“The Princess Bride” 25th anniversary wine coming your way


Posted by on

Craving for something delectable to accompany your viewing of “The Princess Bride” for its 25th anniversary? Well, you’re in luck.

The Alamo Drafthouse has launched a line of signature wines to accompany “The Princess Bride’s” big year. Appropriately titled the “Bottle of Wits,” the wine line will include an “Inconceivable Cab” 2009 vintage California Cabernet and an “As You Wish White.” Disclaimer: this wine is not laced with iocaine powder. At least, not that we know of.

Both wines will be available for purchase at all Alamo Drafthouse locations starting on February 14. They’ll be available to buy online soon after.

“At the end of last year, we were thinking about ideas to do something really fun with our wine list at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. To solve that challenge, a group of us got together after work, opened a bottle (a time-honored Alamo tradition) and started to brainstorm our favorite movie scenes involving wine. Quickly The Princess Bride rose to the top. The ‘Battle of Wits’ sequence between Cary Elwes and Wallace Shawn easily stands toe-to-toe with ‘the Sideways Spit Bucket’ and ‘The Silence of the Lambs Chianti slurp’ as wine’s shining moment in film,” Alamo CEO and Founder Tim League said in a press release. “Although we can’t print it on the label because of legal reasons, we also promise each bottle to most likely be iocane free.”

Both wines will debut during Alamo’s “The Princess Bride” Quote-Along Feasts (find out about the events in Austin, Houston, San Antonio and Winchester, VA). Each of the feast’s five-courses will be paired with wine, including “Inconceivable Cab” and “As You Wish White.” Glasses will be offered for purchase at Alamo Drafthouse locations for $7 a glass or $28 a bottle.

Austin local creative firm Helms Workshop created the artwork for the wine boxes. They also helped design t-shirts and wine glass charms themed to “The Princess Bride” that will be available online with the wines.

So if you’re lucky enough to live near one of the four Alamo Drafthouse locations, it would be inconceivable for you to not stop by and try a glass of one of these two wines. If you’re like the rest of us, though, and don’t have one nearby, just cross your fingers that your state allows alcohol to be delivered to you by mail.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
