Style Magazine - June 2022

Whether it’s groovy tunes, a cold beverage, or verdant flora, we’ve got a plethora of options for you to cool down with. Just turn to this month’s “Summer Blast” feature (page 58) for all the wonderful ways to make this season memorable (and bearable), written by the ever-witty Sharon Penny. We continue keeping it cool (take a shot every time I say “cool/cold/summer!”) with Lorn Randall’s list of Light Beers on page 80 and our travel piece on State Parks (page 74) by local travel expert, Dannah Nielsen. If you’re ready for some action, read our publisher Terry Carroll’s piece on Pickleball (page 38), the most happening sport right now for anyone with decent hand-eye coordination. And if you just want to bum around at home, Emily Peter-Corey’s got you covered with her selection of Entertaining Essentials (page 42). We’re also shining the spotlight this month on organizations that support our LGBTQ+ population. Of course, this is in honor of pride month, but it’s also because of the chilling statistics about rising LGBTQ+ suicides in the country. This is the least we can do as a magazine to direct people—especially our LGBTQ+ youth—in the right direction. I think I’ve covered the gamut of what we have in this issue and I’m proud of all of it. We work very hard to bring you the best content every month so I hope you will take some time to flip through these pages, margarita, beer or iced tea in hand, and raise a toast with us to the best summer ever. Cheers! —Tara Mendanha tara@stylemg.com

| editor’s letter |<br />

If you couldn’t tell by that garland of sweat forming around your neck—<br />

summer’s here! Now, don’t get me wrong, I love me some warm weather,<br />

cute cotton clothes, all the ice-cold drinks I can carry with two hands, and<br />

general fun in the sun. But even a summer-lovin’ gal’s got to cool off a bit.<br />

Since summer is so fleeting—<br />

for me at least—I always strive to<br />

make the most of it. Whether it’s<br />

family reunions, ambitious road-trips,<br />

or just exploring where we live, I try to<br />

make it memorable. When the pandemic<br />

hit, it was really hard to stay confined<br />

and I’m pretty sure the isolation got to my<br />

mental health (as it did with a lot of us).<br />

Which is why, I don’t take summers for<br />

granted (or any season, for that matter).<br />

Because you never know when the world<br />

is going to change and doom you to a<br />

summer-less existence.<br />

Cruisin' on Lake Natoma<br />

On that cheerful note (!) don’t blame<br />

us (and by “us” I mean our entire team<br />

that’s eagerly waiting to have a nice-weather-get-together) if we go looking to stave off<br />

the impending dog days of summer with whatever distraction we can get our hands on.<br />

Whether it’s groovy tunes, a cold beverage, or verdant<br />

flora, we’ve got a plethora of options for you to cool<br />

“It was <strong>June</strong>,<br />

down with. Just turn to this month’s “Summer Blast”<br />

and the<br />

feature (page 58) for all the wonderful ways to make<br />

this season memorable (and bearable), written by the<br />

world smelled<br />

ever-witty Sharon Penny.<br />

of roses.<br />

We continue keeping it cool (take a shot every time<br />

I say “cool/cold/summer!”) with Lorn Randall’s list of<br />

The sunshine<br />

Light Beers on page 80 and our travel piece on State<br />

was like Parks (page 74) by local travel expert, Dannah Nielsen.<br />

If you’re ready for some action, read our publisher<br />

powdered<br />

Terry Carroll’s piece on Pickleball (page 38), the most<br />

gold over happening sport right now for anyone with decent<br />

hand-eye coordination. And if you just want to bum<br />

the grssy<br />

around at home, Emily Peter-Corey’s got you covered<br />

hillside.” with her selection of Entertaining Essentials (page 42).<br />

—Maud Hart Lovelace We’re also shining the spotlight this month on<br />

organizations that support our LGBTQ+ population.<br />

Of course, this is in honor of pride month, but it’s<br />

also because of the chilling statistics about rising LGBTQ+ suicides in the country.<br />

This is the least we can do as a magazine to direct people—especially our LGBTQ+<br />

youth—in the right direction.<br />

I think I’ve covered the gamut of what we have in this issue and I’m proud of all of<br />

it. We work very hard to bring you the best content every month so I hope you will<br />

take some time to flip through these pages, margarita, beer or iced tea in hand, and<br />

