Chat with Carlos Over a Tropical Burrito at Don Julio’s Latin Grill and Pupusas

July 22, 2015 4:46 pm

Some Rohnert Park customers come to Don Julio's Latin Grill and Pupusas as much for the company as the cuisine. Carlos, the son of the husband-wife duo who owns the relatively new restaurant, typically mans the dining room. Locals say he exudes a warmth that immediately sets you at ease, and he's always happy to help you pick a dish or explain something on the menu. Meanwhile, his mother works in the back to craft the fresh fare that customers so dearly love.

Unsurprisingly, that popular cuisine includes the pupusas. They're almost akin to tacos, built on a foundation of fresh corn tortillas, but the red salsa and traditional slaw (known as Curtido) set them apart. Order yours stuffed with pork, chicken, or beans, or opt for the more exotic pupusa filled with a veggie from El Salvador. Patrons also praise the tropical burritos, which take traditional Mexican burritos (also on the menu) and add some flair.

Sonoma Canopy Tours: Cruise Through the Treetops of Californian Redwoods

July 8, 2015 3:21 pm

The zipline may have originally been invented for scientists who wanted to venture deeper into the jungle than had been possible previously, but that's not how Sonoma County Tours sees it today. The tour company near Rohnert Park converts the once strictly scientific mode of transportation into recreation for its guests.

That's not to say you won't learn something on a treetop tour. After all, you'll be zooming through the flourishing leaves of California's majestic redwood trees, which are an integral part of both the history and habitat of the state. Go for the Redwood Walk (starting at the Welcome Center) before your zipline tour to delve even deeper into the trees' importance. Then go get harnessed in for your journey, which includes 10 zips at varying speeds (the fastest at 25 miles per hour). Even guests with a fear of heights have come to enjoy the treetop tour by the time they reach the final platform.
