We’d love to hear how your summer was, too, so drop by and share a story or two. Details and full menu and cocktail additions after the jump…

COOL THING WE WANT #442 | This Small, One Room Cabin Deep In The Topanga Wilds Tue, 02 Sep 2014 17:10:24 +0000 [...]]]> Topanga_Cabin_05

This tiny retreat in California’s Topanga Canyon was built by Mason St. Peter over the course of 2 years (it was worked on two weekends of every month). Between us, we think it would look a lot better here in BC, perhaps on one of the Islands, its lovely deck shadowed by an arbutus or two…
