Dude Sweet Dude Sweet! 

Wednesday, May 5 2010
Information about this year's Oysterfest is hard to come by, but punchy when you find it. Sifting through the event's simple Web site, we deduce that it's an outdoor food festival featuring bands you like. Seriously. Cake, the Raveonettes, Jackie Greene, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. Other than that, right, who cares? It's a heavily sponsored event, we can vouch for that, and guess what? Beer plans to be sold! And, um, oysters! (There’s also a "Shuck and suck contest," cooking demos, and an "Oyster-pairing room.") Ten years have taught the organizers to just bring you what you want.

  • 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.
