L.A. chowhound will be visiting Santa Cruz, Ca. on Monday 12-26-05. I know in some communities, Monday night is "closed-sign-a-go-go". Usually, I go for casual fare, such as Seabright Brewery or a fish place on the pier. I will be staying on Ocean near the freeway, and am 'familiar' with more or less the entire Santa Cruz area.
What's interesting for me to try - that's open on a Monday evening - in Santa Cruz? Any style / cuisine is welcome. No alcohol this trip, so I am not planning on visiting any wineries or breweries.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
