendent of Schools is currently on<br />

her fourth term and oversees 16 school districts, 150 schools,<br />

and over 75,000 students. “I lead by building relationships,” she<br />

says of her successful tenure. Her long list of accomplishments<br />

includes chair and board positions on countless education<br />

committees and receiving of half a dozen professional awards.<br />

What has your journey through motherhood been like?<br />

I’ve lived through the challenges of working,<br />

motherhood, and self-care. I [returned to work] after<br />

six weeks of maternity leave for my first child. I got<br />

my master’s degree in education thereafter and<br />

interviewed for an administrative job just three days<br />

after giving birth to my youngest, joining the new<br />

position when he was three weeks old. When I ran for<br />

county superintendent, my sons—five and nine—helped<br />

distribute flyers with a cute “Vote for my mom!” pitch.<br />

What’s your parenting style?<br />

I wanted my children to be well-rounded, so I paid attention<br />

not only to school but their social life and extracurricular activities.<br />

I didn’t want stressed-out kids who had unreasonable expectations<br />

that took a toll on their mental health. They’re educated,<br />

responsible, respectful, and caring adults—that’s a home run.<br />

What are your dreams for yourself and your children?<br />

I want my boys to be healthy and happy, and I want to make sure<br />

that I raised them to be responsible, respectful, and caring. And<br />

they are. Now, I wonder what type of parents they will be, and<br />

I hope they incorporate some of my parenting strategies when<br />

raising their own kids.<br />

Q&A<br />

One thing that gets you through the day: I strive to be the best person that I can be<br />

for that day. Nothing more, nothing less.<br />

Best part about being a mom: I love moving from being an active parent of boys to<br />

now being a parent of adult children. Parenting still happens, just in a different way.<br />

Not-so-great part about being a mom: The stress. There were times when my boys<br />

were younger that life was stressful. Once I dealt with it, I became a better mom.<br />

Best mom advice: Love your kids but set boundaries. They may seem like angels, but<br />

they don’t always act like angels.<br />

Absolute mom must-have: High-quality childcare that you trust. You cannot<br />

succeed without it.<br />

When the going gets tough…Throw yourself a 30-minute pity party then get up,<br />

shake yourself off, and keep moving forward.<br />

Mom of 4, El Dorado Hills<br />

A<br />

shlie is a self-proclaimed type A personality, which comes in<br />

handy when you’re the CEO—and co-founder—of antitrafficking<br />

nonprofit, 3Strands Global Foundation (3strands.com).<br />

“My faith grounds me every day and I believe in the power of the<br />

human spirit,” she says.<br />

She’s been awarded two State Resolutions and will finish her Public<br />

Leadership Credential from Harvard and begin her master’s in public<br />

administration from Cornell. To top it off, Ashlie is also a triathlete and<br />

mom to four (now five, with the addition of her daughter-in-law, Claire):<br />

David (24), who’s a numbers whiz in finance; Grace (20), who loves<br />

kids and is studying to be a teacher; Matthew (18), an adventurer and<br />

freshman at college; and witty Jonathan (15), a high school sophomore.<br />

What has your journey through motherhood been like?<br />

It’s been pure joy with lots of ups, downs, and laughter. Being a 30-<br />

year cancer survivor gave me a different perspective on parenting.<br />

Each day is a gift, and we pack a lot into it. I’ve made parenting<br />

mistakes, but I learned to apologize. This helps my kids see that<br />

mistakes can happen but so can forgiveness.<br />

What’s your parenting style?<br />

I’ve used the love and logic parenting technique for 17 years. I’ve also<br />

used motivational interviewing, aka, listening. It meant I needed to<br />

learn to not formulate my response as my kids were sharing. It has<br />

been one of the toughest things to implement but helps foster trust<br />

and openness. Now, parenting is “letting go and letting them fly.”<br />

What are your dreams for yourself and your children?<br />

I want to continue to advocate for children and protect them from<br />

exploitation. [I hope my kids] are grounded in their faith, choose jobs<br />

that challenge them and fill their cup, choose spouses who make<br />

them laugh, and remain close to each other.<br />

Q&A<br />

One thing that gets you through the day: Hope. It can get you through the<br />

toughest times and it sustains me every day.<br />

Best part about being a mom: Every part. I remember telling my mom, “I love<br />

this stage.” Then I would say it again and again. She laughed one time saying,<br />

“Ashlie, you’ve loved every stage!”<br />

Not-so-great part about being a mom: When natural consequences happen and<br />

your child really hurts from them.<br />

Best mom advice: Be present and take lots of pictures with your eyes. Time<br />

flies by so fast.<br />

Absolute mom must-have: Animals. They give kids a taste of responsibility and<br />

demonstrate what it means to have someone disobey and how to love them anyway.<br />

