FAIRFIELD — A walk through the Total Home & Garden Show this weekend presented dozens of options for the homeowner.
From kitchen improvements to patio enhancements, the spring event provided a tempting ground for consumers who happen to have a place to hang their hat.
Vacaville’s Joanie and Mike Reagan plan to refinish their kitchen cabinets and get new countertops, so they spent some time perusing the vendors inside the air-conditioned Specialty Event Center.
“They gave us a lot of ideas,” Joanie Reagan said. “Flooring guys are actually doing countertops now.”
The couple left Sunday with some information on kitchen remodeling as well as bottles of blended olive oil and balsamic vinegar by Seattle-based OMG.
“Oh my God, yes,” Joanie Reagan said of the samples.
Other temptations could be found in the food court where Sacramento-based Drewski’s Hot Rodd Kitchen parked its food truck.
Recognized as one of the top food trucks in the nation by the Food Network, Drewski’s had humble beginnings.
Andrew “Drewski” Blaskovich cashed his meager 401(k) and borrowed some money from his mother to start the business three years ago.
At first, “it was a disaster,” Blaskovich said. Now the business, known for its Hemi (pulled pork with macaroni and cheese) and Mustang (Korean barbecue beef and kimchi) sandwiches, boasts three food trucks that cruise the Sacramento and San Francisco Bay areas, and a restaurant near McClelland Air Force Base.
The Food Network named it one of the top food trucks in the nation, Blaskovich said. And the Sacramento News and Review and KCRA recognized the business as well.
But there was plenty of local buzz at the Home & Garden Show, said Manager Timothi Bohan.
“A lot of people (were) coming back and forth wanting more,” he said.
