Winter is coming as the long-awaited Game of Thrones season five premieres on HBO Sunday night, and even though it was a kinda awkward day for Comcast in general (lots of people hate them), their employees traveled to Westeros for lunch while you were enjoying that bland turkey sandwich.

Meanwhile, our good friends over at the Comcast Center nommed on Dothraki smoked turkey leg and roasted suckling pig while taking pics in a Thrones photobooth and being reminded that All Men actually Must Die.

They turned my cafeteria into Westeros. #GOT #Watchathon #Xfinity

Thanks to friend of Billy Penn Mikey Ilagan for passing along these photos of tasty(?) medieval food like fish stew and crusty bread boule.


Power is power. Here are some other people who had a much better lunch than you while getting mentally prepared to maybe see their favorite character die this season:
