Let's do lunch:

Restore your faith in lunch counter classics -- grab a B.A.L.T. (basil, avocado, lettuce, and tomato sandwich) and an order of apricot crisp, says SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody, at The Sentinel (37 New Montgomery at Sevenson, 284-9960).

Drink therapy:

Hang out at the grand circular bar, grok the clubby ambience, and save a little: $5 classic cocktail hour (including wines by the glass and beers) at Orson (508 Fourth St. at Brannan, 777-1508), 5-7 p.m.

Score $4 wells and $2 off drafts and house wines, plus half off bottles of premium wines, at Harry's Bar (2020 Fillmore at Pine, 921-1000), 3-6 p.m. Stick around (or go drink somewhere else and stagger back) for a late-night classic burger and fries for $6.95, 10 p.m.-midnight.

  • 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.
