Don’t underestimate the power of the Force.
fans, local DJs and several scruffy-looking nerf herders came in droves last Saturday to
-themed DJ night at
Dub Wars featured the bumping beats of DJs
. That’s right, this was no night at the
Mos Eisley Cantina
. Patrons got down to some sweet tunes on the back dance floor (voted
by readers) that, sadly, didn’t incorporate any of John Williams’ orchestrated themes.
Many bar-goers weren't aware of the evening's theme.
“I didn’t know what was going on when I got here,” one woman, who preferred her identity not be revealed lest a Google search link her name with a
-themed bar night, said. “I turned the corner and there was this
pointing his gun at me. He scared the shit out of me.”
Customers were presented with a deal no fan-boy could refuse: free admission for anyone in costume. So yes, there were Jedis, Imperial troops and at least one argument at the door about what qualifies as a “costume.” (
“Dude, I’m wearing all black. I’m totally repping the Dark Side.”
There was a plethora of costumes, trilogies playing on the TVs and dozens of different types of Star Wars memorabilia. A highlight of the night:
a fully-scripted reenactment of the Cantina scene from A New Hope
. Check out the clip from
below and imagine it happening at your local hang out. As if to end a perfect
well-choreographed light saber dance/battle
took place outside that left many of the more Force-sensitive patrons cowering in fear.
