History Guild Day Trip | Sunday Brunch at Moss Beach Distillery

Sunday, May 4, 2014, 9:45 am–3 pm
Sunday, May 4, 2014 - 9:45am

Motor with the History Guild to the Moss Beach Distillery for a delicious brunch with the possibility of catching a glimpse of the Distillery’s resident Ghost—the Blue Lady. Enjoy bottomless glasses of sparkling wine or mimosa, fresh baked pastries, coffee or tea, fresh orange juice, and a choice of one of three delicious entrees, and hear about the ghostly coast-side legend.

The story begins during the prohibition era when the Moss Beach Distillery, known then as “Frank’s Place” was located on a cliff above a secluded beach—a perfect location to benefit the clandestine activities of Canadian rum-runners. It was a popular nightspot for silent film stars and politicians from San Francisco. Mystery writer Dashiell Hammett frequented the place and used it as a setting for one of his detective stories. The Distillery claims it still retains one of Frank’s former customers—its resident ghost—The Blue Lady. If you’re lucky you just might catch a glimpse of her as you wander the premises enjoying the spectacular cliff-side ocean view from the dining room and patio of the Distillery.
