Last night Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa (aka Khal Drogo) stopped by Republic in the G.A.R. building, according to a post on the newly open restaurant's Facebook page. It's not clear why the actor is in town this time around. Momoa spent last summer in Michigan visiting breweries, rock climbing, and shooting scenes for his upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

In October rumors surfaced that Momoa might be purchasing property in Michigan for a brewery; however, he has since denied these reports. In a statement to MLive, the actor confirmed he is interested in investing in the Detroit area, but is staying focused on his acting right now. A brewery would have to wait until 2018, when he completes his solo film project.

Update: He also visited Punch Bowl Social, while allegedly filming a documentary.
