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.”

Drunk Man Wakes Up To Selfies Of The Police Officers Who Took Him Home

A Tasmanian man has gone viral for drinking himself into a blackout and getting saved from some bizarrely friendly officers. Australians sure seem to do policing differently. News.com.au reports that Reece Park had a wild night and ended up in a cab somewhere near his home completely blotto on Friday evening. The driver called the cops, and instead of slamming Park in jail, Constables Natalie Siggins and Jeremy Blyth escorted him home and left a selfie on his phone, so he’d remember how he got there:

Don’t worry, someone asked the important question:

It’s hard not to think about all the ways this could have gone wrong for Park. This image was taken in a pretty small town on a somewhat isolated island, and they apparently have some unique ideas on community policing. A few Queensland commenters on Reddit have said that officers are called the police service rather than the police force so as to seem more community-oriented. They’re at least in touch enough to know that the photo has become wildly popular on Reddit. The Tasmania Police addressed it on their Facebook page, writing:

Park and his saviors were even interviewed on the local news:

When asked if the experience might have turned him off drinking, Park only responded, “I dunno.” Hmm, think we know what that means.
