Shuffle your truffle to Astoria


Astoria received some national attention media again, courtesy of “The Goonies” and Huffington Post Travel in a blog post by Roadtrippers ( All of the North Coast Goonies haunts are mentioned, and most are pictured, even Cannon Beach. So is the Iredale Shipwreck (which has nothing to do with the Goonies, but be that as it may). Chunk, doing the truffle shuffle in Astoria, is pictured in a screen shot from the movie.

Better yet, in a move that must have given the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce goosebumps, in large print at the end of the story, the writer urges folks to hasten to Astoria for the Goonies 30th reunion in June, which “involves costumes, beer and the world’s largest truffle shuffle!” Batten down the hatches.
