We're just 9 days away from Halloween. If you have a child under 12, make sure to send us their costume photos for our virtual costume contest, and if you're over 12, enter to win by competing in our Downtown Dares! Plus, we've got a plethora of lovely Halloween home decor ideas - come stroll downtown and see all that we have to offer.
This week we'd like to recommend Barrio's Jibarito (fried plantain sandwiches with tajin, Colorado sauce, guacamole, and your choice of pork or yam). Mmmmm, delicious goodness! For this week's featured cocktail, we'll have to go with J-DUB's Yard Sale Palmer (Oregon Spirit Bourbon, peach liqueur, topped with lemonade and house-brewed ice tea). A visit to enjoy these places in Downtown Bend won't soon be forgotten.
Plus, for some Fall self-care, we suggest a massage at aos Wellness Spa on Bond Street in Downtown Bend. Their massage sessions are therapeutic-based treatments with techniques specifically unique to aos Wellness Spa.
