Even though summer doesn’t officially start till June 20th, it feels like summer and we are ecstatic. Bad news is that covid cases have increased a little and unfortunately Deschutes County will be moving back into high risk for the next two weeks, while we work to get cases back down and vaccinations up.
As things slowly return to normal, we are excited to announce that First Friday Art Walks are back! May 7th will be the first art walk since March last year, so you can imagine how excited we are. Don’t forget your mask and love of all things Bend.
In addition to First Fridays coming back we will also be bringing back Oktoberfest! Things will be looking a little different this year and a little bit more fun, if you are interested in participating as a sponsor, or event host or maybe you have a couple fun ideas up your sleeve let us know. Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
This week our favorite spot to grab lunch was Pizza Mondo. With a rotating selection of pizza and beer, there’s no better way to refuel after a day of spring skiing.
For a great night cap and some entertainment, we recommend you head over to Duda’s for pool and shuffleboard. With a wide selection of beers and a full bar, there’s something for everyone.
