I knew I made a great life choice living in New York. It just happens to be one of the stops on HBO and Time Warner Cable’s traveling Game of Thrones exhibition. The great part about this exhibition? It’s open to the public and free to enter! I was lucky enough to be able to attend the grand opening party last night in Manhattan, saw some pretty cool things, and met some amazing people. It’s one thing to see these props and costumes in pictures but it really is fantastic to see them in person. Take a look at what the exhibition has to offer.
