Fall is time for family, but adults can cut loose as well
all is my personal favorite time of year. Not only do my little ones get to dress up and go trick-or-treating, but the morning breeze is crisp and the afternoons aren’t roasting. It’s the perfect time to relax with a cup of hot cocoa and put on a scary movie, take a nature walk with the kids or see a live show at a theater. For those looking to have a more adult-oriented evening, check out Powerhouse Pub, 614 Sutter St., Folsom. Chris Gardner is slated to perform on Oct. 31 and they have many great bands lined up throughout the month. The nerdy rockers The Spazmatics are taking the stage Saturday, Oct. 5, while Hip Service is scheduled for Oct. 4. Find their schedule at powerhousepub.com.

grand ol’ Gold Country party will take place at the Harris Center of the Arts on Friday, Oct. 18. The One Night Gala begins at 5:30 with cocktail reception and art display at the “Old West Gold Country Hotel,” created just for One Night, next to the Harris Center. “It’s going to be a spectacular party, an evening of mixing with key leaders in the foothill region,” said Bryan Byrd, chairman of the Folsom Lake College Foundation. “Also knowing that your ticket price for that evening goes to support the students in our area, and those who will eventually be living and working here, is fantastic.” Wells Fargo is presenting the event and the Wells Fargo stagecoach will be there. Bite the Bullet, band with nationally renowned fiddler Ronnie Elkan, Shelley Elkan, and Rob and Cecelia Shotwell, will heat up the scene. A sit-down dinner following the reception will echo the Gold Country theme and the evening will culminate in the Broadway musical revue “Ring of Fire,” a journey through the life of Johnny Cash from the cotton fields of Arkansas to the Grand Ole Opry, featuring more than 35 of his most famous hits. “With smashing medleys and bounce in its guitar-driven energy, this show will have you stompin’ your feet and asking for more,” said the Harris Center’s summary of the Broadway musical revue that will play that

night and on Saturday and Sunday. Byrd said that Dave Pier, Executive Director of the Harris Center for the Arts looked for the perfect show for this Foundation gala. “When he came back with this show, ‘Ring of Fire,’ we said, ‘Home run!’” Byrd said. “It’s not only a Broadway show, but the subject matter is so relevant for Folsom.” The center will show the premier of a short video from the foundation before the Ring of Fire performance. It presents a series of vignettes on students impacted in a positive way by the foundation. The One Night benefit will help the foundation

to aid students in multiple ways including scholarships, mini-grants, and an emergency fund for students in need of books or other essentials. “This is where the college joins the community,” said Gloryvette Lichtman, chairman of the One Night committee and member of the foundation. “We became the glue that brought them all together … you interact with your community, and this is the vehicle for doing that. That’s how it really began, the foundation of our organization was the scholarships, special needs, special grants, special projects that couldn’t be covered by regular college financing.”

aybe in one of David Atkinson’s comedic murder mysteries the butler did it. After all, with 50 of them under his belt, what are the chances the much maligned manservant is not responsible for at least one dead body? But in “Murder with a Bullet,” his current production at Lou La Bonte’s in Auburn, there isn’t a butler to be found. Instead, the unusual suspects include, among others, a Jewish country and western singer and a newlywed widow named Vicki Vinyl. “I’m always looking for settings that would be a gathering of people,” said Atkinson, who has been writing and directing murder mystery dinner theater at Lou La Bonte’s for 25 years. “I’ve done a Mafia wedding, a class reunion, spoofs on the Roman Empire, the Gold Rush era, a ’60s spy thriller, ‘Gun-

smoke.’ Gathering events and eras are fun to spoof. This one — a talent search for a record label — lends itself to interaction and that interactive part works better with the audience.” Yes, audience interaction is key when it comes to an Atkinson production. Clues are presented throughout the show to

lead the audience to a solution, along with a few red herrings. “We make them solvable but not easily solvable,” Atkinson said. In between scenes, the actors roam the audience; answering questions to help them solve the murder. When casting, Atkinson said people with improv experience is preferred as they are a lot more comfort-

