Crack open that bottle (or can) of suds and sit down with the Beer Issue, Benditos!
With the smell of mashing grain and boiling wort permeating our nostrils on the regular, it’s kind of hard to ignore that Bend maintains the nickname, “Beer Town, USA.” Love it or hate it; ignore it or embrace it, but beer flows here almost as freely as the mighty Deschutes. In this year’s edition, we’re bringing you a Beer Issue jam-packed with brewy goodness. Start on page 8 with Beer Goggles, a humorous take on how beer makes everything seem better, brought to you by local cartoonist William Friday. Move onto Welcome to the Empire on page 11, where our beer columnist Kevin Gifford covers the new beer mecca that is northeast Bend. On page 13, we talk with two longtime brewers about the state of beer in Bend in 2018, and whether we’re in a post Beer Town, USA. Hook up your out-of-town friends with the info on page 15, covering three great spots for a local Beer Crawl. Looking for some brews that might not be on your radar? Head to page 17 for our take on a few brews to try. Check out page 19 for a story on Pink Boots, the local chapter of a national women’s org, collaborating on a brew for International Women’s Day.

Namaspa runs on clean energy.
local social media thread concerning gun safety in Bend-La Pine Schools erupted this week, with some parents, teachers and other adults questioning the effectiveness of the 17-minute long protest scheduled for March 14 at schools nationwide. To recap, school walkouts were scheduled for the 14th as well as April 20, both at 10am. The first one will last a mere 17 minutes—each of the 17 minutes representing one of the students killed in the school shootings in Parkland, Fla., last month. On that thread, some adults questioned why students didn’t simply protest on days when school would otherwise be out, why they didn’t choose a better time, why they didn’t choose a “better” form of protest. Simply put, our students are fed up— and in a world of constant distraction, we should be impressed that our youth have organized in such a way, in schools across the country, to get adults to pay attention. After all, a protest is nothing in itself. It’s disruptive, yes, and that’s the source of some adults’ concerns. But a protest is also a conversation starter, and these two protests are doing just that. These protests are spurring an overdue conversation about gun safety, and about pressing our legislators to do more to tighten background checks, at the very, very least. Students did just that last week, when Sen. Ron Wyden, D-OR, held a town hall in Bend. These students are also helping push conversation about school safety. Since the most recent shootings in Parkland and subsequent threats at local schools, parents have been reaching out to their students’ schools to ask about what steps schools are taking to protect students in the event of an active threat. Your student’s school may have more safety measures in place than you imagined. Then
again, it might not. You’d do well to ask. There are also conversations arising about how students interact with one another—perhaps one of the most productive things coming out of this protest season. Instead of walking out, some students are choosing to “walk up.” What does that mean? It means that students— and the adults around them—are starting to realize that at least some of this nationwide school shooting problem can be attributed to some students getting neither the attention nor the mental health services they badly need. Fellow students can’t do much about the latter—that’s for our local, state and federal health authorities to address, and address seriously—but kids can address the issue of attention and misplaced priorities. Too many students are falling through the cracks, disconnected from their peers, and fellow students can stand up in big and small ways to draw attention to that. We support the students who choose to walk out this March 14 and April 20 (the anniversary of the shootings at Columbine High School)—but we also support the students who choose to “walk up” to other students to let them know they’re noticed, understood and are cared for. And, there’s no reason students can’t do both. Moving forward from a school shooting culture isn’t going to be completely solved by simple walkouts, nor should they be ignored as unnecessary. The conversation these protests are starting is important. That same gun safety thread also pointed out that the High Desert Friends of the National Rifle Association will be hosting a sold-out fundraiser Saturday, March 17 at 4pm at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes— just in case the adults have some thoughts on steps the NRA might take to keep our schools safer.

In the 3/8 story, “Grow Woes,” the percentage of people who supported legalization in the rural parts of the county was misstated. The correct figure: 47 percent supported legalization, not 47 percent opposed. We regret the error.

Trying to re interpret the bill of rights to suit your own personal beliefs is the same as twisting someone else’s words around to favor your point of view!! Assuming you know that the bill of rights does not apply to modern society because a musket used in the revolution is so much different from a modern gun never to be used in a fight for “independence” shows how closed minded a person can be ... like there are no wars going on anywhere in the world ... like no one in America is being shot by professional criminals ... or criminals don’t shoot other people in the perfect world that winchel lives in !!

THE WRONG TAKE-AWAY: IN RESPONSE TO PROTESTING AN APARTMENT COMPLEX IS ENERGY BEST USED ELSEWHERE (OPINION), 3/8 I was among dozens of neighborhood residents who recently attended the one hour Q/A session hosted by Evergreen Housing about their upcoming construction of a 187 unit, four story apartment complex. Admittedly, I was among the most vocal opponents of the plan but not for any of the reasons your Opinion section highlighted. In fact, of the dozens of neighborhood residents who
expressed concerns, virtually none voiced NIMBY protests about the apartment complex itself. Instead, the majority of neighborhood stakeholders were advocating on behalf of the entire Bend community about the poorly planned/zoned relationship between the number of cars that will be introduced to an already tight and vital transportation corridor. Contrary to your portrayal of the neighborhood residents harassing a developer for the apartments, we were collectively challenging the wisdom of zoning and development policies that encourage and accelerate private development over the infrastructure development needed to absorb thousands of new cars in Bend. Your Opinion letter was filled with dog whistle rhetoric about NIMBY-ism, respect for private property and West Side entitlement. My sense of the event was very different. I left feeling respect and appreciation for one group of Bend residents advocating on behalf of the entire community’s concern about the asymmetric relationship between private and public investment in how Bend grows. I suspect that regardless of where you live in Bend, if you’re in your in a car 2436 months from now anywhere around the Colorado River Bridge and proximate roundabouts, you are going to have plenty of time to reflect on this debate. —Will Warne
LETTER OF THE WEEK
Will: Thanks for sharing your perspective. I have to respectfully disagree, however, and say that an empty lot in that very central part of town is absolutely best used for this type of development, and it should be welcomed. Given its location, I’ll wager that a portion of those new residents will use the sidewalks and bike lanes—yes, existing infrastructure—for at least some of their trips—likely moreso than the people using the new hotels popping up in the area. With several grocery stores, recreation and other amenities within walking distance, I can think of nowhere else in Bend so ripe for more infill housing. And to be clear, readers, we’re not talking about “thousands” of cars. It’s an apartment complex of 170 to 180 units. Will, come on in for your gift card to Palate. —Nicole Vulcan, Editor

Over the past few months, I have noticed comments in newspapers about Free Range Cats. It is my time to give some input. Sure cats and dogs are a different beast. However, they are still animals and humans still own them. If a pet owner really loves their pet, they should actually care for it and not just assume it can use its own judgement. It is completely unfair that dog owners have to license and leash their dogs as well as “pick up” after them and cat owners have no responsibility or consideration for their neighbors. In all reality, cat owners are not the same type of respectable neighbors as dog owners. At no time ever do I want a cat roaming through our yard. There is a fat orange cat that trespasses on our property frequently and just waits patiently under our bird feeder waiting for a moment to kill a sweet songbird that actually belongs in the oasis of our yard. Then not to mention leaving behind something that should be in a litter box in the so-called loving owner’s home. Cat owners I ask you to pay attention to the fact that if you allow your cat to roam freely in Bend and let the horrible creature in my yard, it will come home with one less eye. Your cats have the right to stay in your home and your yard. Disgusted and Fed-Up People in Bend, I ask anyone that agrees with me to join with me and help remove cats from our quiet and private yards. Get your trusty pellet gun and aim for the eyes. Cat owners, if you are worried about what may happen to your cat once it leaves your yard, you should be. —Daisy Ryder

Suspect in Missing Woman Case Dies
By Chris Miller Sara Diana Gomez was reported missing on Feb. 19. Her former boyfriend, Bryan Penner, had been held in the Deschutes County Adult Jail for alleged contempt of court since Feb. 22. According to a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office press release, another inmate found Penner around 9pm Sunday. Rescue teams rushed him to St. Charles Medical Center, but he died around 8am Monday. His cause of death was listed by District Attorney John Hummel as suicide by asphyxiation. The DA says Penner was the sole suspect in the disappearance of Gomez. The Oregon State Police and Central Oregon’s Tri-County Major Incident Team are still investigating the cause of Penner’s death.
The Search for Sara Continues By Chris Miller Since the disappearance of Sara Gomez, Bend Police, Deschutes County Search and Rescue and local community groups have continued looking for the missing 24-year-old. A Facebook page has been created to help find Gomez. “Finding Sara,” a closed group with over 6,600 members, has coordinated search efforts, as well as letting members know about fundraisers in Bend and Redmond, with the proceeds going toward
Gomez’s family and search efforts. Saturday, March 17, the Bend Applebee’s is hosting a Pancake Breakfast Benefit for Sara Gomez from 7am to 11am. The $10 entry fee includes a drink, eggs, sausage and pancakes. “Unfortunately, as the search for Sara extended from hours, to days, to weeks, it became obvious we are searching for her body and she will not be found alive. With Penner’s passing, our chances of quickly finding Sara plummeted,” District Attorney John Hummel stated in a release Monday. “I encourage everyone in Deschutes County to report to law enforcement any suspicious tire tracks, earthen mounds, or other potential evidence they might see on their property. Sara’s family is counting on our community to bring her home.”
A New Warming Shelter for Bend By Nicole Vulcan
Homeless advocates in Bend have long lamented the fact that there’s no low-barrier warming shelter for people when the weather dips below freezing. At least, there wasn’t until recently. About three weeks ago, the Sagewood Sanctuary Warming Shelter opened inside Pfeifer & Associates, a facility offering drug and alcohol treatment support, housing services and other support for some of the area’s most vulnerable. Sally Pfeifer, owner of the building, says she saw a need in the community and decided to act.
Unlike other homeless shelters in the community, Sagewood is “low-barrier,” meaning people are not required to be sober or to participate in faith services in order to use the facility. The facility does not allow drug or alcohol use on site. The Sagewood Sanctuary opens at 8pm on freezing nights, closing again at 7am the following morning.
Governor Signs Gun Loophole Law By Nicole Vulcan
While not directly addressing the issue of gun violence in schools, students and gun safety advocates were among those on hand at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem March 5 to witness Gov. Kate Brown signing HB 4145, Oregon’s “boyfriend loophole” bill, into law. The bill bars convicted stalkers and domestic violence offenders from buying guns. “I’m proud to sign this bill, making Oregon the first state to take action to prevent senseless gun violence since the tragedy in Parkland, Florida,” Brown said. “Today marks an important milestone, but we know we have more to do. It’s long past time we hold the White House and Congress accountable. Now’s the time to enact real change and federal gun safety legislation.” SW See the full stories online, on the News page at bendsource.com.
Bridge Ban Dies
HB 4029 never made it out of the Ways and Means Committee during the short session

he possibility of a pedestrian bridge over the Deschutes south of town could still be alive, after HB 4029 died when the 2018 short Legislative session in Salem ended March 3. The bill, which would have barred any person, public body or local service district from building a bridge on the Deschutes River within certain areas of the Deschutes River Scenic Waterway, passed the House and was forwarded to the Ways and Means Committee, where it ultimately died.
“We have a responsibility to be good stewards of the river and the wildlife that depend on it.” — ERIK FERNANDEZ Bend Park and Recreation District Executive Director Don Horton said in an interview with KTVZ that the district’s goal is to find a way to connect people to the trail area south of Bend, and that a bridge is needed, but he’s open to a planning process that would bring in local agencies, including environmental groups. Julie Brown, BPRD’s communications and community relations manager, said a third-party facilitator will lead the effort to form a committee of individuals and groups that have expressed
interest in participating in the process. “We’re still hoping for a balanced solution that doesn’t involve weakening river protections or damaging wildlife habitat,” Oregon Wild’s Erik Fernandez told the Source. “We hope we can put the controversy of the bridge proposal behind us and find a trail connection that our entire community can be excited about.” Horton said if local stakeholders can find an alternative route, the district is open to ideas, according to KTVZ. Rep. Gene Whisnant, R-Sunriver, who sponsored a similar bill last year, and Rep. Knute Buehler, R-Bend, have both opposed any type of bridge in the area of the Deschutes Scenic Waterway. However, both are leaving the legislature following this session. Buehler is running on the Republican ticket for governor, while Whisnant has decided not to seek re-election. “We have only one Deschutes River, there is no backup river,” Fernandez said. “We have a responsibility to be good stewards of the river and the wildlife that depend on it.” “We look forward to a local conversation about how to best balance environmental concerns, recreation access, and connectivity,” Brown said. “This decision is too important to be taken from Central Oregon.” SW

A Q&A with two local brewers By Chris Miller
or our annual Beer Issue, the Source sat down with two of Bend’s OG brewers to chat about the state of beer in Bend, what they imbibe and just general beery-ness. Mark Henion is the brewmaster at Boneyard Beer, and Bobby Jackson is innovation head brewer at 10 Barrel Brewing. Source Weekly: Where did you get your start in the industry? Bobby Jackson: I started home brewing when I was in college at the University of Vermont. My buddy Conner and I were like, you can buy those kits for like $45, and so we ended up getting one. Right after we got it, we started [brewing] a whole lot, and I was finishing up my degree at school and didn’t know what I was going to do. There was a brewing school just south of Burlington, Vermont, the American Brewers Guild, so I applied to that. I went to that right after I finished school. And I had been working at a vineyard and going to the brewing school, and then I had an apprenticeship that I did at Otter Creek in Middlebury, Vermont, and then really just went from there. I got a job offer in Salt Lake City when I was finishing up my apprenticeship, so I did that and moved to Salt Lake, brewing lagers at Bohemian Brewery. I was there for five years. Mark Henion: I started brewing at Deschutes Brewery in July 1994. I started out keg washing there and kind of climbed through the ranks. It was a pretty fast-moving company when I got there, like people would change jobs every few months because they were growing really quick. I started right when their production brewery opened up, so I mainly worked down at the original brewery for a while and then I went over to the production brewery, and then after a few years they sent me to Siebel Brewing School, and then I became head brewer. SW: How long have you been in the business? MH: I’ve been in the business for 25 years. I love it, it’s fun. BJ: I’ve been in the business for 10 years. SW: How long have you been in Bend? BJ: I’ve been here for seven years. I moved up here to work for 10 Barrel. I had met the brothers [Chris and Jeremy Cox] in like 2009, and we kind of talked for a couple of years and kept in touch and just kind of hanging out and they made me a job offer in 2011 and I came up.
MH: I’ve been in Bend 26 years. I worked at Deschutes for nine years, then I went to Cascade Lakes for six and went over to the [Willamette] Valley for five years at Ninkasi, and then came back here. Actually, I worked with Tony [Lawrence] at Deschutes, so we’ve been friends ever since and kinda working back and forth together, and I just knew eventually I’d be coming back here. SW: What’s the state of the beer market in Bend? MH: I think it’s a little in flux right now. It’s definitely been a major boon for several years and I think everyone’s kind of feeling that it’s not really a good time to go out and expand. A lot of people are pulling back from major expansions because it’s a little… there’s a bit of a bubble and I don’t know if it’s going to burst, but it kind of feels like there’s a lot of pressure. I’ve heard a lot of different things. The craft brew movement—people are kind of going more local, more small. The little guys and stuff, so it’s kind of putting strain on the bugger guys. And then I’ve also heard just recently the new generations that’s coming up, they’re just tired of seeing their parents drinking craft brew all the time, so they’re just not drinking it as much. It went from like, macro brew drinking, to the craft beer movement, to the rebels back to macro brew— the whole PBR deal—back to craft beer. I think craft beer is a big thing, it’s a big deal, and I think it will continue to grow. It’s just where do those [new beer drinkers come from]. Are we pulling from the macro brew? It will be interesting to see. It’s definitely in flux, but I think everyone’s going to be all right. It’s like in the 90s, when we had a bubble burst, but back then it was a lot of people making really bad beer. So it was pretty easy to, you know—the people making quality product and were in it for the beer instead of the money all survived and did well—and the people who were just trying to, let’s get in here and make a buck, they just kind of went away. And I think now, there’s a lot of people making really good beer, so it’s a different scenario. BJ: Currently, I feel like it’s tumultuous and there’s a lot of stuff going on outside of the beer [industry] itself. Obviously, trends will always be trends. I feel like it’s a whole lot—not to make assumptions or anything—but I think it’s kind of like the same ebb and flow that we saw 10 years ago, where there were a lot of people making beer and at the end of it, the consumers are driving what they want and what they think is

The State of Beer in Beer Town, USA
good. I mean, there are more breweries now than there ever has been, by a lot. I think it’s good, you know, production is up across the country, the craft thing is as strong as ever. SW: How has the beer market changed? BJ: I feel like there’s definitely been an awesome focus on quality, and even since I started working here. Being able to find what works for you and making sure you can repeat that. And, taking steps to repeat that. I think something you might see with craft beer is variability. But we definitely have had a much stronger shift into the quality of our beers, not only flavor and aroma and the actual physical properties of it, but maintaining a quality, safe, long shelf life. Really, just making sure we’re just putting out quality products all the time. Our lab has grown from nonexistent to four people down there as well as like two other people managing and overseeing it all and alongside with the safety program that was nonexistent before. MH: It’s shifted, kind of like the main product. When I got into it, it seemed like dark beer was a big deal: stouts, heavy porters and stuff. And then it kind of went into the pale ale realm and now IPA is a big crazy deal and has been for several years. I like to think more refined beers like pilsners are kind of starting to show their face a little bit. I’ve always been a fan, that’s my favorite style. I think they really show the art of brewing; any defects are going to stand out heavily in a pilsner, where in a big stout or a big IPA, they’ve got hops and malts to cover up [mistakes]. SW: Do you think we’re in a post-Beer Town, USA? MH: I don’t think so. You see the Ale Trail. We see the Ale Trail coming through all the time. There are a lot of people that come here just to hit all the different breweries and do the tours. I don’t think we’re in post; I think we’re still in it. I mean, there are almost 30 breweries here. It’s crazy, 10 years ago there were six in Bend, Redmond and Sisters. BJ: I don’t think so, I mean Bend is one of those places that like, yes, beer is a draw, but there are so many other things that draw [people here] that beer goes hand in hand with, that I don’t necessarily think it’s a post-beer town. Our production is going up every year and has been since I started. Obviously, there are small places in town that are also growing, like Silver Moon has their offsite production now. Three Creeks has their offsite and some of the more mainstay breweries in Bend are growing as well, along with the new breweries opening up and opening pubs. Is the next Beer Town, USA just waiting to happen? You know, who knows, but I think people will still come here for the beer. SW: What beers do you drink? BJ: I really like Hamm’s, I love Hamm’s (Bobby leans back in his chair and laughs). I’m a big fan of [Boneyard] RPM, I think it’s a great beer. If I go out and they have it, that’s typically what I order. Clay [Storey] and Tony [Lawrence] are awesome. They were some of the first people I met when I moved to town. I actually carpooled up here with a buddy of mine to interview with 10 Barrel and he was interviewing with Boneyard, and Tony ended up taking us out for breakfast before we went back down to Utah. I think they make great beer and they’re just solid dudes. I really like Sunriver’s Hef, too. I’ve been buying a lot of that lately. It’s just great, it’s exactly what I look for in a Hef, and it’s quality and super well done. I like when I can get Kettle House Beers from Montana. They have Cold Smoke [Scotch Ale]; great beers. I really like lagers a lot. I brewed lagers exclusively when I was in Salt Lake City. I think they have a spot in my heart. Easy drinking, clean and complex at the same time. MH: Like I said, pilsner is kind of my favorite style— German style pils—I’m a big fan of that. It kind of depends on the season, I go through the whole realm. I like an IPA as much as the next person. Big stouts— Imperial stouts—for a nightcap or whatever. But I definitely say my go-to is a nice German pils. SW

The lazy drinker’s choice, considering the short walking distances, and still one of the most exciting and crowd-laden in the summer. If the weather’s nice, start at the patio of Bend Brewing Company (1019 NW Brooks) for killer views of the river and a wonderful variety of ever-changing IPAs and darker ales. Deschutes Brewery (1044 NW Bond) should require no introduction at this point, and it’s also a killer place for a fancy (and filling) dinner. But where to round out? The Commons (875 NW Brooks) is a relaxing cafe with an eclectic selection from pFriem and other Oregon favorites, while White Water Taphouse (1043 NW Bond) offers a much wider selection of everything the state has to offer.

Thanks to the Box Factory’s official opening two years ago, the Old Mill District now has a bunch of worthy drinking holes and some worthy mountain views to back them up. Crux Fermentation Project (50 SW Division) is the natural place to start. It’s where everyone starts, it seems, especially on the usually-packed evenings and weekends. And who can blame them? The patio, the food trucks, the in-house beer and food... few other places in Bend nail the whole package so perfectly. From Crux, proceed westward to Spoken Moto (310 SW Industrial), Bend’s only coffee shop, beer bar, and motorcycle repair shop. There’s not that much beer selection, but it’s a nice one, and there are more food trucks to the side. It’s a short walk from there to the Box Factory proper, featuring Atlas Cider, Immersion Brewing and The Brown Owl in one complex. All are worth a visit—Atlas for the seasonals; Immersion for the solid regular selection (and shiny tanks) and The Brown Owl for the awe-inspiring décor and the massive bottle and tap selection—plus a food truck that earned the status of the Source’s Food Cart of the Year in our 2017 Restaurant Guide. After all that, round out the day at Market of Choice (115 NW Sisemore), a supermarket with a great take-home food selection and an equally superb in-house bar, often filled with beer that can’t be found anywhere else in town.

s anyone who’s been to college (or just has some ribald co-workers) knows, the only thing more exciting than going out to a bar for some beers is going out to several bars at once for some beers. The idea of a pub crawl is nothing new. People have been doing them around New York and London’s subway systems for centuries. Locally, the Cycle Pub will even let groups pedal their way to a couple breweries and bars in one go, earning waves and/or “You go, ladies!” shouts from passersby as they do. But in a town with several times more breweries than grocery stores, one doesn’t need to rent a novelty 14-seat cruiser to enjoy a pub crawl. There are multiple options that are walkable for anyone in decent shape—or less than, depending on one’s beer gut. The breweries dotted around NE Empire Boulevard., as covered elsewhere in this guide, are just the latest neighborhood to draw attention among locals. Here are three more jaunts that anyone can easily tackle over an afternoon or evening—and be guaranteed to enjoy some of the best the entire region has to offer.
Sunriver Brewing Co.
A small set of blocks just south of downtown is packed with options, all centered around the original 10 Barrel Brewing (1153 NW Galveston), which reopened last week after a quick facelift. From the intersection with 13th Street, start at Primal Cuts Market (1244 NW Galveston), a full-service butcher with excellent sandwich deals and 37 taps of beer, cider and kombucha for drink-in or take-out. Brother Jon’s Public House (1227 NW Galveston) is another local institution, offering a small but well-curated set of taps and some excellent (and enormous!) meals. A block over is Aspect Boards & Brews (1009 NW Galveston), a skate/snowboard shop that also has lots of Bend beers, an inviting outdoor space facing the street, and an on-site food cart. Next door is Sunriver Brewing’s Galveston pub, whose award-winning beers are rivaling 10 Barrel’s in quality these days, and which backs it up with another great food menu. SW

Friar’s Festivus MONKLESS BELGIAN ALES 10.2 percent ABV 52 IBU | Belgian Quad Won Gold in “Flavored Beers” at the Oregon Beer Awards Monkless is Bend’s best kept secret—but not for long! They were just added to the Bend Ale Trail in May and recently received a license to sell their ales in Washington state. Their recently expanded eastside taproom is cozy, but they make the most of the space by breaking out the patio chairs in the summer and host food trucks every Friday and Saturday. Friar’s Festivus is a winter seasonal, as you may have guessed, but it’s too damn good not to mention. This dark Belgian is big and bold, with warming spice notes and a sweetness to boot. I’m pretty much exclusively an IPA drinker, with a Hefeweizen here and there in the summer, but I have to say I fell in love with Friar’s. I’ve become quite smitten with just about everything Monkless has to offer. If you’re looking for something lighter for those sunny days out on the river, try their Shepplekofeggan Belgian Witbier. At 5.4 percent ABV, you’ll be able to enjoy a few without needing to take a nap. Their Peppercorn Imperial Witbier may just turn me off of IPAs this summer. Fresh orange peel and coriander accents, double the IBUs of their base witbier and a myriad of spices—the flavor profile of Belgian ales is rounded out by yeast rather than hops like an IPA. It’s refreshing. Dare I say I’m suffering from hop fatigue? No, I won’t go that far, but Monkless is a welcome change of pace. Keely Damara Monkless Belgian Ales

Frontier Justice Coffee Stout THREE CREEKS BREWING 8 percent ABV 55 IBU | American Stout Won Gold in “Coffee Beers” at the Oregon Beer Awards
Bog Trotter Irish Ale BRIDGE 99 7.8 percent ABV 24 IBU | Irish Ale I discovered Bridge 99 Brewery when my kid was going to the Central Oregon Gymnastics Academy. I had heard of all the big breweries in town, but this one had so far escaped my radar, and I decided I needed to try it. I’m glad I did. The current space has a small tasting area, but will expand this spring with rotating food trucks and a fun, tented area to sit in. I had the beertender pull me a draft of their Bog Trotter Irish Ale, made with all Irish ingredients, including buckwheat honey, harking back to when the English blocked sugar from being imported to Ireland. The beer smelled good and tasted better. The honey’s sweetness on the nose didn’t transfer into sickly sweet when I took a sip. The beer has that traditional European ale flavor, not overly hoppy, but clean and delicious. I’m more of a porter person in the winter, but will definitely put the Bog Trotter high on my summer beer list. Bridge 99 has rotating food trucks and free popcorn. The brewery is hoping to have the expanded space ready for people to relax and enjoy its beers and food by June of this year. Chris Miller Bridge 99 Brewery

Mango Session IPA KOBOLD BREWING 4.4 percent ABV 52 IBU | IPA
This collaboration with Sisters Coffee Roasters packs a punch! Each barrel boasts 4 pounds of Sumatra beans, a whole slew of malts and Cascade hops. This is a beer that gets even better with age, as the imperial stout base starts to shine through the rich coffee flavor over time. You can find it on the “Wanted” taps at Three Creeks Brewing or you can pick up 22-ounce bottles to drink (or save for later, if you have the patience to age it—if so, I admire your grit). I recently visited Three Creeks Brewing for the first time and loved it. The interior is fun, with an Old West theme. A quilt hangs on a wall, bearing their name and logo (how cool is that?) The Sisters Movie House is just across the parking lot, making Three Creeks Brewing the perfect date night spot to grab dinner and a movie. Keely Damara
Redmond’s Kobold Brewing is easy to find—located right on the main drag in downtown, in an old shopfront. The small space serves Kobold’s brews as well as guest taps from other Oregon brewers. I’d never had a beer at Kobold before. I picked the Mango Session IPA. I’m not usually into sweet beers, but citric beers are in fashion, so I thought I’d give theirs a try. The taste was good, kind of like a mango-margarita-meets-IPA. It made me think of being in Mexico; all I needed was mystery meat nachos and I was there. The Mango Session IPA is definitely a summer beer. Light, crisp, and like most session beers, low on the ABVs so you can drink all day. Kobold serves Schatz Pretzel products, including pretzels and pretzel dogs. They also have free popcorn and Westside Taco Co. has a truck just behind their outdoor seating area that has a big wood-burning fire pit. Chris Miller SW

he morning following International Women’s Day, a small group of women gathered in a garage at Bridge 99 Brewery in Bend. I was expecting more pink, but I only spied a single pair of pink rubber boots on a tiny blonde lugging around 50-pound bags of malt. “We grow the barley—we plant it, we grow it, we harvest it and then we malt it,” says Sally Klann, co-owner of Mecca Grade Estate Malt. “So we do everything on site—we don’t contract other farmers.” Mecca Grade Estate Malt donated 135 pounds of malt to the Pink Boots Collaborative Brew Day, an event organized by the Bend chapter of the national nonprofit, Pink Boots Society. The organization aims to help women in the craft beer industry advance their careers through continued education. On March 8 and 9, over 200 collaborative beers were brewed by women worldwide in an effort to raise the profile of women working in the beer industry. Victoria Chaplin, lab manager at Worthy Brewing, started the Bend chapter in May 2017, along with co-worker Shae Maloney, a brewer and lab tech. They’re both relatively new to Bend and felt that Central Oregon was lacking a space for female brewers and beer industry professionals to network. “Tori and I started this last year and it was pretty small,” said Maloney. “There were only probably about four of us, four or five of us, that were part of it, and to now see that we are able to bring more females from different breweries around town and really bringing everyone together, you know, is really awesome.” “We’re kind of at a moment where I think women are really coming together to lift each other up,” said Chaplin. “It was just a good opportunity.”
These boots are made for brewing—a special recipe.
Chaplin says she expects that they’ll make $2,000 to $2,500 from the sale of their collaboration brew. Bridge 99 Brewery will donate all the money made from sales to the national Pink Boots Society organization. The funds will be used for scholarships and continued education programs for women in the industry. In addition to the malt that Klann’s farm donated, Deschutes Brewery donated yeast. Bridge 99 Brewery lent out its brew facility for the day, as well as donating hops and salts. Chaplin says the malt will create a “biscuit-y” flavor and aroma, hopefully with some graham cracker notes,
paired with the tropical notes from the yeast, adding mango and pineapple notes to the flavor profile. The idea is to create a unique, hoppy table beer. “If you’ve worked a 10-hour day and then you’re trying to have your shift beer and if it’s something really big, you’re like, I still have to drive home, make dinner, go grocery shopping— whatever,” said Chaplin. “So, something that’s well-rounded, complex and really drinkable is what we’re aiming for.” Interested in joining the Pink Boots Society? If you’re a woman and involved in some way with the beer industry, you probably qualify. Whether you’re a woman opening your own brewery, you’re currently employed, you’re retired from a career in the industry or you’re just starting out as a student in fermentation sciences, the Pink Boots Society wants you. The Pink Boots Collaboration Brew will be tapped April 7 at Bridge 99 Brewery. SW Pink Boots Society Beer Release Sat., April 7, 1pm-8pm Bridge 99 Brewery 63063 Layton Ave, Bend pinkbootssociety.org

VOLUME 22 ISSUE 11 / March 15, 2018 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
Natalie Closner, right, performs with younger
Lukas Nelson and his band bring a full-on show of funk, blues, country and rock to Bend By Alan Sculley
ukas Nelson has been releasing music and touring for nearly a decade now, but he’s treating the recently released self-titled album from his band, “Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real” as if it’s a second beginning to his music career. There’s plenty of logic to that thinking. The past few years have seen the band’s profile expand considerably, mainly through a pair of notable collaborations. After seeing Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real perform at Farm Aid in 2010, Neil Young befriended the group, and a few years later drafted them to be his backing band on “The Monsanto Years,” his 2015 album that blasted the use of genetically modified foods. The group also backed Young on the album tour. Young’s 2016 live album, “Earth,” was drawn from the 2015 “The Monsanto Years” tour, and Young and the group then resumed their collaboration on Young’s 2017 studio release, “The Visitor.” The group has also contributed to the soundtrack of a new Neil Young film, “Paradox,” and Lukas and his brother, Micah, will appear in leading roles alongside Young in the movie, which will be released this spring. “The Visitor” arrived alongside a fall 2017 album that united Lukas and Micah with their father, country legend Willie Nelson—“Willie Nelson and the Boys: Willie’s Stash Vol. 2,” an album on which the three Nelsons perform a selection of favorite country songs. Last fall also saw the release of the “Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real,” the group’s first album as part of a new contract with Fantasy Records. That affiliation has given the group the kind of recording budget, distribution and promotion that was never available for their earlier albums. Nelson, 28, knew the attention generated by the projects with Young and his father, coupled with the new record deal, meant a far larger audience. To that end, Nelson not only chose the best songs from a large pool of newly written tunes, but also cut new versions of several tunes that had appeared on earlier albums. “I just wanted it to be a lights-out record, something that really got a lot of attention for us, something that was accessible to a wide audience and that a lot of people would love,” Nelson said. “And we picked the songs that fit that
description.” Nelson, along with producer John Alagia, wanted to give the self-titled album a cinematic and more varied sound than on the three earlier Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real albums, which favored more of a riffy guitar rock sound. The opening track on the self-titled album, “Set Me Down on a Cloud,” is even more beautiful and spacious than the original version, and also gets a previously absent measure of gospel, thanks to the backing vocals of Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the duo Lucius. The songs “Die Alone” and “Four Letter Word” recall the chunky country rock and soul of J.J. Cale and early Eric Clapton, while the group’s country roots shine on the ballads, “Just Outside of Austin” and “Runnin’ Shine.” Funk, blues, country and rock all filter into the sprightly “Fool Me Once” and on “Find Yourself,” which features sassy guest vocals from Lady Gaga. Nelson met Lady Gaga during work on the much-anticipated remake of the 1976 movie, “A Star is Born,” which will star Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the roles previously played by Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. “I don’t know how much I can say (about the movie), but I know there are a lot of great songs on there,” Nelson said. “I wrote a lot of songs for the movie with her and on my own.” Before the exposure from that film arrives, Nelson and his band, which includes Tato Melgar (percussion), Anthony LoGerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass, vocals), Jesse Siebenberg (steel guitars, Farfisa organ, vocals) and Alberto Bof (keyboards), plan to spend a good deal of time touring. What can concert-goers expect? “We like to just make sure it’s a high-energy show,” Nelson said. “So we do a lot of the new record and the new material, and then toward the end we’ll throw in some real rockers from ‘Something Real’ (or the other albums) because there are a lot of fans that we have that love our old material, and we don’t quit playing that.” SW Jacob Blickentstaff

the gem she’s working with, Bandy credits design skills, combined with the ability to listen to a customer’s needs, as the recipe to her success. It was the jewelry business that sparked her next passion: painting. While hosting various artists in her shop for First Fridays, she realized she wanted to give painting a try. A move into a new house with a spare room already set up as a studio helped solidify the idea, and Bandy has never looked back. That was 12 years ago. While the two mediums might seem completely opposite, Bandy’s approach to each is similar. With jewelry, she begins with the gem and allows it to inspire her with its color and shape. When painting, Bandy completely covers her canvas in magenta and yellow as her base coat, allowing that to inspire what she paints over it—even allowing

How do you capture the feeling of a mountain in a ring? Or the magic of a dance in a painting? Somehow, Karen Bandy does just this. Whether through jewelry or painting, Bandy has the unique ability to capture movement and the feeling it projects. Bandy landed in Bend over 30 years ago after various stints from Southern California to Portland. It was in Portland that Bandy worked under a master jeweler, honing her craft and learning the ins and outs of the business before moving to Bend and opening her own shop. “I love redesigning and collaborating with a customer. Taking an old piece and making it new,” Bandy says. Inspired by

some of the color to come through. Her emphases, whether creating in 2D or 3D, are color, shape and lines, inspired by architecture and the natural world. The feeling of creating, for Bandy, is the same, regardless of the medium. “The difference is jewelry is so permanent and exacting, and paint is so feeling. It is totally different, like a little release.” SW

Amid a throng of local world-class brewers, these guys offer a home for those who want to brew their own In a town steeped in hops and yeast, one business, housed in a stately old church on Northeast Third Street, stands out as a beer mecca. If the largest brew selection in Central Oregon—located in the upstairs portion of the building— isn’t enough to satisfy your beery curiosity, perhaps the 15 rotating taps downstairs will offer something to your liking. Either way, owners of The Brew Shop/Platypus Pub, Jeff Hawes and Glen Samuel, invite you to stop by and check out the choices. If they don’t have it, they’ll try to order it for you. Hawes manages the Brew Shop upstairs while Samuel takes charge of the Platypus Pub downstairs. While not a home brewer himself, Hawes stocks everything to get the home brewer started, from the basic equipment to convenient starter kits. He recommends the latter for newbies who want to start brewing at home. “I have watched people do it and I was always interested in it. It’s kind of fun and addictive, really,” Hawes says. Even in the land of professional breweries, home brewing is still a popular hobby. “Once you get over the initial cost of the equipment, you can get a recipe dialed in to get a beer that you really want and really like,” Hawes says. Concerning trends and what’s hot in the brewing world, it’s still the hazy IPAs that are all the rage, according to

