Return of the Krack

The Crab Krack will return to Newport this Sunday, Feb. 11, offering guests a luscious dinner of fresh, local Dungeness crab accompanied by live jazz.

This Lincoln County Historical Society fund-raiser is made possible thanks to generous donations from the local crab fishing fleet, alongside donations from local restaurants and merchants.

As well as a whole crab dinner, guests can enjoy various side dishes, an array of desserts, no-host bar, live music by the Bringetto Jazz Duo, and both silent and oral auctions.

Event proceeds will be used to complete lower-floor renovations at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center.

Tickets, $55 per person or $45 for historical society members, are available at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Museum, 333 Bay Blvd; and at the Burrows House Museum, 545 SW 9th Street. For more information, to purchase tickets, or reserve a table for eight, call the Historical Society at 541-265-7509.

The Crab Krack will start at 4 pm at the Best Western Agate Beach Inn, 3019 North Coast Highway, Newport.

The inn is offering a special rate for guests attending the festivities. Call 541-265-9411, or 800-547-3310 and mention “Crab Krack” to get the special rate.
