TGIF: What to do in Bend this Weekend 12/19-12/21

Posted By on Fri, Dec 19, 2014 at 10:07 AM

'Twas the last weekend before Christmas and all over Bend, holiday events were stirring for family and friends. 
The microbrews were bottled by the brewers with care, in hopes that no Michelob soon would be there.

Train Man
HOLIDAYS—Perhaps at another time of year, a grown man playing with miniature trains to attract and delight young children would be creepy, but during the holiday season, it is downright classic and charming. 10 am-6 pm. Deschutes Library, 601 NW Wall. Free.

“A Christmas Memory” with Bob Shaw
STORY—Everyone’s favorite weatherman breathes life into Truman Capote’s semi-autobiographical story of childhood, holidays, friendship and loss. It’s a classic tale that touches on the all-important True Meaning of Christmas, delivered by the man who reminds us to “have a sparkling day in Central Oregon.” And, it benefits the Assistance League of Bend. It doesn’t get much more magical than that, folks. 7 pm. Tower Theatre. $18-$20.

friday 19
The Kronk Men
METAL—Formed in Terrebonne in 1999, The Kronk Men are an ever-mutating mainstay in the Central Oregon music scene. They’ve played every now-closed venue, every dive bar, every festival, blaring their loud-as-hell sludge metal. Warm up your neck for some serious head banging. 9 pm. Volcanic Theater Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $5.

friday 19
Santaland Diaries
THEATER—What began as a simple, but delightfully snarky essay read on the radio two decades ago, has become a holiday tradition. David Sedaris’ biting insights into the commercialization of Christmas, and his own off-kilter observations about family and festivities are as timeless as ugly sweaters. 7:30 pm. 2nd Street Theater, 220 NE Lafayette. $12.

saturday 20
BLUES—The raging punky blues duo that is Hillstomp will be banging out its driving backwoods rock on over-turned buckets, ragged guitars and through vocal distortion. While some bands that return over and over to Bend wear out their welcome, this duo is always met with clapping hands and stomping feet. 8 pm. Belfry, 302 E. Main St., Sisters. $8-$10.


sunday 21
Adult Cookie Decorating
PARTY—You’re never too old to decorate holiday cookies, but sometimes the company is too young to appreciate your…creative…designs. Whether you go bloody with gingerbread zombies or naughty with gingerbread pin-ups, it promises to be a delicious and debaucherous time with decadent cocktails and DJDMP spinning.
7 pm. Dogwood Cocktail Cabin, 147 NW Minnesota Ave. $5.

sunday 21
A Tower Christmas
HOLIDAY SPIRIT—It is as if your favorite uncle has curated the best Christmas event ever, with local dancers spunking up classics, local singers caroling favorite seasonal songs and KQAK’s Dave Clemens reading selections from “A Christmas Story” and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas. 7 pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall. $8-$12.
