Valar Morghulis: Pictures from the Latest Game of Thrones Ommegang Beer Party

This Khaleesi's hand-made dragon egg IS ALSO A PURSE!!! OMG.
My current temperature is 102.3. Bronchitis! Nearly pneumonia! Don’t worry, gentle reader; I’m on antibiotics and getting lots of rest. This constant feeling of burning, however, has proven one thing: I am not really the Khaleesi, the Unburnt, the Mother of Dragons. I’d bet Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones never gets a fever… or... Read more »

Product Review: Fire and Blood, Brewery Ommegang's Game of Thrones Red Ale

My relationship with Game of Thrones beers started over a year go.  In March of 2013, Brewery Ommegang released Iron Throne Blonde Ale.  I reviewed it.  Then came Take the Black Stout, and the epic launch party by Lakeshore Beverage.  Now, the Daenerys Targaryen in me is most pleased. Fire and Blood Red Ale has... Read more »

A Wedding of Fire and Blood: Pictures from Brewery Ommegang's Game of Thrones Party

I'm putting my own pic first, for once!  Here I am, Daenerys Targaryen.  This is the fastest costume I ever made, it only took about 3 days.  ...Granted, those were 3 days staying up past 1AM.  Worth it.
Last night, I changed my mind about Daenerys Targaryen.  I used to think this character from A Song of Ice and Fire was overrated.  She’s called The Mother of Dragons, Stormborn, Unburnt.  This girl frees slaves, gets tons of male attention, has three dragons- overpowered to the point of ridiculousness, right?  Um, wrong.  After Brewery Ommegang‘s latest...

Most importantly, I’ve been planning a wedding.  No,... Read more »

King for a Day: Pictures from Dan Con and the Take the Black Stout Launch

The Joker and The Doctor- lifelong friends or enemies?
Last weekend, at about this time, I was getting ready for Dan Con.  It was my first time down there, and well worth the drive to Orland Park.  I didn’t stay long.  I had a Game of Thrones party later that night, but still got a bit of content to share. Dan Con was split... Read more »

This GEEKend: Dan Con and a Second Game of Thrones Beer

Wow, readers- my face was all over the Internet today.  The Official BioShock Facebook page featured my engagement story, and The Onion published an article using my photo.  All of my social networking pages have been flooded with these two things, over and over…!  I’m flattered.  :)  However, the inundation of links made it slightly harder...
