Farmers Markets: Offering Local Fare and Fun!

farmer_market_savor

  Growing up on the Central Coast one of my favorite things to do was to go to the local farmers markets. Where else can you sample cuisine from multiple local restaurants, listen to a variety of local musicians, and get your grocery shopping done all in one place? Make it a family or friend’s…

I recently had a large hardscape project in mind on my property on the outskirts of Arroyo Grande and I was looking to give the opportunity to a local company.  Our new barn needed a driveway that would accommodate a fire truck if needed.  Hacienda Landscaping did an amazing and thorough job, including retaining walls,…

It’s the time of the year again, when we get cozy and warm inside our homes and the furnace keeps the cold winter air away. If you’re one of those who went to turn on the heat only to find your furnace is on winter vacation then I suggest you give Cochran Family Plumbing & Heating a…

Spoon Trade – An American Eatry

tst_logo

Grover Beach and fine dining are not typically mentioned in the same sentence – in fact in our history on the Central Coast those words have never been paired. We are happy to report that Grover’s culinary history has been upgraded with a new eatery. Owners Jacob and Brook Town, and Patrick Bergseid have made…

Spring Food Drive Benefits SLO Food Bank

foodbanklogo

We live in a fairly idyllic place — fantastic climate, next to the ocean, wonderful in almost every aspect. What may not be readily apparent is that 44,000 of our neighbors are struggling to feed themselves or their children. And so it is with that thought in mind that Keller Williams establishes an annual goal…

However a good Village works together laying the essential groundwork beforehand to make that escrow process go smoothly. In that regard we are a team and we are working on a common goal.…

Jones Janitorial

My family has known Dan Jones for as long as I can remember … the unassuming name of this family company — Jones Janitorial and Carpet Cleaning — downplays how well they do what they do. They are carpet and tile cleaning magicians! I knew Dan was great when I was new to real estate…

Sister Kitchen Thai Food in Grover Beach

There aren’t many restaurants that take a break during the holidays and go on holiday themselves… and there aren’t many restaurants that when they do take a break make my grown husband cry. It was so bad I even drove by during their break once to make sure they hadn’t returned early. This is what…

Doughboy’s Pizzeria in Grover Beach

Growing up on the Central Coast, we’ve had our share of Pizza Places come and go … but in the past few years there hadn’t really been one that stood out from the crowd. Then one night when Gather Wine Bar was just getting started — maybe even during her “Soft Opening” — Kari ordered…

Salon & Spa Services – Grover Beach

When Tutta Bella Salon opened it’s doors in our area I couldn’t believe my eyes… it was a salon like those I had enjoyed living in Newport Beach during my ten years away from the Central Coast. I gave that type of full service salon with spa-like atmosphere up when I decided to return —…

Best Sandwiches in Grover Beach

If you don’t know what “show us your stacked” means, then you obviously haven’t sampled the scrumptious handcrafted sandwiches at this South County gem. I heard the rumors a few years ago that the “best” sandwiches were at Stacked. When I finally made it in, I fell in love! I have a tendency to always…

My dad has always marveled at the wealth of knowledge found in the Miner’s staff. Men and women who seem to have every washer, nut, bolt and…

Home Decor and Nursery – Grover Beach

Ron’s Nursery is aptly named after it’s owner, Ron Carlock. This man is the human definition of why I love living and owning a small business here on the Central Coast. You will notice that many of my Yelps revolve around Customer Service. I believe that in many cases, great customer service is under-valued and…

Amazing Floral Design in Grover Beach

I first discovered Amanda by seeing her designs at the Dolphin Bay Resort … but did not really understand the full scope of her talent until I saw her beautiful arrangements for a charitable event that I attended. I was so in love with one of her donated arrangements that I ended up bidding on…

Fin’s Seafood Resaurant in Pismo Beach

In Grover Beach, what folks must keep in mind when heading to Fin’s is that it’s a family restaurant with a seafood focus — It’s on the sand, folks, at the entrance to the beach at the bottom of Grand Ave. So, if you don’t like seafood or families, I would choose another restaurant! That…
