Q: What is your favorite place to eat?

A: There’s a bunch of ’em. Taste of Thai, Ming Sing on Lodi Avenue, and Matsuyama Sushi. There’s a good variety, it extenuates different parts of your taste buds. Denis’ Country Kitchen has great omelets.

Q: What’s one thing not to miss on a tour of Lodi?

A: Micke Grove Park and Lodi Lake. Calm, peaceful and shady. Bring the kids for a picnic or head to the zoo.

Q: Favorite outing in or around Lodi?

A: I like to go to San Francisco; it’s close by. Stop by Chinatown or the Palace of Fine Arts. There are a jillion things happening all the time. There’s something for everyone.

Q: What is one secret most outsiders don’t know about Lodi?

A: It’s a great family town. Couples have children; they take them out to a lot of parks where they can play. You can just let them go and have fun, meet other kids.

Q: Favorite place to browse or shop?

A: To tell you the truth, I don’t shop too much. But we’ve got a few good used bookstores. There’s Tom’s Used Books, and the Book Rack on Lockeford Street. And there’s Lodi Cooks, with all those cooking things. That’s a good place to go.
