  • The Bridge Victory

    Well, it finally happened! Last night by a vote of 5 to 2 in favor, we now have the "Peace Bridge of Bend!" I want to thank all of you for helping to convert this "loony idea" into a symbol for peace. When you have a chance, take a stroll downtown and head for the Portland Avenue Bridge.

    Holiday Show with The Erins friday 26 You know what? It's pretty nice to have the Erins back in town, especially around the holidays. For this day-after-Christmas show, which is part of Parrilla's Winter Music Series, expect both Erin Cole Baker and Erin Zurflu to spread plenty of holiday cheer-or whatever sort of cheer you like best. A stalwart of the local music scene before heading out east, the girls (both of 'em) are back in town and this should be a don't-miss show for their loyal following. 7pm. Parrilla Grill, 635 NW 14th St. Milk - Special Showing friday 26 At least one Source writer has already seen this film, and from what he has to say, it looks like all of the Oscar buzz surrounding the flick is warranted. The film opens in Bend on Christmas day, and is followed by this special showing to benefit the Human Dignity Coalition. Before taking in killer performances by Sean Penn and the rest of the film's star-studded cast, you can participate in a silent auction to help the HDC. 3pm Friday, Dec 26. Pilot Butte 6, 2717 E Hwy 20. 317-8309.

    Micah Wolf Beyond The Shores It's easy to compare Maui singer/songwriter Micah Wolf to the likes of Ben Harper and fellow Hawaiian Jack Johnson, but in terms of social awareness, Wolf has branched out on a path uniquely his own with his latest CD. This surf-rock acoustic artist also happens to call Bend his second home (look for shout-outs to Reed Thomas Lawrence and the Rage people in his liner notes).

  • Year End Blowout: How to properly dispose of 2008

    Another New Year's Eve is on its way, bringing with it an array of nightlife options for you to pick from. It's nice to have choices on the one night in which you are allowed, nay, encouraged to let yourself go bonkers or bananas or both. And we'll give you plenty of choices but first, we'll cut to the chase...

  • Fuel Your Own Adventure

    KAREN & ROB'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE Lining up the Chandalar River in Alaska Have you seen "Fuel" yet? The Sundance award winning movie, currently playing at the Regal Pilot Butte, is about our addiction to oil and is getting rave reviews. One Bend couple has their own alternative to oil - chocolate. It all began 10 years ago with a four-month mountain biking trip from Seattle to La Paz, Bolivia. That experience was enough to hook Karen Holm and Rob Walker on human-powered adventure. In 2000, they built two wooden sea kayaks in Glacier Bay, Alaska and paddled 1500 miles to Lopez Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington. In 2004, they spent six months traveling 1850 miles of Chilean Patagonia by sea kayak. Last year, they dreamed up the Three Rivers Traverse, a 3-month, 1403-mile multi-modal odyssey. It all started in Skagway, Alaska. The plan was to canoe 4.5 miles to the Chilkoot Trailhead, pack up their 40-pound folding canoe and hike 33 miles along the old Klondike route to the headwater lakes of the Yukon River, re-assemble their canoe, paddle 1000 miles down the Yukon River and then up the East Fork of the Chandalar River to its source, traverse the Romanzof Mountains in the Brooks Range and follow the Okpilak River across the coastal plain of the Artic National Wildlife Refuge to the final destination of Kaktovik. Whew, now there's a run-on sentence.
