Geek Crusade's Game of Thrones dinner: Wine, coin, feasting, cosplayers

It might have been April Fool's day, but Geek Crusade's Game of Thrones (GOT) dinner was no joke. On April 1, we hosted 53 guests at a sold-out GOT-themed dinner. It's the first of our Dinner Is Coming series, where we bring different fans together over food.

They feasted on a four-course meal prepared by Michelin-starred chef Osvaldo Forlino, at No Menu Restaurant in Boon Tat Street. On the menu - summer green salad, mushroom soup with snails, braised boar belly with apple sauce or almond-crusted trout, and pear poached in wine. All these dishes were drawn from the A Song Of Ice And Fire epic by George R.R. Martin.

Many of our guests turned up in costume, as Targaryens, Greyjoys, Lannisters, Tullys and Dothraki warriors. We had a Game of Thrones trivia quiz with giveaways, and even a solemn oath for GOT devotees: "I promise to be way too into Game of Thrones. From now, till the end of time."

Due to popular demand, we'll be hosting a second GOT dinner for those who missed out! It's taking place at No Menu Restaurant on May 5. You can sign up here:
