We caught up with some of the past recipients of the Lincoln Center scholarship to see where they are now. One answer from Mariel Montes caught our attention. She said, “Receiving the Lincoln Center Scholarship was the best way to begin my undergraduate career. It has helped me cover the financial aspects of college, making it possible for me to focus on the wonderful things UCLA has to offer. In addition, attending the award lunch introduced me to multiple students who I still keep in contact with today. As a result, it contributed to my network of talented students from Stockton who strive to make our city and world a better place!” Read on to hear more about the impact that other recipients

I’m currently in the last quarter of my sophomore year, and I’m just starting to get into my harder engineering courses. Even though they are a lot of work and take up most of my time, I find them all incredibly interesting and I feel I’ve learned a lot even in my short time here. I’m hoping to graduate in four years and return to Northern California to work on developing advanced renewable energy systems that can be implemented to reduce our negative impact on the environment.

Take a vacation south of the border without ever leaving Stockton! A visit to the newly remodeled Tio Pepé’s restaurant and bar will allow you to enjoy the zesty flavors of Mexico, while experiencing the warm hospitality and friendly service of this long-standing family business. Tio Pepé’s “The Original” was established by Eliseo Flores in 1977 at the corner of Hammer Lane and Lower Sacramento Road. The restaurant moved to Lincoln Center in June of 2014. Today, Eliseo’s son Mario and his wife, Sheri Riley invite patrons to relax and enjoy a break from the stress of daily life, and dig into delicious food and creative cocktails.

Fresh describes everything about this establishment. Chef Mario prepares everything in the restaurant from scratch seven days a week. He is passionate about the cuisine and combines treasured, traditional recipes learned from his father with his own contemporary flavors – incorporating more seafood and verde sauce. Salsa and chips are made by hand every day and twice on weekends. The staff works hard to ensure that guests feel welcomed and appreciated.
Recently Tio Pepé’s underwent an exciting renovation adding a full service bar and an outdoor eating area. They welcomed the addition of Matt Wolfe as the bar manager. Matt brings with him 14 years of experience in an upscale Southwestern restaurant at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, and a wealth of knowledge about tequila. He also has a vast array of his own innovative cocktails and continues the fresh approach to flavor by crafting his own pureés and mixes from scratch. He is enthusiastic about bringing new flavors to Stockton.

Matt describes the aromatic characteristics of tequila in terms usually associated with fine wines. After visiting many tequila distilleries in Mexico, he is anxious to share his knowledge with all who want to experience something new. The bar has a wonderful assortment of tequila tempting tasters to “step out of the box.” The owners are planning tequila pairing dinners in the future, as well as tequila flights.

The inviting new redwood bar and pub tables spilling out on the Center’s sidewalk let guests take advantage of our fabulous weather, and new tapas-style menu of bar bites that will soon be launched. So drop into Tio Pepé’s and savor a mini-vacation soon, we’re sure you’ll be back for more!

There you are — standing in front of all the eyebrow supplies at (insert favorite beauty store here) expected to decide on what’s going to look best, look the most natural, or give you that bold brow look you’ve been trying to achieve. If you’re anything like me, you’ve tried it all: the pencil, the tray of wax + powder, tinting, e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. But you still haven’t found the perfect recipe for your perfect brow. Well, ladies (and gentlemen!), we sat down with Kym, of Kym with a Y, and Chelsea Ramsey at The B Hive and have all the microblading answers.

Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that uses a specialized hand controlled tool to make fine cuts in the skin to implant pigment that resembles the appearance of natural eyebrow hair. “It is ideal for filling in sparse areas of the brow where hair isn’t present, and defining and enhancing your natural brow shape,” says Kym. This trend has become more and more popular over the last couple years.

Unlike permanent makeup tattooing, Microblading does not use a machine operated tool. Instead, a small device with multiple microneedles is used. After numbing the area before and during your procedure, the microblade is dipped into a selected color of iron-oxide pigment — an ingredient safe for skin — and then implanted under your skin to mimic the natural hairs in your brows. See photo above. Sign me up ASAP!

Okay, so two things you’re probably thinking:

  1. How much does it cost and,
  2. How long does this last?

First, each salon will vary in price, so you’ll have to inquire, make your consultation and find out. Second, this procedure can last up to 3 years! While it won’t wash off, it will fade over time and touch-ups are required. “Since each skin type is unique, the pigments will hold differently and break down at different rates,” says Chelsea.

If you’re considering microblading, or just tired of trying to find your perfect brow recipe at the makeup store, call one of these lovely ladies here at Lincoln Center. We promise you’ll be in good hands.

