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 |

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

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

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

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

Since summer is so fleeting—

for me at least—I always strive to

make the most of it. Whether it’s

family reunions, ambitious road-trips,

or just exploring where we live, I try to

make it memorable. When the pandemic

hit, it was really hard to stay confined

and I’m pretty sure the isolation got to my

mental health (as it did with a lot of us).

Which is why, I don’t take summers for

granted (or any season, for that matter).

Because you never know when the world

is going to change and doom you to a

summer-less existence.

Cruisin' on Lake Natoma

On that cheerful note (!) don’t blame

us (and by “us” I mean our entire team

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

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

Whether it’s groovy tunes, a cold beverage, or verdant

flora, we’ve got a plethora of options for you to cool

What’s your

fondest

memory of

summer?

“I grew up on a street filled with kids, so

summer reminds me of all of them and

the hours we spent outside. We'd all

play tag together, or watch the boys

play football or wiffleball, or I'd be

playing "house" or "teacher" with my

next-door neighbor. But we always

stopped what we were doing when

the ice cream man drove down our

street!” —Emily Peter-Corey

“My birthday falls in the summer in

August, so when I celebrated my 50th

birthday, I parachuted out of a plane at

15,000 feet. It’s hard to top that summer

memory!” —Bettie Grijalva

“My best childhood memories of summer

include gobbling up sweet mangoes,

playing by the beach, and making new

friends. (How was it so easy to make

friends back then?) As an adult, I’ve

made some epic road trips across U.S.

national parks with my husband over

summer.”—Tara Mendanha

“My fondest memories of summer were the

afternoons at my grandma's house as a

kid. She always left her door open to

visitors. My cousins and I would end

up spending half our summers playing

Mario Kart in her living room or burning

our bare feet on the hot stone in her

backyard in a mad dash for her pool.”

—Ray Burgess

“I always loved summer growing up

because my birthday falls on the first day

of summer and I fondly remember pool

birthday parties as a kid. Admittedly,

now, I love the idea of summer, but the

100-degree heat doesn’t turn me on!”

—Wendy Sipple

“All my summers growing up as a child

and young adult were consumed with

playing baseball. Every beginning of

summer I could not wait to start the

season. The smell of the fresh cut

grass, to the dirt caked all over my

uniform. I miss it all so much.

4 Rad Dads

get to know

by EMILY PETER-COREY

Dads do it all: from

teaching and coaching to

snuggling and adventuring,

there’s no one like Dad

to lift you up with a piece

of advice or a corny dad

joke. Read on for four

fatherhood journeys in

celebration of Father’s Day

on June 19.

Happy Father’s Day!

Dave Sacco

dad of three

Dave has been in

business with his

brother Anthony

since 2004 at Sacco & Sacco Insurance

Brokers, LLC (saccoins.com) and he's

been a father since 2011. He and wife

Monique have three daughters: Natalie

(11) and twins Camille and Elizabeth

(7). A true family man, Dave is also a

giving community member: He has

been an active member of the Rotary

Club of Historic Folsom for 12 years, and

currently serves as President. He also

coaches his younger daughters’ soccer

team, and plans to summit Mt. Whitney

this year for a second time.

Describe your foray into fatherhood.

My wife and I were married for four years

before having our first daughter. It was

another three years before we had our

twins. Having three girls has showed me

how important patience and empathy are

to raising strong-willed children.

What’s your parenting style? My wife

and I are supportive of our children. We

give them opportunities to help them

figure out what activities interest them

like gymnastics, track, soccer, tennis,

basketball, art, and dance. We also do

our best to provide a nurturing home

environment, so they can do well in school

and become a positive force in this world.

How has fatherhood changed you? I take

more time to get to know people before

passing judgement. My priorities have

definitely changed. I value my relationships

with my friends and family more than ever.

What life lessons do you hope to impart

to your children? I hope my children grow

up to understand that the world is bigger

than they think. The most important thing

is not what others think of them, but what

they do to help improve the lives of other

people. I also want them to know that

“family” can include close friends who you

can depend on whenever you need them,

or they need you.

Q&A

Best part about being a dad: Knowing I

have three kids that love me more than

anything.

Favorite activity to do with the kids: Anything

that makes them laugh and smile.

Your ultimate dad superpower: I make

awesome pancakes.

Best dad advice: Be patient and try not to

lose your temper in front of your kids.

When the going gets tough… Relax.

Everything will work out.

get to know

Steve Heard

dad of two

A realtor and

active community

member, Steve,

and wife Rosemary, have two daughters:

Jennifer (34) and Stephanie (29) along

with two grandsons. He has been the

Chair of the Folsom Arts & Culture

Commission, a board member of

the Folsom Cordova Community

Partnership, served as a mentor to

children of incarcerated parents through

Roots and Horizons, and currently serves

as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors

for the Folsom Chamber of Commerce.

In his spare time (yes, he does have

some), Steve enjoys local trails, wineries,

and concerts.

Describe your foray into fatherhood.

When my first child was born, I went from

wild and free to super dad seemingly

overnight. All of a sudden, the world didn't

revolve around me, and I had to think of

this beautiful little girl who was depending

on me. Little by little, I followed the lessons

my father had taught me simply by doing.

I became more patient, kind, and started

telling dad jokes.

What’s your parenting style? I believe in

pumping a kid with positive messages,

showering them with affection, having high

expectations, and knowing that they are

more than capable. I always told them I'll

never be disappointed if they sincerely try,

and from childhood to this very day, I want

my daughters to know that they always

have a safe place to land in my home.

How has fatherhood changed you? It

made me more patient, gentler, gave me

perspective and appreciation for life, and

dare I say it, made me even more hilarious

than ever.

What life lessons do you hope to impart

to your children? The importance of being

good to themselves, their family, and

the world. I want them to focus more on

happiness and family than on winning or

conquering.

Q&A

Best part about being a dad: The love I share

with my kids and grandkids. I am blessed

to know that my kids always want to hang

out with the old man.

Favorite activity to do with the kids: With the

grown ones, food and wine adventures.

With the grandsons, parks, ice cream

missions, toys, and dancing.

Your ultimate dad superpower: I hope it's

soothing a sad or worried heart. I always

listen with an open mind and try to give

perspectives and assurances they may not

have thought of. And jokes.

Best dad advice: For dads: Listen,

encourage, indulge, and support your kids.

They will have their fill of people who don't.

When the going gets tough… Remain

calm, take a step back and look at the big

picture, take responsibility for your role,

then do what's best.

get to know

Adam Abramowski

dad of one

Adam hails

from Poland and

owns Adam’s

Meat Shop (adamsmeatshop.com)

in Folsom along with his new endeavor

Adam’s Sausage Factory in Rancho

Cordova. When not at work, he helps

the community through Friends of

Folsom and volunteers at schools and

with sports teams. But the biggest

accomplishment in his life is being

a father to his and wife Odette’s son,

Logan (7).

Describe your foray into fatherhood.

It was love at first sight with my son and

as soon as I saw him, I knew my life is

changed. Also, cliché as it sounds, you

never really understood the love your

parents had for you until you become one.

What’s your parenting style? As I am very

easygoing, my parenting style is similar. I let

my son try and explore even if deep inside

I am terrified and just want to be protective.

My dad was very hands-on and taught me

a lot of skills for fixing things at home, and

I try to do the same with my son. He (still)

loves tagging along when we have to fix

cars or motorcycles or just to do any yard

work outside.

How has fatherhood changed you? I am

very mindful of what I do because I know

that there is a little person looking up to

me, so I try to be a dad that my son will be

proud of. I feel like I have acquired a great

deal of patience that I never knew I had

in me. I never really imagined that going

to sleep at night would mean reading the

same book three times just because my

son loves it so much.

What life lessons do you hope to impart

to your child? At his age right now, my son

would tell me what he wants to be when

he grows up one day and that changes

all the time. One day he wants to be an

astronaut, the next day he wants to be

an artist. I always tell him that he can be

whatever he wants to be as long as he

works hard for it. There is no shame in

failure—you get up and try again.

Q&A

Best part about being a dad: The funny

stories, snuggles and precious little

moments that I cherish the most. Seeing

my son’s first steps, hearing his first words,

his first bike ride, first day at school,

watching his first home run—those are the

moments that I live for!

Favorite activity to do with your son:

Going outdoors for a bike or motorcycle

ride, going to the lake or beach, and

camping. Any time just spent with my

son, even just going to a carwash or out

to eat chicken wings!

Your ultimate dad superpower: My son thinks

I can fix anything!

Best dad advice: You can be whatever you

want to be as long as you work hard for it.

When the going gets tough… Just keep

swimming!

get to know

Tim Purkis

dad of four

Tim was born

in Belgium, raised

in Holland, and

immigrated to the U.S. when he was

14. Learning English in middle school

proved difficult, but he gained a love

for teaching and eventually earned a

master’s degree in distance learning.

He has kept a busy career in sales, but

still finds time to give back. Due to the

early arrival of their twins, Tim and wife

Elaine started the non-profit, Friends of

NICU (friendsofnicu.org). Their mission is

to help families spends more time with

their sick babies.

Describe your foray into fatherhood.

When my wife and I were dating, we

talked about wanting a big family

should things work out between us.

We both said that four would be a

nice number. Our firstborn, Kevin (18),

arrived on Mother’s Day, 2003—perfect

pregnancy and delivery. Our twins, Matt

and Ryan (16), arrived 10 weeks early and

spent 10 weeks in the Neonatal Intensive

Care Unit, and our last one, Jacob

(13), was delivered exactly on time.

Perfect analogy for parenting: Constant

rollercoaster ride and you never know

what to expect or which end is up! In the

end, with the right support, we found

our way through it and came out better

because of it.

What’s your parenting style? I love

spending time with our boys and working

on sharing as many experiences and

memories as we can. Anything outdoors:

camping, dirt biking, cars, scuba diving,

hiking, paddle boarding, surfing, biking,

and boating. Anything we do together I

will commit myself one hundred percent

to. I’ve always been involved coaching

their sports teams and even got scuba

certified with our youngest because he

didn’t play a lot of sports at the time.

Giving and volunteering are an essential

part of our family.

How has fatherhood changed you?

It has humbled me and given me a

greater purpose in life. It has also shown

me what the word “grace” really means

and how incredibly important it is in

parenting. Parenting has opened my

eyes to racial inequality and injustice in

this country as well as the mental health

crisis, and I’ve made it a point to use all

the privileges I enjoy to speak out and

speak up.

