Last night I went to the Sausalito Cruising Club. This is one of Marin’s best kept secrets. It’s actually a yacht club but I have a feeling it is nothing like what you visualize when you hear the words yacht club.
The Cruising Club founded in 1949 is a funky old barge turned in to a bar/restaurant/dance club with live music. It’s actually a “refurbished WWII ammunition barge”. You have to be a member or know a member to get in. Fortunately my friend Jessica is a member and she invited me to come see The California Honeydrops. For a $15 entry fee I got an awesome concert and a buffet dinner. I invited my friend SFDoug to go because I thought it would be a fun experience for him. If you follow Doug’s blog you know his dining style is more the kind that goes with fine wine, not serve-yourself-all-you-can-eat buffet. 😉 Doug was a good sport. I think he actually enjoyed himself.
The buffet had fresh Caesar salad, a mixed veggie salad, chicken legs, cheese bread, pesto, pasta, rice with chicken and another pasta with red sauce. I tried a little bit of everything and enjoyed it all!
I almost forgot to mention the view! The barge is located on the Bay in Sausalito with an amazing view! (that my iPhone did not do justice to)
I loved The California Honeydrops! Their music is fun and happy! The kind that makes you want to dance.
Digging deep into the roots of American music, The California Honeydrops embrace the traditions of Blues, Gospel, Second Line New Orleans Jazz, and early R&B. –www.cahoneydrops.com
The Sausalito Cruising Club is located at the foot of Napa Street in Sausalito, docked at Dunphy Park.