able with the interactive part. As for the audience, participation is on a volunteer basis. Diners are encouraged to grill the actors on their character’s backgrounds and alibis. For Melyssa Descovich, who plays Bobbi Jo Feldman, the improv aspect is her favorite part. “Nothing’s more fun than when an audience member catches me completely off guard,” she said. “We all have a back story on when and where we were born, but every once in awhile I get asked a question I never dreamed about. ... I have to create a story on the spot.” Atkinson is pleased with the cast. “There is a great chemistry in the cast, a real dynamic chemistry,” Descovich said. “We’ve been working really hard, got some strong back stories going, a lot of fighting, a lot of hatred going on. You’ll get a real fun ride on this one.”

Meet Sushi Chef Megan Risk of Taiko Sushi
When asked what she enjoys most about being a chef, Megan Risk will reply “the opportunity to be creative is one I will always take, especially when it involves something you can eat. Being able to give people a pleasant dining experience and hearing their reaction is what I work for.” Chef Risk can also be very real about her craft and says “there is something very satisfying about breaking down a twenty pound fish.” Being a sushi chef brings out some of the basics for Chef Risk “have grown to appreciate the simplest dishes that put the freshness and quality of the fish on display.” Some of her past favorite dishes include a cracked black pepper and lemon salmon roll with snow crab, cucumber, and avocado. She states “black pepper is very fresh and clean without overpowering your taste buds with that spice sensation.” When asked what most challenges Chef Risk, she will reply “Patience, I am still very young in my sushi career and patience is a virtue I have yet to fully master. There are many meticulous techniques in sushi that need control, which requires a lot of patience. Trying to rush yourself and skip steps can ruin a dish” Chef Risk is familiar with using her creativity, she was originally a Studio Art major, “I feel that my artwork at home and my work behind a sushi bar go hand-in-hand. I also do a lot of baking, which is a major stress relief.” Beyond baking and cooking Chef Risk enjoys getting out in nature whether that is hiking, camping, or spending some time in the garden. Visiting her family and friends is also high on her list of priorities. Come into Taiko Sushi today and check out one of Chef Risk’s simple fresh dishes. Taiko Sushi is located at 2700 E.

Music to my ears
El Pollo de Oro launches mariachi night
he roots of mariachi music rang over California’s hills through violins, guitars, harps and trumpets long before the golden glitter boom of 1849. As music for special occasions, mariachi has continued to honor the cultural collision between European style and the indigenous folk traditions of Mexico. Now, El Pollo de Oro in Granite Bay is elevating its ambiance with the colorful shades of that history.

Every Thursday, from 6-9 p.m., is mariachi night at the restaurant at 8657 Auburn Folsom Road. Now celebrating its third year, El Pollo de Oro is known for its marinated chicken on the bone — an allnight process that leaves the poultry servings rich and

Jim claims this year has been good for grape growers. “Business has been steady,” he said. “We’re getting a lot more people from Sacramento and Roseville who want to go on that one-hour drive. Yes, they live in the cities, but they want to go back to their roots and that’s when they come back to the country.” Big Crush is one of two major events the vintners hold each year. Festivities include food and wine pairings, informative workshops, and live music. “We got good hospitality, good food and we party,” said Allan Kreutzer, owner and winemaker for Drytown Cellars.

He’s a lot of fun.” In addition to their award-winning Zinfandels and Barberas, the tasting room will feature their newest venture: hard cider. Flavors include apple, apple/hibiscus and apple/lemon.

