I don't care when you were born. The '80s ruled! Hair-sprayed hard rockers Great White are the epitome of '80s excess, wouldn't you agree? Don't miss 'em at Grover Beach's annual Stone Soup Music Festival and Street Faire this Aug. 26 and 27 (they play Saturday, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.). While you're banging your head ever so gingerly (so as not to mess up your mane), you'll want to check out all the fine local vendors, crafters, and eateries on display during the fest. Talk about a hedonistic excess of yum! Sponsored by the Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach Chamber of Commerce, the festival takes its name from a folk tale about a stranger who pledged to feed a hungry town by making soup from a stone. You will not need to eat any stones to enjoy this event. But you must "rock" out. OK, you walked directly into that one!
