The Santa Barbara That Was, Through the Lens of Our Photographers

The year 2022 will go down as a year of reconciliation and recovery, as Santa Barbara and the world at large pulled itself out from the COVID pandemic and grappled with social, political, and cultural standards that continue to evolve at a breakneck pace.

That translated to many happy days: a return to live music and festivals, for instance, and a focus back on the arts, entertainment, and culinary scenes that make this region such a delightful place to live. But it also involved a lot of introspection: protests over rising rents and the removal of human rights, worrying about a needless war in Ukraine,

decisions about the kinds of leaders we trust to take us forward.

For the past 12 months, we’ve experienced the visual evidence of these matters primarily through the lenses of Ingrid Bostrom, Carl Perry, Matt Perko, Fritz Olenberger, and others. In our end-of-year tradition, we present the best examples of their work in this week’s issue, and we hope you enjoy a colorful, emotional look back at the year that was.

Happy New Year, and we look forward to making more memories with you in 2023.

Alfred Noreen

4/1/1924 - 12/2/2022

ter; and all his progeny: four sons, a daughter, five granddaughters, five grandsons, three great-grandsons, and three great-granddaughters.

Alfred Noreen, a professional mechanical engineer who ended his career as an award-winning engineering professor, died on December 2nd in Santa Barbara. He was 97.

The cause was complications from a fall sustained two months earlier while he was gardening behind his apartment, according to his family.

On June 23, 1945, Mr. Noreen graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle with a degree in mechanical engineering; was commissioned as a U.S. Navy ensign; and married his high school sweetheart, Arlene Reilley.

Mr. Noreen began his engineering career at a General Electric jet engine factory in Cincinnati, Ohio. He then joined Boeing in the Seattle area, where he rose to the management level.

A memorial service will be held from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM on 2023-01-07 at First Presbyterian Church of Santa Barbara, 21 East Constance Avenue, Santa Barbara, CA.

1958 - 2017

Parade participants wave the Ukrainian flag in this June’s Summer Solstice Celebration, which returned after a two-year pandemic pause with an updated parade route along Santa Barbara Street. The 2022 Santa Barbara International Film Festival saw the return of in-person screenings and tributes at venues such as the Arlington Theatre, where local Ukrainian activist Tatyana Taruta and Cinema Vanguard Award recipient Benedict Cumberbatch both sought to raise awareness and funds for relief efforts in Ukraine.

Gathering at the County Courthouse in June, Santa Barbara protesters blasted the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and the constitutional right to an abortion.

In October, Santa Barbara’s Iranian community took over the corner of State Street and Cabrillo Boulevard to join in worldwide protests for women’s rights in Iran, with several women cutting off locks of hair in a symbolic show of solidarity.

After two summers of severely scaled-back or canceled Fiesta events, Old Spanish Days returned in full force, with a renewed spirit and a brand-new parade route that drew thousands along Cabrillo Boulevard for the El Desfile Histórico and El Desfile de los Niños parades. A beautiful Memorial Day weekend brought larger crowds than ever to the I Madonnari chalk-painting festival held in front of Old Mission Santa Barbara, which had been relegated to online photos and artists’ sidewalks the prior two pandemic years. This year’s Summer Solstice Celebration themed “Shine” featured a full-fledged return that included brightly costumed dancers.

My foodie duties for the year wouldn’t be complete without summarizing activity at food & drink destinations on the South Coast. Undoubtedly this was a difficult year for many local restaurants as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, but some eateries came back with a bang like the days of yesteryear were just a bad dream.

BOOM TIMES: I started covering the local restaurant scene in 1994 with the launch of the SantaBarbara.com Restaurant Guide, but I only started keeping track of restaurant statistics when this column debuted 15 years ago, so that’s how far back my records go. Though 2021 saw the lowest number of restaurant openings on record, 2022 experienced a big comeback and nearly achieved the highest number of openings on record. In 2022, there were 51 openings (record high is 54) and 34 closings (record low is 30).

WELCOME BACK: Two huge reopenings occurred on the South Coast this year: Dutch Garden restaurant, an icon for more than 75 years, opened under new ownership and with a huge remodel. Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant, a favorite in Goleta since 1958, reopened after experiencing a kitchen fire in 2020.

