Outside Man Despite working 14 years as a deputy for the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, JOSEPH LAJEUNESSE still very much feels like an outsider. The 47-yearold ex-U.S. Army major hopes to defeat his boss, Sheriff LAURIE SMITH, 65, in next year’s election, but he has few supporters within the ranks and a strained relationship with his union. When the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (DSA) invited him last month to talk to members about his qualifications, the union’s event notice cited his deputy rank bt made no mention of his military service. LaJeunesse called the omission proof that the union is biased toward his other opponent, retired Undersheriff JOHN HIROKAWA, 60. That set off a heated exchange on Facebook with KEVIN JENSEN, a retired captain and failed 2014 sheriff’s candidate, who accused LaJeunesse of slander. LaJeunesse says his career at the sheriff’s office got off to a similarly rocky They start. When the Army Did deployed LaJeunesse in What? 2003 to Iraq—a month SEND TIPS TO before he was set to FLY@ start police academy— METRONEWS. the sheriff’s office COM asked him to resign, he claims. “By federal law, you can’t do that,” he says. “You can’t ask people to resign if they’re serving the country in war.” But LaJeunesse hopes his outsider status helps differentiate him from the five-term incumbent and her former second-in-command, Hirokawa, who together oversaw the agency during a series of high-profile jail scandals. The deputy says his 27 years in the military make him uniquely qualified for the job. For one thing, LaJeunesse says, he served at Abu Ghraib prison as it enacted sweeping reforms after the infamous torture scandal. LaJeunesse says that experience gives him insight into how to transform Santa Clara County’s jails, which have been slow to adopt reforms in the years since three deputies murdered mentally ill inmate MICHAEL TYREE.

Alviso on Fire CASTING THE STONE Alviso resident Mark Espinoza has criticized entrenched interests in the north San Jose suburb, but his checkered past may undermine his message.

Community leaders in Alviso go to war over lucrative developer settlements BY JENNIFER WADSWORTH

S

AN JOSE POLICE showed up to last month’s Alviso Neighborhood Group meeting bracing for a confrontation. So did Dick Santos, a retired firefighter, elected official of the Santa Clara Valley Water District and descendant of one of Alviso’s most powerful and propertied families. The 73-year-old marched into the Alviso Library trailed by an entourage and armed with a lawyer-penned letter of admonition for his harshest critic, Mark Espinoza. Espinoza, 43, was about deliver an

update on a lawsuit he filed against developers of Topgolf, a controversial driving range and entertainment complex slated for a swath of land across from George Mayne Elementary School. The litigation over inadequate environmental reviews resulted in a sixfigure settlement meant to benefit the small waterfront hamlet on San Jose’s northernmost edge. But Santos had serious doubts about Espinoza’s credibility—especially after his Aug. 16 arrest for having 1,200 pounds of illegal fireworks at his house—and his ability to manage a small fortune in community funds. Santos wanted to call him on it. As Espinoza began to speak at the Sept. 13 meeting, members of the Santos retinue began flipping the bird and shouting out questions, derailing the forum and prompting the two cops in the room to intervene. Jill Smith, who chairs the

group, called for order and let Espinoza continue. Still, tensions simmered until the end of the meeting, when, both Espinoza and Santos claim, things got physical. Each accuse the other of being the aggressor. Espinoza says Santos kicked him in the leg on his way out. Santos argues the opposite is true, that Espinoza back-kicked him. “The man is the most crookedest person that you’ll ever meet,” Santos says. “He’s a rat.” Alviso has a raucous reputation, largely because of the Santos family. Longtime residents recall how Dick Santos’ father, Tony P. Santos, once punched a detractor at a flood-control meeting. At a task force convened to name a street after Santos Sr., Dick Santos reportedly threatened to fight someone who called his dad “a crook.” Though Santos’ charitable endeavors have earned respect and his work with the water district helped Alviso turn its marshy shores into a public park, his pro-development stance and fiery demeanor have also inspired resentment from residents who feel


1966 Volkswagen “Samba” bus to an unsuspecting buyer in Texas. More disturbing is Espinoza’s relentless abuse of his wife and children. From before his marriage in 1994 and up through this past summer, court records show, Espinoza has been arrested, jailed and named in restraining orders for violence against his own family. (A full summary of Espinoza’s criminal record and allegations of abuse can be found online at SanJoseInside.com.—Editor) Over the years, Espinoza’s wife filed several restraining orders and tried to divorce him on more than one occasion. The wife also claimed that Espinoza threatened to take her life. “Throughout our marriage,” she wrote, “he has taken me to the hills with a shovel in the back saying he was going to kill me.” Only in the past year did Espinoza and Santos turned against one another. When Espinoza made his foray into activism in 2014 to oppose a large-scale manufacturing facility, Santos supported his lawsuit against the developer, Trammel Crow. A few years ago, Espinoza revived the long-dormant Organizacion Comunidad De Alviso, which had sued Alviso’s industrial businesses in the 1990s over pollution and asbestos. He took it upon himself to hold those same players accountable by reporting suspected violations to the city, which angered Santos. Espinoza also began posting old newspaper clippings on the Organizacion Comunidad’s Facebook page about various controversies involving the Santos family, including a 2010 civil grand jury’s allegations that Santos used his influence on the water district to line his own pockets. “Santos doesn’t care about Alviso,” he says. “He doesn’t even live here anymore.” As for his own criminal past, Espinoza acknowledges “mistakes” but insists that he’s paid his debts to society. Plus, he adds, prior offenses shouldn’t necessarily disqualify someone from being active in the community. Longtime Alviso residents say the conflict between Espinoza and Santos is taking away from a communitywide effort to build more grassroots involvement among locals. “Honestly, they’re both taking up too much of the focus,” says Smith, who lamented that her neighborhood group has been “hijacked” by Santos and his cohort of property owners and business interests. “People get the impression ... that nothing is being done. Alviso deserves better.”

