MMMmmmonday: Happy Memorial Day at Avion & Claw

Happy Memorial Day to all you zesters!! We were very excited to share today’s MMmmmonday with you because it has become one of our favorite new little hot spots in Atascadero. Avion & Claw is an awesome new wine bar just near the Carlton in little old Atown. They have a great assortment of wine, beer and even cider for sippin’ on along with some tasty bites. Chanda and I went a few weeks ago and heard about their Memorial Day backyard BBQ and we knew we had to come back for the par-tay (and even bring our hubbies). Shall we give you a tour??


Let’s start at the front door shall we? we love the use of boxes and succulents and indoor plants to create that lovely curb appeal!

All finished off with the delectable gelato from Leo Leo in Paso and zested by Avion & Claw with their own porter reduction, browned butter, rosemary and glazed walnuts!

(And served in a cute wooden bowl to top it off!) 🙂


Oh happy day!

By the way did we tell you about the owners? They are precious, Alex and her hubby Sean Dugan named the wine bar after their story…


Sean is a pilot and….
