The Morro Bay Maritime Museum is holding a “Springtime Cruising” barbecue fundraiser with tickets available now through April 4.
The barbecue, cooked up by the folks at Tognazzini’s Dockside, is a whole smoked chicken for $15 and/or a rack of fall-off-the-bone smoked pork ribs for $30.
You can also get a bottle of Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards’ Golden Delicious Apple Chardonnay for another $20, with proceeds going to support the Maritime Museum, located at 1210 Embarcadero, at the north end of the Front Street parking lot.
Tickets are available at the museum from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Or call Bonnie Jones at (602) 526-4367. Deadline to order is Sunday, April 4.
Drive-thru pick-up is set for 5-6 p.m. Tuesday, April 13.
And the Museum is also holding a book-signing with Morro Bay native son, Joe Dunlap, author of the historical picture book, “When Morro Bay Went to War,” available at the Maritime Museum.
Dunlap will be at the Maritime Museum from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, April 1 to sign copies of his book.
Dunlap will talk about how WWII transformed the waterfront and set the stage for the tourist destination it is today. Copies of the book will be available at the book signing.