raise a toast with us to the best summer ever. Cheers!<br />

What’s your<br />

fondest<br />

memory of<br />

summer?<br />

“I grew up on a street filled with kids, so<br />

summer reminds me of all of them and<br />

the hours we spent outside. We'd all<br />

play tag together, or watch the boys<br />

play football or wiffleball, or I'd be<br />

playing "house" or "teacher" with my<br />

next-door neighbor. But we always<br />

stopped what we were doing when<br />

the ice cream man drove down our<br />

street!” —Emily Peter-Corey<br />

“My birthday falls in the summer in<br />

August, so when I celebrated my 50th<br />

birthday, I parachuted out of a plane at<br />

15,000 feet. It’s hard to top that summer<br />

memory!” —Bettie Grijalva<br />

“My best childhood memories of summer<br />

include gobbling up sweet mangoes,<br />

playing by the beach, and making new<br />

friends. (How was it so easy to make<br />

friends back then?) As an adult, I’ve<br />

made some epic road trips across U.S.<br />

national parks with my husband over<br />

summer.”—Tara Mendanha<br />

“My fondest memories of summer were the<br />

afternoons at my grandma's house as a<br />

kid. She always left her door open to<br />

visitors. My cousins and I would end<br />

up spending half our summers playing<br />

Mario Kart in her living room or burning<br />

our bare feet on the hot stone in her<br />

backyard in a mad dash for her pool.”<br />

—Ray Burgess<br />

“I always loved summer growing up<br />

because my birthday falls on the first day<br />

of summer and I fondly remember pool<br />

birthday parties as a kid. Admittedly,<br />

now, I love the idea of summer, but the<br />

100-degree heat doesn’t turn me on!”<br />

—Wendy Sipple<br />

“All my summers growing up as a child<br />

and young adult were consumed with<br />

playing baseball. Every beginning of<br />

summer I could not wait to start the<br />

season. The smell of the fresh cut<br />

grass, to the dirt caked all over my<br />

uniform. I miss it all so much.<br />

—Gary Zsigo<br />

4 Rad Dads<br />

get to know<br />

by EMILY PETER-COREY<br />

Dads do it all: from<br />

teaching and coaching to<br />

snuggling and adventuring,<br />

there’s no one like Dad<br />

to lift you up with a piece<br />

of advice or a corny dad<br />

joke. Read on for four<br />

fatherhood journeys in<br />

celebration of Father’s Day<br />

on <strong>June</strong> 19.<br />

Happy Father’s Day!<br />

Dave Sacco<br />

dad of three<br />

Dave has been in<br />

business with his<br />

brother Anthony<br />

since 2004 at Sacco & Sacco Insurance<br />

Brokers, LLC (saccoins.com) and he's<br />

been a father since 2011. He and wife<br />

Monique have three daughters: Natalie<br />

(11) and twins Camille and Elizabeth<br />

(7). A true family man, Dave is also a<br />

giving community member: He has<br />

been an active member of the Rotary<br />

Club of Historic Folsom for 12 years, and<br />

currently serves as President. He also<br />

coaches his younger daughters’ soccer<br />

team, and plans to summit Mt. Whitney<br />

this year for a second time.<br />

Describe your foray into fatherhood.<br />

My wife and I were married for four years<br />

before having our first daughter. It was<br />

another three years before we had our<br />

twins. Having three girls has showed me<br />

how important patience and empathy are<br />

to raising strong-willed children.<br />

What’s your parenting style? My wife<br />

and I are supportive of our children. We<br />

give them opportunities to help them<br />

figure out what activities interest them<br />

like gymnastics, track, soccer, tennis,<br />

basketball, art, and dance. We also do<br />

our best to provide a nurturing home<br />

environment, so they can do well in school<br />

and become a positive force in this world.<br />

How has fatherhood changed you? I take<br />

more time to get to know people before<br />

passing judgement. My priorities have<br />

definitely changed. I value my relationships<br />

with my friends and family more than ever.<br />

What life lessons do you hope to impart<br />

to your children? I hope my children grow<br />

up to understand that the world is bigger<br />

than they think. The most important thing<br />

is not what others think of them, but what<br />

they do to help improve the lives of other<br />

people. I also want them to know that<br />

“family” can include close friends who you<br />

can depend on whenever you need them,<br />

or they need you.<br />

Q&A<br />

Best part about being a dad: Knowing I<br />

have three kids that love me more than<br />

anything.<br />

Favorite activity to do with the kids: Anything<br />

that makes them laugh and smile.<br />

Your ultimate dad superpower: I make<br />

awesome pancakes.<br />

Best dad advice: Be patient and try not to<br />

lose your temper in front of your kids.<br />

When the going gets tough… Relax.<br />

Everything will work out.<br />

get to know<br />

Steve Heard<br />

dad of two<br />

A realtor and<br />

active community<br />

member, Steve,<br />

and wife Rosemary, have two daughters:<br />

Jennifer (34) and Stephanie (29) along<br />

with two grandsons. He has been the<br />

Chair of the Folsom Arts & Culture<br />

Commission, a board member of<br />

the Folsom Cordova Community<br />

Partnership, served as a mentor to<br />

children of incarcerated parents through<br />

Roots and Horizons, and currently serves<br />

as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors<br />

for the Folsom Chamber of Commerce.<br />

In his spare time (yes, he does have<br />

some), Steve enjoys local trails, wineries,<br />

and concerts.<br />

Describe your foray into fatherhood.<br />

When my first child was born, I went from<br />

wild and free to super dad seemingly<br />

overnight. All of a sudden, the world didn't<br />

revolve around me, and I had to think of<br />

this beautiful little girl who was depending<br />

on me. Little by little, I followed the lessons<br />

my father had taught me simply by doing.<br />

I became more patient, kind, and started<br />

telling dad jokes.<br />

What’s your parenting style? I believe in<br />

pumping a kid with positive messages,<br />

showering them with affection, having high<br />

expectations, and knowing that they are<br />

more than capable. I always told them I'll<br />

never be disappointed if they sincerely try,<br />

and from childhood to this very day, I want<br />

my daughters to know that they always<br />

have a safe place to land in my home.<br />

How has fatherhood changed you? It<br />

made me more patient, gentler, gave me<br />

perspective and appreciation for life, and<br />

dare I say it, made me even more hilarious<br />

than ever.<br />

What life lessons do you hope to impart<br />

to your children? The importance of being<br />

good to themselves, their family, and<br />

the world. I want them to focus more on<br />

happiness and family than on winning or<br />

conquering.<br />

Q&A<br />

Best part about being a dad: The love I share<br />

with my kids and grandkids. I am blessed<br />

to know that my kids always want to hang<br />

out with the old man.<br />

Favorite activity to do with the kids: With the<br />

grown ones, food and wine adventures.<br />

With the grandsons, parks, ice cream<br />

missions, toys, and dancing.<br />

Your ultimate dad superpower: I hope it's<br />

soothing a sad or worried heart. I always<br />

listen with an open mind and try to give<br />

perspectives and assurances they may not<br />

have thought of. And jokes.<br />

Best dad advice: For dads: Listen,<br />

encourage, indulge, and support your kids.<br />

They will have their fill of people who don't.<br />

When the going gets tough… Remain<br />

calm, take a step back and look at the big<br />

picture, take responsibility for your role,<br />

then do what's best.<br />

Adam Abramowski<br />

dad of one<br />

Adam hails<br />

from Poland and<br />

owns Adam’s<br />

Meat Shop (adamsmeatshop.com)<br />

in Folsom along with his new endeavor<br />

Adam’s Sausage Factory in Rancho<br />

Cordova. When not at work, he helps<br />

the community through Friends of<br />

Folsom and volunteers at schools and<br />

with sports teams. But the biggest<br />

accomplishment in his life is being<br />

