'Game of Thrones' Season 8 May Be Delayed

Here’s How To Celebrate The ‘GoT’ Premiere In Style

We’re literally just weeks away from the GoT premiere, and naturally, people are coming up with different ways to celebrate the momentous occasion. While some places are just having watching parties and dinner specials, others are going all out with their celebration of the upcoming event of the season.

And there’s no better example than The Travel to the Seven Kingdoms. Made for “thronies” with a little more scratch to spend than others, you can honor the GoT premiere by heading to all of the places where Game of Thrones was filmed. Offered by Friendly Planet Travel, “thronies” can visit Croatia, Morocco, and Iceland, amongst other places. Their packages are all-inclusive, which means if you go on this tour, you’ll have your airfare, ground transportation, and meals included (but optional upgrades are, of course, available).

You can see King’s Landing, which is filmed in Dubrovnik, and Daenerys’ throne room at Diocletian’s Palace in Split, when you book the Croatia Cruise Adventure. This all-inclusive, 10-day tour starts at $3,099 per person, and everything — as was mentioned before — is included. Free upgrades to the premium hotels, and optional tours to other premier locations in Croatia and beyond, are also available for an additional fee.

Of course, if you’re a Thronie and international travel is not in your budget, head on over to Washington, D.C., for an interactive way to celebrate the GoT premiere.

Thanks to The Drink Company, the former Mockingbird Hill, Southern Efficiency and Eat the Rich spaces will be turns into five settings from the show. Fans can experience the House of Black and White and the Red Keep, where you can pose for a photo as House Bolton’s flayed man. There will be dragons and house banners, of course, and a full-size replica of the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones inspired drinks will be served, including The North Remembers, a mix of scotch, oloroso, and Cointreau with tropical flavors served in a horn; and the Dothraquiri, a tropical-sounding mix of rums and banana and cocoa liqueurs. Ommegang’s Bend the Knee, the Belgian-style golden ale that’s the official beer of “Game of Thrones,” will be served on draft. Guests are encouraged to bring their friends and wear their best costume to the bars, open now through August 27.

According to the Good Food Stories blog, the three bars are owned by the same man — Derek Brown — and he’s had the bars for quite some time.

“Though the spots are kissing cousins, related by blood under the ownership of cocktail and spirits expert Derek Brown, each has its own theme—Eat the Rich, cocktails and raw bar; Southern Efficiency, whiskey and Southern food; Mockingbird Hill, sherry and tapas. Pick your favorite or follow our lead and do a mini bar crawl, sampling a cocktail and a few bites at each location. For the latest installment in the Snapshots series on Good. Food. Stories., here’s a look at our evening at these three bars.”

Of course, if neither is your speed, celebrate the GoT premiere at home with friends and some Game of Thrones-inspired dinner. A Feast of Ice and Fire is the official show companion cookbook, and it has everything from drinks to desserts. Your guests can experience what it’s like to attend a feast at Winterfell, split a lemon cake with Sansa Stark, scarf down a pork pie with the Night’s Watch, or indulge in honey fingers with Daenerys Targaryen. Decorate the table with wooden bowls and cutlery, metal plates and crystal goblets to channel King’s Landing. Complete the atmosphere with some candles, have guests come in costume, and play some fun themed games before the show begins.
