Oregon Spring Skiing, Snowboarding, and Sun

Oregon Spring Skiing, Snowboarding, and Sun

It would be an understatement to say we’ve had a great winter here in Bend Oregon. So I won’t say it. Instead I’ll say: I love snow and winter so goddamn much and this past winter in Bend has been like the best thing ever and, thankfully, it ain’t over yet. That’s because right now Oregon spring skiing is off the charts. Which charts I’m not sure, but it’s off them without a doubt. Whether you grab a spring pass at…

Moving to Bend? Tell Us What You Want to Know About Central Oregon Living.

Here at the Eternal Beginner’s Guide to Bend, we decided it was about time we gave you an update, or at least another opinion or two, about Central Oregon living. Because this can and does change on the regular, we’ve also decided to deliver it to you as it comes, in fits and spurts (multiple, smaller blog posts and pages), rather than just one static statement. Hm, we’ll start with that as a through-thread: living in Bend is not a statement….

Your New Best Friend: Debbie Fred of Paleo Eats

Your New Best Friend: Debbie Fred of Paleo Eats

Since the BGTB blog is, in part, about supporting the people, places, and businesses of Bend Oregon that we would bring home to our mothers, it doesn’t hurt that Paleo Eats owner Debbie Fred is as sweet as a pie sourced from locally grown fruits, honey, flour, and eggs. Maybe you know her name from local PTA involvement, or from local fundraising efforts for someone in the Bend Community who had cancer or some rare disease or just lost their…

East Side Bend Story

East Side Bend Story

Everyone and their mother wants to live on the “Bend Westside.” Contrary to popular belief, however, East Side Bend is a gem all its own. But shhh, don’t tell too many people. We intend on keeping it real over here in East Side Bend for as long as possible. People, places, and house prices included. *** I love the Chase Bank branch on Greenwood Ave, near the REgroup Thrift Store (benefits: Hospice, Bend Spay & Neuter, & Together for Children) and…

What’s In the Bag, With Jason Rhodes of Palate (An Exquisite Bend Coffee Bar)

On a recent Friday afternoon, around 4:30, Jason Rhodes of Palate was deep in conversation with someone over the back fence at Palate. (Palate = only the most exquisite Bend coffee bar; lovingly owned and operated by Jason Rhodes and his rad partner, Jodi Groteboer.). I waited some breaths while Jason finished up his exchange. We were to have a casual chat and photo session for what would be the (eternal) Beginner’s Guide to Bend’s first installment of What’s In the Bag?, wherein…
