• Eugene Weekly Loves You!

Reader Jason T. Pitzl sent us this photo of a sign outside The Barn Light restaurant at 924 Willamette. “I had no idea that downtown Eugene is now the heart of ‘Little Portland,’” he writes. The restaurant décor and ambiance was inspired in part by Portland’s classy urban scene, but the Portland reference does continue to raise eyebrows. A distinction probably needs to be made between “classy” and “hip.” Portland might have more class, but Eugene has always been more hip.
