You’ll Love Your Life at Trilogy. ®

J

ust a short drive from enchanting San Francisco in the charming city of Brentwood is Trilogy® at The Vineyards—and yes, this gated, 55+ community is surrounded by breathtaking vineyards. Here, you can enjoy a fun, vibrant lifestyle and have daily opportunities to forge connections with others in the same stage of life, explore a wide array of activities, and discover new and long-forgotten passions. Trilogy at The Vineyards is unquestionably beautiful. Picture gorgeous homes surrounded by rolling hills, miles of recreational trails, olive groves, and of course, the vineyards for which the community is named. But this picturesque setting is about more than the beauty that surrounds it. Trilogy offers resort living at its finest. Life here centers around Club Los Meganos, the ~34,000-squarefoot clubhouse with an impressive list of awesome amenities. Dine al fresco at Alice’s Kitchen. Soak up the sun at the resort-style pool. Get fit at the indoor lap pool or the Delta Athletic Club. Relax, renew, and rejuvenate at Sawa Spa, which has its own outdoor private salt water spa and garden retreat. For those looking to take up a new sport or for those who enjoy spending time playing a sport they love, Trilogy also has the Los Olivos Tennis Pavilion and bocce courts. Club Los Meganos has lots of areas for socializing as well: the Adobe Billiards Room, the Helak Grand Living Room that overlooks the hills of the community, Abby’s Gourmet Studio where cooking classes, demonstrations and wine tastings take place, and the Exploration Lounge, to name a few. Members get to know each other through clubs—for everything from

photography to biking to winemaking— and events like outdoor concerts and daytrips to sporting events. Now for the homes: Trilogy at The Vineyards has nine single level floorplans to choose from, ranging from ~1,520 to 3,111 square feet, starting in the $500,000s. All homes embrace open-concept, outdoor-centric living. Homeowners rave about the stunning great rooms, gourmet kitchens, master retreats, and well-appointed bathrooms—plus the relaxing outdoor spaces, some which are accessible through a rolling wall of glass from

BEST NEWS AND GOVERNMENT SPENDING

Residents of Brentwood and surrounding areas gather at the new library as officials cut the ribbon. The amenity won recognition with gold for Best Government Spending and silver for Best News.

Paving the way for the future When it comes to Best Government Spending, voters gave the thumbs-up to Brentwood’s new library with gold recognition. The library also won a silver award for Best News. After years of planning, fundraising and building, the new library at the corner of Third and Oak streets opened to the public this year in September. The library officially opened with the cutting of the ceremonial ribbon by Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor, followed by speeches from local officials and dignitaries who welcomed over 5,000 people to the library. The day included refreshments, music, dancing and activities. Liz Fuller, senior community library manager, savored the day after nearly four years of anticipation. “What a day,” said Fuller. “People literally gasped as they walked through the front doors, looking at the openness of the building, the natural light

coming through all of the windows and just the newness of it all. Our aim is to make this library a community gathering place for everyone, either to work quietly on their own, to meet with others to work on projects or to use our conference room for meetings. This library belongs to the community, so we will do our best to provide services that reflect what the people in Brentwood want and need.” The library is located at 104 Oak St. For more information, visit www. facebook.com/brentwoodcalibrary or call 925-516-5290. From libraries to roads and infrastructure, Best of Brentwood voters picked the new Balfour and Highway 4 interchange a close second as the city’s Best Government Spending. However, the highway’s construction came away with gold for Best News. The Balfour Interchange

18 | Best of Brentwood 2018 | www.thepress.net

Project opened to eastbound traffic on Highway 4 in July. “We achieved a major project milestone … when the new eastbound alignment opened to the public,” said Ivan Ramirez, a CCTA construction manager. The opening marks the completion of the first stage of construction of the elevated alignment over Balfour Road and includes new on- and off-ramps. The project, managed by the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), is intended to cut down on traffic backups and improve the safety of that stretch of road by eliminating the traffic light at Balfour Road and allowing traffic on Highway 4 to flow continuously. For more information on the Balfour Road projects or any of the past improvements, visit www.4eastcounty.org.

