UPDATE 5/21: It appears the A Dance With Dragons dance party has been cancelled. You can still get your Game of Thrones party on at Rave of Thrones
Something lacking during Phoenix Fan Fusion is the number of night time events marketed toward con goers that doesn’t actually take place at the convention. Well, The Van Buren is looking to change that with a Game of Thrones Dance Party “A Dance With Dragons” on May 24 at 10PM. Advanced ticket sales are $8 + fees or at the door they will be $12. This is an 18 + event and tickets available now. The details from the Facebook event page: PARTY IS COMING The temps are heating up, but winter is coming to The Van Buren.
