Cornucopia on 5th in Eugene, Oregon

Cal State University, Long Beach, at bat.
We're back in Eugene, Oregon, for the NCAA 2016 Women's Softball Regionals. Fifth ranked University of Oregon is hosting in their new Jane Sanders Stadium. The weather's been cloudy, but no rain, so far.

A bonus was that California State University, Long Beach (Long Beach State College when I went there in the 60s) was here. I kept switching T-shirts between games. Unfortunately, CSULB didn't make it to play UO.

While in Eugene, we never miss having dinner at our favourite restaurant, Cornucopia.

The Cornucopia is funky, bright, colourful, and popular with locals, college students, and tourists like us. It's tucked away on 5th Avenue next to the railroad tracks. You can even see trains passing by through a window behind the bar. How cool is that!

What's a vacation without lots of good food. We probably should have opted for a light dinner after all the fan food at the game, but NOT.

We had the Saturday special, a hot meatball sandwich, fries or tater tots, and a brew for only $12.99. There's a different rotating special each night. Plus, they have a varied menu with something for everyone.

Local microbrews are available on tap, and there's a reduced price happy hour M-F 3:00-6:00. Regular hours are from 11 am to late night, and they offer local home/office delivery. You can find the Corucopia online or Facebook.

The Cornucopia makes for a perfect end to a long day of sports whether it be softball, basketball or football. -- Margy