“We’ll be tasting it at the Big Crush,” Kreutzer’s wife Suzanne mentioned. “We’re developing the label and we’ll have it for sale soon in the tasting room, but we thought we would bring it out and taste it.” Drytown Cellars patron Laura Doyle thinks the cider idea is a good idea. “More and more people are becoming allergic to wheat,” she said. “They may not necessarily drink wine, but they need an alternative.” One of the area’s newer wineries - Bella Grace has two locations: the wine caves in Plymouth’s Shenandoah Valley and a tasting room on Main Street in Sutter Creek. “We just love being in Amador County,” said Bella Grace owner/winemaker Michael Havill. “It’s such a wonderful venue for growing grapes and entertaining people

You can travel back in time on the weekend of Oct. 19-20, at Folsom City Lion’s Park when the Folsom Renaissance Faire comes to town for its 21st year. Nearly everything is included in the admission price, other than food which is varied, and items you might want to buy from vendors including many Renaissancerelated items. At least eight different shows appear on four stages, including Fowl Tales with his parrots and dog and the Merry Pranksters performing Moorish and English country dances. Jugglers, stilt walkers and other entertainers perform throughout the area, and court intrigues and cultural ambassadors abound. Comedian-magician-ventriloquist Jack Spareribs will be there with his pirate ship. Comedy group Stark Ravens have their own condensed version of Shakespeare. Though the event was produced before by the City of Folsom, now Marti Miernik and Bill Watters of Renaissance Productions produce it in close association with the city.

She acquired her current costume four years ago. “It’s a couture gown, handmade, hand beaded and hand jeweled and every year we do some-

thing else to it,” Doyle said. “Last year we added a very elaborate ruff.” William Shakespeare, played by Donald Hardy of Alameda, will be presenting some of his work for the queen. “Generally I spend much of the day either at my table, writing, or I am out and about in the faire,” Hardy said. “(Other participants) know who I am and they usually make a big deal about calling me by name and pointing me out and playing jokes on me.” Both Hardy and Miernik agree it’s a lot more fun if you dress up. That way the actors know you want to join in the fun. “It makes you play without a TV and it makes you imagine, which is frankly, something that I don’t think we do a lot of these days,” Miernik said.

Loomis Eggplant Festival offers family fun in small town
BY CHRIS GREENWOOD
FOLSOM LAKE ENTERTAINER

T

housands of people from all over the region will flock to Loomis on Oct. 5 for the 26th Annual Loomis Eggplant Festival to indulge in a day of food, music and family fun. The festival, sponsored by the Loomis Basin Chamber of Commerce, blossomed from a joke made over 26 years ago by local business owners, who used tongue-in-cheek humor to create a now long-standing tradition for the town. The community wanted a fun, family event and since no one could think of another fruit or vegetable that hadn’t already been used, they came up with the eggplant. And so the Eggplant Festival was born. The festival was intended to bring people from outside of the Loomis Basin and to promote local businesses. More

than a quarter-century later, hundreds of volunteers and local businesses contribute everything from time and resources to parking-space to help make the event a success. Volunteers include chamber members and men and women from the sheriff’s and fire department, as well as community members. Jennifer Knisley, chamber manager, said, “It is a totally fun, a great community event, and it’s not just about eggplants.” With a host of activities provided for the young and old, festivities kick off at 9 a.m. with a performance by the Del Oro High School Marching Band. Following the show, kids can spend the day in the fun zone with activities such as an obstacle course and a scuba diving pool or they can accompany the adults to the many cooking demonstrations pro-

vided by volunteers, listen to music from local bands and visit the many food, arts, crafts and beer and wine booths. Cooking demonstrations presented by a celebrity and local chefs will return with wellknown guests from the culinary community. Tyler Stone, a former contestant on television’s Bravo’s Top Chef, as well as a well-established culinary writer, has made several TV and radio appearances on local networks. Stone, who said he loves a savory eggplant parmesan, will be on hand during the festival to demonstrate cooking some of his favorite dishes. Local chef Scott Domeny, Del Oro culinary arts instructor, will also be conducting a cooking demonstration. He said he prefers his eggplant cooked simply, grilled to perfection and with no extra flair about it.

