Hola! Sunriver is Open | Bent

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Hola! Sunriver is Open

Hola! opens a new Sunriver location.

Posted By on Wed, Mar 30, 2011 at 5:03 PM

It was a Monday night, but that didn't stop busloads of Bendites were shuttled down to join Sunriver snowbirds to open the latest Hola! location in the space formerly occupied by Trout House. Fans of the Eastside and Old Mill locations arrived in droves thanks to co-owner Marcos Rodriguez's Facebook post.

The new location brings the same distinct flavors of Peru and Mexico, this time with an emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients. For those devoted to longstanding margarita favorites including the (I'm glad it's not local) Red Cactus margarita, fear not - the bar menu and margarita service (a half-full shaker comes with every margarita) remain the same. Other highlights include my first taste of Chef Jose's Paella, which combines fresh, flavorful seafood with perfectly seasoned rice, and heroic bartender, Gene, jumping behind the bar to mix margaritas during the overwhelming influx of Monday night arrivals.

The ribbon to tie the whole evening together? Live music featuring a female Latin singer who was as beautiful as she was talented. Here's to a great reason to say hello again to Sunriver. Or should I say Hola?
