Summer’s promise is upon us, with sunshine-soaked days and warm, starry nights. Floating on the lake, sinking your teeth into a tender slice of watermelon, squeezing your own fresh lemonade - some say this is the sweetest time of the year.
In honor of Father’s Day, pull Dad away from the barbecue and the lawn tools for a day of celebration. Treat him to a delightful cup of coffee at Tazzaria, or perhaps a gourmet-but-casual meal at Café Tommy. Gift him with some ale from Kaweah Brewing, which is brewed with great care right here in the Valley. If he enjoys golfing, check out the delightful Ridge Creek Golf Course in Dinuba, which plays like a championship course. And check out “In the June Spotlight” for activities ranging from car shows to dance parties to jazz nights – you’re sure to find something to please that special guy in your life.
We’ll also tell you about a woman who was inspired by her father to turn her love for jerky into a long-standing business, Plano Jerky. It’s a story of proud heritage and perseverance.
The final school bell is poised to ring soon, but when the inevitable refrains of “I’m bored” echo through your home, don’t panic – our calendar of events includes an array of kid-friendly activities to keep your youngsters occupied.
Don’t forget to stop by Enjoy the Store in Visalia and pick up a gift crate filled with treats individually selected for the delightful dad or the new graduate in your life. We’ll even wrap it for you!
Happy Father’s Day, and enjoy!
