And The winner is... 

Wednesday, Feb 19 2014

Watching the Oscars can be exasperating. When a film that should have won didn't, or an actor who shouldn't have won did, the temptation to scream can be enormous. But screaming at a TV in an empty apartment is an exercise in futility, and can't be good for relations with the neighbors. The boisterous, opinionated, and generally sarcastic have a better option: the Up the Oscars Benefit Bash. It's an Oscar party where "the little guy strikes back by yelling stuff at the big screen." Organizers say they will provide free refreshments, but due to the length of the show, attendees are encouraged to bring their own snacks as well. They're also encouraged to bring "high heels and a bad attitude." We'll probably skip the heels, but will definitely bring the attitude to root for American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, or anything but The Wolf of Wall Street for best picture.

  • 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.
