October 17, 2017, Portland, OR—Pairings Portland is excited to team up with NERD CAMP November 15 for an evening of wine, friends, and prizes that also benefits a great cause! Buy a ticket for $25 to enjoy six rounds of speed friending, each paired with a great wine from Pairings, with prizes sponsored by the Hollywood Theatre, Things From Another World, Red Castle Games, the PDX Broadsides, Hour to Midnight Room Escape Games, and Stranger Comics, with additional sponsorship by Victory Point Property Group. $5 of the ticket price goes directly to SnowCap Community Charities, where it will buy 100 pounds of food for people in need in east Multnomah County.
“Our mission at Pairings Portland is to be inclusive, and we love extending that to fantastic community organizations like NERD CAMP,” said Pairings Portland owner Jeffrey Weissler. “This event will bring people together to raise funds for 4,800 pounds of food for our neighbors in need right before the holidays, and we’re proud to be part of it.”
“This is a brand-new kind of event for NERD CAMP, and it’s a great opportunity for geeks who are new to wine tasting to learn about it in a comfortable and friendly setting,” said NERD CAMP founder Sarah Gulde. “It’s also a chance for more experienced wine tasters to check out Pairings and their amazing selection!”
Tickets are extremely limited to due to space—there will be two seatings of just 24 people each—so grab yours now. Each seating will start off with a practice tasting to learn how to taste wine properly, and then you’ll be given a nerdy topic to discuss over a great wine so you can get to know your table mates. After each question, you’ll move to another table with new friends to meet! Your ticket also includes one entry into the door prize drawing, so everyone is eligible to win a fabulous prize from our generous sponsors.
