Office throws 'Game of Thrones'-themed wedding shower for co-worker

Bride-to-be Caitlin Revuelta got to be queen for a day at her office --- khaleesi for a day, that is.

Interested in Game of Thrones?

Add Game of Thrones as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Game of Thrones news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Her colleagues at Humanscale, an ergonomic office tools company, surprised her with an elaborate "Game of Thrones"-themed shower on Sept. 27 in New York City.

"I was completely surprised!," Revuelta, 27, told ABC News. "I was in a meeting, and when it ended, I heard the epic 'Game of Thrones' theme song coming from the kitchen. Of course, I followed the music and was amazed by what I saw."

Her marketing team had created an Iron Throne out of their company's Freedom Headrest chair, had avocado dragon eggs, a Castle Black cupcake holder and "GOT" beer.

They also had a blond wig and crown waiting for her to enjoy being pampered as the mother of dragons.

"We really have a work-hard, play-hard mentality," said Revuelta. "When we have office parties, we go all out."

Riley Andreu, a graphic designer at the company, said the throne took the most time to create.

"The throne has been in planning stages for about 2 weeks, and I worked on it for 3 days," she told ABC News. "We hid it in our storage closet covered by huge boxes."

Revuelta, a die-hard "Game of Thrones" fan, said there a lot of people in her office that are "just as obsessed" with the hit HBO as she is.

"Our Monday morning ritual would be to recap the last night's episode and share our theories," she said. "Now that the season's over, this definitely fills the void!"

The clever team had previously thrown a Beyonce-themed baby shower for another colleague, so Andreu said, "We definitely felt like we had to match that shower, and I think we did it."

"Wedding is coming" for Revuelta on Oct. 6 in Long Island, New York, just hopefully not the red wedding.

The Steakhouses

Entry into the steakhouse category of restaurants is appealing to people who may wish to be part of a business that is simplified by a limited menu and that caters to a well-identified market: steak eaters. A number of steakhouse franchisers are looking for franchisees. All steakhouse concepts feature steak,

but the range in service offered is wide-from walk-up to high-end service. The size of the steak served varies from a few ounces of a less expensive cut of beef to a 24-ounce porterhouse served on formal china on a white tablecloth. Steakhouses present the operator with food and labor cost combinations that are found in few restaurants.

It is common for food costs to be as high as 50 percent of gross sales, whereas the labor cost may be as low as 12 percent; compare this to full-service restaurants, with about 34 percent food cost and 24 to 28 percent labor costs. Another difference: A high percentage of steakhouse customers are men. They enjoy aged beef, in which the enzymes have broken down much of the connective tissue, yielding a distinctive flavor and tenderness. The prototypical steak eater likes his steak slapped on a very hot grill or griddle so that the surface is seared and the next layer yields a cross-section of flavors.

Meat that has been wrapped in Cryovac, sealed, and refrigerated for several days is called wet aged. The meat is not dried out. Dry aging takes place under controlled temperature, humidity, and air flow, a process that causes weight loss of 15 percent or more. The two processes result in different flavors.


Steak lovers rhapsodize about their favorite form of steak and its preparation. Tenderloin steak is the most tender, cut from the strip of meat that runs along the animal's backbone and gets the least exercise.

T-bone steaks are cut from the small end of the loin and contain a T-shaped bone. Porterhouse steaks,

taken from the thick end of the short loin, have a T-bone and a sizable piece of tenderloin. (The Peter Luger Steakhouse in Brooklyn, New York, is known for serving a single steak dish-porterhouse, cut thick to serve two, three, or four people.) Most steakhouses promote their rib-eye steak, top sirloin, tenderloin,

and roasted prime rib. The New York strip steak, served in hundreds of steakhouses around the country, is a compact, dense, boneless cut of meat.

A Delmonico steak (or club steak) is a small, often boned steak taken from the front section of the short loin. Sirloin steaks come from just in front of the round, between the rump and the shank. The age of the meat and its treatment affect flavor, but the amount of marbling created by fat between the meat fibers affects flavor even more. High-end operations feel that about a million people are needed as a customer base. They require considerable investment in building, fixtures, and equipment.

They may not be in competition with the Outback, Lone Star, Steak and Ale, or other steakhouses at the low end or middle of the market. Midprice steakhouses like Stuart Anderson's Black Angus chain compete in another price bracket. Forty percent or more of the high-end operations serve well-aged beef and may have sales of more than $5 million a year. Low-end operations may do well with sales of $500,000 a year. High-end steakhouses expect to have a high percentage of wine and hard liquor sales. Low-end teakhouses may stick with beer and moderately priced wine. The high end may stock Kobe beef, imported from Japan, which may sell for $100 a pound.

In the year 2004, steakhouses were thriving and expanding. The medical community generally has argued that red meat, particularly highly marbled red meat, is good for neither the waistline nor the vascular system. However, the popularity of low-carb diets (e.g., the Atkins diet) had many consumers trading their pasta bowls for porterhouses-and loving it. Steak connoisseurs say that the taste is exquisite.
