Today, Thursday December 17, 2020 is our last day of Dine-In for the 2020 year. Starting Friday, December 18th, per the latest State of Oregon restrictions, we’ll be shuffling back, yet again, to Takeout / Carryout only for at least the next two weeks.
While we know this feels like the Grinch stole even the coal from everyone’s stockings, we invite you all to join us in tipping our hats to the state of things.
To our family, friends, amazing guests, ardent stakeholders, and supportive entities including the City of Garibaldi, the Port of Garibaldi, Garibaldi Fire & Rescue, Tillamook County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Coast Guard Station Tillamook Bay, the Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce, the Tillamook Coast Visitors Associations, our local media outlets, every incredible entity & non-profit we failed to mention in our tear-smeared haste, and Tillamook County as a whole, we are humbled by the outpouring of support you have given Team Bistro and our fellow area establishments. It keeps our motors running during these conflicting, confusing times.
As we look to navigate these foggy, uncharted seas for the next couple of weeks, we plan to, once again, tackle Takeout / Carryout. Keep your eye out for new Portside PickUp Specials. We’ll be shouting them out fast & a’plenty via Facebook. Especially, oh yes, those popular “For Two” specials.
We’ll be spreading a little extra cheer to our Meat the Sea members with our next goodies giveaway – which should be coming very, very soon. Make sure you’re signed up for our Meat the Sea Fan Club on the website – if you haven’t already done so. It’s free & (mostly) painless.
Most importantly, we want to wish all of you a safe, healthy and prosperous holiday season with your chosen quarantine family and friends. Now more than ever we could all use a little joy and happiness. Don’t be afraid to tell them how much they mean to you, and steal that last cookie out of the tin when nobody’s looking.
Lastly, we know we’re all struggling through once-in-a-generation events, but if you’re able, remember to buy some at the local level this season. If you can’t spare the funds, then if you can, share cheer as best as we can with a socially-distant smile and a joke – good or otherwise.
If we keep our spirits up and don’t put an expiration date on our hopes, then maybe, just maybe, we’ll all come out the other side better for it.
