Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Travel Tuesday: Cheers To The Pacific Northwest

A bunch of gays + 19 wineries = our late-June Pride plans.

Damn, we’ve always had a passion for mathematics. And the above equation tops the Pythagorean theorem every time.

You can put your own math skills to the test at the end of June at Queer Wine Fest in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, part of the state’s Wine Country Pride.

Among the possible non-multiple-choice questions:

“Is this my seventh glass of Pinot Noir or eighth?”

“How many bottles of wine does it take to equal my normal two boxes per sitting at home?

And “If a really hot guy is 10 feet away on Grindr and another really hot couple is 12 feet away on Scruff, how long before we’re all riding a train together?”

Founded by queer winemaker Remy Drabkin of Remy Wines, Queer Wine Fest is the world’s first gathering of specifically queer-owned, queer-made and queer-grown wines—and the LGBTQ people and allies who love them.

Tickets run $95 and include pours from 19 different wineries, food, and live music from Camp Crush so it’ll be not just a happy hour, but a very happy three hours.

It’s an event fun enough to build an entire long weekend vacation around, so we hope to see you in Oregon at the end of Pride Month.

We’re counting down the days. (Yay, more math!)
