Mangirling is a semi-regular feature that runs when the girls are too busy (lazy) to write their own posts, or when Johnny Rico feels the need to yell at the internet about something inconsequential. Read on for this week’s rant, chronicling some possible Memorial Day activities in King’s Landing.
Whether by sea or by land, come to King’s Landing this Memorial Day and take part in the many family-friendly activities happening today in Westeros’ beautiful capital city. Notable citizens from all over the realm and beyond have sponsored events to entertain, delight, and amuse everyone from ages 4 to 64.
