September 21, 2017, Portland, OR—Do you dare consume a wine that evokes the essence of Cthulhu himself? Experience the mysterious, the cosmic, and the unknown, as Pairings Portland—Portland’s “weirdest wine shop and bar”—unites with the 22nd annual H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon for their H.P. Lovecraft Wine Week! Come sample an eight-wine tasting flight paired to characters and stories from H.P. Lovecraft for $25, plus save $5 when you show a ticket stub or badge/wristband for the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival, October 6-8 at The Hollywood Theatre.
Can’t wait until October 9? There will be a special preview tasting event at Pairings Portland Friday, October 6 from 12:00 to 5:00 pm to kick off the debut of the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon, one of the largest and longest-running Lovecraftian events in the cosmos. Not just a film festival, the HPLFF is a convention-style event with panel discussions, readings, art, games, and more. Guest of honor is author F. Paul Wilson, and special appearance by Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn). Buy tickets online: http://hplfilmfestival.com/
“At Pairings Portland, we’ve paired wine to a lot of fantastical characters, including Wonder Woman and the cast of Game of Thrones, but we’re going to a whole new level taking on Cthulhu and the Dunwich Horror.” said Pairings Portland Jeffrey Weissler. “We’re big fans of local geeky events like the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival, and we’re excited to add an extra dimension of fun for horror fans!”
In addition to the eight-wine tasting flight, Pairings will offer two three-wine bonus flights for $10 each: one paired to the Elder Gods, and the other to Monsters. Can’t make it in early October? Never fear: the favorites from this event will be included in Pairings’ Halloween Week Flight!