a father to his and wife Odette’s son,<br />

Logan (7).<br />

Describe your foray into fatherhood.<br />

It was love at first sight with my son and<br />

as soon as I saw him, I knew my life is<br />

changed. Also, cliché as it sounds, you<br />

never really understood the love your<br />

parents had for you until you become one.<br />

What’s your parenting style? As I am very<br />

easygoing, my parenting style is similar. I let<br />

my son try and explore even if deep inside<br />

I am terrified and just want to be protective.<br />

My dad was very hands-on and taught me<br />

a lot of skills for fixing things at home, and<br />

I try to do the same with my son. He (still)<br />

loves tagging along when we have to fix<br />

cars or motorcycles or just to do any yard<br />

work outside.<br />

How has fatherhood changed you? I am<br />

very mindful of what I do because I know<br />

that there is a little person looking up to<br />

me, so I try to be a dad that my son will be<br />

proud of. I feel like I have acquired a great<br />

deal of patience that I never knew I had<br />

in me. I never really imagined that going<br />

to sleep at night would mean reading the<br />

same book three times just because my<br />

son loves it so much.<br />

What life lessons do you hope to impart<br />

to your child? At his age right now, my son<br />

would tell me what he wants to be when<br />

he grows up one day and that changes<br />

all the time. One day he wants to be an<br />

astronaut, the next day he wants to be<br />

an artist. I always tell him that he can be<br />

whatever he wants to be as long as he<br />

works hard for it. There is no shame in<br />

failure—you get up and try again.<br />

Q&A<br />

Best part about being a dad: The funny<br />

stories, snuggles and precious little<br />

moments that I cherish the most. Seeing<br />

my son’s first steps, hearing his first words,<br />

his first bike ride, first day at school,<br />

watching his first home run—those are the<br />

moments that I live for!<br />

Favorite activity to do with your son:<br />

Going outdoors for a bike or motorcycle<br />

ride, going to the lake or beach, and<br />

camping. Any time just spent with my<br />

son, even just going to a carwash or out<br />

to eat chicken wings!<br />

Your ultimate dad superpower: My son thinks<br />

I can fix anything!<br />

Best dad advice: You can be whatever you<br />

want to be as long as you work hard for it.<br />

When the going gets tough… Just keep<br />

swimming!<br />

Tim Purkis<br />

dad of four<br />

Tim was born<br />

in Belgium, raised<br />

in Holland, and<br />

immigrated to the U.S. when he was<br />

14. Learning English in middle school<br />

proved difficult, but he gained a love<br />

for teaching and eventually earned a<br />

master’s degree in distance learning.<br />

He has kept a busy career in sales, but<br />

still finds time to give back. Due to the<br />

early arrival of their twins, Tim and wife<br />

Elaine started the non-profit, Friends of<br />

NICU (friendsofnicu.org). Their mission is<br />

to help families spends more time with<br />

their sick babies.<br />

Describe your foray into fatherhood.<br />

When my wife and I were dating, we<br />

talked about wanting a big family<br />

should things work out between us.<br />

We both said that four would be a<br />

nice number. Our firstborn, Kevin (18),<br />

arrived on Mother’s Day, 2003—perfect<br />

pregnancy and delivery. Our twins, Matt<br />

and Ryan (16), arrived 10 weeks early and<br />

spent 10 weeks in the Neonatal Intensive<br />

Care Unit, and our last one, Jacob<br />

(13), was delivered exactly on time.<br />

Perfect analogy for parenting: Constant<br />

rollercoaster ride and you never know<br />

what to expect or which end is up! In the<br />

end, with the right support, we found<br />

our way through it and came out better<br />

because of it.<br />

What’s your parenting style? I love<br />

spending time with our boys and working<br />

on sharing as many experiences and<br />

memories as we can. Anything outdoors:<br />

camping, dirt biking, cars, scuba diving,<br />

hiking, paddle boarding, surfing, biking,<br />

and boating. Anything we do together I<br />

will commit myself one hundred percent<br />

to. I’ve always been involved coaching<br />

their sports teams and even got scuba<br />

certified with our youngest because he<br />

didn’t play a lot of sports at the time.<br />

Giving and volunteering are an essential<br />

part of our family.<br />

How has fatherhood changed you?<br />

It has humbled me and given me a<br />

greater purpose in life. It has also shown<br />

me what the word “grace” really means<br />

and how incredibly important it is in<br />

parenting. Parenting has opened my<br />

eyes to racial inequality and injustice in<br />

this country as well as the mental health<br />

crisis, and I’ve made it a point to use all<br />

the privileges I enjoy to speak out and<br />

speak up.<br />

What life lessons do you hope to impart<br />

to your children? I hope I’ve shown our<br />

boys how important family is and how to<br />

treat their mom and, in turn, women in<br />

general. Be faithful, respectful, kind and<br />

supportive, and always put family first.<br />

The expectation of our boys is to stand<br />

up for those who need it most and realize<br />

how much they can really do to help.<br />

Q&A<br />

Best part about being a dad: Watching<br />

our boys find their way—each<br />

completely different from the other.<br />

Favorite activity to do with the kids:<br />

Anything outdoors but particularly dirt<br />

biking and camping.<br />

Your ultimate dad superpower: Lie<br />

Detector aka my gut instinct. 100%<br />

accurate, however, not always followed.<br />

Best dad advice: I’ve learned that the<br />

best gift we can give our kids is the gift<br />

of time. With four boys, I’ve realized that<br />

every kid develops at their own pace—<br />

sometimes it takes a little extra time and<br />

that’s okay. Ignore the noise, focus on<br />

what matters most.<br />

When the going gets tough… The<br />

importance of family, trust and<br />

unconditional love becomes essential.<br />

We have faced some pretty tough times<br />

and without the trust and unconditional<br />

love of my wife, we never would have<br />

pulled through it.<br />

GIVING BACK<br />

ORGANIZATIONS AND RESOURCES<br />

FOR THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY by LINDA HOLDERNESS<br />

<strong>June</strong> is<br />

Pride<br />

Month.<br />

The timing<br />

marks the<br />

anniversary<br />

of the<br />

Stonewall<br />

uprising<br />

against a<br />

police raid<br />

on gay<br />

bars in<br />

Greenwich<br />

Village in<br />

1969.<br />

For Sacramento and most of the<br />

country—and even much of the world—this<br />

is when the LGBTQ+ population celebrates<br />

its achievements and honors its quest<br />

for equal rights. One of those rights, the<br />

right to marriage, has allowed the union of<br />

100,000 same-sex couples in California—<br />

with more than 5,000 of them in our threecounty<br />

area.<br />

Other goals may remain elusive—such<br />

as 100% acceptance—but parades of<br />

hundreds of people hoisting rainbow flags<br />

would have been daring not too many<br />

years ago.<br />

With all these changes, and even<br />

despite them, the LBGTQ+ population<br />

has special needs that local community<br />

agencies strive to fill. The organizations<br />

and resources we list here meet a variety<br />

of these needs, along with many others<br />

that offer complementary services.<br />

Services that could benefit the oftentimes<br />

marginalized members of our community.<br />

SACRAMENTO PRIDE MARCH<br />

AND FESTIVAL<br />

This is Pride’s signature event in our area.<br />

Sacramento’s festival, produced by the<br />

Sacramento LGBT Community Center,<br />

resumes in person this year on <strong>June</strong> 11 and<br />

12 at Capitol Mall. (Placer and El Dorado<br />

counties held their festivals in May.) More<br />

than 22,000 participants are expected<br />

to gather for food, exhibits, information,<br />

entertainment, and all-around<br />

camaraderie. From 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. both<br />

