Prepare for even more visitors to our fairly weird city. Joseph B. Frazier has cataloged Portland’s popular kudos and quirks in an AP article that is making the rounds.
The article, entitled, The chi of Portland: High weirdness in Nirvana, touches on all the usual suspects: Voodoo Doughnuts, nudity and freedom of expression, drag queens, kitsch art, Powell’s, the Zoo Bombers, our politics, beer, roses, protests, Bud Clark, Henry Weinhard, Shanghai tunnels, Erickson’s Saloon, and The Rain.
The article is fairly comprehensive, but I noted a items missing from the list.
I suppose some of these aren’t so weird, so they might fall outside of the purview of the article.
Any other Portland quirks that were missed?
