Les Schwab is coming back this summer with a new look and a partnership with Live Nation
We're in it now—and by "it," I mean the resurgence of live music and touring musicians/bands. While last year both the music industry and music fans took a hit (the last concert I attended was March 8, 2020), this summer looks to be different, and my recently purchased tickets to two shows at the Les Schwab Amphitheater would jive with that notion.

Food Cart of the Year

At The Tin Pig, the chicken is the star of the show
It is impossible for someone to mention The Tin Pig or even The Podski without me instantly craving a chicken sandwich. Whether it's the spicy Nashville Chicken, or the Sweet T that comes with pimento cheese and honey, foodies around Bend know The Tin Pig is the place to go for a chicken sando cooked to perfection... or maybe some hush puppies?

Neighborhoods: East Side Promenade

A bike route through the Larkspur neighborhood offers hidden adventure
From my front door on NE Lotus Drive, adjacent to Pilot Butte, there's a paved bikeable foot path that tracks all the way to Reed Market Road, straight through the heart of the Larkspur neighborhood—no stop lights and very few street crossings. Its two variations are known as Larkspur and Coyner Trails, however, I informally refer to the network as the Eastside Promenade (Prom).
