Travel Tidbits: Power, art and blades

Alaska Airlines has installed 200 extra electrical outlets/USB ports at its gates in Anchorage, Portland and Seattle to match the power outlets in its gate areas in Terminal 6 at Los Angeles International Airport and at Sacramento, San Francisco and San Jose airports.

Portland International Airport has a new printmaking exhibit titled “Cut & Print” featuring the work of 11 regional artists. Look for it on Concourse A through February 20, 2013. “Squawkin,” above, is one of six woodcut portraits in the show created by Marc Girouard, an artist who also works at the airport.

And the annual ice-skating rink at Atlanta’s Park Tavern, the historic restaurant in Piedmont Park, opens on Thanksgiving Day as the Southwest Rink at Park Tavern.

Skaters who have their photo taken at the rink and post it to the Southwest Airlines Facebook page will be entered into a contest for a pair of tickets to one of the cities the airline serves. More details here.
