Well, he’s not in Bend anymore, but rumor has it (strongly backed up by multiple sources) that actor Orlando Bloom was in Bend over the weekend (perhaps before?) to watch (or, according to some sources, participate in) the Cascade Cycling Classic.
The news broke on Twitter, naturally, and spread to Facebook as well. Some of the "Orlando sightings" sounded genuine, and here’s what I can add:
He was at Strictly Organic Coffee, where I think the first sighting was made, and an employee of Strictly Organic later confirmed that he had indeed, been in. (Of course, this employee was at the Old Mill Strictly Organic located in the old Bella Cucina space across from Anthony’s, and not at the main SO location.)
And a manager at Phoenix Inn told me in person that Orlando had indeed been there, staying at the Phoenix Inn and checking out Sunday morning.
So what’s your Orlando Bloom sighting story?
