Ménage Trois | Beer & Drink | 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.

Ménage Trois

It's sweet and innocent and endearing to see two people connect - even when they are at their most awkward. Typically, the man will spout witty one-liners and buy his love interest fancy cocktails while she smiles and coos while twirling her hair. But on rare occasion, there is a train wreck happening on the other side of the bar, so horrendous that you are afraid to watch - but you do to ensure the safety of those involved. It is the ménage trois. A troubling result of human ingenuity usually involving one douche bag of a man and two writhing women who need more attention than a newborn baby. It never fails that the beginning of their evening will be spent laughing and having a jolly time, but as the witching hour approaches the daunting moment when they all take off their clothes and hang out together in one queen-sized bed, the tension thickens. It is at this point that the barbaric sexual innuendos cause each person's insecurities to fume into embarrassing outbursts.


When you have announced to the world that you are going home with two people, there really isn't anything that you consider poor behavior. Taking turns making out will ensue, and little moans and grunts will be exhaled. It is only when the bartender tells you that the corner freak show needs to stop and find a new home that the magic ends and you realize that you'd hate for one person to see your stretch marks - but now you've committed yourself to two.
