The beer craftsmen at Pismo Brewing Company slake thirst with a rotating array of six craft beers brewed in-house. In the tasting room, which is open seven days a week, bartenders pour pints of Pismo pale ale and the toasty, caramel-tinged Roadster red ale, complemented by a smattering of pub fare. Root beer is also available to fertilize the tubers of underage youngsters. The brewery's selection of logo-emblazoned T-shirts, hats, and sweatshirts displays affinity for craft brews and implicit disdain for lesser beverages, such as horse tears. Occasionally on Friday nights, the bass rumblings from live musical performances send ripples through pints of cool brews.

Natural sunlight floods the interior of Shell Beach Salon & Spa, helping to create the illusion of a seaside resort. Even so, guests might notice a conspicuous absence of sand and sharp seashells as they make their way past stylists clipping and coloring hair at six stations. The spa’s aestheticians nixed those skin-damaging elements of decor, and their passion for healthy skin also compels them to cleanse and hydrate complexions with professional GlyMed products. Whether you choose to indulge in a facial, a mani-pedi, or one of nine massages, the spa’s private rooms ensure a relaxing session.

At Blacklake Golf Resort, players can choose any combination of challenges from three distinct nine-hole courses, each representing a unique feature of playing golf within the varied landscape of the Central Coast. Sea breezes drift up from the valley to the Canyons course's elevated tee boxes. The Oaks course ventures away from the clubhouse to wind through a forest of towering oak trees, its undulating grass and smooth walkways shaded by the abundant branches of those mighty oaks. To begin the Lakes course, a short, 143-yard hole heralds the inviting nature of the compact layout and wide fairways, all before a monstrous 573-yard par 5 finishes the round.

Open from dawn to dusk, Blacklake Golf Resort also features practice facilities, including a 275-yard driving range and two putting, chipping, and pitching greens on which to improve your techniques. During lessons, the staff (http://blacklake.com/staff/) of PGA professionals works to improve players' fundamentals without sacrificing the fun, relaxing nature of the sport.

Course at a Glance:

* Three nine-hole courses (par 36, 36, and 35)

* Total yardages from the back tees: 3,276, 3,125, and 2,909

* Three sets of tees per hole

When it first opened in 1979, La Salsa Fresh Mexican Grill was a simple taqueria in Los Angeles. Its open kitchen gave patrons a front-row seat to watch chefs transform fresh ingredients into bold, memorable Mexican dishes. Today, the original concept has evolved into a booming franchise, but each location works on the same principle: add a modern twist to classic Mexican food. Chefs continue to work in an open-kitchen environment where they concoct seven types of homemade salsas?laced with ingredients such as fire-roasted roma tomatoes, cilantro and garlic, and even mango?to complement carne asada tacos, Los Cabos shrimp burritos, and hefty bowls packed with chicken, fire-roasted veggies, and plenty of cheese. The kitchen crew also assembles large breakfasts of eggs and chorizo, as well as huevos rancheros for early risers.
