What’s the best thing Atascadero has going for it?

A semi-rural charm and the privacy, big lots, and oak trees galore.
The downtown core’s historic nature, if the city ever figures out what to do with its untapped potential.
The Walmart, because that’s one shopping option I must have.
The zoo, the lake, and the park are where I like to spend my weekends and warm summer evenings.

Art v. Craft: Spring Arts Annual

While Art lounges in a fainting couch, twirling its monocle and sucking down a dry martini, Craft bumbles its way through Applebee’s wearing culottes and a fanny pack. Art only watches documentaries and foreign films. Craft is a big Will Ferrell fan. That’s what some people would have you believe, anyway. The truth about the distinction between Art and Craft is a great deal more complicated, definitely less cliché, and entirely subjective anyway. Arts Editor Erin Messer makes her spring arts debut by exploring the relationship between art and craft, with a little help in the form of extensive calendar listings from Calendar Editor Trever Dias, who also makes his spring arts debut.
