According to Moonalice legend, Portland has more nicknames than any other major city. Rose City, PDX, Stump Town, P-Town, Little Beirut, Rip City, Razorblade City, Bridgetown are excellent nicknames. We had a contest to see if our fans could come up with another nickname. They did. It was an embarrassment of riches. Out of respect for the city of Portland, we will not go further.
According to Moonalice legend, today is the 173rd anniversary of the first commercial use of the telegraph. It took place in England. The message read, “Dude, did you take my lighter?”
According to Moonalice legend, on this day in 1965 Bob Dylan went electric.
