Another nice pub with good food and good drinks. Most of the bars in SLO serve food during the day, and most of it is pretty darn tasty. And Mother's (now called "Mo-Tav" is no exception.

Sightseeing

Historic Mission founded in 1772. Even if you aren't much into missions, the plaza is beautiful and is a fun place to sit on the grass and chat. Luna Red is right next by for a glass of wine!

Everything Else

A must-see when visiting SLO. 15ft (4.6 m) high and 70ft (21 m) long alley lined with chewed gum left by passers-by. Believed to have started as early as WWII. Sounds gross, but totally worth it.
