The best way to find them, of course, is with a guide.
This guide. Avoid pitfalls and snares while searching
for quality local restaurants, businesses, and services.
New Times’ annual Best Of special publication,
assembled with input from readers across San Luis
Obispo County, presents the jewels and gems of the
Central Coast. Read the directions, follow the paths,
and reap your rewards.
Fuel your search with Dining Out, light your torch
and go out After Hours, let the Arts Scene
dazzle you, drop some coins with Burnin’ Money,
explore About Town, muscle up and Get Out when you need to, and be sure to keep a Community
Watch on what’s going on around you.
If you encounter Dana Lossing, a dancer with Civic
Ballet, in your travels, be sure to thank her. She’s the
intrepid adventurer scouring caves and scaling rock
walls throughout this issue.
Also, thank anyone you see who helped to make
this Best Of come together—and you’re included
in that category. Without you,
the untold wealth of San Luis Obispo
County would go untouched.
