The Perfect Way to Spend a Lazy Friday Afternoon..
Moss Bay Distillery has a very interesting history! Built in 1927, the restaurant sits on a cliff with a secluded beach below - the ideal location benefiting illegal clandestine activities! During the Prohibition era, rum-runners whiskey routinely somehow found itself at what was known then as "Frank's" place. "Frank's" was a popular speakeasy, courting local politicians from the City and silent screen stars.
This was the fabulous cliff view that greeted us in the parking lot. Down below are rocks and tidepools galore, and so fun to watch the sea lions frolic in the surf! Easy to see how fog and surf made it possible to land boats with forbidden whiskey on the beach and then drag them up the cliff.
Check out the menu! We had the most scrumptious "seafood sliders"; little salmon, crab cake and yellow fin tuna sandwiches and fish tacos - so good! Tom and I decided that cocktails might just be the ticket while we sat all afternoon and enjoyed the view from the outdoor patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean surf to the North.
Look how happy Tom is! Perfect place to dream away an afternoon...
These are some of my favorite memories, a little sun, a good glass of Pinot Gris and a fresh seafood lunch!
