Dub Wars featured the bumping beats of DJs Erin E C3P0 and Feathericci Skywalker. 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 SFR’s No. 1 Best Place to Dance by readers) that, sadly, didn’t incorporate any of John Williams’ orchestrated themes.
“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 Star Wars-themed bar
night, said. “I turned the corner and there was this Stormtrooper 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 Episode IV below and imagine it happening at your local hang out. As if to end a perfect Star Wars evening, a well-choreographed light saber dance/battle took place outside that left
many of the more Force-sensitive patrons cowering in fear.
