Little River Inn Winter Offers 

THE LITTLE RIVER INN ON THE MENDOCINO COAST ELEVATES LOVE AND TEMPTS PALATES THIS JANUARY AND FEBRUARY

Winter Guest Packages at the Historic Ocean View Resort include Sleep with the Crabs, Rustic Romance, and Valentine’s Day Romance

 

Guests can celebrate love and indulge in the freshest seasonal fare this January and February at the historic Little River Inn on the Mendocino Coast of Northern California. Throughout the entire month of January, guests who take advantage of the SLEEP WITH THE CRABS package can catch their own crabs out on the Pacific and then return to the warm and toasty comfort of the Inn. If guests visit between January 18 and 27, they can also catch Crab Feast Mendocino, an annual festival that pays homage to the local Dungeness crab, as well as local wine and beer. As long as the tasty crustaceans are available on the coast, Little River Inn’s Executive Chef Marc Dym will be cooking up dishes prepared with this native bounty at the Little River Inn Restaurant and Ole’s Whale Watch Bar. In addition, to honor love, the Little River Inn has two tender specials this February. The RUSTIC ROMANCE  package encourages guests to smooch and snuggle, and it includes a map to the famous Kissing Benches of Little River and an ocean view room with a cozy fireplace. Guests who stay over Valentine’s Day can enjoy the VALENTINE’S DAY ROMANCE package, an idyll that boasts such delicacies as chocolate dipped strawberries and of course, breakfast in bed.

Allegheny County Airport Authority Helps Government Shutdown 

Operation Thank You: Allegheny County Airport Authority to Provide Free Lunches to Federal Workers at Pittsburgh International on Fridays

As government shutdown continues, airport staff will deliver lunches to more than 200 workers including TSA and FAA as they miss their scheduled payday.

A table will be set up on the landside ticketing level at 10 a.m. where airport staff will distribute some of the lunches. Lunches will also be delivered to air traffic controllers and other tower workers at AGC.

“We have not seen an impact on operations or lines here in Pittsburgh due to the shutdown. We are so thankful to the federal employees, including TSA, FAA, Customs and others for continuing to work without pay at this critical time,” Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis said. “I think we all can agree that this is an issue that needs to be fixed quickly.”

The Airport Authority plans to continue providing the lunches on Fridays to federal workers until the government is reopen. Read more about the local TSA impact here.
