  • Your Local 21-Hour Pub: Caldera Grille comes to the aid of the hungry late night, early morning crowd

    Bend is no mecca for late-night food; a common issue for temperamentally urban mid-sized cities. Sure, our food scene is growing nicely in the cascade shadow of Portland - more food carts, more farmers' markets, reimagined restaurants - but where can we grab a bite to eat late at night? Downtown is relatively quiet on weeknights, dead on Sunday nights, but Caldera Grille, a nearly sleepless local pub and grille, however, is an exception, open 21 hours a day, seven days a week. You'll find it tucked amongst the dive bar strip on Bond Street between Minnesota and Oregon Avenue in the space previously occupied by Giuseppe's. The quiet of the front room is deceiving. Walk through the booth-lined dining room to find the heart of Caldera, a small bar festooned with elaborate woodwork and leading off to a well-populated asphalt back patio facing the parking garage.

  • Fat Tires To Easy Waters: Carl Decker takes tops at Worlds, Skyline mtb, and more!

    Coming off Super D mountain bike race wins in Wisconsin and in Bend early in the summer, local mountain bike racing pro Carl Decker headed down to Downieville, California July 9 and 10 to try for his second straight All Mountain World Championship - the true test of who's the best all-around mountain bike rider. The All Mountain Championship starts with a cross-country race followed the next day by a downhill race. "Once again, " Decker says, "Saturday's cross-country turned into a bit of a rout. The ball-breaker of a climb (3000 feet without shade) saw another rider and myself off the front with a sizeable gap. By the finish line I had just over four minutes on second place." "Winning Sunday's downhill was a personal goal I set last year. I don't normally set goals, but I had an axe to grind, as some people looked askance at a 29er cross-country bike winning in the realm of 6-inch travel trail bikes last year. Winning the downhill on the same bike as last year made me want it badly.

  • Horsing Around:Polo taking hold in High Desert

    It might seem counter intuitive that in the midst of the ongoing recession the newest sport take hold in the High Desert would be polo, the activity most associated with British Royalty. Regardless, the relatively young and locally based Cascade Polo Club is demonstrating that the sport has an audience here in Central Oregon.

  • Bend Craigslist Item of the Day

    The best thing about craigslist, may be the freedom to add in all kinds of tangential and often unwittingly amusing information that was once precluded by traditional classifieds, whose per line rate precluded such ramblings. Case in point, this listing for a fully loaded tournament bass boat previously owned by none other than Clyde "Balls" Brown and the additional note that the seller is also unloading his '86 'vette.