Diane Phillips of D.A.D’S HOT DOGS

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love a great hotdog – and we all know that the ‘go-to’ hot dog shop in Stockton is D.A.D.’s Dogs!  It was nice to sit down with Diane and chat about her popular hot dog shop – discussing her passion, her life and a variety of other tid-bits.  Enjoy.

What is one thing you are most proud of?

I am extremely proud of being in business for 38 years. I love working with Denise and Danielle!

What do you like to do on your days off?

On my days off I enjoy working in my yard and playing cards.

What do you like to do for fun?

In addition to owning D.A.D.’s Dogs, I am also a farmer of almonds and walnuts. I love being outside and working in the fields.

What is your favorite food?

Hot dogs of course – but also tacos!

What is your favorite thing about working at D.A.D.’s?

My customers – I love meeting and talking to customers new and old alike.

How would you order your hotdog?

My go to hot dog is a chili cheese dog with onions.

What does D.A.D.’s Dogs stand for?

Diane and Dogs

Tell us more about the pictures on the walls of the restaurant.

That was Denise’s idea and it was a good one. They are my customers that go back for years. Some are gone now but I wish we would have done this when I first opened in 1979.

Tell us about one regular customer who stands out.

Victor Espinoza has been here since day one. A lot of my customers recognize him from years ago when he played his guitar on the corner of Pershing. Everyone knows his name, he goes by Victor Elvis. He is a sweetheart and he comes in almost every day. We look forward to seeing him. He puts a smile on our faces.    n

Ribeye, Filet Mignon, Prime Rib. These are just a few of the incredible dishes you’re going to find at Prime Table here in Lincoln Center. Owned and operated by the owners of Market Tavern, the newest addition to the Center has been quite the success so far.

Since its opening in December 2016, Prime Table has been living up to its name by serving high-quality, American beef. “The quality of meat is high, and the way it’s prepared, along with the equipment we bought to prepare it, complements the beef,” said Nick DiArenzo, co-owner of Prime Table.

Alongside the beef, they’re also serving up some of the best sides in town, like Triple Cooked Fries, a Wild Shrimp Cocktail, French Onion Soup, or take a healthier route with Brussels & Cauliflower. Prime Table is also offering seafood and vegetarian options.

Since both Market Tavern and Prime Table try to use as many fresh, locally grown ingredients as possible, there will be seasonal vegetables on the menu, including favorite springtime asparagus. And you can even find local ingredients in
the cocktail list, with choices like Linden Cherry or Black Walnut Manhattans. There is also a carefully cultivated wine list, which includes many local wines, but also some old-world varietals to choose from.

The interior décor of the restaurant was planned just as carefully as the menu. Comprised of the main dining area with the bar, and a banquet room, Prime Table even has its televisions set to black and white to add to the ambiance. As you first walk in the door you are greeted with vintage classics like Audrey Hepburn artwork, a Frank Sinatra headshot and music that makes you feel as if you’re in a different era. “The vibe of the place complements the food and makes for a unique dining experience,” promises Nick.

As for what compelled the owners to go forward with planning another restaurant when they already have a successful one? Passion. Their love for the restaurant business and sup-plying Stockton with the most high-quality food at fair prices.

With an ever-growing interest in local restaurants serving high-quality food and thankfulness for the support of both restaurants, they’re not looking to slow down yet: Nick says, “Look for more things to come.

Homestead Favorites

One of the pioneer families of Linden had established a diverse and successful farm raising row crops and livestock. Then in 1960, Karl Grupe ventured out to plant cherries on the Homestead Ranch. Since then, the next generations have continued to provide some of the finest cherries in the area. Bing cherries are harvested and shipped around the world to fresh markets. The same delicious fruit produced and sun-rippened on the trees are also picked to create Homestead Favorites Cherry Jellies by Charlyn Grupe Hulsman. The juice is extracted the same day to preserve its fruitfulness and retain its delicious flavor. Making these jellies for their family and friends was a tradition for Charlyn and her mother Fran. She now shares her scrumptious jellies through stores and wineries in the region. Podesto’s Market carries a nice selection of the Homestead Favorites Cherry Jelly, Cherry Pepper Jelly and Cherry Chutney.

Susies Custom

A Blazing Success –From Pencils to Fire Logs

Gazing at the historic Klamath Ferry docked on the deep-water channel in Stockton, you will find Duraflame, the internationally popular manufacturer of fire logs. More than 50 years ago Stockton based California Cedar Products was looking for ways to recycle the sawdust from its pencil operations. Blending sawdust with petroleum wax, the mixture metamorphosed into the first Duraflame fire log. As this new company grew they expanded to developing fire starters, matches and lighters, grilling products, fireplaces and heaters. Locally owned and independently operated by the Berolzheimer family, they have more than 250 employees and two manufacturing facilities. Duraflame continues to be a leader in its industry and is a blazing success!
