Spill The Wine For Bend Galleries 

For the past eleven years, since my wife and I became full time residents of Bend, we have enjoyed freeloading at the monthly art walks.


For the past eleven years, since my wife and I became full time residents of Bend, we have enjoyed freeloading at the monthly art walks. Have we ever bought art on these occasions?Maybe ten small Christmas gifts and one ceramic piece that I accidentally broke. All of which were probably of far less value than all the wine and snacks we've consumed.


We had an epiphany a couple of months ago. Don't we receive a lot more enjoyment each month from our First Friday walks than the cost of an inexpensive bottle of wine? We are so fortunate to have such classy galleries in our modest-sized city. I know the gallery owners are not raking in large piles of cash during these times of stingy discretionary spending. Recently, my wife and I have started taking one bottle of inexpensive wine to a different gallery each month. Needless to say, the gallery people are very appreciative. I would like to encourage all you fellow freeloaders to join us in showing appreciation and "sharing the grape" with your favorite gallery.

  • 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.
