Guac around the clock!

Who doesn't like avocados and margaritas? This refreshing and satisfying combination of creamy and cold is pretty much the unofficial meal of "the California dream," where waves shimmer and shoes are never required. If you live on the Central Coast, ripe avocados are your birthright, OK? Claim your scoop of the dip and gather at the annual AvoMarg Festival kicking off at the Morro Bay Embarcadero this Saturday, Sept. 9. Wear your sunscreen and prepare for a delicious day filled with live music (The Mighty Croon Dogs, Ricky Montijo, Lulu and the Cowtippers, and more), kids' activities (face painting, mini avocado toss, drum line session, cornhole), and a whole area dedicated to elevating the humble avocado to new foodie heights! Most importantly, lets salute our local avocado growers who (as we can all agree) do an extremely important job.

Saturday, Sept. 9, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Morro Bay Embarcadero; avomargfest.com. Δ
