Love Del Mar and the racetrack - but San Diego has so many cool neighborhoods now - NorthPark with great foodie and brew stops; changing Oceanside in North County has a great contemporary art museum and pier (among other attributes) and Paradise Point is a great "island" getaway or families or couples. if you want additional tips for San Diego check out my piece "San Diego Now" on our Southern neighbor here:

And be sure to track down the amazing ice cream truck Calexico ..

Wow - after 25 years of hard work and dedication the board gives Cay Sanchez a 30 minute marching orders? I know this is common in big companies that have a lot of "sensitive" information - but for a non-profit like this... really? Really? My best wishes to Ms. Sanchez in her future endeavors.

Thank you Michael for another wonderful glimpse back in time...
Having written for/been a contributing editor for the more "current" editions of Santa Barbara magazine over the past 15 plus years, I cannot wait to see this early publication. Will pop into the Gledhill Library, slip on some white gloves and handle our past with care...just as you so judiciously do..

Might she (and the author) be referring to the Epicurian in downtown Santa Barbara on Carillo Street
- or did Carpinteria have a restaurant by this name as well?

And take note:

The Newspaper Guild is conducting a survey to get a feel of how freelancers are faring today. Does it suck? Not so bad? Doing terrific, thank you very much?

Maybe Montecito Bank & Trust - who is so interested in supporting the community and it's many non-profits - should consider forgiving this loan and helping a struggling paper survive? Just a thought...they pass out lots of checks and have a very good profit, that local bank. So why not support a local paper and stake an interest in it even?