that he excludes them from decisions affecting their community. “People have told me that they wish Santos would shut up and let other people talk,” says Jill Smith, 56, a 17-year Alviso resident who has helmed the Alviso Neighborhood Group since 2011. “Unfortunately, it seems that some people think their voice should count the loudest. And that really came to a head at this last meeting.” Espinoza emerged as a prominent figure in Alviso, in part, by articulating that resentment and calling attention to longstanding divisions between the landed families of Portuguese descent—like the Santoses—and the predominantly working-class Latino residents. An outspoken Alviso native, Espinoza stood up against Topgolf and Trammel Crow developers to secure hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlement money for the downtrodden bayside community. He also tapped into a widely felt frustration that developers prioritize Santos family concerns over those of other residents. Last month, Espinoza formed a nonprofit, the Alviso Community Fund, with four other trustees to manage the latest batch of settlement money. Though he declined to confirm a dollar amount, sources familiar with the case put the figure at $350,000. It’s the second lawsuit Espinoza brought against a developer in recent years, and he’s gearing up to litigate Microsoft, which announced last week that it plans to build in Alviso. “He’s a shyster,” says Santos, who’s prone to invective, labeling Smith “lazy” and Espinoza’s ally, fellow Alviso Community Fund trustee Ruben Orozco, “treacherous.” For all his bluster, Santos raises justifiable concerns about Espinoza, whose rap sheet stretches back two decades. Espinoza’s first brushes with the law as an adult came at 18, when he was convicted of misdemeanor petty theft, felony burglary and other theft-related offenses. A year later, he was convicted of stealing a car. In 2002, he had more convictions for grand theft, petty theft with a prior and felony burglary. Espinoza’s moral turpitude is hardly a thing of the past, however. In September of 2016, the California Department of Consumer Affairs revoked his license to conduct smog checks after he was busted for fraudulently issuing certificates of compliance. Also last year, San Jose police arrested him for selling a stolen

getting rolled Rolled rolled Wine industry icon among many concerned about state regulations, corporate interest spoiling boutique cannabis culture BY JONAH RASKIN

A

‌ INEMAKER,‌sought-after‌vineyard‌manager,‌ W cannabis‌aficionado‌and‌Deadhead,‌Phil‌ Coturri‌has‌loads‌of‌stories‌to‌tell‌about‌the‌ cannabis‌industry’s‌current‌upheaval.

The founder and CEO of Sonoma’s Enterprise Vineyard Management and the co-owner of Winery Sixteen 600, Coturri views wine and weed as compatible in the field and on the dining room table. He’d like to see more pairings of the two, and with food, as well. But perhaps more importantly, Coturri wants to warn us all of the dangers ahead for cannabis culture—before regulators destroy something that has been shaped by growers,

smokers, farmers and aficionados during the past half century. Indeed, he has thought carefully about the repercussions of his words and deeds. He hasn’t forgotten that cannabis is illegal under federal law and that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has put it near the top of his drug enforcement list.

A GROWING INDUSTRY Many longtime cannabis cultivators fear state regulations and corporate interests will push them out of the industry. I’ve known Coturri for years, not only as a grape grower and winemaker, but also as a cannabis connoisseur. I’ve previously written about him under pseudonyms. That’s the way he always wanted it. He’s only allowing his name to be used in print now because he recognizes that cannabis is in crisis and needs all of the friends it can muster. As a connoisseur of wine and weed, he’s worried that in the rush to legalize, regulate and normalize marijuana in California, the beauty of the plant and its aromatic flowers that he has known intimately since his college days will fall by the wayside. That’s why he’s coming out of the cannabis closet little by little, slowly and steadily. Indeed, he invited me to his office because he wanted to sound an alarm, before bureaucrats crush a whole way of life. Coturri isn’t the only one to sound an alarm. All across Northern California, small growers share

his fear that new rules will drive many of them out of business and hand the pot industry over to the guys who have big money and who can afford to hire lawyers and consultants. Then, too, Coturri and his ilk argue, quality will suffer, as weed goes corporate and quantity soars. Some say the quality has already declined and that it’s essential to save the endangered world of boutique pot. “We also need to remember the vital 50-year history of cannabis in our community,” he says, “and remember that it’s an integral part of our values and our traditions. We have to keep it alive. It provides meaning to what we do and how we think and feel.” But on the other hand, Coturri says he understands some of the reasons why the industry is being so intensely regulated by the government, more than any other crop in California. “Every Tom, Dick and Harry is

growing pot,” Coturri says. “For the most part, they don’t understand the complexities of the plant, or its medicinal and therapeutic properties.” These Johnny-come-latelies often don’t know what real pot ought to taste like, smell like and look like, he adds. Patrick Malo, co-founder of Green Trade Santa Cruz, sees the threat coming from the other side of the spectrum. “We are going to see a big influx of products from these new corporate companies with large gardens and, in general, it will be hard for them to keep the same quality standards,” he says. “They will turn toward less and less organic production and sustainable methods. That’s what we see in conventional agriculture.” Malo adds that the business model being proposed at state and many local levels are bound to push some smaller businesses out. Jeff Brothers, a senior advisor to

FLRish, Inc., a vertically integrated cannabis retailer, cultivator, nursery and manufacturer who works with South Bay collectives, might probably qualify as “the suit” in Malo’s outlook on the evolving cannabis industry. A former solar and energy portfolio trader, Brothers first considered medical marijuana to be “a sham” when approached about entering the industry for broad-scale cultivation. But after studying the history of cannabis and the therapeutic benefits, Brothers came to realize not only the market potential, but also that marijuana never should have been listed as a Schedule I drug by the federal government in the first place. “That was the sham, not a medical market,” Brothers says. With the passage of Prop. 64 last fall, and now the state’s frantic effort to install the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation

Brothers believes there is room for smaller, boutique growers in the future, as well as deep-pocketed new players that will cover the bulk of market demands, similar to how the craft beer and wine industry work. “I don’t think cannabis will be all that different,” Brothers says. “When I put my consumer hat on, I’m thrilled there will be some larger farms that will have some organic growing techniques at an affordable price. If you believe it’s a plant that the human body appreciates and helps make life better, and the wellness aspects of the plant, you want that plant to be available to more consumers. Is

that scary to legacy growers? Sure, because they’ve had a nice market, albeit gray, and they’ve got good pricing over a product that has had very little oversight and compliance requirements.” Brothers now works with Steve DeAngelo, the Harborside impresario who’s often credited with creating the standard for modernday collectives, and they’re working on ways to fill the gap between what’s available and the coming wave of demand. Brothers asks: “Will [artisan brands] ever create the efficiency and the supply chain issues that a modern industry will require? No, I don’t think so.”

