A pub crawl of ice and fire. We’ve put together a list of pubs for you to visit to celebrate the return of Game of Thrones. There’s no need to do all of them, so just select what is manageable and have a good time.
Here’s some rules to live by:
1. Instead of saying ‘Cheers’ to your group you must say ‘Hodor’
2. Each participant must at least once order a beer and say “A Lannister always pays his debts”.
3. You must at least once take the black. This means having a Guinness or another black drink.
Try coming up with a few of your own.
If you’re not up to date, then there may be spoilers.
1. The Stags Head
A stag is the sigil of house Baratheon. You’ll probably want to emulate drunk King Robert here by having a pint. “Start the pour before I piss meself”.
2. The Boars Head
Here you raise a toast to the boar/pig that killed King Robert.
3. The Knightsbridge bar
You started this crawl a mere squire, now you’ve earned your Knighthood! Celebrate appropriately.
4. Gypsy Rose
The rose is the sigil of House Tyrell. You can show off your fabulous wealth in this bar by buying someone a drink.
5. The Bleeding Horse
The animal lovers can drink to the memory of the all the slain nags in the wars of the 5 Kings.
6. The Black Sheep
Here you drink to all the bastards of the 7 Kingdoms. You have to decide what your bastard surname would be based on where you’re from. (Snow is for the North because it’s cold, Sand is for Dorn because it’s a desert, etc).
7. Howl at the Moon
Finish here in the direwolves nightclub. If you are asked to check in your jacket, say “No, for winter is coming”.
Samwell Tarley was out in the Toners beer garden a while ago.
Foleys on Merrion Row will be showing the first episode of the new season. Watch in a private room with food and drink.
