“The Palms is a story of second chances,” writes the San Francisco Chronicle. “You can say the same thing about the whole town of Winters.”

Fridae, who celebrated the grand re-opening of the The Palms’ earlier this year, describes Winters as “a perfect microcosm of what a small California town should be like.”
