Little Bites - Here's What's New! | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Hops Harvest at Crux 

Crux Fermentation Project is putting on a parking-lot hops harvest in conjunction with the Central Oregon Beer Angels. Bring your crew down to Crux on Tue., Sep. 15 from 7am to noon and pick hops to your heart’s content. Participants who stick around to the end will get to throw their pickins into the Off the Fence hopback, ultimately contributing to the fresh hop ale that is made with the Cascade hops—picked right from the parking lot fence. Crux provides coffee, donuts and an ice-cold beer to cap off the harvest. The work is outdoors, making social distancing easy—but don’t forget your mask!

Chow Burger Arrives

A new burger joint has just opened its doors on the west side of Bend. Chow Burger is nestled in between The Lot and Hutch’s Bicycles, and is about as classically simplistic as it appears. The menu is minimalistic: a single, a double, fries and milkshakes. Chow Burger goes slightly above and beyond by offering a vegan burger and a lettuce-wrapped option.  

The fries might be the highlight of the no-fuss lunch stop: crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and paired with a lovely mayo-based fry sauce. 10/10 worth the price.
