The perks of being a member at Presqu'ile just grew exponentially with the opening of their new tasting room in Santa Maria. Calling it a "tasting room" seems like an understatement, as it's really more like a getaway where you can hang out all day long on their terraced lawn, play bocce ball, foosball or cool off in the wine cave.
McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams recently opened a new store at 728 State Street (formerly Java Jones), so we stopped in on a warm summer afternoon to check out their new spot. They have a wide array of unique flavors, sundaes and hot-off-the-oven ice cream sandwiches! I had one of the seasonal offerings, Summer Peach, and it hit the spot! The new ice cream parlor is a great addition to State Street.
