Visit to the HBO Game of Thrones Store

1x1.trans Visit to the HBO Game of Thrones StoreThis post has nothing to do with food. It has to do with my obsession with A Song of Ice and Fire. If you have not read ASOIAF, get to it. George R.R. Martin may be the best writer of our time and each day that you have not read this series is a day wasted.

1x1.trans Visit to the HBO Game of Thrones StoreThis past Sunday (GOT day), I decided to hit up the HBO store. I knew they had recently put up some costumes and paraphernalia from the show. I hit up the Standard hotel for food (review will probably be written right after this post) and headed back uptown for the store.

If you are just getting into the books, Westeros is a great source. Just watch for spoilers. If you want to learn more about the author, check out his website.

And if you’re wondering where my loyalties are: “Hear Me Roar!”
