Taste This! – Drake and Washington Restaurants

Our favorite foodie, Donna Britt, is back with us for the latest edition of Taste This! This week, we have a double play as she visits the Drake in Downtown Bend and Washington in Northwest Crossing with the fellow who owns both places.

Join Donna as she experiences the philosophy behind these two popular places and tastes their yummy food–and of course, a couple of their handcrafted one-of-a-kind drinks!

Thanks to Ted Swigert for taking the time to show us around and to the entire staff at Drake and Washington. A special thanks to our sponsor, Newport Avenue Market, for giving us the time and resources to bring you this delightful culinary feature each week. Life is short. Eat good food.

Destination Oregon: Pendleton’s Rainbow Cafe

Pendleton, in the northeast corner of the state, is of course home to the internationally famous Pendleton Round-Up. It is also home to the almost equally famous Rainbow Cafe, where cowboys and cowgirls and city slickers as well chow down and drink up.

For this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes us to the authentic western bar, the Rainbow Cafe.

Thanks to Jo at Rainbow Cafe for showing us around and a special thanks to our Destination Oregon sponsor, Robberson Ford, for giving us the time and resources to take you to some of our state’s most beautiful and interesting locations every Thursday night on Central Oregon Daily.
