the day before, enjoying drinks on the lake at frankie’s surf club

a few snaps of a welcome drink we attended the day before one of our weddings this past summer… who knew there was such a cool little place to be found up in the muskoka town of port carling? if you’re a fan of the grand electric on queen st west here in toronto, frankie’s surf club is their cottage country version — they’re run by the same guys & right next door is a full grand electric restaurant too.

i love a spot with history and this place was originally a 1960s speakeasy famous for its live music and penny arcades. can’t think of a better place for a relaxed wedding weekend get together, to enjoy the company of everyone arriving from out of town and kick off the wedding celebrations with a drink in hand on the lake. there’s nothing better.

just had to post a few of these photos… loved the vibe there and couldn’t not share.

(see the day after here.)
