There's Now A Pop-Up 'Game Of Thrones' Bar So You Can Get As Drunk As Cersei

A Game of Thrones-inspired bar is coming to Washington, D.C., which is great news for everyone who has ever wanted to sip wine as menacingly as Cersei does.

The bar, which will serve cocktails with names like “Dracarys” and “Dothraquiri,” will be slinging drinks through August 27.  “We began by thinking about what these fictional characters from Game of Thrones would drink, what cocktails would epitomize them and what moments should be represented,” says Bar Manager Paul Taylor. “We want our guests to connect the cocktails to elements of the show through name, ingredients, garnish, and glassware.”

For instance, The North Remembers ($ 15)—a yummy-sounding scotch drink—is served in a horn tankard. A tequila and grapefruit tonic, meanwhile, gets you shamed—seriously. The drink is called Shame ($ 13) and it apparently comes with a little bell to ring so everyone can see your disgrace.

The pub, officially opened for business June 21, is decorated with Weirwood trees, dragons, and, of course, the Iron Throne itself. 

The bar will specifically not be open on Sunday nights after July 16, however. “To watch it, of course,” said Angie Fetherston, who heads the group running the pub, in a statement.

“To quote the great George R.R. Martin, ‘there has to be a level of joy of what you’re doing’ and we believe Game of Thrones is the seminal show of this decade,” Fetherston said. “We didn’t have a choice; the three-eyed raven picked us. This PUB is our love letter to the Seven Kingdoms and we cannot wait to share it with fellow fans.”

Teen Kills Her Boyfriend In Accident While Filming YouTube Video

Monalisa Perez, a vlogger from Minnesota, was arrested this past Monday, June 26th, after fatally shooting her boyfriend, 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz, while filming a stunt for their YouTube channel. She was charged with second-degree manslaughter, a crime which carries the maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of $ 20,000, or both. By all accounts, it seems the shooting was an accident and that Ruiz actually helped plan it.

Perez called 911 Monday evening and told authorities she had accidentally shot her boyfriend. The police responded to the couple’s house in Norman County and found Ruiz with a single gunshot wound to the chest. They attempted to save the young man, but he died on the scene.

Perez, who happens to be pregnant, says Ruiz was excited by the idea of her shooting a book while he was holding it. He believed the book would stop the bullet, and may have even tested his theory on several other books. This time, however, the bullet did not stop. Earlier that same night, Perez tweeted about the upcoming segment:

Perez started the couple’s YouTube vlog in March to record the lives of a young couple who are also teen parents. Since then, they’ve uploaded several videos which often feature “stunts,” “challenges,” and “pranks.” The couple’s 3-year-old daughter also occasionally makes an appearance.

Here’s one of Perez’s videos:

The couple recorded their fatal stunt on two cameras which are now being held as evidence by the police. Perez told authorities that, after being shown another book which a bullet had failed to go through, she agreed to shoot from a foot away while Ruiz held the book to his chest. She used a .50-caliber Desert Eagle firearm.

Ruiz’s aunt, Claudia, heard about the stunt idea from Pedro and begged he not go through with it. She’s especially broken-hearted by how things have turned out:

“They were in love, they loved each other. It was just a prank gone wrong. It shouldn’t have happened like this. It shouldn’t have happened at all.”

In their final video, Perez said she was 25-weeks pregnant and looking forward to raising another child with Ruiz. They were planning to name the little boy Pedro, after his father.

There's Now A Tinder-Like App For Lonely Moms To Make Friends

On Wednesday morning, Good Morning America shared a segment on an app that’s been floating around for a few months called Peanut. Peanut is being marketed as “Tinder for moms.” Tinder is a hookup app for sexy singles, but Peanut promises something less sexy and more necessary: friendship.

Created by mom and CEO Michelle Kennedy, who previously worked on dating app Bumble, Peanut gives you a platform to meet moms in your area who are desperate for some like-minded companionship. After all, someone has to be the first parent in their friend group, and that can be a difficult transition. 

