From A Game Of Thrones Dinner To A Batman Exhibit, These 5 Events Will Have You Geeking Out

Comic-Con may not be here in Singapore, but that doesn’t mean that we have to live boring lives.

We found a few places and events for you to geek out at because let’s admit it, geek culture is the best culture.

So put on your superhero tees and let’s go!

1. Game Of Thrones-Themed Dinner

Who else thinks Season 8 of Game Of Thrones cannot come soon enough?

Since it’s going to be a while before we can get our hands on new episodes of the HBO series, here’s something to satiate your desire for all things GoT in the meantime.

The Bay Hotel is presenting a halal buffet inspired by the fantasy series. Aptly called “The Feast Of Fire And Ice“, this buffet will fill you up on a spread fit for kings and queens, and a whole lot of geeky GoT references.


Look out for Walder Frey’s Chicken Waldorf SaladRed Wedding Cake, Three-Eyed Raven mocktail, and freshly-shucked Drogon’s Fire Oysters that are covered with spices and torched.


Once dinner is done, head over to Bay Hotel’s rooftop bar, Propeller, and sip on Mother of Dragons champagne ($18), a drink containing dragon fruit balls (of course), that comes served with wisps of smoke.


The buffet will be available from December 22 onwards, and is priced at $58 for lunch and $78 for dinner.
