As HBO's "Games of Thrones" nears its end, fans are seeking ways to connect before it's all over. City Winery at Ponce City market, has designed a special dinner for people who want to eat and dress like the characters the day before the season 7 debut.
The dinner will be available on on Saturday, July 15 at 7 p..m. HBO is bringing back season 7 on Sunday at 9. The eighth and final season will air in 2018 or early 2019.
The meal will take place in the winery which will be adorned with candelabra and house banners at what's being dubbed the Feast of Ice & Fire with music from the show as the soundtrack. Dishes include beef roasted with leeks, suckling pig, honeyed chicken, baked apples, and an array of tarts and cakes. The organizers in a press release said, tongue in cheek, that traditional Dothraki raw horse hearts will not be served.
In addition to plenty of mulled and honey-sweetened wines as well as a classic mead, Beverage Director Mani González said she is creating specialty cocktails inspired by different aspects of the story.
Guests will also receive souvenir goblets.
“Many of us at City Winery are 'Game of Thrones' fans ourselves, so we’re putting a lot of love into making this special for fellow fans,” said General Manager William Baber in a press release.
The winery will hold a costume contest, and the winner will receive a $100 credit toward a future dinner for two, as well as a free pair of tickets to a non-sold out concert of their choice.