Residents flocked to the Brentwood Farmers Market to enjoy the fresh produce, vegetables and more at the popular downtown event.

FAVORITE COMMUNITY EVENTS

Community events at the heart of Brentwood When it comes to family-friendly fun with a hometown feel, Brentwood has perfected the art of community events, and readers this year voted the popular Concerts in the Park a gold-medal winner. Concerts in the Park is an 18year summer tradition that connects families and friends under starry night skies at Brentwood’s City Park. “The concerts are family-friendly and appeal to all ages, from tots to seniors,” said Bruce Mulder, Brentwood Parks and Recreation director. “It’s a free event with a casual setting that allows you to enjoy downtown Brentwood.” The concerts take place every Friday night from mid-June to the end of August, bringing families and friends together to dance, picnic or play at the park while listening to live music. “We feature all genres of music from pop, classic rock, country, tribute bands, jazz, blues, alternative, big band, soul,

rhythm, salsa and the blues,” said Mulder. For more information about Concerts in the Park, visit https://goo.gl/4Vomss. Featuring local fresh fruits, vegetables and an array of organic items, baked goods, flowers and more, the popular downtown market, located at First Street, took the silver medal this year. “One of the biggest reasons the farmers market is so popular is the draw of community,” said Shawn Lipetzky, regional manager of the Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association. “At the market, you see so many people – running into friends, family, teachers, coaches, co-workers and classmates.” The market traditionally runs from March to mid-November and highlights local growers. “We have quite a few producers from East Contra Costa County,” said Lipetzky. “The local culture of farming

is so important for the community.” For more information about the Brentwood Farmers Market, visit www.pcfma.org or www.Facebook. com/BrentwoodFarmersMarket. The downtown Christmas parade remains a perennial favorite and was voted in the top three community events by our readers. Hosted each season by the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce, the holiday parade features local groups, organizations, music and more, including a visit from the jolly old elf himself. The parade is the chamber’s largest free event of the year and draws families from all over East County to downtown Brentwood. “We are always excited about the holiday parade – it’s a tradition,” said Laura Young, chamber office manager.

For people who have been sedentary, any amount of physical activity is beneficial, including walking, swimming and water aerobics. Start out slowly and gradually increase the pace and duration of such activities. Low-intensity activities – such as taking a short walk or raking leaves – won’t raise your resting energy expenditure as much as high-intensity activities will, but they have other advantages. They reduce body fat and build muscle, and muscle burns more calories than fat does. Regular physical activity of any sort temporarily curbs your appetite. People joke that after a workout they feel extremely hungry, and that as a result they promptly indulge in a snack. Exercise raises resting energy expenditure, so people continue to burn calories at a relatively high rate. Therefore, a moderate postexercise snack does not erase the benefits of exercise in helping people to control their weight. Common sense tells us that in order to achieve and maintain significant weight loss, you need to burn more calories than you consume. But, did you know that flaxseed products might be able to help? The oil is actually a powerful antioxidant that can help to boost your metabolism. Whole or ground flaxseed provides you with dietary fiber that makes you feel fuller and omega-3 fatty acids that could possibly curb your cravings for sweets. In addition, fiber makes us feel more full on less food, making it less likely that we will overeat.

Jim Wangeman’s, right, Harvest Park Bowl in Brentwood was selected by readers as the Most Community-Minded Business for 2018.

