  • Little Bites: Hideaway Gives a Shot to Southeast Bend

    After several months of interior makeover work, the neighborhood bar and restaurant reopened this past week as the Hideaway Tavern.
      I recently moved out of northeast Bend, a virtual wasteland when it comes to food and nightlife. (The last vestige of culinary civilization, Little Pizza Paradise, picked up stakes and moved to Cascade Village Mall earlier this summer.) I didn’t improve my lot much by moving to southeast Bend, particularly when it comes to nightlife. A few scattered pubs on Third Street and an outpost at Reed Market were an improvement, but hardly a sea change. To make matters worse, my favorite South side watering hole/pizza place and blues club, Grover’s, recently closed.

  • Tinseltown or Bike Town?

    A few celebrities that have made their way through the area.
      Rainn Wilson Claim to Fame: Had his stapler ensconced in Jell-0 by John Krasinski, aka Jim Halpert. Last Known Location: Universal’s sound studio Wilson, i.e. Dwight Schrute from NBC’s The Office, showed up in Sisters a few years back. A Northwest native who grew up in Seattle, Wilson keeps a relatively low-profile, but has made at least one cameo appearance on the Les Schwab stage in Bend. He walked out onstage with Portland’s The Decemberists and feigned as if to lead the band’s opening song. A few years earlier, Wilson riffed hilariously on Late Night with Letterman about a snake encounter at his Sisters-area home.  
  • End of the Line at ALEC?: Controversial corporate bill mill faces challenge from public interest group

    A conservative corporate-backed organization that connects lawmakers with industry insiders to craft ready made laws could lose its non-profit status that allows it to wine and dine lawmakers like Central Oregon’s Gene Whisnant.
      A conservative corporate-backed organization that connects lawmakers with industry insiders to craft ready made laws could lose its non-profit status that allows it to wine and dine lawmakers like Central Oregon’s Gene Whisnant. The American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, faces a challenge from the Washington D.C-based citizen advocacy group Common Cause, which alleges that ALEC is nothing more than a pipeline from corporate boardrooms to capitol steps.
  • Shotgun Wedding: Critics say new event rules open the door for abuse

      James Gindelsperger made a living flying through nuclear clouds as a member of an Air Force reconnaissance team that collected data on the Soviet arsenal. But that work didn’t prepare Gindelsperger for the storm of controversy that erupted when his neighbor put up a new barn and threw its doors open for weddings. The result, said Gindelsperger, was dozens of partygoers parading across a joint easement and bands and DJs playing well into the previously serene summer nights.
  • Road Warriors: Masters Nationals return to Bend, South Sister stampede and SUP stuff

    For the second consecutive year hundreds of mature bike racers will flock to Central Oregon for the USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships. This year it's a five-day affair that will kick off Wednesday, Sept. 5 and run through Sund
      For the second consecutive year hundreds of "mature" bike racers will flock to Central Oregon for the USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships. This year it's a five-day affair that will kick off Wednesday, Sept. 5 and run through Sunday, Sept. 9. Unlike last year, however, this year a “masters racer” is defined as those aged 35 and older. In 2011 the youngest master's category was the 30 to 34 age group. Other notable changes for this year's edition include new courses for the time trial and for some of the crit races. Rather than race another time trial up and down the broken pavement of Skyliner’s Rd., race organizers elected to hold the race outside Prineville on  the Crooked River Highway that will take racers upstream and into the Wild and Scenic Crooked River canyon.