What life lessons do you hope to impart

to your children? I hope I’ve shown our

boys how important family is and how to

treat their mom and, in turn, women in

general. Be faithful, respectful, kind and

supportive, and always put family first.

The expectation of our boys is to stand

up for those who need it most and realize

how much they can really do to help.

Q&A

Best part about being a dad: Watching

our boys find their way—each

completely different from the other.

Favorite activity to do with the kids:

Anything outdoors but particularly dirt

biking and camping.

Your ultimate dad superpower: Lie

Detector aka my gut instinct. 100%

accurate, however, not always followed.

Best dad advice: I’ve learned that the

best gift we can give our kids is the gift

of time. With four boys, I’ve realized that

every kid develops at their own pace—

sometimes it takes a little extra time and

that’s okay. Ignore the noise, focus on

what matters most.

When the going gets tough… The

importance of family, trust and

unconditional love becomes essential.

We have faced some pretty tough times

and without the trust and unconditional

love of my wife, we never would have

pulled through it.

GIVING BACK

ORGANIZATIONS AND RESOURCES

FOR THE LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY by LINDA HOLDERNESS

June is

Pride

Month.

The timing

marks the

anniversary

of the

Stonewall

uprising

against a

police raid

on gay

bars in

Greenwich

Village in

1969.

For Sacramento and most of the

country—and even much of the world—this

is when the LGBTQ+ population celebrates

its achievements and honors its quest

for equal rights. One of those rights, the

right to marriage, has allowed the union of

100,000 same-sex couples in California—

with more than 5,000 of them in our threecounty

area.

Other goals may remain elusive—such

as 100% acceptance—but parades of

hundreds of people hoisting rainbow flags

would have been daring not too many

years ago.

With all these changes, and even

despite them, the LBGTQ+ population

has special needs that local community

agencies strive to fill. The organizations

and resources we list here meet a variety

of these needs, along with many others

that offer complementary services.

Services that could benefit the oftentimes

marginalized members of our community.

SACRAMENTO PRIDE MARCH

AND FESTIVAL

This is Pride’s signature event in our area.

Sacramento’s festival, produced by the

Sacramento LGBT Community Center,

resumes in person this year on June 11 and

12 at Capitol Mall. (Placer and El Dorado

counties held their festivals in May.) More

than 22,000 participants are expected

to gather for food, exhibits, information,

entertainment, and all-around

camaraderie. From 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. both

days, the march begins at 11 a.m. on

Sunday at Southside Park. Admission

is $15 for two days or $10 for one. VIP

tickets are $150. sacramentopride.org

SACRAMENTO LGBT

COMMUNITY CENTER

Besides sponsoring the Pride Festival,

the community center offers a range of

resources for LGBTQ+ people, including

safe daily respite for youths between

noon and 6 p.m. Other help includes

career coaching and job searches, legal

advocacy, HIV testing, mental health

counseling, shelter assistance, adult

respite on Tuesdays and Thursdays

and much more. The Center also

makes referrals to LBGTQ+-affirming

professionals. Their colorful new home

stands at 1015 20th Street, Sacramento.

Open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 6

p.m.; Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Game On

Trying Our Hand at Pickleball

by TERRY CARROLL | photos by TAYLOR GILLESPIE

I’ve played tennis for a large

portion of my adult life and

I absolutely love the game.

So, the first time I heard the

term pickleball (PB) I giggled

a bit and said incredulously

“pickleball—really?”

Now, the time had come to actually

play a little and see what all the hoopla

was about. Because, if you haven’t

noticed, it’s taking over every park and

tennis club in the region and beyond.

We were fortunate enough to play for

the first time at Spare Time Sports

Clubs’ Johnson Ranch Sports Club in

Roseville, where you can now play on

24 brand new beautiful PB courts.

I’ve heard a number of descriptions

of PB over the past couple of years,

but you will see many describe it as a

combination of ping pong, tennis, and

badminton. You play with a paddle

much like in ping pong; it’s light and

essentially becomes an extension of

your arm—like most racquet sports.

The pickleball itself is hard plastic

and is essentially a wiffle ball. For you

tennis players, this takes a little bit of

play to get used to as the ball moves

and bounces differently. The game can

be played both singles and doubles

formats, and standard games are

played to 11 points and must be won

by a 2-point margin. (Tournament play

can be 15 or 21-point games.)

You serve with an underhand swing to

an area of your opponent’s side of the

court. At that point, play begins much

like any game. However, like ping pong,

the ball must bounce in the opponent’s

court before you can return. No volleys

are allowed. The server, if they win the

point, will then serve from the other

side. This will go back and forth until

that side loses the point and the serve

moves to the other player or team.

Then, play is on until one side hits out,

misses, or nets the ball, and the serve

changes sides. Like ping pong, you only

score a point when serving.

With the basics out of the way, we

started to play a little and I quickly

understood why everyone is playing

this game—IT’S JUST FUN! You and

your opponents are concentrating

on play but there’s an intimate and

fun feel about the whole game that

comes across quickly. And, unlike

tennis, the skillset to play is a little

less complicated, yet, the mental side

of the game and the strategy can be

very intense.

I’m in the 55+ age bracket (my wife’s

giggling in the background saying

“add another +”). You might have

heard that that’s the perfect age

for this game—and you would be

right, except, the statistics show

that PB is being played by everyone

WHERE TO PLAY

When you’re ready to hit the

courts, you are going to find

quite a few places to play. In

fact, every community in the

region offers places to learn

and play this terrific sport,

both indoors and outdoors.