MOST COMMUNITY-MINDED

Caring for the community If Brentwood has an unofficial ambassador, it is the city’s official mayor – Bob Taylor. Readers voted Taylor their Most Community-Minded Resident, and it’s easy to see why. Between ribbon cuttings, town events, school happenings and the implementation of city favorites, such as the Big Red Chair and the return of the downtown gazebo in City Park, Taylor is the face of Brentwood and takes great pride in his city and its residents. “It gives me satisfaction as it’s my job and my obligation to promote my city in all aspects,” said Taylor. For the silver medal, readers voted their favorite dentist, Dr. Lajuan Hall, DDS, as Most Community-Minded Resident for her ongoing work in and around the community. Dr. Hall is very active in the California Delta Association’s Harvest for Smiles, an annual event that provides free dental care. “I raise money and do volunteer work with them,” she said. “This organization does a lot of good.” Hall, the owner of Brentwood Children’s Dentistry, was also recently awarded the UCSF 150th Anniversary Alumni Excellence Award for distinguished service in her field of dentistry.

She decided to follow her dream and purchased the salon. However there was a missing link – that link was Shannon Jackson who later joined the team as a business partner. Staci and Shannon both believe in family first. They share the same vision, morals and high standards. In the spring of 2018, Staci went to Parma, Italy, to visit the Davines headquarters to learn more about what makes Davines so special and to see and learn about the trends in Italy.

LIFESTYLE AWARDS

Press file photos

Best of The Rest Here at The Press, we recognize the other great amenities and businesses Brentwood has to offer in what we call The Best of the Rest. This year’s picks showcase what makes this town great. BEST PLACE FOR A HIKE OR STROLL Round Valley is a perennial favorite with voters looking for The Best Place to Hike or Stroll in Brentwood. Coming in with a silver medal was the beautiful Marsh Creek Trail followed by Brentwood’s Creekside Park as a popular spot to enjoy the outdoors, all of which is great news for Brentwood residents. BEST NONPROFIT But nothing says Brentwood like the area’s sense of community, and that was apparent in the choices voters registered for Best Nonprofit in 2018. At the top of the list was the Rotary Club of Brentwood with a gold star for the organization’s ongoing work with local youth organizations and community groups as well as its commitment to providing humanitarian service. For more information, visit http://brentwood.rotary5160.net.

Left: The Veterans Park in Brentwood was voted by readers as the city’s favorite park. Right: Celebration Preschool was voted a silver star by readers who appreciate the nonprofit organization’s year-round giving and support of the community.

The silver award winner is Celebrations Preschool. Open year-round, this nonprofit Christian organization offers various activities, programs and weekly care options for children ages 2 to 5 years old. The group is also a great neighbor to the community and recently launched a senior day program for the area’s older population. For more information, visit www.celebrationcenter.com. Coming in third, Furry Friends Pet Relief was recognized by readers for being a group with big hearts for those fourlegged friends in need. Furry Friends Pet Relief helps more than 3,000 pets in the Bay Area stay healthy with free or low-cost vaccines, preventative medical assistance, micro-chipping and free or low-cost spay and neutering, all in an effort to keep pets in the homes that love them and out of shelters. For more information, visit http:// furryfriendsfoodre.wixsite.com/fffr. BEST PLACE FOR A ROMANTIC DATE Many of the Lifestyle awards read like an itinerary of great places to show off Brentwood’s prime locations, and The Best Place for a Romantic Date is certainly

72 | Best of Brentwood 2018 | www.thepress.net

one of those categories. Once again, Zephyr, Cap’s Oak Street Bar & Grill and Vic Stewart’s took the top gold, silver and bronze, respectively, for romantic couples. BEST PLACE TO SHOW A VISITOR Best Place to Show a Visitor hit the gold mark again this year with voters saying yes to downtown Brentwood’s variety of restaurants and shops, followed by The Streets of Brentwood and its assorted and growing retail spot. Hannah Nicole Vineyards won again this year in the bronze category for its awardwinning wines and spectacular property. BEST LOCAL BAND And if you’re downtown in the summer, it’s likely you will catch one of three Best Local Band winners at an outdoor event or Concert in the Park. Breakfast Klub, Nova and Jeffrey James Band were this year’s popular vote-getters. FAVORITE PARK Rounding out the category of Favorite Park was Brentwood’s Veterans Park, downtown City Park and Creekside Park.
