Treat yourself to a super delicious locally caught Dungeness crab dinner and live music in the company of your friends and neighbors — all at the Lincoln County Historical Society’s 12th Annual Crab Krack, scheduled for Feb. 9 at the Best Western Agate Beach Inn in Newport. Event proceeds benefit the completion of renovations at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center.
This whole-crab feast includes various side dishes, an array of desserts, a no-host bar, live music by Sons of Beaches and both a silent and oral auction with special guest auctioneer Rep. David Gomberg. The fun begins at 4 p.m. on Feb. 9 at the Best Western Agate Beach Inn, 3019 N Coast Highway, Newport.
Each year, crab for this event is graciously donated by the Yaquina Bay commercial fishing community. The generosity of a long list of local restaurants and merchants also help make this annual event possible.
The Agate Beach Inn is offering a special rate for guests attending the festivities, and reservations can be made by calling 541-265-9411, or 800-547-3310 and mentioning “Crab Krack” to get the special rate.
