Some how last night San Luis Obispo, California came up in conversation. There are so many things about good ole’ SLO town that I will always love and miss after 6 year stint their for college + being a young professional. I still have many friends and designer-ly friends there, plus my parents still own the house I lived for all but my first two years. I have so many fun memories, but the thing I think of first is SANDWICHES. Ok, weird to you probably, but I now live where there is ONE, only ONE good sandwich shop in town and it is only open on weekdays. There is another one but its 40 minutes away, however it is always worth the drive to PDQ. San Luis Obispo is the land of fabulous sandos. Yum!
Honestly, I have been thinking of visiting for all the great food there, to see some awesome peeps and inhale many sandwiches! Favorite notable sandwich shops…
1. High Street Deli
( Cal Turkey, duh!)
(Make your own, always love that they have sprouts and cucumber.)
3. Lincoln Market & Deli
(The Tassajara Delight is a must! The HJ sauce… Yum!)
4. Gourmet Deli at Old Edna
(Turkey & Cranberry sauce… sooo good!)
5. Ben Franklin’s
(A childhood favorite. We always got a sando from here on the way home from Grandma’s in Santa Maria. Not everyone’s favorite, but I love the mountains of lettuce they put on their subs!)
So that is my list. I can’t wait to visit hopefully in the near future!
Lastly, a fun link, oldie but a goodie: Scanwiches
Mr. Robot and his Love Bug.
Don’t ask me how I came up with this one… but, I will say it’s inspired by two lovely people. One of which has signed up for the Wandering Poste mailing list. They are very fun loving, slightly dorky, but awesome people.
Anyways, just a little fun with a Robot and a lady bug. I am very happy with how it turned out, so they might just have to make another appearance down the road.
Congratulations to my designer in crime, Mr. Daniel Triassi!
Danny graduates tomorrow, Saturday, June 10 from California Polytechnic State University! I am so proud of Danny for working hard and pumping out some fabulous work in his last few months of college. He has grown so much as a designer in the short time I have known him and is well rounded with his fabulous writing skills!
Danny and I met a couple years ago, when he had tracked me down to talk about the “Unconventional Oddities,” which was my senior project at Cal Poly. We bonded instantly talking about design, Schwinn bicycles and style. Since then we have talked constantly, sharing ideas, critiquing work and hopefully will be attending a rescheduled Adele concert soon. I could talk for hours about this kid, but in the end it is all summed up by saying I am so proud and can’t wait to see all the work you produce in the future!
Happy graduation day and happy moving home to lovely San Francisco!
PS: If you are attending graduation from Cal Poly this year, get Danny’s autograph on your commencement program! He designed it!
