Game of Thrones Trivia Night

To the most Noble House in all Westeros,

We are pleased to invite you to the King’s Landing in West Loop’s Open Books for a grand evening of the finest event this side of the Narrow Sea. Join the Queen for trivia of our history as recorded by Grand Maester George R. R. Martin.

Kindly arrive in your best Westeros, Medieval, or Chicago attire at 5:30 in the evening to register your House for the Maester’s trivia, which will begin in the throne room at 6:30.

Pose for your royal portrait as the Queen allows you to briefly sit on the Iron Throne. Enjoy Dornish wine and spirits in exchange for donations to the Night’s Watch. The first 30 in attendance will leave King’s Landing with your very own dragon egg.

Send a raven to your Allied Houses to gather together for this most excellent evening and win the great honour of First Place of Trivia.

We look forward to your presence. All proceeds support Open Books literacy and book programs.
