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.
Snooze's egg-topped breakfast pot pie is made with puff-pastry dough and sausage gravy.

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.
Root Down's duck wings are served with a mango lime aioli.
1600 West 33rd Avenue
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.
Izzio Bakery (inside Denver Central Market)
Izzio's at the Denver Central Market bakes a lineup of rustic breads.
2669 Larimer Street
Brown bread, another of Hot Pie's favorites, refers to any type of whole-grain bread, usually made with wheat or rye. Izzio
Bakery offers a wide selection of rustic wheat, rye and sourdough breads
. Break bread with members of your house — but don't expect to find a loaf in the shape of a direwolf.
Hogshead Brewery has a sunny patio for summer afternoon beers.
4460 West 29th Avenue
If you have something in common with the Hound and find yourself wishing water
, Hogshead Brewery can help. Hogshead specializes in traditional English-style beer and keeps a selection of ales on tap — including a few drawn from casks. Now, if only they had some chicken.