Love for the DIY Set CHOW Beer In honor of the Beer Issue, seasoned home brewers dish tips By Lisa Sipe 45 VOLUME 22 ISSUE 11 / March 15, 2018 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
Home brewing has always been a thing, happening long before commercial production, craft brewing and all the other hoopla. With as many beer choices as we have in Central Oregon, you might think a beer lover wouldn’t need to brew at home—but they do, for multiple reasons. Home brewing can be a hobby, but it can also turn into a business. Many breweries in town, including Bridge 99 Brewing and Oblivion Brewing Company, were started by home brewers, so you never know where that interest will lead you. Here’s what a few home brewers had to say about their favorite hobby.
Adam Mendel, brewing since 2012 How he got into it: I love beer so when my friend Dave mentioned that he also wanted to give home brewing a shot we took a trip to The Brew Shop and split a beginner’s kit. Tips for new brewers: Less is more. Start with simple recipes and perfect them. Learn what your ingredients taste and smell like. You can add a million ingredients, but it doesn’t necessarily mean a superior beer. One of the best beers I’ve ever brewed was a simple single-malt, single-hop IPA, but I nailed all of the steps and it was a real champ. Why he keeps brewing: Fun. I love the technical aspects, the chemistry and the rhythm of the brew session. Of course, I also like having a good excuse to have an afternoon beer while I watch the boil kettle roll. What it takes to be a home brewer: To find out how to become a home brewer I asked Jeff Hawes, co-owner of The Brew Shop in Bend. “For under $250 you can get started,” he said. “We have the equipment and 10 different home brewing kits to make 5 gallons of beer.” Five gallons of beer is equivalent to nine six packs. Hawes also has advice for a first-time brewer. Like Koester, he said, “sanitization is the number one thing. If you make it through that you get a decent beer.”
Tim Koester, brewing since 2002 How he got into it: A neighbor was brewing, and I hung out and watched him and was interested. We brewed together for a while and then I bought my own equipment. Tips for new brewers: Many new brewers get discouraged because they get a bad batch, but it’s easy to make good beer as long as you follow good sanitation processes. Why he keeps brewing: It’s a very creative process, I can design my own recipes. I get to share my results with friends and family and enjoy my effort. There are so many fun aspects to the hobby.
Mike Dugan, brewing since 2011 How he got into it: I was inspired by my son who was brewing beer in college. Since I started I’ve tried to brew once a month. I just completed my 78th brew. What he wishes someone would have told him when he first started: You learn a little every time you brew. If someone would have told me 25 years ago how easy it was I would have done it then. If you can boil water, you can brew beer. Why he keeps brewing: It’s fun, I like to drink it, and I’m retired so I have the time. I can get it from start to the carboy and cleaned up in just under four hours. I get a kick when people drink it and tell me how good it is.
New brewers can find support and camaraderie at the Central Oregon Homebrewers Organization. They meet twice a month, on the third Wednesday, for a regular meeting, and the first weekend for a group brew at a member’s home. Koester, a COHO member, said the group brew is a “hands-on opportunity to learn new techniques, and learn from other members. You watch a batch of beer being made and everyone stands Central Oregon around and asks questions.” Koester said the group has grown Homebrewers Organization a lot in the last eight years and currently has around 100 memcohomebrewers.org bers. Anyone is welcome to attend a meeting. If you like it, you can join. Membership is $30 a year. SW

EMW Fusion Tries GF Pandos
The EMW Fusion food truck is known for its pandos—Korean-style pancake sandwiches—and now they are testing a gluten-free option. For the month of March they have a small batch of gluten-free pandos available. Just ask for them. I went there with a gluten-free friend, Samantha Barsky, to try them. She said the pando was, “perfectly doughy and soft in the middle, yet still crispy on the outside. This in particular was good because doughy and gluten-free are hard to find.” You can find EMW Fusion on Wednesday and Friday at Bridge 99 Brewery until the end of March. After that they’ll head to On Tap, the new food truck lot on the east side of Bend. EMW Fusion

Strangest Brews SCREEN The Hopheads and the movies that love them By Jared Rasic
It’s hard to know whether art imitates life when it comes to beer (and drunks!) in movies, or whether the reverse is true, but in any case, we’re taking a quick look at some good-hearted cinematic drunks, in homage to this year’s Beer Issue.
Beerfest (2006) The comedy group Broken Lizard (responsible for “Super Troopers” and “Club Dread”) tells the story of a group of Americans who inherit the recipe for “the greatest beer in all ze world” from their dead German grandfather. They put together an American team to head to Germany and compete in the Olympics of drinking: Beerfest. They brew their mysterious recipe (known as Schnitzengiggle Beer) and it’s so good that it literally makes them cry. I’ve been there. The drunks in Beerfest are mostly good-natured and either pass out or get ridiculous when they hit the blackout marker. Someone does get murdered for a beer recipe, so the brewing is taken much more seriously than the drinking, which seems like a valid way to live.
Strange Brew (1983) When you think of a Canadian masterpiece loosely based on Hamlet, “Strange Brew” should be the first and only movie that pops into your head. The film follows slow-witted and broke brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie as they get in way over their head at the Elsinore brewery. All they wanted was to blackmail a local beer store into giving them some free brews, eh. The evil Brewmeister Smith is putting a mind-control drug in Elsinore beer so he can take over the world and only the McKenzies can halt his evil plans. The McKenzies are those brain-damaged drunks you see piecing together their weekends on Monday morning. They mean well, but the beer comes first. It’s the spinach to their drunken Canadian Popeyes. If Bob and Doug McKenzie are superheroes, then sobriety is their kryptonite.
Young Einstein (1988) Remember when Yahoo Serious was a thing? Me, neither. But I do remember “Young Einstein,” a comedy so ridiculous that it was my favorite thing ever when I saw it at eight years old. Serious plays the young genius, a youngster obsessed with physics. When he finds the family shed full of brewing instruments, he learns his family is desperately trying to change the world by adding bubbles to beer. Einstein drinks his face off throughout the day and comes up with the theory of Mass-energy equivalence (E=MC2) as a way to split beer atoms and create bubbles. After splitting the beer atom with a hammer and chisel (yeah, I know), the bubbles appear and he rejoices. By the end of the movie he also invents surfing and rock music, so take this one in stride.

HAPPY END: The new fi lm from Michael Haneke, the devious mind behind “Funny Games” and “Cache.” Haneke’s fi lms are always unforgettable and this one looks to be right in his disturbing and unsettling wheelhouse. Tin Pan Theater.
BLACK PANTHER: The hype for the newest

fi lm in Marvel’s slate of superhero fl icks has been overwhelming and, amazingly, the fi lm completely deserves it. “Black Panther” is less of a superhero movie with some drama thrown in than a family drama with some superheroes sprinkled throughout. A genuinely thoughtful and powerful fi lm that fi nally puts an African-American hero front and center. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Redmond Cinema
CALL ME BY YOUR NAME: A heartbreakingly romantic and natural drama focused on a 17-year-old student as he falls in love with an older man in summertime Italy. A gorgeous fi lm that deserves to be seen by anyone interested in the art of motion pictures. Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX, Tin Pan Theater. DEATH WISH: Bruce Willis stars in this remake of a bad Charlie Bronson movie.

Due to the four to six weeks that patients may wait before making it to a physical therapist, the toll this winter has taken is still unfolding. at several World Championships and Grand Prix events, Doden has seen a trend. “With respect to yearly fluctuations and in snowfall and snow sport injury patterns, we do see a pretty clear relationship. In years where we have predominant icy, hard-packed conditions, we definitely notice an increase in fractures as a whole.” Doden says typical winter accidents include slips and falls often resulting in fractures, motor vehicle accidents related to poor driving conditions, and

t the risk of bringing up a sour subject, the base depth and snowfall for the 2017-18 snow season has been low compared to last season’s inundation. According to Mount Bachelor historical snowfall data, this season’s snow pack depth maxed out in early March at 104 inches, compared to last season’s 145 inches. As for total snowfall, the 2017-18 winter has seen 161 inches, while 201617 winter saw a whopping 469 inches. Besides feeling slighted, you should also be extra careful on the slopes when the snow is slight. According to physical therapists, certain kinds of snow sports injuries are associated with powder drought conditions. Mike Doden, physical therapist and co-owner at Central Oregon’s outpatient orthopedics chain, Rebound Physical Therapy, has gathered plenty of winter injury rehabilitation experience. During his 19 years with the company, assisting the U.S. Snowboard team

Rebound Physical Therapy staffer for 12 years, treats a number of common wintertime snow sports-related hand injuries sustained from falls onto the outstretched hand, including wrist fractures and skier’s thumb (a sprain or rupture of the thumb ligament). “Of the skiing related injuries, this year I would say we may be seeing more fractures than we did last year,” Doden speculates. “This is likely related to the low snowpack which exposes more rocks, and also resulted in icy, hard packed conditions which is prime for causing injuries, especially fractures. When there is a good snowpack level with soft surface conditions, we typically see less fractures compared to what we have seen so far this year.” Due to the four to six weeks that patients may wait before making it to a physical therapist,

the toll this winter has taken is still unfolding. To avoid an unhappy ending to an already somewhat-disappointing shred season, follow some recommendations from Stahly and Doden. For snowboarders, wrist splints are proven to significantly lower chances of wrist injuries. There are also various breakaway adaptations for ski poles or supportive devices for the thumb to assist in the prevention of skier’s thumb. Maintaining an exercise program that focuses on core strengthening and conditioning to help reduce the chance of injury is also key. Sports-specific exercises that target muscle groups and movements geared to a sport are valuable. When it’s icy in town—rare this season—Stahly suggests over-the-shoe traction devices for fall prevention. SW

