Albatross

Comments

Not an oyster in sight but had a relaximg time tonight drinking whiskey and munching on the best pickle plate ever and listening to great local musicians.
This place appears to be closed.
Looked busy this evening; however disappointing to see 10+ people crowded Closely together out front with no social distancing and no face covering as if life is normal rather than the current pandemic and the number of Covid cases on the upswing. 😷 Worrying for Astorians.
What time do you open on NYE? I might not be able to ring in the New Year at Albatross (SADLY), but hopefully I can stop in for a cocktail!

Albatross is a small farm to table restaurant and oyster bar on Oregon's beautiful north coast. Sister restaurant to thistle (McMinnville OR)

A surprise Fourth of July fireworks show marks holiday in Astoria

To Mayor Bruce Carey Jones and the elected officials of The City of Astoria-
We need to open our eyes to the manipulation that happens when these fireworks of “freedom” are ignited.
This country is built on stolen land and on the backs of enslaved people. This system continues today with broken treaties, internment/detention camps, for profit prisons, slave labor and systematic economic inequality.
This is not a day, government or country to be celebrating.
We must be facilitators of critical thought and champions of change if we are to claim that this is the “Land Of the Free”
INDEPENDENCE AND FREEDOM FOR SOME IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
NO ONE IS FREE UNTIL WE ARE ALL FREE

The Historical Legacy of Juneteenth

We will be closed to reflect in solidarity this day of Juneteenth.
