Pet of the Week @ Haven Humane Society
Haven Humane Society supports the community by promoting the humane treatment of animals through sheltering, spay/neuter, adoption, community education, outreach, rescue and animal regulations. Haven Humane Society’s vision is of a community of responsible pet owners working together for a North State with no more homeless pets. By 2021, Haven Humane Society plans to be a no-kill shelter.
Haven Humane Society has proudly served the North State since 1952. We place animals in new forever homes, return pets to their lost owners, rescue and care for animal cruelty victims, and spay or neuter thousands of animals to help decrease the homeless pet population. Our staff and volunteers run these programs, as well as educational outreach events and fundraisers. Furthermore, Haven Humane’s Spay/Neuter Clinic not only provides spay, neuter, and medical services for animals at the shelter, but also provides full medical care for all documented 501(c)(3) groups, shelters, and low income clients who qualify.
The best Lounge in Redding by far. Here at Fusion Lounge, we do American food with a Southeast Asian Twist! Whether it’s a Thai, Mien, Laos, Vietnamese, Japanese or Korean twist, there will be a little influence from one of these cultures. Our food is very flavorful, unique and a blend of east meets west. We have weekly specials usually beginning on Wednesday or Thursday, and we will only have the item will supplies last! If you’re in the mood for something different, please feel free to come try us out! All our sauces, broths and ingredients are made daily fresh and original! We also have Southeast Asian infused drinks as well! You won’t be able to find food like this with 150 miles from here!! Hope to see you soon!
Fusion Lounge Bar & Grill opened in Jr’s place. The premise is a new one for Redding: fusing elements of Asian cuisines (Lao, Thai, Vietnamese, etc.) with American and Mexican dishes to create such hybrids as the Pho-rito, Pho-nudo, and the Senganator Burger, while also functioning as a neighborhood bar.
Despite their new sign, it’s easy to miss east on Hartnell, lost in a sea of metal auto repair and machine shop prefab buildings. The parking lot is one of those long narrow ones that pass by a long row of metal doors behind Fusion, makes a U-turn, and sneaks back out to Hartnell.
Fusion’s black and blood-red concrete block walls, easy-clean tables and floors, and a goth restroom took a note from the punk club playbook circa 1976, but the clientele was a mixture of locals, auto shop employees, hipsters, and families. (Note: family-friendly until 9:00 PM.) There’s a pool table near the back and a smoker’s patio out the side door. Sit at the bar or one of the tables and wait staff will take your order. Service was friendly and relatively fast; servers are knowledgeable about the food. Specials are on a backlit writing board at the end of the bar.
Baller Bowl, $10.99
The concoction was a refreshing mixture of a taco salad with crunchy mixed cabbage salad, deep-fried shrimp, and tataki of tuna, Sriracha and wasabi drizzle, and a soy dressing on the side. The tataki (seared ahi with sesame crust, thinly sliced) was so very much like fine filet mignon that only its tendency to melt delicately on the tongue belied its origins. Alongside were crunchy fried shrimp that made a nice contrast to the pleasant and light tuna. The soy dressing, however, proved to be very salty, and toward the bottom of the cabbage salad, M. de Joie regretted pouring the dressing over. Sriracha and wasabi were fun to smear the shrimp in, but mixed on the plate they tended to look septic.
Fusion fries, $7.50
Jason ordered Fusion Shrimp but what came to our table was Fusion Fries, as she discovered when he couldn’t find anything but chicken in the toppings. A variation on nachos or potato skins: Jo-Jos – seasoned crunchy potato wedges – were topped with melted cheese, shredded chicken, cilantro, diced tomatoes, Jalapenos, and Fusion sauce. Fusion sauce is a somewhat spicy, smoky red sauce with hints of Thai curry – think of it as an exotic fry sauce. It was quite good when first delivered, but after fifteen minutes or so, the potatoes got pretty soggy. This was plenty to share among two or three people.
Calamari is a popular appetizer in restaurants, but it is almost always straight out of a frozen box, already breaded and ready to deep-fry and serve up with “our garlic aioli.” Fusion’s salt-baked calamari was delightful: thick bite-sized morsels with a dusting of tart tamarind and garnished with fried green onions and Jalapeno slices; this was addictive and original.
Kaliang Fin, $3.00
M. de Joie had never heard of Kaliang Fin and cannot find any reference to it elsewhere, so it may be an original specialty. Korean flour made from mung beans is cooked with water, cooled to produce a gelatin-like block, then cut into small pieces and served in a cold and slightly sour broth. The gelatin cubes had the texture and taste of hard-boiled egg white, slightly sulphuric and bouncy. The broth didn’t have much personality other than tartness and seemed to be mostly a vehicle to support the mung bean jelly. On the side was a small amount of house-made fermented bean & chili paste to mix into the soup – the paste was spicy-hot and delicious, though didn’t think it helped the soup much. KF (as it’s called on the menu) did have a refreshing quality that might be appealing if one had overindulged in too much delicious food and drink.
Fusion Burger, $9.99 with garlic fries ($1.00 extra) and pepper jack cheese
This towering burger, piled high with lettuce, tomato, onion, bacon, roasted eggplant, Fusion sauce, and a fried egg, was in no way reminiscent of a franchise burger. Goopy and drippy, the thick burger fell apart as the egg yolk, and Fusion sauce disintegrated the bun and was overall luscious, juicy, and a wildly delicious messy mixture of tastes. Garlic fries on the side were on the greasy and slightly limp side, but Femme de Joie loved the plentiful garlic bits.
In an unlikely location far from the main hubs of Redding, Fusion is trying out new and exciting ideas, and for the most part, they work. The menu is wisely kept small and manageable, with weekly specials thrown in. Prices are more than fair for the amount and quality of food. Though there were a few missteps, overall Femme de Joie loved the intent and direction of the kitchen. If you’re looking for something new to try, drive out to Fusion and sample their innovative dishes.
Fusion Lounge Bar & Grill, 2704 Hartnell Avenue, Redding, CA 96002. 530-768-1360. Open Monday through Thursday, 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM, Friday 11:00 AM – midnight, Saturday 3:00 PM to midnight.

