Rockers Pizza Calls a Meeting

altSANTA CRUZ > Neighborhood meeting scheduled for Rockers Pizza Kitchen

Rockers Pizza Kitchen may not be around for much longer if the City of Santa Cruz gets its way. Served with a violation of Santa Cruz municipal codes Section 108.4 and Section 24.10.100 for installing an illegal take-out window, the future of the business is at stake.

Owner Paul Gerhardt intends to contest the issue, saying that the window was installed by the previous tenant, Pleasure Pizza. Gerhardt has called for a “neighborhood meeting” with local business owners, to be held at the Catalyst Atrium on Tuesday, April 17 at 6 p.m.


“If you do business on Pacific Avenue and/or you currently use the sidewalk as an extension of your business in any way, you will definitely want to attend,” Gerhardt says in his invitation to local business owners, the SCPD and the City of Santa Cruz.

Gerhardt claims that his business would not survive without the sidewalk take-out window. In the letter, he said, “The take out window is responsible for the majority of our revenue, and if we are forced to remove the take out window, Rockers Pizza Kitchen will not survive and 10 jobs will be lost.”

Gerhardt can be contacted by phone at (408) 202-0639 and via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

"illegal take-out window" sounds pretty lame as a violation charge.. especially when that take out window is on the sidewalk? I can't help but wonder if there isn't an alternate agenda in attacking Rockers...

I love the window and am glad its there. It is nice to not have to go inside when you are just strolling down the street. This city is losing sight of what is good for the citizens. Is this really something for them to get into at the moment with all the other more important issues going on in Santa Cruz? Leave Rockers window alone, my kids and I love it.

It took them a long time to decide that it was an illegal take-out window.

Mountain Mystic

When Cora Evans died in Boulder Creek in 1957, her thousands of pages of religious writings hadn’t yet been published. More than a half a century later, Evans’ fiery visions and spiritual devotion have inspired a crusade within Catholicism to make her the Santa Cruz Mountains’ first saint

 

Wesak (Water) Taurus Solar Festival, Buddha Blesses the Earth

A most important celebration occurs Sunday, May 3—the Wesak Taurus Buddha Solar Festival/full moon. At the moment of the full moon the Buddha’s presence enters the Earth plane for eight minutes. He brings the Will-to-Good from the Father, which, when reaching humanity becomes goodwill (Mother Principle). Held yearly in a valley hidden deep within the Himalayas, the Wesak festival is prepared for for months in advance (beginning at Winter Solstice). On festival day, amidst pilgrims, disciples and Holy Ones gathered in the valley, the Buddha is invoked through movement, symbols and mantrams. At the moment of the full moon, hearing the words, “We are ready, Buddha, come,” the Lord of Illumination (brother of the Christ) appears in the clouds above the altar to emanate forth the will and purpose of God to earth. The blessing of the father is then held in safekeeping for distribution at the June full moon Goodwill Festival. The day of Wesak (May 3, 8:42 p.m. West Coast) all disciples (east and west) place crystal vessels filled with pure water outside (in gardens, on rooftops, porches and steps) under the heavens. As the Buddha blesses the world, all waters, including waters within our bodies, are blessed. The Buddha is accompanied by the Forces of Enlightenment to illuminate humanity’s minds. Humanity then begins to express new constructive, productive and beneficial ways of the Art of Livingness. Wesak covers five days—two days (before) of dedicated preparation, the actual festival “Day of Safeguarding,” and two days (after) distributing goodwill (the NGWS to humanity). Join us in the Valley by reciting the Great Invocation, mantra of direction for humanity.

Hess Collection Winery

My friend Emma from London came to visit for a few days in early March, so I took her wine tasting in the Santa Cruz Mountains—a rare treat for her, as there aren’t too many vineyards in the middle of London. Her visit reminded me how fortunate we are to live in this paradise of ultra-fresh produce, with grapes growing in wild profusion.
