David Quintana, the lobbyist who first organized the bash 13 years ago, said he originally conceived of it as a way to do something fun for young staff members. It has since grown to become one of the Capitol’s main social events of the year — timed to the beginning of the legislative session to foster professional camaraderie before the inevitable showdowns that come with politics. “Very soon the whole environment we’re involved in devolves into one of partisanship and fighting over bills,” said Quintana, a lobbyist whose clients have included Indian tribes and electronic cigarette companies. “Why not give people one opportunity to have fun?”.

Holm was hired by La Vie Parisienne, and later by the Persian Room at the Plaza Hotel to sing to their late-night supper club audiences after the “Oklahoma!” curtain fell. The slender, blue-eyed blonde moved west to pursue a film career. “Hollywood is a good place to learn how to eat a salad without smearing your lipstick,” she would say. “Oscar Hammerstein told me, ‘You won’t like it,'” and he was right, she said.

Or strike out on your own historic walking tour, starting from the Esplanade, where the Six Sisters still stand, gazing out to sea. Imagine the scene: carriages, parasols and knee-length bathing costumes. The Venetian Hotel and its signature pastel-hued bungalows, built in the 1920s, stand at the western end of the beach, just across Soquel Creek, but we’re heading to the east, up the steep staircase — 86 steps! — to Depot Hill. There’s a trail at the top, which offers beautiful views of the city below and the ocean beyond, but it’s the historic houses, built between 1886 and 1910, that are the primary draw. Many sport blue, oval landmark plaques guiding you to, for example, the blue Lenzen house on Cliff Avenue, built in 1890 and later the home of Baseball Hall of Famer Harry Hooper; St. John’s Episcopal Church, which was founded by several local families, including Donner Party survivor Patty Reed’s family; and the original railroad depot, which is now the luxurious Inn at Depot Hill.