One great resource is the

USA Pickleball Places2Play

app. It will map out many of

the best places to play the

sport in your area.

from young children to those with

even more ‘+’ signs than me! I would

recommend that you get out there

and give it a shot. Chances are you’ll

get hooked, get a nice little work out,

get those competitive juices flowing,

and just have great fun with old

friends and new.

You can always do a quick

online search as well,

and find that all our local

communities offer courts

in their parks, as well as

instruction, tournaments,

and more. Pickleball is a big

deal and continues to grow

at an incredible pace.

One standout is Spare

Time Sports Clubs with

locations that include

Broadstone Sports Club in

Folsom that has 8 courts,

Gold River Sports Club

that has 10 courts, and the

brand-new expansion at

their Johnson Ranch Sports

Club in Roseville that boasts

24 new courts—making it the

largest pickleball complex

in Northern California. All of

these clubs are perfect for

both kids and adults, as well

as all levels of instruction.

ASK THE

EXPERT

by EMILY PETER-COREY

Q: HOW DO I HELP MY

"QUARANTINE PUPPY"

TO BE ALONE WHILE I

GO BACK TO WORK?

A: The most important thing

you can do is to implement

your plan before going back to

work. Start by leaving your dog

for short periods of time and

gradually increase the time that

you are gone. Leave music on

or maybe the TV so that there

appears to be a presence for

them. If you crate your dog,

make sure to give them a nice

treat when you put them in the

crate. This will make it a happy

and positive place. It’s crucial to

make sure you're giving your dog

a lot of exercise when you are

home—this will make the down

time easier for them to bear.

If you need help with exercise,

it's always useful to hire a dog

walker.

chronic illness, I relied on intravenous vitamin therapy weekly.

I am grateful to have the ability to bring this invaluable service

to our local area today! The IV Lounge provides convenient

access to affordable, high quality IV Vitamin therapy customized

and administered by our Naturopath. IV vitamin therapy is

optimal fuel that is effective and reliable!

Are you ready to kickstart your body into gear with nutrients?

Do you need a pick me up after a night out with friends? Are

you suffering from a vitamin deficiency? Maybe you are an elite

athlete or weekend warrior in need of quicker recovery? If you

answered yes to these questions, we have a solution for you, IV

Therapy.

IV Therapy can quickly transport high levels of vitamins and

minerals directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive

tract to absorb quickly. IV therapy has been around for over

50 years. It can provide excellent health benefits, including age

management, improved immunity, illness recovery/prevention,

detoxification, and hydration, to name a few.

Regular vitamin supplementation is key to better immunity and

overall good health.

4 Signs Your Home Needs Updating

by KERRIE KELLY

When it comes to deciding

if your home is due for a

makeover, there are two

types of signs to look out

for—functional design details

and design style. Functional

design details include items

that no longer work and may

need replacing, whereas

design style focuses on

personal preferences related

to your aesthetic and lifestyle.

Below we’ve discussed some

major signs to look out for

when considering home

improvement.

Original Elements

When living in an older home, original fixtures will eventually need to be

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

common to utilize vintage pieces, it is important to mix the old with the new to

give your home a fresh aesthetic.

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

54 stylemg.com | JUNE 2022 | /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


updated in the ‘70s, your bathroom may feature older tiles,

shower units, and vanity cabinets; this is a sure sign that your

bathroom is ready for an update. One easy way to mix the old

with the new is to replace some of the furniture and fixtures.

Your space can benefit greatly from a brand-new bathroom

vanity, giving the room an updated look without having to

tear it down to the studs. A new vanity will not only refresh

the design, it will also provide more storage underneath if

you decide to size up or, alternatively, save square footage if

you’re sizing down.

Vinyl flooring and old carpet are another big indicator

that your home needs updating. Though this may not be

original to the home, it is a dated feature that is found in

homes across the country. Often, when pulling out old

flooring, we discover beautiful hardwood floors hiding

underneath. If this is the case, this can be a very budgetfriendly

way to update your home without too much work.

A little sanding, staining, and sealing will do the trick and is

easy enough to do yourself.

Technology Upgrades

There are several ways technology can improve your home,

and homes lacking these improvements will need to be

updated to stay relevant—especially if you plan on selling.

This can be as easy as switching to energy-efficient light

bulbs and upgrading your furnace to offer cost savings in

your monthly energy bills, ultimately making your home

more sustainable. There are also ways to improve your

home’s security through smart home systems like outdoor

cameras, door sensors, and smart locks. These are all new

products that can be a simple upgrade to any older home

and will keep you and your family safe day-to-day.

Up-to-Date Design Style

Other obvious indicators that your design style is outof-date

can include wood paneling, Tuscan kitchens,

vertical blinds, and popcorn ceilings. These are all

very easy fixes that just take a little time and planning.

First, you’ll want to identify a new design style or styles

that meet your preferences, then start budgeting and

planning your projects. When planning, you don’t need to

change everything at once, but you will want to consider

incorporating the latest trends into your new and

improved design.

