About

Hank Vander Veen
This is the third annual Best of 209 issue, and each year the program has grown — in votes and community support. We hope that you enjoyed nominating and voting for your favorite places to eat, shop, be entertained and stay healthy. Congratulations to all of the nominees and especially this year’s Best of 209 winners! Please support these local businesses throughout the region.

In this issue, you will also find a number of ideas to enjoy the last of summer.

Festivals like Dell’Osso Family Farms’ 2nd annual Baconfest and the Livingston Sweet Potato Festival offer a delicious twist to family fun, and veteran comedians Louie Anderson and Kevin Nealon will bring their star power to the Gallo Center for the Arts.

Those looking for relief from Valley heat can get information on visiting Bodega Bay, a coastal community made famous by Alfred Hitchcock and “The Birds,” or the Walt Disney Family Museum, located in the Presidio of San Francisco.

Be sure to check out two top-notch cocktails from Galletto Ristorante in Modesto in our Hey Bartender feature and two Perfect Pairings from Bistro 234 chef Leroy Walker and wine director Jayton Gates.

August through October is also grape harvest season, and in this issue five of the largest wineries in the 209 give their insight into the growing success of Central Valley wine.
Mentioned above are just a few of the features that you find this issue of 209 Magazine. After reading the magazine, I encourage you to stay engaged by checking out 209magazine.com and following us on Facebook and Instagram.

As always, we at 209 Magazine continue to strive to be the most relevant magazine in your home, a place called 209.