When the going gets tough…Take a deep breath, pray, and step forward.<br />


Mom of 4, Cameron Park<br />

N<br />

ikki is the consummate go-getter. “I’m focused and driven.<br />

I’m a survivor. I truly care about others. And I’m hilarious!”<br />

has a learning disability; and bubbly baby<br />

Bella (3). “All my kids are fully involved in<br />

charity and enjoy helping others,” she says<br />

proudly.<br />

Nikki helps run her daughter’s<br />

nonprofit, MJ’s Project (mjsproject.org),<br />

which provides necessities to teens in<br />

need. “I grew up in the foster system and<br />

lived on the street. There were never<br />

any resources available, so I know how<br />

vital it is to have basic life essentials and<br />

guidance.” Nikki also finds the time to<br />

volunteer with Friends of Folsom and is a<br />

member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles.<br />

What are your biggest accomplishments?<br />

My children! And I’ve successfully created<br />

a resource for over 300 struggling teens.<br />

I’ve overcome all my challenges, put<br />

myself through college, got my kids in,<br />

or set for, college, and have risen out<br />

of government assistance to be selfsufficient.<br />

What has your journey through<br />

motherhood been like?<br />

I was a teen mom, going to college, then<br />

attempting to further my career as a<br />

young mom. Being a single parent can<br />

be overwhelming, and I’ve had to learn<br />

how to not be hard on myself. It’s vital to<br />

get out and breathe or dance in the rain.<br />

I’ve built stuff with my son and daughter<br />

and enjoy playing with my toddler. I love<br />

making memories.<br />

What are your dreams for yourself and<br />

your children?<br />

My dream is to own our own home<br />

that no one can take from us. (We just<br />

moved from low-income apartments to<br />

a house.) My dream for my children is to<br />

be successful to where no one can take<br />

anything from them!<br />

Q&A<br />

One thing that gets you through the day:<br />

The thought of my kids being successful as<br />

independent adults.<br />

Best part about being a mom: I’m able to guide<br />

them through all their challenges in order to be<br />

successful adults.<br />

Not-so-great part about being a mom: Learning<br />

to accept that each child is their own person no<br />

matter what you set them up for or hoped for.<br />

Best mom advice: Teach them, guide them, and<br />

accept that they will be their own individual.<br />

Absolute mom must-have: Whiteboard, crockpot,<br />

and Instant Pot.<br />

When the going gets tough…Remember to be kind<br />

to yourself! Just know you did your best and they<br />

will always carry the best parts of you.<br />


Mom of 2, Granite Bay<br />

D<br />

aphne is decidedly driven and diligent.<br />

She graduated college with a degree<br />

in biological sciences and proceeded to<br />

study health care administration and<br />

finance. She worked as a health care<br />

consultant and in the California State<br />

Legislature, then completed a law degree,<br />

and now works for the Kaiser Roseville and<br />

Sacramento Medical Centers.<br />

She volunteers her time on the McGeorge<br />

School of Law Diversity Board and sits on<br />

the board of KidsFirst (kidsfirstnow.org), a<br />

nonprofit that prevents child abuse. Serious<br />

stuff aside, Daphne loves a good book,<br />

traveling to Latin America, and creative<br />

architectural activities—having recently<br />

designed a Spanish tile fountain. “All [this is]<br />

just a fraction of my persona…I focus my time<br />

and attention on two beautiful children,” she<br />

says of Ethan (6) who’s precocious and loves<br />

Medieval Times; and Esme (3) who, Daphne<br />

says, is hilarious.<br />

What has your journey through motherhood<br />

been like?<br />

Motherhood challenges time management,<br />

patience, communication, and discipline. We<br />

learn so much about ourselves as we care<br />

for our children. I have had to balance my<br />

career and be available for my children, and I<br />

wouldn’t have it any other way.<br />

What’s your parenting style?<br />

I believe setting expectations is key as well<br />

as appropriate boundaries. That said, it’s<br />

sometimes hard to adhere to when a cute<br />

three-year-old looks up teary-eyed asking<br />

why they’re in time-out after hitting their<br />

brother.<br />

What are your dreams for yourself and your<br />

children?<br />

I often reflect on what world my children<br />

will inherit. The dream for a kinder, gentler,<br />

more inclusive, and thoughtful world is<br />

worth aspiring to and starts within ourselves;<br />

opening a door for someone, saying hello to<br />

a stranger, or simply asking how someone is<br />

doing is the example I set for my children.<br />

Q&A<br />

One thing that gets you through the day: Knowing<br />

that I get to come home to my amazing, supportive,<br />

and funny husband, and our two little ones.<br />

Best part about being a mom: Being someone<br />

else’s support system and cheerleader in order to<br />

help them to become the best person they can be.<br />

Not-so-great part about being a mom: Always<br />

feeling like you’re not doing enough or could be<br />

doing more.<br />

Best mom advice: Trust your gut and know that<br />

you’re doing the absolute best. Your kids think<br />

you’re doing a fantastic job at being their mom.<br />

Absolute mom must-have: Coffee machine.<br />

When the going gets tough…I put myself in timeout<br />

or do an activity outside.<br />

It’s Women’s Health Month and a reminder to<br />

make your health a priority.<br />


• Schedule preventive screenings - mammograms and pap tests<br />

can detect diseases early when they are treatable<br />

• Get and stay active - 30 minutes a day of moderate exercise<br />

• Eat a balanced diet - to provide energy, maintain a healthy<br />

weight, build strong bones, prevent disease and boost your mood<br />

• Manage stress - with deep breaths, yoga, meditation, proper<br />

rest and physical activity<br />

• Practice good sleep habits - to improve mental and physical<br />

well-being<br />

• Monitor alcohol intake - moderation is the key<br />

• Protect your lungs - smoking and vaping weakens lungs and<br />

increases risk of serious complications<br />


Earlier detection just got better<br />

We are excited to provide advanced technology for<br />

our patients. With 3D mammography at Marshall, you<br />

can expect:<br />

• improved diagnostic accuracy from detailed images<br />

• earlier detection of breast cancer<br />

• reduced false positive call backs<br />

• low-dose x-ray that meets FDA safety standards<br />

Is it time to schedule your mammogram?<br />

Speak to your doctor about what<br />

screenings are recommended for you.<br />

6 Modern<br />

Calligraphy<br />

Masters<br />


The term calligraphy<br />

comes from the marrying<br />

of two Greek words,<br />

“kallos” (meaning beauty)<br />

and “graphein” (meaning<br />

to write). But calligraphy<br />

is more than beautiful<br />

handwriting—it’s an<br />

ancient art form practiced<br />

in cultures all over the<br />

world, like China and India,<br />

each developing its own<br />

aesthetic. Hand lettering<br />

had to compete with the<br />

invention of printing,<br />

but calligraphers today<br />

continue the tradition with<br />

mediums like wedding<br />

invitations, diplomas,<br />

custom artwork, and even<br />

tattoos. Meet six local<br />

artists who have made a<br />

business of it.<br />

I love that words and<br />

art bring meaning<br />

to our lives. Words<br />

inspire, comfort,<br />

they express who<br />

you to lettering/<br />

calligraphy?<br />

The intrinsic beauty<br />

and rich history<br />

of the written<br />

word have always<br />

appealed to me.<br />

Calligraphy allows<br />

me to slow down<br />

and step away from<br />

digital ephemerals<br />

with a mindful<br />

intention to create<br />

lasting experiences<br />

design elements<br />

with letters, their<br />

creations give a new<br />

dimension to the<br />

alphabet.<br />

How did you<br />

develop your skills?<br />

My ongoing<br />

pilgrimage has<br />

led me to study<br />

authenticity.<br />

How did you develop<br />

your skills?<br />

I’m self-taught<br />

with a penchant<br />

for modern and<br />

Engrosser scripts. I<br />

remember spending<br />

countless hours<br />

online watching<br />

master penmen<br />

execute letter<br />

after letter. I was<br />

calligraphers and<br />

painters; I’ve found<br />

joy along the way to<br />

share lettering with<br />

students, clients, and<br />

the community.<br />

@thecalligraphygirl<br />

What attracts<br />

you to lettering/<br />

calligraphy?<br />

I’ve always loved<br />

to write. When I<br />

turned 21, I received<br />

a calligraphy pen for<br />

my birthday and was<br />

instantly obsessed.<br />

I found it relaxing<br />

and could spend<br />

hours practicing.<br />

Calligraphy is such a<br />

stress reliever.<br />

How did you<br />

develop your skills?<br />

I learned calligraphy by looking at calligraphy books and copying<br />

the different styles. Over the years, I picked up more styles, using<br />

different type of pens. My favorite right now is brush calligraphy.<br />

What’s your favorite service that you provide?<br />

Teaching calligraphy classes. I was doing different types of classes<br />

until the pandemic hit and then transitioned to doing them on Zoom.<br />

Now that the weather is getting better and things are opening, I’m<br />

looking forward to getting back to in-person classes, even if they’re<br />

outdoors and distanced. I love watching people learn and fall in love<br />

with the art of lettering. My kids’ summer calligraphy classes are the<br />

most fun, because children catch on so fast, and I know they’ll spend<br />

less time on devices once they discover such a creative outlet.<br />

What attracts<br />

you to lettering/<br />

calligraphy?<br />

In our world<br />

of fonts and<br />

computer-focused<br />

communication,<br />

hand lettering<br />

is such a warm,<br />

personal change.<br />

It humanizes our<br />

snail mail, our media,<br />

the invitations we<br />

receive, and the<br />

branding we see. No<br />

one can write exactly,<br />

precisely like anyone<br />

else. These days, it’s truly an art form instead of a stuffy etiquette<br />

expectation. I also love that it’s accessible to all—anyone can practice<br />

with different pens and create their own style.<br />

How did you develop your skills?<br />

I’ve been playing around with calligraphy and hand lettering since I<br />

was young. I volunteered to make place cards for special occasions at<br />

every opportunity. Practice makes perfect, as with anything we want<br />

to get better at. There are so many resources that can help someone<br />

learn to do calligraphy and hand lettering today: various pens with<br />

different tips, smooth writing tablets and graph paper, books, online<br />

courses, Instagram how-tos. I’ve used all of them at different times<br />

and am also guilty of wandering the “pen” aisle (and buying way too<br />

many!). Expensive pens, cheap pens…I’m obsessed. I recently bought<br />

my daughter a kids’ hand lettering book, so we’ll see if that sticks<br />

and this all gets passed on.<br />

What’s the most interesting project you’ve worked on so far?<br />

Watching snail mail explode during COVID-19 has been a huge bright<br />

spot in the last year. Knowing that I’ve been a part of encouraging<br />

people to connect with others and forge connection during such<br />

an isolating time feels like a real accomplishment. It only takes one<br />

person telling you, “That card struck a chord with my sister when she<br />

got it,” and my whole week is made.<br />

@pigmentandparchment<br />

What attracts<br />

you to lettering/<br />

calligraphy?<br />

I’ve always loved<br />

everything made<br />

by hand. Signs,<br />

ephemera, movie<br />

posters—all these<br />

were things I<br />

collected and fell<br />

in love with when<br />

I was little. I was<br />

always into being a<br />

pen pal, so I spent<br />

my formative years<br />

obsessing over<br />

stationery, postage,<br />

and fancy scripts to<br />

delight friends and family. When I was older, I incorporated lettering<br />

into my art, and my high school art teacher would laugh at me and<br />

was tickled. In college, I worked as a sign artist at Trader Joe’s, which<br />

is what really ramped up my appreciation for hand lettering and<br />

introduced me to calligraphy.<br />

What’s the most interesting project you’ve worked on so far?<br />

Probably Mary Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy’s wedding stationery.<br />

