Picks 8/31-9/7 

Thursday 1

Sip Summer Wine Down

DRINK—Sip invites Bendites to "wine" down at its second annual customer appreciation night that features deals on food, wine and beer to the backdrop of live music. Precious Byrd, MOsley WOtta and Jive Coulis will perform and we can guarantee that the wine will be flowing. // 5-10pm. Sip Wine Bar, 1366 NW Galveston Ave., Bend. Free.

Thursday 1

George Winston

SWEET PIANO—If you need a way to slowly, mellow-ly slide into the pre-weekend, this is it. Jazz and R&B-inspired pianist George Winston brings his mostly-solo show to the Tower Theatre to perform his self-described rural folk piano sounds. // 7pm. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St., Bend. $33-56.

Friday 2

First Friday—Shayleen Macy & Courtney Holton

LOCAL ARTS—Astir Agency works to evoke change through design and this First Friday is shaping up to be one inspiring event. Artists Shayleen Macy and Courtney Holton will present their work, with proceeds from Holton's art sales donated to the Warm Springs Community Action Team. Help build a life-size zebra out of paper maché, hear zero energy stories and more. // 5-9 pm. Astir Agency, 115 NW Oregon Ave., Suite 30, Bend. Free.

Friday 2 & Saturday 3

The Little Woody

BOOZE FEST—The only thing better than a beer and whiskey festival is a barrel-aged beer and whiskey festival. Craft wood-aged beers and small-batch rye whiskeys and bourbons abound in one of the most delicious events you will ever discover. In a brilliant bit of incentive, the event has $5 entry for designated drivers. // Friday, 5pm-10pm; Saturday, noon-10pm. Des Chutes Historical Museum, 129 NW Idaho Ave., Bend. $12-$32.

Saturday 3

Maragas Winery Grape Stomp

PURPLE FEET—Remember that episode of "I Love Lucy" in which an awkward grape-stomping dance devolved into a fight between Lucy and her Italian "friend"? This event will be nothing like that – besides the grape part, of course. Crush some grapes – and then drink the spoils of last year's effort. There will also be music, contests and more. // 11am-6pm. Maragas Winery, 15523 SW Hwy 97, Culver. $10, kids free.

Saturday 3


ROCK—This band may have started out drawing a Christian-rock audience, but their songs are far too catchy to be limited to just that one genre. Check out their folk-pop, Americana and classic rock tunes at Les Schwab and decide for yourself. // 6pm. Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 SW Shevlin Hixon Dr., Bend. $36-53.

Saturday 3

International Vulture Awareness Day

BIRDS—Scavenging raptors are more vital than vile to our ecosystem, but are vulnerable to lead and other toxins. Meet a vulture up close at the High Desert Museum and learn more about these fascinating creatures, how they keep our environment healthy and how you can help them. // 3:30pm. High Desert Museum, 59800 S Hwy 97, Bend. Free with admission.

Saturday 3 & Sunday 4

Sunriver Marathon for a Cause

MARATHON—It's always so much easier to run a marathon when there's a good cause to rally around at the finish line. The event consists of the qualifier for the Boston Marathon, a half-marathon, a 5K and a kids race. Since the event's inception, organizers have raised over $90,000 for breast cancer treatment. Run for the cure. // 7am. Sunriver Resort, 17600 Center Dr., Sunriver. $15-$105 entry fees.

Tuesday 6

Moon Mountain Ramblers

JAMGRASS—The Moon Mountain Ramblers are one of Bend's oldest and most beloved bands. Its mixture of jam-band riffing, old-school bluegrass and deep mountain Americana makes for one of the best live bands Bend has ever produced. This show at GoodLife will also feature food carts, bocce and a bunch of dancing. // 6pm. GoodLife Brewing, 70 SW Century Dr., Bend. No cover.

Wednesday 7

Get Out More Tour

SEMINAR—Randy Propster from Backpacker Magazine is giving an in-depth seminar meant to inspire travel and adventure. One of the topics will include survival skills, so hopefully he'll discuss what to do if you don't have any. Because sometimes it's hard out there for city folk armed only with a GPS and a smile. // 6:30pm. Mountain Supply, 834 NW Colorado Ave., Bend. Free.
