Welcome to the Downtown Bend Newsletter, News from the ❤️️ of Bend! With the sunshine on the rise and Covid on the decline, there has never been a better time to get out and enjoy the historic heart of Bend. We are particularly excited to start enjoying all the lovely patios around downtown without four layers of winter gear on!
This week our favorite spot to grab drinks is Velvet, with a cocktail list that will inspire you to try something new! We long for the days when their signature group drink, ‘The Barrel’ is available again. However, for the time being we have been enjoying the sweet blend of maraschino liquor, fresh squeezed grapefruit affectionately known as the Hemmingway Daiquiri.
Searching for a great new spot to grab a delicious and healthy snack, look no further than Blissful Spoon. You can find many of their products in your neighborhood grocery store, for an even tastier selection of scrumptious bites, swing by their new to the downtown location right off of Newport Ave.
