••• Gregory Alan Isakov plays the Lobero on November 26 and 27. Here’s his lovely cover of the Lumineers’ “Salt and the Sea.”
••• For this Thursday’s “art walk” downtown, the Thomas Reynolds Gallery is offering free* shoe shines from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.: “Master shine man Domingo Lopez will join us. For 26 years, he manned the shine stand at Nordstrom in Santa Barbara. Now he’s on the State Street promenade, operating in front of the barbershop at 1233 State.” (*You will be tipping.)
••• A bunch of local organizations “have collaborated to organize two virtual forums on two separate evenings—one for Mayoral Candidates and one for Districts 4, 5, and 6 Candidates. The purpose of the two Forums is to give the community the opportunity to ask questions and hear final words from candidates on important community issues such as Housing, Homelessness, Economic Vitality, Climate Crisis, and more before making final decisions and sending in ballots. Questions from the audience will be collected and posed to the candidates as determined by the moderator, given time available. Register here for the mayoral forum on October 18 and here for the city council forum on October 20. (According to Newsmakers, there will be nine mayoral forums total, so I think this will be the last one I’ll mention.)
••• My husband and I have always wanted to charter a plane to San Miguel Island for a day trip, so I was disappointed when we finally got around to inquiring, only to learn that Channel Islands Aviation is no longer flying to the islands.
••• BW correctly identified last week’s Where in Santa Barbara…?—it’s the First United Methodist Church at Garden and Anapamu streets, which you may know as the church with the rainbow signage on the Anapamu doors.
