How does one pregame for Game of Thrones‘ final season on April 14? If you like puns, slot machines, and “Flea-Bottomless mimosas” the answer is clear: a Game of Thrones brunch at Maryland Live! Casino.
GOT is going big for season eight—as can you at an all-you-can-eat buffet inspired by the Seven Kingdoms. No, we’re not talking an enormous pigeon pie like the one at King Joffrey’s wedding or a roving Arya Stark-inspired oyster, clam, and cockle cart (too bad, those things would be awesome). The casino is all about the pun-y breakfast foods like “scrambled dragon eggs,” “Bran-cakes,” and “Little Finger-ling roasted potatoes.” Some names work better than others—looking at you, “Blessed by the Lord of Light roasted vegetables.” While others are in questionable taste: namely “Theon’s Sausage.” (One needs at least a cup of coffee before rolling with the castration jokes.) Thankfully, the kitchen shied away from a Red Wedding Bloody Mary bar or Seared Princess Shireen Stake.
As for entertainment, there’ll be trivia for chances to win prizes like a week-long “trip to King’s Landing” (Dubrovnik, for us realists). Tickets are $50 in advance, $60 at the door, and include a $10 slot machine credit if you’re feeling the luck of Jon Snow.
