The time we have all been waiting for is fast approaching, and although the words “snow” and “winter” are associative properties, we aren’t talking about Denver’s springtime weather. We are talking about the Season 6 premier of one of HBO‘s most acclaimed series, Game of Thrones. 303 Magazine is giving you the insider information on where to participate in the premier of your favorite television show. First off, returning to Denver for a third year, HBO is presenting an exclusive viewing party for GoT Season 6, Episode 1 (See below for information on how to win tickets).
