What's behind the fence, you ask?

Ah, the firepits at O'Kanes; a true rite of passage for those of you calling Bend home can be found on the other side of the fence (behind McMenamins).  We've been here countless times; it is not unusual even for a local to say they didn't know this place existed.  Further, that they can't wait to share it with someone new.

As you make your way, you'll see folks sitting and standing around one of the three firepits imbibing and chattering away.  Its surprising how alcohol goes down on a seasonal night.  Inside there is a pub, with a pot-bellied stove, tables and booths.   There's a late-night happy hour at 10pm, by the way.  I go for the $2.50 spicy tater tots. 

From SoCal or other warmer locales?  It's time to impress upon us locales the fact that you now own apparel with long sleeves ;)  It's calling for 39 degrees tonight.  Perfect really for standing around a fire pit.  C'mon, be brave!  Show us what you got.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
