No sweater required: The weather is feeling oh so spring-tastic, so strolling the downtown SLO Farmers Market is in order! Make sure you bring a reusable cup and straw and don't forget to stop by on the third Thursday of every month for info on discovering healthy living (meet with registered dietitians and get the chance to win a basket of produce). Check the farmers market schedule and see who's playing the live music stage at downtownslo.com ... The Distillery at Opolo Winery in Paso Robles offers up a few gold-winning spirits bursting with spring fruitiness. Stop by and try the award-winning apricot brandy, distilled from the fermented fruit itself. Yes, I did read your mind. There's absolutely no added flavorings to be had here (go to opolo.com/distilleryfor more info).
