PASS THE POTATOES, PLEASE
Next week, Thanksgiving tables will be set with roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie. Ever wonder why? We asked local food writer Jaime Lewis to dish up the stories behind the fare we take for granted when we sit down to give gratitude.
PACKING A SUITCASE FOR MARS
Wall-E and Eve – two briefcase-sized satellites – are set to fly by Mars on a NASA mission Nov. 26. Their 250 million-mile trip started earlier this year at Cal Poly, where they were tested and prepped. Justin Carnahan, a Tyvak engineer who worked on the project, will tell us more about their historic journey.
FIRST-TIMER FOR THE WIN
The newest member of San Luis Obispo’s City Council is a long-time city resident, community volunteer and respected professional. She’s also the first person of color to join the council. We invited Erica Stewart to share her experience as a first-time candidate and what she hopes to bring to the office.
BETTING ON BRICK AND MORTAR
On top of Turkey Day, next week also marks the start of the holiday shopping season. For many retailers, the next six weeks mean make it or break it for the year. To get a snapshot of the holiday shopping picture for local shopkeepers, we turned to Jules DeRocher, who recently opened a second store in downtown SLO.
MOVE OVER HYGGE, SISU’S IN THE HOUSE
You may have heard of hygge, the Danish embrace of all thing cozy, but how about sisu? This Finnish code of persistence and grit was ingrained in Paso Robles winemaker Kevin Jussila from birth, so we asked him to explain the concept and how we can all get a little more sisu in our lives.
SPREADING WINGS IN PISMO’S BUTTERFLY GARDEN
Each year around this time, thousands of Monarch butterflies make their way to the same Eucalyptus grove in Pismo Beach to spend the winter. We invited butterfly guru Cheryl Powers to share some lesser-known facts about these fascinating creatures and their local habitat.
SINGING IN THE NEW YEAR
Hometown jazz chanteuse Inga Swearingen has her New Year’s Eve all planned out. She’ll be at the PAC along with other local favorites as part of Michael Nowak & Orchestra Novo’s celebration of the changing calendar. Tuesday, she’ll be on stage at Good Morning SLO giving us a taste of what’s to come.
