Fans aren’t the only ones gearing up for the season seven finale of "Game of Thrones" this Sunday. Restaurants are turning the episode of the hit cable program into a marketing opportunity, with plenty of themed menu items and events. From turkey legs to dragon’s eggs, here are some of the ways restaurants are bringing in crowds throughout the seven kingdoms.
2. The Cone of the North
A group of ice cream shops in Boston is inviting consumers to bike to the seven participating locations, where they will receive one scoop of ice cream. At the end, consumers vote on their favorite, and the one with the most votes is declared Cone of the North.
3. Feast like a king
City Winery’s Atlanta location is inviting consumers to dine like lords and ladies at its "Game of Thrones"-themed dinner. Held the night before the finale, the themed menu will feature roasted pig and braised beef as well as several drink options served in take-home souvenir goblets. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume for a chance to win $100 credit for a future meal for two and a pair of tickets to a show at the restaurant.
4. Battle of the brains
Aptly named King’s BierHaus in Houston is hosting a "Game of Thrones"-themed version of its weekly trivia night as well as a themed menu to go along with it. As guests strut their "Thrones" knowledge, they can munch on such show-inspired items as Dragon’s Eggs (deviled eggs topped with chicken Wiener schnitzel and homemade bacon bourbon jam) and Northman’s Dinner (pork shank served with apple horseradish, sauerkraut and Austrian potato salad).
