Catch The Early Bird!

Adrift Hospitalities has supported over 50 organizations through their Cocktails for a Cause program. And now through the end of September, the Friends of the Willapa Refuge are the recipients of 50% of the proceeds earned through the sale of The Early Bird! 

Find this expertly crafted cocktail at the Pickled Fish and Shelburne Pub on the Long Beach Peninsula and in Astoria at the Bowline Hotel. The Friends will use the sale proceeds to support Refuge programs and to keep offering events for our members and communities.
