On August 16 and 17th, the newly redesigned Burlingame Avenue will play host to the totally revamped free summer festival, "Burlingame on the Avenue." Formerly billed as the Burlingame ArtzFest, Burlingame on the Avenue takes place August 16-17 and will feature hundreds of artisans showcasing original works of art, photography, sculptures, jewelry, clothing, decor and more. Attendees can stroll rows of booths, speak directly to the artists and enjoy an array of delicious foods and drinks. According to Georgette Naylor, President of the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce, the chamber wanted to get back to the roots of what initially inspired the event: a celebration of community. "The Burlingame Avenue Streetscape Project has been a huge accomplishment for us and for our community," said Naylor. "With the re-branding of this event, we know this will solidify Burlingame Avenue's place as THE premiere shopping destination on the Peninsula." The event will feature many of the favorite components from years past, including an area featuring interactive children's activities, a Home, Garden and Green section, and an eclectic mix of entertainment and live music from bands, including Group Therapy. On Saturday from 11am-2pm, local community performers, including winners of the Burlingame Idol competition, will showcase their talents. Burlingame on the Avenue hosted by the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce and is free to the public.

Dancing In the Rain

District Attorney Bob Lee’s death in October stunned the Santa Cruz community, but he had battled cancer fiercely—and privately—for more than a decade. Now one of his closest friends reveals the remarkable inside story

 

Our Gifts - Fiery Sacrificial Lights to One Another

Wednesday is Christmas Eve, Hanukkah ends and the Moon is in Aquarius, calling for the new world to take shape at midnight. Thursday morning, the sun, at the Tropic of Capricorn, begins moving northward. The desire currents are stilled. A great benediction of spiritual force (Capricorn’s Rays 1, 3, 7) streams into Earth. Temple bells ring out. The heavens bend low; the Earth is lifted up to the Light. Angels and Archangels chant, “On Earth, peace, goodwill to all.” As these forces stream into the Earth they assume long swirling lines of light, in the likeness of the Madonna and Child. The holy child is born. Let our hearts be “impressed” with and hold this picture, especially because Christmas may be difficult this year. Christmas Day is void of course moon (v/c moon), which means we may feel somewhat disconnected from one another. It’s difficult to connect in a v/c moon. Try anyway. Mercury joins Pluto in Capricorn. Uh oh … we don’t bring up the past containing any dark and difficult issues. We are to attempt new ways of communicating—expressing aspirations and love for one another, replacing wounding, sadness, lostness, and hurts of the past. Play soothing music, pray together, have the intention for peace, harmony and goodwill. Don’t be surprised if things feel out of control and/or arguments arise. We remember, before a new harmony emerges, chaos and crisis come first to clear the air. We are to be the harmonizers. Christmas evening is more harmonious, less difficult, more of what Christmas should be— radiations of love, sharing, kindness, compassion and care. Sunday, Feast Day of the Holy Family, is surprising. Wednesday is New Year’s Eve, the last day of 2014. Taurus moon, a stabilizing energy, ushers in the New Year. Happy New Year, everyone! Peace to everyone. Let us realize we are gifts radiating diamond light to one another. Living sacrificial flames!

    What downtown business is good for both one-stop shopping and last-minute gifts?

    The Homeless Garden Project store. Because it is a community effort and has really useful and beautiful things, and allows you to connect with a lot of folks who are doing great work in Santa Cruz. Miriam Greenberg, Santa Cruz, UCSC Professor

     

    Vino Tabi Winery

    One of Santa Cruz’s most happening areas to go wine tasting is in the westside’s Swift Street Courtyard complex. Ever since a group of about a dozen wineries got together and formed Surf City Vintners (SCV), the place has been a hive of activity, and a wine-tasting mecca. Adding to the mix is the lively Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing beer company—making Swift Street Courtyard a perfect spot for a glass of wine or a pitcher of ale.
