Santa Barbara : an honest review

With Coull’s expansion into the US via the purchase of a great local agency, I’ve had the good fortune to hop over to Santa Barbara a fair few times. I never really find that TripAdvisor does that good a job of highlighting the best spots, so here’s my advice if you fancy visiting.

Nightlife

Some of the Best nights I’ve had out there have been at the James Joyce on state street, great selection of whisky, live music and general atmosphere. Elsie’s is well worth a visit, a locals favourite, great drinks selection, a veranda out back, and stays open late.

The local whites are very drinkable, although they are deservedly proud of their Syrah. The beer on the other hand can’t be faulted. The Firestone brewery makes easily the best ales I’ve had anywhere in the states, and if this is your thing then a visit to Union Ale is definitely worth your time. The service is excellent, and the beverages even more so.

California state law prohibits selling alcohol after 2am, and most bars shut around 12. Of the few clubs, the latest closing and worth your time is probably the Savoy. To get into most bars you will need to take your passport out with you no matter your age.

Places to avoid: Any touristy “British pubs” – just as bad as American themed bars are in Britain, except with more Stella Artois and worse than a wetherspoons.

Dining

Santa Barbara has some great restaurants, being a sucker for a great steak, then no visit is complete without a trip to Holdrens. The wine list is fantastic, aim for a well aged local Syrah and you won’t be disappointed.

Beaches

I L.O.V.E the local beaches. During the day my Somerset grown fair skin can only take so much of the gorgeous weather, but going for a run along the beach at dawn or dusk is one of my all time favourite things. A short drive down the coast to Refugio Beach will find you a sublimely gorgeous authentic beach, great for camping and spotting the local wildlife like diving birds, dolphins, sealions – all the hits.

Hotels

It’s worth staying in a hotel on the sea front even though they are only 3-4 star. The sun bursting through your blinds inviting you to sit out on the balcony overlooking the sea, morning coffee in hand is worth 5 stars on its own. The harbor view inn next to the pier is perfect for this.

Coffee

The French press on state street is easily the best, it refreshingly concentrates on the coffee more than the pretension.

Culture

I was pleasantly surprised how good the local art galleries were. The local Art Museum is the star of the show, and has some excellent examples of modernism which kept me enthralled for a good hour alone.

Add a QR Code to an Image

I love QR Codes, every time i see them it sparks ideas of innovative ways of utilizing them. The main draw back is of course – market take up. I would love to see an app come with every phone, or ideally built into the camera app not just on a phone handset, but in consumer point and shoots too.

Barriers in the way of this are the tools to create them, and add them to things like video and images. I was disheartended to learn that most people and agencies pay to have this done. So i’ve knocked up a quick and dirty way to create a QR code, and add it to an image.

Try the Quick and Dirty App (needs a modern browser)

I’ll iterate it at some point and plugin some tracking so you can see how many times people have viewed it.

The code is free so do with it what you will, it uses some js from the fantastic jquery drag/drop over at ThreeDubMedia

Using QR codes in AS3

Very simple really, google does most of the heavy lifting. Simply load this url as you would to load an external image:

http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=[YOUR-URL]&chs=120×120

Replacing the [YOUR-URL] with a url, i.e. http://bbc.co.uk – and the 120×120 with your own width and height

Example:

var myLoader:Loader = new Loader();
myLoader.load(new URLRequest(“http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chl=http://bbc.co.uk&chs=150×150”));

Would dynamically load a QR code for bbc.co.uk, with dimensions 150 by 150, and load it into the Loader instance myLoader, and would look like this
