"I came ashore with my guitar and knew this was the place for me," he recalls. A long-time singer, songwriter, and music producer, Philo soon added club owner to his resume. But his vision extended beyond simply serving up libations and live entertainment, and over the years, his pizza joint also became part recording studio, part yacht club, and part community center. It's the home of the Friendship Club of La Cruz, an organization Philo founded to assist local residents who were unable pay for needed medical assistance. English and Spanish language tutoring, yoga classes, speakers, and book exchanges are just some of the Club activities that draw locals and visiting yachtsmen together.