days, the march begins at 11 a.m. on<br />

Sunday at Southside Park. Admission<br />

is $15 for two days or $10 for one. VIP<br />

tickets are $150. sacramentopride.org<br />

SACRAMENTO LGBT<br />

COMMUNITY CENTER<br />

Besides sponsoring the Pride Festival,<br />

the community center offers a range of<br />

resources for LGBTQ+ people, including<br />

safe daily respite for youths between<br />

noon and 6 p.m. Other help includes<br />

career coaching and job searches, legal<br />

advocacy, HIV testing, mental health<br />

counseling, shelter assistance, adult<br />

respite on Tuesdays and Thursdays<br />

and much more. The Center also<br />

makes referrals to LBGTQ+-affirming<br />

professionals. Their colorful new home<br />

stands at 1015 20th Street, Sacramento.<br />

Open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 6<br />

p.m.; Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.<br />

Game On<br />

Trying Our Hand at Pickleball<br />

by TERRY CARROLL | photos by TAYLOR GILLESPIE<br />

I’ve played tennis for a large<br />

portion of my adult life and<br />

I absolutely love the game.<br />

So, the first time I heard the<br />

term pickleball (PB) I giggled<br />

a bit and said incredulously<br />

“pickleball—really?”<br />

Now, the time had come to actually<br />

play a little and see what all the hoopla<br />

was about. Because, if you haven’t<br />

noticed, it’s taking over every park and<br />

tennis club in the region and beyond.<br />

We were fortunate enough to play for<br />

the first time at Spare Time Sports<br />

Clubs’ Johnson Ranch Sports Club in<br />

Roseville, where you can now play on<br />

24 brand new beautiful PB courts.<br />

I’ve heard a number of descriptions<br />

of PB over the past couple of years,<br />

but you will see many describe it as a<br />

combination of ping pong, tennis, and<br />

badminton. You play with a paddle<br />

much like in ping pong; it’s light and<br />

essentially becomes an extension of<br />

your arm—like most racquet sports.<br />

The pickleball itself is hard plastic<br />

and is essentially a wiffle ball. For you<br />

tennis players, this takes a little bit of<br />

play to get used to as the ball moves<br />

and bounces differently. The game can<br />

be played both singles and doubles<br />

formats, and standard games are<br />

played to 11 points and must be won<br />

by a 2-point margin. (Tournament play<br />

can be 15 or 21-point games.)<br />

You serve with an underhand swing to<br />

an area of your opponent’s side of the<br />

court. At that point, play begins much<br />

like any game. However, like ping pong,<br />

the ball must bounce in the opponent’s<br />

court before you can return. No volleys<br />

are allowed. The server, if they win the<br />

point, will then serve from the other<br />

side. This will go back and forth until<br />

that side loses the point and the serve<br />

moves to the other player or team.<br />

Then, play is on until one side hits out,<br />

misses, or nets the ball, and the serve<br />

changes sides. Like ping pong, you only<br />

score a point when serving.<br />

With the basics out of the way, we<br />

started to play a little and I quickly<br />

understood why everyone is playing<br />

this game—IT’S JUST FUN! You and<br />

your opponents are concentrating<br />

on play but there’s an intimate and<br />

fun feel about the whole game that<br />

comes across quickly. And, unlike<br />

tennis, the skillset to play is a little<br />

less complicated, yet, the mental side<br />

of the game and the strategy can be<br />

very intense.<br />

I’m in the 55+ age bracket (my wife’s<br />

giggling in the background saying<br />

“add another +”). You might have<br />

heard that that’s the perfect age<br />

for this game—and you would be<br />

right, except, the statistics show<br />

that PB is being played by everyone<br />

WHERE TO PLAY<br />

When you’re ready to hit the<br />

courts, you are going to find<br />

quite a few places to play. In<br />

fact, every community in the<br />

region offers places to learn<br />

and play this terrific sport,<br />

both indoors and outdoors.<br />

One great resource is the<br />

USA Pickleball Places2Play<br />

app. It will map out many of<br />

the best places to play the<br />

sport in your area.<br />

from young children to those with<br />

even more ‘+’ signs than me! I would<br />

recommend that you get out there<br />

and give it a shot. Chances are you’ll<br />

get hooked, get a nice little work out,<br />

get those competitive juices flowing,<br />

and just have great fun with old<br />

friends and new.<br />

You can always do a quick<br />

online search as well,<br />

and find that all our local<br />

communities offer courts<br />

in their parks, as well as<br />

instruction, tournaments,<br />

and more. Pickleball is a big<br />

deal and continues to grow<br />

at an incredible pace.<br />

One standout is Spare<br />

Time Sports Clubs with<br />

locations that include<br />

Broadstone Sports Club in<br />

Folsom that has 8 courts,<br />

Gold River Sports Club<br />

that has 10 courts, and the<br />

brand-new expansion at<br />

their Johnson Ranch Sports<br />

Club in Roseville that boasts<br />

24 new courts—making it the<br />

largest pickleball complex<br />

in Northern California. All of<br />

these clubs are perfect for<br />

both kids and adults, as well<br />

as all levels of instruction.<br />

ASK THE<br />

EXPERT<br />

by EMILY PETER-COREY<br />

Q: HOW DO I HELP MY<br />

"QUARANTINE PUPPY"<br />

TO BE ALONE WHILE I<br />

GO BACK TO WORK?<br />

A: The most important thing<br />

you can do is to implement<br />

your plan before going back to<br />

work. Start by leaving your dog<br />

for short periods of time and<br />

gradually increase the time that<br />

you are gone. Leave music on<br />

or maybe the TV so that there<br />

appears to be a presence for<br />

them. If you crate your dog,<br />

make sure to give them a nice<br />

treat when you put them in the<br />

crate. This will make it a happy<br />

and positive place. It’s crucial to<br />

make sure you're giving your dog<br />

a lot of exercise when you are<br />

home—this will make the down<br />

time easier for them to bear.<br />

If you need help with exercise,<br />

it's always useful to hire a dog<br />

walker.<br />

Dr. Bogard has a long history in the health field. From<br />

an RN to a nurse anesthetist to an anesthesiologist, she<br />

spent almost 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 50's<br />

she found her own health starting to decline and sought<br />

out a healthy aging physician. After experiencing the<br />

benefits she sought out the fellowship of regenerative<br />

and healthy aging through the American Academy of<br />

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" and<br />

integrates each system in the body together. She also<br />

looks at environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors<br />

which result in "dis-ease". Her continued and expanding<br />

practice utilizes bioidentical hormone replacement,<br />

thyroid and adrenal optimization, GI healing, peptide<br />

therapy, ozone therapy, PRP hair therapy, as well as<br />

body contouring and weight management.<br />

4 Signs Your Home Needs Updating<br />

by KERRIE KELLY<br />

When it comes to deciding<br />

if your home is due for a<br />

makeover, there are two<br />

types of signs to look out<br />

for—functional design details<br />

and design style. Functional<br />

design details include items<br />

that no longer work and may<br />

need replacing, whereas<br />

design style focuses on<br />

personal preferences related<br />

to your aesthetic and lifestyle.<br />

Below we’ve discussed some<br />

major signs to look out for<br />

when considering home<br />

improvement.<br />

Original Elements<br />

When living in an older home, original fixtures will eventually need to be<br />

replaced—especially if you want to keep your home functioning. Though it’s<br />

common to utilize vintage pieces, it is important to mix the old with the new to<br />

give your home a fresh aesthetic.<br />

Dated design styles can often be found in the bathroom. If your home was last<br />

updated in the ‘70s, your bathroom may feature older tiles,<br />

shower units, and vanity cabinets; this is a sure sign that your<br />

bathroom is ready for an update. One easy way to mix the old<br />

with the new is to replace some of the furniture and fixtures.<br />

Your space can benefit greatly from a brand-new bathroom<br />

vanity, giving the room an updated look without having to<br />

tear it down to the studs. A new vanity will not only refresh<br />

the design, it will also provide more storage underneath if<br />

you decide to size up or, alternatively, save square footage if<br />

you’re sizing down.<br />

Vinyl flooring and old carpet are another big indicator<br />

that your home needs updating. Though this may not be<br />

original to the home, it is a dated feature that is found in<br />

homes across the country. Often, when pulling out old<br />

flooring, we discover beautiful hardwood floors hiding<br />

underneath. If this is the case, this can be a very budgetfriendly<br />

way to update your home without too much work.<br />

A little sanding, staining, and sealing will do the trick and is<br />

easy enough to do yourself.<br />

Technology Upgrades<br />

There are several ways technology can improve your home,<br />

and homes lacking these improvements will need to be<br />

updated to stay relevant—especially if you plan on selling.<br />

This can be as easy as switching to energy-efficient light<br />

bulbs and upgrading your furnace to offer cost savings in<br />

your monthly energy bills, ultimately making your home<br />

more sustainable. There are also ways to improve your<br />

home’s security through smart home systems like outdoor<br />

cameras, door sensors, and smart locks. These are all new<br />

products that can be a simple upgrade to any older home<br />

and will keep you and your family safe day-to-day.<br />

Up-to-Date Design <strong>Style</strong><br />

Other obvious indicators that your design style is outof-date<br />

can include wood paneling, Tuscan kitchens,<br />

vertical blinds, and popcorn ceilings. These are all<br />

very easy fixes that just take a little time and planning.<br />

First, you’ll want to identify a new design style or styles<br />

that meet your preferences, then start budgeting and<br />

planning your projects. When planning, you don’t need to<br />

change everything at once, but you will want to consider<br />

incorporating the latest trends into your new and<br />

improved design.<br />

New Structure + Fixtures<br />

Keeping an eye on the structure of your home is very<br />

important, especially if it’s an older home. Stay up-to-date on<br />

the maintenance by having your house inspected every five<br />

years, regardless of the age of your home. A home inspection<br />

covers everything from the foundation of your home to the<br />

electrical and plumbing inside, and the roof up top. This is<br />

very important to ensure you aren’t overlooking anything that<br />

could cause problems down the road, and it can also help to<br />

keep you and your family safe. In between these inspections<br />

you can keep an eye out for any obvious issues. This can<br />

include checking your roof for any damages, the foundation<br />

for cracks, and staying on top of furnace filter changes. That<br />

way, when your home inspection rolls around, you aren’t<br />

wasting money to fix things that could have been prevented<br />

with a little maintenance.<br />

These are just a few of the many indicators that signify<br />

whether your home is ready to be updated. Now is the time<br />

to begin planning those large and small renovations to<br />

ensure your home is safe, functional, and up-to-date.<br />

FUN WAYS<br />

TO BEAT THE<br />

HEAT<br />

PARK AT A PARK<br />

Checking out California’s State Parks this summer<br />

has never been easier. Now you can check out a free<br />

vehicle day-use pass from your local public library. All<br />

you need is a library card. You can get day-use entry<br />

to over 200 participating state park units operated by<br />

State Parks, valid for entry for one passenger vehicle<br />

with the capacity of up to nine people or one highway<br />

licensed motorcycle. Visit your participating local<br />

library for details and explore some of California’s<br />

natural wonders! checkoutcastateparks.com<br />

TURN THE PAGE TO A BETTER SUMMER<br />

Reading just five books over summer can help kids<br />

avoid the “summer slide.” Help them stay engaged by<br />

participating in one of the many Summer Reading<br />

Programs offered through your local libraries. Explore<br />

new worlds, win prizes, participate in fun live events,<br />

and help the libraries meet their reading goals. You<br />

can even track progress with the Beanstack app at<br />

participating branches. Programs tend to start in early<br />

<strong>June</strong> and run through July/August.<br />

It’s that time of the year again! For our <strong>2022</strong><br />

Summer Fun Guide we’re invoking the great<br />

Paul Simon with 50 (or rather 30) Ways to<br />

Spend Your Summer: “Just jump in the pool,<br />

Abdul / Nosh on some ‘cue, Sue / Go to the<br />

Fair, Blair / And get out of this heat!” Summer<br />

camps, outdoor concerts, great local food,<br />

festivals, brews, and cold treats galore in the<br />

pages ahead. But wait, there’s more! Summer<br />

reading programs, guided hikes, star-gazing,<br />

train rides, and glamping, too! The only limit<br />

is your imagination. Slap on some sunscreen,<br />

bring a hat, and let’s go get some fun—despite<br />

the hot summer sun. Oh, and you can keep the<br />

earworm, that’s on the house.<br />

GET YOUR SPEED THRILLS<br />

Off-road racing may be just the thing to<br />

bring the thrills this summer. Hangtown<br />

MX in Rancho Cordova is bringing their 53rd<br />

