Snood Mood

blog_snoodWhat exactly is a snood? A) A furry, ape like creature living in the jungle canopy of Borneo, B) A netlike piece of fabric that covers the back of a woman’s hair, or C) A cream filled Croatian pastry similar to an éclair. Did you choose B? Congratulations! You know your fashion history. Since the Middle Ages, women have been wearing snoods, essentially a type of hood, to keep their intricate hairstyles intact. Snoods eventually fell by the wayside until the Civil War era, when they came back into fashion in the form of net like headbands that were woven into elaborate up-dos. Snoods went out of fashion again, only to reemerge as this season’s must-have accessory. Among the more enviable snoods are the papaya orange Missoni or the iconic checked Burberry variety. Get your snood quickly before it disappears from the fashion landscape for the next 100 years.

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
