Happy Hour Guide—Summer 2016 | Happy Hour Guide | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Happy Hour Guide—Summer 2016

comment

The advent of summer is a time for joy. The sun returns with heat and calls on everyone to drop everything and run into the great outdoors. But there is the rub. How many of us can heed the sun’s call and unchain ourselves from the work a day world that keeps us indoors? When we do finally cut the tether to a world that provides our daily bread we need an infusion of happiness quickly because it will only be too soon before we have to return.

That is why this happiest of hours means so much to us. Everything slows down and the cold beverage transports us to a place where we can grow close to friends we don’t see as much as we should. A cool elixir reinvigorates our social roots in a way no “social” media can and we begin to tell tales that inspire us to carry this Happy Hour forward.

To aid in your happiness we have collected the best places to enjoy your hour of joy. Whether you like your whiskey neat or your Cosmo purple this guide will send you to the right spot for your getaway. We recommend closing your eyes, opening a page at random and finding your happiness with a quick drop of the finger. Get out there, explore a new happy spot and let us be your guide.

Cheers!
