Winds of Change

As the New Year takes root in Los Gatos I find the winds of change are all around us.

Our community is transforming right before our very eyes; it makes me wonder what’s to come in 2016 and beyond. I’m always ready for an adventure, so let’s kick off this year with a super issue.
With the Super Bowl coming to the South Bay in a few weeks, we capture the spirit of the game in a candid interview with local resident, ex-Niners coach-turned-NFL analyst Steve Mariucci. Coach Mariucci has dedicated his life to the love of the game and giving back to those less fortunate; he’s truly a gem of a man. We thank Michael Jacobi for his insightful interview with Mooch; we know you’ll appreciate Jacobi’s colorful commentary.

We then turn to a different game with a look at the changing landscape of business in Los Gatos. When Netflix moved into its new headquarters last year it vacated its old digs. This year Roku is moving into the space vacated by Netflix, solidifying the town’s position as the streaming entertainment capital of the world.

From digital bytes to another creative medium, we explore the Art of Levi’s Stadium at JCO’s Place for Fine Art. Several of the artists featured at Levi’s Stadium are participating in a show that opens this month in Los Gatos: The Art of the NFL: Super Bowl 50, with a portion of the proceeds from the show going to charity. In conjunction with the art of the game, “The Catch” of this issue is celebrated ex-49er great Dwight Clark, who goes deep to help those in need.

Speaking of those in need, we’d like to thank the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce, participating town merchants, local residents and Sweeney, Mason, Wilson and Bosomworth for supporting Los Gatos Magazine’s annual Thanks for Giving Week food drive. More than 5,000 meals were collected for the needy this past holiday season; Thanks for Giving!

Now that we’ve stocked the pantry, we head to the kitchen to see what’s on the menu for the Big Game and sip on some wonderful winter wines. Lastly we take a trip to a luxurious Hawaiian paradise, the Disney Aulani Resort. It’s a magical destination.
