Winter has come. Game of Thrones is back soon for its eighth and final season, and we here at io9 might be a tad excited (understatement of the century). To celebrate all things ice and fire—and everything in between—we’re having a little benefit event in Brooklyn this weekend.

io9 is proud to be hosting “Mother of Drag(ons),” a free drag show dedicated to that fantasy series we all know and love—this Saturday, April 13, at the Way Station in Brooklyn, New York. We’ll be featuring drag performances by Tyler Ashley, Patti Spliff, West Dakota, and others, and the Way Station is opening up an official Game of Thrones keg of beer to mark the occasion.

Here’s the flyer with everything you need to know:

As a drag queen on hiatus, a nerd, and a lover of all things punny, I am completely miffed I don’t live in New York... Good luck with the fund raising!
