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!

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! :)

day-19-voting-square---frog-and-peachToday is Day 19 of 25 Days of SLO Digital Adventure through San Luis Obispo with me, The Leesh!

Today, we are rolling out with our glasses in our hands, because it’s Pint Night! Does it feel like the weekend is just too far away? Then shimmy on down to Frog and Peach for some $1 beers to make the work week a little shorter! Yes… I just said $1! All you have to do is bring your Frog pint glass (or purchase one for $5) and you can get Coors Light and Bud Light for $1… in addition to other drink specials throughout the night.

And, they also have live bands playing all the time! I would call to make sure, but Pint night is usually super fun with some sweet tunes.  If you are like me, you will want to dance, which is perfect because there is a nice little dance floor in front of the stage.

Pint Night starts at 7pm, but doesn’t get too busy until around 9pm. For more info and directions go here!

Cheers!

Snack Attack at Franks- 25 Days of SLOToday is Day 17 of 25 Days of SLO Digital Adventure through San Luis Obispo with me, The Leesh!

Today, we are in search of the perfect snack and all my senses and my tummy are telling me to go to Frank’s Famous Hot Dogs. Ironically enough, my favorite thing at Frank’s is their mini burgers (especially on Mondays when they are 99 cents all day!) paired with a chocolate shake. But the hot dogs are, of course, amazing as well. They have every kind of hot dog you can think of: the original Frank Dog, cheese dog, kraut dog, chili cheese dog, mexican dog, bbq dog and the seriously amazing bacon dog… and the list goes on!

Frank’s has been a SLO staple since the seventies and is still as popular as ever. If you are feeling particularly brave, you should try your luck at the Mini Burger Challenge… if you can eat 10 mini burgers in a single sitting, you get a shirt and your photo on the legendary wall of fame!

The other neat thing about Frank’s is that they are open seven days a week from 6:30am to 9pm… and their breakfast menu is pretty legit. So come with your appetite and bring friends, you will not leave hungry. :) Full Menu and Location is here!
