On the Street: We Ask What to Give and What to Get for Valentine's Day | Culture Features | 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.

On the Street: We Ask What to Give and What to Get for Valentine's Day

comment


It's here again people (or almost)—the day of hearts and love and perhaps a bit too
much chocolate. In honor of the coming of Valentine's Day on Feb. 14, we asked
people on the streets of Bend two questions:

What's your ideal Valentine's Day date? What's your ideal Valentine's Day gift?

Whether it's weed or simply another sweet, sweet year together, maybe seeing inside the heads of others will help you get some ideas for your own sweetheart. Or just inform you what not to do...
