I want you to stop and think about what you are reading. The magazine you have been flipping through for years or only minutes, has done so much for our community. ModestoView is an entity with a heartbeat and an open mindset. The people of Modesto have all combined their interests and insights into a platform that far surpasses Yelp. It’s a truly remarkable thing that we should not only celebrate, but also spread throughout our great city. Make sure all of your friends and family are receiving copies of each month’s mag! You have all of Modesto’s entertainment enthusiasts right at your fingertips!!

I am so overjoyed to have been apart of this wonderful circle of optimistic, visionary people for five years!! I am setting upon my senior year, and my goal for this school year is to enjoy my wonderful city and all of it’s people while I am here. There are so many great places in our diverse terrain to enjoy. In one day, I can see a theatre show, visit a college campus, have a great milkshake, bike next to a river, see a live band and tour an art gallery…without leaving my city. That is something all Modesto area people get to say!! The places I have been going lately are Cornell’s Records for music, Scenic Drive-In for milkshakes, Chartreuse Muse for art, Tokyo Express for great food and Escape Modesto for entertainment!!

Along with these places, I spent all summer going to local music and art shows with my friends. It’s an incredible way to make new friends and hang out with a cool group of young people. Cornell’s Records have had some really fun (FREE) events this summer, so be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay updated. Deva Cafe tends to always have great bands coming through and new venue Moon & Sixpence has a wide array of genres! Hope to see you there! Support local art!
