Via Birch Bay and the Skinny Dog Lounge in the NEWS! November 17th the big wind storm that swept the area was covered by the Bellingham Herald and featured our very own restaurant that was pummeled by the waves. In a video by Philip A Dwyer, Via Birch Bay was scanned having large waves wash up near the windows, providing an exciting time for the diners. “It was beautiful to watch from inside the restaurant!” said manager Steve about the stormy event. Here are a couple of stills taken from the above video:

Via Birch Bay Cafe and Bistro and the Skinny Dog Lounge are located seaside on beautiful Birch Bay!

Here’s a fun fact: Birch Bay was named in 1792 by Archibald Menzies, a member of the Vancouver Expedition. Vancouver’s two ships used Birch Bay as an anchorage for several days. Menzies noted a number of species of birch and gave the name to the bay.
