Every Marvel fan remembers the post-credit scene of the first Avengers movie, where Iron Man takes all the heroes to his favourite shawarma shop. While the film itself is set in New York, the Avengers Shawarma Shop is in fact based in Los Angeles. Elat Burger / Shalom Grill on W Pico Boulevard was the filming location for the memorable Avengers post-credits scene. Now Game of Thrones fans can find their own place to eat, and relate to their memorable moments from the series. A new pop-up called Haus of Thrones will bring the wild world of Westeros to 505 Main Street in Houston.
As per a press release, the pop-up will occupy a 10,000-square-foot multi-level set meant to take drinkers back to the epic series inspired by George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novels. Set to open on July 1, the pop up will last about four weeks.
Haus of Thrones is the work of Asha Holloway, an experiential marketer and the creator of previous Houston pop-ups including those inspired by The Office and Harry Potter. Haus of Thrones is Holloway’s most ambitious pop-up yet. The interactive sections designed to look like iconic Game of Thrones locations, including King’s Landing, The Infamous Wall of the Night’s Watch, and Winterfell. Throughout the pop-up’s run, Haus of Thrones will offer weekly game nights with life-sized game pieces, costume contests, trivia and more.
Holloway is also offering a few special packages for this pop-up, including a Bus of Thrones pre-party experience. Guests can rent a Game of Thrones party bus to cruise around Downtown, complete with music from the television series, a Haus of Thrones t-shirt, and VIP entry to the pop-up.
Tickets for the pop-up are already on sale, with timed entry, starting at $20. With House of The Dragon currently under production, the pop-up will surely hype up the fans even more.

‘Friends’ has been one of the greatest accomplishments of the television industry. No matter your age, your generation, it always happens to find its place deep down in your hearts. It manages to still make us laugh even after several rewatches. Well, good news finally arrived for the fans of the popular sitcom. The long-awaited Friends: The Reunion finally happened on 27 March on HBO Max. And Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington had something special to say about it.
Harington revealed his favourite scene from Friends in an appearance he made on the reunion episode. He said, “There’s a scene with David Schwimmer, where Ross is deciding not to pay for the delivery service of the sofa,” Harington said. “They start taking the couch up the stairs, and quite quickly everyone gets into trouble. This is not something that’s going to go up the stairs. David Schwimmer tells them to start to pivot.”
“The thing about that scene is it’s so simple,” Harington continued. “If you were to see it on the page initially, it’s three actors carrying the couch up the stairwell. There’s maybe a page of dialogue, and nothing really in that dialogue suggests anything massively comic. But what they do in that time in carrying that couch up those stairs is one of the funniest things I’ve seen on TV…“I think one of the reasons Friends is so funny is the fact that these six actors are masters of physical comedy.”

The Red Wedding year 2020 was a difficult year for everyone across the globe. The world is still battling the consequences of the aftermath. The COVID-19 pandemic was one of the worst scares of the Long Night we faced last year. Health workers all over the world are keeping their life on the line trying to keep people safe. These COVID-warriors are working day and night to prevent the further spread of the virus. Game of Thrones stars like Kristofer Hivju beat the infection with the help of these warriors. The Duchess of Cambridge and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke have come together to thank the nurses for their incredible services.
The Nursing Now campaign was launched three years ago. Emilia Clarke is an ambassador and the Duchess of Cambridge a patron of the campaign. It was launched to better connect nurses from different countries in the first-ever global social movement of its kind for nursing.
Clarke said on the campaign’s website that she was “looking forward to the Nursing Now Global Footprints event”.
“I can’t wait to hear from the many Nursing Now groups and Nightingale Challenge programmes,” she said.
In a video released by Kensington Palace, the duchess said, “Although we cannot be together at this closing of this Nursing Now campaign, I wanted to say a huge congratulations for the incredible work you have done over the last three years.”
“COVID-19 has highlight the vital role that nurses provide. We all rely on and it’s made all the more extraordinary when we consider the huge sacrifices and personal demands that have been placed on all of you by the pandemic.”