Tunes for Owls
Local violinist brothers to perform in support of a Great Horned Owl By Jim Anderson
55 VOLUME 22 ISSUE 11 / March 15, 2018 / THE SOURCE WEEKLY
t’s safe to say that the Oncken brothers, 9-year-old Ezra and 11-year-old Nicolas, have spent their lives growing up with the sounds of violin strings. Elder brother Nicolas can distinctly remember the first time he heard a violin and how powerful that moment was; and so can his mom, Akiko. “From that first day Nicolas heard the sweet sounds of the violin, he spent hours practicing his love of the instrument by holding a frying pan under his chin and using the first stick he could find for a bow, and began making the music he was hearing in his mind.” It’s a good thing violins come in full size, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 and even 1/10 sizes, so people with short arms can start practicing with a violin at just about any size and age. Both boys started out practicing on a 1/10 size and are still working their way up to the full size, instrument by instrument size. Today, Ezra is using a 1/4 size violin, built in France and made famous in 1941 by winning a musical instrument contest in Paris. Nicolas is using a 3/4 size violin. Both boys each have a personal three-ring binder they use for practicing at home, taking the binders with them to Eugene every Saturday for lessons with their teacher, Kara Eubanks. No matter what the weather, the boy’s dad, Scott Oncken, loads his family

Pedal To The Settle Â
I have a history of terrible relationships that end in awful heartbreak. The advice I keep getting is to date down -- get together with a man who is less attractive than I am and who likes me a little more than I like him. I was kind of into the idea of equality on all levels, but maybe Iâ€™m wrong. â€” Rethinking Woman
Thereâ€™s a mutual attraction between this guy in my doctoral program and me, and we have great conversations. Iâ€™d date him, but heâ€™s in a long-distance relationship. Recently, he started giving driving lessons to earn extra cash. I need to learn to drive a stick shift, so I signed up. This has morphed into our spending time together on weekends, having lunch, etc. My friends say this is a bad idea. But I guess Iâ€™m just following my heart. Is that so wrong to do? â€” Crushing
After youâ€™ve had your heart broken, itâ€™s tempting to opt for romantic safety measures. For example, a garden gnome could be an ideal partnerâ€”because few women will fight you for your 18-inch â€œMan of Resinâ€? and because his stubby little legs are molded together, making it impossible for him to run away. Thereâ€™s a name for this â€œdating downâ€? thing youâ€™re contemplating:Â â€œthe principle of least interest.â€? This is sociologistÂ Willard Wallerâ€™s termâ€”from his observations of dating dynamics between college studentsâ€”describingÂ how whichever partner is the least emotionally attached is in a position to â€œexploitâ€? the other.Â Now, you arenâ€™t looking to clean out a guyâ€™s bank account or make him scrub the baseboards with Barbieâ€™s toothbrush. Regardless, youâ€™re likely to have more power in any relationshipâ€”and be less likely to be the exploiteeâ€”if your response to a guyâ€™s â€œI love you SO much!â€? involves polite gratitude or pointing skyward: â€œLook! A UFO!â€?Â The problem is, how do you engineer this sort of situation? Only â€œswiping rightâ€? on men you have the lukewarmies for? Only accepting dates from men you donâ€™t entirely respect? Of course, even an â€œIâ€™m just not that into youâ€? strategy like this isnâ€™t foolproof, because what anthropologists call â€œmate valueâ€? can shiftâ€”like when the mouth-breathing nerdy loser becomes the mouth-breathing but unexpectedly sexy startup multigazillionaire.Â Tempting as it is to look for hacks to avoid heartbreak, itâ€™s probably more helpful to look at whether there was anything you couldâ€™veâ€” and shouldâ€™veâ€”done differently in your past relationships. (Were there red flags you spotted and then dropped off at Goodwill with the weird tablecloth from your aunt?) Beyond any willful blindness on your part, the reality is, relationships sometimes end in heartbreak. Itâ€™s just the price of getting together with a man you love and lust afterâ€”as opposed to one you approached with â€œYou know, Iâ€™ve always kinda pitied you and found you borderline sexually repellant. Whaddya say we get a beer?â€?
â€œFollow your heart!â€? is like that â€œforget about money; do what you love!â€? Amy Alkon professional advice. And go right ahead with that career in lentil sculptureâ€”assuming youâ€™re looking forward to spending your golden years in a very nice retirement tent.Â As for all this time the guy is spending with you, consider that we seem to have evolved to have the romantic version of a spare tire in the trunkâ€”a â€œbackup mateâ€? (to the partner weâ€™re with). Evolutionary psychologists David Buss and Joshua Duntley explain that â€œmates might cheat, defectâ€?Â (run off with another), â€œleave, or die. They might suddenly drop in mate value.â€? Their research finds that both men and women seem to maintain backup matesâ€”three on averageâ€”and â€œtry to keep their backup mates out of other relationshipsâ€? (like by giving them false hope during automotive lurchings around the parking lots of closed superstores).Â You might also consider thatÂ thereâ€™s more to making yourself attractive to a potential boyfriend than a few swipes of MAC and Maybelline. Social psychologist Robert Cialdini, reflecting on what he calls â€œthe scarcity principle,â€? points out that we value is what seems out of reach (as opposed to whatâ€™s all over us like orange â€œcheese productâ€? on a kidâ€™s veggies):Â â€œStudy after study shows that items and opportunities are seen to be more valuable as they become less available.â€?Â In other words, until a man is girlfriend-free, itâ€™s in your best interest to be about as accessible to him as the upholstery of my late Grandma Paulineâ€™s couch was to the rumps of most of humanity. There were people she would remove the plastic covering for -- visiting movie stars and members of the British royal family (a la â€œIâ€™m bored with St. Barts. How about a slushy January in suburban Detroit?â€?).Â

