Join Doug Kenck-Crispin, Resident Historian of the podcast series Kick Ass Oregon History for an evening of Weird Astoria 101. Some of the more strange stories, torrid tales and peculiar parables of this coastal town will be weaved into the age-old yarns of Astorian history. Doug will take you from 1811 through the modern era with some of the most memorable moments that helped make this town one of Oregon’s favorite destinations.
Pay attention- at the end of the program, a pop-quiz will be held, and the highest score will win a pair of tickets to a future production at The Armory. Complimentary beer or wine and snacks will be provided.
