BEST PLACE TO SHOW A VISITOR

Readers voted downtown as the Best Place to Show a Visitor, including the latest addition to City Park, – the Big Red Chair.

Plenty to enjoy in scenic downtown Brentwood residents take pride in their town, and for our readers, the heart of the city is the No. 1 place to show off. Voted Best Place To Show a Visitor, the downtown area came away with gold honors for the 2019 Best of Brentwood award. From quaint shops and historic buildings to beautiful parks and family-centric events, the area sings with small-town charm. Delta Cinema Going to the movies can cost a small fortune for the average family, which is why the theater located on First Street in Brentwood has become the local’s go-to place. According to Cinema Treasures, an online guide to movie theaters, the theater was built in the 1930s and originally had one screen. A second screen was later added in the 1990s to showcase second-run movies. In 2000, Cinelux purchased it, showing current movies at the lowest rates, and business boomed. Shows that run before 6 p.m. are only $5 for all ages. Shows after 6 p.m. are $5 for children and seniors and $7.50 for those ages 13 to 54. “Great atmosphere with the best popcorn in town,” said Isaac Carson in an online review. Night out on the town In an area that’s becoming a popular wine country destination, places to sip and socialize are not far apart in downtown

Brentwood. Co. Co. County Wine Co. is a wine and beer bar co-owned by the Bloomfields, a local farming and winemaking family. Crown & Crow offers beverages made with quality ingredients and many local flavors. Several others include Mannheim Social Club, 311 Oak Street Pub, Sweeney’s Grill and Bar, Zephyr Grill & Bar, Cap’s Oak Street Bar & Grill, , Blue Iguana Bar and Brentwood Craft Beer and Cider. “Excellent wine selection and a friendly atmosphere!” said Erik Faulkner of Co. Co. in an online review. Hidden bits of history While buildings like the Brentwood Press and Cap’s Oak Street Bar & Grill have obvious historic significance, given their architecture, there are other lesserknown remnants of a bygone era to be found. The location of Sweeney’s Grill and Bar is actually one of the oldest buildings downtown, built in the early 1880s. By 1888, it became a saloon and ice house, where people could also take baths for mere pennies. It was also the scene of an unsolved murder, dating back to 1915. Another piece of history is hidden in plain sight. Most people ignore the block of wood near the rails that cross Oak Street in the gravelly open space. But that block is all that remains of the station from the San Pablo &

18 | Best of Brentwood 2019 | www.thepress.net

Tulare Railroad, which arrived in 1878. Seasonal festivities The heart of Brentwood changes with the seasons, as it becomes a place for scarecrows or snowmen built by residents and local businesses. The ice-skating rink, situated in the parking lot near the corner of Oak and Second streets, makes its appearance once a year. And the holiday parade has been a hit with the community for going on 40 years. City Park City Park has been remodeled over the years, but it has maintained its ability to attract residents of all ages for events, parties and daily fun. Black-and-white historic photos of Brentwood located in city hall, show picnic benches beneath the trees with the townspeople gathered around – not a far cry from what it looks like during the yearly Oktoberfest and other celebrations. The park also offers waterplay during the dry, hot summers and the large lawn provides the perfect setting for a quick game of frisbee. The community center nearby is often the site of art shows, weddings, quinceaneras and more. And a rose garden with a statue of a farmer, honoring our agricultural history, the beautiful fountain or gazebo and the latest addition to City Park – the Big Red Chair – are all treasured spots to snap a photo.

BEST NONPROFIT

John and Carissa Zink, second and third from right, founders of the Shirley Ann Foundation, won gold this year for Best Nonprofit.

The Shirley Ann Foundation – Offering a chance at new beginnings “ A new nonprofit has already earned gold recognition from the residents of Brentwood. The Shirley Ann Foundation was launched in late 2018 by Carissa and John Zink with a mission to help women and children escape cycles of abuse. Inspiration to launch the nonprofit stemmed from the similar experiences they had growing up. Both of their mothers (Shirley and Ann) were strong women, who, despite escaping abusive situations, raised them with opportunities to thrive. “We were both put in a good position in life because of our mothers,” said John. “So this was a way for us to give back and honor them by helping other women and children in need who might just need a helping hand.” In its short time, the nonprofit has already partnered with Shepherd’s Gate and donated $20,000 to help build an educational center for the Brentwood facility. “Right now, the women have to go off campus to go to libraries or schools for

 We were both put in a good position in life because of our mothers. So this was a way for us to give back and honor them by helping other women and children in need who might just need a helping hand. 

– John Zink, co-founder Shirley Ann Foundation continuing education,” John said. “In the fragile state they’re in, it places them in a vulnerable situation to be out in the public.” With both Shirley and Ann present, the foundation hosted a gala in June to help raise that initial wave of funding, and it has committed to raising at least $80,000 more. Once built, Shepherd’s Gate will name the educational center after the Shirley Ann Foundation.

36 | Best of Brentwood 2019 | www.thepress.net

“Shepherd’s Gate provides a program for women and children that have become homeless due to poverty, addiction and abuse,” said Stephanie Fischer, Shepherd’s Gate director of development and marketing. “We’ve seen over 12,000 women and children come through our doors, and right now, we have an over 80 percent success rate of our women not going back to the lifestyle that cause them to be homeless… The Shirley Ann Foundation is one of those family foundations that has chosen us to be able to help us support these women and children go through their program.” Looking ahead, the foundation is in the process of setting up the next gala to raise funds, and will adopt families in need for the holidays while continuing to keep a pulse on opportunities to help in the community. “Other (service projects) will naturally reveal themselves to us,” said John.

