PUBLISHER'S Letter

EDITOR'S NOTE

M

y favorite time of the year is finally here! This issue represents a milestone, two full years as a monthly publication and our 30th issue. For those who have been with us since the beginning, thank you! Your loyal readership is much appreciated and we look forward to many more years with all of you! Read on for a recap of the last 30 issues with some behind the scenes insight in our Thirty, Flirty and Thriving spread. Last month, we had the opportunity to be a media sponsor for Sacramento Fashion Week. We were able to see designs from emerging designers at Federico Beauty Institute, as well as the spring and summer, and fall and winter showcases. Such amazing talent in our town and such a privilege to be a part of an amazing event. Congratulations to Sacramento Fashion Week for celebrating their 10th anniversary!

“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.”

Our fashion feature this month is full of fun, spring prints and colors that are trending this season. Thank you again to our friends at Button Up Boutique for providing the outfits and styling our girls! Always on point month after month!This month we are also kicking off our annual color issue. This was an exciting addition as it represents several different colors with local home décor items, statement fashion pieces and delicious cocktails. This spread has a plethora of fun items for all, so please read on to see how adding a little color to your surroundings can lift your spirit.March is also our family health issue, where we broke down one of the most controversial topics in health today: child immunizations. Be sure to check out the story to hear what both sides have to say about the debate. We also had the privilege of featuring Pete’s Restaurant & Brewhouse in El Dorado Hills, where we talked with the owner, Danny Militaru, about the food, atmosphere and the community. Take a peek at the Sip & Savor opener to see some incredible food and learn all about this amazing establishment. Be sure to try the seared Ahi tuna, yum! As always, thank you for your loyal readership, and we’ll see you in April!

As we release March 2016, this celebrates our 30th issue! Everyone here at Lavish would like to reflect our journey over the years and how thankful we are to have the opportunity to produce the best lifestyles publication in the area. We are glad to say we are thirty, flirty, and thriving! A comical reference from the popular movie, “13 Going on 30”. In a funny twist of fate, this month also celebrates our Publisher’s last month of being 30. – Shhhh! Our first publication launched in May 2013 where we had the privilege of shooting our first

fashion spread on location with our resident real estate expert, Debi Ambroff, at one of her gorgeous properties she had listed at the time. We have been blessed to have been able to work with Debi on a monthly basis ever since. That first year went by in a flash and before we knew it, our bi-monthly start turned into a monthly production after only five issues. Since then, it has been a nonstop run of late nights, coffee and deadlines. There was a little fun thrown in, as we introduced our release parties, monthly video

presentations, sponsorships and community events. We have also been fortunate enough to have been nominated for a few Maggie Awards over the past couple of years. All of which we can attribute back to our communities support and partnership. Without our readers and advertisers, there would be no magazine. And for that, we are forever grateful. Thank you again for your continued support, and here’s to another 30!

October 2015 Cover It took a crew to lift Shasta Smith’s gorgeous Triumph motorcycle on top of Nar Bustamante’s Dekton countertop in his El Dorado Hills showroom. Truly a group effort! This issue was such a big hit, we couldn’t help but go big with the release party complete with a DJ, fashion show, photo screen and delicious food from Mikuni’s and Sellands. This was also the party where the Lavish team tricked our publisher and added a blooper reel to the anniversary video, unbeknownst to her, as it was played in front of all 150 guests. Be sure to check out the video on our Facebook page or homepage of our website. Lavishlivingmagazine.com

May 2015 This issue celebrated our 20th issue with our first gate fold cover. Our release party was scheduled on the gorgeous Aji Japanese Bistro patio – when the storm of the year hit El Dorado Hills, literally 45 minutes before our start time, ruining the entire set up. Luckily, our neighbors at Face in a Book took us in and allowed us to host in their beautiful location.

August 2015 Our Lavish Burger Feature was such a huge success and by popular demand, a few of our restaurant partners have kept the burger on their menu to this day!

February 2016 Lavish was a media sponsor for this year’s Sacramento Fashion week where our February cover featured the “Face of Sacramento Fashion Week 2016” with Christine Alward. Our magazines were placed in all the VIP bags at each nights events. Was a great event as they celebrated their 10th Anniversary.

December 2015 The debate continues on who was the cover model as the perfect flame was executed to produce this amazing cover! With multiple attempts and bartenders to capture this image, this has become quite the controversy.

