5 fiery Houston Game of Thrones watch parties to toast the series finale
Come Sunday night, May 19, the saga that is Game of Thrones will come to an end.
No more Westeros. No more Starks vs. Lannisters. No more Jon Snow. No more "Winter is coming." No more dragons ridden by attractive queens. And, more importantly, no more people complaining about how the show continues to go downhill.
Will the Mother of Dragons cool off? Will Jon Snow and Grey Worm face off? Many will hunker down at home in front of their flat screens for the finale's answers. But if you would like to view the final installment in a public setting, the following five places have you covered.
It's gonna be a free ol' time at this spot. Friends and GoT parties are welcome to check out the last episode at this joint, where it will be playing on all the TVs, as well as a projected big screen. There will also be custom GoT drinks available. 8 pm.
Camerata at Paulie's
Fine wine will be continuously poured at this watch party. Lots of Rhone Valley vino will be served, including Syrah, Grenache, and Viognier. There will also be a costume contest for the best-dressed guest and maybe even some GoT -themed snacks. 8 pm.
The Washington Avenue establishment isn't just hosting a watch party. Before it goes down, there will be a trivia night! Teams of six or fewer will be able to compete, with prizes going to the top three teams. (Here's hoping somebody might win some GoT liquor !) 6:30 pm.
This nonprofit spot will screen the finale on the big screen in the theater. Beer and wine will be available at the bar, and there will also be a raffle held for door prizes. The event is free, but since space is very limited, you must reserve a ticket for a seat. 7 pm.
Rudyard's British Pub
This beloved Montrose pub will close out its season of GoT watch parties with a feast that includes smoked turkey leg with a mead demi-glace, served with roasted baby rainbow carrots in carrot green gremolata and black garlic mushroom risotto. 8 pm.
