    "Award Winning" Country Wine Tasting Tour  
  Captain Jack's Tours, 933 Castillo St., Santa Barbara CA

Our most popular tour and an experience you will never forget! This wine country tour will escort your party out of Santa Barbara and through the Los Padres National Forest, offering amazing views of mountains, lakes and sprawling hills. You'll enjoy 2 wine tasting stops before heading to an olive oil and vinegar tasting at an actual olive farm (time permitting). We then head into the famous wine country town of Santa Ynez for lunch at Trattoria Grappolo. (Lunch not included in the price. Monday a different lunch location will be chosen.) After lunch we will head into the Santa Rita Hills wine region where you will taste at 2 of the area's top estate wineries. The Santa Rita Hills region is famous for their Pinot Noir & Syrah wines. As we return to Santa Barbara you will be treated to breathtaking views as we descend the mountain while overlooking the ocean, the islands and the American Riviera. (Sometimes the itinerary will be in reverse.) The price includes door to door transportation, as well as all tasting fees. We start this tour between 9:00 & 9:30 and drop back off around 4:00 & 4:30. This is a one of a kind experience for those looking for that "special" day. Captain Jack guarantees it!

    INSIDE PERSPECTIVES: NEO-NOIR AND THE CONTEMPORARY CITY - BLADE RUNNER  
  Pollock Theater, UCSB, Ocean Road, UCSB, Santa Barbara CA
Blade Runner (Ridley Scott, 1982) adopts the noir style as it evokes the not-so-distant “futurescape” of Los Angeles, a dystopian city-world corroded by acid rain. Harrison Ford plays Deckard, a hunter of replicants, androids created to look “more human than human.” Their quest for a longer life span brings them to Earth, where they become a challenge to Deckard’s abilities and his ethical boundaries. Selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, Blade Runner is now regarded as one of the best science fiction films ever made.   ($5 - $10)
