A lot of people love the craft of H.P. Lovecraft (see what I did there?). Fans of Lovecraft's pantheon of elder gods and the cultists that worship them also tend to like gaming (or so I've found). Well, if you're going to be near Fantasy Flight's Games Center in Roseville, MN early next month, you could stop by for their Arkham Nights event.
There's certainly no shortage of FFG products based on Lovecraft. You've got Arkham Horror, Call of Cthulhu: the Card Game, Mansions of Madness, Elder Sign, and Eldritch Horror. All of those will be running for two days straight at the center. And if you want to try out any of the various expansions to those games, you can do so as well (including ones that aren't quite available yet). There'll be various events like the Call of Cthulhu Initiation Tournament.
Pre-registration goes until October 2nd and nets you some pretty sweet Cthulhu-esque swag, including dice and a bag to put them in (you can always use more dice).
