Let's see. Bend is a tourist destination. So... Kill the geese. How about T-shirts with this reassuring message front and back? No poop danger here. Oh, except dog poop. And those deer! And cougars! And juniper trees! Nuisances all. Let's just level the place (all those rocks!) and make a nice level golf course.
We could send out tourism ads letting folks know that Nature is Dead in Bend. That will bring them. Or?
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.
