  • They've Got Us on Their List

    On Feb. 4, 2008, the San Francisco Chronicle ran a story in which the following was stated: "Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of rail cars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees."

  • Blacksmith is Back: Finding comfort in fine dining

    A glimpse of the New Look Blacksmith.After a total remodel in which a new illuminated alabaster bar greets diners, Executive Chef and co-owner Gavin McMichael has updated the Blacksmith's menu, honed the service and revamped the interior to bring a fresh mix of modern and rustic touches to the Blacksmith's solid "new ranch comfort food" foundation. The menu is a bevy of seemingly lowbrow dishes like cheese steak, pot pie, corn dogs and meatloaf. Once the dishes arrive it is evident that the play on words is the only lowbrow thing about this meal. The Blacksmith Cheese Steak is a melt-in-your-mouth combination of beef tenderloin strips on a crispy crostini, caramelized pearl onions, wild mushrooms, leeks and a creamy potato sauce infused with truffle essence all topped with shaved Tumalo Farms Pond Hopper cheese - not exactly the greasy deli sandwich popular on the other coast.

  • Blues to the Bone: Hillstomp reminds us why we dig the blues

    They've got the bluesman strut down nicely.Henry Kammerer of Portland's gritty blues duo Hillstomp is trying to explain why and how he and his bandmate John Johnson play the blues and after hitting some dead ends: He remembers a quote from Keith Richards. In an impressively accurate impression of the Stones axe man's swaggering, drunken-sounding British accent, Kammerer mumbles a few lines about blues being embedded in our collective bone marrow. After some digging I was able to find the precise text of Richards' quote: Blues is one of the most fascinating forms of music I know, and I listen to a lot of styles...It's in our bones. 'Cause probably we all come from Africa. We just went north and turned white. But if you cut anybody open, bones are white and blood is red, man. It's kind of deep, you know? And I think maybe it speaks to us in that way. Ancient bone marrow responding to the source.

  • Double Bay Area Goodness

    With three appearances in Bend within the last year, Hot Buttered Rum is in danger of being mistakenly added to our roster of bluegrass bands - and we wouldn't complain if they did join our team. The San Francisco acoustic-that-sounds-electric band is teaming with fellow Bay-Area roots musicians The Waybacks for a co-headlining tour. Since our municipality has showed respect for both acts, it makes sense that the tour is making a stop at the Domino Room.