In some ways, Coturri seems like the last of the old-school hippies. He grew up and came of age in the counterculture of the Bay Area, which thrived on pot, protest and psychedelic rock. Coturri arrives for our meeting right on time, smelling of the great outdoors and as fresh as one of the many vineyards he manages. “Come springtime, vineyards take over my life,” he says. He wears glasses, a full beard, boots, shorts and a sweatshirt that reads: “Resist.” Indeed, he’s probably as much of a resister now as he was during the Vietnam War era, and as critical of Trump as he was of presidents Johnson and Nixon. On the wall of the office are

pictures of some of Coturri’s heroes: Janis Joplin; Beat poet Michael McClure; Jerry Garcia; Gary Snyder, the environmentalist and Pulitzer Prize winner; and Owsley Stanley, often described as “the King of LSD.” Born into a working-class Italian-American family in San Francisco, Coturri is a product of the city’s bohemian and immigrant communities. His father and grandfather both made wine. His brother Tony makes wine. His sons Sam and Max also make wine. It’s in their blood. So, too, is THC. “I’ve heard people describe cannabis as a threat to wine, but I definitely don’t see it that way,” Coturri says. “I think it’s time to emphasize to the connoisseurs in both worlds—the people who are using both—not to get wasted,

intoxicated and high just for the sake of getting high, but to appreciate the flavors, the taste and the aroma. In my world, they’re both familial— something to be shared with the whole extended family.” Coturri began to smoke cannabis at the age of 14. (He dropped acid, he told me, before he began to experiment with pot.) He grew his first crop on Sonoma Mountain in 1978. All four of the pot plants in his tiny garden were stolen. Still, he wasn’t discouraged, in part because the California artist and longtime bohemian Robert Pearson McChesney showed him the marijuana that he grew in a greenhouse for his own personal use and the use of his friends. McChesney was in his mid60s; Coturri was in his 20s. “I was

impressed,” he says. “McChesney built his own house with his own hands, and he cultivated his own weed. Now I’m worried that the cultural descendants of McChesney will have a hard time surviving in the new overly regulated world of marijuana. I want them to be protected. I also want the heritage strains to be protected.” At the end of a hard day’s labor, Coturri likes to go into his greenhouse and putter with his pot plants as a way to relax, unwind and be at peace with himself and the world. “Marijuana is an amazing plant,” he says. “I enjoy watching the whole growing cycle, from the germination of the seeds to the flowering of the female plants. It has long been a passion of mine.” This past April, the New York Times published a couple of photos of Coturri. In one, he walks through a vineyard at Kamen Estate, which he manages; in the other, he’s in his greenhouse surrounded by marijuana starts. The article that accompanied the photos describes marijuana as Coturri’s “hobby.” Maybe that’s the way it looks from New York. Here in the Bay, it’s more like a quest for something that’s hard to define and difficult to pin down, but that adds zest to life. The Times article also claimed that Coturri was as “exalted locally” for his marijuana as he was for his vineyard practices. That’s an exaggeration, to say the least. As an icon of the organic and biodynamic California grape and wine industry, Coturri has mostly kept his cannabis connection under his hat and not advertised it. As an undergrad in college, Coturri read and wrote poetry. Back then, he would have liked nothing better than to be a poet, though he realized that he probably would not have been able to make a living writing verse. Still, his love of poetry hasn’t abandoned him and he hasn’t abandoned it. “Once a poet always a poet,” he says. “I’m a poet in the vineyard and in the greenhouse, a poet with pot and with Pinot.”

A quiet Houston suburb is disrupted when a demon infiltrates a local church in this irreverent comedy. The Tony Award-nominated play is set in Cypress, Texas, real-life birthplace of Hand to God playwright Robert Askins. Everything seems fine, until Tyrone—one of the sock puppets the church uses to teach its young congregants about the bible—becomes possessed by the devil. Dark secrets are divulged, sexual frustrations are aired and iniquity proliferates as Tyrone leads his young puppeteer, Jason, and his peers into sin. The play, which opens the San Jose Stage Company’s new season, runs through Oct. 15. (NV)

The Bay Area’s best BYOB festival returns for its 17th year with another eclectic lineup that pairs celebrated Americana songwriters with a handful of acts that put the “Hardly” in Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. More than 90 performers and upwards of 700,000 attendees will cycle through Golden Gate Park for the three-day festival, which runs through Sunday. There will be quick-pickin’ and twangy harmonies aplenty. Roots stalwarts Steve Earle, T Bone Burnett and Justin Townes Earle are on this year’s bill, along with more contemporary sounds from Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, Courtney Barnett with Kurt Vile, and Cheap Trick—because, why not? (MC)

Buyepongo’s infectious panLatin sound takes the traditional Afro-caribbean beat of Belize and Guatemala to L.A. for a funky makeover. When Edgar "Meshlee" Modesto, the group’s founding member, had the opportunity to visit Central America, he discovered a new direction for Buyepongo and was enlightened by the rhythm of Garifuna culture. The buyangú sound—a blaring, but danceable explosion of sax, guacharaca and accordion— inspired his band’s revamped style and their latest album Todo Mundo (All the World). Buyepongo means to cause a ruckus, so they won’t be hard to find this Friday at BackBar. (AJ)

Oakland emcee Clyde Carson is perhaps best known for his 2012 hit “Slow Down.” His newest project, released early this year, makes a serious case for Carson’s staying power. His first studio album S.T.S.A. 2 (Something to Speak About 2), is a sequel to Carson’s first mixtape of the same name. On the album, Carson demonstrates an effortless style and Bay-centric swagger. Carson’s music has appeared in the video game Grand Theft Auto V and his latest effort features notable guest appearances by E-40, DJ Mustard, Mozzy and Keak da Sneak. (AJ)

The season opener will feature two longer works—Across the Calm Waters of Heaven by Ahmed Alabaca and Fantasia Nostalgica by Henry Mollicone— and a number of world premiers and shorter works. (AJ)

If the world were run by diehard jazz fans, Thelonious Monk’s likeness might have been chiseled into Mt. Rushmore’s granite face. This Sunday, the iconic pianist turns 100, and Panamanian dynamo Danilo Pérez is celebrating. Pérez will be joined by bassist Ben Street and drummer Adam Cruz. Together, they’ll play selections from PanaMonk, the Thelonious tribute album Pérez released in 1996. The record includes masterful memorables like, “Monk’s Mood,” “Reflections” and “Hot Bean Strut.” Pérez doesn’t impose his Latin fusion style upon Monk’s distinctive harmonies; instead the pianist uses Monk’s original vision as a guide to improvise.

A Season in Hell IN LIMBO Michael Mazur’s ‘Canto IV: Limbo,’ from the portfolio ‘L’Inferno di Dante,’ is now on display at the de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University.

Mazur’s otherworldly etchings on display in ‘L’Inferno di Dante’ BY JEFFREY EDALATPOUR

W

HAT BETTER SEASON than autumn to contemplate the meaning of hell. Specifically, Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, one third of his 14th-century poem, The Divine Comedy. The artist Michael Mazur created a series of etchings to accompany a translation of the work by Robert Pinsky, a former U.S. Poet Laureate (1997-2000).

Mazur’s monochromatic response L’Inferno di Dante, on display at the de Saisset Museum, is celebrated for his evocative depiction of Dante’s journey and for putting the viewer inside the narrative. We look at the spectral black and white images through Dante’s eyes. Just as the author has imagined an entire underworld in verse, Mazur has conjured up its visual equivalent. His idea of hell works as well as it does because he draws specific references from the book loosely. Something undefined and ephemeral lingers in his ink so there’s plenty of room for the viewer’s unholy visions to enter the frame alongside of Mazur’s.

