Spill The Wine For Bend Galleries 

For the past eleven years, since my wife and I became full time residents of Bend, we have enjoyed freeloading at the monthly art walks.


For the past eleven years, since my wife and I became full time residents of Bend, we have enjoyed freeloading at the monthly art walks. Have we ever bought art on these occasions?Maybe ten small Christmas gifts and one ceramic piece that I accidentally broke. All of which were probably of far less value than all the wine and snacks we've consumed.


We had an epiphany a couple of months ago. Don't we receive a lot more enjoyment each month from our First Friday walks than the cost of an inexpensive bottle of wine? We are so fortunate to have such classy galleries in our modest-sized city. I know the gallery owners are not raking in large piles of cash during these times of stingy discretionary spending. Recently, my wife and I have started taking one bottle of inexpensive wine to a different gallery each month. Needless to say, the gallery people are very appreciative. I would like to encourage all you fellow freeloaders to join us in showing appreciation and "sharing the grape" with your favorite gallery.

    Little Bites: Thanksgiving Dinner is Served! Restaurants that will cook for you on Thursday

    While many of us are going to be slaving over stoves, stuffing, brining or the always fun deep-frying our butterball turkeys this Thursday, there are options for those who don't feel like sticking their hands in the cavity of a 20-pound bird or cutting up the neck to stew some gravy. For all of you who would rather have a skilled chef prepare your fixins, here's a list of restaurants serving Thanksgiving Dinner, courtesy of Visit Bend.