Breakout with Folsom Blues run

The Four Bridges HalfMarathon had been held for 12 years and never drew more than 2,000 runners. With the name changed to the Folsom Blues Half-Marathon and a weekend of activities planned around the race, Mansoor, the race director, is expecting close to 3,000 runners at this year’s race, slated for Oct. 19. “In traveling the country promoting the halfmarathon, the response I received when I mentioned the Four Bridges Half Marathon in Folsom was, ‘Where’s Folsom?’,” Mansoor said. “When I mentioned Johnny Cash and Folsom Prison,

compared to professional organizations in cities like San Francisco and New York. Their goal is to reach out to the community and to reach young people who might not have an opportunity to appreciate classical music firsthand. “In celebration of our 10th season, we are launching our first major fundraiser – a gala event,” said Folsom Symphony board president, Bruce Woodbury. “We want to begin a focus on community engagement and outreach – we really want to build our program for student access.” Anson Wong, violinist and board vice president, is excited about the organization’s direction. “We want to have a greater impact on the

community,” he said. “We especially want to educate kids and get more kids involved in classical music.” Free or subsidized student concert nights, bringing music to classrooms, to Big Brothers Big Sisters and similar organizations, and to foster youth, are just a few of the board’s goals. “We’ve spent the last decade building a solid entity - now we want to build out our community engagement programs,” Woodbury said. “We performed for students from Theodore Judah Elementary in Folsom, and the kids all loved it.” Woodbury said when a group of musicians visits kids’ schools and exposes them to quality music, it really lights up their interest in music. In addition to concert nights and school visits, the organization plans to offer an instrument “petting zoo” where kids can handle instruments. “Kids are the future of music, and they are our future audiences,” Wong said. “And with cuts in school programs, kids aren’t getting the exposure to quality music like they should.” The Gala includes a wine social, dinner and auction, golf is optional.

Whether you are looking for the perfect pumpkin to carve a JackO-Lantern, or just decorating your home, the region has a variety of options for families. In Folsom, a long-time favorite for generations of families has been visiting Zittel Farms. Roger and Gail Zittel bought the farmland in 1976 after moving to Folsom, and today remain one of the last working farms in Folsom. “Our pumpkin patch is unique because we are geared toward young families and young children,” Roger said. “Our ultimate goal with our farm is to teach children about agriculture.” The Zittels give tours to children from local schools and preschools to teach them about agriculture.

continued from 20 Despite a mouth-watering array of eggplant-based dishes, Knisley said the festival isn’t just about eggplants and never really was. The significance it holds within the local community comes from spending a day together as a town and as a region to enjoy the fruits of labor that locals have to offer, some of which just happen to be eggplants.

The Johnny Cash element plays well here, of course, with Folsom Prison Blues.” In that vain, there are a weekend full of activities planned for runners to spend time in Folsom. For one, the Harris Center of the Arts will be hosting the Broadway Musical “Ring of Fire” Oct. 1820. A Johnny Cash cover band will be playing at Toby Keith’s on Friday, Oct. 18. The cover band will also be at the halfmarathon. At the end of the half-marathon, which concludes in the heart of Folsom, a farmer’s market will be held.

“When we started our strategic planning for this year, we wanted to take events we already had and turn them into weekend packages so we could increase the economic impact on the city,” said Mary Ann McAlea, the director of the Folsom Tourism Bureau. “We moved the event from Sunday to Saturday and added elements around it, things Folsom does well, to increase visibility and allow more people to enjoy it. By moving it to Saturday, we have created a weekend full of options as a way to introduce more people to Folsom.” Another major change to the event is the course.

“We really wanted to get rid of that hill and we wanted to start on Folsom Lake Crossing, unofficially known as Johnny Cash Bridge,” Mansoor said. “From the bridge, the course goes down Folsom-Auburn Road and picks up the bike trail by Rainbow Bridge. It goes counter-clockwise around the lake and finishes in downtown Folsom on Gold Lake Drive. Mansoor is expecting 3,000 to compete in this year’s halfmarathon, 1,000 more than the Four Bridges HalfMarathon ever drew. “Runners normally plan their running schedule a year in advance, so next year we expect even more runners,” Mansoor said. “We’d like to get 5,000 runners and after that we’d like to have 10,000 participate in the race.” The cost is $65.
