Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk food recommendations?

ubetty | Jun 24, 201210:22 AM     8

It's summertime and that means 1907 days ($1.00 rides on Mon and Tues) at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. We're heading over there tomorrow to ride the Giant Dipper until our backsides ache, throw brass rings from the carousel, enjoy sunset from the rickety Ferris Wheel, and indulge in some of our favorite culinary guilty pleasures. I'm generally not a huge fan of boardwalk food and usually stick to the Cajun Corndog, freshly fried of course. (I do have my standards, such as they are.) One of the group insists we go to Marini's for dessert, i.e. chocolate-covered bacon. I'm probably not a deep-fried Twinkie or cheesecake kind of person, some of the boardwalk food is a little scary, but I don't want to miss out on any hidden gems either. Anybody have any boardwalk favorites we should try?