LAVISH ON LOCALS

From her positive outlook on life, and permanent smile on her face, you might not believe that she suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis - a chronic auto-immune disease that causes pain, stiffness, swelling, and loss of function in the joints, which can also spread to organs. “For me personally, one of the biggest struggles is that Arthritis is known as an ‘invisible disease.’ This means, while I may look normal on the outside, I can be in excruciating pain all over my body and no one would know,” she explained. “It is because I understand these struggles and because I have been broken to the depths of my soul because of this disease that I find I have grown an appreciation for life that words cannot describe.” From an early age, Jones was given the opportunity to step into a public speaking role for her Rheumatoid Arthritis. As she grew older, the focus changed from spreading awareness about Arthritis to focusing more on defying the odds and overcoming obstacles while still pursuing her dreams. In 2014, she was nominated for the “Emerging Leader of the Year Award” by the Sacramento Chapter of the eWomenNetwork, one of the largest female business networks in the United States. She was flown to Texas for the International Conference in 2014, where she had

“Why judge someone when we know that we all face different battles of our own? Let’s elevate our minds and each other.” the opportunity to sign the CEO and Founder of eWomenNetwork, Sandra Yancey, as her personal business coach and mentor. “It was through her guidance and this network that I have spent the past two years training, listening, learning, and experiencing some of the top motivational speakers in the world; from speakers on Oprah to CNN,” she said. Having been the VP of Philanthropy and President of her sorority, Alpha Chi Omega, at California State University, Sacramento, she has maintained several of her connections and speaks at various events including classes, assemblies, and PanHellenic (Greek life). One of Jones’ favorite events to speak at is the Sorority Recruitment 16

LAVISH LIVING MAGAZINE | MARCH 2016

Workshops. “Very few things are more stereotyped than ‘sorority mean girls.’ However I want to change that, or at least be a part of the change, not only for sorority women, but all women,” she said. “Each time I have done these talks, it is so rewarding to have the girls come up after and want to be part of the same change.” She just launched her YouTube channel, simply titled 'Morgan Jones,' and is currently working on a Women’s Leadership Academy and International Sorority Conference in the summer months. She founded Forever Friday®, a clothing line created with the dream to inspire people to live in the moment while giving back, donating to local charities such as Make-A-Wish, Stomp Out Bullying, Susan G. Komen-Breast Cancer, and Loaves and Fishes Homeless Shelter. What’s with the name? It’s simple. Stop “waiting for Friday” and make the most of the moment you’re in now. The mission is to spread good vibes and laughter, one shirt at a time.The newest campaign that just launched is The Beautiful Change – a movement that emphasizes compliments over comparison. Once people purchase their apparel, they are asked to post a photo or video wearing the shirt that answers the question, ‘what makes you feel beautiful?’ “We are not interested in society’s beauty standards based on comparisons and competition,” Jones said. “We want to create a community of people who are beautiful inside and out.”

Proceeds from every purchase go toward financial grants awarded to female creatives pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors dedicated to empowering others. For more information on this, you can visit thebeautifulchange.com.

CHARITY SPOTLIGHT MARCH OF DIMES

March Dimes BY J. NALANI KAHAE

On January 3, 1938, our own president Franklin D. Roosevelt founded the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis (or NFIP). The polio he contracted as an adult became a wellknown story eventually, but while his disease remained secret, his empathy for others in handi-capable situations grew. While it was originally a charitable foundation that raised money from the wealthy at Presidential birthday parties, it quickly became evident this fundraising method could not compete with the pace the disease was spreading among our nation’s children. After FDR pleaded with the public for their help, singer Eddie Cantor jokingly appealed the nation to send the President dimes (thus the name change “March of Dimes”). It worked! The White House received 2,680,000 dimes and thousands of donated dollars. It was because of this overwhelming support that an effective polio vaccine was developed and distributed thus ending the national epidemic. In 1958, March of Dimes® shifted its focus to infant mortality and birth defect prevention and has since become the leader in this area of specific research. For the past twelve years, their own Prematurity Campaign has been a strong aspect of the organization. To put things into perspective, they have done the research for you. Out of the 15 million premature babies born, 1 million of them do not survive. While healthy babies cost an average of $4,389 in terms of medical bills, those born premature cost almost $50,000 more.

18

The Sacramento area alone has an 8.5% preterm birth rate (B grade status). The California Chapter (headquartered in San Francisco) focuses on programs to support the babies and the mothers during and after their pregnancies. Whether it is through NICU Family Support® and pregnancy support, or through programs such as Becoming a Mom™ and Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait, March of Dimes® California works to help the cause by improving infant health, providing support and education provisions, and even through various grants to different organizations. Additionally, our California Chapter works with organizational groups and projects to further improve the health for both mom and child – both statewide and local.

LAVISH LIVING MAGAZINE | MARCH 2016

The organization’s March for Babies® event is coming to Sacramento on Saturday, April 30. A walk designed to raise money for mothers-to-be, infants in crisis, support for their mothers and to aid further research, participants will be marching a 3-mile course starting at the State Capital’s West Steps on 10th Street. You’re invited to join the contagious positivity as families, companies, friends, individuals and leashed pets march to help the babies.

