iver Oaks H o t Springs Spa has been a gathering place and a source of rejuvenation and relaxation for many years. Throughout our wide variety of services offered, guests can restore balance and bring peace to their mind, body and spirit. Whether it’s soaking in our artesian thermal mineral springs under the starlit sky, or relaxing in the shade of a private open-air spa, you will be reborn in the opulence of nature in a tasteful, uncluttered environment. The dramatic views of Paso Robles’ rolling hills and vineyards, the reflective lake, and of course, our magnificent artesian thermal mineral waters are the true luxuries of River Oaks Hot Springs Spa. Situated in the midst of California’s Central Coast rolling hills and vineyards, Paso Robles has been renowned for thermal artesian thermal spring waters. The Salinan Indians, the most historical inhabitants of the area, knew this area as “The Springs” and found relief from various ailments in the therapeutic waters. Mineral springs throughout the world are unique in their mineral composition and healing properties, and the waters at River Oaks Hot Springs Spa are no different. Our water is rich in naturally occurring sulfur compounds and trace minerals which can ease joint pain, arthritis, and other physical ailments*. Hydrogen sulfide gas (responsible for the aroma) is a powerful antibacterial agent, stimulating to the body’s mucus membranes, soothing to the respiratory system and calming to the skin. Heated in Earth’s fissures, our natural artesian thermal water emerges at 117 degrees, rich with healing, restorative minerals. The warmer the water, the greater the mineral content and our mineral water is among the best in the area. Pure and rich, it is yours to enjoy at River Oaks Hot Springs Spa.

River Oaks Hot Springs Spa has an exceptional selection of body treatments and tailored skin care with a focus on rejuvenation. Experiencing any of our Massage, Face or Skin Therapies, Wraps & Glows includes the added experience of 30 minutes in one of our artesian thermal mineral tubs.

P

ismo Pat creates brand inspired by daughter’s poem in the fall of 2008. Longtime Pismo Beach Realtor Pat McCann, a.k.a. Pismo Pat, was re-reading his daughter Allie’s 2004 school poem, Pismo Paradise. The poem, which utilized personification and captured the essentials of beach life in Pismo Beach from a 12 year olds perspective, became the inspiration for the creation of Pismodise.

munities. It’s a beach lifestyle filled with moments spent enjoying the beautiful coastal scenery, laid back moments, fun, laughter, and living life to its fullest. The first product line had two shirts, a cap, bumper sticker and postcard. Before long, the word Pismodise was being used by locals and tourists alike as a new way to describe the Pismo Beach area, with the apparel becoming a way to show Pismo pride.

Noting that locals and tourists commonly used the word paradise in their daily description of Pismo Beach, Pismo Pat combined the two words of the poem’s title into one new descriptive word – Pismodise. Friends jumped in to help, a Pismodise LLC was formed, two registered trademarks were granted and, to build interest and a brand, the group started a small apparel/accessories company bearing the Pismodise name and logo.

Currently, Pismodise offers over 40 products with the brand name and logos including Pismodise wines, produced by Gary and Teresa Burk of Costa de Oro Winery in Santa Maria. The Pismodise Pinot Grigio is a white wine that truly captures the Pismo lifestyle. Clean and refreshing, with beautiful stone fruit aromas, this Pinot Grigio has become a local favorite. The Pismodise Sunset Red wine is a delicious blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon , Syrah and Petite Syrah. The grapes were sourced from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard on the eastern-most edge of Santa Barbara County. Sunset Red has blackberry/ boysenberry/black cherry fruit with pepper

Pismodise is much more than just an apparel company; it’s evolved as a timeless phrase that describes the beauty and magic of Pismo Beach and her surrounding com-

and leather notes and the palate is full with a lengthy finish of fruit and spice. Pismodise wines are the house wines for the Pismo Beach Splash Cafe!

