Last chance to dance: The Village of Arroyo Grande is a primo spot to grab a bite to eat (Mason Bar for cocktails and dinner, Comfort Market for a quick picnic lunch, Planted Eatery for amazing healthy snacks and juices), but did you know this quaint hamlet is also ground zero for laid-back community hangouts every year? Don't miss the end of Arroyo Grande's epic summer concert series, featuring live swing sounds by The Starlight Dreamband Aug. 27) ... Hot soup! Grover Beach's annual Stone Soup Music Festival and Street Faire will kick off this Aug. 28 at Ramona Garden Park, and this year promises to be a doozie. Gear up for a Mardi Paws Dog Parade (yes, that's dogs in cute costumes), musical performers (including '80s giants Great White), and lots of delicious food vendors patronize (go to aggbchamber.com for more info).