FIRPTA AND ESCROW

LO L

The disposition of the U.S. real property interest by a foreign person (the seller) is subject to the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act of 1980 (FIRPTA) income tax withholding. This IRS Rule requires the transferee / buyer to determine if withholding applies, and if so to remit the withholding to the IRS. If the buyer has determined FIRPTA withholding applies, the buyer and seller may mutually instruct the Escrow Officer to deduct the set amount, gather the applicable forms, and remit them to the IRS on their behalf.

• The sales price of $300,000.00 or less and the buyer(s) signs the FIRPTA Buyer Occupancy Affidavit, which states they are acquiring the real property for use as a home and that either the buyer or a family member of the buyer has definite plans to reside at the property for at least 50% of the number of days the property is used by any person during each of the first two 12-month periods following the date of transfer. Note immediate family members are: spouse, brothers and sisters (whole or half blood), ancestors, and lineal descendants. • The seller provides a certification stating that the seller is not a foreign person which means they are a U.S. resident or a resident alien that lives in the U.S. and has a U.S. tax identification number. • The buyer or seller receives a waiver from the IRA that excuses or reduces the amount of the withholding prior to close of escrow.

TRENDS

FOR SPRING 2016

BY KELSEY WEHSELS

IT’S THE TIME OF YEAR WHEN FASHION SHOWS ARE DEBUTING THE NEW AND UPCOMING TRENDS FOR SPRING. WE HAVE SOME OF THE LATEST TRENDS THAT HAVE GRACED THE RUNWAY IN THIS YEAR’S FASHION SHOWS.

GLITTER Glitter can be a tough art to master, but when done beautifully, can look amazing. Try using half-domed crystals adhesives anywhere on your eyelid to add some sparkle. You can go for another unique look and create a cat eye along your lower lash line. If you are applying glitter eye shadow, be sure to touch up. Make up can rub off during the day, especially anything with glitter. Use a setting spray on your look, then dust off the loose sparkles throughout the day to keep your look fresh. Glitter is not limited to eye makeup. Try adding some fun glittery color to your nails or glittery lip gloss for a bold, shiny finish. 30

LAVISH LIVING MAGAZINE | MARCH 2016

FRENCH INVASION The traditional French manicure has long been a favorite in the nail industry. This season, nails are seeing a revamp on this classic preference with odd shapes such as angular, oxblood tips and bold colors such as green, orange, and silver. For a small twist on the original design, try the classic white small line and make it modern by leaving a sliver of negative space at the center.

BLUE HUES Whether it be a dark eye shadow or a liner under the eye, blue is making a comeback. While this bold color on the lid can be difficult to pull off, try pairing with a neutral color, such as brown, tan or even grey, to offset the brightness. If you want to use a brighter blue, opt for the matte finish as the shiny finish can make the blue too bold to handle.

HEAD GAMES Several different head wear made its appearance on the runway this year. From simple bands to ornate, elaborate, and decorative pieces, no matter what the style, head gear is in. One of the best things about head bands is that they are the perfect way to keep loose strands out of your face, and can be dressed up or down. A skinny head band makes a sophisticated statement. Opt for one with neutral tones like gold, ivory, or silver. For the perfect way to polish off an updo, try wearing a head band with embellishments such as rhinestones. For a casual look, try a stretchy jersey head band. To keep the look subtle, wear one that matches your hair color.

LOUD MOUTHS This season, let your lips do all the talking with vibrant shades such as crimson, pink, orange, and oxblood. Keep in mind, this bold statement can be powerful. Be sure to line your lips first with a color that matches your lipstick. Once you finish lining, fill in your lips using a lip liner so the lipstick will hold longer. The golden rule of makeup is to choose either the lip or lid. If you’re going for lips, keep the lids subtle with a flesh-toned eye shadow.

DO THE TWIST Simple hair-dos have always graced the runway, from messy buns to beachy waves. This season, the simple two-strand twist is in. For a sleek - not romantic - finish, fasten a pony tail near the nape of the neck, divide the tail into three equal sections, and lacquer each with hairspray before braiding to reduce frizz and fly aways.

Tech 13 Jazz Chair - Furnitalia

Spring Time is the perfect descriptor of the color green. When someone says “spring” you automatically picture grass, plants, and flowers. It has long had the representation of nature and hope. It is also the traditional color of permission and safety – green light means go, green card permits permanent residency.