What made it so interesting (besides that I grew up a literal cardcarrying<br />

member of the Olsen twins’ fan club) was that I didn’t know<br />

about the event until the week of. It was Thanksgiving week, and I<br />

didn’t know it was for a wedding the whole time! I was told it was for<br />

a fancy Black Friday dinner for their fashion business. Then, the day<br />

after their wedding, my friend texted me about them having bowls<br />

of cigarettes at their secret wedding, and I told her to my surprise I<br />

did their wedding stationery without knowing there was even going<br />

to be one!<br />

What’s your most notable achievement?<br />

Working on the wedding of a Vogue art director was a real “pinch<br />

me” moment. Other than that, I’m lucky enough to connect with<br />

people, make art every day, and be paid enough to travel and have<br />

a balanced life. Keeping it a small boutique business where I still<br />

do everything by hand, with care and quality—in a world where<br />

everything is about automation and cheap mass production—is an<br />

achievement I’m proud of.<br />

@lamplight_lettering<br />

What attracts<br />

you to lettering/<br />

calligraphy?<br />

As a secondgeneration<br />

lettering<br />

artist, I grew up<br />

watching my late<br />

father, a sign painter<br />

by trade, paint<br />

perfect strokes.<br />

Drippy 1 Shot paint<br />

cans, the trail of wet<br />

paint that followed<br />

his brushes so<br />

skillfully, and the<br />

seemingly endless<br />

artistic possibilities<br />

of the alphabet<br />

captivated me from a young age. There’s a sense of nostalgia when<br />

I see calligraphy and lettering art. It wasn’t until I was married with<br />

four kids that calligraphy became a real passion pursuit of my own.<br />

I found my father’s lettering books while digging through my art<br />

supplies one day, and the rest is history! Calligraphy allows me to<br />

express myself and decompress from the stresses of mom life. I<br />

discovered a community of artists online as well who share the<br />

same crazy passion for letters. I love that calligraphy is meditative,<br />

peaceful, and cathartic. It connects me to my father, to history, and<br />

forces me to slow down and breathe deeply.<br />

What’s your most notable achievement?<br />

I’m most proud of teaching myself how to plan and teach workshops,<br />

including my first one at West Elm in Roseville. It was all worth it<br />

when one of my students told me she had been having a very rough<br />

year and was trying to find ways to manage her anxiety. When she<br />

left my workshop, it felt like she had just walked out of a massage.<br />

She was so relaxed and happy and couldn’t wait to work on her<br />

calligraphy! That feels like the ultimate achievement to me.<br />

What’s your favorite service that you provide and why?<br />

I would say the most meaningful and humbling project so far are<br />

script tattoos. The fact that someone wants to put my handwriting<br />

permanently on their body blows my mind. It’s such an honor and fills<br />

me with so much gratitude! I also really enjoy window murals—they’re<br />

such a fun way to elevate a brand and attract customers’ attention.<br />

8 Healthy Teeth Tips<br />


According to Dr. Seuss, “Teeth are always in<br />

style.” And we couldn’t agree more. But what’s<br />

the secret to a picture-perfect smile, minty-fresh<br />

breath, and good-looking gums? Brush up on<br />

your oral health with these top tips from Gregory<br />

G. Olsen, DDS, FICOI, at Folsom Oral Surgery<br />

and Implant Center (folsomdentalimplants.com);<br />

Fluoride Is Your Friend. Fluoride,<br />

aka nature’s cavity fighter, is a mineral<br />

found in the earth’s core. Before our teeth<br />

come in, our body absorbs it through nutrients<br />

to help build a resistance to tooth decay. Once<br />

our teeth are in, brushing or using other dental<br />

products with fluoride helps rebuild the eroded<br />

enamel and reverse the effects of tooth decay.<br />

With the risk of tooth decay lowered by using<br />

fluoride products, your chances of a heart<br />

attack or stroke also decrease.—Gregory G.<br />

Olsen, DDS, FICOI<br />

Eat More Veggies. Fresh<br />

vegetables do wonders for your<br />

teeth. They help clean plaque and<br />

keep you healthy, plus the vitamins and<br />

nutrients found in them can protect<br />

gums and other tissues. Staying hydrated<br />

and eating a balanced diet is an<br />

important part of good oral hygiene.—<br />

Ryan Grandpre, DDS, Kids Care Dental<br />

3<br />

Rinse the Right Way.<br />

Contrary to popular belief, you’re<br />

not supposed to rinse your mouth<br />

with only water immediately after<br />

brushing. When you do this, you take all<br />

that wonderful fluoride (see tip #1) and<br />

spit it down the drain without giving it<br />

enough time to attach to your teeth and<br />

patch up all the worn-down enamel.<br />

Instead, rinse with water before you spit<br />

the foamy leftover toothpaste out or use<br />

a fluoride rinse after brushing. —Gregory<br />

G. Olsen, DDS, FICOI<br />

4<br />

Visit the Dentist Regularly.<br />

The dentist will clean your teeth<br />

and treat any potential little<br />

problems before they turn into big ones.<br />

Routine dental checkups are essential to<br />

a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles.—Ryan<br />

Grandpre, DDS, Kids Care Dental<br />

5<br />

Know When to Toss Your<br />

Toothbrush. Your toothbrush<br />

only needs to stick around for about<br />

three months, or until the bristles start to<br />

fray. When they begin to fray, your brush<br />

won’t do its job properly, leaving your<br />

mouth defenseless against harmful<br />

bacteria.—Gregory G. Olsen, DDS, FICOI<br />

6<br />

Drink More Water. Drinking<br />

water with fluoride in it, usually in<br />

your local tap water, can be one of<br />

the easiest ways to prevent cavities. Start<br />

off small by drinking two cups every<br />

morning or replacing one of your many<br />

cups of coffee for water.—Gregory G.<br />

Olsen, DDS, FICOI<br />

7<br />

Floss Regularly. Plaque is a<br />

real party enamel and likes to hang<br />

out on your teeth. Letting it sit<br />

around for too long may lead to serious<br />

problems. Brushing won’t fight plaque<br />

alone, so include regular flossing in your<br />

teeth-cleaning routine.—Ryan Grandpre,<br />

DDS, Kids Care Dental<br />

8<br />

Brush Up on Your Brushing.<br />

The ADA recommends that you<br />

brush gently, in short strokes, at a<br />

45-degree angle for two minutes. This<br />

prevents the bristles from removing the<br />

enamel that protects your teeth. When<br />

brushing the backs of your teeth, it’s best<br />

to turn the brush vertically and make<br />

multiple short strokes on every tooth.—<br />

Gregory G. Olsen, DDS, FICOI<br />

Take a Hike<br />

Susie Lake<br />


LOCATED IN: South Lake Tahoe.<br />

DISTANCE: 7.9 miles out-and-back.<br />

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Moderate.<br />

FUEL UP: Getaway Café (tahoegetawaycafe.<br />

com)—conveniently located in<br />

Meyers—serves freshly prepared<br />

alpine comfort cuisine in<br />

warm, inviting environs. “99%<br />

of everything on their menu<br />

is made from scratch with<br />

love,” including the buttermilk<br />

banana nut pancakes loaded<br />

with walnuts, cinnamon, and<br />

caramelized bananas; coconutcrusted<br />

French toast; and<br />

fresh-baked biscuits smothered<br />

in sausage gravy.<br />

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: The road to the<br />

trailhead is rough (although most cars do fine).<br />

Expect rocky terrain the entire way. Arriving at<br />

Susie Lake makes<br />

it all worthwhile.<br />

Late storms can<br />

complicate navigation,<br />

so make sure you<br />

download the map<br />

before leaving.<br />

WHY WE LOVE IT: From<br />

waterfalls to alpine<br />

lakes, this glacierformed<br />

wilderness<br />

has been the muse<br />

of photographers,<br />

writers, and artists<br />

alike. Susie Lake<br />

lives up to the hype.<br />

TRAIL NOTES: Bring shoes with traction,<br />

plenty of water, and protect yourself from<br />

mosquitos. Leashed dogs are welcome but<br />

bring some boots for them, too. Dress in layers<br />

and enjoy the wilderness.<br />


BASICS<br />

When people think<br />

of navigation, they<br />

imagine finding<br />

their way after<br />

becoming lost.<br />

While this can<br />

happen, it’s also<br />

about tracking<br />

your progress as<br />

you go, reducing<br />

the probability of<br />

getting lost.<br />

Here are a few<br />

pointers:<br />

Download GPS<br />

maps. This ensures<br />

you can find your<br />

way (as long as<br />

you have battery).<br />

Learn map and<br />

compass basics.<br />

While this can be<br />

an undertaking,<br />

understanding<br />

how to identify<br />

landmarks and<br />

relate them to<br />

your map can save<br />

your life.<br />

Look backwards!<br />

Most people<br />

focus on looking<br />

at what’s ahead.<br />

Looking back every<br />

few hundred feet<br />

will help you get<br />

familiar with your<br />

surroundings and<br />

help navigate your<br />

way back if you do<br />

become lost.<br />

Placer Academy Charter<br />

PROFESSION: Hands down, the kids. The ability<br />

to help spark curiosity and creative thinking is<br />

inspiring. There’s nothing quite as rewarding<br />

as watching the light turn on for a child.<br />


moved. We’d been searching for a new facility<br />

for quite some time and finally found our<br />

forever home. Our team is thrilled; it’s amazing!<br />

FIRST JOB: I was a summer camp counselor<br />

during high school.<br />

FAVORITE FOOD: Is coffee a food?<br />

LAST BIG PURCHASE: My daughter’s college<br />

tuition.<br />


Playing with my puppies and traveling. I can’t<br />

wait to get back to it!<br />

YOU LOVE LIVING HERE, BECAUSE: It’s close to<br />

everything: the beach, the mountains, the Bay<br />

Area, and Napa. I love the small-town feel with<br />

the big-city access. Plus, it’s a great place to<br />

Being able to serve people. Oftentimes, customers<br />

think their electronics can’t be fixed; it makes us feel<br />

good to repair something instead of throwing it away.<br />

Plus, we love working together as partners.<br />

FIRST JOB: We both worked at a phone repair kiosk in<br />

Westfield Galleria at Roseville.<br />

LAST BIG PURCHASE: We went on a 10-day trip to<br />

China and bought a lot of new equipment for the store.<br />

