Rare Occurrence: Riverside CA ZIP Code To Match Today’s Date

RIVERSIDE (CBSLA) — It sounds like a romantic comedy, but it’s actually much rarer — for the first and only time this century, a Riverside postal code will match today’s date, an occasion known in the U.S. Postal Service as “Date Meets Zip.”

Monday is 9-25-17, the same numbers in a ZIP code covering parts of east and south Riverside, USPS spokeswoman Eva Jackson said.

“The possibility of having a ‘Date Meets ZIP’ is quite rare,” said USPS spokeswoman Eva Jackson. “It only comes up every 100 years, and for most locations, not at all.”
