This Sunday, May 19, the world will be watching as the final episode of Game of Thrones reveals the fate of the Seven Kingdoms.
Last week, the penultimate episode of the series, "The Bells," garnered 12.5 million viewers during the live stream, making it the most highly rated episode in television history. That number was boosted to 18.4 million when HBO GO and HBO NOW viewership was added to the equation. This week, roughly twenty million people are projected to tune in and watch.
As Tyrion Lanister once said, "I drink and I know things." If you plan to follow in his footsteps, here are four places in Denver where you can hunker down, drink up and stay in the know as the mayhem unfolds.
