Right as you enter, you’re greeted by posters, cassettes and CDs galore, and then there are the records. Holy shit, sweet, sweet vinyl.

A perfect gift for a family Christmas morning, carolers shivering on your porch or friends and neighbors who love to drop by during the holidays, hot cocoa is an American holiday staple.

Whether a gifting list has five people on it or 25, Eugene Saturday Market’s Holiday Market has enough variety in one place to be true one-stop shopping.

Calendar of holiday events.

Earlier this year, the royal family of Qatar purchased Paul Cézanne’s painting “The Card Players” for a cool $250 million — the highest price ever paid for a painting. Fortunately, this holiday season, you don’t have to be part of the 1 percent to purchase a one-of-a-kind work of art.

The holidays are a time to visit family, devour sugary treats and wear the ugliest clothes imaginable at social events. In an ironic way, of course.

The holidays always manage to be the busiest time of year, just when our circadian rhythms are trying to get us to slow down a bit. Yet Eugene’s version of “busy” will likely still allow for the enjoyment of a few cultural and seasonal events this year.

Holidays mean curling up by a warm fire, cocoa in hand, cat on your lap, with your stockings hung by the fire with care ... Because hanging your socks by the fire is a great way to dry them after a nice long hike in the rain.

Noises in the night. Beds shaking. Lights flickering. Rooms flooding. Strange Victorian women. This is not your average relax-by-the-fire-with-a-cup-of-cocoa-after-a-day-on-the-slopes kind of ski getaway.

I’ll let you in on a secret: We’re not bears, so start acting Oregonian and get the hell out of town already.

I traveled to Mongolia to find big fish that also reflect Khan’s spirit. Taimen (hucho hucho taimen) are the world’s largest salmonids. They grow to more than five feet long, and they hunt prey in packs.

First there was couch surfing, then thanks to the web and social media there was CouchSurfing.org, which let people all over the world find couches to crash on. Now savvy travelers looking for a unique and local place to stay in Eugene or across the planet can use Airbnb.com to find a room, studio or cottage for their vacation getaway.

Beer and ballet. The combination is so Eugene it’s a wonder this isn’t already a decades-long tradition. It certainly isn’t any more unusual than watching cyclists smoke cigarettes as they lumber down Willamette Street, for example, so an event which brings both of these things together should be something that will please and amuse many.

Upstart Crow Studios holds a noble vision: to provide a place where all kids, regardless of income, training or physical ability can perform. No child who feels the magic pull of the theater is turned away for any reason. Nurturing children in the arts has been a passion and a pledge. Now, Upstart Crow is adding grown ups.

It’s like nothing else you have ever seen. Largely Butoh (Japanese avant garde) dance, other parts live music, animation, portraiture and stunning lighting techniques, Degenerate Art Ensemble (DAE) is an impressive display of props, visuals and music — and if any one element falls out of balance, the effect could be ruined or enhanced, depending on how you want to look at it.

It’s no secret that Sam Bond’s Garage is a venue where Eugeneans can go to experience lively bands (both local and touring) put on first-rate shows.

If this brewery only produced 10 barrels of beer, as its name might imply, Eugeneans would never have heard of it.

In the old days, human beings got drunk on unsanitary, bacteria-ridden, fermented pulp provided by agricultural negligence and elated discovery.

Crux Fermentation Project, which opened its doors June 30, sits on an 11-acre plot of land adjacent to Highway 97 smack in the center of Bend.

As somewhat of a beer virgin, I met up with part owner and brewery manager Jason Carriere to find out why Falling Sky Brewing’s beer has Eugene buzzing.

July 18, 2012 11:00 PM

There’s a bevy of crazy cheap beer out there that sud-suckers pretend to hate — you know, the industry standards like PBR, Hamm’s and other such swill.

In ancient civilizations, the transformation of sugar into alcohol was a ritual performed by diviners and seers.

Somehow the world didn’t quite understand the Nazis in mid-1938. 

Then Herschel Grynszpan, a teenage German-born Polish Jew living in Paris, found out his family had been among 12,000 German/Polish Jews arrested, stripped of their property and citizenship, then deported from Hanover for locations unknown in Poland. Grynszpan was young; he was angry and he wanted revenge.
