Television’s most anticipated show Game of Thrones is returning for its eighth and final season on Sunday, April 14.

If you don’t have HBO, you can still find out what Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister and the Starks are up to thanks to several places around Brooklyn and Queens.

These places are either hosting viewing parties, scavenger hunts, trivia night and special performances.

There will also be samples of whiskey made in Brooklyn at The Gatehouses at Kings County Distillery as well as music from DJ Raydar Ellis.
