You can thank Easter for, among other reasons, giving you another excuse to dress up in this all-too-casual town. Come decked out in your finest threads next Sunday at one of these local brunch hot-spots doing Easter right.
Some of us here at 7x7 think that cake reigns supreme in the circular desserts category, while others believe the nostalgia, homeyness, and American spirit of pie trumps any layered creation. For the latter of us, we’ve ranked the best in the Bay. Get out your forks, and open your pie hole.

In October, local sparkling wine lovers flock en masse down south for Bubblyfest on Pismo Beach, where the bubbles flow freely at events both social and educational. After a sold-out first year, the event organizers added a variety of extra events and extended the whole shebang by two days. With over 50 local and international sparkling wine and champagne producers pouring, you’ll have more than enough bubbly to make the drive worth while.
Seeing as how the pickling revolution is well underway, you might as well make and serve the best.

Make a bunch and serve them atop burgers and more.
