A Night Out At the Airport!

Beaches Hopper to PDX… Shuttle to Fun!

Now here’s a cool night out!  On Friday, March 4th, drop into Beaches Vancouver between 4:30-7:30 pm and catch our Shuttle Bus for a quick trip over to Beaches at the Portland Airport.  Enjoy Happy Hour between 4-6 pm, or Dinner, or Dessert, or just visit for a look around.  It’s also a great way to have a party with friends--Yep, we can do large parties!!

A Cozy Fireplace to Hang Around
We are so excited about what we have to offer, we want everyone to have the chance to experience it! The Bus will leave every ½ hour from Vancouver through 7:30.  That last shuttle leaving the Airport back to Vancouver will be around 8:30.  If you haven’t been to our PDX Beaches, you’re in for a treat.  We have created a tropical Beaches paradise with some incredible Murals, Palm Trees, Bamboo, Cabanas, and our Hot Rod Display. Don’t have the time, energy or money for a get-away? We will help you experience a mini-vacation right here!  We also have a perfect space that can handle private parties up to 60 people.  It is quite the experience with the same great service you’ve come to expect from us!
Celebrate a Birthday!

And if you, our friends, like it, we’ll do it every Friday!

See ya at the Beach!

Hurray, Hurray for Green Eggs & Ham!

Are you excited for some Green Eggs & Ham?

I am the Egg Man, Goo Goo G’joob. Okay, so maybe not!

It’s almost time for our annual Green Eggs & Ham Community Event. From March 7-11th, Our Team, as well as many Community volunteers, will serve Breakfast to around 48 Schools, which works out to about 7000 kids & parents!!

We started this program with the Vancouver School District Foundation back in 1996. The goal was simple--Get the parents into the schools to read with the kids. We just happened to be chatting about the needs of the schools around the time of the national program, Dr. Seuss' Read Across America.

The ‘Green Eggs’ breakfast became a natural for our goal, which also made it a little fun for the kids. Throw in a Dr. Seuss hat and a book for each child, a breakfast for everybody, the Cat in a Hat, some door prizes & lots of smiles, and you’ve got all the makings of a cool family get together.

And now, what started out as just a few schools, has spread throughout the Clark County community. All the food is prepared and sent out from Beaches Restaurant in Vancouver and the Firstenburg Center. We have 8 teams on the road at all times to make sure we get to the 7-10 Elementary schools each day, for 5 days in a row! We can’t thank the Schools enough for their participation in making it a success each & every year. And a special Thanks to the Beach Team, all our Community Volunteers, and Jan over at the VSD Foundation, for all their dedication.

So, it’s Sam I Am, Goo Goo G’joob, I am the Eggman….. checking out!
