Big weekend Santa Cruz


Glowing cat eyes

Vortex

Thats just Nuts! Tasting oil, olives and tea, seeing the Art

It was first Friday again last night, got out of the house on a awesome night in Sanity Cruz. I slanged some wine in Sand city until four, came home and grabbed Steve and hauled him down town, so we were a little late. We hit up the museum, and met up with Rick Duncan

Rick Duncan

That boy aint normal! Duncansong.com

and his friend Nina. Rick had bought a new Uke and is working on bohemian rhapsody. We wandered up stairs on Nina’s recommendation to see the Wood working show. This is awesome!   I was staring mindlessly at some cabinets hanging on the wall,  thinking, I remember seeing this piece at Cabrillo… I look down, its says Patrick Stafford, who is standing right behind me. http://www.cabrillo.edu/~pstafford/PatrickMay312007.html

Duh! the room was full of people, it was warm, I told Patrick good thing he was wearing a kilt, and was he going “commando’? He thought it would be cooler if he was. Rick and Nina took off to Lincoln street to The True Olive Connection and we caught up with them there. What a blast! We agreed the pomegranate balsamic would make a wonderful salad. Then we dropped in on the Nut Kreations next door. Beautiful presentation, make your own trail mix.  We caught up with Rick at happy high herbs on Cathcart. Cindy gave us samples of Damiana tea, Rick blasted the customers with uke tunes while I chatted with some new friends. If you are looking for alternatives to drugs both legal and ill-legal check this place out. It’s decorated in yellow and purple, full of info, thoughts, advice and products. They don’t sell cannabis. We had run out of time so we had to leave. I didnt get to try any wine, but thats Ok, sometimes wine puts a different slant on things, and I’ve tasted most of what was down there last night.  Santa Cruz Mountian wines are wonderful, grab the pinot noir when you see it. If you are into the wine scene and you’d like to blog about it I would welcome contributions! Ok, it’s Saturday morning There’s a new Green tea and honey show for today, it’s about blue berries…as Dr. Shunney says…yummy!  Also, there a funny story about the bachelorette TV show and a mis-sent text from JP Rosenbaum on this weeks talking ish podcast.  2000 downloads yesterday from this website!  Ok…I’m gonna have a snack, clean up and head back down town for the Cabrillo art and wine! See ya there?    ~Brooke