New Structure + Fixtures

Keeping an eye on the structure of your home is very

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

the maintenance by having your house inspected every five

years, regardless of the age of your home. A home inspection

covers everything from the foundation of your home to the

electrical and plumbing inside, and the roof up top. This is

very important to ensure you aren’t overlooking anything that

could cause problems down the road, and it can also help to

keep you and your family safe. In between these inspections

you can keep an eye out for any obvious issues. This can

include checking your roof for any damages, the foundation

for cracks, and staying on top of furnace filter changes. That

way, when your home inspection rolls around, you aren’t

wasting money to fix things that could have been prevented

with a little maintenance.

These are just a few of the many indicators that signify

whether your home is ready to be updated. Now is the time

to begin planning those large and small renovations to

ensure your home is safe, functional, and up-to-date.

FUN WAYS

HEAT

PARK AT A PARK

Checking out California’s State Parks this summer

has never been easier. Now you can check out a free

vehicle day-use pass from your local public library. All

you need is a library card. You can get day-use entry

to over 200 participating state park units operated by

State Parks, valid for entry for one passenger vehicle

with the capacity of up to nine people or one highway

licensed motorcycle. Visit your participating local

library for details and explore some of California’s

natural wonders! checkoutcastateparks.com

TURN THE PAGE TO A BETTER SUMMER

Reading just five books over summer can help kids

avoid the “summer slide.” Help them stay engaged by

participating in one of the many Summer Reading

Programs offered through your local libraries. Explore

new worlds, win prizes, participate in fun live events,

and help the libraries meet their reading goals. You

can even track progress with the Beanstack app at

participating branches. Programs tend to start in early

June and run through July/August.

It’s that time of the year again! For our 2022

Summer Fun Guide we’re invoking the great

Paul Simon with 50 (or rather 30) Ways to

Spend Your Summer: “Just jump in the pool,

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

camps, outdoor concerts, great local food,

festivals, brews, and cold treats galore in the

pages ahead. But wait, there’s more! Summer

reading programs, guided hikes, star-gazing,

train rides, and glamping, too! The only limit

is your imagination. Slap on some sunscreen,

bring a hat, and let’s go get some fun—despite

the hot summer sun. Oh, and you can keep the

earworm, that’s on the house.

You can be a nature-lover and not want to

cosplay as Bear Grylls. Thanks to the concept

of glamping, getting away from it all can

involve comfort and even clean sheets. At

the top of the list is the visually stunning

option with all the mod-cons. You could be

the envy of your social media followers by

renting a Geodesic Dome in Pioneer. This

groovy, private dome sleeps six, includes

two bathrooms (towels and linens provided),

Roku-equipped flatscreen TV, as well as a

fully equipped kitchen. (Search “Unique and

Secluded Dome Getaway near Sacramento,

California” on glampinghub.com)

On the other end of the glamping scale,

there’s shelter and location that still preserves

the appearance of rugged outdoors—if

you want to maintain credibility with your

outdoorsy friends. Glamp in an off-the-grid

riverfront stone cabin at Consumnes River

Ranch in Plymouth. This cute rustic cabin

sleeps two (bring your own bedding) and

there’s no power or running water, but there is

a private swimming hole and an outdoor fire

pit. cosumnesriverranch.com

downtown trains, and peace trains. How

TAKE A ROYAL TOUR

If you are as sure-footed as a mountain

goat and looking for a different type of

day trip this summer, take the family to

visit Vikingsholm, Lake Tahoe’s secret

castle. This true marvel of Scandinavian

architecture has re-opened for tours and

they’re happening seven days a week

through September 30. Prepare for a

steep hike down to the castle itself (not

advised for those with medical conditions

or mobility issues). Conducted by the

Sierra State Parks Foundation, tickets are

$15 for adults and $12 for students 7-17

and with valid college IDs, active-duty

military, and seniors. Admission is free for

children under seven. Or, skip the hike and

go by boat. Mondays through Wednesdays

at 4:30 p.m., you can cruise the waters

of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay, and

then tour the magnificent Vikingsholm.

sierrastateparks.org/emerald-bay-statepark/vikingsholm-tours

TAKE YOURSELF TO THE FAIR

Can you smell it? The faint smell of

cotton candy and fried dough wafting

on the breeze (mixed with those other

specific farm smells of hay and *cough*

“barn-aroma”). The fragrance can only

mean one thing: It’s time for California

State and County Fairs. Where else can

you eat your weight in food on a stick,

ride a bumper car, squee at baby farm

animals, and buy a wonder mop as seen

on TV? El Dorado County Fair is from

June 16-19 at the Fair and Event Center

Sacramento State Aquatic Center

Effie Yeaw Nature Center

STEP (OR SPLASH) OUTSIDE

Spend some quality time exploring

our region’s beautiful waterways this

summer. For kayaking, you can’t do any

better than Lake Natoma, and you’d be

hard pressed to find anywhere prettier

or quieter on those sparkling summer

mornings. You’re also bound to see plenty

of birds and wildlife as an added bonus.

To rent necessary kayaking and safety

equipment, visit Sacramento State

Aquatic Center (sacstateaquaticcenter.

com/equipment-rentals). Head up the hill

to Upper Lake Clementine at the Auburn

State Recreation Area and enjoy a local

hidden gem. The perfect spot for swimming,

paddling, even hiking, give Lake Clementine

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

Further afield, roughly 15 miles outside

Redding is Whiskeytown Falls at the

Whiskeytown National Recreation Area.

