Social networking for the foodie set, Eats.com is the latest foray into the ultra-specialized world of web hobbyists. In addition to extensive (40,000 nationwide and growing) restaurant database, searchable by name, cuisine, dish, or neighborhood, you can set up restaurant wish lists and check out photos of your latest culinary crushes. Not mention the social networking component, which -- frankly -- boosts this site to a whole new level of scary food obsession. Just think: by leveraging your friends list, you might finally have the chance to share a few hoity-toity appetizers with, and argue face to face, over the best Vietnamese sandwich in town. If that ain't social networking, I don't know what is.

  • 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.
