Oh my biggest fan, the oldtimer!

Unfortunately for your analysis, amount of comments is not a very good indicator of popularity.

What is somewhat more reliable, however, is which stories achieve a Most Emailed status, and this story has sat on that list for more than a week now. So it is, in fact, quite popular! And tasty!

Sorry for the obvious typos but was rushing before heading out for the holiday. They've been fixed.

Of course, silly errors like these have almost nothing to do with "quality reporting." Thankfully, I've never been accused of having problems with that by anyone with a real name since I started as a journalist many moons ago.

Maybe you should practice a little "quality reading" though. I don't think I've ever written a surfing story in my life.

Sorry that we could not fit in Pig Man and Raccoon, as our poll system limits entries to 10. If you'd like to vote for those costumes, simply write them in below.

MarianneG is an anonymous commenter pretending to be someone that he or she is not. That is why the comment was removed.

It says "this Sunday" in the second sentence, so that would be this Sunday, September 23

For those who want an easy taste, they are pouring Tatomer's Sisquoc Riesling for $9 in a nice sized 6 oz. glass at Three Pickles on Canon Perdido Street right now.

Sorry to miss the Travel Store, but the Blue & Green Guide did feature a list of more than 35 local businesses offering services, gear, etc., including most outdoor stores.

Here's the update listing:

If others want to be added, all they have to do is ask.

Thanks for your support, blackpoodles!

Now if we could just post your comment everywhere that our friendly 21st century Prohibitionists show up, as they are a rather vitriolic bunch (of two or three people).

In short, we cover the wine industry because it is: 1) interesting to a large part of our readership, both locals and, god forbid, tourists; 2) arguably the single most important economic engine in Santa Barbara County and one that employs thousands from all walks and classes of life; 3) probably the most prevalent type of small, family-owned businesses on the Central Coast; and 4) a fascinating culture that goes deep into human history.

If you don't like it, then simply stop wasting your time by reading it and commenting. You just make Santa Barbarans look petty and, frankly, childish.
