Humperdink Humperdink Humperdink!

Bring your best giant and wronged swordsman and sail to the 25th Anniversary celebration of The Princess Bride at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar this Wednesday, Nov. 14, 7pm. The adventure includes The Princess Bride feast and quote-along with Prince Humperdink himself in attendance. Torture and miracles are likely.

Join other super fans and enjoy a fairytale four course meal designed by executive chef John Bullington and inspired by Rob Reiner's 1987 cult classic.

Screeching eel and seared R.O.U.S. are but a few of the beautifully crafted menu items served during specific moments in the movie. The feast boasts wine pairings from Alamo's private label – As You Wish White and Inconceivable Cab – fit for a princess. Chris Sarandon will participate in a Q&A after the movie and the film will receive the Alamo's famous Quote-Along treatment at 8pm.

Inconceivable! Tickets are still available for the feast here. Attendees will have an exclusive price for the limited edition Fezzik Bottle of Wits – a 20 inch wine bottle of "unusual size."

Be there or face the six fingered man's Pit of Despair.
