Breweries and Bars to Visit in Santa Cruz

In a beer-filled town like San Francisco, it's easy to stay close to home for all of our brew-related cravings. But there's a big, wide world of beer out there... and we'd be remiss if we didn't do some good old fashioned exploring now and again. The best part? There are tons of worthy beer destinations in the greater Bay Area and its surrounding environs, a mere daytrip away.

Happy Friday, South Bay! It's relatively quiet week on the food news front, but there are still a couple noteworthy tidbits to discuss: specifically, a Beaujolais Nouveau celebration and a new hotspot for Indian food.

Happy November, East Bay! The days are shorter and the nights are getting chillier, so there's no time like the present to hunker down with some comfort food and try some new delicious eats around town.
