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.

Week of Festivals: Full Moon, Lantern Festival, Purim, Holi

It is a week of many different festivals along with a full moon, all occurring simultaneously. Thursday Chinese New Year celebrations end with the Lantern Festival (at full moon). Thursday is also the Pisces Solar festival (full moon), Purim (Jewish Festival) and Holi (Hindu New Year Festival). Sunday, March 8, Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. The festival of Purim celebrates the freedom of the Hebrew people from the cruel Haman (a magistrate) seeking to destroy them. Esther, the Queen of Persia, who was secretly Jewish, saved her people from death. The sweet cookie hamentaschen celebrates this festival. Friday, March 6, is Holi, the Hindu Spring Festival celebrated after the March full moon. Bonfires are lit the night before, warding off evil. Holi, the Festival of Colors, is the most colorful festival in the world. It is also the Festival of Love—of Radha for Krishna (the blue-colored God). It is a spring festival with singing, dancing, carnivals, food and bhang, a drink made of cannabis leaves. Holi signifies good over evil, ridding oneself of past errors, ending conflicts through rapprochement (returning to each other). It is a day of forgiveness, including debts. Holi also marks the beginning of New Year. At the Pisces Solar festival we recite the seed thought, “We leave the Father’s home and, turning back, we save.” Great Teachers remain on Earth until all of humanity is enlightened. The New Group of World Servers is called to this task and sacrifice. Sacrifice (from the heart) is the first Law of the Soul, the heart of which is Love. This sacrifice saves the world.

When looking for a bottle of something to have with dinner, Gewürztraminer 2012 is not the first wine to come to mind. Given the popularity of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Pinot Noir—to name but a few—Gewürztraminer sits low on the totem pole.
