3 Ways to Boost GH Economy During State Shutdown

Welcome to Day 4-ish of The Great Washington State Shutdown.


It’s no secret that businesses and employees are hurting more since Gov. Inslee issued his March 23 Stay Home/Stay Healthy order. Especially hard hit are “non-essential” businesses like bars, night clubs, and restaurants. (Here’s the guv’s list of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers not impacted by the order. In case you’re wondering.)

We don’t do bars or night clubs. But we do do restaurants. Accordingly, here are three “Kid-tested, Mother Approved” local eateries that could no doubt use your consumer dollars right now. All are still open for take out as of this writing. As in, call it in. Pick it up. Eat at home.


So consider boosting the Grays Harbor economy with your bucks by ordering take out or “curbside delivery” from one or all of the following (in no particular order):


Give ‘Em A Boost!

  1. Mazatlán, Aberdeen

Best Mexican food on the Harbor! You can’t go wrong with their chile relleno or enchilada combos!


720 W Wishkah St, Aberdeen, WA 98520 ·

  1. Westport Winery – Aberdeen (on the way to Westport)

‘Westport Winery is currently offering curbside delivery to guests who have ordered and paid for wine, spirits, packaged foods or gifts from noon to 5pm daily. Call 360-648-2224 to pick up your wine club selections or request them to be shipped to your home or business.’

1 S. Arbor Road, Aberdeen


  1. Al’s Humdinger, Hoquiam

Best onion rings in town! Still open for take out.

Note: I was going to add The Salmon House in Quinault. But they are “temporarily closed.”


Exit Questions:

  • On Wednesday Gov. Jay signed a bill allowing sports gambling, “but only at tribal casinos,” when every other Tom, Dick, and Harriet in similar industries are shut down. Why do you think that is?
  • Earlier today, Gov. Inslee called for a “WWII-like” response to the China virus/Wuhan flu/coronavirus. What do you think this means?
  • Pre-gubernatorial order, some ignored the guv,, on staying home. They’ll probably ignore Monday’s order, too. So now what?
