    SCHOOL SHOULDA BEEN SO COOL!

    by

    Oregon has the McMenamin brothers to thank for the restoration of many old buildings. Here in downtown Bend, they have revived an old Catholic parochial school and made it into a hotel/brewpub/restaurant/spa/theater complex much as they have done with my grade school in Portland - Kennedy School.

    The old school here boasts of a central hotel complex - school class rooms have become new hotel rooms. Hotel fares also cover entrance into an elaborate “Turkish” spa where you can float around a central fountain that is open to the elements - stars or snowflakes - and also attend one or more of the several movies showing in the old school auditorium while sipping a brew or having some food. There is also a main restaurant and brewpub forming the centerpiece of the St Francis, but a small satellite pub allowing cigar smokers can be found across the east side of the hotel parking lot with a large patio area that boasts several fir pits. Here you can really experience apres skis and discover several new friends in the process. Around the patio area are several houses that used be part of the school complex. These can be rented and my group likes to go for the Nunnery from which all of the amenities of the St Francis can be enjoyed. A great day of skiing can be capped with a soak, a flick and then sitting out by the fire with a glass of aqua vit, a cigar and a bunch of old and new friends. American apres ski gets no better!
