BubbleGum Alley soon to be gone???

by Karnubawax

I heard a rumor that part of SLO's famous BubbleGum Alley is slated to be torn down! Say it ain't so! Any one else hear anything about this?

RE: BubbleGum Alley soon to be gone???

by travelgourmet

Bubble Gum Alley is a walkway between two buildings in the center of San Luis Obispo, off Higuera Street. I have placed a few pieces of gum on the walls myself. Sticky job. lol. You can see it all at website: http://www.locallinks.com/bubblegum_alley.htm

David, Sorry, so use to saying slo that I messed up the article website, the correct website. Read the article from the Tribune at website: http://www.sanluisobispo.com/mld/sanluisobispo/12217164.htm

Hard to find little pieces of dirt left on the coast, but SLO is a great area, year round. Make sure you go to a Thursday night Farmers Market on Higeura. It will put down any Farmers Market in California.

Good for you Giampiero. I am sipping a Justin 2003 Paso Syrah, a winery located in Paso Robles, nearby to SLO. Salute!

Thanks for the info! I'll check it out in a sec. It's always sad to see places of this sort - homegrown, spontaneous, non-official places - go by the wayside. Speaking of which... ever heard of, or been to, the Albany Bulb?

RE: RE: BubbleGum Alley soon to be gone???

by bevjerry

The San Simeon earthquake in December of 2004 is the culprit here. The buildings whose walls make up Bubble Gum Alley are not safe in an earthquake. The owners MUST retrofit and in most cases find that rebuilding is more economically reasonable than retrofitting. The architect was shown on local TV stating that they plan to retain the flavor (?) of the area and the new walls will expect to have bubble gum placed on them as well. The pedestrian walkway will be maintained. We'll be sad to see our grandson's gum disappear with all the others.

We moved to this little piece of Paradise 18 years ago.

I heard the owners are going to scrape off the gum, rechew it, and stick it back up within a week of completion to help keep the flavor of the alley. ;-)

Hi all. thanks for all the replies.

I just visited SLO in February and checked out the alley. Now that I've seen it again, it may not be a bad idea... it was a lot greyer and grosser than I remember it! Still, it's pretty unique and everyone coming to SLO should check it out.

If anyone thinks that bubblegum alley is a piece of history that must be saved they have never been there on a hot day!!! good ridance!!

Travel Tips for San Luis Obispo

Visit Montana de Oro, a state...

by slopat

Visit Montana de Oro, a state park on the coast where you can see whales migrating to Mexico. Don't miss Farmers' market, every thursday night in downtown San Luis Obispo San Luis is nestled in a beautiful valley--flying in from anywhere is always a wonderful treat.

Cheap golfing

by malinaberg

Golf in SLO is more about drinking beer than getting that frustratingly small ball in the even smaller hole, and its cheap! At the laguna lake 9-hole golf course you pay 4-9USD for a round. Bring your own set of clubs, or rent one for 7USD. And the beer, for gods sake, dont forget the beer!

Beautiful hiking at Big Falls

by malinaberg

Big Falls, fairly close to Arroyo Grande, is an "80-foot cataract in the isolated Santa Lucia Wilderness north of Lopez Lake". To even get to the track you prolly, depending on the season and weather, need a truck or other tougher type car. Its oh so much fun driving there; there are roads, but they're so bad you might as well be off-roading. During the hike there are plenty of excellent spots for swimming and playing around in the water falls. Watch out for snakes, turtles and lizards tho!

A Must Eat

by unfortunate_dreams about Firestone Grill

Firestone's is one of the most popular places to eat in San Luis Obispo. On any given evening the line stretches out the door. There are several dishes to choose from including chicken strips, fries, drinks (there is a bar there also), tri-tip sandwiches, salads, and hamburgers. It does tend to get a little pricey, but is worth it. This isn't the restaurant you'll want to attend for a nice, quiet dinner as there are big screen TV's in the bar area, and lots of noise. There is indoor seating as well as outdoor. Firestone's is famous for many dishes, but my personal favorite are their chicken strips. They are very tasty and cost $5.50 which gives you a large enough portion to share. The fries are also delectable, due to their spicy seasoning. The fries come as a "side of fries" or a "basket of fries." These are LARGE portions. Unless you have a lumberjack joining you for dinner, I would recommend the side. This usually is enough for a party of 3 or 4.

"ALL YOU CAN EAT" CHINESE BUFFET

by travelgourmet about GOLDEN CHINA RESTAURANT

Walking around San Luis Obispo at the lunch hours and the aromas of cooking foods fill the air from the many restaurants, pubs, and bars on the main street, Higuera. All that walking in the morning can build up a hunger in one and the scent of Chinese food wafting through the air, caught my nose.

Walking inside the Golden China Restaurant, I went to the long tables of Chinese dishes filled with many different types of foods, from rice and noodles to beef & broccoli and Egg Foo Young. Oh, I didn't see my Kung Pao Chicken or the Mu Shu Pork that I crave, but it looked decent and inviting. I tried many of the dishes and although the flavors started to all taste the same there were several that stood out. All in all, not bad for all you can eat Chinese food. I tried the Egg Foo Young first because that to me is a good indicator of quality and I must admit that the dish was done quite well. The egg was kept a little moist and the flavors all came through. A beef & broccoli dish was to my liking because the broccoli was al dente and the beef had a nice sauce. Surprised to see vegetable tempura but there it was with onion rings and sweet potato slices. The Wontons were nice as well. I felt that the soft noodles were done to perfection.

The problem is that many of the dishes were without a sauce as the sauces were separated and you had to try about five different sauces to find the one that seemed to fit the dish. Once the right combination was found, the different dishes had a more pronounced flavor all it's own. As I said before, not bad for all you can eat Chinese.
