Alma del Pueblo

The Santa Barbara Public Market is slowly being constructed at the old "Safeway" Vons on the corner of Chapala and Victoria. Their website says they'll be up and running in 2012....I think they might be a little "off" there.

Hostess has short shelf life

unlike it's ubiquitous product, Twinkies. Hedge Fund owned Hostess filed for bankruptcy earlier...and now it says it will shutter it's factories.
Hostess Brands says it is going out of business, closing plants that make Twinkies and Wonder Bread and laying off all of its 18,500 workers - Salt Lake Tribune

So...while workers are struggling to survive as their livelihood is shuttered, the Silver Point Hedge Fund CEO, Edward A. MulĂ©, is basking in luxury in his 15,045-square-foot Connecticut residence (pdf) and the CEO of Hostess itself is sucking some financial juiciness out of the company while the workers are paid crumbs.
Rayburn announced that the pay of the four top executives would go down to $1 for the year, but that their full salaries would be reinstated no later than Jan. 1. Hostess pays Rayburn $125,000 a month, according to court filings. At the same time Rayburn became CEO, Gephardt's son Matthew, 41, the COO of the Gephardt Group, was put on the Hostess board as a $100,000-a-year independent director. - CNN Money

LA Weekly lists 5 top Chardonnays for the Holidays

and two in Santa Barbara County are on it. Cheers!

2009 Chanin Santa Maria Valley Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay 
Gavin Chanin worked three vintages under the tutelage of Jim Clendenen, whose Au Bon Climat chardonnays have been models of restraint for decades. He's learned well: floral, mineral, zesty, there's a thrilling tension to this wine as it hits the tongue. -- About $35

2010 Alma Rosa Santa Rita Hills El Jabali Vineyard Chardonnay 
From the cool Santa Rita Hills, winemaker Richard Sanford suppresses malolactic fermentation in this tangy white, redolent of apples and minerals, a pronounced salinity like it's giving off sea air. -- About $28