It really helped grow the company.<br />

YOU LOVE LIVING HERE, BECAUSE: It’s such a nice,<br />

A: Here are some easy ways to help ease<br />

the transition:<br />

• Start to let your child make decisions<br />

by giving them a couple of choices,<br />

such as what to wear.<br />

• Teach your child to be self-sufficient<br />

when using the restroom.<br />

• Read to your child; the more<br />

vocabulary they hear, the better their<br />

speaking and communication skills<br />

will be. Children also learn to become<br />

better readers by example.<br />

• While driving, sing the ABCs, point<br />

out signs and name their shapes, play<br />

games such as “name that color,” and/<br />

or point to names of stores and sound<br />

out the first letter.<br />

• Write simple words on index cards and<br />

hang them on the appropriate object,<br />

such as “door” or “wall.”<br />

There’s a world of opportunity all around<br />

us—at home, driving, and even at the<br />

grocery store. The greatest advice I can<br />

give a parent for preschool readiness—<br />

besides helping them academically—is to<br />

be kind! Build a relationship with your<br />

child that has a foundation of respect<br />

and love. When children are caring and<br />

compassionate, the learning comes easy.<br />

Listening to music has been<br />

VINYL<br />

a passion of mine for more<br />

than 40 years. As a young<br />

man, I was fortunate<br />

enough to work<br />


in the consumer<br />

electronics<br />

industry, an<br />

experience that<br />


opened doors<br />

and gave me a<br />

perspective I<br />

only dreamed<br />

possible as a<br />

melomaniac<br />

teenager.<br />

Photo ©picsfive - stock.adobe.com.<br />

So, does this make me<br />

qualified to review<br />

gear? While not a<br />

“reviewer” per se, I<br />

am an enthusiast, so I<br />

want to introduce you,<br />

or possibly reintroduce<br />

you, to a hobby of mine<br />

that’s given me great<br />

pleasure throughout my<br />

life: Listening to music; more<br />

specifically, to records.<br />

You’ve likely seen stories<br />

over the past few years about<br />

LPs—vinyl if you will, making a<br />

big comeback. Well, it’s true—LPs<br />

now outsell CDs in the retail world,<br />

and for good reason: They’re hip and<br />

sound spectacular! However, listening<br />

to records is a process, at least it should<br />

be. If you want the best from them, they<br />

should be played on high-quality equipment<br />

and properly taken care of. You clean your<br />

records and treat them like the jewels they are.<br />

It’s an activity I find cathartic; it helps set the mood<br />

and is part of the excitement of listening to wellrecorded<br />

music.<br />

The reason I say “well-recorded” is<br />

because there’s a killer on the loose,<br />

and little to nothing is being done. The<br />

killer’s name? MP3. Now, let’s be clear;<br />

we’ve allowed this to happen, all in the<br />

name of convenience—no different<br />

than frozen pizza or drive-through car<br />

washes. But MP3s are a travesty when<br />

it comes to quality. These simple little<br />

music files, being pumped into your ears<br />

by headsets that have no business even<br />

being called that, have reduced music to<br />

being a convenience, and its now fooling<br />

generations into thinking that this is<br />

what music sounds like. It’s like being<br />

told a Hyundai Elantra Sport is going to<br />

deliver a Porsche 911 experience. It’s not—<br />

it’s marketing.<br />

At this point, you may be asking<br />

yourself, “OK, so where do I start?” I’m<br />

glad you asked, because I want to share<br />

with you the simple, sheer delight of<br />

quality listening.<br />

Part of the fun of this hobby is finding<br />

gear you like: the looks, the functionality,<br />

the overall design, and the value. There’s<br />

a lot of product out there, so before I get<br />

to the turntable (TT), let me recommend a<br />

few products to pair with your TT—gear<br />

that offers both great value and sound.<br />

Think of it as that bottle of Pinot Noir you<br />

bought for $10 that surprises the heck<br />

out of you.<br />

First, you’ll want an integrated amp,<br />

and my choice would be the NAD C<br />

316BEE (nadelectronics.com). It’s under<br />

$500, incorporates a phono preamp<br />

section, and simply put, sounds great.<br />

Speakers are such an objective thing<br />

to recommend. There are about 30<br />

times the number of speaker brands and<br />

models than there are autos to choose<br />

from, and in the end, there are many<br />

great-sounding speakers—it comes down<br />

to your ear, the room you’re listening in,<br />

the kind of power you’re driving them<br />

with, and the kind of sound that engages<br />

you. Here are a couple of products I own<br />

(or have owned), that'll serve you well<br />

without breaking the bank.<br />

The original KEF LS50 was released<br />

more than a decade ago and quickly<br />

won just about every major award on<br />

the planet. I own a pair and love them.<br />

KEF decided it was time to make a<br />

good speaker even better and recently<br />

released the LS50 Meta (us.kef.com).<br />

It’s a stand mount speaker that delivers<br />

astonishing sound and at $1499 SRP is<br />

considered by many reviewers one of<br />

audio’s best values.<br />

Next up, a floor standing speaker<br />

that comes from another company I’ve<br />

lived with in my home and office for<br />

more than 20 years—Bowers & Wilkins,<br />

or B&W. This company’s speakers, like<br />

KEF, are regarded in the industry as<br />

one of the best brands around. They<br />

offer superb engineering, quality of<br />

build, and sound that—when set up<br />

correctly—will make you think they<br />

have disappeared.<br />

The B&W 603 S2 Anniversary<br />

Edition (bowerswilkins.com) is a<br />

floor standing speaker that will take<br />

you to places you never dreamed<br />

you could go for $2,000 per pair.<br />

Impeccably designed and engineered,<br />

used exclusively at Abbey Road<br />

Studios (yes, that one!), B&W will<br />

deliver outstanding sound and is<br />

another product that delivers an<br />

experience way beyond their cost. If<br />

you want to spend less but still want<br />

quality sound, check out the ELAC<br />

brand (elac.com).<br />

Now that you’re dialed in to the<br />

key parts of your new system, its<br />

time to find the right turntable to<br />

start enjoying your new/old hobby of<br />

listening to records.<br />

Turntables have seen a massive<br />

resurgence over the past decade, one<br />

that few expected, but one that is welldeserved.<br />

Do LPs played on a TT sound<br />

better than other mediums like a CD or<br />

digital/streamed files? My answer is yes.<br />

If this is the first TT you’ve bought<br />

in more than 30 years, or ever, here are<br />

a few things you should consider: Buy<br />

a turntable that is “plug and play”; one<br />

that matches well with your integrated<br />

amp or receiver (has phono preamp);<br />

and, finally, one that comes with a premounted<br />

cartridge—the device that<br />

houses the stylus and translates the<br />

information from the record grooves<br />

into the signal that turns it into music via<br />

the preamp and your integrated amp.<br />

Your choices are many, but again,<br />

a few stand out. My journey back to<br />

listening to records started when I<br />

bought a “plug and play” Rega Planar<br />

1 (rega.co.uk). Listening to a good<br />

record for the first time on the British<br />

made Rega took me to that place I<br />

realized I had been missing. And<br />

so I jumped back in, finding my<br />

old records and jumped back<br />

in and cleaning them, which<br />

in and of itself is part of the<br />

romance of records and a mustdo<br />

if you’re going to really enjoy<br />

yourself and the music. Three<br />

albums in, and I was hooked<br />

again, just like that day in 1975<br />

when I bought my first “good”<br />

stereo system.<br />

Enjoying the Planar 1 as I<br />

did, I was able to get my hands<br />

on another turntable, the MoFi<br />

StudioDeck Foundation<br />

Turntable (mofielectronics.<br />

com), that did something I never<br />

expected—it took the pre-set<br />

turntable concept to a level,<br />

and at a price I never thought<br />

possible. It’s not fair of me to<br />

compare the MoFi at $999<br />

to a $500 TT. That said, while<br />

the price may be double, its<br />

performance quotient at this<br />

price point is hard to top. The<br />

“made in the USA” MoFi is, in my<br />

mind, the best pre-set TT you’ll<br />

find at under $1,000. Everything<br />

about it exudes quality—the<br />

design, the build, and the sound.<br />

The MoFi brand has been<br />

producing high-quality LPs and<br />

CDs for discerning customers<br />

for a long time, and their foray<br />

into the hardware world has<br />

been heralded as nothing<br />

less than terrific. With two<br />

turntables in the line, the list of<br />

positive reviews keeps growing.<br />

This is that rare, value-oriented<br />

turntable that deserves to be<br />

the centerpiece of your system.<br />

If my love of records was<br />

reborn with the Rega, the Mofi<br />

StudioDeck Foundation Turntable has<br />

me, as Bob Dylan said so beautifully,<br />

“knockin‘ on heaven’s door.”<br />

5 LPs FOR YOUR<br />


Great music, superb<br />

recordings…these records will<br />

help you to hear how great<br />

your turntable can sound.<br />

Dire Straits: Making Movies<br />

While many would go to Brothers<br />

in Arms, my money and system<br />

says Making Movies is the band’s<br />

definitive record. Keep your ear<br />

tuned for the stellar piano work<br />

from Roy Bittan of the E Street<br />

Band.—TC<br />

Frank Sinatra:<br />

Sinatra–Basie: An Historic<br />

Musical First<br />

This recording is ultra-quiet,<br />

Frank’s voice is near perfect, and<br />

The Count and his orchestra is,<br />

as always, first class. I listen to<br />

this record often—I mean, really often.—TC<br />

Keb' Mo': Keb Mo<br />

If you don’t know Keb Mo, you<br />

need to. This record is the<br />

Mobile Fidelity version, sonically<br />

outstanding. The music brings a<br />

smile to my face with every play.<br />

Keb is a singer/songwriter/<br />

musician with few peers.—TC<br />

The Dave Brubeck Quartet:<br />

Time Out<br />

What the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper<br />

did for rock, Brubecks’s Time<br />

