Event Santa Cruz returns for a second installment

October 14, 2013

Event Santa Cruz is back for a second month.

So what is it?

Event Santa Cruz is a new monthly event aimed at showcasing thriving Santa Cruz businesses and the people behind them.Several Santa Cruz residents will be telling stories about themselves, their businesses and as the organizers put it  ”how awesome it is to live and work in Santa Cruz.” It’s a networking opportunity, a chance to celebrate our city, gather with friends and colleagues old and new and well, a way to show off some of the great stuff being done right here – not over the hill.

This month’s edition takes place 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Nickelodeon Theater. Admission is $10.

Here’s the lineup:

Lauren Hepler – Santa Cruz resident and reporter for the Silicon Valley Business Journal – checked out last month’s Event Santa Cruz, the inaugural installment. Speakers included Danny Keith, executive director of Grind Out Hunger; Margaret Rosas of Looker and TechRaising; Chris Miller of Launch Brigade; Shane Pearlman of Modern Tribe; Ryan Coonerty, former mayor and co-founder of NextSpace Coworking (among other ventures;) Kendra Baker of the Penny Ice Creamery; and Kim Luke, voice of the Santa Cruz Derby Girls and the Santa Cruz Warriors.

    What’s up with the head of a local non-profit insisting on being identified only by an alias? And a single-word alias at that? (By the way, I believe he spells it with an exclamation point, not an “i.” Really.)

    Am I the only one that finds all of that more than a little strange?

      It is totally weird. It also seems very Santa Cruz to me.

      Here’s his explanation (no exclamation point, actually.)

        Thanks, Jessica. I could’ve sworn I’d seen his name spelled with an “!”.

        He says:

        “People really want to know what my last name is, only cause they don’t.”

        That sentence is as puzzling as his mono-moniker.
