    I thought the article was really well done. I would have changed a couple of the food/drink recs but other than that no complaints.

    Destination - Santa Cruz

    Lupulo, downtown right next to Spokesman bikes is worth a visit. 14 or so rotating taps, plus a large selection of rare bottles. They serve food. I haven't eaten it, but the menu looks good for cheese/meat eaters. I love CHK's too!

    Yes! Lupulo is great but I am biased as the owners are friends. People should also check out the Art Bar and Cafe at the Tannery Arts Center for post Emma McCrary libations and food.
