What are your thoughts on the Coastal Commission’s decision to shoot down the La Bahia hotel project?

What are your thoughts on the Coastal Commission’s decision to shoot down the La Bahia hotel project? It's too bad. I know that La Bahia has been trying to improve that building and that area for years. Maybe someone could pull some strings and get the Coastal Commision’s head out of the sand.

Do you trust the Federal Reserve?

Do you trust the  Federal Reserve?

I feel like not only do I not understand what the Federal Reserve is doing. I have doubts whether they understand what they're doing.

What’s the most underutilized asset in the county?

What are three great summer meals you've had recently?

What are three great summer meals you've had recently? Pork chops with barbecued peaches and creamy polenta, my wife made that. Local salmon barbecued at home for a birthday dinner. And a miso halibut over mango fried rice. Again, the wife. Loving it!

What businesses would you like to see come to Downtown Santa Cruz?

What businesses would you  like to see come to Downtown Santa Cruz?

I [would] like to see a lot of independent stores around here—to keep it local and not have as many chain stores in Downtown Santa Cruz. They have a better feel to them. More record stores and book stores.

What do you think about patchouli?

What do you think  about patchouli? It's easy to get mixed up with B.O.,
therefore I have a negative response to it. But to each their own.

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
