LocalT_patRPoor House. They play celtic music, a lot of originals and they’re really good. The Broken String Band. They play a lot of originals and some covers. And the South Street Ramblers are really good, and the Lords of Green Bush, and Jon Miller.

LocalT_ezraSambaDá. It's Brazilian music—and a guy in the band was one of my capoeira teachers in school.

LocalT_jessicaA local DJ that’s caught my attention lately is a local guy named Totem, and he's been doing music for a lot of years out in Salt Lake and Wyoming and out here. And he's really been just starting to pick up his stuff and really succeed in making people smile and groove and dance. And that’s the most important thing—is making people move.

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

 

Santa Clara Wine Trail

My memories of growing up in England include my mother pouring port after Sunday dinner—and sometimes a glass of sherry before dinner. My family didn’t drink much wine back then, but we certainly made up for it with the port and sherry.
