Great Flavors lets you know about upcoming events that sound especially tasty, and the Flavor Team provides reviews of select happenings. From the local favorites (SLO Farmer's Market anyone?) to the quiet gems and unusual happenings up and down the Central Coast, we're your source for outings that fill your life with great flavors.
If you can pry yourself away from Pismo Beach, an alfresco dinner, Bishop’s Peak, or wine tasting, there are even more things to experience as part of your great-flavored life here on the Central Coast.
The Flavor Team spotlights upcoming events and shares reviews of select outings. We share the funky and the formal (wear a suit or dress…with flip-flops), the annual favorites and the new fun kids in town. So many options makes it easy to add great flavors to your calendar.