WHITE CONTAINS AN EQUAL BALANCE OF ALL THE COLORS OF THE SPECTRUM, REPRESENTING BOTH THE POSITIVE AND THE NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF ALL COLORS. IT IS AN ACHROMATIC COLOR - LITERALLY “A COLOR WITHOUT HUE.” IT IS THE PERFECT COLOR FOR INTERIOR DESIGN; PAINT A ROOM WHITE, AND YOU HAVE A BLANK CANVAS FOR ANYTHING.

THE DARKEST COLOR, and the result of absence of or complete absorption of light, black is an achromatic color, which is literally a color without color or hue. In fact, it can be defined as the visual impression experienced when no light reaches the eye (whereas white is the opposite; it reflects light and is the presence of all colors). Black has had many meanings throughout history, including evil and death when people would mourn, they would wear black. And in today’s connotation, it means sophistication and luxury (think tuxedos and limos). When it comes to interior design, black painted walls, chalkboard walls, elegant black wallpaper or even some black accents can change the appearance of your interiors. High ceilings or a lot of natural light seem to be the prerequesites for enjoying black walls in your rooms, but even smaller spaces can look modern and elegant if all the othe elements are chosen to contrast and enhance the effect of dark walls.

Cocktail : Watermelon Basil Martini - Sienna Restaurant

When it comes to interior design, scarlet and red are not for the faint of heart. Considered the color of romance and passion, stimulating red is a design tool that heightens the senses. This living room uses a brighter red, which allows the light to bounce off the walls and create a feeling of a wide, open space. “Red is never boring,” said interior designer, Denna McLaughlin. “A couple of big red chairs are inviting, but I also love red for drapery. When the light comes through the window, it gices the room a soft red glow that makes people want to be together.”

HEALDSBURG

Healdsburg A little town, with a big following

Charming Healdsburg, a small hamlet in north Sonoma County, has long been one of the most popular tourism destinations in California’s wine country and well known for its’ legendary welcoming atmosphere. Our most recent visit to this unique location at the confluence of three appellation valleys-Dry Creek, Anderson and Russian River-reminded us why it’s also one of our personal favorites. Superb lodging choices, critically acclaimed dining and highly regarded wineries really

46

LAVISH LIVING MAGAZINE | MARCH 2016

capture the essence of California’s renowned good life. For everything in this article and much more about Healdsburg be sure to check out their Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau website: www. healdsburg.com

WHAT TO SEE AND DO: Walking around and through the historic downtown plaza exudes a sense of diminutive quaintness where high quality art galleries and boutique shops surrounding the plaza are very inviting


to would-be-shoppers. Our favorite store: One World, an unusual enterprise offering international wares at very reasonable prices. www.oneworldfairtrade.net. As the center of many activities the Plaza hosts summer concerts on the outdoor bandstand, antique fairs and holiday tree lightings plus many of the town’s best events. Hopefully you’ll pick a time to visit when the Plaza is humming with activity. Want to visit maybe the most unique museum in California and the only one of its kind in the U.S.? Then drop into the Hand Fan Museum where premier collector fans-as old as 1735-are on display and valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. www.handfanmuseum. com. The free admission Healdsburg Museum, located in the former history-filled Carnegie Library, is definitely worth a brief visit. Ask for their complimentary self-guided historic building tour map and enjoy viewing these architectural gems you’ll see as you stroll the outlined route. www.healdsburgmuseum. org.  Seeking some adventure? Canoeing or kayaking down the picturesque Russian River or biking the surrounding vineyard areas are very popular pastimes and should satisfy adventurous souls. www.spokefolk.com; www. riversedgekayakandcanoe.com. During the summer you might want to visit Veterans Memorial Park for a picnic on the Russian River beach or a fun swim in the river itself. Interested in “CorkHopping” which is “Sonoma Speak” for wine tasting at multiple stops? Many in-town tasting rooms eliminate the “driving while drinking” issues and Kendall-Jacksonknown for their premier Chardonnays-just off the Plaza has been there the longest and appears busiest. www.kj.com. Thumbprint Cellars tasting lounge, practically next door to the Healdsburg Inn, features excellent limited production artisan wines, an interesting art gallery and charming hostesses. www. thumbprintcellars.com Our favorite nearby Healdsburg wineries, beyond downtown, for

exceptional tasting experiences include Rodney Strong known for first rate Russian River Appellation Pinots and Chardonnays and big name summer jazz concerts; www.rodneystrong. com; long time personal fave, J Vineyards and Winery right next door to Strong is home to award winning sparking wines. www.jwine. com; Ferrari-Carano, in the idyllic Dry Creek Valley viticulture area, has a Healdsburg address even though it’s closer to Geyserville. F-G is as well known for its estate-like edifice and five acres of exquisite gardens as their limited release Chardonnays,  www.ferrari-carano. com. After you leave Carano, we recommend you drive the few extra minutes to nearby Lake Sonoma where a stunning overlook, and a salmon/steelhead hatchery await as well as all kinds of boating, fishing, picnicking, hiking and camping opportunities. www.parks.sonoma.net/ laktrls.html

