The “Portlandia” east coast premiere is tonight in New York (Edison Ballroom) and is showing a strong Portland presence at 47th and Broadway, right off Times Square. An eclectic variety of Oregon products will make up the goody bags, Rogue Ales created a special “Portlandia” bottle to serve and Portland band, The Thermals, will be playing. All in all, a true Portland experience right there in New York.
Interestingly, some screening events are popping up in and around New York and Portland when the 6 part IFC series begins airing, Friday 21st at 10.30ET/PT.
For those of you that live in Portland – keep celebrating “the state of mind “- and for those of you who are curious and want to visit, IFC and Aloft Hotels are partnering on a 3 day/2 night trip for two – you can enter the sweepstakes here.