When thinking about the future of Pismodise, Pismo Pat reflects on the meaning behind the brand he helped to create, saying the word itself has become synonymous with Pismo Beach, and evokes “the feeling of living in paradise.” “With a local, national and international clientele, Pismodise just may become the most sought-after travel destination in California,” he says. “An apparel company, a descriptive name, a memorable coastal vacation area – we have it all in Pismodise.” For more information on Pismodise, visit www.pismodise.com or contact Pismo Pat McCann at (805) 710-0263 or pismopat805@aol. com.

- Avila Beach Paddlesports - / Stand up Paddling/Kayaking. My favorite place to go on a stand up paddleboard in Avila is the Avila Lighthouse. It’s a pretty short trip, and there is a small beach on which you can place your kayak or paddleboard while exploring the lighthouse. 805-7046902 avilabeachpaddlesports.com —Jessica - Bay Cruisers-Lost Isle Adventure Tours - Bay CruisersLost Isle Adventure Tours is a chance to get out on the harbor waters, take a close –up look at the amazing sea lion dock, and dip your toes in the sand on the Sandspit. The Lost Isle is a pontoon “Tiki” boat with a full bar and Capt. Sarge at the helm. Hear him tell of the history of the bay while enjoying his famous Mai-Tai and Leaky Tiki. Or take the helm yourself, with up to eight adults, on a Bay Cruiser electric boat. You can bring your own food and drinks along, pets too. And after the cruise, check out the Tiki Port Store filled with Polynesian and tiki items. Tiki boat leaves hourly; call (805) 771-9337 to reserve an electric boat. ATM, beer and wine to-go. See: www.baycruisers.com. —Neil - Pismo/Oceano Dunes - My favorite outdoorsy thing to do is go ‘glamping’ at Pismo Dunes! You can tent camp or trailer camp (my preference), right on the beach as well as take your off-road toys out in the dunes for some serious adrenaline rushing fun! If you don’t have your own toys, you can rent them there. This activity is a favorite of locals and visitors alike! —Michelle - Valencia Peak Trail - If you enjoy hiking, Valencia peak is a must! It is a bit of work to reach the top, but once you do the 360-degree views of the ocean shoreline, inland peaks, and Morro Rock are absolutely incredible! I recommend heading up just before sunset! At 1,347 feet in elevation, Valencia Peak is one of the highest summits in Montana de Oro. Accept the challenge and believe me your bum will thank you later! —Carrie

Staff Picks: - Off The Hook – the food is delicious and the sushi is creative. The owners usually are present and are quick to take care of you. —Lani - Fin’s Seafood Restaurant: Relaxing and family friendly atmosphere. The menu has great choices and offers specials for kids too. Every dish is cooked to perfection and as fresh as can be. The menu offers international & seasonal choices that are sooo good! If you’re lucky you might catch local musicians playing outside on the patio.  I wouldn’t be surprised if this was one of Jimmy Buffett’s “go to” stops while visiting Southern California.  Their happy hour it’s all week long starting at 4pm, just in time for a perfect ocean view sunset. The decor is fun and exciting for the kids and you can take some awesome family pics with their favorite Pirate mascot too. —Zorina - Roxanne’s Cafe - Outdoor garden setting, patio chairs, friendly service, cute cloth napkins and scrumptious food! My favorite little lunch spot is Roxanne’s Cafe. This quaint vegetarian café is located in the courtyard of Smiling Dog Yoga and serves fresh, locally grown, mostly organic dishes that are full of flavor and unique ingredients. The menu changes seasonally and there are always yummy dessert options to choose from! Roxanne’s is open for lunch (11am-3pm) and is closed on Sundays. I love to meet friends here for lunch, relax and enjoy fresh pressed juice or a smoothie, kombucha or tea... I’ve been keeping this place my little secret until now! —Michelle - SLO Brew - The food and beer is great, the servers and bartenders are always friendly, and there is always a great show to look forward to. If we are hungry, thirsty, or just want something to do we usually find the solution here! —Kelley - Thai Boat - Not only do they serve some of the best Thai food in town, but the service is amazing. The guys who work there are always so happy and greet everyone with a smile. You can tell that they genuinely care about their customers and the experience they have at their restaurant. I love this place! —Marisa

