Winter Has Arrived — A 'Game of Thrones' Celebration

Traditionally, the coldest season of the year starts on June 1 in Australia. If you're a Game of Thrones fan, however, you'll know otherwise this year. After spending almost every episode telling Westerosis that chilly climes are coming, winter is already here in everyone's favourite fantasy TV show.. Of course, as even Jon Snow is aware, something more than ice and snow has fallen on the Seven Kingdoms. The Night King, white walkers, an icy dragon, oh-so-much impending frosty death — you get the picture.

With GoT wrapping up its final run on Monday, May 20, winter is in full swing in the hit series based on George R.R. Martin's books. For those keen to both commemorate all things Thrones and commiserate over its upcoming ending, a party is about to be in full swing at Netherworld. Winter Has Arrived — A Game of Thrones Celebration is coming to the arcade bar from 7pm on Friday, May 17, so round up your dire wolf and head to Fortitude Valley.

While it isn't a King's Landing tavern, the Brunswick Street spot will be the next best thing for one huge evening — complete with GoT food, games and cocktails, plus a one-off White Lies Brewing beer. If you're keener than Arya Stark crossing off her list, her sister Sansa scowling at everyone, or Tormund Giantsbane asking after Brienne of Tarth, the first 200 folks through the door will get a limited-edition white walker dragon enamel pin. And if you dress up, you'll also nab ten free games tokens.

Entry is free, but your wallet will come in handy for booze, snacks, and hitting the arcade and pinball machines.