Out did for jazz. Of the five LPs<br />

mentioned, make this your first<br />

purchase. Fantastic recording?<br />

Great music? Cool factor having it in your<br />

collection? Check! Check! Check! Released<br />

in 1959, the music is timeless.—TC<br />

Linda Ronstadt:<br />

Simple Dreams<br />

Songs from the likes of Buddy H,<br />

Zevon, Orbison, and The Stones.<br />

Background vocals from Dolly<br />

Parton, Don Henley, and JD<br />

Souther. A band consisting of<br />

some of LA’s top Laurel Canyon musicians<br />

and produced by the legendary Doug Sax,<br />

Simple Dreams is a tour de force. —Tom<br />

Hallock<br />

Hot, juicy hamburgers<br />

are always a hit.<br />

Something about<br />

a fresh-baked bun<br />

slathered with sauce,<br />

perfectly cooked patty,<br />

and extra-fresh fixings<br />

make America’s<br />

quintessential cuisine<br />

a real crowd-pleaser.<br />

And though not all<br />

burgers are created<br />

equal, our region is<br />

full of some truly<br />

meaty (and non-meat)<br />

masterpieces. Keep<br />

Best Burgers!<br />

Don’t mess with Texas—unless we’re talking<br />

’bout burgers! The El Paso Burger from<br />

Bricks Eats & Drinks pays tribute to the<br />

Lone Star State with its big, bold flavors. Served<br />

with bacon, fried onions, cheddar cheese,<br />

pickled jalapeños, lettuce, tomato, and piquant<br />

chipotle BBQ sauce on a brioche roll, it’s a<br />

welcome change if you’re suffering from basic<br />

burger burnout.<br />

PRO TIP: You can substitute gluten-free bread or<br />

vegan patties for any of their burgers—and, yes,<br />

they’re equally tasty!<br />

482 Main Street, Placerville, 530-303-3480,<br />

bricksonmainstreet.com<br />

Considering just how good the food at Mom<br />

& Pop Chicken Shop is, it shouldn’t come<br />

as a surprise that they serve one wicked<br />

cheeseburger—the Original Bad-Ass. The<br />

name says it all here. Their signature buns are<br />

unbelievably soft and buttery but hardy enough<br />

to hold together a juicy patty, with loads of<br />

hickory bacon cooked to perfection, and all the<br />

fixings—drunken Jack & Coke onions with a<br />

caramelized and smoky flavor, “shop sauce,”<br />

garlic pickles, and iceberg lettuce.<br />

PRO TIP: For a couple extra dollars, you can<br />

upgrade to a double patty.<br />

4355 Town Center Boulevard, Suite 114, El Dorado<br />

Hills, 916-673-9563, chxshp.com<br />

If you think a restaurant famous for its seafood<br />

can’t make a mouthwatering burger, you’re in<br />

for a surprise! The Chef’s Signature Burger<br />

at Scott’s Seafood Roundhouse takes<br />

a traditional American dish up a notch with<br />

high-brow ingredients: buttery brie cheese<br />

and bacon jam you see gracing cheese boards<br />

of high-end wineries. Staying true to the<br />

American spirit of a burger, Scott’s Seafood<br />

generously garnishes their burger in Woodford<br />

Reserve BBQ sauce and finishes it off with<br />

crispy onion strings and peppery arugula.<br />

PRO TIP: Choose from a rotating menu of gelato<br />

flavors to end your meal on a sweet note.<br />

824 Sutter Street, Folsom, 916-989-6711,<br />

So, you’ve decided to grab a cold one at<br />

Folsom Tap House. Why not soak up the<br />

suds with a burger? Their menu ensures crowdpleasers<br />

like the popular Oklahoma Smash<br />

Burger (“smashed” with sauteed onions, Dijon<br />

mustard, pickles, and American cheese). It’s a<br />

fan favorite for good reason—they don’t skimp<br />

on quality or quantity—but you’ll need to bring<br />

your appetite, as the portions are plentiful.<br />

PRO TIP: Order the horseradish white cheddar<br />

(extra charge) for an extra kick.<br />

Branch out from your ordinary all-American<br />

burger with the Peanut Butter Burger from<br />

Brickyard. Starting from a solid base—a patty<br />

made from a blend of fresh short rib, brisket, and<br />

juicy chuck—the adventure continues with the<br />

minimal but creative toppings: Thai peanut and<br />

hoisin sauce, which brings a unique sweet and<br />

salty flavor; sharp white cheddar, and pickled<br />

jalapeños for a hint of heat. Topping it all off is<br />

everyone’s favorite: bacon.<br />

PRO TIP: Enjoy live music with your meal<br />

Thursday-Saturday.<br />

1475 Eureka Road, Suite 120, Roseville, 916-836-<br />

Whether you head to Amador County for a day<br />

of wine tasting or stay for the weekend, you’re in<br />

good hands at Hotel Sutter—especially if the<br />

craving for a burger comes. Sit outside on their<br />

cozy balcony overlooking historic Main Street<br />

or on the spacious back patio and dig into the<br />

Whiskey Burger. This meaty, messy mouthful<br />

comes complete with bacon, lettuce, tomato,<br />

and cheddar, with a hefty helping of crispy onion<br />

strings, house-made BBQ sauce, and—for those<br />

who dare—a $5 whiskey shooter beforehand. Ask<br />

your server for an extra stack of napkins, because<br />

there’s no neat way to devour this delight.<br />

PRO TIP: What’s better than a burger and fries?<br />

A burger and beats! Enjoy live music every Friday<br />

and Saturday evening on their back patio.<br />

It’s been quite the night and now you’re left with the biggest hangover.<br />

What do you do? Make a beeline for Bar 101 Eats & Drinks, of course.<br />

Their Hangover Burger is just the cure for your boozy blues. This Angus<br />

beef patty is topped with a comforting fried egg, bacon, hash browns, and<br />

American cheese, and comes with copious amounts of fries (or chips or<br />

salad). It’s like a warm embrace in the form of a burger.<br />

PRO TIP: Bar 101 not only brings the cure but also the celebration. Check out<br />

their end-of-week live music nights or their Wednesday open mic night.<br />

Best Burgers!<br />

We could never forget about our pescatarian friends in this burger roundup. The Independent<br />

Restaurant & Bar makes a Salmon Avocado Burger that will keep you frequenting this Placerville<br />

locale. The patty, made from certified organic Pacific King salmon, shallots, and dill, mingles with the<br />

simultaneously tangy and sweet citrus-honey-dill aioli (made in-house) for a fresh, never-too-heavy<br />

bite. The creaminess of the avocado and crispness of traditional trimmings (lettuce, tomato, and red<br />

onions) seal the deal on this palate pleaser.<br />

PRO TIP: Burgers are served with a choice of fries, salad, or soup—we recommend the unique turnip fries!<br />

629 Main Street, Placerville, 530-344-7645, independentplacerville.com<br />

Tom’s Burgers &<br />

Frosty brings the<br />

nostalgia with their<br />

old-school offerings.<br />

Fantastic frozen treats,<br />

banana splits, and<br />

malted shakes aside,<br />

this joint also makes<br />

some good burgers<br />

and sandwiches. Their<br />

Ranch Burger is<br />

served on a soft but<br />

firm hoagie roll and<br />

holds lettuce, pickles,<br />

tomatoes, onions,<br />

and your choice of<br />

American, Jack, or<br />

Swiss cheese. It’s a<br />

tasty mouthful and a<br />

great precursor to their<br />

even tastier desserts!<br />

PRO TIP: Add an extra<br />

patty or pastrami (extra<br />

charge) to really “beef”<br />

up your burger.<br />

The Downtown Burger,<br />

stuffed with three types of<br />

meat, from Goose Port<br />

Public House is every<br />

carnivore’s dream. An<br />

entire third of a pound of<br />

Angus chuck means one<br />

juicy patty; slabs of bacon<br />

add a smoky note, and<br />

pulled pork smothered in<br />

BBQ sauce is thrown in<br />

for good measure. Topped<br />

with cheddar cheese and<br />

onion rings, this beauty is<br />

held together by a toasted<br />

bun with mild horseradish<br />

crème.<br />

PRO TIP: Check out Goose<br />

Port’s website for live<br />

events and UFC viewing<br />

The Redneck Burger offered<br />

at The Dive Burgers &<br />

Brews evokes a southern<br />

kitchen—on steroids. A burger is<br />

comfort food on its own but add<br />

fried green beans and redneck<br />

slaw to a freshly ground beef<br />

patty, and you’ve got downhome<br />

cooking on another level.<br />

Sautéed mushrooms, chopped<br />

bacon, and pickled jalapeños<br />

add more complexity to the<br />

flavor profile. For the finishing<br />

touches, cheddar cheese<br />

and “beast sauce” bring this<br />

mouthful together. Oh, and it’s<br />

served with swirl-shaped house<br />

fries that are to die for.<br />

PRO TIP: Get a handcrafted<br />

milkshake (topped with tons of<br />

whip cream) to slurp alongside<br />

your burger.<br />

La Provence Restaurant & Terrace delivers the<br />

French (fan)fare with its Provençal décor and plates, namely<br />

the Hamburger Provençal. Half a pound of Angus beef<br />

sits on a house-made bun topped with sweet, caramelized<br />

onions. If you’re a fan of said onions, upgrade your side to<br />

the French onion soup (extra charge), for if there’s anyone<br />

who’s mastered this soup, it’s them! Aside from the French,<br />

of course.<br />

PRO TIP: Skip the beer with your burger and opt for a<br />

Provençal wine. Their Tour de l’Isle Rouge is an elegant<br />

accompaniment to any meal—including burgers.<br />

For those times you’re keeping a close eye on your waistline, a turkey<br />

burger is a more health-conscious option. And The Phoenix from Rock-<br />

N-Fire proves it’s possible to make one that doesn’t skimp on flavor. Basil<br />

pesto, tangy olive tapenade, and balsamic glaze give this burger a unique<br />

Mediterranean flare. Tender baby spinach, tomatoes, and fresh red onions<br />

top off the Mediterranean masterpiece that’s sandwiched between a whole<br />

wheat bun (to really amp up the goodness).<br />

PRO TIP: There’s no such thing as too much pesto, so get double the fill with their<br />

addictingly delicious, garlicy, and oh-so-good pesto fries.<br />

1010 Riley Street, Suite 4, Folsom, 916-673-9474, rocknfirerestaurants.com<br />

You’ll die happy after indulging in the Death Sentence at That Dam<br />

Place. Not one but two grilled, six-ounce patties are topped with mayo,<br />

lettuce, tomato, bacon, fried onion rings, and cheese sauce on brioche;<br />

in other words, all of life’s greatest food pleasures in one big, happy bite.<br />

It’s massive, it’s mouthwatering, and it’s not fat-free, so come hungry<br />

and leave your guilt (and tight jeans) at the door.<br />

PRO TIP: It’s hard to find a lobstah roll ‘round these parts—especially one made<br />

right. Luckily, That Dam Place’s “The Last Meal” fits the bill—with big chunks of<br />

