Game Of Thrones: Season 3 Seattle Premiere Recap

HBO knows how to throw a party. They were in Seattle Thursday night to premier the 3rd season of their hugely popular epic fantasy series Game Of Thrones for the media (which for some reason included KZOK’s Sarah, her warm and furry Beaver, Ryan Gibbons, Will Dixon, and with camera in hand yours truly Scott Vanderpool…the first time I’ve ever acted as a photographer for radio), with a red-carpet parade of stars, a screening of the first episode of season three (It premiers on HBO March 31st) at the Cinerama Theater (one of the most technologically advanced movie houses in the world), and a party at the EMP fit for a King. Or quite a few Kings, as fans of the show are accustomed to. We can only assume that the reason for the Seattle junket (they did one in Hollywood two nights ago) is that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan: The premier was at his theater, the party was in the Sky Church at his museum, a large percentage of attendees not in the media looked to be local computer industry workers, and the red-carpet parade of the show’s stars were followed by a gaggle of players from The Seattle Sounders, who play in his stadium. Thanks to HBO for throwing a great party…we look forward to another season of one of our favorite shows, and particularly enjoyed the Game of Thrones Ale (A Belgian beer soon to be available to the public), but wonder why they served Jack Daniels and MacNaughton whiskey, and not Crown Royal?
