Do You Vegan? Check out Veg Net Bend's Upcoming Events 

Vegans congregate at Check out their upcoming events here.

As much as I try to have my finger on the pulse of the food scene here in Bend, I have to admit I haven't been that aware of vegan offerings. Honestly, it wasn't until I talked to the folks from VegNet ( did I realize there was a viable vegan community in Central Oregon. I assumed, ignorantly, that the lack of vegan-only restaurants meant all the vegans were living it up in Portland, Seattle and Eugene.

Obviously, this is untrue and there are quite a few vegans in the high desert. And while there isn't a vegan-only restaurant, there are many spots, including Chow and Cafe Yumm!, that cater to vegans. And the vegan population has been congregating online at and organizing events for information and food sharing. If you're anti-meat and dairy, a sometimes vegan or just a bit vegan-curious, you'll want to check out their upcoming events:

  • Jackalope Grill's Women Tasting Wine is Awesome this Month

    Sometimes Bend is flush with dining events, making me wish I had buckets of cash to blow on food and wine. Actually, I pretty much always wish I had buckets of cash, but sometimes the desire is especially great.
