Exercise your Cat & have Brunch


The Moss Beach Distillery

April 7

Join us for our first drive of the year followed by a display of our cats in the parking lot and then a delicious brunch in a room with spectacular ocean views. We will meet at four Bay Area loca- tions to caravan to the Moss Beach Distillery located at 140 Beach Way, Moss Beach. This will be our fourth trip to this California Point of Interest. During Prohibition it was an ideal spot for rum running and bootleggers and became a ‘speakeasy’ establishment. The restaurant is located on a cliff above a secluded beach with fabulous views. It’s famous both because mystery writer Dashiell Hammett frequented the establishment and used it as a setting for his detective stories and because long time JAG member Bernie Stein worked there in his teens! Ask Bernie to share some of his stories about many of the “private activities” that occurred at the restaurant while he was a staff member years ago.

We will all assemble in the parking lot south of the entrance by 10:45 to exhibit our Cats and socialize with brunch starting at 11:15. The brunch includes:

  • Fresh baked pastries (unlimited supply)
  • Fruit cup
  • A bottomless glass of orange juice, sparkling wine or Mimosas
  • Coffee or tea and soft drinks

    Because of the popularity of this event, the restaurant has moved our group into the main dining area which can accommodate 64 people. Make your reservation early as this event always sells out.
    Cost for the brunch (including tip & tax) will be $48 per person. Non-member guests attending with a member may attend for a $5 additional fee. While some might feel this is a steep price to pay for brunch, the food is plentiful and fantastic, the view is spectacular and the fellowship can’t be beat.

    Payment can be made by:

  • Choice of one entrée to be decided at the brunch
  • Check made out to JAG and sent to: Phil Endliss at 37 Campbell Lane, Menlo Park CA, 94025

  • PayPal either below or by sending money directly through PayPal to treasurer@jags.org

  • Call Phil (650-854-4445) to charge to your credit card

For those wanting to participate in the drive, we’ll meet at several locations (South Bay, Peninsula, East Bay and San Francisco) to caravan to the Distillery. The exact locations will be sent to you via email at the beginning of April. Please let the drive leader for the site you’ll be joining know you be on their drive. If you drive directly to The Distillery, please allow ample time to arrive by 10:45 as the Sunday beach traffic can be heavy.
