BEND'S BAGEL SCENE IS NOTHING SPECIAL 

Mailbox

I love your annual "Best of Central Oregon" feature and I decided to test your tastes by purchasing some bagels from Rockin' Daves, your best choice for bagels in Central Oregon. Your praise, to me, was excessively effusive. I lived for several years in San Francisco,a couple of blocks from the New York Bagel Company. Rockin' Dave's doesn't come close: too fat, density fair, not chewy enough. Baking them with bacon, cheese and other items is popular nowadays but doesn't do anything for these bagels. I prefer Big O's bagels though they too are nothing to write home about. However, when it comes to pizza, the choice of Pizza Mondo as "Best" is dead on accurate. Pizza Mondo's pepperoni pizzais as good as anything I've eaten anywhere,even Naples, where the pizza was allegedly invented. Pizza Mondo is a treasure.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
