A late start to this year’s crab season has not stopped the Yachats Lions Club, which will serve up more than 1,500 pounds of fresh Dungeness at its Annual Crab Feed this Saturday, Jan. 27.
The event takes place at two venues. Diners opting for the Yachats Commons can chose between an early seating at 12:30 pm or a 4 pm seating reserved for groups of six or more. The Lions have accommodated groups as large as 36 people at this seating in previous years.
Meanwhile, the Yachats Lions Hall will open at 4 pm, offering cafeteria-style seating on a first-come-first-served basis, giving diners the chance to meet new people as they wield their crab hammer.
For $40 per person, diners get to eat as much crab as they like — until it’s all gone — along with coleslaw, French bread, baked beans, coffee and soda.
“We get great support from the community and local businesses in Yachats, Waldport and Newport,” said crab feed coordinator Debra Novgrod. “South Beach Fish Market cooks and cleans the best tasting local crab you ever ate.”
The Yachats Commons is located at 441 Hwy. 101 N., while the Lions Hall is one block west of the highway on 4th Street.
For tickets, call Kevin or Peggy at 541-563-5629 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the time and venue. Tickets are also available from Judith’s Kitchen Tools in Yachats.
All proceeds from the event go to support Lions community service projects with scholarships to graduating seniors, food pantries, the pre-school and after-school programs of the Yachats Youth and Family Activities program, South Lincoln Resources programs and eyeglasses for children and adults.