This gorgeous waterfall was a secret

previously known only to loggers and park

rangers. Both dog- and family-friendly,

hikers can get there via a strenuous uphill

but shady 1.7-mile hike on the James K. Carr

Trail (3.4 miles roundtrip; careful, some

sections are steep!). Make sure you climb

the stairs to the upper viewing platform at

the base of the waterfall! (nps.gov/whis/

planyourvisit/waterfalls-of-whiskeytown.

htm). In the less strenuous and closeto-home

category, Ancil Hoffman Park

(home of the Effie Yeaw Nature Center)

in Carmichael is the quiet jewel of the

bunch. Perfect for picnics, family walks

or just a summer stroll, it’s an underrated

beauty that is sure to elicit a smile even

from your grumpiest teenager. There are

plenty of shaded trails, riverfront hikes,

and sprawling grounds—a beautiful

reminder of why we love this area

(regionalparks.saccounty.gov/Parks/Pages/

AncilHoffmanPark.aspx).

HIT THE PERFECT STRIKE

Here’s something right up your alley: Free

bowling for kids this summer, thanks

to a nationwide program called Kids

Bowl Free. As per the program, children

whose age does not exceed a limit by a

participating bowling center are eligible

to register for two free games each

day of the KBF program, all summer

long, courtesy of participating bowling

centers. Local participating bowling

Steve Cook’s Fireside Lanes in Citrus

Heights (stevecooksfiresidelanes.com),

and Gold Country Lanes in Sutter Creek

(goldcountrylanes.com), among others found

GET INTO CHARACTER

Local theater is back! Boy, did we miss

them. Show these hardworking folks

some love this summer. Folsom’s Sutter

Street Theatre presents the Tony-award

winning play based on the bestselling

novel Peter and The Starcatcher from

June 3-July 10. Agatha Christie’s excellent

murder-mystery And Then There Were

None also comes to life August 27 to

September 25 (sutterstreettheatre.com).

Roseville Theatre Arts Academy’s summer

season presents Rogers & Hammerstein’s

Cinderella in June and The Lightning Thief:

the Percy Jackson Musical in August

(rosevilletheatreartsacademy.com). The

summer season of Rocklin Community

Theatre features their production of Catch

Me If You Can: The Musical, based on the

box-office hit movie and thrilling true story,

running July 15-31 (rocklintheatre.org). Good

grief! Placerville’s Imagination Theater

features the Tony award-winning musical

You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown based on

Charles M. Schulz’s classic Peanuts comic

strip, running July 22 through August 7

(itplacerville.org).

Wakamatsu Farm

Face In A Book

STEP BACK IN TIME

Enjoy the beautiful grounds of Placerville’s

Wakamatsu Farm at their Open Farm

Day: Picnic Day on June 18, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

A cultural and historical treasure in and of

itself, Wakamatsu Farm is the site of the first

Japanese colony in America. Enjoy a family

picnic and explore the beautiful grounds at

your own pace, stretch out on a spot by the

lake or at a table under a shady oak. Docents

will also be available to provide more

information about the rich history of the site

(arconservancy.org/wakamatsu).

MAKE A GAME OF IT

Let’s be real. There’s still nothing like a

summer night at home with family and

friends. How about upping the stakes with

a backyard game night? If you’re short

on ideas, some of our nostalgic favorites

include tetherball, cornhole, skittles,

croquet, badminton, ladder toss, lawn

bowls, bocce ball, kubb aka Viking chess

(Google it and thank us later), and good oldfashioned

horseshoes. To the victor goes

the comfiest lounge chair!

BRING A BOOK

You’ve got a pool, a comfy chair, and a cold

drink. All that’s missing is an enjoyable book.

Pick up a bestseller like Amor Towles’ The

Lincoln Highway or Run, Rose, Run by Dolly

Parton (yes, that Dolly Parton) and James

Patterson, and support local independent

booksellers this summer like Folsom’s

Ruby’s Books (rubysfolsom.com), El Dorado

Hills’ Face In A Book (getyourfaceinabook.

com), Cameron Park’s The Bookhouse

(facebook.com/thebookhouseCP),

Lincoln’s The Book Cellar (facebook.com/

mybookcellar), and Placerville’s The Bookery

(thebookeryplacerville.com).

SPIN SOME VINYL

How about some summer tunes on wax

to go with that book? Maybe some classic

R&B, like the legendary groovers Con Funk

Shun and their 1982 album “To The Max.” Or

go modern and spin some Silk Sonic for a

Bruno Mars-Anderson .Paak-led throwback.

You can get all these vibes and more at one

of these great local record stores. Check

out Hi-Tones Record Store in Rocklin

(hitonesrecordstore.com), Cherry Records in

Auburn (facebook.com/cherryrecordsauburn),

The Cave in Folsom (facebook.com/

Time Travel

Take a Tour of Our Region’s State Historic Parks

by DANNAH NIELSEN

It hasn’t been just the

pandemic that has us

reconsidering our travel goals.

Inflation, vaccinations, war,

flight cancellations—it’s been a

perfect storm, and with that,

a perfect invitation to take a

closer look at what our region

has to offer when it comes

to travel adventures. Luckily,

the greater Sacramento area

is a gold mine—literally and

figuratively—for exploration,

and we need to look no further

than our own State Parks.