Maine lobster, lemon, tarragon, and creamy mayo on a split-top bun.<br />

Filet mignon is arguably the most tender of<br />

beef, and Angus chuck the juiciest; blend them<br />

together, along with short rib for a hearty beef<br />

flavor, and you have the recipe for serious<br />

burger success. Find this succulent patty on the<br />

Wise Villa Burger at Wise Villa Winery.<br />

Sticking to the notion that simplicity shines,<br />

they keep their garnishes simple—gooey white<br />

cheddar, crisp romaine, garden-fresh tomatoes,<br />

and sliced onions. The herby green goddess aioli<br />

that adorns the toasted bun seals the deal.<br />

PRO TIP: Pair this simple stunner with one of<br />

Wise Villa’s world-class wines—the Petite Sirah<br />

is recommended.<br />

4200 Wise Road, Lincoln, 916-543-0323,<br />

If you’re craving a simple, classic cheeseburger,<br />

head to Bennett’s Kitchen Bar Market<br />

for their Bennett’s Cheeseburger. This burger<br />

starts with an all-natural 100% chuck patty (the<br />

classic choice for hamburgers because of its<br />

higher fat ratio), ensuring lots of juicy goodness.<br />

Hand-torn iceberg brings the crunch and double<br />

Tillamook cheddar brings the sharpness this<br />

burger asks for. Fresh tomato and onion top things<br />

off, but we couldn’t forget about the Acme Bakery<br />

bun spread with house-made Thousand Island.<br />

PRO TIP: Vegetarians can swap the beef patty<br />

for a Beyond Meat patty.<br />

If you haven’t yet tried the novel burgers at<br />

Squeeze Burger—what are you waiting for? It’s<br />

almost a rite of passage in our neck of the woods.<br />

Touted as one of the best burgers in America by Guy<br />

Fieri, the Squeeze Burger is dressed to impress,<br />

with its cheese “skirt” and sesame seed-jeweled<br />

bun. Throw in some fresh tomatoes, lettuce, pickles,<br />

onions, mayo, and mustard, and you’ve got the<br />

ultimate burger experience. Caution: These burgers<br />

are not for the faint-hearted and may warrant an<br />

extra 30 minutes on the treadmill but are totally<br />

worth it!<br />

PRO TIP: They also have “no skirt” or “mini skirt”<br />

options (cheese—not clothing!) if you’re all<br />

cheese-d out.<br />

106 North Sunrise Avenue, Suite C1, Roseville, 916-<br />

Old Town Grill charbroils their free-range,<br />

grass-fed patties and accompanies them with<br />

vine-ripened tomatoes, dill pickles, red onions,<br />

and delectable Old Town spread. You must try<br />

their succulent Stuffed Burger that’s packed<br />

with whole-roasted garlic cloves (vampires<br />

begone!), mushroom, and feta. One bite and<br />

you won’t know what hit you! Strong flavors<br />

and ultimate satisfaction are guaranteed here.<br />

PRO TIP: Instead of fries, ask for their “side of the<br />

moment” that include grilled veggies or fresh<br />

fruit, to balance out all that meat.<br />

We love sliders—their smaller size makes them<br />

perfect for sharing and easier to eat. What do<br />

the numbers stand for in 50/1/50 Sliders?<br />

We’re glad you asked! Sienna blends 50%<br />

Kobe-style beef, 1% habanero pepper, and 50%<br />

bacon to create their distinctive patty. Melted<br />

habanero jack adds just the right amount of kick,<br />

crispy onion strings give a satisfying crunch,<br />

and house-made Thousand Island dressing<br />

brings the zest. Garnished with lettuce, tomato,<br />

and pickles, you’ll be ready to slide into a food<br />

coma after devouring these delicacies.<br />

PRO TIP: Wait for your sliders to arrive with a<br />

delicious Watermelon Basil Martini in hand.<br />

A beefless burger doesn’t have to be boring, as<br />

Relish Burger Bar proves. Their Moroccan<br />

Vegan Veggie Burger is far from bland, spicing<br />

up an already delicious five-ounce veggie patty<br />

with exotic Moroccan spices. Zucchini, roasted<br />

red peppers, and crunchy lettuce top off this<br />

veggie delight. It’s hard to say what the best part<br />

is, but it might just be the vegan pretzel bun—<br />

dense enough to keep your burger from falling<br />

apart but still soft as a cloud.<br />

PRO TIP: If you’re trying to cut back calories,<br />

order your burger “naked”—served over greens<br />

instead of in a bun.<br />

Granted, Land Ocean is known for their more upscale fare like filet<br />

can bring the oomph, with a large Kobe beef patty, crispy onion strings,<br />

bacon, sharp cheddar, and BBQ sauce. Don’t be fooled by the list of<br />

limited toppings either. LO dishes out a generous helping, so you best<br />

bring your appetite.<br />

PRO TIP: If you’re looking for a burger bite during happy hour, try their<br />

prime beef slider that offers the same quality and great taste.<br />

If you agree that every day should be “fry” day, then check out<br />

this list of our favorite fries found ‘round town.<br />

Samuel Horne’s Tavern is a Sutter<br />

Street staple—and their Shoestring Fries<br />

and old-school Tater Tots are always the<br />

talk of every table. Freshly fried, crispy,<br />

and salty, enjoy them as-is or topped with<br />

fun fixings like chili cheese or pork chili<br />

verde. 719 Sutter Street, Folsom, 916-293-<br />

8207, samhornes.com<br />

One bite of the lightly spiced,<br />

piping hot Sweet<br />

Potato Fries at<br />

The Purple<br />

Place Bar &<br />

Grill and you won’t<br />

be able to stop! Served<br />

with creamy ranch or blue<br />

cheese dressing, they’re<br />

sweet, salty, and seriously<br />

delicious. 363 Green Valley Road, El<br />

Dorado Hills, 916-933-2313, thepurp.com<br />

The Garlic Fries at Danette’s Brick<br />

Oven Pub—homemade, hand-cut<br />

tots tossed with a hefty helping of fresh<br />

garlic, olive oil, parsley, and asiago<br />

cheese—are potato perfection. Just<br />

make sure to pack a breath mint; these<br />

famous fries pack a pungent punch! 2875<br />

Ray Lawyer Drive, Placerville, 530-622-7420,<br />

The Chef’s Table serves up Pesto<br />

Fries—beer-battered tots topped with<br />

house-made pesto and shredded Swiss—<br />

that rise above the rest. Trust us when we<br />

say the reviews don’t lie. They really are<br />

“out of this world!” and the “best fries ever.”<br />

916-771-5656, thechefstablerocklin.com<br />

Forget frozen fries! The Handcut Fries at<br />

Solid Ground Brewing are as fresh<br />

as they come. After being cut, they’re<br />

blanched till soft and nearly cooked<br />

through, then chilled, and finally dunked<br />

in the deep fryer—ensuring an extra<br />

crispy crunch. Sprinkled with just the right<br />

amount of sea salt, they’re the perfect<br />

pairing alongside a pint. Just don’t forget<br />

to ask for a side of the chef’s house-made<br />

ranch. 552 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond<br />

Best Burgers!<br />

Krush Burger brings double the delight with the<br />

option to pick two mini burgers of your choice. They<br />

promise never-frozen Angus beef that’s cooked to<br />

order and freshly baked brioche buns that are handtoasted.<br />

If left to us, we’d pick the Cowbell Burger<br />

for its bacon, crispy onions, gouda cheese, and BBQ<br />

sauce; and the Buffalo Chicken Burger for its crispy<br />

chicken, country slaw, buffalo sauce, and buffalo blue<br />

cheese sauce. Throw in their sweet potato tots with<br />

ancho honey dipping sauce and you’re golden.<br />

PRO TIP: Ask for extra servings of sauce; they’re made<br />

in-house and add a ton of flavor.<br />

You wouldn’t expect big, bold burgers to come out of a Mexican restaurant’s<br />

kitchen, but Nixtaco isn’t your ordinary eatery. Known for their namesake<br />

tacos featuring scratch-made corn tortillas topped with all kinds of creative<br />

combos, their Nixtaco Burger has become just as beloved. Currently offered as<br />

a special on weekends and while supplies last throughout the week (check their<br />

social media channels for updates and availability), the drool-inducing burger<br />

boasts certified Angus beef (ground in-house), cheddar cheese, peppery arugula,<br />

and grilled onions on house-baked buttery brioche. The high-quality ingredients<br />

and attention to cooking detail make it just one more reason to celebrate the<br />

weekend’s arrival.<br />

PRO TIP: Make it a true happy meal by ordering one of their 30-plus craft beers; from<br />

sours and stouts, to IPAs, ambers, and ales, there’s something to satisfy everyone.<br />

1805 Cirby Way, Suite 12, Roseville, 916-771-4165, nixta.co<br />

The Bruiser from Buck & Sadie’s won’t hurt you,<br />

but it does pack a punch of flavor. Their patty, made<br />

of 100% Angus beef, sizzles on a flattop, creating a<br />

decadent crust reminiscent of an old-fashioned<br />

burger. Their choice of cheese is anything but oldfashioned<br />

though; they add the sharp, piquant flavor of<br />

blue cheese to spice up traditional fixings (fresh lettuce,<br />

sliced onions, and ripe tomatoes). Closed up in the<br />

buttery goodness of a brioche bun smeared with their<br />

house Shanty sauce, this burger comes to your table<br />

skewered with a gherkin.<br />

PRO TIP: Looking to go bun-less? Choose a lettuce<br />

wrap instead.<br />

Mooyah Burgers, Fries<br />

& Shakes has some of<br />

the best buns—let alone<br />

burgers—in town, and if<br />

you’re a bun connoisseur, we<br />

suggest you try their artisan<br />

potato or multigrain options.<br />

Aside from their popular<br />

cheeseburgers, they also<br />

cater to the vegan, paleo,<br />

keto, and calorie-conscious<br />

among us with their “lifestyle<br />

burgers.” We’ve tried a few,<br />

and the Vegan Burger (black<br />

bean patty, avocado, sautéed<br />

mushrooms, grilled onions,<br />

lettuce, tomato, and BBQ<br />

sauce on a potato bun) is one<br />

of the good ones. Although,<br />

with so many options, it’s<br />

hard to go wrong here.<br />

PRO TIP: De-veganize<br />

your meal with their green<br />

chile queso (extra charge).<br />

Whether slathered on your<br />

burger or fries, it’s truly<br />

addictive.<br />

5194 Commons Drive, Suite<br />

Bones Roadhouse in Placerville has relaxed,<br />

unassuming bar vibes and their service and food are<br />

as warm and welcoming as it gets. Try their muchloved<br />

Cheeseburger that comes with a special<br />

Bones sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and raw or grilled<br />

onions (get the grilled onions to level-up the flavor<br />

profile). Another must-have at this joint is a cold beer<br />

(no tepid suds here!) so don’t skip it.<br />

PRO TIP: Sub your fries for any of these fried<br />

foods: onion rings (they’ve really perfected these),<br />

“hotzarella” sticks, deep fried mushrooms, pickle<br />

spears, and more.<br />

Moo-ve over, burgers! Sliders are here to stay! One<br />

bite of the King’s Meats Dry Aged Sliders at<br />

Heyday Café, and you’ll immediately ask yourself<br />

why you didn’t try them sooner. Two, three-ounce<br />

patties (freshly ground at King’s Meats in Diamond<br />

Springs) are topped with triple cream brie, sautéed<br />

mushrooms, cherry tomato mustarda (essentially<br />

fancier, tastier ketchup), and micro greens.<br />

Sandwiched into pillowy brioche, these bite-sized<br />

beauties pack a seriously delicious punch.<br />

PRO TIP: Save room for one of Heyday’s decadent<br />

house-made desserts. We hear the Ghirardelli<br />

chocolate brownie with vanilla gelato makes a perfect<br />

post-slider pairing.<br />

One of the most common<br />

compliments I hear about<br />

my practice is that I have a<br />

wonderful staff, and I couldn't<br />

agree more. These amazing women that<br />

I work with every day are incredibly<br />

smart and extremely talented in their<br />

own individual ways. Without them our<br />

business wouldn’t be what it is, a highly<br />

rated and successful company that is always<br />

eager to help others. My staff empower<br />

each other and our patients throughout<br />

each day and I am lucky to have them here<br />

at The Almonte Center. The decision to<br />

undergo plastic surgery is a significant one.<br />

Mimi Sato-Re, M.D. Family Medicine<br />

1216 Suncast Ln., Ste 1 // El Dorado Hills // 916-292-9777<br />

Caring for patients for over 25 years as a family<br />

practice physician has been very rewarding to me.<br />

Augmenting my traditional medicine practice<br />

with functional and regenerative medicine has<br />

inspired me to find the root cause of patients’ illnesses while<br />

also bringing them to their optimal health from the inside<br />

out. Feeling well is the primary goal. I have incorporated<br />

many modalities to keep patients living lives to their fullest.<br />

Growing up in Hawaii, I enjoyed being in a naturally healthy<br />

environment and I found myself wanting to promote health<br />

in others. Becoming a physician, and traveling a path ranging<br />

from serving as President of my medical school class to<br />

serving as a Chief Resident of the U.C. Davis Department<br />

of Family and Community Medicine, allowed me to develop<br />

a solid foundation for having an active presence in the lives<br />

of my patients and finding deep satisfaction in seeing them<br />

thrive. In my practice, I promote attainment of key health<br />

objectives by encouraging, among other things, lifestyle<br />

changes, supplementation, energy medicine, low intensity<br />

extracorporeal shockwave therapy, platelet rich plasma,<br />

myofascial release therapy, PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic<br />