Annual Hangtown Motocross Classic on<br />

GO GLAMPING<br />

You can be a nature-lover and not want to<br />

cosplay as Bear Grylls. Thanks to the concept<br />

of glamping, getting away from it all can<br />

involve comfort and even clean sheets. At<br />

the top of the list is the visually stunning<br />

option with all the mod-cons. You could be<br />

the envy of your social media followers by<br />

renting a Geodesic Dome in Pioneer. This<br />

groovy, private dome sleeps six, includes<br />

two bathrooms (towels and linens provided),<br />

Roku-equipped flatscreen TV, as well as a<br />

fully equipped kitchen. (Search “Unique and<br />

Secluded Dome Getaway near Sacramento,<br />

California” on glampinghub.com)<br />

On the other end of the glamping scale,<br />

there’s shelter and location that still preserves<br />

the appearance of rugged outdoors—if<br />

you want to maintain credibility with your<br />

outdoorsy friends. Glamp in an off-the-grid<br />

riverfront stone cabin at Consumnes River<br />

Ranch in Plymouth. This cute rustic cabin<br />

sleeps two (bring your own bedding) and<br />

there’s no power or running water, but there is<br />

a private swimming hole and an outdoor fire<br />

pit. cosumnesriverranch.com<br />

CHUG ALONG FOR THE RIDE<br />

There are crazy trains, midnight trains,<br />

downtown trains, and peace trains. How<br />

about a good old-fashioned history train?<br />

Check out the El Dorado Western Railroad,<br />

offering roundtrip rides on historic gangcars<br />

once used by railroad workers. Their 40- to<br />

45-minute roundtrips depart at 10 a.m., 11<br />

a.m., noon, and 1 p.m. every first and third<br />

Sunday. Tickets are $8 ages 9 and up; $3<br />

ages 3-8; under three are free. museum.<br />

TAKE A ROYAL TOUR<br />

If you are as sure-footed as a mountain<br />

goat and looking for a different type of<br />

day trip this summer, take the family to<br />

visit Vikingsholm, Lake Tahoe’s secret<br />

castle. This true marvel of Scandinavian<br />

architecture has re-opened for tours and<br />

they’re happening seven days a week<br />

through September 30. Prepare for a<br />

steep hike down to the castle itself (not<br />

advised for those with medical conditions<br />

or mobility issues). Conducted by the<br />

Sierra State Parks Foundation, tickets are<br />

$15 for adults and $12 for students 7-17<br />

and with valid college IDs, active-duty<br />

military, and seniors. Admission is free for<br />

children under seven. Or, skip the hike and<br />

go by boat. Mondays through Wednesdays<br />

at 4:30 p.m., you can cruise the waters<br />

of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay, and<br />

then tour the magnificent Vikingsholm.<br />

sierrastateparks.org/emerald-bay-statepark/vikingsholm-tours<br />

TAKE YOURSELF TO THE FAIR<br />

Can you smell it? The faint smell of<br />

cotton candy and fried dough wafting<br />

on the breeze (mixed with those other<br />

specific farm smells of hay and *cough*<br />

“barn-aroma”). The fragrance can only<br />

mean one thing: It’s time for California<br />

State and County Fairs. Where else can<br />

you eat your weight in food on a stick,<br />

ride a bumper car, squee at baby farm<br />

animals, and buy a wonder mop as seen<br />

on TV? El Dorado County Fair is from<br />

<strong>June</strong> 16-19 at the Fair and Event Center<br />

Sacramento State Aquatic Center<br />

Effie Yeaw Nature Center<br />

STEP (OR SPLASH) OUTSIDE<br />

Spend some quality time exploring<br />

our region’s beautiful waterways this<br />

summer. For kayaking, you can’t do any<br />

better than Lake Natoma, and you’d be<br />

hard pressed to find anywhere prettier<br />

or quieter on those sparkling summer<br />

mornings. You’re also bound to see plenty<br />

of birds and wildlife as an added bonus.<br />

To rent necessary kayaking and safety<br />

equipment, visit Sacramento State<br />

Aquatic Center (sacstateaquaticcenter.<br />

com/equipment-rentals). Head up the hill<br />

to Upper Lake Clementine at the Auburn<br />

State Recreation Area and enjoy a local<br />

hidden gem. The perfect spot for swimming,<br />

paddling, even hiking, give Lake Clementine<br />

Trail a try (parks.ca.gov/?page_id=1141).<br />

Further afield, roughly 15 miles outside<br />

Redding is Whiskeytown Falls at the<br />

Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.<br />

This gorgeous waterfall was a secret<br />

previously known only to loggers and park<br />

rangers. Both dog- and family-friendly,<br />

hikers can get there via a strenuous uphill<br />

but shady 1.7-mile hike on the James K. Carr<br />

Trail (3.4 miles roundtrip; careful, some<br />

sections are steep!). Make sure you climb<br />

the stairs to the upper viewing platform at<br />

the base of the waterfall! (nps.gov/whis/<br />

planyourvisit/waterfalls-of-whiskeytown.<br />

htm). In the less strenuous and closeto-home<br />

category, Ancil Hoffman Park<br />

(home of the Effie Yeaw Nature Center)<br />

in Carmichael is the quiet jewel of the<br />

bunch. Perfect for picnics, family walks<br />

or just a summer stroll, it’s an underrated<br />

beauty that is sure to elicit a smile even<br />

from your grumpiest teenager. There are<br />

plenty of shaded trails, riverfront hikes,<br />

and sprawling grounds—a beautiful<br />

reminder of why we love this area<br />

(regionalparks.saccounty.gov/Parks/Pages/<br />

them. Show these hardworking folks<br />

some love this summer. Folsom’s Sutter<br />

novel Peter and The Starcatcher from<br />

None also comes to life August 27 to<br />

Enjoy the beautiful grounds of Placerville’s<br />

Wakamatsu Farm at their Open Farm<br />

Day: Picnic Day on <strong>June</strong> 18, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.<br />

