We were in Bend while they were having their Oktoberfest.
Since my husband loves beer AND making inappropriate comments about sausage we HAD to go.
And had another beer. Because when faced with a dozen microbrews? You HAVE to try more than one.
We HAD to get something. How often do you find soda fountains?
After breakfast at our hotel we went on a run.
Yeah. On vacation.
Well…. when normally you run on a high school track because you live somewhere with a lack of sidewalks and streetlights
No. We HAD to do it.
(Fun fact-that is Mirror Pond-like the beer. The husband had just complained about how the name was deceptive as it was not mirror like as I took the picture. We were looking right in front of us focusing on how up close it was murky, rather than checking out the big picture of the lake. I’m sure there’s a deep life lesson in there.)
For lunch we realized we HAD to make a stop at Deschutes. I mean, if you’re in Bend, you just have to.
I had a Benderweisse, which is a Berliner weisse style sour beer. I like sours. They’re like soda that gives you a buzz.
Best part? See the red and green things next to it? Raspberry and Woodruff syrups to flavor it with. I had no clue what woodruff was, so I stuck with raspberry. But adding sugar to my beer amused me.
When we looked over the food menu we saw one of your side choices was sweet potato fries. The husband HAD to have those. There’s a chance I HAD to steal some of his.
Then we headed home. Since I’d just downed a beer and a glass of water I HAD to pee about five minutes into driving.
Plus we HAVE to watch football on the weekends.
What’ve you HAD to do lately?
