Guajito’s rolls out familiar hits of Mexican cuisine

Restaurants in Seaside come and go, but based on 4 visits in April/May, we hope this one stays. The menu is more extensive than most Mexican places, including dishes like 7 seas soup. That one took a while to prepare but had generous amounts of fresh seafood- shrimp, crab, mussels, scallops and more. It came in a hot, flavorful  broth. The tamales are made in-house and unlike many tamales, had plenty of meat relative to the dough. We split an order of fajitas – which was excellent and enough food for 2 moderate appetites. The enchiladas are also good and come with a choice of sauces. The wait staff – Carlos, Cinthia   and Bautista – are friendly and accommodating. We’ll make this a regular stop.  Visited May 2017

Making a nest in Seaside.  VIEW FROM THE PORCH.  Eve Marx, reporter/  Seaside Signal May 26, 2017

Neighborhoods spots are special because regulars feel at home, with the special advantage that at home you have to make your own food or beverage, and also clean up after yourself.  Despite the general transient nature of this area, this edge of the continent we call the North Coast, we’re blessed with an abundance of neighborhood restaurants and hang outs where the locals feel at home.

 

What makes a neighborhood hangout outstanding?  Good food  is a plus, but vibe and atmosphere and proximity are really what count.  To me, the ideal hangout is one I can walk to.  A certain level of service helps.  My friends share with me their own favorite hangs.  High on many people’s’ lists in  Seaside: Seaside Coffee House, Nonni’s Italian Bistro and Bagels by the Sea (all located in the historic Gilbert District downtown).

 

Some neighborhoods hangs aren’t so much about food and drink as they are the other patrons.  People naturally want to go where their friends hear the latest dish and gossip.  If it’s Mexican food you’re craving, give the new Guajito’s on Broadway a shot.  Muy buena comida!  House-made tamales.  Fajitas. The best chicken and shrimp tacos I’ve had in a long tie.  Margaritas.   Wonderful and caring service by the ever–friendly Bautista. Hmmm.  This place is easily one of my favorite neighborhood handout.

Beavers Tales Art Exhibit and Sale travels to Astoria and…

 

 

Selected pieces at Fairweather Gallery, located at 612 Broadway,  through July, in a designated display of beaver art.

 Please visit http://www.fairweatherhouseandgallery.com for more info.

And, so, too, the Beaver Tales Art Exhibit and Sale in the Pop-Up Gallery, located at 608 Broadway, in Seaside closed at the end of May. Between the Fairweather Gallery and the Pop-Up Beaver Tales Gallery  for May the Beaver Tales traveling exhibit wrapped up the most successful showing to date, selling  25 pieces of beaver art, more than any other venue in 2017 so far!  

 

The beaver  art was distributed between the Fairweather Gallery and  in an adjacent pop-up gallery, courtesy of The Gilbert Block Building  owners.  In addition, outstanding contributions were made the beaver enthusiasts, patrons and artists, many had quite a drive to get to Seaside, yet arrived to donate gallery time in the pop-up space.  Beaver artists did art demonstrations. Indeed, sales usually picked up when there were interesting things happening.

 

 

 

“The success of the Seaside show is likely attributable to the support of the three conservation organizational sponsors, consistent and effective promotion by Denise Fairweather, extensive local media coverage, and, of course, special appearances of Beaver  artists.” –Sara Vickerman,  Beaver Tales curator.

 

Q: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS BEAVER TALES TRAVELING TO NEXT, YOU ASK?

 

A: 25 pieces of beaver art go to the Astoria Art Loft for display through June and July. The exhibit opens on June 10 for a pre-Art Walk event from 2-5. Seaside/ Gearhart  naturalist, scientist and biologist  Neal Maine speaks at 3.

“Thank you again for being a part of this unique and exciting project. Incredibly, its only half over! Have a great summer.”

Neal Maine beaver ecology back story.

 

Neal Maine, scientist and wildlife photographer welcomed Beaver enthusiasts before presented a lecture on Beaver Ecology on  May 25th in the Beaver Tales Exhibition Pop-up Gallery at 608 Broadway, located in the historic Gilbert District of downtown Seaside.

Neal Maine explained how beavers engineer wetlands on the North Coast, and how people can learn to take advantage of their environmental benefits while protecting property from flooding and other damage.

 

 

“Beavers, though woefully misunderstood, actually create and sustain wetlands that aid in resuscitating wetland and riparian stream habitats.  They play a central role in shaping our future as we prepare for transformations that a warming and changing climate may bring.” 

Neal Maine offers a one-to-one talk about the importance of embracing the amazing work that beavers do to create habitats for many, many creatures and critters.  Maine’s  vast experience  in studying and photographing wildlife enables him to tell fascinating stories about these industrious little rodents that most people never see.

 

Beaver enthusiasts gathered in the Pop-Up Beaver Tales Exhibition space to listen to Neal Maine speak.

 

 

The purpose of the ecology lecture highlighted the importance of beavers in creating wetlands and other aquatic habitat.

“Beavers play a central role in shaping our future as we prepare for transformations that a warming and changing climate may bring.”

 

Beaver enthusiasts  discussed about how to work with beaver to conserve and restore natural systems after Neal Maine’s lecture.

Saying goodbye to BEAVER TALES in Seaside! And hello to BEAVER new experiences!


Artist and Beaver Tales hostess Jane McGeehan

Beaver Tales Sale and Exhibition is in the process of trimming the collection to accommodate smaller venues for traveling art show.  At this point, there is Beaver-themed art that will not fit in the three upcoming exhibit spaces, so it is a 50% off opportunity on selected pieces through May 30th.

Clay artist Sandy Visse demonstrated LIVE during the final week of  the Seaside BEAVER TALES Pop-Up Gallery.

“North County Recreation Center in Nehalem and  ArtLoft  in Astoria are very enthusiastic about their upcoming BEAVER TALES Art Exhibition and Sale and appreciate the opportunity to educate community members about the benefits of beavers. Both venues have nice spaces.”

Sara Vickerman, curator

Having artistic demonstrations by a number of artists in the BEAVER TALES pop-up gallery has made the exhibit a lot more interesting.

Glass artist Linda Gerrad and her BEAVER TALES platter.

“The Seaside Beaver Tales Exhibit is going well. After an opening that included cold, rain and howling winds, the weather has since improved and visitors are flocking to the coast. Sales of beaver art have picked up as well. We have sold 14 pieces, and looking forward to exceeding the number sold at the previous two venues at  OSU and Lake Oswego (18 from each).” –Sara Vickerman

Jane McGeehan will be there to open at 11.

Sandy Visse (with Best Dam Worker) will be there about 1 PM.

“Be sure to tell your friends that Memorial Day weekend is the last time to see the entire exhibit. We will be packing up the art on the 30th and distributing the pieces to the next venues. Each of them (Astoria, Nehalem, and the Oregon Zoo) have space and other limitations that require us to select fewer pieces to display.”
