GEARHART — McMenamins’ Sand Trap Pub in Gearhart is marking the 30th anniversary of “The Goonies” with special treats and showings of the Astoria-based movie.

The pub will play “The Goonies” in the Livingstone’s Room from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and participants can watch for free. The restaurant also will have a Goonies Gold Ale and offer Goonies food specials and Baby Ruth milkshakes — “because you can’t have a Goonies party without Baby Ruths,” manager Taz Davis said.

Scavenger hunts on the McMenamins property, 1157 N. Marion Ave., will be open to participants of all ages. Attendees also can get their McMenamins Passports marked with a Goonies stamp.

Originally, the pub created its Goonies Gold Ale for the 25th anniversary of the movie.

“Everyone’s got a little Goonie in them at some point and we like to celebrate that,” Davis said.

This year, for the 30th anniversary, they’ve expanded on that.

“For those of us that were younger when the movie came out, it kind of hit home and it had quite a cult following and it’s kind of grown from that,” Davis said.
