The dungeon masters within Evolution Gaming's dragon-haunted walls lord over not only a board-, card-, and model-game depot, but also a stadium that hosts campaigns, tournaments, and one-off games. Miniature battlefields both urban and rural might be rolled over by Flames of War tanks and infantry, or invaded by the elves, orcs, and humans of Warhammer. Aspiring game masters can peruse several walls of rulebooks before stepping into alternate worlds or eras of the past such as in Founding Fathers.

When Dave Wagenheim started selling tofu dogs in downtown Eugene in 2006, he had no idea his modest venture would blossom into Viva! Vegetarian Grill, a food cart honored as the city's third best by Eugene Weekly in 2012. From his corner on 12th Avenue and Willamette Street, as well as a café inside the Eugene Family YMCA, the team crafts a rotating selection of 100% vegan and vegetarian items. Those include Polish-style soysage, locally made organic tempeh tossed in a vegan hot-wing sauce, and an original vegan soft serve made from a cashew base, rather than just the ice part of ice cream.
Organic coffee from Wandering Goat Coffee Co., organic chai and rooibos teas, and a selection of organic juices complement each meatless feast. Along with the mainstay locations, the Viva! team feeds hungry herbivores at music and arts festivals throughout the Northwest.
