BRENTWOOD’S 19TH ANNUAL READERS’ CHOICE

Brentwood businesses are the heartbeat of this community. From the generosity and integrity to the tenacity and pure grit, Brentwood small business owners, employees, and customers continually show us what perseverance really is.

– Jade M.

To be honest we love everything about Brentwood, it's the perfect balance between small town feel and being accessible to everything we may need! We love taking part in local events like the farmers market, the local U-pick farm stands, and so much more!

– Sara P.

What I love most is that the businesses here in Brentwood not only provide a service but they’re also involved in the community. They help with fundraising, events and help contribute to our town and the people that live here.

– Victoria O.

Derek, Betsy and 13-month-old Mia Strain got some fresh air while maintaining the appropriate social distance from other visitors during a hike at Round Valley Regional Preserve in Brentwood. The park was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but trails remained open.

BEST PLACE TO SHOW A VISITOR, BEST HIKE OR STROLL

Ample locations to visit, hike and stroll Surrounded by the scenic foothills and orchards of East County, Brentwood is home to beautiful outdoor scenery. In The Press’ Best of Brentwood Readers’ Choice Awards, residents voted Round Valley Regional Preserve and Marsh Creek Regional Trail as their first and second favorite places to hike or stroll, respectively. Suzan Ferrer, an East County resident, said she utilizes Round Valley’s trails to get exercise for herself and her horse. “(I love) riding horses on the trail at Round Valley, enjoying coyotes, foxes, turkeys and squirrels,” Ferrer said. “Riding the Round Valley trail helped me complete a 25-mile endurance ride. I’ve been enjoying the beauty of nature by horseback at Round Valley for many years.” Round Valley and Marsh Creek Trail

are both part of the East Bay Regional Parks District (EBRPD). Colin Coffey represents Brentwood on the district’s board of directors and said the parks have been an essential part of resident’s lives during the pandemic. “Round Valley and the Marsh Creek Trail are just some of the gems – along with Morgan Territory, Big Break, Contra Loma and Black Diamond – that the East Bay Regional Park District is proud to maintain and manage for Brentwood residents and the entire East County,” Coffey said. The Marsh Creek Trail runs along Marsh Creek through farmland and suburban areas. It is a paved, multi-use trail and extends 6.5 miles through Brentwood. For more information on Round Valley, Marsh Creek Trail and other parks in EBRPD, visit www.ebparks.org or call

1-888-327-2757. While there are plenty of outdoor amenities to hike and stroll in Brentwood, readers also voted for the beautiful downtown area as a must-visit locale for out-of-town visitors. From the landmark City Park with its new clock tower, gazebo and of course Big Red Chair, to the quaint shops and restaurants lining the downtown streets, there is much to enjoy in the scenic downtown and readers gave it the gold thumbs up this year followed by Round Valley Regional Preserve in second place and the stunning Hannah Nicole Vineyards for wine tasting and local events. Although COVID has suspended some of these activities, residents are ready to get out and explore these local spots as pandemic restrictions lessen.

COVID Heroes What a year it's been for the community of Brentwood! Yet despite the challenges of COVID-19, the city has once again proven when it comes to those who stepped up to help out, we have them in abundance. Below are our COVID heroes for 2020!

Students in the Liberty Union High School District improvised this year with a drive-thru graduation ceremony due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Below, right: Katherine Mund, Osvaldo Vega, Kalee Dutra and Jasmine Chuey enjoyed their meal in Brentwood’s City Park as Liberty High School hosted “A Graduate’s Dinner” for the Class of 2020.

BEST NEWS

Graduation 2020 looked a little different for seniors Brentwood has spoken and the favorite news item in an otherwise dismal year was coverage of the graduating class of 2020. When last year’s senior class lost out on decades of traditional dances, events and rites of passage, the local community stepped up to make them feel special. Yard signs were passed out, sports teams delivered medals door-to-door and strangers waved signs to congratulate a class that was born in the aftermath of Sept. 11 and graduated amidst a pandemic. Joey Miller was a member of Liberty High School’s Class of 2020. He said he will never forget the last day of school in March but appreciated all the district and community did for him and his classmates. “I think what I remember most would have to be our graduation ceremony where we had the cars drive through,” said Miller. “We didn’t get to sit down and have a normal graduation, but we still felt like we were those seniors that were graduating, and they still made us feel like we mattered in the moment.” The entire district worked to ensure each senior was able to walk somewhere, even if it was just through a parking lot. Students were

divided into time slots and allowed to walk up on stage alone, pose for pictures and receive a diploma. “Last year was definitely a very unique graduation, but I think at the end of the day the community really enjoyed it,” said Liberty’s principal Heather Harper. “Families were able to drive up and be right in front of the stage when their student’s name was read and they received their diploma . . . and take some incredible pictures up close which they normally would not be able to do in a traditional ceremony in the stadium.” Carrie Wells, Heritage High School principal, agreed, noting her staff received compliments on their efforts to make each senior feel special. “Many families enjoyed the personal aspect of being able to see their student up close, crossing the graduation stage and being able to celebrate immediately with their senior,” Wells said. “Graduation is the most important and largest event at our comprehensive high schools . . . it is a culmination of thirteen years of compulsory education; therefore, we knew as a district that our seniors needed our attention.”

