$100 hamburger

I used to fly to SBA for the $100 hamburger in my timebuilding days.

Is the Elephant Bar still there at the airport. That was always pretty cool.

The beach is just off the short parallels.

It's been years, sorry I can't offer more recent gouge. Good looking girls? Seems like you can't go wrong.

Good looking with great attitude? Now we're talking slim pickin's.

Good luck. :cool:

The Beachside cafe is a nice stop. Can walk from the airport.

State street is a good place to visit if you are looking to meet people. Some ok restarants and bars there.

Woodstock's Pizza in Isla Vista (I.V.). Some of the best around.

School's almost in now too so look out for the students - there'll be THOUSANDS of UCSB'ers milling around I.V.

Back in high school, my buddies and I used to fly to SBA just to eat at the Elephant Bar and stare at the UCSB sorority sluts that work there.

I agree with PC12 - bring back some pics!

State Street is where the action is. Lot's of bars and restaurants on a strip that ends at the beach.

I'm a Santa Barbara local.

The airport isn't actually in Santa Barbara, it's in Goleta which is 20 miles or so from downtown Santa Barbara. DO NOT TAKE A CAB! It's ~$80 roundtrip from KSBA to downtown and back.

Since you're only there for 24hrs.; rent a car and drive to State Street. You can park in any of the numerous city lots. Wear your walking shoes. Park near the water and walk to the end of Stearns Warf (big wooden pier at the base of State Street). Then head up State Street. You can spend ALL DAY walking around this area. Santa Barbara is second only to Manhattan in number of restaurants per square mile.

Just a couple ideas:
Lunch: Fish Tacos at the Natural Cafe. It's at 508 State Street (5 blocks up from the beach).

Dinner: What kind of per-diem are you on? Check out the Palace Cafe. From The Natural Cafe, walk up one block to Cota St. and turn right. It's better than any Cajun food I've ever had in Louisiana. If that's too pricey turn back to State and go to Joe's Cafe.

I'd steer clear of UCSB and Isla Vista. The University of Casual Sex and Booze is my alma mater. Downtown is a lot more fun.

Maybe I'll bump into you guys. I'll be the super-tan, long-haired, sweaty guy on roller skates wearing little cut-off levi's shorts with giant headphones and a parrot on my shoulder.:D

Great. Im flying with a 50+ year old captain (you know the drill >> 3 ex wifes) so, I'll be heading downtown myself to se those UCSB chicks.. He doesn't want to get in trouble.

Ill see if I can make some pics. Maybe I'll show them to ya, or I'll try to sell my pics to Girls going wild.

So where is that elephant bar? and where are most UCSB chicks?

(per diem: 50 bucks a day within the US)

The Elephant Bar

If it's still there...it was practically on the airport.

Man, my memory is gettin' bad but it seems I used to just walk over there from the FBO.

Cheers!

Thank you sir.

I will however have to go to the hotel first to get rid of the monkey uniform.

If the ride isn't to bad, ill just go back to the airport.

Back in the day, you'd just tell ground you were headed to the Elephant Bar, and you'd taxi right up to it. That was 10 years ago though, it might have changed.