Halloween aficionados should find inspiration in Canto IV: Limbo. The sky is populated with pale ghosts—all paralyzed in mid-air as if caught by some unseen force and prohibited from drifting further upwards to heaven. In limbo, the moment of rapture is interrupted and weighted down by the memory of sin. Even the dark, hooded figures on the ground have nothing to do but wait for the apparitions to either return or finish their ascent. But as they are now, none of these faceless spirits is going anywhere. The image also runs parallel to the HBO TV series The Leftovers, in which mourning keeps the living in a state of emotional ruin, or limbo. Both the mourners on the ground (the leftovers) and the disappeared are stranded together there in Mazur’s sodden gray space. Pinsky translates the scene for Canto VIII: The Tower — Phlegyas like this: “Before we reached the tower’s base/

Our eyes were following two points of flame / Visible at the top; and answering these / Another returned the signal, so far away / The eye could barely catch it.” Dante and his guide, Virgil, are about to enter the City of Dis, an even lower realm of hell. In his version, Mazur smears the plate with his fingers until it’s smudged with malevolent storm clouds. The tower stands in the middle distance and off center, with a great flame burning all the oxygen to black. In Canto IXii: The Gate to the City of Dis, skulls line the road as the poets approach the entrance. Medusa’s angry mouth shouts down at them from the center of the gate’s crumbling arch. The city ahead of them looks like an endless mass graveyard that repeats itself into an infinity of sadness. It’s at this point in Dante’s journey that you recall, with some relief, that he ends The Divine Comedy in heaven. But Mazur didn’t work on a sequel to hell. He sketches the unhappiest of fates for the many damned. The Murderers (Canto XII) themselves are merely severed heads dripping with blood and viscera. The Lustful (Canto Vi) are caught in a swirling vortex of what must be their irrepressible, messy desires. The Falsifiers (Canto XXIX) rest uncomfortably close together in a sea of naked and bloated flesh. These depictions of heretics are all bleak but none rival Mazur’s Lucifer (Canto XXXVI). He appears as a three-headed demon. Each one of his open mouths is devouring a human soul. His black wings blot out the sky. This is what the abyss looks like when it stares back at you. His work in L’Inferno di Dante remains appropriately terrifying for the subject of hell, and the October arrival of witches and ghouls. Mazur, who died in 2009, also painted lush, colorful landscapes filled with careful studies of flowers. That side of the Massachusetts-based artist deserves a West Coast retrospective to welcome in the spring. Painting an amaryllis was his idea of paradise.

UPROOTED Marking its 15th year, sjDANCEco opens the season with ‘Roots & Wings’ program.

A Day in the Life SINCE ITS FOUNDING in 2003, sjDANCEco has bounded, tumbled and twirled its way through 14 seasons, always keeping an eye fixed firmly on the future of dance. The company opens its 15th year with a production that continues this theme, while also acknowledging the work of the artists that have inspired them. Roots & Wings will feature nods to groundbreaking choreographers Doris Humphrey and José Limón—both pioneers in the field of modern dance—as well as new pieces created by the company’s resident choreographers, Gary Masters, Roots & Wings Maria Basile and Hsiang Hsiu Lin. Oct 12 & 14, $25+ “We have always been focused on new works,” says Hammer Theatre Masters, one of sjDANCEco’s founders. But that’s not to Center, San Jose say he and his colleagues have no reverence for tradition. sjdanceco.org To commemorate the start of their 15th season, sjDANCEco is planning a program that pays tribute to the past, while also looking forward to a new generation of dancers and choreographers. “Day on Earth,” a 1947 piece by Humphrey, showcases the late choreographer’s concept of “fall and recovery”—a theory of human movement built around tension and release, and, more metaphorically, around the life cycle. “Day on Earth” tells the story of a single family, who symbolize the eternal human themes of birth, life, toil, joy, death and rebirth. The piece “World Premieres” is inspired by the personal and artistic history of Basile, Lin, Nhan Ho, and Mathews. A tribute to Limón, “Journey Through the Labyrinth” commemorates the life of Limón—telling the story of his journey from Mexico as a child to his achievements as one of the most prominent male dancers and choreographers of the 20th century. Masters has asked Sam Cortez from Los Lupeños de San José, a Mexican Folk dance company, to choreograph the opening for “Journey Through the Labyrinth,” to depict the different aspects in Jose’s life and his Mexican heritage, “[That] was always a part of him, even though he lived in this country longer than he lived in Mexico.” There will be three performances of Roots & Wings: Thursday, Oct. 12 at 8pm; and Saturday Oct. 14 at 2:30pm and 8pm. —Satvir Saini

Burning the Man DARK VISION Denis Villeneuve, director of ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ channels Tarkovsky and Kubrick in cult classic sequel.

‘Blade Runner 2049’ fills the screen with mesmerizing dystopia BY RICHARD VON BUSACK

A

UGUST AND QUIET, occasionally full of pity and violence, Blade Runner 2049 overwhelms: it’s a technical juggernaut, orchestrated to the bone-rattling sonics of Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch, the sound of some giant rubbing a pair of ocean liners together. Director Denis Villeneuve blends the solemnness of Tarkovsky and the studied blandness of Kubrick, with the same lack of dynamism he demonstrated in Arrival.

This movie called Blade Runner has very little running in it. The soundscapes will keep people from drowsing, as Ryan Gosling—playing K, a synthetic cop—doubles-down on the minimalism he displayed in Drive. Reprising his role as Deckard, a welcome Harrison Ford brings his own humanity to a movie peopled with grim synthetics. The 1982 original was the most Marxist of science fiction epics, about a slave revolt, directed in a style between film noir and science fiction. Ford’s lonely policeman pursued these artificial slaves: the replicants. This time around, it’s more Dick than detective, questioning overlaid false memories over other overlaid false memories, as in Philip K. Dick’s works. It’s been some 30 years since Deckard and Rachel (Sean Young) escaped L.A. and headed north,

as anyone sensible would do. The sunless megalopolis has grown in vastness and darkness, the streets now as wide as air shafts. It rains white ash—maybe the remains of the Sierra forests? Monsoons have led to the erection of seawalls along the coast. The old line replicants with their four-year lifespans and their tendency to go rogue are almost all gone. Their manufacturer, Tyrell, has been engulfed by the Wallace Corporation: they manufacture Nexuses, who are docile, and with human lifespans. No doubt “K” is a Nexus—we can tell from his lack of emotion as he untangles the mystery of a box of dry bones, found buried at the farm house of a dead replicant (Dave Bautista— our new Ernest Borgnine). These bones are the relics of miraculous android. K’s cold, hard-drinking superior (Robin Wright) wants to know more. So does the omniscient Niander Wallace (Jared Leto), a kimono wrapped plutocrat, who lives in a Noh play version of the Phantom of the Opera’s cellar. He has a dead pair