W H E R E T O S TAY A N D D I N E : Healdsburg has wonderfully diverse options in lodging and for years we’ve wanted to stay at the charming Healdsburg Inn on the Square owned and operated by the highly regarded Four Sister Inns. As a small twelve room inn it’s often sold out but for our most recent visit we finally were able to check into this wonderful property. It was originally built in 1901 but has been remarkably renovated over the years giving guests a more current construction vibe with modern updated amenities yet maintaining their yesteryear feel and decor. It’s one of those rare lodging choices that combines the feel of a small boutique hotel with that of a bed and breakfast inn. Complimentary breakfast buffets served in a chic sun room overlooking the plaza, afternoon fresh cookies, ongoing coffee and tea, evening wine and hors d’oeuvres are hallmarks. Delightful guest rooms feature original moldings, fireplaces, high ceilings, bay windows or balconies, private baths...many with jetted spa tubs or antique claw foot tubs. Our experience was so positive we can easily add the inn to our list of all-time favorite wine country lodging choices. We are also hoping we have the opportunity to check out more of the highly rated sixteen Four Sisters properties here in California and encourage our readers to do the same, www.foursisters.com

OTHER LODGING CHOICES YOU MIGHT CONSIDER INCLUDE: The historic 1883 Honor Mansion providing a number of very pleasant surprises. No way can it ever be described as a typical country inn. It has the appearance of a B and B and prices include creative full American breakfasts, delectable evening appetizers and wine. When you factor in all the resort features like bocce ball, croquet, tennis, golf putting green, swimming pool and even a small basketball

HEALDSBURG

court with all equipment, balls, and racquets included at no extra cost, it REALLY is a rare and distinctive 13 room combo resort and B&B; www. honormansion.com. Another history-filled inn is the classic 1881 Victorian Madrona Manor, where classic antique furnishings and accommodations are equaled by their Michelin starred restaurant. www.madronamanor.com Both inns are about a mile from downtown. Prefer something really hip and town-center? You might like to try the new H2 Hotel or the slightly older sibling-Hotel Healdsburg on the Plaza.  The H.H. is home to famed New York celebrity-chef Charlie Palmer’s multi-awarded Dry Creek Restaurant, www. hotelhealdsburg.com, www.h2hotel.com. Seeking a special value? Look no further than the Dry Creek Inn, A Best Western Plus property, about a mile from Plaza central, that frankly amazed us at the quality of their quite stunning new Tuscan building. A weekday rate, sometimes lower than $100/night depending on season and availability, includes a spa tub, fireplace and refrigerator in each room and continental-plus breakfasts. We often have diminished expectations when rates are this low but were blown away by this exceptional bargain. www.drycreekinn.com

OTHER RESTAURANTS IN TOWN OF SPECIAL NOTE: Willi’s Seafood and Raw Bar remains a locals AND visitors favorite, www.willisseafood.net; Costeaux French Bakery, open since 1923, is so much more than crème-de-la-crème baked goods. Although only open for breakfast and lunch, it’s a must visit for either meal and be sure to try their mouthwatering cinnamon walnut bread and imaginative sandwiches, www.costeaux.com. Cafe Lucia is a relatively newcomer in town where creative Portuguese and Brazilian dishes struck a very pleasant chord with our palates. www. cafelucia.net. Healdsburg Bar and Grill is a fun

48

LAVISH LIVING MAGAZINE | MARCH 2016

place with popular al fresco dining, a lively sports bar atmosphere and satisfying comfort food. www. healdsburgbarandgrill.com. Oakville Grocery, near the Plaza, reminded us that their deli sandwiches are still the best in town, www.oakvillegrocery. com For more baked goods and homemade ice creams at reasonable prices be sure to drop into Downtown Bakery and Creamery, www. downtownbakery.net  

F I N A L O B S E R VAT I O N : The rare combo of Historic meets Hip really works in this attractive small “burg” with a large rep. A reminder-for more dining/lodging/shopping/events and all info on H-Town go to: www.healdsburg. com   (Publisher’s note: next month our travel team will be bringing readers information about their visit last month to Long Beach, home to the Queen Mary and gateway to Catalina Island)

Pete's

S I P & S AV O R

Restaurant and Brewhouse

“Fun, easy-going, chill,” says owner Danny Militaru. These are the words he spiritedly uses to describe his particular Pete’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. As soon as you walk through the front door, guests will certainly notice the wonderful air of familiarity carefully strewn about the place. In fact, it parallels Danny’s own fresh energy.

