Attention Deadheads: the show will go on. After a five-year hiatus, the remaining members of the Grateful Dead (Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart) will hit the road with keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Allman Brothers Band/Gov't Mule guitarist Warren Haynes this spring. The band, calling itself just the Dead these days, was inspired to dust off more oldies after Hart, Lesh and Weir played an Obama rally at the Warfield last Feb. The Dead will take its trip around the country starting in April but will host its finale on home turf -- at the Shoreline -- on May 10. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.
