HackCancer, a group that organizes fun events to benefit charities such as Make-A-Wish and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, is hosting the "biggest Game of Thrones themed party in San Francisco."

Held at an actual castle (The San Francisco Amory) on the day before the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thones, the event will feature music (both live and DJ-ed), sword fighting, and various performances. The party will also include a dragon (although the website isn't clear about what exactly that actually entails).

This event is on April 5 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., but get there early because they're offering free beer from Ommegang Brewery from 9 to 10 p.m. Also for your imbibing pleasure, there will be a cash-only bar serving beer, wine, and cocktails all night. And while not giant turkey legs, there will be stuff to nosh from food truck selection including Red Rooster Tacos and Dojo Dogs. Also expect non-medieval themed activities like a photo booth and Tarot card readings.

Costumes strongly encouraged, but normal nightclub wear is cool too.

Click here for tickets; 100 percent of the net proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