El Dorado Hills Town Center could be considered the heart of the city itself. And just as if it were watching over the charms below, Pete’s sits at Town Center’s crown next to the movie theater. This is an appropriate location for one of the first businesses to make the center its home. The fact it still stands seven years later after having launched in a less-than-ideal economic time, is a testament to a learned resilience and seems to be par for the course in terms of how it all came to be in the first place. At a young 18-years-old, Danny found himself a mentor in Pete’s Restaurant and Brewhouse founder and franchisor Steve Presson. From bussing tables at the original Pete’s to detailing cars for Steve, Danny was able to put his work ethic to good use and it was noted. After a conversation essentially about life direction and goals, it was Steve who helped ignite the confidence to say, “If you can conceive it, you can achieve it.” A year later, Danny was promoted to a manager position and by age 23, he was ready to launch his own store. He did just that a few years later; however, the success to this story doesn’t truly take off until 2008, when his second store opened in El Dorado Hills. Recognizing the restaurant to be the “perfect dinner and a movie” sort of environment, Danny speculates that to be one factor to the success they’ve created. Attributing much of the busyness to align with new film releases and bargain days next door, Pete’s sees a steady flow of patrons throughout the week.

52

LAVISH LIVING MAGAZINE | MARCH 2016

PETE’S RESTAURANT AND BREWHOUSE

Among these patrons are those whom Danny labels as their business core – “the families and the kids around here.” They keep an open-door policy for parents and their children and offer them the kindness of what Danny refers to as “No Child Left Behind” pizza dough to play with as they will. He believes in the kids of the community and, thus, tries to stay as involved as possible in helping to fundraise for surrounding schools, kids sports teams and the PTA moms. One of the most popular menu items are the famous knots - pizza dough tied and baked in a buttery glaze, topped with fresh parmesan. It is also available with a cinnamon sugar glaze. The pizza is a must-try and a must-have for guests. Pete’s “Monday Madness” special is a perfect time to get your fix. Although the name was specifically crafted as a disclaimer to the madness expected with such a special, it is certainly not a deterrent. With half-off prices for all their pizzas (whether dine-in, takeout or delivery is your pleasure) and $4 pints, it’s a full day but one you’d be wise to participate in. Speaking of pints, Pint Nights are thrown every 4-6 weeks. This is a first-rate opportunity for craft beer lovers to come out for these promotional evenings. Brewery representatives showcase their brews, answer questions, and provide samples and miscellaneous items.

Pete’s entire menu is available for both delivery (within the EDH 5-mile radius) and takeout – sans alcohol, of course. The restaurant is open Sundays through Thursdays from 11AM – 10PM and Fridays through Saturdays from 11AM – 11PM.

DINING OUT WITH NICK

• No matter what, no matter where, be thankful that I am able to enjoy a meal out with my family and friends. That attitude of gratitude will speak volumes and generally give me a better overall disposition in all things. • Praise in public, correct in private.  If I have something positive to say, I am going to tell the waiter, the manager, the busser, the host, yelp, snap, tripadvisor and whoever else wants to listen to praise.  If I have criticisms or something not pleasant to say, I will address the manager directly and afford them the respect of allowing them to correct the issue themselves.   • If I truly love a place, I will tell as many people as possible through as many mediums as possible.  If I do not love a place, even after a few tries, I will keep it to myself and visit other restaurants. • I will shake as many hands and introduce myself to as many people as are serving, waiting on or assisting me.  Face to face contact and true hospitable interactions are dust in the wind; yet for me that solid interaction is an important part of what we do • On my way out I tip appropriately, shake hands with the team that was serving us and thank them earnestly for their efforts (this means more than anything).

Social media has turned the hospitality industry into the three rings circus of the service industries. Sites like yelp, urbanspoon, tripadvisor etc. have given a loud voice to the public who feel that their experiences should be chronicled and recorded by the internet filed as “stuff that is important to me but nobody else really cares about.” The potential was ripe for these sites to help the public share recommendations and love for their favorite restaurants, hotels, and bakeries. Unfortunately these sites took a turn for the worse and have offered a bully pulpit of entitlement to the hords of negative minds. Folks who are all too happy to internalize their medium-well angst so they can foster it into a one-star review for that little mom & pop bakery

And through all of this; hospitality and face-to-face interaction is becoming a lost art.  The public used to tell a server if they needed more honey mustard.  Now, instead, in a fit of social media martyrdom the public foregoes that fourth cup of dressing for their fries; secure in the knowledge that the world will hear their cries of anguish when they give that Chili’s a scathing two star review. At the beginning of the year after opening my second restaurant, I decided that I wanted to try to change this through leading by example.  I started following a few rules religiously when it came to eating out.  

