As you venture out in the coming weeks, you’ll start to see more hustle and bustle around Central Oregon. One of my favorite things to do is spotlight our clients and help them grow their business and no better time than now as our Central Oregon Community reopens.
As the seasons change, so does your skin regimen. Visit Oregon Body and Bath in downtown Bend and find a lovely variety of products to treat yourself, a friend, or loved one. My favorite is Dani Natural Grapefruit Ginger Hydrating Lotion, made with all natural and organic ingredients. Stop in and say hi to Lauren, the owner, or visit their website to order if you live outside of Bend, Oregon or just want to shop in your pj’s. They are open Monday – Saturday, 11-3 and offer free local delivery, and curbside pickups.
Are your hands and nails dry from months of hand washing, house cleaning, playing a musical instrument, or planting flowers? Support and strengthen your nails with Nail Magic’s Botanical Nail Strengthener. Add extra protection with my favorite, Vanilla Almond Cuticle Oil and you’ll have strong nails and healthy cuticles.
Been cooped up too long? Need an outside, social distancing activity? Book a Cycle Pub tour with your family and friends (it’s kid-friendly too)! The Pub bikes are a great way to exercise outside and see the sites. Hungry? Cycle Pub tours also stop at Silver Moon Brewing so you can enjoy their spacious outdoor patio and pub menu.
Awbrey Glen’s NINETEEN restaurant has reopened and is still offering convenient takeout! Soak up the beautiful Cascade mountain and golf course views, while enjoying happy hour from 3:00 – 6:00 pm – a great way to reconnect with friends after months of quarantine. I’m excited to sit on the patio with my favorite dish…hand’s down their Cedar Plank Salmon is the best I’ve had around town.
Mama T’s pet products are local, family owned, and created to support your furry companions’ health and wellness. Whether your pet has aches, pains, arthritis, anxiety, or allergies, Mama T’s can help. Hear what Mama T herself experienced and how your pet can enjoy its best life.
Caffeine with a View
Thump Coffee’s York street location in Bend, Oregon, offers a warm cuppa joe, outdoor fire pit, and incredible views of the Cascade mountains. It’s my favorite way to start those lazy weekend mornings or any morning when you need a little inspiration. I recommend the smashed avocado toast with aleppo pepper and a spicy mayan mocha, made by the barista master, Kevin. For easy ordering, use the recently launched Thump app – download, order and enjoy!
Best Happy Hour in Bend
Pine Tavern is back open in downtown Bend! The McCormick family is dedicated to supporting local vendors and suppliers and is very generous in giving back to the community. For a limited time, they are offering happy hour all day, EVERY day (dine-in only). Curbside pick up is available and their menu can be found here. My favorite meal is steak salad with a lemon drop cocktail, enjoyed on the patio overlooking Mirror Pond on a sunny day.
Thanks for supporting our local community. Take care, be well, and may your day be Sublime!
