Sunday night kicks off the new season of HBO’s boobs, dragons and medieval fantasy saga Game of Thrones. Neither ice nor fire nor a lack of a premium cable subscription should keep you from seeing the show, even if you do not have HBO. If you know nothing of where to watch Game of Thrones in San Francisco or the greater Bay Area, these bars, theaters, and House Lannisters will be playing the season premiere for watching parties.
NOTE: This list only contains Game of Thrones season premiere watching parties scheduled the night of Sunday, July 16. For a full accounting of all of this weekend’s Game of Thrones trivia nights, museum events, and cosplay orgies, check this Facebook event list.
With Sunday Streets happening right outside on Valencia Street, the Stage Werx theater will be hosting an all-day encore of Season 6, with the Season 7 premiere playing “somewhere between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.”

SPOILER! This watching party at Oakland’s New Parkway Theater is sold out. But if you’re clinging to hope that you might somehow score a ticket, you can try begging for an available one on their Facebook event page.
