Finale Fiesta

blog rene2Santa Cruz invited to support Chris Rene at The Catalyst’s ‘X Factor’ Viewing Party

Who needs tickets to the live taping of “The X Factor” finale episodes this week, when you can be a part of the magic right here in Santa Cruz? On Wednesday, Dec. 21, the community is invited to cheer on local singer/songwriter and show contestant Chris Rene at a special viewing party at The Catalyst.

While Rene will not be present at the event, which kicks off at 5 p.m.—free tickets will be available on a first come, first serve basis at the venue, beginning at 2 p.m. Wednesday—attendees will get to watch the episode on a big screen. The best part? “The X Factor” film crew will be onsite to record the crowd, for a live segment of the episode that highlights Rene’s hometown supporters.

During Wednesday’s show, the top three finalists—Rene, Melanie Amaro, and Josh Krajcik—will battle it out, then the winner will be crowned during Thursday’s episode.

Make sure to get to The Catalyst early to score tickets, then come armed with posters, T-shirts, cowbells (?), and a whole lot of hometown pride. Let’s show the world what Santa Cruz is made of!

Can’t make it? Tune in to FOX at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21, and don’t forget to vote.

Entering Virgo

Sun entering Virgo brings a sign and element change, from Leo’s fire to Virgo’s practical earth. Food, health, grains, service and small animals are in the news and on our minds. It’s one month till autumn. Pumpkins and persimmons are ripening. Venus is in Leo. We radiate warmth; we’re generous, playful and affectionate. Everyone shows off in an ardent, passionate, warm-hearted, romantic and over-dramatic way, reflecting Leo’s fiery nature. Think of life as Shakespeare wrote: life is a play, we are its actors on the same stage together.

Best of Santa Cruz County

The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX
