1. The Goldies 2008 - Double Oh Ocho

Metro Santa Cruz presents the Goldies 2008 Excellence Awards—our annual salute to all the good stuff, good people and good experiences that make Santa Cruz shine. While scratching our heads and wondering where in tarnation we stashed the Goldies, you readers get to cast your votes. We'll announce the results in our March 28 Goldies issue.

THE RULES: Fill out at least 25 items or your ballot will not be counted. One entry per person. Include your name and phone number; we may call you to verify your ballot. The deadline for ballots is Friday, Feb. 23, at 5pm. Ballot stuffing is strictly prohibited—stuffers will have their entire ballot disqualified and be forced to watch reruns of Miami Vice.
