Laughing & learning my way through Cambria. -Robin Riker, actor/writer
“Cambria, CA Loves Me, this I Know” by Brandon Follett
The hilarious former owner of the Bridge Street Inn, Brandon Follett, has brought smiles to Central Coast adventurers through his new Cambria guide and coupon book. His newest book delivers 48 pages of fun that includes unique coupons ranging from discounts on restaurants to bicycle rentals. Christina Tobin, Founder and Chair of Free & Equal, says it best, “Whether it’s politics or travel…different points of view create more choices. Brandon’s perspective will help the reader discover some of Cambria’s best kept secrets.”
“Cambria, CA Loves Me, this I Know,” is more than the typical guide book containing a map with three line descriptions. As educators have realized, humans do not always learn the same way. Brandon is aware that not everyone travels the same way. For example Brandon reveals the best places in Cambria to eat beans through a conversation he has with a character named Francisco and his tupperware of black beans. Another example of Brandon’s unique style, is how he explains the clean smells of the Cambrian air through the perspective of a nose. Brandon’s book will have you sniffing the air, taking selfie sexy photos, and drinking wine with a goat named Chet.
“Cambria, CA Loves Me, this I Know,” takes the alternative guide book to a whole new level by including 20 business coupons. There are 10 coupons from Cambria and 10 coupons from Morro Bay (23 miles south of Cambria on the PCH). The coupons range from 20% off a pint of beer to rent 1 bicycle and get the 2nd rental free. There’s a coupon for every type of adventurer who’s excited to experience Cambria and the surrounding area.
“Cambria, CA Loves Me, this I Know,” can be purchased at the following locations: Stolo Family Vineyards, Ragged Point Inn and Resort, Henry Miller Library, Top Dog Coffee Bar, Coalesce Books, Seed & Soul, Bridge Street Inn, Ball & Skein & More, and Cambria Ocean Drifters. 10% of the author’s earnings will go towards the Cambria based nonprofit, Free and Equal Elections, an organization to broaden our electoral choices through education.

“What a neat concept this book offers: essays and stories about omelettes and cuisine from around the world. This particular issue offers experiences from Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia.
Part restaurant review, part tour guide, this book offers pure entertainment in eloquent language that can be enjoyed by just about everyone.
Written like a memoir (the good kind), the book offers a glimpse into foreign food production, consumption and a healthy dose of social interaction and culture shock as well. It’s an objective look at travel and all it entails, offering tips and advice on how to get by. It also gives descriptions of local cuisine that can either repulse you or attract you, so reading it while hungry is a bad idea.
This book is well worth the money. Rich with well-worded descriptions and beautiful photos, this zine will satisfy the reader who has either travel-curiosity or no idea what to make for dinner (which, of course, would be omelettes).”

“I’ve read many a farm book that has aroused my body into laughter, crying, sighing, sniffing, cooking, digging, itching, staring, singing and finger tapping. Finally a farm book who’s words are so daring that my body got to experience several new written induced sensations. I call these physical reactions to Ms. Rae’s words the “Goat Squirt Tickle.” and the “Kale Me Green Tingle.” The book, White Oak Summer, will take your imagination to a mental garden so fertile that you won’t put it down till all the veggies have been harvested and there’s no milk left in the goat.”
