SUAMICO, Wis. (WLUK) -- One lucky Green Bay Packers fan was at Thursday's game for free after winning tickets from star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers set off a frantic scavenger hunt before the game on social media.

"It's really exciting, I'm still shaking," explained Tori Hrubesky, who won the tickets. "I was on my Instagram when I saw he had posted that and then another friend sent it to me, but I didn't know if it was real."

Aaron Rodgers posted a photo on Instagram with a caption underneath, telling fans he'd give away four tickets.

However, there was catch: Fans had to know his favorite Game of Thrones character and his favorite Green Bay-area restaurant.

Hrubesky said it was easy to guess the restaurant -- Chives in Suamico -- because she owns a boutique right down the street

"I know there was a picture of the side of the building, I'm really familiar with it, I go there all the time, and I got engaged there so I knew the building," explain Hrubesky.

Although the restaurant part was easy, she needed help with Rodgers' favorite character.

"I literally Googled, 'who is Aaron Rodgers' favorite Game of Thrones character?' and it pulled up an article and I had to read through the whole thing, but at the bottom it said his favorite character was Khaleesi," she said.

While Hrubesky came to the restaurant prepared, others did not.

"There was probably five or so before the correct one guessed it," said Logan Higgins, the general manager of Chives.

Higgins added Rodgers comes in all the time.

"He has always been a really good customer and has done tons for the restaurant," he said.

As for Hrubesky, the game is one she'll never forget thanks to number 12.

"I think he really cares about his fans, and I think it's an amazing thing he's done."

If you missed out on this week's challenge, no worries, Rodgers teased ahead on his Instagram to a challenge taking place next week.
