Dynamic dads, sweet summertime and backyard barbecues… we celebrate them all this month.
If your Father’s Day celebration leads west to the coast, stop by Fire & Light glassware and pay John and Natali McClurg a visit. xHumboldt County and beyond, and their eco-friendly shop is a kaleidoscope of color.
We’ll introduce you to Dr. Carl Vincent, a fascinating character who has been inducted into knighthood for his bravery and works alongside his daughter, Tanya, at The Antique Dragon in Redding. And then there’s champion bullfighter Joe Baumgartner of Red Bluff, who has earned himself a spot in the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame for his remarkable work. We’ll tell you more about him.
Meanwhile, treat Dad to a spicy grilled steak that will let him know just how much you appreciate him. We’ve got the perfect recipe in this issue. Feeling like some exercise after your feast? The North State has a scenic bicycle trail that’s just your speed, whether you’re an avid cyclist or a casual meanderer. Grab a bike map and explore to your heart’s content.
Still stumped for a Father’s Day gift idea? The friendly folks at Enjoy the Store (now in Redding and Red Bluff) will fill one of our signature gift crates with unique, made-in-the-North-State treats that are sure to impress.
Be sure to mark your calendar now for the fourth annual Enjoy Movies in the Park series, which begins on June 7.