Not sure what kind of scrubs are running this place…?;-P But whoever it has this place on point!!! The BEST bar food in Redding’s hands down! Their fish tacos are out of control! Not to mention some of the best services you will find! Do yourselves a favor and try this place out ASAP!
We ordered ahi lettuce wraps, Calamari, and fusion Nachos. Everything was excellent especially the calamari. The beer selection was good if you’re an IPA fan I am not, but the food made up for it. Sorry I didn’t try this place sooner and can’t wait to go back and try other items.

The place sets off of the east part of Redding just down the street from the hen house. Looking for something different than your standard cafe/pub food this is the right place. A blend of Asian and Western food dishes. Fries are tasty; the fusion burger is a must try. Haven’t tried the Pho yet, heard it was good from friends.

Excellent food, uniquely prepared and served in a dive bar atmosphere and the prices are great!

DogTrekker.com officially opened 10/2010
Why did you start this business?
“DogTrekker.com was launched as a collaborative effort by a team of dog lovers who wanted to share what they’ve learned during over 200 combined years of on-the-road and on-the-trails adventures. They were frustrated by the lack of local and accurate listings and engaging stories about where to go, stay, eat, hike, splash and have lots of safe and fun tail-wagging’ fun with their pups!”
What makes your business different than other Dog Businesses? Do you have a USP Unique Selling Proposition?
“We are different because we focus on the state of California to stay accurate. Dog-friendly books are outdated the day they are published, and those national and international dog-friendly websites have trouble staying current, local and fresh by trying to cover too much territory. All 8,000 California listings on DogTrekker.com are updated each year.”
Business owner Dave Kendrick Replied.
Where did you learn the business? Meaning,
Who taught you the business, school(s), or an individual?

A personal story from the heart of Robert Fetty “Project Manager Best of the North State”. Robert meet Tammy Lynn and Marcelleus, owners of “Tammy Got Stuff?” Thrift Store over 2 years ago, meeting with them on how I could help their business. They were great to talk too and I knew from the beginning we were going to be more than business associates. I have always been a big fan of Thrift Stores and always wanted them to be successful. I mean who doesn’t like finding a treasure. Tammy and Marcelleus are heard about all over Redding. Being in social media marketing you run into each other on Facebook, Yelp & Google. I soon found out that they are involved with Redding more than most mom and pop Thrift Store. They believe in helping our community. I wish more people came forward and tell their story of how they help our community. When Tammy told me they were moving down to San Bernardino, California, my first thought was, who will fill their shoes in our town of Redding?
So many people came forward and said how Tammy and Marcelleus changed their life. I know working with “Tammys Got Stuff?” Thrift Store my life has changed. The love and compassion that those two had made my day. Not only did they help out many organizations but they helped out real people with real problems. So many times I would be visiting Tammy and Marcelleus and someone would come in trying to help another person out. They would not only help them but sometimes just give them what they needed to help that person. Does not matter if they homeless, senior, or even a sad person needing someone to talk to, they were there. Their final hurrah they donated everything to #Lungs4Lindsey to raise money for Linsey Arzate double lung transplant. Tammy and Marcelleus you will truly be missed. Truly one of the Best of the North States favorite Thrift Store.#notforgotten
Good prices, friendly staff, good location.