A cultural and historical treasure in and of<br />

itself, Wakamatsu Farm is the site of the first<br />

Japanese colony in America. Enjoy a family<br />

picnic and explore the beautiful grounds at<br />

your own pace, stretch out on a spot by the<br />

lake or at a table under a shady oak. Docents<br />

will also be available to provide more<br />

information about the rich history of the site<br />

(arconservancy.org/wakamatsu).<br />

MAKE A GAME OF IT<br />

Let’s be real. There’s still nothing like a<br />

summer night at home with family and<br />

friends. How about upping the stakes with<br />

a backyard game night? If you’re short<br />

on ideas, some of our nostalgic favorites<br />

include tetherball, cornhole, skittles,<br />

croquet, badminton, ladder toss, lawn<br />

bowls, bocce ball, kubb aka Viking chess<br />

(Google it and thank us later), and good oldfashioned<br />

horseshoes. To the victor goes<br />

the comfiest lounge chair!<br />

BRING A BOOK<br />

You’ve got a pool, a comfy chair, and a cold<br />

drink. All that’s missing is an enjoyable book.<br />

Pick up a bestseller like Amor Towles’ The<br />

Lincoln Highway or Run, Rose, Run by Dolly<br />

Parton (yes, that Dolly Parton) and James<br />

Patterson, and support local independent<br />

booksellers this summer like Folsom’s<br />

Ruby’s Books (rubysfolsom.com), El Dorado<br />

Hills’ Face In A Book (getyourfaceinabook.<br />

com), Cameron Park’s The Bookhouse<br />

(facebook.com/thebookhouseCP),<br />

Lincoln’s The Book Cellar (facebook.com/<br />

mybookcellar), and Placerville’s The Bookery<br />

(thebookeryplacerville.com).<br />

SPIN SOME VINYL<br />

How about some summer tunes on wax<br />

to go with that book? Maybe some classic<br />

R&B, like the legendary groovers Con Funk<br />

Shun and their 1982 album “To The Max.” Or<br />

go modern and spin some Silk Sonic for a<br />

Bruno Mars-Anderson .Paak-led throwback.<br />

You can get all these vibes and more at one<br />

of these great local record stores. Check<br />

out Hi-Tones Record Store in Rocklin<br />

Time Travel<br />

Take a Tour of Our Region’s State Historic Parks<br />

by DANNAH NIELSEN<br />

It hasn’t been just the<br />

pandemic that has us<br />

reconsidering our travel goals.<br />

Inflation, vaccinations, war,<br />

flight cancellations—it’s been a<br />

perfect storm, and with that,<br />

a perfect invitation to take a<br />

closer look at what our region<br />

has to offer when it comes<br />

to travel adventures. Luckily,<br />

the greater Sacramento area<br />

is a gold mine—literally and<br />

figuratively—for exploration,<br />

and we need to look no further<br />

than our own State Parks.<br />

California State Parks are<br />

not limited to trees and trails<br />

as one might believe. Since<br />

its inception, this agency has<br />

been dedicated to preserving<br />

our unique history, and for<br />

us locals, this means the<br />

rich foothills, our native<br />

ancestors, and the modernday<br />

contributions of industrial<br />

workers. There are State Parks<br />

open to us from the very<br />

Southern Border all the way<br />

to the Northern most tip of<br />

California, with several found<br />

right here within a short day<br />

trip adventure.<br />

Marshall Gold Discovery<br />

State Historic Park<br />

Blacksmith at Empire<br />

Mine State Historic Park<br />

With any park visited, we suggest<br />

maximizing the experience with a<br />

few must-do’s:<br />

• Visit with the docents! These<br />

volunteers are knowledgeable and<br />

passionate, and love to answer<br />

questions.<br />

• Stop and read the signs. For<br />

adults, the educational signs are<br />

a great refresher for all the things<br />

we were taught in grade school.<br />

For children in tow, these signs are<br />

great conversation starters.<br />

• Take the well-beaten path.<br />

Yes, the museums and historic<br />

buildings are always time well<br />

spent, but often—and not much<br />

further away—are trailheads to<br />

some of the most beautiful hikes<br />

California has to offer.<br />

• Always check social media or<br />

call ahead to learn the most upto-date<br />

operating hours.<br />

Empire Mine State<br />

Historic Park<br />

10791 East Empire Street,<br />

Grass Valley<br />

Located in Grass Valley (one of the<br />

oldest gold mines in California), this<br />

park has a museum and several<br />

buildings to explore on its grounds<br />

and includes an immaculately kept<br />

garden to stroll. Stray off the main<br />

grounds for shaded hiking trails and<br />

wildflower sightings.<br />

Marshall Gold Discovery<br />

State Historic Park<br />

310 Back Street, Coloma<br />

This park is exactly what its name<br />

suggests—the original location<br />

of the first discovery of gold. In<br />

addition to a top-notch museum,<br />

this state park is located along<br />

the South fork of the American<br />

River, which offers a relaxing<br />

option for cooling down on a hot<br />

day or taking in sweeping views<br />

of the foothills. Stray off the main<br />

grounds for a view of the historic<br />

Church; stray a little further for<br />

the Dutch Creek Waterfalls.<br />

train that operates throughout the day.<br />

Photos courtesy of Dannah Nielsen.<br />

Locke Boarding House<br />

Museum State Park<br />

13916 Main Street, Locke<br />

This museum is one part State Park<br />

and one part living history of a Chinese<br />

settlement town along the delta south of<br />

Sacramento. The museum is chock-full of<br />

interesting documents, images, artifacts,<br />

and relics (as museums typically are),<br />

but what makes this tour so unique is<br />

being able to walk outside the doors of<br />

the boarding house and actually see the<br />

history that is talked about, in its original<br />

form, along the narrow Main Street that<br />

makes up Locke. We’re all familiar with<br />

our state’s gold rush history, but Locke<br />

is a rare glimpse into another important<br />

part of our history—the contributions<br />

of our Chinese ancestors. Locke is<br />

untouched, colorful, and unlike any other<br />

town in our region. Stray off the path for<br />

a hidden wooden trail hike along a levee<br />

outside of town; stray a little further for<br />

other tiny towns dotting the delta.<br />

Railtown 1897 State<br />

Historic Park<br />

Railtown 1897 State Historic<br />

Park and Columbia State<br />

Historic Park<br />

These might be the best 2-for-1 combo<br />

deal in the entire state! Just six miles<br />

apart, there is something for everyone—<br />

guaranteed.<br />

Columbia SHP (22708 Broadway<br />

Street, Columbia) is lively with multiple<br />

businesses inhabiting the historic<br />

buildings, all designed to give you the<br />

original feel of gold rush living. Find<br />

restaurants, mercantiles, blacksmiths,<br />

candy shops, and all the other little perks<br />

that come with going back in time. While<br />

the fanfare is on Main Street, venture off<br />

the path and check out historic hotspots<br />

located just around the corner, such as<br />

Columbia Kate’s Teahouse.<br />

Railtown 1897 SHP (10501 Reservoir<br />

Road, Jamestown), meanwhile, is a<br />

train museum much like the one we are<br />

Folsom Powerhouse State<br />

Historic Park<br />

9980 Greenback Lane, Folsom<br />

Part of the larger Folsom State<br />

Recreational Area, this area is vastly<br />

different from the rest of the lake<br />

we spend our free time traversing.<br />

The location is a fantastic easy field<br />

trip to see the inner workings and<br />

engineering that revolutionized our<br />

region’s infrastructure with power. If<br />

you’re an engineering fanatic, this tour<br />

is for you, consisting one newer building<br />

dedicated to sharing modern updates<br />

of how power is provided, followed<br />

by additional buildings preserving the<br />

manmade conductors, generators, and<br />

transformers of yesterday. Electricity<br />

has never looked to cool! Venture off<br />

the main grounds for a hike along Lake<br />

Natoma; venture further for some<br />

incredible views from the Folsom Historic<br />

Truss Bridge.<br />

Garlic Naan<br />

Samosa Chaat<br />

a soft, chewy interior.<br />

They are then soaked in<br />

a sugary cardamom, rose<br />

water, and saffron syrup.<br />

The juiciness of the syrup<br />

explodes in your mouth,<br />