of eyes. Literally dead. We sure know our villain when we see him. When the dreadful Leto threatens a hostage with that mossy old movie threat, “You don’t know the meaning of pain” some wiseass should yelp, “We sure do, Jared, we’ve seen you act.” It’s his henchwoman, euphemistically called Luv (Sylvia Hoeks) who really lights up the viewer’s lizard brain. She’s splendidly villainous, with her poreless skin, the little animated holographs on her enameled fingernails, her black hair pulled back screamingly tight. If there’s any enduring performance in this movie, it’s probably hers. K investigates among the tsunamiwrecked ruins of San Diego, and goes deep in the desert, with dust storms, coppery light and giant nude statues— happily, the year 2049 looks like Burning Man. There he meets the last living man in Las Vegas. Cracked a bit from solitude, the hermit greets K with shipwrecked Ben Gunn’s words to Jim Hawkins in Stevenson’s Treasure Island. On K’s side is the helpful Joi (Ana De Armas), both Siri and electronic courtesan; at one point Joi brings home some living flesh to consummate her thing with K—a pleasure-model prostitute played by Mackenzie Davis. (Davis was ‘Yorkie’ in the celebrated “San Junipero” episode of Black Mirror, where a VR Santa Cruz was Heaven). Joie creates a menage a deux et demi with holographic overlays. These startling visuals must have been a technical nightmare, and it’s quite lyrical, if maybe too lyrical to be erotic. Villenueve’s surrogate as director can be found in a girl in a glass bubble, Dr. Ana Stelline (Carla Juri, the pervy heroine of Wetlands) a programmer of artificial memories. In the Dick phrase, she can remember it for you wholesale. The film is strongly peopled with women—knowing and strong, giantesses in statue form, in dancing Bollywood holographs, or in three story tall pink advertisements. They taunt the beaten up, past-haunted K. It’s a future-verse of femme fatales. The odd thing is that it’s all more grand than threatening. The misandry-prone geek bros won’t know what hit them.

HARRY DEAN STANTON, who died in September, was something better than a movie star, a character actor with some 60 years of credits. Lucky isn’t the last of Stanton, but it’s likely the last best view we’ll get of the actor, who, at the end looked like an outsider artist statue of Abe Lincoln carved out of cypress wood. Director John Carroll Lynch follows a week in the life of the 90-ish Lucky—he got the name back in the Navy, since he had the cushy job of a ship’s cook. The old man has a place out in the desert, not far from the saguaro cactuses, and he follows an undemanding schedule: exercising in his skivvies, making some Lucky coffee from a machine that keeps blinking “12:00” in fiery red letters, and tottering on downtown to get UR, 82 Mins. some cigs and some chat at the diner. At night he goes Camera Cinemas for a couple of rounds at a local bar. There are barfly movies of the Bukowski vein—this one’s more of the William Saroyan vein; lots of harmless backtalk but nothing fisty. (Entering the tavern, Lucky croaks: “One of you will betray me!” “Ha! We’ll all betray you!” comes the reply.) A regular patron, played by David Lynch, puzzles over the escape of his beloved tortoise. He gives a ringing Lynchian speech about the life of such a creature, “noble as a king, but kind as a grandmother.” Lucky wanders, yet the movie seems tight and full of purpose. He exchanges war stories with a Marine (Tom Skerritt), goes off to a Mexican birthday party where he sings a song for the mariachis, and sticks his head in a pet shop, where he mulls over that common pet-store expression “Forever home.” He mentions his fear, his old guilt, but there’s no slowness in his stride as he walks right past a church. Lucky is about the importance of recognizing mortality, nodding at it, and going on your way. This movie is a thing of beauty. It’s said that it was hard to tell how much of Lucky was Stanton or the other way around, but it’s a seamless performance, free of codgerisms. It’s the kind of late-period acting Clint Eastwood tries to do. It’s poetry, and it has a point: What’s the purpose of being a tortoise, or obtaining great old age? Is there a better one than simply being a living lesson to everyone to calm the fuck down? —Richard von Busack

American Boy HEARTBREAKER Rock & roll legend Tom Petty died Monday at the age of 66.

Remembering Tom Petty in the shadow of national tragedy BY NICK VERONIN

O

NE OF MY earliest musical memories isn’t so much a recollection as it is inherited wisdom. I have no clear memory of this, but I am told that as a toddler I would bounce around the house singing the chorus from “I Won’t Back Down.” “You can stand me up at the gates of hell,” I would warble, “but I won’t back down.”

In the wake of Sunday night’s massacre in Las Vegas, the words seem particularly potent. If only someone had the resolve to stand up to the NRA, its almighty gun lobby and so many weakkneed U.S. Representatives; it is they who together comprise the three-headed beast of bullshit cowboy mythology, prepper fantasies and Constitutional cherry-picking currently occupying the ninth circle of America’s own personal hell of gun violence. But we’ll leave that conversation for another time. We’re here to talk about Tom Petty, who died Monday in Santa Monica. He was 66. It is tempting to think that the news of the mass shooting at the Route 91

Harvest Festival might have been what finally broke Petty’s heart. As a musician and a lover of music, it is deeply troubling to think that a concert—a place where people go to experience joy and even transcendence—might be so grotesquely transformed into an epicenter of carnage. And Petty loved his fans. In a Fresh Air segment from 2006—rebroadcast this Tuesday— host Terry Gross asked him if he ever thought about how important his songs were to the people who loved them. Petty answered by recalling his headlining slot at the Bonnaroo music festival, held in Tennessee that same year. He and his band, The Heartbreakers, were celebrating their 30th anniversary. “There were 80,000 people there,” he tells Gross in his smoky drawl. “And they were singing ‘I Won’t Back Down’ so loud that it nearly drowned us out.” That Sunday’s rampage occurred

