Mike Maiorana and the gang at Monterey Bay Boatworks--without him, there''s "Brew With No View." Diane Colwell, high priestess of the boat people, Bay View Deli, Massaro and Santos Restaurant, and all the folks who work at the Pier. Of course, Bob Massaro of Bostrom Management and Terranova Fine Wines, our sage, Fabia and Mary Ann, Carl Massaro--MVP of the whole operation. Susan Platz, graphics, photos, faith.
Drew and David of Clementine''s Kitchen added a dimension unique to this festival. Scott "BT-DT" Reese drew the first rendition of our logo, Karen Loutzenheiser (unpronounceable or spellable last name) of the Weekly, transitioned the logo to electronics and my brother Chris Rhynas in Toronto, brought all our ideas together, nailed the finished product. How about that Moses clan; Jack and Beverly at the gate, Kim, Daisy and Declan, the booth, Jay, Caroline, Kim, Ian, Laura and Ben everywhere, truly a family affair. Sweet Thing...we did it. Dad. Rita. The Hunsakers, Chuck and Heidi--irreplaceable, Joe Mendez, knowledge and power, Charles Pregenzer...appears, helps, disappears. Sal Troia--never heard of us, fronted all the ice we needed, Better Brands Foods, the truck from heaven. Andy Briant of Fashion Streaks...no Andy, no T-shirts, UGO Online, Marjorie Gelin, all volunteers.
Karma, Erhman Hall Band, Cachagua Playboys, Lenny, Doubletree, Monterey Clarion Hotel, Monterey Beach Resort, Pepsi, Herald, Pine Cone, Californian, Sac Bee, Gilroy Dispatch, Clear Channel>, Marci Bracco, Lisa and Catherine, The Weekly--of course, Mapleton Communications, shopkeepers who hung signs, Unlimited Events, A to Z Rentals, Brad--Monterey Beverage, Kevin (Sparky''s), Fisherman''s Alliance of California, Alliance of Communities for Sustainable Fisheries.