Kennedy herself went through the same thing when she saw her friends partying on Instagram and realized how lonely she’d gotten. “I just felt like I needed to speak to another woman who was doing the same thing as me,” explained Kennedy on GMA.

Basically, you tell the app a bit about yourself, including a photo and location, and then you can swipe on other moms to see if you have anything in common. Then you’re given the option to wave at them and if they wave back, you start a conversation. People are having surprising reactions to it online, from this guy who wants to know when HE gets an app:

To this very judge-y woman who is ironically telling moms to get off their phones from her Twitter account:

And, unfortunately, quite a few disappointed users:

But don’t despair! Peanut is relatively new, and there was a time when you would see the same guy ten times in a row on Tinder. The more moms who use Peanut, the more likely it is you’ll find someone you can click with. I hope this thing has got a million more users by the time I’m a mom, though I predict I’ll be the last parent in my friend group.

Spider-Man Surprises Unsuspecting Starbucks Customers In Viral Prank Video

Meeting Spider-Man would be extremely exciting, but you probably wouldn’t expect him to just be at your local Starbucks, picking up some coffee on his way to a meeting with The Avengers. He’s supposed to catch you as you fly through the air after an attack from the Green Goblin. Then you’re already screaming, unlike all these people who were calmly waiting for a caffeinated beverage before their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man dropped out of the ceiling.

That’s when they started screaming:

The prank was set up to promote Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that’s not Tom Holland in the suit. Though Holland is admirably lithe and able, he is not a professional stunt-man, unlike Chris Silcox, who is usually the body inside the suit. His account isn’t verified, but some guy named Chris Silcox on Instagram sure loves dressing up as Spidey and running around town, so I’m fairly certain this is him:

Mashableinterviewed Silcox and the ad group that came up with the idea—they had to find a Starbucks with high ceilings so they could build a false one for Silcox to crouch in, then tie him up in a harness to await his targets. It’s actually kind of nerve-wracking to watch. While some people are thrilled to meet a Marvel super hero, enough people screamed that I was a little afraid Spider-Man would get a cup of hot coffee in the face.

Silcox said the best part was, of course, the kids:

“When a very bright upside-down superhero appears out of no where, what do you do? Little kids seemed to take to Spider-Man best, which was funny! [They thought,] ‘Of course Spidey’s here … Why wouldn’t he be here to grab a Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino?! It’s hot out!’ Plus, if a mocha latte was thrown at me, the amazing baristas working with us — who were actually working and gave every single person we surprised a drink and a smile — would have helped me clean my Tony Stark suit in a jiffy.”

This whole thing definitely made me excited for Spider-Man the film, and also for an absolutely enormous cup of coffee. I mean, who knows who I’ll meet?

Eric Trump Got A New Haircut, And Twitter Thinks It Looks Strangely Familiar

Hairstyles can be Iconic, from Liza Minnelli’s signature Vidal Sassoon cut to the 90s mullet and everything in between. So when someone, especially a person in politics, gets a fresh new cut, they must be prepared to receive criticism. That’s exactly where Eric Trump now finds himself.

Here’s what Eric Trump looked like before his new cut.

Here’s the new haircut.

People keep thinking his new haircut looks like Richard Spencer.

Even Richard Spencer tweeted about it.

Where others are a bit more haunting in their comparison to fascism.

An unofficial but common name for this haircut has been a “Hitler youth cut.” As of the last couple of years the alt right have reinstated the haircut as part of their fascist beliefs. Whether Eric Trump intended on making a political statement or not, it definitely appears he has.

These Friends Have Been Recreating This One Photo For Over 30 Years

John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney, John Molony, and John Dickson got their photo snapped in 1982 while hanging out on vacation near Copco Lake in Northern California. The group was from Santa Barbara and partying like young men do, all only 19. What do teens do? Set the self-timer, of course, because even in the early eighties, teens were obsessed with selfies.

 In 2007, the group told the Santa Barbara News-Press that they knew this picture was special.

