OR 10/10- #pdxcarpet

The carpet at Portland International Airport (PDX) was designed in 1987, to replace the tiles which created a harsh noise as luggage rolled over one tile onto another. It has since become a symbol of home for Portlanders. 
The carpet has a cult following; it has its own instagram tag (#pdxcarpet), along with three twitter accounts.  People even dress as the carpet for Halloween, and some go as far as getting PDX tattoos.  Rogue has created a tasty India Pale Ale 'PDX Carpet' brew.  

Looking forward to the next time we see PDX carpet.

  1. Okay, this made me laugh out loud! What a crack up. Did you want to proclaim, "ONLY IN PORTLAND"? Now I want to fly there just for that. Who knew. Now I do because of your awesome blog. Fun stuff. Thanks Brady.