Staff Picks:

- Barrelhouse Brewing Co - My favorite place to go relax and have a beer is Barrelhouse Brewing Co. in Paso Robles. They have live music on Friday and Saturday nights with awesome food trucks if you get hungry. We enjoy playing corn hole or just sitting by the waterfall and listening to the music. If you love sour beer you have to check them out. —Dana S. - Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company - My favorite brewery is Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company in Arroyo Grande. The food is good, the beer is awesome, my kids love that they have root beer on draft, and I can enjoy a glass of wine! My husband and I originally happened upon Figueroa Mt.

- Art in the Park - Morro Bay: The best art I have seen has been at the Art in the Park events held in Morro Bay. The hold these events a few times of year, and I love the variety of art that is shown, and have never been disappointed. I also love the outdoor setting and that none of the artists seem to be haggling you to buy, buy, buy. It makes for a really enjoyable day! —Jessica - Seaside Gallery - This Seaside Gem in Pismo Beach is like Disneyland for the eyes & soul... Local aspiring talent as well as professional art from around the world is here for your enjoyment. The variety of artwork here is immense too...Alluring composition, textiles, composition abound. —Zorina

ada Mason has been what she calls a “Junker” for over 20 years. She owned her first store in Branson, Missouri where she lived for about 12 years. She started in a small house in the Historic District of Downtown Branson, where she incorporated a Tea Room with her small Antique Business. The rest as they say is History.... After leaving Missouri, she returned to her roots, Reno and the Lake Tahoe Area. Booth renting seemed to be the best thing to do, until she opened another store. She loves to repurpose and reuse old and vintage items. she taught herself to use woodworking tools rials. She is happy to share her knowledge In Reno her store “Vintage Chic” was a popu- and had a large part of her store disignated and ideas with her customers. Her clientel lar place. Coming from a family of DIY’ers, to repurposing and building using old mate- now comes to her for ideas and help on their own projects. Now you can find her at her store the Old Potting Bench at the west most end of the charming Arroyo Grande Village. Walking into the Old Potting Bench is like walking into the Disneyland of Home Decor shops. A wonderfully bright and inviting store which houses dreaminspired unique antiques and vintage eye candy that will delight you while captivating music allows one to peruse the aisles in joyous glee. Established first in Morro Bay, CA in March 2013, it was the demand from her loyal customers for even more quality furniture and hardto-get home decor items which prompted owner, Vada Mason, to move to a larger space in the Village of Arroyo Grande. continued on page 40 to play on the central coast

Since then, it’s been a favorite and required desitnation among locals and visiting vacationers, as the delightful displays seem to change almost daily. It certainly isn’t your typical antique store. A garden area filled with hardy succulents sits among quaint patio chairs and tables perfect for a cozy outdoor vignette. Large metal arbors and wall scrolls, vintage cane chairs, chalkpainted and natural wood tables, lovely dressers with unqiue embellishments and handles, primitive hutches, old doors and windows, vintage dishes, linens, decorative picture frames and mirrors, crystal vases, hand-made lotions and light fixtures are just some of the items

you might find at The Old Potting Bench if they haven’t already been snatched up. Rustic, shabby chic, farm, French country, western, you name the style, The Old Potting B e n c h probably has it or knows where to get it.

items gathered from many sources. Short of ideas or don’t know what to put where? Vada is happy to help make your home as inviting as she is passionate about making her store the best on the Central Coast. Possibly the most memorable part of visiting The Old Potting Bench is Marley, the store Shitzu mascot who loves welcoming visitors. The Old Potting Bench is open every day except Tuesdays and is located at 148 West Branch St., in Arroyo Grande. 805-481-1231.

Currently housing approximately four different vendors, The Old Potting Bench is an ecletic blend of specially hand-picked inspried