“Once we took it and saw the photo, we said, ‘We should come back and take it in five years.’ I said, ‘We have to vow to do it every five years,’ ” said Wardlaw, whose grandparent’s cabin was hosting this wild group. “We all thought, ‘In 20 years, what if we all don’t know each other?’ By vowing to take a photo every five years, it would be a way to stay in touch.”

And it actually worked. Every five years they meet at Siskiyou County lake, though they don’t have quite the same luxury of time that they once did. Most are family men with busy jobs and lifestyles. But they made it work.

“Mark drove all night just to get there this year,” said Dickson. “He arrived at 3 a.m. the day of the photo.”

There are seven photos all together, taken in 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012, but to be honest I was having trouble figuring out which one was taken when on their Facebook page. These fellas didn’t age much:

The group tries their hardest to recreate the image exactly, from sunglasses to jar shape, but occasionally things have slipped in the intervening years. It’s become quite a production, sometimes taking hours to set up. The lesson here is that if you want to take a yearly portrait with your crew, make sure it’s simple:

For 2017, the three original shirtless men committed to baring their midriffs for maximum accuracy. Their friendship is strong and so are their bods!

Trump Made A Significant Spelling Error In A Tweet – And Twitter Won't Let Him Forget It

It’s common knowledge that Donald Trump isn’t the most eloquent wordsmith. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that in a recent video released by the Trump administration, there was a massive spelling error: Miners was spelled minors.

Obviously, twitter jumped on this real quick.      

The jokes write themselves. 

Wow. Minors, maybe working in those clean beautiful coal mines. Makes me  nostalgic for that great asbestos insulation and lead paint.— Tersa (@TerryTerse) June 23, 2017

For everyone who is scared of Trump’s administration, thankfully he at least gives us a chance to laugh.

Trump Just Admitted Russia Interfered In The Election, And Then Blamed Obama For It

Trump’s Criticism May Mean He’s Finally Admitting The Truth

Telling on someone, but indicting yourself in the process, is a mistake many children make. Just ask any child who told an adult they were goofing off in class in hopes their classmate gets in trouble, when they just openly admitted to it as well. President Trump now knows what that feels like.

On Friday, the Washington Post published a story saying how the Obama administration was given a report stating Russia was interfering in the 2016 Presidential election and how they handled it. Then, they went so far as to say President Vladmir Putin was personally involved in the cyber attack to disrupt the outcome of the U.S. presidential race.

Shortly after, President Donald had something to say about the story.

Trump tweeted out his thoughts on the information given in the article, appearing outraged the Obama administration did nothing to prevent the hacking.

He then followed up the Friday tweeting by tweeting more on Saturday.

By criticizing and calling out Obama’s supposed lack of action, it seemed Trump finally admitted Russia did meddle in the 2016 election.

For months before, and after, his inauguration, Trump referred to any act of Russian interference as ‘fake news.’ The closest he’s gotten to  admitting what intelligence officials have been saying for months has been “other countries and other people” may have hacked the U.S. 

The problem is Trump now admitting the election that put him in the White House may not have been a true win. Even Sean Spicer said Friday that the President stands by his statements that Russia “probably” hacked the DNC.

Eminem Was Just Photographed With A Beard, And Twitter Can’t Handle It

2017 has officially gotten strange.

Twitter was shocked after photos of Eminem sporting a beard surfaced.

The rapper, who showed up to the Thursday night premiere of The Defiant Ones, an upcoming documentary for HBO about Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, was pictured with the two men, and something was decidedly different about his appearance.

It had been long speculated that perhaps Eminem couldn’t grow facial hair, or perhaps just decided not to. But it wasn’t for a lack of wanting to.

In 2015, he even tweeted about having “beard envy” over Jake Gyllenhaal in the movie “Southpaw”:

So the real Slim Shady’s new look shouldn’t have come as too much of a surprise.

But it honestly still did:

Twitter couldn’t stop staring:

One stan said Eminem had predicted the new look:

In a now-relevant 2014 tweet, a superfan combed through thousands of photos to find Eminem with any amount of facial hair: 

It may never be seen again. So get a good look at it now:
