Despite the warmer weather that’s graced the city recently, it’s “still winter in Chicago’s” Replay Lincoln Park.
That’s because the arcade has extended its Game of Throne’s pop-up bar in anticipation of the show’s final season.
As the countdown nears to the first episode of GOT’s eight and final season, the pop-up has revamped its interior with new art installations, photos ops, trivia nights and even themed drinks.
Upon stepping inside, I forgot that I was even standing in an arcade.
Everywhere you turn, there’s a GOT character staring back at you.
In addition, you can sit on a replica of the ‘Iron Throne,’ snag a photo of yourself getting beheaded, or stand between realistic looking White Walkers.
If you’re interested in themed events ahead of the season premiere, you can attend a Red Wedding, check out their “For the Throne” Ommegang beer release, participate in cosplay karaoke, or take part in the Wight Walk 5k.
Basically, there’s no shortage of ways to prepare for the finale.
Replay Lincoln Park is located at 2833 N. Sheffield, but I promise you, you’ll feel like you’re in Westeros.
Best of all, the pop-up is completely FREE so if you’re in the area, grab all your Chicago Game of Thrones friends and check it out because there is no better way to pay tribute to a show that has made such an impact!

TV Show Catch Up: ‘Good Place’ Ending After Season 4, ‘Dead to Me’ Renewed
In this week’s TV catch up, we’re looking back at all the TV show news you may have missed!
“The Good Place” to End After Season 4
That’s it. We’ve finally arrived in the Bad Place and it’s worse than we could have ever imagined. NBC’s beloved and genius sitcom “The Good Place” will end after the fourth season which premieres this fall. Here’s what creator Mike Schur had to say about it:
“After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show. Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons—just over 50 episodes—was the right lifespan. At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.”

“The Red Line” is Cancelled
Season one is “The Red Line’s” final stop. CBS canceled the show after just one low-rated season.
“[The show] did not get picked up for a second season, so it will exist as an elegant novel,” co-showrunner Sunil Nayar said at the ATX Television Festival.

19 Things We Learned from the Jonas Brothers Documentary “Chasing Happiness”
They were never meant to get out of Jersey, but thank god they did.
The Jonas Brothers reunion is the most unexpected reunion of 2019 but it’s one we’re most grateful for.
The world is a better place when Kevin, Nick and Joe are not only getting along but making sweet music together.
The Bros aren’t holding anything back in their tell-all documentary, Chasing Happiness, which dropped on Amazon Prime on June 4th.
They air everything out from their humble beginnings to their rapid rise to fame and the eventual breakup of 2013.
it also sheds light on their second chance as a band and how their journey made their comeback stronger than ever.
Though there’s plenty of interesting tidbits in the documentary (plenty of which I’ll get to below), I think the biggest takeaway is most likely, the inspiration behind the documentary’s title: “You spend so much time chasing happiness and the thing you think will bring you joy never realizing it’s in there all along.”
Nick Jonas figured out the secret of life.

17 Shocking Cliffhangers That Wrapped Up the Spring 2019 TV Season
Most of us are on a “love to hate” basis with cliffhangers.
We love them because they’re exciting and leave us with countless possibilities of what’s to come for our favorite shows and characters.
Yet, we hate them because they usually leave us hanging for a few solid months.
If done right, a cliffhanger leaves you feeling breathless, confused, and screaming at the screen at the top of your lungs. .
A thousand thoughts race through our minds: what happens next? Who died? Who killed who? Who is going to survive? What’s the meaning of life?
Yes, waiting approximately four months to see the outcome of a cliffhanger is borderline unbearable (and it’s even worse if a show has a midseason return date), but without cliffhangers there’d be nothing to look forward to and nothing to keep us invested.
