A Taste of Stockton, California

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT STOCKTON?

  1. Stockton is the county seat of San Joaquin County, is currently the 13th largest city in the U.S. state of California. According to the U.S. Census Bureau the population was 290,141.

  2. Although historically an agriculturally based community, Stockton's economy has since diversified into many other areas. These include telecommunications and manufacturing among others. Because of the new focus on renewable energy, the proximity to agriculture will become even more important in the future as research and development combine agriculture with alternative fuels.

  3. Stockton was disproportionately affected by the collapse of the sub-prime lending market in 2007, and led the United States in foreclosures for that year, with one out of every thirty homes posted for foreclosure. From September 2006 to September 2007, the value of a median-priced house in Stockton declined by 44%. Stockton's Weston Ranch neighborhood, a subdivision of modest tract homes built in the mid 1990s, had the worst foreclosure rate in the area according to ACORN, a national advocacy group for low and moderate-income families. Real estate in Stockton more than tripled in value between 1998 and 2005, but when the bubble burst in 2007, the ensuing financial crisis made Stockton one of the hardest-hit cities in America. Stockton was rated by Forbes in 2009 as America's fifth most dangerous city because of its crime rate. In 2010, mainly due to the aforementioned factors, Forbes named it one of the top three worst places to live.

  4. The annual Apollo Night talent show draws about 1,500 people to the Stockton Civic Auditorium to watch performances by aspiring Northern California musicians. The Bob Hope Theatre, formerly known as the Fox California Theatre in downtown Stockton, is one of several movie palaces in the Central Valley. Bob Hope often came to Stockton to visit close friend and billionaire tycoon Alex Spanos, who donated much of the money to revitalize the theater after Hope's death.

  5. In 2005, the Downtown Stockton Alliance began sponsoring a monthly art walk during the summer. The event features local artists exhibiting their work at downtown businesses and galleries as well as in some otherwise vacant storefronts. Musicians also perform throughout downtown as part of the event.

  6. Stockton-based producers Hallway Productionz have created beats for well-known musicians, including Blackalicious, Ice Cube and WC.

  7. Festivals Juneteenth Day Celebration (June), Stockton Asparagus Festival (April), Black Family Day (September)

  8. Stockton has hot, dry summers and cool but mild, wet winters. In an average year, about 80% of the 13.8 inches of precipitation falls from October through April. Located in the Central Valley, the temperatures range is much greater than in the nearby Bay Area. Tule fog blankets the area during some winter days.

Review
I had the Shrimp/Crab and Grits, Gumbo Pot Pie and Sriracha Chicken and Waffles Skewers. The chicken was crispy and fried to satisfaction. The Shrimp and Grits topped with Dungness Crab was music to my mouth! And the pot pie was so flakey and moist. Nicole Tobias-Cooks made a bomb a@@ Itailan Strawberry Soda for me, 2 Cannolis, and my favorite pastry, of which I have no idea what it is called but its buttery, flakey and delightful!! The fruit was fresh and high quailty. The pastry was destroyed in less then 30 seconds. What a brunch!!! Thanks a million! I am beyond satisfied!
