Lido wine tastingIt doesn’t get better than this.  Beautiful blue skies reflected onto calm blue Pacific, the cliff’s edge just yards away with pelicans cruising the coast – and glasses of smooth merlot, tangy pinot noir and crisp Chardonnay from local San Luis Obispo wineries.

Lido party Eight bucks gets you all these pleasures every Tuesday starting at 5:30. No tourists here – you need to be a local to know about this quasi-private party. You can even catch the mayor of Pismo Beach enjoying what her constituents have to offer.  Tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. (Mayor Maryann Reiss is seated on right above.)

There’s valet parking and ample self-parking.  Exit 101 at Spyglass and go north a short block on Shell Beach Road.  Driveway entrance on ocean side.
