A big building will be moving through the streets of Bend this weekend.
Spoken Moto, the popular gathering spot known for food, drink and motorcycle repair near the Box Factory, is braced, strapped and up on wheels.
It will be rolled to a new location in the Bend Central District starting around 10:00 p.m. Saturday. There will be a private send-off party beforehand which isn’t open to the publc.
The 70-year-old building will be the centerpiece of a new food truck court, farmer’s market space and a performance venue at NE 2nd Street and Hawthorne Avenue. That’s across from the BottleDrop.
The hope is to reopen at that site sometime this summer.
We recently took a deeper dive into the move and the impact it will have on the Central District. You can watch that in the player below.
