On the heels of #NerdProm, DC totally keeps out-cooling itself.
May 4th has become the unofficial Star Wars Holiday given the resemblance of the phrases “May the force be with you” and “May the fourth be with you.” I know right. Too cool!
We wanted to tell you about a few events we know about. Did we miss one? Let us know in the comment section below or on the onlines.
Eat the Rich (Shaw Neighborhood)
According to their Facebook page, this isn’t just a day but a whole week of events.
Driven by our staff, we’re initiating our first annual Star Wars Week, May 3rd through May 6th. We’ll be featuring a special Star Wars cocktail menu, passing out schwag and dressing up as our favorite characters. We’ll give you 10% off for dressing as your favorite character too!
Bonus: Every time the Mos Eisley Cantina theme plays during our usual playlist, Han Solo Cup shots are on the house.
Libertine (Adams Morgan)
Libertine chef, Greg Nibbelink, will channel his inner Dexter Jettster and prepare the following fare for rebels and stout troopers alike: Aunt Beru’s Tatooine Garlic Fries, Krayt Dragon Burgers, and C-3Po’Boys.
Star Wars puns are fun.