at a country music festival—and one named after U.S. Route 91, the former title of the street now known as Las Vegas Boulevard—seems worth mentioning. After all, Petty grew up a self-described “redneck” in Gainesville, Fla. There was always a little bit of country in Petty’s rock & roll vision, and America has always loomed large in his music. It’s hard to hold a song like “Free Fallin’” or “Runnin’ Down a Dream” in your head without picturing this country’s myriad roads. Those sacred channels, in a sort of holy union with the automobile, allow for the uninhibited, life-changing crosscountry treks that so many of us have taken or dreamt about. Our highways are pathways of deliverance, gateways to freedom. One might convincingly argue that, in truth, it was the road— the railroad, the dirt road, the paved road—that won the West. Winchester Repeating Arms be damned. But however much the man behind Damn The Torpedoes borrowed from Americana, he gave just as much to the landscape of modern rock. On Saturday—less than 48 hours before reports of his death began to hit the web—The Shins demonstrated the length of Petty’s shadow at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley. In the midst of the band’s closing number, “Sleeping Lessons,” frontman James Mercer broke into a verse of “American Girl.” Though the ramshackle pop tunes of one of indie rock’s most revered bands might seem far removed from Petty’s catalog, it all makes perfect sense. Indeed, how can we imagine the tightly coiled arrangements of bands like The Strokes, LCD Soundsystem or The Yeah Yeah Yeahs without Petty? The same goes for the kind of colloquial, narrative lyricism of a songwriter like Mercer. Petty’s brand of no-frills pop rock is analogous to Steinbeck and Hemingway. His chord changes and licks are spare—but not without style. His lyrics are delivered in plain vernacular, though there is an undeniable poetry to them. There are so many examples of this kind of concise writing in Petty’s cannon, but in the wake of this weekend’s tragedy, there is one that rings especially loud. “God, it’s so painful—something that’s so close, and still so far out reach.”

CONCERT

Hip-Hop Hilarious IN 1996, NAS dropped “If I Ruled The World (Imagine That),” a utopian vision, free of police harassment and racial injustice, with Ms. Lauryn Hill providing one of hip-hop’s all-time greatest hooks. The track would become the rapper’s first mainstream success, just as Hill was finding her first taste of international stardom with The Fugees.

The aim of the tour is to “magnify the beauty of cultural amalgamation,” according to Hill, with performances from comedians Dave Chappelle, Hannibal Buress and roots reggae revivalist Chronixx. Each stop on the 17date tour is also raising funds and providing exposure for a variety of charities and initiatives. The Shoreline Amphitheatre date could hold extra weight for Nas, given the venue’s proximity to Google headquarters. The veteran rapper targeted the tech industry and its lack of diversity in a statement announcing the tour.

Ms. Lauryn Hill & Nas Oct 7, 7pm, $42+ Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View livenation.com

“We are here to lend a hand where it is needed and hopefully to inspire,” Nas said in a press release. “I’m a part of a mission to help build a more diverse tech industry and to encourage my people to see beyond what they believe is in their reach.” Meanwhile, headliner Ms. Lauryn Hill continues to defiantly follow the path she forged in the wake of her breakout album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, a five-time Grammy winner that helped define the ‘90s neosoul movement. The 1998 release remains her only solo studio record, but it continues to transcend its timestamp. Hill has successfully accelerated her touring schedule after several years of shunning the public eye, with sometimes erratic behavior and legal issues surrounding tax debt. It all sounds like a hot mess, and that sometimes holds true at her shows. However, tracks like “Doo Wop (That Thing),” “ExFactor” and “Everything Is Everything” still deliver the kind of substance and soul that only a handful of other artists of her generation have tapped. We’re still singing along. Imagine that. —Matt Crawford

FOX

CLUB

More than 20 years later, the duo is partnering again with a vision to change the world—or at least an attempt to improve it—with the PowerNomics Tour. The outing takes its name from Dr. Claud Anderson’s book “PowerNomics: The National Plan To Empower Black America” and his steps for achieving educational, political and economic growth.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In accordance with

Carrie Fisher wrote three autobiographies. Speed skating Olympics star Apolo Anton Ohno published his autobiography at age 20. The rascal occultist Aleister Crowley produced an "autohagiography." To understand that odd term, keep in mind that "hagiography" is an account of the life of a saint, so adding "auto" means it's the biography of a saint penned by the saint himself. I'm bringing up these fun facts in hope of encouraging you to ruminate at length on your life story. If you don't have time to write a whole book, please take a few hours to remember in detail the gloriously twisty path you have trod from birth until now. According to my reading of the astrological omens, the best way to heal what needs to be healed is to steep yourself in a detailed meditation on the history of your mysterious destiny.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): "If an angel were to

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you go to the Historical Museum of the Palatinate in Germany, you will see a jug of wine that was bottled in 1687. In accordance with astrological omens, Sagittarius, I suggest that you find a metaphorical version of this vintage beverage—and then metaphorically drink it! In my opinion, it's time for you to partake of a pleasure that has been patiently waiting for you to enjoy it. The moment is ripe for you to try an experience you've postponed, to call in favors that have been owed to you, to finally do fun things you've been saving for the right occasion.

the astrological omens, I invite you to slow down and create a wealth of spacious serenity. Use an unhurried, step-by-step approach to soothe yourself. With a glint in your eye and a lilt in your voice, say sweet things to yourself. In a spirit of play and amusement, pet and pamper yourself as you would a beloved animal. Can you handle that much self-love, Taurus? I think you can. It's high time for you to be a genius of relaxation, attending tenderly to all the little details that make you feel at ease and in love with the world.

tell us something of his philosophies, I do believe some of his propositions would sound like 2 x 2 = 13." So said the German scientist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799). Now maybe you don't believe in the existence of angels, and so you imagine his idea doesn't apply to you. But I'm here to tell you that an influence equivalent to an angel will soon appear in your vicinity. Maybe it'll be a numinous figure in your dreams, or a charismatic person you admire, or a vivid memory resurrected in an unexpected form, or a bright fantasy springing to life. And that "angel" will present a proposition that sounds like 2 x 2 = 13.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Unless you have an off-road vehicle, you can't drive directly from North America to South America. The Pan-American Highway stretches from Prudhoe Bay in northern Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina—a distance of about 19,000 miles—except for a 100-mile patch of swampy rainforest in Panama. I'd like to call your attention to a comparable break in continuity that affects your own inner terrain, Cancerian—a grey area where two important areas of your life remain unlinked. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to close the gap. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Based in Korea, Samsung is a world leader in selling smartphones and other information technology. But it didn't start out that way. In its original form, back in 1938, it primarily sold noodles and dried fish. By 1954, it had expanded into wool manufacturing. More than three decades after its launch as a company, it further diversified, adding electronics to its repertoire. According to my reading of the astrological omens, the next ten months should be an excellent time for you to do the equivalent of branching out from noodles and dried fish to electronics. And the coming six weeks will be quite favorable for formulating your plans and planting your seeds. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In my opinion, you're

not quite ready to launch full-tilt into the rebuilding phase. You still have a bit more work to do on tearing down the old stuff that's in the way of where the new stuff will go. So I recommend that you put an "Under Construction" sign outside your door, preferably with flashing yellow lights. This should provide you with protection from those who don't understand the complexity of the process you're engaged in.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You're a good candidate for the following roles: 1. a skeptical optimist who is both discerning and open-minded; 2. a robust truth-teller who specializes in interesting truths; 3. a charming extremist who's capable of solving stubborn riddles; 4. a smooth operator who keeps everyone calm even as you initiate big changes; 5. an enlightened game-player who reforms or avoids games that abuse beauty's power.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If a late-night TV