followed by a tender<br />

dough that is soaked<br />

through with that amazing<br />

sweetness and hint of<br />

spice.<br />

Being one of just a few<br />

patrons at that time, the<br />

service was incredible, and<br />

everyone was extremely<br />

friendly. This quiet, non-pretentious space<br />

has the bold flavors (and spiciness) you<br />

would expect of a good Indian restaurant.<br />

So, the next time you have a hankering for<br />

Indian food, give Tandoori Flame a try. You<br />

might not be transported to the Himalayas<br />

like I was, but you’ll come pretty close.<br />

Palak Panner<br />

Tandoori Onion Kulcha<br />

Tandoori Flame is quietly<br />

tucked away next to an<br />

Indian grocery store in the<br />

‘burbs of Roseville, awaiting<br />

each person with a friendly<br />

vibe and excellent service.<br />

Although pleasant, the dining area almost<br />

doesn’t do justice to the bold and vibrant<br />

flavors upon which their success lies.<br />

The first time I ever tried Indian food<br />

was in New Delhi when I was 17-years-old.<br />

I had no idea what to expect. The spices,<br />

the smells, the textures, and the colors<br />

were so intoxicating that I felt I had to<br />

try everything. Yet, like many westerners,<br />

there was one dish that I couldn’t have<br />

enough of: Murgh Makhani, commonly<br />

known as Butter Chicken.<br />

When I take a bite out of this dish, I<br />

am immediately transported to the small<br />

Himalayan hostel tucked away in the<br />

picturesque mountains of McLeod Ganj.<br />

The butter chicken from Tandoori Flame<br />

took me right back.<br />

The dish is typically made from a<br />

combination of spices including turmeric,<br />

cumin, red chili powder, and garam<br />

masala. The chicken is tenderized in<br />

a yogurt marinade with ground garlic,<br />

ginger, and the aforementioned spices, and<br />

cooked in cream and (as the name suggests)<br />

butter. In the case of Tandoori Flame, I felt<br />

like the sauce was a bit more yogurt-heavy,<br />

providing a slightly “tangier” flavor, but it was<br />

enjoyable nonetheless. We ordered a side of<br />

Garlic Naan—an indulgent Indian flatbread—<br />

to accompany it, resulting in the perfect<br />

combination. No fork needed!<br />

Our second dish was Palak Paneer, a slow<br />

cooked spinach dish with fresh ginger, garlic,<br />

herbs, and spices with paneer, a firm Indian<br />

cottage cheese. The smooth, creamy sauce<br />

topped atop a Tandoori Onion Kulcha (think<br />

naan with onion and herbs) was a winning duo.<br />

We ordered all of our dishes spicy, and<br />

they were SPICY. My love of spicy food goes<br />

all the way back to childhood, so I am often<br />

disappointed when I order a spicy dish and<br />

it doesn’t deliver. Tandoori Flame definitely<br />

delivers on the spice. If you are on the fence<br />

about your comfort level for spicy food, take it<br />

down a notch.<br />

Finally, we finished the evening with an<br />

order of Gulab Jamun, one of my favorite<br />

Indian desserts. Gulab Jamun is made by<br />

combining khoya (milk solids) and flour into<br />

a dough that’s kneaded into small balls, then<br />

deep fried at a low temperature, resulting in<br />

Gulab Jamun<br />

HOURS: 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. (Wednesday-Monday);<br />

Closed Tuesday<br />

Samosa Chaat, Mango Lassi, Gulab Jamun<br />

Brazilian-American fusion cuisine is conveniently located on East Bidwell<br />

Street and it’s really, really good. Quick Dish is a family-owned business<br />

that opened in 2021 and they’ve brought their culture and food to Folsom<br />

for all to enjoy. I started my journey with the Cheese Bread. Warm, gooey,<br />

savory—I could have eaten the whole order, but I had to save room for the<br />

rest of the food. For my main course I had the BBQ Picanha Sandwich. I<br />

learned it’s a very popular cut of steak in Brazil. It’s tender, has very little<br />

fat, and is quite flavorful. The sandwich also has a yummy garlic sauce,<br />

mozzarella cheese, lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. Oh! And it's served on<br />

demi baguette! They offer chicken, pork, salmon, and tri-tip sandwiches,<br />

too. Pizza is also an option—from pepperoni to Brazilian calabresa and<br />

everything in between. You'll also find salads on the menu. The biggest<br />

surprise—and it was a very pleasant and tasty surprise—was the dessert.<br />

Please do yourself a favor and try the Banana Affair Pizza. I am so happy<br />

I tried it. It’s a pizza, but topped with caramelized banana sauce, sliced<br />

bananas, cinnamon sugar, and mozzarella cheese. I know, the cheese threw<br />

me for a loop, too. But it works and it’s AMAZING. For real. I will drive across<br />

several towns to have it again. — by JULIE RYAN<br />

by LORN RANDALL<br />

Anne Bonny Blonde Ale<br />

DarkHeart Brewing<br />

4339 Auburn Boulevard, Sacramento, 916-333-1192, darkheartbrewing.com<br />

“Bold and beautiful beer for a bold and beautiful pirate” is how self-proclaimed “Beer<br />

Wench” Cynthia Lee of DarkHeart Brewing describes their Anne Bonny Blonde Ale.<br />

Brewed with biscuit malt and presenting a “subtle hop character, Anne Bonny Blonde<br />

is a classic take on blonde ale.” They say blondes have more fun, so come walk the plank<br />

with a true pirate, Anne Bonny Blonde.<br />

Type III Squareback Pale Ale<br />

Red Bus Brewing Company<br />

802 Reading Street, Suite A, Folsom, 916-467-7790, redbusbrew.com<br />

Combining the love of automobiles and beer with a taste of nostalgia, Red Bus Brewing<br />

Company’s Type III Squareback Pale Ale paves the road to California’s pale ale highway.<br />

“Generous use of crystal malts and assertive hopping yield an amber, assertively bitter pale<br />

ale. Hopped with cascade, centennial, and amarillo, this beer is like entering a time machine<br />

to 1995.” Stop by and take this Squareback for a ride you won’t forget.<br />

Sea T hrift Kolsch<br />

Moonraker Brewing Company<br />

12970 Earhart Avenue, Suite 100, Auburn, 530-745-6816, moonrakerbrewing.com<br />

Treat yourself to Moonraker Brewing's Sea Thrift if you’re not familiar with a Kolschstyle<br />

beer that's brewed following the traditions and ingredients of Germany, Bavaria,<br />

and the Czech Republic. “Observe the bohemian floor malted barley with notes<br />

of biscuit and honey.” Typically fermented with ale yeast, but then finished in cold<br />

temperatures like a lager, Kolsch beer tends to be light with a hint of fruit. Expand your<br />

palate with this tasty, easy-drinking brew.<br />

Gold Rush Lager<br />

El Dorado Brewing Company<br />

6051 Enterprise Drive, Suite 102, Diamond Springs, 530-558-4188,<br />

eldobrew.com<br />

El Dorado Brewing Company (EDBC) claims the roots of their Gold Rush Lager can be<br />

traced to an early California brewing process known as steam beer. An example of this<br />

can be found in Jack London’s memoir John Barleycorn. EDBC’s version boasts “sweet<br />

malt and bright hop flavors with a clean finish”. Sounds like EDBC has struck gold and all<br />

of us lager-style beer fans can too—just drop in and grab a pint!<br />

Golden Eagle Mandarin Wheat<br />

Loomis Basin Brewing Company<br />

3277 Swetzer Road, Loomis, 916-295-2739, loomisbasinbrewing.com<br />

There’s more than one form of gold in the Sierra Foothills and Loomis Basin Brewing<br />

Company has captured some in their Golden Eagle Mandarin Wheat. Made with locallysourced<br />

mandarin oranges (the “gold” in this brew), it’s effervescent and perfect<br />

for warm spring and summer days. Refreshing and full of the hearty flavor wheat beer<br />

brings, it’s also a favorite, so get some before it’s gone!<br />

Did You<br />

Know?<br />

The Tower Theatre opened<br />

on November 7, 1940 with<br />

the film Too Many Girls<br />

featuring Lucille Ball and<br />

Desi Arnaz.<br />

It was the last major<br />

downtown construction<br />

before WWII.<br />

It was remodeled and<br />

reopened in 1955 with the<br />

film Strategic Air Command<br />

starring James Stewart.<br />

The City acquired the<br />

Tower Theatre in 1989 as<br />

a donation from Angelo<br />

K. Tsakopoulous for the<br />

cultural enrichment of<br />

Roseville residents.<br />

The City renovated the<br />

theater and it reopened in<br />

2003 as a 260-seat theater<br />

in the round.<br />

Several theater groups<br />

operated there over the<br />
