The seventh season of HBO's Game of Thrones seems like it just started, but the season finale this Sunday, August 27, is fast approaching (just like those white walkers). From pot pie to lemon cake, you'll want to eat your feelings as another season ends too soon. Celebrate (or mourn) with these Denver versions of the food seen on Game of Thrones before the final episode.

A lot of people give up on the gravy, but Snooze certainly did not. The breakfast pot pie delivers a lighter, flakier version of the classic dinner dish, all tied together with a rich sausage gravy. Just vanquish the image of the segue from Hot Pie's pot pie to Jorah Mormont's medical condition from your mind before you dig in.

If you stop at the Inn of the Crossroads, you'll be dining on whole honeyed duck. But the jerk duck wings at Root Down offer a tropical alternative to the traditional roasted bird. Just because the Game of Thrones characters can't enjoy Caribbean flavors doesn't mean you have to miss out.

Not even Ramsey Bolton would be able to pass on the Cajun lamb sausage from Work & Class. Also on the menu are curry duck-and-lamb albondigas (meatballs) and roasted goat — all for a feast that will make you feel like you're visiting Dorne.

When all else fails, have some more wine. Infinite Monkey Theorem's RiNo tasting room is open every day of the week and offers a casual venue for you and your friends to debate who the rightful ruler of the Seven Kingdoms truly is. Instead of tipping back wine from a goat skin, consider a more civilized can or glass. If you're in the eastern realms of Stapleton or Aurora, raise a flagon at the new wine room inside Stanley Marketplace.
