Giveaway: Bored to Death Wine Detective Challenge Blind Tasting at Pourtal

— by Caroline on Crack

Yes, yet another giveaway. Well, what better way to show that I love you crackheads than by giving you the chance to win stuff? This giveaway will win you entry to an exclusive event at Pourtal Wine Tasting Bar in Santa Monica. It’s so exclusive that only 70 lucky people get to go. Ten of which will be selected from my blog.

So here are the deets: To help celebrate HBO series Bored to Death, Pourtal and HBO are hosting this wine party this coming Monday, September 13 where attendees will get a limited-edition Bored to Death bottle of wine and compete in a bunch of blind tasting challenges to win even more prizes.

What the hell does wine tasting have to do with an HBO comedy series that stars Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis? Well, the main character is addicted to, of all things, white wine and marijuana. So since HBO couldn’t very well have an mj party, a wine tasting party was the way to go.

Now, I’m going to do this contest a bit differently. To win a spot for you and a guest, as well as that bottle of Bored to Death wine, email your answers to the questions below with your full name and email address to with “Caroline on Crack” in the Subject line of the email. Then 10 randomly selected individuals who answer both questions correctly will get a pair of tickets to the Wine Detective Challenge event.  The winners will receive an email with a confirmation and all the event details.

  1. What is the name of the character that Jason Schwartzman plays on the series “Bored to Death”? Hint: It is the same name as the creator of the series.
  2. What are the 3 main white varietals grown in Bordeaux, France?

Good luck!
