What’s your favorite season? I recently took an unofficial poll and—with the exception of my spring-loving sister (who apparently isn’t affected by allergies!)—received a resounding response for “autumn!” It didn’t come as a huge surprise, especially living in this area. The kaleidoscope of colors; cool, crisp mornings that call for cozy cardigans; abundance of alfresco activities (don’t miss Big Crush, Auburn Wine, Ale, & Food Festival, or Folsom Family Expo; turn to page 18 for dates and details); and cornucopia of seasonal flavors to savor (apples, pumpkins, and pies, oh my!), makes it easy to fall for fall.

And in this month’s issue, our biggest of the year, we’re celebrating the season—along with all our region’s small businesses (and business owners)—in a big way. If you’re like me and read magazines back to front, then start with “Last Look” on page 82 for an autumn-esque picture snapped locally and our favorite leaf-peeping locales, including East Sacramento—an urban forest that’s currently awash in a canopy of yellow, orange, and crimson-colored trees.
Leaving the leaves behind, turn to page 68 for some easy, autumn-inspired recipes utilizing the cream of the harvest crop, including a butternut squash risotto you’ll be eager to reheat…and have on repeat.

In honor of the most hallowed holiday—the one where consuming colossal amounts of candy and donning creepy costumes is A-OK—we asked area distilleries for their “boo”ziest, most spirited cocktails. Pick your poison (I think I’ll start with the Midori-spiked, freaky-looking “Frankenstein”) on page 72. We also share some fun, festive Halloween happenings in The 10 Spot (page 16) that are sure to (pumpkin) spice up the season.

Around here, it wouldn’t be October without our annual “Best of” feature, where we announce the winners of this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards. It’s a personal favorite because I always discover new (literally) winning places around town to support—like Pasty Pies of the World and Exhilaration Station—and am reminded of all the talented, innovative entrepreneurs our region is teeming with. Find out if your favorite people and places made the list starting on page 51.

There’s much more in store, too, including an inspiring, informative piece about local women beating breast cancer (page 22); a spotlight on some of the area’s best bands (page 31); and tips on making sure your #WFH office is a productive, authentic place of productivity, whether you prefer to work indoors or (like me!) out (page 52). 

I hope you’ll agree that these glossy print pages are as plentiful and uplifting as the autumn season itself. Enjoy!