talk show called and asked me to be a guest, I'd say no. If People magazine wanted to do a story on me, I'd decline. What good is fame like that? It might briefly puff up my ego, but it wouldn't enhance my ability to create useful oracles for you. The notoriety that would come my way might even distract me from doing what I love to do. So I prefer to remain an anonymous celebrity, as I am now, addressing your deep self with my deep self. My messages are more valuable to you if I remain an enigmatic ally instead of just another cartoony media personality. By the way, I suspect you'll soon face a comparable question. Your choice will be between what's flashy and what's authentic; between feeding your ego and feeding your soul.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A Canadian guy named Harold Hackett likes to put messages in bottles that he throws out into the Atlantic Ocean from his home on Prince Edward island. Since he started in 1996, he has dispatched over 5,000 missives into the unknown, asking the strangers who might find them to write back to him. To his delight, he has received more than 3,000 responses from as far away as Russia, Scotland, and West Africa. I suspect that if you launch a comparable mission sometime soon, Aquarius, your success rate wouldn't be quite that high, but still good. What long-range inquiries or invitations might you send out in the direction of the frontier? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): "Intensify" is one of your words of power these days. So are "fortify," "reinforce," and "buttress." Anything you do to intensify your devotion and focus will be rewarded by an intensification of life's gifts to you. As you take steps to fortify your sense of security and stability, you will activate dormant reserves of resilience. If you reinforce your connections with reliable allies, you will set in motion forces that will ultimately bring you help you didn't even know you needed. If you buttress the bridge that links your past and future, you will ensure that your old way of making magic will energize your new way.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You wouldn't expect a five-year-old child to paint a facsimile of Picasso's Guernica or sing Puccini's opera, La Boheme. Similarly, you shouldn't fault your companions and you for not being perfect masters of the art of intimate relationships. In fact, most of us are amateurs. We may have taken countless classes in math, science, literature, and history, but have never had a single lesson from teachers whose area of expertise is the hard work required to create a healthy partnership. I mention this, Aries, because the next seven weeks will be an excellent time for you to remedy this deficiency. Homework assignments: What can you do to build your emotional intelligence? How can you learn more about the art of creating vigorous togetherness?

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF ROBIN ALDEN DOUGLAS CASE NO. 17PR181949 To all heirs, beneficiaries creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both of: Robin Alden Douglas. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: Carlin Jensen in the Superior Court of California, County of: SANTA CLARA. The Petition for Probate requests that: Carlin Jensen be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: November 20, 2017, at 9 a.m. in Dept. 12 located at 191 NORTH FIRST STREET, SAN JOSE, CA, 95113. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a formal Request for Special Notice (DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney of petitioner: John P.

SILICON SILICONALLEYS ALLEYS

GATEWAY GANG All ages celebrated side by side at the Second Annual Little Italy San Jose Street Festival.

Little Italy street fest brings out charming side of San Jose BY GARY SINGH

K

RAZY GEORGE surrounds me on the walls, as does a jersey of San Jose Earthquakes legend Chris Wondolowski. Photos of former Quakes heroes like George Best, Chris Dangerfield and Landon Donovan also grace the interior of Enoteca La Storia in downtown San Jose, so much that I can almost hear George’s trademark gravelly voice and decades-old snare drum.

That blasted thing has infiltrated my eardrums since 1977. Just a few weeks ago, La Storia opened its second location, directly across the street from Henry’s Hi-Life. One section of the establishment also goes by Cafe Calcio. It’s a soccerthemed bar, the only one of its kind ever in San Jose. Outside, thousands of people are crammed elbow-to-elbow along North Almaden and St. John, milling in both directions as the Second Annual Little Italy San Jose Street Festival unfolds. Probably a dozen food booths attract lines extending every which direction. Wine is flowing as the blaring sun beats down on the pavement. But I’m inside La Storia, tearing

through a pizza, gawking at all the rocking photos. Most of them are either Italian or San Jose. One photo depicts the San Jose Earthquakes 2003 championship team, celebrating their MLS Cup win that year LA—a game I attended and covered for Metro. Similarly, other photos depict Italian World Cup championship teams from 1938, 1982 and 2006. Another photo of Landon, while playing for the US Nats, sits on another wall, right underneath a photo of Krazy George from the early ’70s. Former Quakes keeper Joe Cannon also gets his due. I seem to be turning Italian just sitting here. My pizza includes what seems like an entire head of garlic—a good thing. Between the garlic and sausage, I’m a bit concerned about monster breath, but it doesn’t stop me from practically crawling over people at their tables, just to get a closer look at the photos. But beyond that I find the framed

Same Old Storia

jerseys of some of the all-time legends of Italian soccer gracing the opposite wall: Andrea Pirlo, Paolo Maldini and Francesco Totti. Maldini spent 25 years playing for A.C. Milan and no other team. Likewise, Totti devoted his entire 25-year career to A.S. Roma. Krazy George, on the other hand, has spent 43 years instigating crowds at every possible incarnation of every San Jose soccer team since 1974. These are hallowed freaking walls here at Enoteca La Storia. Yeah, I should probably get jazzed by the marble elements, the wood flooring, exposed ceilings and all that stuff. But a fullblown soccer bar, half Italian and half San Jose, is decades overdue. As the street festival rages outside, people continue to filter in and out of the bar. “Senza Luce,” the Italian version of Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” emanates from the stereo. Opera superstar Pasquale Esposito, a graduate of San Jose State University’s School of Music, then saunters in like royalty, wearing a sash colored like the Italian flag, designating him as the “Grand Marshall” of the festival. Multiple patrons rise from their tables and rush to take selfies with him. Later around 4pm, Esposito plays the main outdoor stage, facing directly at the Little Italy gateway arch and into the throngs of people. A rock band backs him up. With a commanding set of pipes, he belts a version of “O Sole Mio” to the rafters, except there are no rafters. And he’s a total charmer. In the crowd, women from ages 8 to 80 are swooning, while men are trying to figure out how they’d even compete with this dude. Just as Esposito hits the stage, many of the vendors have already run out of food. The crowds are more than anyone expected. As I sway through the ocean of people with garlic on my breath, I see everything from blue Italian soccer jerseys to Godfather shirts. Old men in khaki chinos and sun hats straight from the retirement home are dancing next to teenagers. Seemingly everyone has a glass of wine, a cup of gelato or a meatball sandwich in hand. When Esposito breaks into a version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” the crowd sings along with the chorus. At that point, the evening becomes perfect. Every tune will remain in my head for days to come. All is well. Forza Azzurri!

a worker-owned co-op. That’s great, but the real reason to come here is the New Yorkstyle slices. There’s no wrong choices here, but try their Rockefeller Center (pepperoni, Italian sausage, salami, meatballs, fresh garlic) and the ASoNY Margherita, or even the 1-inch thick Sicilian crust.

