Are you going to be in the Washington D.C. area some time between June 21 and August 27? Do you like Game of Thrones and good drink? Do you want to argue the legitimacy of Queen Cersei’s reign in public, free from retribution? If so, there’s a pop-up bar for you.

Brought to you by Drink Company and Brewery Ommegang—which has crafted several Game of Thrones-themed beers—this temporary establishment will steep patrons in 3,000 square feet of Game of Thrones atmosphere. Attendees will be able to enjoy a Hall of Faces (made from plaster molds of Drink Company’s friends and family), a throne room that includes the Iron Throne, and, yikes, a Flayed Man.

The drinks have a Game of Thrones theme, as well, and the menu includes “Milk of the Poppy,” “Dothraquiri,” and my absolute favorite, “Shame,” which is made with tequila; because if you’re going to be shamed, you should at least earn it.

There’s no entrance fee, but drinks are going to set you back $13-$15. Hours and location can be found here.

As fans know, food and beverage appear prominently in the pages of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, a.k.a. Game of Thrones, and characters delight in their feasts as much as fans will delight in the pop-up bar.

But as King Robert would tell you, don’t go boar hunting afterward.