CommunityMinded Residents When it comes to communityminded residents Brentwood's 2020 voters had plenty of suggestions. Below are the individuals who received the most votes from our readers for their dedication, altruism and generosity to the community.

Photos by Tony Kukulich

Readers gave the thumbs up to Sip and Scoop California, Aladino's Pizza and Del Sol Energy as the Most Community-Minded Companies in Brentwood.

MOST COMMUNITY-MINDED COMPANIES

Catering to the community The Brentwood community has gone above and beyond to help those in need this year. From students organizing themselves to donate personal protection equipment for local businesses, to adults volunteering to shop for their vulnerable neighbors and local food drives, Brentwood residents and businesses have stepped up to help. In The Press’ Best of Brentwood Readers’ Choice poll, residents voted for businesses they thought deserved special recognition. Sip and Scoop California was voted first place. Owner Vicky Little said she was humbled and grateful for the community’s recognition in a town where so many businesses are giving back every day. “We watch every day how our local peer businesses day after day give back in huge ways and hope that we all recognize this and continue to support their causes,” Little said. “Thank you, Brentwood, for continuing to show us that you care about giving back.” Little said she used her business to invest in local youth through employment, build a sense of community with Community Spirit Days, donate the shop’s food truck to local nonprofits and donations that reinvest in the community. Second place went to Aladino’s Pizza, where owner Khristian Buison said he will continue to give back to the community that supports him. “We have been here quite a while, so we owe it to the community to support them,” said Buison. “I bought this place five years ago but this store has been here since 1997 and there’s been

overwhelming support for us and that’s the least we can do, just giving back to the community. It feels really good to be recognized.” Aladino’s donates pizzas to local senior programs, the police and fire departments, schools and sports programs. Buison said he also networks with other businesses to orchestrate give-backs and donations. Bronze honors went to Del Sol Energy, where residents can find a new community mural to visit and pose in front of. Created by local artist Lorin Baeta, the mural was sponsored by the Downtown Coalition through the efforts of Peter Jacoway of Del Sol Energy, whose grandmother owns Del Sol’s building. “We always talked about doing a mural for downtown,” Jacoway said. “My grandmother was always active downtown and in the art society, so she was interested. It just took us to figure out what it was going to look like and the Downtown Coalition was the right source to push it through and get the artist and file for the grant.” The mural can be seen on the east side of the Del Sol building. Sip and Scoop California is located at 234 Oak St., Suite B, in Brentwood. For more information, call 925-684-7710 or visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/sipandscoopcalifornia. Aladino’s Pizza is located at 4411 Balfour Road, Suite A, in Brentwood. For more information, call 925-240-6363 or visit www.aladinospizzamenu.com.

Best of The Rest

Zephyr photo courtesy of Facebook/Farmers Market photo by Tony Kukulich

When it comes to romance, readers voted for the ambience at Zephyr Grill & Bar as the Best Romantic Date location,(left) while the downtown Farmers Market (right) took gold for Best Community Event.

In keeping with our annual tradition of the Best of Brentwood, we offer the following winners whom we call The Best of the Rest - a glimpse at the equally amazing local businesses and amenities found in Brentwood.

BEST NONPROFIT Three local nonprofit organizations took the top spots this year as voted by our readers for Best Nonprofit. The Shirley Ann Foundation, founded in 2018 by Carisssa and John Zink as a way to help women and children escape the cycles of abuse, won gold for the second year in a row. They were followed by the Rotary Club of Brentwood, a mainstay in the community for generations, followed by A Place of Learning, Brentwood's non-profit educational organization.

BEST ROMANTIC DATE When it comes to date night, readers voted Zephyr Grill & Bar as their favorite, followed by Scotties Shutters Brasserie and Attraversiamo. All three restaurants offer a romantic ambiance and a gourmet selection of steaks, seafood and more.

BEST COMMUNITY EVENT Readers voted for the Brentwood Farmers Market as the number one best community event this year and despite the pandemic, the market was still able to carry on with social distancing and the following of county guidelines. Concerts in the Park was not an event that survived COVID this year, but readers still gave the iconic concerts a silver designation.

BEST LOCAL BAND The COVID-19 pandemic didn't allow for much social gathering and music in the park this year, but readers still voted for their favorite local bands Stepback and Breakfast Klub and residents look forward to a return to their summer concerts and other local events soon.

72 | Best of Brentwood 2020 | www.thepress.net

BEST PARK It's no surprise that residents love their downtown City Park; so much so, that it was voted gold this year for best park. Brentwood's popular amenity offers water features, a play structure, plenty of open grass and barbecues for family picnics and gatherings as well as the iconic gazebo, clock tower and the Big Red Chair. Veterans Park came in second and boasts a state-of-the-art all abilities playground, bocce ball courts, barbecues, volleyball, a skate and water park and more. It is also the site of the annual Veterans Day celebrations and the spotlight for veterans banners which are hung from light posts featuring different photos of those who have served.
