The only places in Santa Cruz to watch ball games are at local ball parks. One can watch a television broadcast of the games at many venues, including from one's home. Different is not the same.

A little rant on Cilantro's:A couple years ago a buddy and me were throwing a few back and eating some apps at the bar area. When it turned 10PM we were asked to leave since we did not have collars on our shirts and the bar would be turning into a "night Club". I dropped at least $60 that night but it didn't matter. They said it was to discourage 'gang activity'. Ok, so gangsters don't wear collars!?! Anyways, have not been back since, my $$ and vote goes to Applebees.
