Happy Monday everyone! It’s definitely seeming more and more like summer here everyday: cold and foggy in the morning and sunny and beautiful in the afternoon!
Last Tuesday, Jeff and I went out to celebrate the successful defense of his master’s thesis–woohoo! For me, it was an excuse to head out to one of my favorite beachy happy hour spots–Marisol at The Cliff’s. The Cliff’s is a hotel/restaurant combo right on the bluffs in Pismo Beach. They have a gorgeous outdoor patio with panoramic ocean views–if you can forget that you have to wear a sweater, you can almost imagine you’re in Hawaii!
The Cliffs is the place to go for island/boat drinks and not surprisingly, is often voted “Best Place to Drink Like Jimmy Buffett” in the New Time’s annual Best of SLO competition. So in true island spirit, I ordered myself a margarita:
And then a lava flow… It was a celebration after all!
Lava flows are hands down my favorite island drink–creamy pina colada mixed with strawberries–delicious!
During happy on Tuesdays, they also host their famous free taco bar–yep, you read that right–free! This was actually our first time ever making it for the taco bar. Once you purchased a drink, you had unlimited access to the chips and salsa and build your own tacos.
The ingredients were pretty basic, but it was free, so I can’t complain too much!
So if you’re ever looking for that island feel in the middle of the central coast, The Cliffs is definitely the place to be! You can find more information about the hotel and their restaurant here.
