Eugene, Oregon HOME of the Ducks
It's nice to share with the rest of the world but the Ducks live, work and play in Eugene, Oregon where the University of Oregon is located. While Eugene may not be the most cosmopolitan of places, it is like a comfy, well worn bathrobe of a town. When you're looking for great Pizza, as in Pizza Research Institute or Cozmic Pizza, hey, they are in Eugene.
If you are looking for great music and concert venues, think Hult Center, MacDonald Theater, Cuthbert Theater and the WOW Hall. And who is coming to the nearly finished U of O arena this February? None other than Sir Elton John! The holidays are gone but has everyone taken down their Christmas lighting outdoors? Not in Eugene. In fact, I count at least three lighted peace symbols on homes just on my block alone.
Chickens dart out in the road, along with deer and raccoons. There is tie-dye and there is the super-futuristic looking US Courthouse. Go figure. That's Eugene. It's worth a visit. If we're good enough for Woody Harrelson, maybe you'll like it, too!