California State Parks are

not limited to trees and trails

as one might believe. Since

its inception, this agency has

been dedicated to preserving

our unique history, and for

us locals, this means the

rich foothills, our native

ancestors, and the modernday

contributions of industrial

workers. There are State Parks

open to us from the very

Southern Border all the way

to the Northern most tip of

California, with several found

right here within a short day

trip adventure.

Marshall Gold Discovery

State Historic Park

Blacksmith at Empire

Mine State Historic Park

With any park visited, we suggest

maximizing the experience with a

few must-do’s:

• Visit with the docents! These

volunteers are knowledgeable and

passionate, and love to answer

questions.

• Stop and read the signs. For

adults, the educational signs are

a great refresher for all the things

we were taught in grade school.

For children in tow, these signs are

great conversation starters.

• Take the well-beaten path.

Yes, the museums and historic

buildings are always time well

spent, but often—and not much

further away—are trailheads to

some of the most beautiful hikes

California has to offer.

• Always check social media or

call ahead to learn the most upto-date

operating hours.

Empire Mine State

Historic Park

10791 East Empire Street,

Grass Valley

Located in Grass Valley (one of the

oldest gold mines in California), this

park has a museum and several

buildings to explore on its grounds

and includes an immaculately kept

garden to stroll. Stray off the main

grounds for shaded hiking trails and

wildflower sightings.

Marshall Gold Discovery

State Historic Park

310 Back Street, Coloma

This park is exactly what its name

suggests—the original location

of the first discovery of gold. In

addition to a top-notch museum,

this state park is located along

the South fork of the American

River, which offers a relaxing

option for cooling down on a hot

day or taking in sweeping views

of the foothills. Stray off the main

grounds for a view of the historic

Church; stray a little further for

the Dutch Creek Waterfalls.

Locke Boarding House

Museum State Park

13916 Main Street, Locke

This museum is one part State Park

and one part living history of a Chinese

settlement town along the delta south of

Sacramento. The museum is chock-full of

interesting documents, images, artifacts,

and relics (as museums typically are),

but what makes this tour so unique is

being able to walk outside the doors of

the boarding house and actually see the

history that is talked about, in its original

form, along the narrow Main Street that

makes up Locke. We’re all familiar with

our state’s gold rush history, but Locke

is a rare glimpse into another important

part of our history—the contributions

of our Chinese ancestors. Locke is

untouched, colorful, and unlike any other

town in our region. Stray off the path for

a hidden wooden trail hike along a levee

outside of town; stray a little further for

other tiny towns dotting the delta.

Railtown 1897 State

Historic Park

Railtown 1897 State Historic

Park and Columbia State

Historic Park

These might be the best 2-for-1 combo

deal in the entire state! Just six miles

apart, there is something for everyone—

guaranteed.

Columbia SHP (22708 Broadway

Street, Columbia) is lively with multiple

businesses inhabiting the historic

buildings, all designed to give you the

original feel of gold rush living. Find

restaurants, mercantiles, blacksmiths,

candy shops, and all the other little perks

that come with going back in time. While

the fanfare is on Main Street, venture off

the path and check out historic hotspots

located just around the corner, such as

Columbia Kate’s Teahouse.

Railtown 1897 SHP (10501 Reservoir

Road, Jamestown), meanwhile, is a

train museum much like the one we are

Folsom Powerhouse State

Historic Park

9980 Greenback Lane, Folsom

Part of the larger Folsom State

Recreational Area, this area is vastly

different from the rest of the lake

we spend our free time traversing.

The location is a fantastic easy field

trip to see the inner workings and

engineering that revolutionized our

region’s infrastructure with power. If

you’re an engineering fanatic, this tour

is for you, consisting one newer building

dedicated to sharing modern updates

of how power is provided, followed

by additional buildings preserving the

manmade conductors, generators, and

transformers of yesterday. Electricity

has never looked to cool! Venture off

the main grounds for a hike along Lake

Natoma; venture further for some

incredible views from the Folsom Historic

Truss Bridge.

Tandoori Flame

by RYAN MARTINEZ | photos by TAYLOR GILLESPIE


When I take a bite

out of this dish, I am

immediately transported

to the small Himalayan

hostel tucked away

in the picturesque

mountains of McLeod

Ganj. The butter chicken

from Tandoori Flame

took me right back.

Garlic Naan

Samosa Chaat

a soft, chewy interior.

They are then soaked in

a sugary cardamom, rose

water, and saffron syrup.

The juiciness of the syrup

explodes in your mouth,

followed by a tender

dough that is soaked

through with that amazing

sweetness and hint of

spice.

Being one of just a few

patrons at that time, the

service was incredible, and

everyone was extremely

friendly. This quiet, non-pretentious space

has the bold flavors (and spiciness) you

would expect of a good Indian restaurant.

So, the next time you have a hankering for

Indian food, give Tandoori Flame a try. You

might not be transported to the Himalayas

like I was, but you’ll come pretty close.

Palak Panner

Tandoori Onion Kulcha

Tandoori Flame is quietly

tucked away next to an

Indian grocery store in the

‘burbs of Roseville, awaiting

each person with a friendly

vibe and excellent service.

Although pleasant, the dining area almost

doesn’t do justice to the bold and vibrant

flavors upon which their success lies.

The first time I ever tried Indian food

was in New Delhi when I was 17-years-old.