Overall a few handshakes, a lot of smiles, a few minutes on a computer and a changed outlook on dining out has allowed me to have a GREAT time wherever I am at. Every restaurant, dive, food truck, fast food joint, pizzeria and even take out Chinese food place I have been to, has offered me a better experience when I arrive with a smile, some rose colored glasses, a word of thanks and an attitude of gratitude. Get out there, shake hands with the staff, let the 5 star reviews flow, drown out the negative, give suggestions to the owner or manager, say thanks to the busser and high-five the hostess.  Just  remember how blessed we all are for being in the position we are in to be able to enjoy, and not judge, the fruits of this labor.

WINE PICKS | WINDMILL RIDGE WINERY

LO C A L LO D I WI NES THIS MONTH'S PICK FROM LOCAL LODI WINERIES.

WINDMILL RIDGE

WINERY BY J. NALANI KAHAE

Wander through the front gates onto the lawn perfumed with roses and you will quickly understand the grace that is Windmill Ridge Winery. Laced with mulberry and pecan trees, it does not take too many imaginative steps to understand its appeal as an escape from the busy humdrum of daily life. Ever since founders Bill and Stephanie Prioste first opened their doors in 2007, the winery has become a local treat and favorite. Alongside their friend Jorge Violante, the winemaking and vineyard and winery management proved fruitful for their 3.8 acres; and Windmill Ridge grew in popularity. By 2014, Bill and Stephanie decided to enjoy their retirement and sold Windmill Ridge to the Violante family. It has stayed a familyrun operation from the get-go with Jorge “continuing his legacy as winemaker and winery manager.” His youngest son, George, helps with the operations and management, and George’s fiancé, Jeimy Lopez, has taken on the responsibilities as the event planner and coordinator. Jeimy says, her and George’s 2½-year-old daughter Avabella is their family’s “drive and enthusiasm.” As far the wine goes, Windmill Ridge continues to bring their awardwinning touch. Known for their “easy drinking softness and well-balanced fruity character,” all their reds are estategrown. From the seven different grapes they grow (Souzau, Touriga, Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera, Malbec, Merlot 56

and Syrah), fourteen wines are produced. Among them are five different customer favorites including the Merlot (2010), Barbera (2009), Cabernet Sauvignon (2010), Barbera/Malbec Blend (2010) and Doce Fim (2007). The Merlot (2010) is smooth with cherry and plum flavors, hints of oak, chocolate and soft tannins. The Bronze Award winning Barbera (2009) has a cherry fragrance with rich berry tastes. The Cabernet Sauvignon (2010) holds a hint of chocolate in its fragrance and has black cherry, blackberry and oak flavors. The Barbera/Malbec Blend (2010) has cherry and French oak aromas and tastes of wild berry and blackberry. The Platinum Award winning Doce Fim (2007) is a Portuguese Port wine with red licorice and cordial cherry flavors and a smooth spicy finish. As the Violante family continues to grow and rebrand the winery, Windmill Ridge is still open to the public and events are still being held. Guests are invited to their upcoming Comedy Night on March 5 and wine club member exclusives are being released March 26. Tasting room hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

WINE PICKS | SHADOW RANCH VINEYARD

LOC AL FO OT H I L L WI N E S THIS MONTH'S PICK FROM LOCAL SIERRA FOOTHILL WINERIES.

Winery as director of vineyard operations where he stayed until it was time for independent ventures. Patterson purchased 80 acres as his own; of that acreage, 10 were used to plant the first vineyard that same year. Organically planted and produced, Shadow Ranch is now nearly 100% solar powered. This, of course, paved the way for their aforementioned vineyard management company where they consider themselves “grape gardeners” and help other vineyards grow and manage their grapes. Among their award-winning wines, the four most popular include their Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Red Blend Sheriff®. (The latter two are conveniently available in your local markets!)

Shadow Ranch, in its beautiful and rustic charm, transports visitors back to a more historical time as it crowns a peak in the Sierra foothills. Celebrating their small family-operated winery’s 10th anniversary this year, owners Sam and Kimari Patterson have much to be proud of. Sam says he’s spent his entire career in the wine industry. In a way, the related interest has been handed down over three generations with his family’s 58

LAVISH LIVING MAGAZINE | MARCH 2016

background in agriculture, wine collecting and importing. They’ve been able to keep an ode to familial tradition through their logo (One horse, two shadows, three images for the three generations of Sam Pattersons!) and perhaps also through their vineyard management company (appropriately named “Sam Patterson Vineyard”). After graduating from the first combined Viticulture and Enology class at UC Davis in 1998, Patterson went on to work in Napa Valley as Charles Krug Winery’s viticulturist. He later moved on to Amador County’s Renwood

