Talk:Santa Barbara

There was a time, back in '66-'67, when you could walk or drive down State Street to the State Street pier, and just before entering, there was a street that circled around the harbor. To the right of the pier, on that street, was a little seafood stand. I was a steady customer, as the clam chowder was absolutely exquisite. Finally, after so many trips there, I, for whatever unknown reason, raised up on my toes, and checked out that magical pot of clam chowder, just to see what it looked like, there, on the burners. A huge pot. . . . .

A pot that may not have been cleaned in years!

Slightly below the rim, there was a lip of dehydrated clam chowder drippings that must have been an inch or more thick. I ate my cup of clam chowder, enjoyed it immensely, that day, and never returned.

Next time, - - Aisle Vista.


Pages such as this start to get difficult to use as they get longer. What do people think about breaking this into multiple smaller pages...for example, a separate page for all of the winery descriptions? This would also make such contributions easier to find with the search tool. Thoughts?

See Wikitravel:District article template and Wikitravel:Huge city article template. I'm not convinced that this article has yet gotten so large as to warrant a breakup, but if you feel that it should be broken up then for consistency it needs to be done along geographic boundaries, rather than by topic. Before doing that, however, it would be good to discuss what benefits would be gained and what in particular seems "too difficult" about the current article. -- Ryan 17:35, 9 Feb 2006 (EST)


I evicted the wineries (which were misplaced here) into their respective towns linked to from Santa Barbara County#Drink. That should help. -- Colin 00:42, 10 Feb 2006 (EST)

It appears they're back. Many of these wineries aren't in Santa Barbara, they're in the county. I'd think they should be moved up to Santa Barbara County#Drink again.--justfred 14:24, 13 October 2006 (EDT)

A sample of them in the County article is okay. But it'd be even more useful to point to the places where wineries can be found (Solvang, etc) and let the reader check out the articles for the place they're going. -- Colin 16:25, 13 October 2006 (EDT)
Ah... you did exactly that already :-) -- Colin 16:26, 13 October 2006 (EDT)
_I_ didn't, actually, but I was thinking that would probably be better. Maybe they need to be in both places, but they should either be in one or both but not the SB article. Wonder how they got back here, I didn't see it in the history.--justfred 17:34, 13 October 2006 (EDT)