Community-Minded Residents

When it comes to communityminded residents Brentwood voters just couldn’t decide on one special person. Below are the individuals who received the most votes from our readers for their dedication, altruism and generosity to the community.

Photo by Tony Kukulich

Vicky Little, owner of Sip and Scoop in downtown, was voted gold this year as Brentwood's Most Community-Minded Company.

MOST COMMUNITY-MINDED COMPANIES

Catering to the community When it comes to serving the community, two local businesses have won the hearts of our readers. Sip and Scoop, located in downtown Brentwood, secured the gold honor, and Willy’s Bagels & Blends took silver in the Best of Brentwood’s most community-minded category. “We try to incorporate different aspects of serving the community with our business,” said Sip and Scoop owner Vicky Little. “Whether it’s with supporting business owners, schools or nonprofits, we really do try to give back with either a percentage of our sales or with products.” The business that first took off quite literally with a mobile food truck recently opened a storefront location on Oak Street. But the truck is still utilized to continue community work. It has appeared to cater birthday parties at Shepherd’s Gate, a local women and children’s shelter. And it has shuttled coffee and treats all around Northern California to bring a bit of comfort during times of disaster. “We brought our truck to Santa Rosa, Napa and Vallejo during the fires,” Little said. “At first, I was feeling a little bit selfconscious about it, because I thought, ‘They’re just going to laugh when I drive up with ice cream,’ but people were coming up to the window and saying, ‘We’re so happy you’re here’ – just having a hot drink, having an ice cream.”

Little said the Sip and Scoop team was able to serve those who had been evacuated, along with veterinarians and farmers helping in the large animal evacuation sites and first responders and volunteers—many people who had already been working 24-hour shifts to assist during the emergency. In addition to volunteering and working with local nonprofits, Little noted another large mission for the business was to cultivate a welcoming place for families. “With five kids, family is very much a part of my life, so it feels natural to support other families,” said Little. “That’s why we have games and we don’t have TVs in here. We want to encourage face-to-face talking.” The two Willy’s Bagels locations in Brentwood are also locally-owned. The Richardson family runs the operation, providing not only bagels voted the best by the community year after year but giving back to those in need. “We’ve been here since 1996, and the community is our focus,” said Ron Richardson. “We work with local nonprofits and have the largest toy drive in town.” Sip and Scoop is located at 234 Oak St. For more information, visit www.facebook. com/sipandscoopcalifornia. Willy’s Bagels has two stores located by each of the local high schools, 1155 Second St. (Liberty) and 390 W. Country Club Drive (Heritage). For more information, visit www. willysbagels.com.

Best of The Rest

Photos by Tony Kukulich

Brentwood's popular Concerts in the Park series and expansive farmers market were voted Best Community Events by Press readers.

In keeping with the tradition of The Press’ yearly Best of Brentwood magazine, we recognize the Best of The Rest to further capture the other amenities and businesses Brentwood has to offer.

BEST HIKE OR STROLL Brentwood residents know this little corner of East County is rich with scenic views and walking trails. Coming in with gold honors, readers recommend Round Valley, followed by Marsh Creek with silver. Each place provides a different experience. Routes along the Round Valley Regional Preserve offer sweeping views of Mount Diablo and dirt paths climbing around the foothills of open space and nature. Marsh Creek also offers beautiful scenery, but the paved trail winds through town along the creek.

BEST ROMANTIC DATE When it comes to a candlelit dinner with that special someone, readers voted downtown Brentwood for their top picks. Zephyr Grill & Bar and Cap’s Oak Street Bar & Grill received gold and silver respectively, with Vic Stewart's garnering a bronze for their tasty cuisine. Each restaurant offers a gourmet selection of steaks or seafood. Make sure to try Zephyr’s Tenderloin Tips Diablo appetizer.

BEST GOVERNMENT SPENDING When it comes to municipal dollars, the citizens of Brentwood agree the new library located on the corner of Oak and Third streets across the street from City Park was money well-spent. Coming in second for government spending in this community-centric town was Concerts in the Park. The concerts take place in City Park during the summer and offer families a free night of fun.

BEST COMMUNITY EVENT On that note, the readers of Best of Brentwood deemed Concerts in the Park as the gold recipient for best community event, with Farmers Market taking silver. The concerts typically run every Friday throughout the summer, showcasing a variety of local sounds, while vendors line the nearby parking lot to provide treats. When in season, the farmers market is a staple of the downtown area, offering organic produce options along with other foods and items for purchase.

68 | Best of Brentwood 2019 | www.thepress.net

BEST LOCAL BAND And what is a concert in the park without our local bands? The community of Brentwood recognized Stepback, a band comprised of teens, as the No. 1 local band and Breakfast Klub with the silver award for bringing us the sounds that fill our summers and other events.

BEST PARK It should come as no surprise by now that the residents love downtown Brentwood. Voted gold for the best park was City Park, offering water features, a play structure, plenty of open grass and barbecues for family picnics and social gatherings. Taking silver was Veterans Park, which boasts a stunning playground built for all abilities, bocce ball courts, barbecues, volleyball, a skate park, a water park and more. It is also the site of Veterans Day commemorative celebrations and veterans banners, which are hung from light posts featuring different service members’ photos.


Now with three locations, Love for Learning’s preschool, preparatory kindergarten and after-school programs provide children with the academic skills needed to succeed in primary education, while encouraging social and emotional growth. A low student-teacher ratio helps children develop a passion

for learning that carries them through their education. See ad on page 63.
