We celebrated twenty years of the Dude, Walter, Donny and Jesus at our Park Avenue West Pendleton store on Friday, September 28th, 2018. We want to thank all the Achievers who came out to support our effort to set a Guinness World Record for Most People Dressed as the Dude. We haven’t heard from the Guiness folks yet, but we are hopeful.
But back to the party.
The crowd was large and mellow. Attendees enjoyed trivia contests and prizes, a photo booth, refreshments worthy of any bowling alley, complimentary dog toys and sweaters, a swank commemorative cardigan pin, White Russians and craft beer courtesy of The Big Legrowlski, our esteemed event partners. They also had a familiar movie to watch, with a playlist that included all the best songs.
The #PDXforest sprang up at the airport in the early morning hours of July 18th. The trees are large, lovely and hard to miss–look outside our PDX airport store.
Each week through September 12th, one lucky Instagrammer will win a Pendleton National Park blanket with an Instagram photo of the #PDXforest.
So get to it, folks!
Follow @pendletonwm on Instagram. If you have already followed us, you’re good to go. If you haven’t, it’s time.
Take a photo with one of the Pendleton National Park trees at the PDX airport.
Post your photo on Instagram with the hashtag #PDXforest.
