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.

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
