Must-See Before TV 

Wednesday, May 1 2013
One thing you should probably have on your bucket list is seeing comedian John Mulaney perform. The former Saturday Night Live writer, who’s semi-famous for writing all of Weekend Update’s ‘Stefon’ sketches with Bill Hader, is ridiculously funny, and he’s working on a sitcom pilot for NBC. If it gets picked up, he’ll probably be as big as Seinfeld soon and then we’ll all be like, “Did you hear how many cars John Mulaney has? I heard he has a building full of ’em!” And then you’ll probably want to be able to talk about the time you saw him at a comedy club in San Francisco before he was a household name. If you’re not familiar with his work, you can check out his 2012 album New in Town. Whatever you do, don’t sleep on this guy, though — Entertainment Weekly hailed Mulaney as “one of the best stand-up comics alive.”

  • 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.
