Golf in SLOToday is Day 24 of the 25 Days of SLO Digital Adventure through San Luis Obispo with me, The Leesh!

There is ONLY 2 more days left!!

Today, we are hitting the links in SLO. Now, I am personally not a golfer. I enjoy the driving range and about four holes, but then I am done. But that doesn’t mean I can’t highlight some of the amazing courses in SLO.

There are some spectacular courses all over the county including the Avila Beach Golf Resort if you want some spectacular ocean views. Sea Pines Golf Resort is another awesome course in Los Osos. Dairy Creek Golf Course is also a great course with student specials and late in the day discounts. And for the closest course to town, Laguna Lake is where my husband enjoys to play a round or two.

No matter where you go, you will be surrounded by the beauty that is SLO. In my picture above is the Los Osos course, Sea Pines, where it can get fogged in from time to time, as you can see, so make sure to bring a jacket. Enjoy!

Bubble Gum Alley!Today is Day 22 of the 25 Days of SLO Digital Adventure through San Luis Obispo with me, The Leesh! ONLY 4 more days left people!!

Today we need to pay a visit to the grossest part of San Luis Obispo. I know, I know! It doesn’t sound like fun to be grossed out, but seriously… you have to at least visit it once to say that you have done it!

Bubble Gum alley started way back in the 70′s and has been gathering germs ever since. The history behind why the wall started is somewhat mythical and different people have different versions of the stories. It has also been said that it has been completely cleaned off twice, but has keeps “re-surfacing”. And it is stronger and thicker than ever.. with almost five inches of gooey goodness.

As a freshman at Cal Poly, my WOW group joined in on the gummy fun and put our group number as high up on the wall as we possibly could by climbing on top of each other. We were making memories people and that is one memory that will always “stick” with me! How will you make your mark on the wall? Get creative! Let me know how you made you mark! :)

Here is a link to a video from the Wall Street Journal that shows you just what I am talking about. Enjoy!

Valentine's Day at Ciopinot!Today is Day 21 of the 25 Days of SLO Digital Adventure through San Luis Obispo with me, The Leesh!

Today also happens to be Valentine’s Day!  So if you have a special someone (or even if you don’t) I highly suggest that you take a girlfriend or best bud out to Ciopinot. Ciopinot has a special place in my heart. I have shared many happy occasions there over the years including birthdays, graduations and even went there after my (now) husband proposed to celebrate our engagement!

Ciopinot is not only an awesome spot, with great ambiance, spectacular food and world class service, it has some of the friendliest people around! Leonard, the owner, is always at the front, greeting you with a smile. My other favorite thing about Ciopinot is if you bring a local bottle of wine, there is no corkage fee! They also have an extensive selection of wines from around the world and spectacular cocktails. And if oysters are your thing, they have a fresh oyster bar as well!

If you want to know my favorite thing to order.. it’s the crab cakes, followed by the Greek Calamari and Scallops with the mashed potatoes and topped off with the butterfinger ice cream pie! My mouth is watering right now thinking about it. But you have to go to see for you self! Let me know how it goes for you :) Here is link to their website for the full menu!

Enjoy and happy Valentine’s Day!!

day-20-voting-square--SLO-marathon Today is Day 20 of the 25 Days of SLO Digital Adventure through San Luis Obispo with me, The Leesh!

Today is the day we get serious about training for the SLO Marathon and Half Marathon. Last year, I ran in the inaugural race completing my second ever half marathon. It was an amazing race, with perfect weather conditions (cool and misty, but not too cold) as well as the best scenery to match. If you think shopping downtown is cool, try running down Higuera st. with thousands of your closest running buddies right past your favorite restaurants and shops. Then you weave your way in and out of the vineyards through Edna Valley and end up right at the historical Madonna Inn for some after party shenanigans.

If you are a runner, or feel like you want to be, they have a 5k, a half marathon and a full marathon that is amazing. And new this year there is a kids race as well. For more information and to register click here.

So dust of your running shoes, it is time to train to be ready for April 7th!! It is going to be great! I will be there sporting my new shoes! :)
