Tonight, we hit up the Art Hop in downtown Bend.  Basically, it's First Friday for the art galleries and all the cute stores stay open late.  Every store had a guitar player or trio playing jazz.  Stopped in a gorgeous shop, Bend Bungalow LLC.  They have beautiful arts and crafts style items such as posters, clocks, lamps and more.  We also stopped in at Mockingbird Gallery and chatted with artist William Pickerd, who makes delicate alabaster bowls with wood trim.  He worked in Kodiak, Alaska for 12 years as a commercial fisherman.  Super nice guy.

Dinner at Deschutes Brewery.  I had the Cubano, which is pictured below.  The side salad featured shaved fennel and fresh cranberries!  Spencer Shroyer... you would LOVE this sandwich!
$12 Cubano with side salad

Emil had a French Dip.  Both were excellent, however the pretzel appetizer was FANTASTIC.  Here is the simple description from the menu: 

With a Creamy White Cheese Dipping Sauce Ringed with our Black Butte Porter Stone Ground Mustard

I highly suggest ordering one pretzel for each person.  You won't share.

  1. I concur - I would most definitely love that sandwich! We miss you up here - but are glad you're having a good time (and enjoying plenty of good food and drink).
