Thanksgiving Day Dining

From casual to non-traditional, these are some spots giving people the day off from cooking

Brown's will still be making custom orders, including Thanksgiving pies

San Simón Open Downtown

“Sophisticated debauchery” in downtown Bend

El Sancho Breaks into Barbecue

Food cart features smoked meats such as pulled pork, brisket, turkey breast and beef sausage, along with true Texas-inspired sides
There's a new food cart in town, but you'll probably recognize the faces behind the Austin-style barbecue project. The folks at El Sancho have recently opened Runaround Sue Barbecue, which made its debut in early October at the Boss Rambler Beer Club.

Hojicha! Matcha Gets Toasted

Brown green tea trend coming... we hope...
Ho-gee-cha. Did I say it right?

Riff Cold Brewed Wins Big at Bend Venture

The $85,000 investment allows Riff to keep innovating, using previously-disregarded pulp
