Cimarone Wines Tasting Room
Los Olivos, CA

Stop by for wine tasting on Saturday, April 19th, and Easter Sunday, April 20th. We’re hiding Easter eggs filled 2-for-1 tasting cards. On Sunday, we’ll hide eggs in the backyard for children to find – when they’ve gathered five eggs, they will receive an Easter egg cookie!

We’ll be dying eggs on both Saturday and Sunday too…it’s not quite wine blending, but…

We’ll also be offering our Build-Your-Own-6-Pack in our tasting room only – a great opportunity to select six of your favorite wines at tremendous savings!

Choose your favorite wine and and enjoy a bottle at one of our tables in the backyard…perhaps with a chocolate Easter egg or two. After all, there are few better pairings than chocolate and red wine!

Sides Breakfast

April 27, 2014 8:00 am - April 27, 2014 10:00 am
Sides Hardware and Shoes - A Brothers Restaurant
Los Olivos , CA

Breakfast is BACK! Thank you all so much for your support and dedication to Sides. We miss breakfast like crazy and appreciate you – our fans! You are the driving force to bringing breakfast back to Sides.
Here’s the story: When we opened in April of 2012 we had no idea what to expect. We saw the hole in the outfield for breakfast in Los Olivos and stepped up to the plate. To this day we still receive rave reviews for our breakfast menu, it was a hit! You know how business can be…breakfast went from 6 days a week to 3 days a week to 0 over the course of 18 months. So 6 months later, to celebrate our 2 year anniversary, we had this idea: Reintroduce breakfast on a limited basis, selling tickets, so we know exactly what and who to expect. We’re putting our fans to the test. If we sell out, we’ll add more dates.
Limited seats are available.
