Tea @ TNT: Salon Series Planned 

Please join us for Topanga New Times’ first ever live event! TNT editor and local historian Suzanne Guldimann will be taking us on a virtual ride on the Hueneme, Malibu, Port Los Angeles Railroad—Malibu’s legendary ghost train—at our inaugural TNT Salon Series event on April 2. 

Suzanne is the author of Life in Malibu, and Life in Malibu II and has written extensively about the history of Malibu and about the Rindge family, who once owned the entire Topanga, Malibu, Sequit Rancho. Her exclusive history feature for TNT on May Rindge and “the Train to Nowhere,” and her subsequent “Ghost Train” article in our January issue have garnered more than 5,000 views on our website, and there’s more to the story. Suzanne will share the history of the railway and discuss the remarkable woman who built it. 

We’ll be spilling the tea on Sunday, April 2, at 2 p.m. at the Topanga New Times office at Rosewood, 1111 N Topanga Canyon Blvd. Space is limited, so please RSVP. The event is free, but a voluntary donation of $10 per person would be welcome and would help fund the actual tea (and cookies)—as well as help make it possible for us to bring in other guest speakers in the future. Patrons who donate $25 will receive a limited edition themed mug—this one features a historic image of the railroad tracks running through the heart of old Malibu.

Please join us! RSVP to
