One of the biggest pop culture conventions in the Pacific Northwest is happening in Portland the weekend of Feb. 22. Wizard World draws in big crowds and big guests every year. Some of this year’s guests include Jason Momoa (Aquaman and Game of Thrones), Melissa Benoist (Supergirl), and many guests from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

What’s the best way to beat the blues after the biggest snowstorm in recent memory? Spending Valentine’s Day playing board games with your special someone, of course. Mox Boarding House, the combo pub and board game store in Bellevue, has some special food on the menu and lots of 2-player board games for you try out and you don’t have to figure out the rules on your own. Mox will have staff on hand to help you learn to play. The special event starts at 11:30 a.m. and goes until closing on Thursday, Feb. 14.
