High Times

ticker_wammfestThe ninth annual WAMMFEST comes at an interesting time politically this year. In addition to celebrating the merits of medicinal pot, the Saturday, Oct. 22 event hosted by the state’s first medical marijuana collective, the Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana, will also be a forum for those who support medical marijuana to speak against the recent federal plan to close California cannabis clubs. WAMMFEST began after the organization was raided by the DEA in 2002. The 2011 installment will be held at San Lorenzo Park from noon to 5 p.m. on Oct. 22 and will feature live music, local food, art, crafts, and more.

hey the feds are only going after some clubs.......tax evasion. The feds just want a cut on the action.......I honestly think they should just legalize it. Or should I say RELEGALIZE? It was legal for most of this country's history anyways, the original reasons for the ban were pretty much racist.

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

 

Santa Clara Wine Trail

My memories of growing up in England include my mother pouring port after Sunday dinner—and sometimes a glass of sherry before dinner. My family didn’t drink much wine back then, but we certainly made up for it with the port and sherry.
