It’s been a little more than a year since we set up shop in Eugene, Oregon. Since then, you’ve opened your arms by welcoming us to your community and sharing our love of pasta.
The old saying rings true: teamwork does make the dreamwork. Which is why we teamed up as sponsors with the Eugene Emeralds for the 2018 season.
It was so much fun to cheer on the Emeralds all summer with our community of pasta lovers and Noodle Heads!
This year, we gave away tickets to six Emeralds baseball games, and the winners were lucky enough to witness this incredible season first-hand. Amazingly, after a tough season, the Emeralds won the league championship after having the worst record in the league. The team had even earned the nickname ‘Bad News Ems’ by having the Northwest League’s worst overall record. Even so, they persevered — and went undefeated in the playoffs, winning five games in a row — and won the league title!
Congratulations to the Ems for an improbable, incredible ending. We like to think the magic of pasta helped out a little!
And, thank you, all our amazing customers, for loving our pasta and the Emeralds as much as we do, and continuing to support us both. We’re honored to be members of your community!
