Game of Thrones Pop-Up Bar in DC – Ending 8/27

While the whole world gets excited about GOT (Game of Thrones), I still sit and wonder what I am missing.  I tried watching the show when friends started talking about it but I couldn’t get past the 2nd episode of Season 1.  It’s like Notting Hill for me.  I can’t understand what makes it a big deal.

Nonetheless, I hear about it week-after-week.  I see Facebook messages saying how excited they are to see the next episode.  Tweets and Snaps about GOT all over the place.  Still, all I know about GOT is the phrase, “Winter is coming!”

I go to Washington, DC a lot.  I have a good amount of friends there.  Visiting DC is always fun.

Suddenly, I saw photos of my friends from DC with GOT-themed photos.  They were checking in at the Game of Thrones Pop-Up Bar in Washington, DC.  Apparently, three bars were converted by local artists to different regions from the  GOT Universe.  How cool is that?  Although I never GOT to GO (Get it?! LOL!), I still enjoyed the photos shared by my A-lister friends.  Ha!

According to Philly.com, the pop-up bar will run up to 8/27 which is this coming weekend.  So, if you don’t have any plans for the weekend just yet, you might want to gather a few friends and drive down (or up – whichever way you’re coming from) and experience the GOT-themed Pop-up bar.  There is a wait (Approx. 2 hours) to get into the bar.  I think it is totally worth it if you are a GOT fanatic.

 

Here’s a tip:

The drinks, which will range from $13-$15, will be themed after the show as well, including the Imp’s Delight (a Tyrion-inspired drink made with two different fortified wines), the tequila-based Shame (a reference to Cersei’s infamous walk that comes garnished with a little bell), and the Dracarys (a sherry mai-tai named for one of Dany’s dragons. Two drinks will require you to leave your ID with the bartender, as one, the North Remembers, is a scotch-based drink served out of a horn, and the second, the Lady Mormont, is served in a bear-shaped glass. If you’re not a cocktail fan, Ommegang’s Game of Thrones inspired beers will be on draft.

You’re welcome.