I had no idea what to expect. The spices,

the smells, the textures, and the colors

were so intoxicating that I felt I had to

try everything. Yet, like many westerners,

there was one dish that I couldn’t have

enough of: Murgh Makhani, commonly

known as Butter Chicken.

When I take a bite out of this dish, I

am immediately transported to the small

Himalayan hostel tucked away in the

picturesque mountains of McLeod Ganj.

The butter chicken from Tandoori Flame

took me right back.

The dish is typically made from a

combination of spices including turmeric,

cumin, red chili powder, and garam

masala. The chicken is tenderized in

a yogurt marinade with ground garlic,

ginger, and the aforementioned spices, and

cooked in cream and (as the name suggests)

butter. In the case of Tandoori Flame, I felt

like the sauce was a bit more yogurt-heavy,

providing a slightly “tangier” flavor, but it was

enjoyable nonetheless. We ordered a side of

Garlic Naan—an indulgent Indian flatbread—

to accompany it, resulting in the perfect

combination. No fork needed!

Our second dish was Palak Paneer, a slow

cooked spinach dish with fresh ginger, garlic,

herbs, and spices with paneer, a firm Indian

cottage cheese. The smooth, creamy sauce

topped atop a Tandoori Onion Kulcha (think

naan with onion and herbs) was a winning duo.

We ordered all of our dishes spicy, and

they were SPICY. My love of spicy food goes

all the way back to childhood, so I am often

disappointed when I order a spicy dish and

it doesn’t deliver. Tandoori Flame definitely

delivers on the spice. If you are on the fence

about your comfort level for spicy food, take it

down a notch.

Finally, we finished the evening with an

order of Gulab Jamun, one of my favorite

Indian desserts. Gulab Jamun is made by

combining khoya (milk solids) and flour into

a dough that’s kneaded into small balls, then

deep fried at a low temperature, resulting in

Gulab Jamun

HOURS: 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. (Wednesday-Monday);

Closed Tuesday

TRY THIS: Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala,

Palak Paneer, Lamb Curry, Tandoori Onion Kulcha,

Samosa Chaat, Mango Lassi, Gulab Jamun

DRINKS: No alcohol (license pending)

Brazilian-American fusion cuisine is conveniently located on East Bidwell

that opened in 2021 and they’ve brought their culture and food to Folsom

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

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

rest of the food. For my main course I had the BBQ Picanha Sandwich. I

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

fat, and is quite flavorful. The sandwich also has a yummy garlic sauce,

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

demi baguette! They offer chicken, pork, salmon, and tri-tip sandwiches,

too. Pizza is also an option—from pepperoni to Brazilian calabresa and

everything in between. You'll also find salads on the menu. The biggest

surprise—and it was a very pleasant and tasty surprise—was the dessert.

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

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

bananas, cinnamon sugar, and mozzarella cheese. I know, the cheese threw

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

several towns to have it again. — by JULIE RYAN

Light Beers

by LORN RANDALL

Anne Bonny Blonde Ale

DarkHeart Brewing

4339 Auburn Boulevard, Sacramento, 916-333-1192, darkheartbrewing.com

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

Wench” Cynthia Lee of DarkHeart Brewing describes their Anne Bonny Blonde Ale.

Brewed with biscuit malt and presenting a “subtle hop character, Anne Bonny Blonde

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

with a true pirate, Anne Bonny Blonde.

Type III Squareback Pale Ale

Red Bus Brewing Company

802 Reading Street, Suite A, Folsom, 916-467-7790, redbusbrew.com

Combining the love of automobiles and beer with a taste of nostalgia, Red Bus Brewing

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

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

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

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

Sea T hrift Kolsch

Moonraker Brewing Company

12970 Earhart Avenue, Suite 100, Auburn, 530-745-6816, moonrakerbrewing.com

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

beer that's brewed following the traditions and ingredients of Germany, Bavaria,

and the Czech Republic. “Observe the bohemian floor malted barley with notes

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

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

palate with this tasty, easy-drinking brew.

Gold Rush Lager

El Dorado Brewing Company

6051 Enterprise Drive, Suite 102, Diamond Springs, 530-558-4188,

eldobrew.com

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

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

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

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

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

Golden Eagle Mandarin Wheat

Loomis Basin Brewing Company

3277 Swetzer Road, Loomis, 916-295-2739, loomisbasinbrewing.com

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

Company has captured some in their Golden Eagle Mandarin Wheat. Made with locallysourced

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

for warm spring and summer days. Refreshing and full of the hearty flavor wheat beer

brings, it’s also a favorite, so get some before it’s gone!

Did You

Know?

The Tower Theatre opened

on November 7, 1940 with

the film Too Many Girls

featuring Lucille Ball and

Desi Arnaz.

It was the last major

downtown construction

before WWII.

It was remodeled and

reopened in 1955 with the

film Strategic Air Command

starring James Stewart.

The City acquired the

Tower Theatre in 1989 as

a donation from Angelo

K. Tsakopoulous for the

cultural enrichment of

Roseville residents.

The City renovated the

theater and it reopened in

2003 as a 260-seat theater

in the round.

Several theater groups

operated there over the

years via a partnership with

the City.

The Tower Theatre was

sold to Hillsdale College in

February of 2022. Hillsdale

College is still developing

their plan for activation of

the space but ultimately it

will continue to be used for

the benefit of the arts and

for educational purposes.