field therapy), and ION Cleanse to benefit and enrich my<br />

patients’ lives. Most recently, I have begun utilizing the<br />

OPUS microfractional plasma system to rejuvenate facial skin,<br />

bringing my patients even closer to optimal health, so that<br />

they can not only feel their best, but also look their best.<br />

skin care line, and licensed estheticians to their new<br />

location, Angella Darrington is proud to lead her<br />

team to success.<br />

“We want you moving and feeling better.”<br />

A Tranquil Space was a concept designed by<br />

Darrington, with both client and therapist in mind.<br />

Professionally trained staff focusing on the client as<br />

a whole; mind, body and skin, to help them reach<br />

their personal goals of a pain free and confident<br />

life. With a combined 30 years of experience, and<br />

numerous continuing education classes, Angella is<br />

confident she has helped create a powerhouse team<br />

to an anesthesiologist, she spent almost<br />

40 years in the operating room. She was<br />

exposed to critical care, trauma, obstetrics, lots of on<br />

call hours and sleepless nights. As she entered her<br />

50's she found her own health starting to decline<br />

and sought out a healthy aging physician. After<br />

experiencing the benefits she sought out the fellowship<br />

of regenerative and healthy aging through the<br />

American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.<br />

She opened an office in 2014 and continues to grow<br />

and expand her knowledge into this evolving field of<br />

medicine. Rather than prescribing medications and<br />

bandaging diseases she looks for the "root causes"<br />

and integrates each system in the body together. She<br />

also looks at environmental, genetic and lifestyle<br />

factors which result in "dis-ease". Her continued and<br />

expanding practice utilizes bioidentical hormone<br />

replacement, thyroid and adrenal optimization, GI<br />

healing, peptide therapy, ozone therapy, PRP hair<br />

therapy, as well as body contouring and weight<br />

management.<br />

In 2013, Kelli opened Leighton Dance Project<br />

with a vision to create a collaborative space<br />

for dancers of all ages and abilities. Since its<br />

humble beginnings, LDP has grown to be a<br />

local community leader in the arts, housing over 500<br />

students ranging in ages from 18 months to 18 years<br />

old. Kelli credits LDP’s success to her philosophy of<br />

far beyond LDP. She has led dance programs at<br />

numerous Sacramento studios and founded CORE<br />

Contemporary Dance, one of Sacramento's Premier<br />

Professional Dance Companies. Ultimately her passion<br />

led her back to owning her own studio, teaching young<br />

dancers to dream big.<br />

owner, Kelli is the proud mom of 4 young children,<br />

2-year-old twins boys, daughter 7, and oldest son<br />

Cummings Properties<br />

1625 Creekside Dr., #201 // Folsom<br />

916-984-7025 // wcc@cummingsprops.com<br />

Claudia Cummings has been a Community and Civic leader in Folsom<br />

for several decades. She and her late husband William have donated<br />

large sections of ground for to the city of Folsom including the bike<br />

trail on Creekside Drive, The Cummings Family Park and Skate<br />

Park and a portion of the land that Mercy Hospital of Folsom rests on today.<br />

Claudia and William also aided in the building of Mercy Hospital of Folsom<br />

Emergency Pavilion.<br />

Claudia was asked to sit on the board of the Folsom Economic Development<br />

Corporation, “Choose Folsom” and the Folsom Police Foundation. Her<br />

involvement with her partnership “Rancho Murieta Market Plaza” recently<br />

opened a Bel Air grocery store along with a bank, Starbucks, Taco Bell and<br />

other tenants. The underutilized shores of Lake Natoma and the American<br />

River have caught her attention also. She is now the chairwoman of the River<br />

District Organizing Committee. Her thoughts are “the Riverfront areas of<br />

Folsom are great assets that are not meeting the needs of the residents or visitors<br />

of Folsom”. The mission of her committee is to designate the land area adjacent<br />

to the American River and Lake Natoma as a special district and to support<br />

enhancement for current and future residents.<br />

Claudia’s philanthropic endeavors include the Folsom Historical Society, The<br />

Chan House, The Murer House, The Nevada Art Museum, The SF MOMA,<br />

The Crocker Art Gallery, Folsom Lake Symphony and Folsom Lake Civic<br />

Ballet. In her spare time Claudia owns part of CBT Deer Creek Vineyard, a<br />

landowner in Metro Air Park, and an active board member of the University<br />

Development Fund whose purpose is to land a four year private university to this<br />

area. She is truly a bundle of energy that the Eveready Bunny will never catch.<br />

Jennifer Tommasini<br />

The Gift of Kids Daycare and Preschool<br />

5130 Golden Foothill Pkwy. // El Dorado Hills // Business Park 1<br />

916-521-1835 // www.TheGiftOfKids.net<br />

Serving children ages 6wks-10years<br />

Infant Lic. 093616199 // Pre-School Lic. 093616198<br />

My name is Jennifer Tommasini, the owner/director of<br />

The Gift of Kids Daycare and Preschool. I’ve lived in<br />

El Dorado Hills for 19 years and I have four children.<br />

My journey into the childcare field began in 1999<br />

when I was left disappointed in my search for ”the right” childcare<br />

for my son. After going through many programs and with my<br />

daughter on the way (now attending Chico State), I began to reflect<br />

upon my family’s needs. It was then that I changed my career focus<br />

and ventured into childcare. My mission is to provide a nurturing,<br />

loving, safe and educational environment for every child.<br />

On June 10, 2000, I opened my home to three newborns, two<br />

2-year-olds and a 3-year-old. I immediately knew that this was<br />

my calling. Everything felt so natural. I went back to school full<br />

time for early childhood education and started my own preschool<br />

program that incorporated home-cooked meals, planned outings,<br />

and practiced an advanced curriculum with structured activities that<br />

fostered learning.<br />

In 2007 I opened a small pre-school with 60 families while<br />

continuing my in-home daycare. In 2010 I expanded again, bringing<br />

my preschool and in home-daycare under one roof - The Gift of<br />

Kids Daycare and Preschool. It has been a dream to serve so many<br />

children and give families the satisfaction I never felt when my son<br />

was in daycare. I pride myself on offering a safe place for families to<br />

bring their children.<br />

The Gift of Kids currently has 32 wonderful, loving, professional<br />

teachers and over 200 children. We provide care for infants,<br />

preschoolers and private kindergarten. Although the size seems<br />

large, the classrooms have a homey feel where the teachers<br />

truly care about each child’s development. We work together on<br />

communicating with parents and developing each child’s individual<br />

needs. It delights me that so many children have the opportunity to<br />

experience our program.<br />

Even now during this challenging time we have served our<br />

community with cautiion and all safety measures in place.<br />

Bonnie Bernstein has been the owner of Little Folks University<br />

for 15 years. Her business was built by an amazing woman with<br />

the support of her incredible husband. Little Folks University<br />

is especially dear to her heart having worked in childcare for<br />

three decades. While youth are our future, Bonnie believes the educators<br />

are the symbol of our community's true strength. LFU is proud of its youth<br />

sponsorships in local sports as well as Folsom's Eggstravaganza each Easter.<br />

Folsom Zoo, Police, Firefighters and multiple other organizations are yearly<br />

recipients of their fundraisers as well. Empowering a community empowers<br />

its residents and shapes its future.<br />

The staff at LFU has been carefully chosen and come from many walks<br />

of life. Some are on the road to become psychologists, public school<br />

teachers and nurses. Bonnie believes having a place that accepts varying<br />

personalities with countless strengths enables them to empower one<br />

another and continuously grow. Yearly work retreats focus on team<br />

building combining research, fun, and even the occasional unknown to<br />

create an environment where they are constantly growing, improving,<br />

becoming the best version of themselves.<br />

A person with true strength never uses what they have been through as<br />

an excuse, but a drive to be better. LFU is a place for women to follow<br />

and learn their own strengths, adjust when necessary, and grow to be the<br />

best educators they can be. A strong team lifts each other to heights that<br />

once seemed unattainable, and the group of women at LFU all strive<br />

daily towards excellence. Every woman deserves to find a safe place to<br />

grow and be their best.<br />

"Every woman's success should be an inspiration to another. We're strongest when<br />

we cheer each other on."—Serena Williams<br />

Everyday<br />

Adventures<br />

Go Global…But Stay Local BY SUZIE DUNDAS<br />

Anyone with the travel bug has likely been feeling a bit antsy since the start<br />

of COVID-19, but international explorers are probably missing one aspect of<br />