FALLEN ICONS: Marty’s Pizza, a local icon since 1984, closed because its building had to be demolished as part of a bridge replacement project. Goleta Coffee Company closed after 25 years in business. Kai Sushi Shabu-Shabu downtown said goodbye after the serving the South Coast for decades.

FLASH IN THE PAN: Restaurants that both opened and closed in 2022 include Beans BBQ (six months, catering is still alive and well) and Texas Tacos (seven months)

RESTAURANT OPENINGS: December: Black Sheep, Corazón Comedor, Elena’s Kitchen, Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant (reopened), Saint Remy (inside Marriott), We Want the Funk; November: Brass Bird Coffee, IHOP Goleta, Jersey Mike’s Subs, L’antica Pizzeria da Michele, Mattei’s Tavern, Oat Bakery; October: Augie’s Tequila, Fresco Café downtown, Kyle’s Taproom, Thai Bistro; September: Campo del Sol, Checo’s, Saigon; August: Kaz ToGo Japanese Food, Mokutan; July: AMA Sushi (inside Miramar), Anchor Rose, Lao Thai Restaurant, Rare Society, Santa Barbara Food Connection, Sweetie’s Ice Cream Shop, Vons Chicken (reopened); June: Lighthouse Coffee, Taza Mediterranean Street Kitchen; May: Carp Moon Café, Finch & Fork (reopened), Hummus Republic, Mangione’s Italian Ice, Mariscos, Rodeo Room Whiskey Lounge; April: Casa Comal, Hook & Press Donuts, Lighthouse Coffee, Local, Matty’s Hot Chicken, Montecito Deli (reopened), Saint Bibiana Pizzeria, Sazón Latino, Zocalo; March: Beans BBQ (now closed); Goodland BBQ, Hibachi Steakhouse and Sushi Bar (reopened), Shalhoob’s at the Market, Wingman Rodeo; February: Bedda Mia, Little Heart Cafecito, Soul Bites, Starbucks De la Vina; January: Broad Street Oyster Company, El Patio Evening, Texas Tacos (now closed)

ARIES

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor,” writes Aries author Anne Lamott. “It will keep you cramped and insane.” I think that’s a key theme for you to embrace in 2023. Let’s express the idea more positively, too. In Navajo culture, rug weavers intentionally create small imperfections in their work, like odd-colored beads or stray pieces of yarn. This rebellion against unattainable exactitude makes the art more soulful. Relieved of the unrealistic mandate to be flawless, the rug can relax into its beauty.

TAURUS

(Apr. 20-May 20): Here are my four decrees for you in 2023, Taurus. (1) You are cleared to be greedy if it’s in service to a holy cause that fosters others’ well-being as well as yours. (2) It’s permissible to be stubborn if doing so nourishes versions of truth and goodness that uplift and inspire your community. (3) It’s proper to be slow and gradual if that’s the best way to keep collaborative projects from becoming slipshod. (4) It’s righteous to be zealous in upholding high standards, even if that causes less diligent people to bail out.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20): In 2023, many interesting lessons will arrive via your close relationships and collaborations. You will have the potential to learn more about the art of togetherness than you have in a long time. On occasion, these lessons may initially agitate you. But they will ultimately provide more pleasure and healing than you can imagine right now. Bonus prediction: You will have an enhanced talent for interweaving your destiny together with the fates of your allies.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22): Here are some projects I’d love to see you pursue in 2023: (1) Teach your allies the fine points of how to cherish you but not smother you. (2) Cultivate your natural talent for appreciating the joys of watching and helping things grow: a child, a creative project, a tree, a friendship, or your bank account. (3) If you don’t feel close to the family members that fate provided you with, find others you like better. (4) As you explore territories that are further out or deeper within, make sure your Cancerian shell is expandable. (5) Avoid being friends with people who are shallow or callous or way too cool. (6) Cultivate your attraction to people who share your deepest feelings and highest ideals.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22): Mystic teacher Terence McKenna said, “You have to take seriously the notion that understanding the universe is your responsibility, because the only understanding of the universe that will be useful to you is your own understanding.” This will be key advice for you in 2023. You will be wise to craft an updated version of your personal philosophy. I suggest you read a lot of smart people’s ideas about the game of life. Make it your quest to commune with interesting minds who stimulate your deep thoughts. Pluck out the parts that ring true as you create a new vision that is uniquely your own.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): How should we refer to your romantic adventures in 2023? We could be whimsical and call them “Ritual Mating Dances on the Outskirts of History.” We could be melodramatic and call them “Diving into the Deep, Dark Mysteries in Search of Sexy Treasures.” Or we could be hopeful and call them “A Sacred Pilgrimage to the Frontiers of Intimacy.” I think there’s a good chance that all three titles will turn out to be apt descriptors of the interesting stories ahead of you especially if you’re brave as you explore the possibilities.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Coddiwomple” is an English slang word that means to travel resolutely and dynamically toward an as-yet-unknown destination. It’s not the same as wandering aimlessly. The prevailing mood is not passivity and vagueness. Rather, one who coddiwomples has a

