Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Three-Eyed Raven

Five weeks ago… I was a typical 31 year old male. I enjoyed spending time with my family, I enjoyed the outdoors… and then… something happened; that thing kept me inside for two straight weeks. I became obsessed with Game of Thrones.

I have to be honest, before this incident happened, I had only heard of Game of Thrones in passing. I had heard that it was an amazing series with amazing acting, amazing action, and an amazing plot line. That’s a whole lot of amazing. But I never got around to watching I, until I was contacted by the Three-Eyed Raven.

Not the real Three-Eyed Raven….but the makers of the official Game of Thrones beer, Three-Eyed Raven, OmmeGang. The national beer release was being brought to The Winking Lizard in Cleveland, Ohio and they were interested in hiring me to entertain at a feast. Yeah… you read that correctly… A FEAST!

If you have worked with me at all, I don’t just except any gig. Instead, I research and make sure that I can provide each client with exactly what they are looking for. If I feel that my services are not appropriate I will not hesitate to walk away. Before I said yes… I had to watch the first episode of Game of Thrones.

 

I was INSTANTLY HOOKED. When I was told that it was an amazing series with amazing action and an amazing plot line, I thought my friends were obsessed with the adjective amazing. Five hours and several episodes later I realized that amazing was an understatement.

The next day I immediately accepted the performance. There was one last question the client had for me, “Would you be okay with wearing a costume?” ARE YOU KIDDING ME of course I’ll wear a costume for this!

 

You see, this wasn’t your typical beer release. This was an evening at Kings Landing! Tickets were limited and it was highly suggested you wore a costume from the show. I believe the term costume does not do justice to what these diehard fans wore. The Winking Lizard was full of Knights armor. I’m not talking about rubber that looks like armor I’m TALKING ABOUT real ARMOR! I think one of the guests had a sword made of Valyrian Steel.

As I walked through the room I was in awe of what I saw. Men and women fully immersed in the culture of this thing. I was truly at home!

Long wooden Medieval tables sat over a hundred of these diehard fans. They drank from huge beer steins, ate full turkey legs and had the honor of drinking the mythical Three Eyed Raven beer. The best part of the event was sitting at the front of the room; an exact replica of the iron throne itself. Guests were allowed to sit proudly upon the throne that many kings had sat as they have reigned over the realm.

That evening, I went from a fan to an ultimate fan. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience to be surrounded by a group of passionate fans. I’m looking forward to where the Raven takes me next.