Their Zinfandel brings raspberry, cherry and blackberry aromas with black pepper, oak and spice flavors. Notably, their Zinfandel has garnered multiple accolades in 2014. The 2011 Select was awarded both Double Gold and the Frank Herbert Award at the El Dorado County Fair Wine Competition. The 2011 won Silver at both the California State Fair and San Francisco Chronicle wine competitions. The 2012 and the Reserve were both awarded Gold from the State Fair and SF Chronicle respectively. Multiple award winner red blend Sheriff® (Gold at the California State Fair Wine Competition and Silver at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition) blends Shadow Ranch’s Syrah, Petite Syrah, Tempranillo, Zinfandel, Cabernet and Grenache. With blueberry, cherry and blackberry aromas, the Sheriff® brings oak and black pepper spice to your palate. Estate grown, and Shadow Ranch’s only white wine, the Sauvignon Blanc (2013) is a medium-bodied wine characterized by its nectarine and gooseberry, floral aromas and Meyer lemon notes. It also won Silver at the 2014 California State Fair Wine Competition. Double Gold winner at the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon (2011) has currant, blackberry and blueberry aromas with green olive, earth and black cherry flavors. Other wines include the GSM Blend, Barbera, Tempranillo and La Puerta. Tours and tasting room hours are Friday through Sunday from 11 AM until 5 PM.

SEASON DELIGHT CARROTS

BY J. NALANI KAHAE

S I P & S AV O R

Carrots. Do they really need much introduction? These beloved orange (although sometimes white, yellow, red or purple too) root vegetables are probably one of the least “fussy” as they require little in the way of preparation and are just as easy to grow. Toss them into your bag as a raw on-the-go snack; julienne them into a “voodle” (“vegetable noodle”) dish; bake them into a carrot cake; or pickle them into salads. Whatever your pleasure, carrots remain one of the most popular vegetables. Interestingly enough, these nutrientdense vegetables were not originally grown as food.

Rather, they were grown for medicinal purposes. To this day, carrots are the human’s underdog as far as health benefits are concerned. Regular carrot consumption has shown to reduce cholesterol levels and relax tension in blood vessels and arteries thus aiding in heart disease prevention and blood pressure reduction. Its antiseptic and antibacterial properties as well as being a source of Vitamin C make the carrot a natural immune system booster. The high fiber content in carrots (as with many vegetables) aids

in digestion. Different studies have also linked eating carrots as helpful in reducing the risk of different cancers (notably lung cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer). Other benefits include but are not limited to lowering the risk of macular degeneration, improving eyesight, improving oral health, reducing the risk of stroke and, regulating the blood sugar in those suffering from diabetes. Regardless of your reason for indulging in this simple root vegetable and whether you like to eat the taproot itself or the greens too, it’s a world favorite enjoyed in a variety of ways.

ETIQUETTE

FINAL THOUGHT

SOCIAL MEDIA

Etiquette BY KELSEY WEHSELS

The big world wide web is full of social media sites including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google +, and Tumblr. While there is no specific handbook on social media etiquette, there are a few guidelines you should follow when logging in and signing on. FRIENDING – Remember who you’re friending. They will have access to your personal information, so don’t reach for the “accept” button before you feel comfortable sharing information with that person. I once had a professor in college who said he would never friend request a student, but if a student friend requested him, he would always accept. “But be careful,” he warned. “I am your professor. Which means I don’t want to see photos of you out partying the night before a paper is due and tell me some lame excuse the next day for not having it done.” The lesson? Be mindful of who you friend because they will be able to see what you post. STATUS UPDATES – While some people take to social media as their own personal soap box, it can be bothersome. From political rants to airing out dirty laundry, some people don’t want their news feed consumed with personal tirades. Like most things, it’s great in moderation, but be mindful of oversharing. TAGGING – Everyone wants to put their best foot forward when it comes to sharing things on the internet. And just because you look great in that photo, doesn’t mean you should tag your friend who might be in the middle of saying something or still chewing their food. Aside from photos, ask a friend before tagging your location as well as they might be a more private person and don’t want to disclose that information. If you ask before you tag, I’m sure they will afford you the same courtesy. FOLLOWING – Just because someone follows your Instagram or Twitter, does not mean you are obligated to follow them back, and vice versa. And don’t make it personal. Just because someone doesn’t accept a friend request, doesn’t meant they have a secret vendetta against you. They might not have seen your request or that you started following them. USE - It’s always fun to be on social media, whether you are looking through your friend’s photos from their recent vacation to Cabo San Lucas, or reading the latest Buzzfeed article. However, like most things, there is a time and place. Don’t be addicted to your social media accounts to the point where you ignore the people you are with. Enjoy the company you have while you’re out, and save the social media for a later time. 64