Transplant Type: Lung
Follow for events
Benefits Concert for Lindsey coming soon
August 5th 2017
Dear Friends,What if you were living on borrowed time?
Lindsey Arzate is fighting for her life. In 2012, after giving birth to her daughter, Lindsey was diagnosed with systemic scleroderma which is an autoimmune disease that affects the internal organs. During a subsequent hospitalization in March 2016, she found out she had heart failure and pulmonary arterial hypertension. Nine months later, Lindsey was hospitalized with advanced severe pulmonary hypertension and is on oxygen and IV medications 24/7. Now doctors say a double lung transplant is critical.
This has been an extremely challenging time for Lindsey and her husband, Manuel, who are parents of two young children. Lindsey’s illness has had a major impact on her family emotionally, mentally and financially. She describes her situation as a huge roller coaster ride, but remains hopeful for a second chance at life. Before her health began to decline, Lindsey loved hiking, swimming, and traveling, but these days her activities are extremely limited. She is still able to enjoy cooking, crafting, movies, shopping and just being with friends and family. Lindsey looks forward to one day being able to breathe on her own and being free from the IV, so she can do all the things a young wife and mother dreams of doing with her family.
Unfortunately, Lindsey’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price.
The average double lung transplant costs over $1 million. And, that’s only the beginning. Even with insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, she still faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of her life, she will need follow-up care and anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they’re as critical to her survival as the transplant itself.
When she receives her transplant, Lindsey and Manuel must temporarily relocate over 200 miles from their home to be near the hospital for a least six weeks during the recovery process, incurring substantial expenses for travel, food and lodging. Because of her declining health, she had to leave a job she loved as a supervisor of a day program for intellectually disabled adults adding to the financial strain.
What if your life depended on the compassion and generosity of others?
The National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) is working with volunteers and supporters to help relieve the growing burden of expenses for Lindsey. NFT has been assisting transplant patients with fundraising support for more than 30 years. Your gift—of $25, $50, $100 or more—will enable NFT to provide Lindsey with the financial support she desperately needs.
You can help by visiting http://give.transplants.org/goto/lindseyarzate to make a tax-deductible donation to NFT to help with her expenses.
If you have any questions about NFT, feel free to contact the staff at 800-489-3863.

What is The History of Mongolian BBQ?
In the Thirteenth Century, the great warrior Genghis Khan and his soldiers from the grassed plateau of Mongolia conquered many countries from China to Hungary. They established one of the greatest empires the World had ever known. Legend has it that after a long day of hunting, Genghis
Khan and his Mongolian warriors would make camp and prepare lavish feasts. Using their swords, the warriors would prepare slivers of meats, combined with whatever vegetables and spices on hand. They would grill them on their upturned shields over a blazing fire. This type of cooking has become known the world over as Mongolian BBQ. With this tradition in mind, Kahunas Mongolian BBQ brings you the ULTIMATE MONGOLIAN BBQ!
Redding was missing a Mongolian BBQ at the time, and the Oller Family wanted to open one with an American Style. On April 06, 2014 Kahunas had their Grand Opening! Friendly Service, Relaxing Atmosphere and with a vast variety of homemade sauces and fresh vegetables, noodles, and rice.
Kahunas always promotes education and healthy eating and proud to offer all College Students that bring their ASB card in at dinner time a $2.00 off discount on their entree.

Springtime in Beautiful Redding California, I can just imagine all the hustle and buzz about weddings getting planned, and School Proms and Graduations Coming up soon! I asked around about some Local places if I were to Need tuxedos and/or formal wear? Tuxedo Den on Hartnell Ave. Seems to be the place to go! Not only is the store Easy to find but the friendly and helpful staff made it a pleasant and welcoming visit. In meeting with the Shop owner Mr.Austin Benbrook, He stated that the Business was family started and owned,
“My grandparents started Tuxedo Den in 1962, and I am trying to keep it alive.”
“What makes your business different,” I asked,
“We focus on the tuxedo and suit rentals with retail sales also available. We want people to feel comfortable with their experience, and I find that if we treat our customers the way we would want to be treated, then we’re more likely to make new friends in the process! We make it our responsibility to make the entire process from beginning to end as easy and Comfortable as possible for every customer we have the honor of being a part in their special Events.

Tuxedo Den Originally Opened in Eureka California by Emil and Bernice Benbrook, Austin’s grandparents. Over the course of the first 30 years, the family made it their goal to provide expert service in the formal wear business with a smile. In that period they also managed to expand to over 15 different locations in Northern California. They have downsized their market base to the original two locations, Eureka and Redding. Austin stated the reason his Family decided to downsize, “Was to be in our hometowns and to give our friends and neighbors the attention and detail they deserve!” “We here at Tuxedo Den make our customer’s overall experience for their wedding, prom or any of their formal wear needs Convenient and Relaxing, all while aiming to make life-long friends in the process.”
