The 411

kioskSANTA CRUZ > New information kiosk aims to help people navigate Santa Cruz

What’s the closest beach? How do I get to the Museum of Art & History? How far is the Mystery Spot? Is there a good breakfast spot around here?

“If we weren’t here, who would you ask that question [to]?” says Chip, the Downtown Association executive director who goes by one name, with a grin.

“We have so much information that we’re just waiting to give out,” chimes in Kim Luke, the Downtown Association communications director. The two are standing inside of the new Downtown Santa Cruz Information Kiosk, an info hub that is now open in front of the New Leaf Community Market on Pacific Avenue.

The kiosk hopes to be able to provide both locals and visitors alike with any and all the 411 that they can about Santa Cruz’s multitude of attractions. The staff has plenty of resources and guides on hand, from a large book of restaurant menus to personalized recommendations for events, music and theater shows, and everything in between.

“This is a conduit for people to really take advantage of it down here,” says Chip.  The staff believes the kiosk will not only be able to provide information for those who are just visiting Santa Cruz, but also to help locals get to know their own city on a deeper, more detailed level. “This is also an important way to support connections with people and our businesses,” Chip adds.

There will be a grand opening and ribbon cutting for the Information Kiosk tonight, Friday, May 17, at 5 p.m. The info center is located at 1130 Pacific Ave., K2, and is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, and until 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
