Most successful people — the ones you're jealous of — have one thing in common: They work really, really hard. Helmed by choreographer and dancer Sean Dorsey, the transgender and queer performance series known as the Fresh Meat Festival features a lineup so wide-ranging it might leave you wondering what the theme is, if you didn't know about the hard work bit. A Pacific Islander choir, a glamorous singer-songwriter, Dorsey's own release-technique modern dance company, and gay Appalachian cloggers, for example. Then there's Allan Frias Productions, a big, fun hip-hop dance company set to perform new choreography described as a "vogue/runway" piece. Frias, who has appeared on So You Think You Can Dance, teaches high-energy weekly classes, and runs Mind Over Matter dance group, exemplifies the thing that ties all these acts together: He works really, really hard. And the results are really, really good.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
