love that despite its growth “in Ipopulation and commerce, through good leadership, our Brentwood maintains its wonderful small-town charm. Its merchants are friendly and take a personal interest in their customers and their community.

What I love most about doing “business in Brentwood is that the businesses have maintained their small-town charm even though Brentwood has grown so much over the last 30 years. It seems like even the newer businesses have the same friendly, helpful, respectful attitudes when it comes to dealing with their customers.

Residents looked forward to the Friday evening events in City Park throughout the summer. At right, a display of tomatoes is replenished during the Brentwood Farmers Market. The popular event draws thousands of visitors to downtown Brentwood each weekend.

LIFESTYLE AWARDS

Community is at the heart of Brentwood’s local events While Brentwood continues to grow in size, it has managed to maintain a small-town feel that makes it a wonderful place for residents to live. Events are at the heart of Brentwood, bringing families together to create lasting memories, build traditions and create a strong sense of community. Some of Brentwood’s favorite events combine nostalgia and fun,as well as celebrate the town’s agricultural heritage. The Harvest Festival in downtown City Park is a popular midsummer event for the community and was voted a bronze medal this year by our readers. Brentwood’s Art, Wine & Jazz Festival tied for a silver with the Brentwood Farmers Market this year. The festival celebrated 16 years of providing great music, local wine, beer and art for the community to enjoy. The event, presented by the Brentwood Art Society, closes out each summer and is a free, family-friendly event for all to enjoy. Besides local artists, the festival also features artwork from area schools. “People enjoy the

all-day and night music, local wines, craft beers, local food vendors and local artists,” said Rosalinda Grejsen, president of the Brentwood Art Society. The festival will return Sept. 22 and 23, in 2018. For more information, visit www.brentwoodartsociety. org/art-wine-jazz-festival. The Brentwood Farmers Market, celebrates the community’s agricultural heritage. When the farmers market started in 2004, it didn’t take long for it to outgrow its original location in front of city hall and move to First Street in downtown Brentwood. The market, which traditionally runs from March to mid-November, features fresh produce from local agricultural growers in the community as well as a selection of baked goods, flowers, prepackaged foods and warm and delicious food you can purchase and eat while you shop. “We have quite a few producers from East Contra Costa County,” said Shawn Lipetzky, regional manager of the Pacific Coast Farmers Market

A longtime favorite date-night spot, readers gave the gold star to Cap’s Oak Street Bar & Grill, located in one of Brentwood’s historic downtown buildings. “Cap’s is a great spot for a date night,” said owner Elaine Karadais. “Maybe it’s the charm of the building, which was built in 1922, the warmth of the fireplace or just the overall good feeling you get when you’re greeted at the front door.” The historic restaurant is known for catering to their customer’s needs, including making romantic dates memorable. “We’ve had several couples get engaged here,” said Karadais. “We love helping someone find a creative way of presenting an engagement ring.” They are also known for their delicious food, including juicy, Angus-certified steaks, fresh seafood

LIFESTYLE AWARDS

The Best of The Rest Not all of the Best of Brentwood stars can be pressed onto a store window or hung on an office wall, but they are winners just the same. Here at The Press, we call them The Best of the Rest. Ranging from good deeds and sublime scenes to Most Community-Minded Company and Best Place to Take a Visitor, our Best of the Rest are a wonderful complement to this year’s amazing group of winners. Known as a community that loves to give back, it’s no surprise that readers had plenty of choices for the Most Community-Minded Company. Willy’s Bagels and Blends took top honors in the Most Community-Minded category for their involvement with local schools and charities. They were followed by Got-A-Party, with Homelife Senior Care rounding out this year’s list. In the theme of giving back, this year’s Best Nonprofit was Celebration Center in the gold category, with Delta Networking Partners in the silver spot, followed by Furry Friends Food Relief. Most of the Lifestyle awards read like the itinerary of a proud resident showing off Brentwood’s prime attractions. Best Place to Show a Visitor hit the gold standard this year, with a walk through downtown Brentwood and its myriad shops, businesses and restaurants.
