Welcome to the Downtown Bend Newsletter, News from the ️heart of Bend!
With winter reminding us its not quite spring yet, we are excited to see the sun make an appearance this weekend. With Deschutes county moving into moderate Covid risk level, we are daydreaming of a fun summer. As we move into spring and summer be on the look out at all your favorite restaurants for seasonal menu changes, as well as winter clearance sales at our local retail shops and boutiques.
As the streets start to fill with tourists and visitors, we always love to remind people, be kind, think about how you would want your family to be treated while they are visiting our amazing town. As Bend grows and expands, we like to remember to think small and shop local, small business are the lifeblood of Bend and what make it so unique and fun!
This week our favorite spot to grab a drink Deschutes Brewery. Nothing beats sipping on a cold pint of Neon Daydream “it is as yellow as the sweltering sun, refreshing as a dip in the pool and as hazy as the heat waves”, and there is no better place to enjoy this Hazy Summer Ale, than on the newly built patio.
We’ve also been loving Beach Hut Deli, with the sun out and a great patio view of the Brooks promenade, it’s the perfect place to crush some sandwiches and soak up the heat. Our favorite is the ‘Shark Bite’ with ham, Swiss, cream cheese, Bulls-Eye BBQ sauce and bacon, its hard to ask for much else!
