Loving the New Calendar

Kudos to the Independent for re-envisioning “The Week.” In the old version, only the events that had Best Bet photos caught my eye. Now, because there are so many more featured events with graphics/photos, I pay attention to more of what is going on in Santa Barbara. With pictures, fun titles, and easy-to-read informational listings, the new look creates a sense of excitement and activity that shows how happening our town is and how engaged we are in cultural pursuits. Thank you for putting forth such a beautiful new way for us to plan our week with “The Week.” Great job!
