Mondays - Cuts from the Crates

Mondays have turned out to be really fun at the Hall! Not only is it 1/2 Price Sandwich Night but it's also Cuts from the Crates - aka the Justin and Chris fun hour. Chris is the chef from Circa 33, next door, and he has become a really good friend of ours. Chris loves funk, soul and hip hop music and is somewhat new to djing for a crowd - so it's so fun to see him light up as he get into it. He really loves it.

Justin is DJ Clarence Duffy and Chris is DJ Skill-it. How fitting :)

Tuscan Pastrami on Rye

Reid, one of our employees and invaluable part of the Hall of Records team, has been coming up with some amazing sandwich specials lately. A few weeks ago he came up with a Roast Beef sandwich with a tomato poblano relish. People still talk about that sandwich. And this weeks' is no exception. It's a Tuscan Pastrami on Rye - artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, capers and mozzarella grilled to perfection!

The key to a great sandwich is the dressing. Reid makes all of his from scratch and they really make the sandwiches special. We're going to be putting a few more of Reid's sandwiches on the regular menu over the next few weeks. And with every Monday being 1/2 Price Sandwich night, you just can't beat it.

Familiar Faces

This week Justin and I came back to work pretty much full time. I didn't realize how much I missed the people that come to our store (probably because of all the pain meds) until they started streaming in the front door throughout this week.

I have been overwhelmingly excited and grateful to see so many familiar faces. It means so much more, too, that they come out in the freezing cold, post holiday dormancy to see us. I can not even begin to express how much I love our store and the people that come in it. Thank you for everything.

We Love Private Parties!

The past few weeks we've had the pleasure of hosting some really awesome private parties. This past Thursday, there was a joint birthday party at the same time the DJ put on her first theramin and DJing show. It was unbelievable.

We've had some other events including wedding receptions, office happy hours, birthday parties, producer shows, DJ shows and even lectures.

I was mentioning to someone in the shop the other day that we're going to miss the Eugene Record Convention this year because we have an event at the store on the same day. The guy I was telling was immediately interested in renting out the room for his own party. It made me think that maybe we're on to something here.

We have some pretty awesome amenities including beer & wine, good food, good music and a super cozy room. You can even DJ yourself if you want to. Plus awesomely good service :)

We're really excited for the events we have coming up including a Natian Brewery event & party. We'd love to host more!

Email us at and let us know what you want to do!

Or just come in and see us :)