sense of purpose about what’s enjoyable and meaningful. They may not have a predetermined goal, but they know what they need and like. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, the next six months will be an excellent time for you Libras to experiment with coddiwompling.

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the theater of ancient Greece, the term anagnorisis referred to a pivotal moment when a character discovered a big truth they had previously been unaware of. Another Greek word, peripeteia, meant a reversal of circumstances: “a change by which the action veers round to its opposite.” I bring these fun ideas to your attention, dear Scorpio, because I think 2023 could bring you several instances of an anagnorisis leading to a peripeteia. How would you like them to unfold? Start making plans. You will have uncanny power to determine which precise parts of your life are gifted with these blessings.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Winters are cold in Olds, a town in Alberta, Canada. Temperatures plunge as low as 24 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. But an agronomist named Dong Jianyi has built a giant greenhouse there that enables him to grow vegetables year-round. He spends no money on heat but relies on innovative insulation to keep the inside warm. In 2021, he grew 29,000 pounds of tomatoes. I propose we make him your inspirational role model for 2023, Sagittarius. My guess is that, like him, you will be a wellspring of imaginative resourcefulness. What creative new developments could you generate? How might you bring greater abundance into your life by drawing extra energy from existing sources? How could you harness nature to serve you even better?

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In accordance with your astrological omens in 2023, I’ve chosen a quote from Capricorn storyteller Michael Meade. I hope you will make it one of your core meditations in the coming months. He writes, “All meaningful change requires a genuine surrender. Yet, to surrender does not simply mean to give up; more to give up one’s usual self and allow something other to enter and redeem the lesser sense of self. In surrendering, we fall to the bottom of our arguments and seek to touch the origin of our lives again. Only then can we see as we were meant to see, from the depth of the psyche where the genius resides, where the seeds of wisdom and purpose were planted before we were born.” (The quote is from Meade’s book Fate and Destiny, the Two Agreements of the Soul.)

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In addition to my career as a horoscope columnist, I have written novels and other books. I have worked as a singer-songwriter in rock bands and performed a one-person show in theaters. As I survey my history, I always break into sardonic laughter as I contemplate how many businesspeople have advised me, “First, you’ve got to sell out. You’ve got to dumb down your creative efforts so as to make yourself salable. Only later, after you have become successful, can you afford to be true to your deepest artistic principles.” I am very glad I never heeded that terrible counsel, because it would have made me insane and unhappy. How are you doing with this central problem of human life, Aquarius? Are you serving the gods of making money or the gods of doing what you love? The coming year will, I suspect, bring you prime opportunities to emphasize the latter goal.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): I’ve chosen a sweet taste of advice for you to keep referring back to in 2023. It’s in rapt alignment with upcoming astrological omens. I suggest you copy my counsel out in longhand on a piece of paper and keep it in your wallet or under your pillow. Here it is, courtesy of author Martha Beck: “The important thing is to tell yourself a life story in which you, the hero, are primarily a problem solver rather than a helpless victim. This is well within your power, whatever fate might have dealt you.”