travel in particular: global cultures.<br />

Miraflores Winery<br />

One of the most significant parts of<br />

any new culture is the food: trying new<br />

dishes, learning about local spices, and<br />

determining which exotic foods you can<br />

recreate at home and which are a bit<br />

too outside of your comfort zone (spicy<br />

Oaxacan grasshoppers, anyone?) And<br />

there’s nothing like walking down the<br />

street in a foreign country and observing<br />

the language, art, and customs of the<br />

city’s locals.<br />

Fortunately, area residents are lucky: There's<br />

no shortage of international influence at<br />

our doorstep. Check out the restaurants,<br />

cultural centers, and businesses below if a<br />

year of staying at home has you aching for<br />

an affogato or bonsai fix.<br />

ITALY<br />

Italian cuisine is some of the most accessible<br />

in the U.S., but authentic Italian, well, that<br />

can be harder to find. Chefs at restaurants<br />

in Italy know that some noodles pair better<br />

with certain sauces and that they should pick<br />

herbs just a few minutes before use. And the<br />

art is just as inspiring as the food—after all,<br />

who hasn’t felt a sense of awe when standing<br />

in front of Michelangelo's David or gazing at a<br />

Roman floor-to-ceiling tile mural?<br />

• Vaiano Trattoria specializes in Tuscan<br />

cuisine: simple, flavorful dishes with<br />

healthy doses of tasty olive oils, including<br />

zuppa di fagioli (a rustic white bean soup)<br />

• We all know Italians take their cuisine seriously, but drinks are<br />

equally as important. In addition to authentically prepared<br />

plates of pasta, Visconti’s Ristorante also shakes up some<br />

fierce cocktails, like their namesake Visconti’s Sicilian Kiss with<br />

Maker’s Mark bourbon, amaretto, and DeKuyper Peachtree<br />

schnapps. 2700 East Bidwell Street, Suite 700, Folsom, 916-983-5181,<br />

• Step inside the Miraflores Winery tasting room and you might<br />

feel like you're in a wine cellar in Central Italy. If what you're<br />

missing most about Italy is the wine, stop by the vineyard to chat<br />

Muscat Canelli or red blends. 2120 Four Springs Trail, Placerville,<br />

MEXICO<br />

Mexico is a broad category—after all, it's a sprawling country—but<br />

unfortunately, Mexican cuisine in the U.S. all too often gets reduced to<br />

Tex-Mex and prepackaged margarita mix. Fortunately, California has<br />

some of the country's best authentic Mexican food, along with some<br />

of the best places to brush up on your Spanish skills. Plus, more than<br />

a quarter of Californians speak Spanish at home or work, so it’s quite<br />

Dining Out<br />

Pho Ga<br />

Pho Mimi<br />


On one of our area's late winter, faux-spring days, I felt the need for a<br />

soul-warming bowl of chicken noodle soup—Vietnamese style. You<br />

know the one: pho (pronounced fuh), Vietnam’s national dish whose<br />

beef-based versions boast a bone broth cooked for hours with star<br />

anise, ginger, fish sauce, and a few other conspirators, alongside rice<br />

noodles, herbs, and meat. When combined, the resulting bowl of<br />

pure umami is incomparable to other noodle soups.<br />

I was prepared to eat to-go in my car, or perhaps in a park somewhere, but as luck<br />

would have it, Pho Mimi was allowing indoor dining. I decided to sample several items,<br />

beginning with their fish sauce-glazed chicken wings. To my surprise (and a little<br />

concern), the wings came out in minutes and were quite good: lightly coated with just<br />

the right amount of salty/sweet sauce and crispiness to make me ponder how they were<br />

cooked so quickly.<br />

PHO HOUSE.<br />

”<br />

Báhn Mi<br />

Chicken Wings<br />

I wanted to try one of my other Vietnamese favorites, bún thit nuáng (rice<br />

vermicelli with grilled meat) or #33 at Pho Mimi. I ordered the pork, and it was<br />

fantastic. The combination of marinade ingredients<br />

(lemongrass, fish sauce, and sweet, thick soy<br />

sauce) and pork charred over an open flame was<br />

irresistible. Served atop rice noodles with pickled<br />

carrots and daikon threads, lightly crushed peanuts,<br />

and cilantro, it’s one of the most underrated dishes<br />

(if done right) at any pho house.<br />

Next, a sandwich that has garnered a lot of<br />

attention but rarely lives up to the hype (at least<br />

in our area): báhn mi. Pho Mimi's offering was a<br />

contender for best in the region. The fresh-baked<br />

bread was soft inside with a slight crunch outside,<br />

and included the same delicious pork as the #33,<br />

plus pickled vegetables, jalapeños for a hint of heat,<br />

and mayo…definitely not a subpar sub.<br />

And now for the main event: Pho Mimi’s pho ga<br />

or chicken pho (#27). The dish was good with plenty<br />

of tender, sliced chicken breast, rice noodles, green<br />

onions, and accouterments (basil, bean sprouts,<br />

jalapeños, and cilantro), but it boasted a more<br />

subtle broth than I would have preferred. <strong>May</strong>be<br />

next time I’ll order one of the beef-based soups, as<br />

customers rave about the full-flavored richness of<br />

that particular, and more quintessential, pho broth.<br />

It's great to find another local, family-owned place that<br />

serves quality Vietnamese food; stop in and try a few of their<br />

healthy offerings. You'll be glad you did.<br />

Bagel & Bean // Another brave pair of entrepreneurs have decided to say “Now’s the time!” and open<br />

their business, despite the crazy COVID-19 climate we’ve endured the past year. And judging by the response,<br />

Bagel & Bean owners Cory and Heather Smart’s gamble has been a success. Their morning rush consists<br />

of lines out the door, and lunchtime is only slightly less busy. The reason for all of their sudden popularity is<br />

two-fold: quality bagels and Heather’s knowledge of the restaurant industry, which has helped guide them<br />

through an uncertain path of shutdowns and mandates. Cory didn’t just jump into the bagel business and<br />

start selling someone else’s product; being a trained chef made the transition to baker easier, although not<br />

without research and some trial and error. Seriously, these are the best bagels I’ve ever had, bar none. Couple<br />

a fantastic bagel with the “bagel-wich” (bagel sandwich) concept they loved from a spot in Humbolt County,<br />

throw in some cheffy touches, and you’ve got a success story unfolding in our neighborhood. I sampled a few<br />

sandwiches from their “Local Favorites” selection and wish I could’ve tried more: Veg Out (fresh-baked<br />

bagel topped with avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, carrots, and sprouts, topped with toasted<br />

everything bagel seasoning; Pepperoni Pizza (marinara, mozzarella, and pepperoni on the bagel of your<br />

choice), and Thai (peanut butter, cucumbers, carrots, jalapeño jelly, and green onions with your choice<br />

of bagel). All were delicious and huge. B&B also sells their house-made cream cheeses to<br />

go. Check their online menu for bagel selections (in addition to the classics, there’s often<br />

funky flavors, too, like Fruity Pebbles, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and French Toast Crunch) and<br />

5 Buzzworthy IPAs<br />

Hoppy, high in alcohol, and brimming with bitterness, West<br />

Coast IPAs (India pale ales) are the crowd pleasers of craft<br />

beer—especially here in sunny California. Keep reading for<br />

five of our favorites.<br />

Cogzilla<br />

ABV: 8.5%<br />

BREWED BY: *GearTooth<br />

Alewerks, 7553 Green<br />

Valley Road, Placerville,<br />

geartoothalewerks.com,<br />

@geartoothales<br />


GearTooth’s flagship West<br />

Coast double IPA fills the glass<br />

with a crisp golden hue and<br />

is as balanced as a pale ale.<br />

Generously dry-hopped with<br />

Mosaic, Citra, and Centennial,<br />

the hops erupt into a medley<br />

of citrus and stone fruit flavors<br />

that give way to notes of<br />

resinous pine from Magnum<br />

and Columbus in the boil.<br />

*Tasting room and restaurant is<br />

scheduled to open this summer.<br />


Angry Eagle<br />

ABV: 8.3%<br />

BREWED BY: Movement Brewing Company,<br />

11151 Trade Center Drive, Suite 104, Rancho Cordova,<br />

916-389-0046, movementbrewingco.com,<br />

@movementbrewing, @movementbrewingco<br />

TASTING NOTES: Bright, crisp, and clean, this<br />

double West Coast IPA is a crowd-pleaser. Heavily<br />

dry hopped with Centennial and Simcoe hops to layer<br />

flavors of citrus with dank and pine character, it stays<br />

true to its West Coast title and is bitter yet balanced.<br />

SR16<br />

ABV: 8.5%<br />

BREWED BY: Crooked<br />

Lane Brewing Company,<br />

536 Grass Valley Highway,<br />

Auburn, 530-878-5232,<br />

crookedlanebrewing.com,<br />

@crookedlanebrewing<br />


fan favorite since day<br />

one, SR16—a double<br />

IPA that drinks like a<br />

single—features Citra<br />

and Amarillo hops<br />

complemented by a touch<br />

of malt complexity with<br />

a crisp, dry finish. The<br />

bitterness balances out<br />

the sweetness from its<br />

high ABV, resulting in<br />

one of the most drinkable<br />

double IPAs around.<br />

Socket Set<br />

ABV: 6.8%<br />

BREWED BY: Red Bus Brewing, 802A Reading Street, Folsom,<br />

916-467-7790, redbusbrew.com, @redbusbrew<br />

TASTING NOTES: The West Coast version of Red Bus' famous Jetronic<br />

Haze IPA, this beloved beer is loaded with Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado<br />

hops, giving it notes of grapefruit and pineapple with a moderate hop finish.<br />

Call of Lupulhu<br />

ABV: 8.5%<br />

BREWED BY: Big Sexy Brewing Company,<br />

5861 88th Street, Suite 800, Sacramento,<br />

833-310-4777, bigsexybrewing.com,<br />

@bigsexybrewco, @bigsexybrewing<br />

TASTING NOTES: Pronounced "loop-uhloo,"<br />

this West Coast-style double IPA is<br />

fresh off its Gold Medal win at the 2020 U.S.<br />

Beer Open Championship. Piney, it offers<br />

notes of pineapple, citrus, and tropical fruits,<br />

but don't let the smooth, well-balanced<br />

flavors fool you: It packs a boozy punch!<br />

• The seat should be adjusted to<br />

the proper height and locked<br />

in place.<br />

• Make sure all parts are secure<br />

and working correctly.<br />

• Check that the tires are<br />

inflated properly.<br />

• Make sure the bike is equipped<br />

with reflectors on the rear,<br />

front, pedals, and spokes.<br />

• A horn or bell, rear-view mirror,<br />

and bright headlight also are<br />

recommended.<br />


• Wear neon, fluorescent, or<br />

other bright clothing.<br />

• Whenever possible, ride during<br />

the day.<br />

• If you must ride at night, wear<br />

reflective clothing and use<br />

flashing lights.<br />

• Wear a helmet (on every bike<br />

ride, regardless of length, and<br />

make sure it’s certified by<br />

the Consumer Product Safety<br />

Commission and fits correctly).<br />



• Ride single-file in the direction<br />

of traffic.<br />

• Remain alert, keep your head<br />

up and look around; watch for<br />

opening car doors and other<br />

hazards.<br />

• Use hand signals when turning<br />

and extra care at intersections.<br />

• Never hitch onto cars.<br />

• Before entering traffic, stop<br />

and look left, right, left again<br />

and over your shoulder.<br />

“I love riding in this area, because in 30 minutes or less you<br />

can access all sorts of terrain, year-round. You can ride<br />

steep downhills, technical cross-country routes, or hop on<br />

the road and explore the rolling foothills.”<br />
