Savor the “SLO” Summer

Last weekend, I aggressively sought to escape the miserable San Francisco fog, so I ventured to San Luis Obispo: the happiest place in America. Seriously.

The plan was simple: visit one of my best college friends and do nothing but relax in the sunshine. That was the only requirement. San Luis Obispo (SLO) is very near to my heart, as I went to Cal Poly and essentially was on vacation every day (learn by doing). If you ever get the chance to visit, you may find it hard to leave. We had the most relaxing weekend, complete with coastal exploring, backyard BBQs, and bocce ball.

With Labor Day weekend around the corner, I figured I’d entice you to enjoy the outdoors, relax, and celebrate life with your favorite people. Savor the summer before it’s over.

Backyard BBQ Menu

Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad with Fresh Mozzarella, Balsamic Glaze, and freshly picked Basil

Assorted Grilled Gourmet Sausages (Spicy Chorizo, Cinnamon Chicken Apple, and Lamb Paprika)

Smoked Tri Tip

Marinated Grilled Summer Squash
