Welcome to RELM. This is where I work. Sort of. This is the second RELM, located in San Elijo Hills (a 25-minute drive inland from Carlsbad). I work here occasionally, once every couple weeks. Normally you’ll find me at the Carlsbad location (a 3-minute bike ride from my apartment).

Tonight was the last shift that I’m currently scheduled to work in San Elijo. I’m sure I’ll work there again sometime, but just in case I don’t, I took the opportunity (Mondays are slow) to let my aesthetic eye loose on the place.

RELM San Elijo is photogenic. The glasses hang in neat rows. The wood bar-top shines. The wine racks beg for photo-ops. And that afternoon lighting? It made love to my camera. ☼