Amato Pizza 6081 Meridian Ave Ste. 60, San Jose 408.997.7727; amatopizzeria.com This Almaden family favorite has spent nearly 15 years catering to families with their hand-tossed dough, homemade sauces and freshly grated cheese.

MERICA’S FAVORITE food also holds the title as the most contentious category to single out the best. People get personal about their slices, man. But rather than step into the line of fire and divide pizza lovers, we decided to celebrate the most treasured meal by compiling a comprehensive list of pizza shacks, spots to grab a pie and a pint, celebrate a victory with the family or enjoy a wood-fired Neapolitan with a glass of wine. Enjoy!

Amici’s Multiple locations; amicis.com

Cooked at 1,000 degrees, this pizza has no choice but to provide a crispier twist on the Neapolitan style. There’s also no need to wait, as pies cook within two minutes to allow toppings to retain their fresh taste. Also, check out the Buffalo Chicken with buffalo sauce, shredded mozzarella and chunks of blue cheese.

Mike Forter and Peter Cooperstein founded Amici’s in San Mateo after reexamining their East Coast roots and touring pizzerias across New York, Boston and Connecticut. They subscribe to the belief that the only one way to make authentic traditional, Italian pizza is inside a brick oven. Since opening in 1987, the chain has branched out across the Bay to sling classic pies as well as new items, like the Vento with pancetta and scarlet royal grapes.

Cicero’s Pizza

Doppio’s master pizzaiolo Alberto mastered the art of Neapolitan pies in Italy for 20 years, so yeah, he kind of knows his stuff. All pizzas are made with San Marzano plum tomatoes and the finest and lightest grade of flour—hence the name, Doppio Zero—which contains exceedingly low gluten content.

6138 Bollinger Rd, San Jose 408.777.0690; cicerospizza.com The recipes originate from Niagara Falls, where late owner Nunzio Cicero moved from setting up shop in the Santa Clara Valley.

Before we get to the pies, try one of the 46 craft beers on tap. Once that’s done, consider one of their special Indian pizzas. The Sultaan comes with masala-marinated chicken, red onions, bell peppers, garlic, cilantro, mozzarella and creamy curry sauce.

Perhaps the South Bay’s premier spot for authentic Chicago-style deep dish, Patxi’s crust is thick yet tender and the toppings are laid on so heavy that even the heartiest eaters have trouble beyond two slices. The flaky, biscuit-like crust also goes well with honey found on each table.

Family owned and operated for 40 years, Pinocchio's doesn’t measure portions or weigh ingredients—instead they go by feel. Dough and sauce is made fresh every day, and it shows in their classic Margherita with fresh basil and tomatoes.

Skip’s Place Pizza 299 1st St, Los Altos 650.447.1711 A small yet comfortable dine-in joint with plenty of vegetarian options, we recommend their Spinach and Walnut with roasted garlic and basil pesto. The Greek is a flavorful favorite with a chopped mix of garlic, artichokes, black and green olives and feta cheese.

Stackers Pizzeria 18572 Prospect Rd, Saratoga 408.777.7731; stackerspizzeria.com Stackers’ affordable supreme pizzas sustain no shortage of Santa Clara University students. But if the combo seems a little safe, try their Gyro pizza with white creamy garlic sauce.

Stuft Pizza 1426 Dempsey Rd, Milpitas 408.262.4343; stuftpizzamilpitas.com We tried to avoid chains in our list here, but this Stuft franchise offers so much more than the average corporate chop

THE TASTIEST WEEK OF THE YEAR

Terún 448 California Ave, Palo Alto 650.600.8310; terunpizza.com Native Italian chefs Franco Campilongo, Kristyan d’Angelo and Maico Campilongo have mastered the art of pizza, specifically Neapolitan style, which led them to bring the tradition of true Italian cuisine across the pond. Their Neapolitan features a rich San Marzano tomato sauce, topped with a fine fior di latte mozzarella, hearty anchovies and oregano.

THREE-COURSE DINNERS | FIXED PRICE $25 & $35 FOR MENUS AND PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS: GOOD TIMES’ OCTOBER 11 ISSUE SANTACRUZRESTAURANTWEEK.COM

A South Bay institution, this old-fashioned pizzeria uses brick ovens to pack a real crunch. Behind the scenes, T&A takes three days to develop their dough and they make sure to only serve pies piping hot. Choose from either the New York-style thin or Sicilian-style thick crust. Sadly, they don’t serve their famous slices a la carte (someone start a petition!).

Tony DiMaggio’s Pizza 3852 Monterey Rd, San Jose 408.629.7775 Celebrating their 40th year of serving up some of the finest Italian food on the South Side, Tony D’s is the home of the original Stromboli. Think a pizza folded into a nice, neat doughy pillow—but with mustard! One bite and you’ll be a believer.

Vesta 2022 Broadway St, Redwood City 650.362.5052; vestawc.com Vesta caters to individuals with small plate choices. The organized restaurant has a simple menu that separates pizzas by red and white sauces. All are handcrafted and wood-fired. A good pick is the Pork Meatballs pizza with arugula, jalapeño aioli and parmigiano reggiano.

Via Mia Multiple locations One of San Jose’s favorite spots for fast delivery, Via Mia has spent 25 years loading their pies with generous toppings—but don’t forget to go online and grab one of their coupon deals. The Greek Feta is a longtime favorite of veg-heads.

Vito’s Multiple locations It’s hard to go wrong with any of the 12 specialty pizzas at Vito’s Famous Pizza in Sunnyvale, which is connected to Vito’s New York Style Pizza in San Jose. But for those watching their figure, Vito’s also has a Weight Watchers pizza that includes mushrooms, eggplants, tomatoes and garlic.

Willow Street WoodFired Pizza 1072 Willow St, San Jose 408.971.7080; willowstreet.com This quaint brick building in Willow Glen opened its doors in 1991 and has continued to hone their pizza craft ever since. The restaurant uses a wood-fire oven to make their gourmet pies. We recommend their Italian pizza with spicy tomatoes, mozzarella, fontina, garlic and calabrian peppers, or the Prosciutto di Parma with housemade mozzarella, baby arugula and Italian lemon oil.

Zume Pizza Delivery zone from Mountain View to Atherton; zumepizza.com Forget about watching a pizzaiolo creating the perfect pie. At Zume, Pepe, Giorgio, Marta, Bruno and Vincenzo are pizza-making robots. The robots perform the skills needed to make a pizza, and the cheesy names—such as Cheazy-E—offer a variety of choices. As a delivery-only joint, Zume could be the first of similar offshoots to come.
