What’s Your Favorite Bend Adventure?
I enjoy anything that involves playing outside. I especially love to white water raft and mountain bike. My favorite thing to do in the city of Bend is eat great food and enjoying the many great music talents that visit the amphitheater or any one of the smaller venues Bend has to offer.
What’s Your Favorite Dining Spot?
My favorite place to eat is Bend Brewing Company. I have been a fan of their fish and chips since BBC opened in 1995 and my son and I enjoy their wings as often as possible. I also enjoy the Pine Tavern for their fresh honey butter scones and fantastic meatloaf.