REAL ESTATE LISTINGS
Stunning Home VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Cultivating a robust
is among the best Russian literature of the twentieth century, poet Marina Tsvetayeva lived in poverty. When fellow poet Rainer Maria Rilke asked her to describe the kingdom of heaven, she said, â€œNever again to sweep floors.â€? I can relate. To earn a living in my early adulthood, I washed tens of thousands of dishes in restaurant kitchens. Now that Iâ€™m grown up, one of my great joys is to avoid washing dishes. I invite you to think along these lines, Pisces. What seemingly minor improvements in your life are actually huge triumphs that evoke profound satisfaction? Take inventory of small pleasures that are really quite miraculous.
sense of humor makes you more attractive to people you want to be attractive to. An inclination to be fun-loving is another endearing quality thatâ€™s worthy of being part of your intimate repertoire. Thereâ€™s a third virtue related to these two: playfulness. Many humans of all genders are drawn to those who display joking, lighthearted behavior. I hope you will make maximum use of these qualities during the coming weeks, Virgo. You have a cosmic mandate to be as alluring and inviting as you dare.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The British science fiction TV show *Dr. Who* has appeared on BBC in 40 of the last 54 years. Over that span, the titular character has been played by 13 different actors. From 2005 until 2010, Aries actor David Tennant was the magic, immortal, time-traveling Dr. Who. His ascendance to the role fulfilled a hopeful prophecy he had made about himself when he was 13 years old. Now is an excellent time for you, too, to predict a glorious, satisfying, or successful occurrence in your own future. Think big and beautiful!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): New York City is the most densely populated city in North America. Its land is among the most expensive on earth; one estimate says the average price per acre is $16 million. Yet there are two uninhabited islands less than a mile off shore in the East River: North Brother Island and South Brother Island. Their combined 16 acres are theoretically worth $256 million. But no one goes there or enjoys it; itâ€™s not even parkland. I bring this to your attention, Taurus, because I suspect itâ€™s an apt metaphor for a certain situation in your life: a potentially rich resource or influence that youâ€™re not using. Now is a good time to update your relationship with it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The iconic 1942 movie *Casablanca* won three Academy Awards and has often appeared on criticsâ€™ lists of the greatest films ever made. Thatâ€™s amazing considering the fact that the production was so hectic. When shooting started, the script was incomplete. The writing team frequently presented the finished version of each new scene on the day it was to be filmed. Neither the director nor the actors knew how the plot would resolve until the end of the process. I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because it reminds me of a project you have been working on. I suggest you start improvising less and planning more. How do you want this phase of your life to climax?
CANCER (June 21-July 22): If all goes well in the coming weeks, you will hone your wisdom about how and when and why to give your abundant gifts to deserving recipients -- as well as how and when and why to *not* give your abundant gifts to deserving recipients. If my hopes come to pass, you will refine your ability to share your tender depths with worthy allies -- and you will refine your understanding of when to *not* share your tender depths with worthy allies. Finally, Cancerian, if you are as smart as I think you are, you will have a sixth sense about how to receive as many blessings as you disseminate.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): How adept are you at playing along the boundaries between the dark and the light, between confounding dreams and liberated joy, between â€œIs it real?â€? and â€œDo I need it?â€?? You now have an excellent opportunity to find out more about your capacity to thrive on delightful complexity. But I should warn you. The temptation to prematurely simplify things might be hard to resist. There may be cautious pressure coming from a timid voice in your head thatâ€™s not fierce enough to want you to grow into your best and biggest self. But hereâ€™s what I predict: You will bravely explore the possibilities for self-transformation that are available outside the predictable niches.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I suggest you gaze at exquisitely wrought Japanese woodcuts . . . and listen to jazz trumpeter Miles Davis collaborating with saxophonist John Coltrane . . . and inhale the aroma of the earth as you stroll through groves of very old trees. Catch my drift, Libra? Surround yourself with soulful beauty -- or else! Or else what? Or else Iâ€™ll be sad. Or else you might be susceptible to buying into the demoralizing thoughts that people around you are propagating. Or else you may become blind to the subtle miracles that are unfolding, and fail to love them well enough to coax them into their fullest ripening. Now get out there and hunt for soulful beauty that awakens your deepest reverence for life. Feeling awe is a necessity for you right now, not a luxury.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23Nov. 21): In the Sikh religion, devotees are urged to attack weakness and sin with five â€œspiritual weaponsâ€?: contentment, charity, kindness, positive energy, and humility. Even if youâ€™re not a Sikh, I think youâ€™ll be wise to employ this strategy in the next two weeks. Why? Because your instinctual nature will be overflowing with martial force, and youâ€™ll have to work hard to channel it constructively rather than destructively. The best way to do that is to be a vehement perpetrator of benevolence and healing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In 1970, a biologist was hiking through a Brazilian forest when a small monkey landed on his head, having jumped from a tree branch. Adelmar Coimbra-Filho was ecstatic. He realized that his visitor was a member of the species known as the golden-rumped lion tamarin, which had been regarded as extinct for 65 years. His lucky accident led to a renewed search for the elusive creatures, and soon more were discovered. I foresee a metaphorically comparable experience coming your way, Sagittarius. A resource or influence or marvel you assumed was gone will reappear. How will you respond? With alacrity, I hope!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The Velcro fastener is a handy invention that came into the world thanks to a Swiss engineer named George de Mestral. While wandering around the Alps with his dog, he got curious about the bristly seeds of the burdock plants that adhered to his pants and his dog. After examining them under a microscope, he got the idea to create a clothing fastener that imitated their sticking mechanism. In accordance with the astrological omens, Capricorn, I invite you to be alert for comparable breakthroughs. Be receptive to help that comes in unexpected ways. Study your environment for potentially useful clues and tips. Turn the whole world into your classroom and laboratory. Itâ€™s impossible to predict where and when you may receive a solution to a long-running dilemma! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): On May 29, 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay climbed to the top of Mount Everest. They were celebrated as intrepid heroes. But they couldnâ€™t have done it without massive support. Their expedition was powered by 20 Sherpa guides, 13 other mountaineers, and 362 porters who lugged 10,000 pounds of baggage. I bring this to your attention, Aquarius, in the hope that it will inspire you. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to gather more of the human resources and raw materials you will need for your rousing expedition later this year.

eafly is an app and website that, along with Weedmaps, is fairly well known to consumers of cannabis, be it medical or recreational. It’s great for finding dispensaries nearest to your GPS location, and can show you the menus, prices and customer reviews of individual dispensaries and their products. It’s popular AF, receiving 10 million monthly visitors and 40 million page views on both platforms combined. Yet for many, myself included, it’s real value are the News and Strains sections. The content in the News section is well researched and written, and a great way to keep up with cannabis happenings around the globe. The Strains section is a goldmine of information. You can sort through hundreds, if not thousands, of strains and filter your search by strain name, moods and activities, medical conditions and nearly 100 other filters. It’s a very comprehensive repository of information that you would otherwise need to source out from various other sites. In addition, there’s an equally valuable and often even more useful section comprised of user reviews of strains and products. It’s both remarkably unbiased and specific about the benefits and effects consumers obtained from individual products. Now Leafly has assembled a “book.” Millennials, let me explain: It’s like an uber-analog Kindle, upon which you can consume content, but it uses dead tree pulp to make “pages” that you “turn” using your “fingers,” much like swiping. Ask your parents. I’m in love with this book. It’s rare that you find a cannabis guide that would be of interest and have value to both the neophyte and the seasoned veteran. Many are too focused on just one area, and become pot porn tomes with lots of pictures of very pretty buds and plants. I like pretty, too, but substance always trumps it. And this is a substantive book. I’ve been giving away and loaning out the additional copies provided to my medical marijuana patients, as it could conceivably answer any questions they might have for me, and actually give better information. The chapters include:
Understanding the Basics, covering cannabinoids, terpenes, genotypes and phenotypes, and tips for beginners Smoking, covering how a grinder works, how to pack a bowl, what is shake and the difference between joints, blunts and spliffs Edibles, Topicals, Oils and Concentrates, Buying and Consumption tips, and even a Troubleshooting chapter with a section on what to do if you get too high. It’s a hefty 227 pages, but beautifully produced. Tons of color photos make the science you’re reading about easier to understand, and it is science heavy, albeit extremely accessible. The authors help the reader appreciate and understand cannabis in ways that they’ve never known or may have forgotten. Example: “If you find yourself combating paranoia and anxiety...and too much cannabis has you on the verge of freaking out, just sniff or chew on a few black peppercorns for almost instantaneous relief.” I didn’t know this, but I’m now including a small container of peppercorns in the cannabis I provide to patients who are prone to unpleasant side effects of consumption. For those using cannabis to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or geriatric patients with limited experience, this can be an easily accessible safety valve. As with anything that has been demonized and prohibited, education and experience is how cannabis is gaining wider understanding and acceptance. This book is a great tool to that end. (Full disclosure: The box with review copies of this book from Leafly also included stickers, pins and socks. As I’m not a 6-year-old girl, at least not on the outside, I gifted the stickers and pins and kept the socks, the only item I might perceive as bribe-worthy. I’ve written several pieces for Leafly, but that was well over a year ago. In other words, I have no favoritism toward this book even though the company that produced it gave me a couple pairs of socks. If you have an item you would like considered for review, please don’t send socks with said item with the expectation that they will garner you a review.)
