We'll be the first ones to admit when we're slacking. No Microcosmos online in Beer Town USA? That's our bad and we're going to start making up for it. And we're not stopping with the most fun column to research (when else do you get to drink beer on the job?). Beginning this week all of The Source's original content debuts on the web.
In addition to the long-running Microcosmos column, our newest rundown of Bend's lounge scene hits the paper and the web in the Lounge Lizard. This week, the Lounge Lizard slithered its way down to The Marilyn Room at Kayo's on Third Street. The lounge, which pays tribute to cultural icon Marilyn Monroe, received high marks in our ranking categories: ambiance, drink strength and Rat Pat Rating.
Headed to Eugene or Portland this weekend and looking for something awesome to do? We've got you covered with our weekly Out of Town column. Here's a sneak peek at this week's happenings on the other side of the Cascades:
