We are heading to the Merrimaker today for a cribbage tournament and an unofficial start of my 45th birthday, which is tomorrow. The Merrimaker is pictured under "dive bar" in Wikipedia. I was introduced to it by a friend, Kimmy, who bartendered there a few years back. Since then, we have moved to Los Osos from Paso Robles, with a quick stop in Atascadero. All of these towns are located in the Central Coast region of CA, San Luis Obispo County.
I have always enjoyed a local bar.
