VANCOUVER THEATRESPORTS SERVES UP KILLER COCKTAILS TO ACCOMPANY KILLER COMEDY
(Vancouver, BC) – To complement Vancouver TheatreSports’ upcoming improvised parody, Throne and Games – A Chance of Snow, Paul Belsito, bar manager of VTSL’s Neil Macrae Bar & Lounge, has created a trio of tasty potions inspired by the characters and locations in the popular HBO TV series.
- Tyrion’s Wine – represents the Lannisters. A sangria (in keeping with the sanguine theme of the show), this is a red-wine- based cocktail enhanced with Lemon San Pellegrino and fruit. It can also be made with white-wine for those who prefer their cocktails less ‘bloody.’
- Castle Black – symbolizes The Wall (which is a feature element in the VTSL production) and Winterfell. Zubrowka Vodka ( a Polish Bison Grass vodka), Kahlua, and Pepsi mingle to create a dark, brooding libation worthy of the Night’s Watch.
- Dragon Fire – Daenerys and her Dragons are signified in this fiery cocktail featuring Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, Ginger Ale, and Cranberry Juice. First introduced at last year’s run of Throne and Games – Laughter is Coming, this cocktail was so popular Paul is ‘resurrecting’ it.
Value-priced at $8 these special T&G (not G&T) cocktails are available only through the run of Throne and Games – A Chance of Snow, April 7 – May 28.
Tucked away at the back of VTSL’s The Improv Centre on Granville Island (1502 Duranleau Street), the fully-licensed Neil Macrae Bar & Lounge is a convenient place for theatre patrons to meet for pre or post-show drinks. Patrons can also take their beverages into the theatre with them to enjoy during the performance.
The Neil Macrae Bar and Lounge is open for theatre patrons Wednesday through Sunday evenings from 6:30 p.m. More information on Vancouver TheatreSports™, The Improv Centre and the Neil Macrae Bar and Lounge: vtsl.com
