The Philadelphia Museum of Art will host a "Game of Thrones"-inspired party on Friday, Nov. 24, as part of the museum's Final Fridays series.
"Jon Snow knew at least one thing – winter can be rough. Get ready for the season with a night geared toward surviving the coldest months," reads the official event description.
Below is the schedule of events. All activities are free with museum admission, which is $14-$20 per person. Those who dress in their best "Game of Thrones" outfit will get $5 off at the door.
• Beginning at 5 p.m., visitors can go on a scavenger hunt that pairs "Game of Thrones" quotes with works of art.
• At 5:30 p.m., there will be music at the Great Stair Hall. The DJ won't be Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor and now hosts "Rave of Thrones," but guests can dance to rare tunes and eccentric mixes.
• In the Dorrance Galleries, there will also be music at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Enjoy late medieval and Renaissance sounds from Piffaro, a sextet that performs on reconstructed period instruments. No Ed Sheeran cameo, though.
• Visitors can sketch armor and weapons in the galleries from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Materials will be provided.
• At 5:45 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., Wild Foodies founder Lynn Landes will lead a tour through the galleries. She will share the uses of flora and fauna seen in the museum's collections. The knowledge could come in handy when traveling the Seven Kingdoms.
• Prepare for Trial by Combat by taking notes from the Philadelphia Common Fencers Guild. They will be demonstrating three different weapon systems at 6 and 7 p.m.
• At 7:30 p.m., there will be a retelling of Shakespeare's Othello.
• Throughout the evening, visitors can play strategic board games like Stratego, Othello and Carcassonne. The goal is to get your opponent to bend the knee.
