At a recent DPOA marketing meeting, downtown promoter Ed Tessier pitched an ad campaign that uses tongue and cheek psychology to promote the downtown. As a culturally aware , artistic, creative, and spontaneous group of people inhabiting the downtown for work, pleasure ,business, or residence, the idea that this jewel of the Inland Empire and hub of all that is progressive, good, and wholesome and by association "The real 909", it was almost laughable (which of course is the point of the campaign)when we were asked to come up with 909 reasons why we love downtown Pomona...piece of cake Mr. Tessier, not even a contest!
Think you can come up with 909 reasons why you love downtown Pomona? Give it a try, we'd love to hear from you. In the meantime, here are a few;
We only have one Starbucks
No hair, new hair, green hair, blue hair
Usually, you can't smell Chino
There had to be something between Pasadena and Vegas
There's never been an Olsen Twin sighting
