Yachats Oregon + Dungeness Crab Cakes

Dinner last night at the historic Drift Inn in tiny Yachats, Oregon: Dungeness crabcakes.
 

Via wiki:
Yachats (/ˈjɑːhɑːts/ YAH-hahts) is a small coastal city in Lincoln County, Oregon, United States. According to Oregon Geographic Names, the name comes from the Siletz language, and means "dark water at the foot of the mountain". There is a range of differing etymologies, however.[7] William Bright says the name comes from the Alsea placename /yáx̣ayky/.[8] At the 2010 census, the city's population was 690. In 2007, Budget Travel magazine named Yachats one of the "Ten Coolest Small Towns of the U.S.A.",[9] and Yachats was chosen among the top 10 U.S. up-and-coming vacation destinations by Virtualtourist.[10] In 2011, Arthur Frommer, founder of Frommer's Travel Guides, listed Yachats number seven among his ten favorite vacation destinations in the world.[11]


Art had seafood lasagne. Local musicians played in the corner while the Bears flashed bright on the bar's TV. Nice vibe.

  3. The Drift Inn sounds interesting:

    "It was a wild assed place that perhaps Ken Kesey described best. This place was the backdrop, the inspiration for the book "one flew over the Cuckoos nest. According to Ken Keseys' family, Ken wrote the book while hanging out in Lester's Drift Inn. Which really is another story...., you should read it. "

  4. We miss you too, PK, and, Sev, it's a grand meetings of the Ss. Superb all 'round. Bruce, nice find on Drift Inn. The menu had a good piece on its history, which we had just a brief time to scan before falling into our lemongrass tea with bourbon. Clearly it's a rich spot.
