My Dog is My Child Syndrome

Six ways to know if you've been infected
Note: I write this article in jest. I don't currently have a pet because my landlord won't allow it... but I surprised myself on a recent river multi-day when I couldn't help adopting two river dogs and actually was joyful when they were wet and dirty parading around my raft in circles for most of the trip.

If You're New Here: Bend Breweries

Despite the Bend Ale Trail, some breweries are still below the radar
Some breweries and certain beers are completely engrained in the Bendite lifestyle. Even if you arrived in town today, you've assuredly enjoyed a Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA or a Black Butte Porter (which make up a sizeable chunk of the brewery's roughly quarter-million-barrel annual production.

2021 Best of Central Oregon

Rising from the ashes: As tough times continue, join us in celebrating these local winners!
When we devised the theme for 2021’s Best of Central Oregon issue some months back, we imagined a world where the pandemic was truly starting to be behind us—where the community would be celebrating the return of a more carefree way of life. The phoenix—which we employed for this year’s theme—is, of course, a classic symbol of rebirth, of walking through the fire and re-emerging as a better version.

Intro

Ready to Rock

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.

Rookie Food Cart of the Year ▶ [with video]

NorthFresh Sushi has locals in Tumalo and beyond coming back for more
Jeff Berneski has a giant panda head stashed at his food cart in Tumalo, and when we visit, he's insistent we let him snap a photo or two of him wearing it. Good thing the Source Weekly loves goofiness of that and other varieties—so much so that the panda head graces the cover of this week's issue.

The Leaflet — Spring 2021

Highlighting an emerging and ever-changing industry
Conjure the tune and sing it with me: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” The staff here at the Source Weekly loves putting out this fine issue-within-an-issue you hold in your hands. We might even wager that it’s our favorite time of the year.

Women of the Year 2021 ▶ [With Video]

A note from our editor: Last year, the Source Weekly—which has long had a Women's Issue coinciding with International Women's Day—joined forces with the Bend Chamber's Women of the Year awards, for one giant event.

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).
