        and it looks as if it has all the watering-hole ambience of a dentist's waiting room

          It is primarily a student dining area....so yes the ambiance is lacking.

          The bar area is much better. But it isn't the Wild Duck or McManaman's.

          But it is right across the street so I can imagine it being very popular on rainy or very hot days at Hayward. During the Trials we parked early near Hayward to get a good spot and hung out at McManaman's until it was time to go. A life saver especially the day it got to 111.

          • Meanwhile...with little to do on Thanksgiving Eve...I counted all of the 'temporary seats'...

            There are 2652 of them....

            So the capacity of Hayward is that plus 12,500 or 15,152.

              As far as I know, that total seating capacity is just over half the minimum supposedly required by World Athletics for a venue to host a World Championships.

              • Indeed....probably why they didn't give any details 3 years ago when the new stadium plan was announced...they weren't worried about the Eugene people. The stadium is ideal for us.

                    You sure you didn't miss one?

                      I might have missed a small few....but it was pretty easy and fast to do looking at the maps for seats on sale.

                      I guessed before even counting it was around 3000....

                      At coffee Monday someone said they would hold 10,000 which I knew was absurd.

                            perhaps the upgraded jumbotron?

                            • It must have to do with the 'temporary' seats that are suppose to be where the ramp is. For the WC there are some new blocks added. I counted 2652 additional seats.

                              I'll stop by next week and ask one of the workers for more details.

                              Not sure where you put a Jumbotron on the north end.

                              • On Agate I asked a workman what they are building in the north end..a 5200 Sq ft scoreboard. Will be behind the temporary seats
