OUR 10th Summer!

Whoa, what an amazing Spring.  We've been so busy that I've not been able to get this newsletter out...better late than never!  We've had the patio open since early May and it's looking absolutely amazing out there with our new planter boxes, thanks to the awesome women at Art of Soil  Please remember, we can't guarantee reservations on the patio...the best way to explain it is that we can guarantee you a reservation at a certain time, but not necessarily in a certain place.  We do our very best to make everyone happy and it is a big juggling act!

 CHOOCHOKAM Arts Festival.  This marks the 40th year of this wonderful festival of the arts, July 11th and 12th.  For more details on Choochokam and other Langley happenings visit

On Monday, July 27th, we'll be having our 6th annual GEORGETOWN BREWING BEER maker Manny Chao comes out to the island and we pair up at least 6 courses with his great beer... $80/person.  Seatings between 5:30-8, call or email for reservations.  360 221 4060.
