At Old Road Brand, we are most often inspired by places now relegated to memories of the “Old Road”. This post brings it “home” for me. The Miramar Hotel on the 101 Highway in Montecito (just south of Santa Barbara, CA) was a roadside fixture for decades.
It was a big white beast at the time, which I had christened "The Land Shark". The name was shorted to "The Shark", and many stories could be told about it… this is just one.
