Eat like a character from 'Game of Thrones' in Miami

Dinner is coming: Feast on "Game of Thrones"-inspired meals at @BeakerandGray.

The finest feast of the Seven Kingdoms is coming, and you won't need to poison a mad king or slay a dragon to find it.

Wynwood restaurant Beaker & Gray is celebrating the April 24 return of HBO series "Game of Thrones" with lunches and dinners that celebrate the megapopular fantasy saga. Through Sunday, the restaurant's lunch menu will offer the Valyrian Grinder ($14), made with "village bread," pulled mutton and "Valyrian mushroom and wildfire." Don't know what that is? Then you know nothing.

Dinner, meanwhile, brings Ribs of the North ($17) — lamb ribs, dragonfruit and wild berries — which may or may not be wildling meat. Pair it with Manticore Venom ($11, with "Tyroshi Pear brandy," blackberry wine and "Fruits of Essos,") named after the spear-tipped poison the late Oberyn Martell used to kill the Mountain. The cocktail is available for lunch and dinner.

Be vigilant for locked doors or anyone brandishing daggers in the restaurant when you order Red Wedding Donuts ($11), Beaker & Gray's spin on red-velvet doughnut holes, also available for lunch and dinner. For reservations, which the restaurant recommends, call 305-699-2637 or go to BeakerAndGray.com. The restaurant is located at 2637 N. Miami Ave., in Miami.

If that's not enough entertainment (re-open the fighting pits!), know that Crown Wine and Spirits (1645 Cordova Road) in Fort Lauderdale will host a 7 p.m. Thursday, April 21, Beer and Bites Tasting with John Oteri from Ommegang Brewery, which makes "Game of Thrones"-inspired craft beers. Samples of Ommegang beer (styles: "Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale," "Take the Black Stout") will be paired with light bites. Info: $10 via CrownWineAndSpirits.com/Beer-Bites-Tasting-Ticket.

Prefer to speculate the fate of Jon Snow, vengeful Sansa and now-blind Arya in public? Miami Beach bar Kill Your Idol (222 Espanola Way) will host a Season 6 premiere watch party starting at 6 p.m. Sunday, April 24. Fun drinking game: Take a shot every time Hodor shouts his name.
